The joyful day!

The answer ... in regards to I Was Only Kidding

The song in question is H.A.T.R.E.D. from Tonio K's first LP Life In The Foodchain. Tonio is a misanthropic genius who is one of my all time favorite songwriters. Every record he put out is worth listening to. If you listen to I Was Only Kidding and H.A.T.R.E.D. back to back, the resemblance is scary.

Happy Birthday is very much in the style of The Funky Western Civilization from the same record, but not as close as I Was Only Kidding.
The joyful day!

I think I'm in love

I have talked frequently about the admins in the offices of the corporation for which I work. A few nice ones, a few smart ones, and many many gerbils.

One of them just called asking about some business cards they had ordered. I told her they were shipping today and asked her "where are you?".

Her reply, with a wonderful grin to her voice

"I'm at my desk"

My reply

"Are you ME?"
