Where exactly I’ve been… January 9, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — K @ 2:06 pm

Hello all! I apologize for the extremely long delay in my posting.  But I have a perfectly valid explanation.  You see, I left my semi joke of a desk job in October for a better paying, promotion-getting new job with another company.   I worked in marketing at said new company for exactly a month until my boss called me into his office on the morning of December 11th, and there was a woman in a suit from HR sitting there. She asked me if I wanted water and I was all like, “Um, no”.

“I’m sure you know the company is going through a tough time right now,” my boss said.  “And unfortunately, we’ve lost the funding for your position.  It’s not personal.  I’m going to leave now and this woman from HR will explain your severance to you.” And that was it.  I had to hand in my ID card right away, pack up my stuff and peace out (but at least I took my pilot G2 pens with me).  So here I am: on unemployment and still living in NYC.

Failings, Kerry Style December 15, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — mallori612 @ 8:14 pm

The blog hasn’t been updated in a month, and I feel ashamed, and guilty.  A lot of it has to do with Kerry abandoning memyselfandhi.  I don’t think the abandonment is permanent, though, so hopefully she’ll be back soon to update everyone on the latest Karl news, cheese reviews and FAILings….

…speaking of failings….

alabama-football

It is standard practice to name buildings or rooms on college campuses after alums who donate hefty sums of money.  But what do you do when the donor’s last name is “Fail”?  That is the situation the University of Alabama found itself in recently when trying to determine what to name after Mobile native James M. Fail.

But, those crafty Alabamans figured it out.  The visitors’ locker room at Bryant-Denny Stadium will now be known as “The Fail Room.”  har-de-har-har.

“And there must be something about San Francisco and he because it’s like I heard on Fox News today, it’s like a truth serum where when he’s there, he seems to be more candid, and remember it was there that he talked about, there you go, the bitter clingers, the cling-ons, all of us, I guess, you know holding on to religion and guns and, um, so something about he being there in San Francisco.”

 

Failure is Funny October 13, 2008

Sometimes at work, you just really need to smirk at something stupid.  For me, that thing is Fail Blog.  I’ve always had a fond love of seeing people trip, fall, wear jorts, and I guess, Failure overall.

Here are a few of my favorite failures:
