I got turned on to Ride by Zoney, as he knew I loved the Catherine Wheel. I liked Nowhere a lot.

I don't know what the average age level is at your job, but consider the one I'm at - I'm not fussed if other 19 year olds write in text speak. It's sort of culture now. I am, however, more concerned if full grown adults do. And I know a lot that do. That is incredibly sad.
I love full grown adults who don't get abbreviations. Like my mother, who uses "lol" for "lots of love". I haven't had the heart to break it to her that it means "laugh out loud", and she probably only uses it in texts to me anyway.

what the fuck. i check emails on my blackberry (cuz i'm sooooooo important) all the time and if i were to reply to one, the only way you'd know it was on my blackberry versus me sitting at a computer is that dumb signature they tack on at the end "sent using my blackberry blah blah i'm so cool"

So, nearly new thread time. Khan, I don't suppose you could let me know what unused threads we have lying around? I know there's Penistone ...

Well yeah, I think the Replacements go without saying. But Husker Du, they are my all time favourite band, so I brought them up on the odd chance you may have liked them when they were around, maybe seen some shows or something.

And from that, I would of course say that you need to listen to them more.

At least she doesn't use it for "love our lord".

You're an exception. I refuse to get a blackberry; I'm the only exec at my company devoid of one. I have a deal with my boss: the day I do not reply to an e-mail in prompt fashion, I'll go and order one. Otherwise, fuck that. I'm as loyal as can be and I work my ass off for them, but I do not want that tether.

I'm so out of touch that when people talk about Blackberries, I instantly think of the berries that make awesome jam, and I honestly couldn't tell you what the technological device looks like.

But this might have something to do with the fact that I neither desire nor can afford every new technological accessory.

ugh, i can't wait until search is done. all i get via search is penistone.

anyway...
- penistone (duh)
- wittenoom (is this a duplicate? i could've sworn we already did that and i know at some point two of us made the same thread/city at once)

surprisingly, that's all i see. i could've sworn there was another one but i guess it's been used.

I do hope you made that up on the spot and nobody seriously uses it that way.

Though it would be kind of appropriate in an ironic sort of way ...

I never did get to see them Live, no. The Replacements do go with out saying, but they're so good that you have to mention them anyway.

Bonnie, color me inspired, in the next week or so I shall be doing some Husker Du listening.

Yeah, we've done Wittenoom aaaaages ago.

So I guess we'll move onto Penistone, the little thread that Bonnie killed.

i don't blame you at all. and i definitely do not doubt about your loyalty and ass-working. i assume you can check work emails from your home computer? (i can, and i feel like a loser whenever i do but on my days off i've got to clean out my inbox otherwise i'll come back to 200+ unread emails)
