Quote of the Day (September 23, 2009); one more and it's officially a posting streak!

So we're back for a second day in a row. This is going to be a shorter, more standard post. Maybe if we don't aim for long, drawn-out posts, we'll actually update this thing from time to time.

Anyway, tonight the entire QOTD bureau were out living it up at a birthday party for a 1 year old. Besides being generally adorable (and lethal to the structural integrity of his birthday cake), he got some tremendous birthday presents, including something awesome called Counting Maracas. Multiculturalism and numbers, together at last. As a society, we're seriously getting close to Hooked on Monkey Fonics:

Speaking of birthdays, I would like to lament in print (well, if you print this blog post out, it will be in print. Go ahead. I'll wait.) the passing of the greatest greeting card company ever, Squibnocket Cards. It was the card of choice here at QOTD, and we would distribute them for any occasion that called for a card (um, birthdays). Our favorite gift store, Paper Skyscraper (PLUG!) here in Charlotte used to carry them. I've always believed in the omnipotence of the internet, but apparently it's too much to ask to find an image of the love card that starts, "Here I am, rock me like a hurricane is just my way of saying we should probably go out sometime." It goes on to be even more awesome. Since I can't find that one, this one will have to do. Consider it your reward for a job well done:

Now that Squibnocket is out of business, I guess it's back to Garfield cards for us. I hear he hates Mondays, but loves lasagna! Comedy gold!

Anyway, onto today's quote, from the early standup of one of our favorites, Norm MacDonald:

"I used to be in good shape, when I was younger. Ah man, I looked good back then. You should've seen me back when I was That's when I looked good. One. Oh man, I was young and fresh. I could show you pictures of me from back then, and you wouldn't recognize me. I've gone to hell. Hell in a handbasket as my great uncle would say. I even looked good for my age then. People would come up to me and say, 'What are you, zero?' And I'd say, no, 'I'm one over here.' And they'd say, 'You don't look a day over zero.' And I'd say, 'No, I must insist, I'm one.'"

I am very excited that QOTD has returned. It brings some spice to an otherwise typically monotonous work day. Unfortunately, my workplace has blocked you, I must use my imagination to discern what hilarious videos have been posted. WHAAAANT WHAAOONT.

QOTD makes me happy.
