We're running another Stone Johnson cut today. I'm not sure he knows the difference between Phish and Fish Sticks but he does like the doobie smokin. Along with a tape recorder it appears he also owns a guitar with at least 4 strings. Life is good for Ole' Stone...
Through my travels I've met more than a few interesting people. Today you get to meet one of them. Stone Johnson is a fellow I met somewhere around New Orleans though I'm pretty sure he is originally from Jersey if not Mars. Not knowing if Stone is literate much less if he owns a computer I sent him a tape recorder, pizza coupons and a note that simply read, "Start Talking." What came out of his mouth makes me believe that the Mayan's are right and we could very well be nearing the end...

While perusing Facebook this morning I noticed it to be Ash Wednesday. At first I thought this was just a clever thing my friend Ashley came up with to celebrate her birthday but the closer I looked in to it I noticed this has been around for a couple of years at least.
Looking further in to it I realize people are giving up luxurious items in the form of Lint. I know, it sounded weird to me at first too but by my 3rd cup of coffee this morning I was on board! So I came up with this great idea to help others in the process. For the next 40 days we are going to collect all the lint from our dryers and turn it in to clothing for the homeless.
My friend Will has graciously volunteered to help us out and with him being a Grand Master Tailor on World of Warcraft I expect nothing but great things from him!
Please send all Lint to:
4045 George Busbee Pkwy
Kennesaw, GA 30144

It's a Hard Knock Life...
Most of the people in my office are out of town this week for various reasons. As luck would have it that makes me "Boss" by default! So for my first order of business I changed our hours to open earlier in the day and didn't tell anyone. I followed that up by firing a shipping guy who was late. Fair or not it set an example to the rest of the crew and things have been moving smoothly ever since.
My second order of business was to balance the lunch budget. My company is very generous and buys lunch for its employees daily but sometimes it can get out of hand. To remedy this we had Chinese today and five people ate for $36. Not bad, but considering $36 could feed 500 people in China it's not good either and I plan to get it even lower tomorrow.
Finally to cut out Overtime for the people that did make it to work on time this morning I have unplugged the time clock. This will show up as 8 hours of work but they will really be doing 12.
Tomorrow I plan to tackle World Peace if my co-workers ever untie me from this chair...
