That Would Rock: Volume Five

You know that Microsoft Word paperclip? The one that always pops up whenever you start writing something beginning with “Dear ____” or any other type of letter? It usually says something overly cheerful like “Say, it looks like you’re writing a letter, do you need help? I can help you!” and then when you ask it about formatting, it has no fucking clue. Well, I wish that paperclip was an actual person that popped up whenever I was writing a letter and said something a little too after-school-special-ish to be normal. That way, if it were a real person, or even someone dressed in a paperclip costume, I could slap the shit out of it and tell it to go to hell whenever it annoyed me.

I’m just saying, THAT WOULD ROCK!

  • Oh - So, somehow I missed out on the you leaving Xanga thing for a really long time. Oops. But today I was just thinking, "I miss Thomas' blogging... where is that kid?" and I clicked on you... and there it was - the explanation - you had left. I'm back to reading though. Damn. I'm a bit slow.

  • That's right- take your anger out on the guy in the paperclip costume that makes 'minor cash at a thankless job'.

  • Did you know that when you type "fuck you," it brings up a little "You're very frustrated and I can't seem to help you" kind of dialogue box?

  • There's an actual "kill the stupid Microsoft paperclip" game online somewhere. I think it's on
