Joke forwarded from YS III

Doctor Dave had slept with one of his patients and felt guilty all day long.

No matter how much he tried to forget about it, he couldn't.

The guilt and sense of betrayal was overwhelming.

But every once in a while he'd hear an internal, reassuring voice in his head that said:

"Dave, don't worry about it. You aren't the first medical practitioner to sleep with one of their patients and you won't be the last.

And you're single. Just let it go.."

But invariably another voice in his head would bring him back to reality,


"'re a vet".

Laith Rocks My Socks

Laith of Monkeyhub is a flipping genius. You know, the type you'd invite round for tea and Maltesers. If you need evidence of this, check out Low Morale.

"Low Morale is a series of animations portraying one manís struggle to cope with the soul-sapping, will-to-live draining, life-force mugging, morale crushing experiences of work."

My personal favourite is [ 9 ] fish meh but I also have a soft spot for [ 11 ] condition meh because this happens in the office where I work every single day, come rain, come shine, come bloomi' blizzard. Well except for the being smashed to a pachillion rather small and rather cold pieces part.

(Also, check out JCB song. Genius.)

Sorry, those last few posts were to annoy the lil' un.

We often shout things to each other across the hall that separates our rooms. She kept saying stuff, I'd blog it and then shout "Check the blog!"

Oh, what fun can be had with wireless connections.

YS Chronicles: You're Lame

Younger sister: Your blog about calculator. It was not that unreasonable for him to ask for a scientific calculator. It's not like you're a baker or something.
Saima: Accountants don't tend to use scientific caculators.
Younger sister: You're lame.

YS Chronicles: Pic Wars

Younger Sister: I told you not to put that picture up, I wish I'd never showed you.
Saima: Well he shouldn't get pictures taken with make-up and girl's clothes on then.
Younger Sister: I can't believe you did that to him!
Saima: He has done that himself.

Boss Wars

Boss: Saima, do you have a scientific calculator handy?
Saima: No. Though I do often get the urge to perform random cube roots and know what pi is to ten decimal places...perhaps I should carry one around with me.

Most people who visit this site do so because they searched for "saima" at Google. I'm not the Lollywood actress they were probably looking for.

Happy birthday to you,
I surfed, as you do,
I saw an hideously ugly weblog with a pink background and lime green text,
And I thought it was you.

Now I just need to figure out how to give this weblog the bumps.
