Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.

It's five thousand for kissing, ten thousand for snuggling... End of list.

I do like this title.

Sir, it's not an offence to let your cat eat your bacon. Okay? And we don't arrest cats, I'm very sorry.

We work in a "drug free environment", though there is no drug testing.

One of the first times my bosses left me alone, Jeff (the more hippy-ish boss) said, "Close the door if you're going to get stoned." I couldn't tell if he was joking. (I'd never done anything to give the impression I smoked pot.) I think I said something like, "I wouldn't get much programming done."

You should know I'm a big deal in the Resistance.

If I'm ever given six months to live I think I'll take up Heroin.

This is also my brother's plan.

We work in a "drug free environment", though there is no drug testing. So unless you walk in on someone indulging, there is no way to prove that someone is working under the influence. Instead we get to suffer under their abuse.

Ha! Yeah, the guy who owns/runs our company is the biggest cokehead I've ever seen. Last year at the Christmas party, he apparently brought extra for everyone to share! You know, in the spirit of the season. So I don't think drug testing will be coming in any time soon.

This is the same guy who had his driving license taken away last year for DUI. Classy fella.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

Heh. I feel that way about opiates. Mmmmm percocet. The oxy thing was the first time I ever felt a flicker of compassion for Rush Limbaugh because that stuff has got to be MAD fun.

Mmmm. Morphine. Nom nom nom.

How many Buffistas did I call while doped up on morphine? Hands up!

"This bar smells like kerosene and stripper tears."

Yeah, but the abuse is what should get them fired.

Disclaimer: I am completely and utterly against drug testing in any occupation that does not affect the physical safety of other people.

I have a puckish side that will not be denied.

New thread!

We should get better mileage in this thread.

Half an hour, and I am in burrito land.
