Professional Phone Call Fun

I found a new way to have fun while at work, making professional phone calls. Of course, these are not real professional phone calls they are just meant to sound that way. Here is the premise, since the majority of your friends do not have your work phone number they will not know who is calling them when they number appears on their phone's display. All you have to do is sound very formal and act like you are calling from a company to talk with them about a job. My first attempt at this did not go very well, mainly because about three sentences into the conversation I started to laugh, but next time will definitely go better! Here is the transcript of the phone call: person answering: "Hello...?" me: "Hi I'm calling for *insert full name here*" person answering: "Hi, this is she" *said in a very professional tone* After hearing her say that I couldn't help but laugh. Yes I know I'm a terrible person, but this will definitely keep me amused for a while! =)

Leptodactylous (lep-tuh-DAK-tuh-luhs)

One of the bookmarks I have saved in my browser is a very nice word a day site. I really like this site because it supplies some very interesting words that are not common, and are rather fun to read and say. The name of this post is one of those words, yesterday's word actually. Leptodactylous (lep-tuh-DAK-tuh-luhs) adjective: having fine, slender digits. There are very few times you will ever have a chance to use this word in your life, unless you have a foot fetish. =p Another nice feature of the site is that each week the words are given some type of theme, last week was "words formed using combining forms." I know that makes no sense but if you go the site and check out the information they provided on each word it is rather interesting actually. These words can even make the most excerebrose people seem truly palmary. =p

Walk to Cure Diabetes

On October 30th I will be participating in a walk to raise money for juvenile diabetes research. In order to raise money I need people like you to donate. If you want to donate please click on this link to donate. You don't have to feel the need to donate a lot of money if you don't have it, any amount helps. =) Thanks everyone!
