A Fine Death-Eater Whine

Annoying Character: Paul started bugging me to write about him today. It started around lunchtime. The imaginary voice in my head said, "Write something about me."

Me: "Arghhhhh. Paul, go away. I'm in the ladies' room."

Paul: "Why should I go away? You wanted to write something about me last night, so do it."

Me: "I'm at work!"

Paul: "So write it in Braille."

Me: "Do you have any idea how difficult that would make it to edit?"

Paul: "Yes, but it would not excessively tax your faculties." *wheedling tone* "Come on, write something about me--preferably something about me and Lilith."

Me: "Are you sure that was a grammatically correct sentence?"

Paul: "Yes. 'Me' is an object pronoun; 'I' is a subject pronoun. Therefore, correct usage."

Me: "Paul, you scare me!"

Paul: "Why, thank you. Now write something about me, dammit, else I shall continue to plague you until you do as I wish."

Me: "Manipulative bastard, aren't you?"

Paul, dryly: "Imperio is my specialty."

Work: Work was nice and busy, today. The phones were moderately busy, with the occasional several minutes' break from having to answer calls. The studying of Braille continues. I think I'll ask for Book Three next week.

Not much else is going on, save for the character nonsense above. *rolls eyes*

Thought-Provoking: An interesting article by Tom Zeller of the New York Times on employers and the possible job consequences of incautious off-duty blogging by employees. Seen in caersidi's journal. Moral of the story: Friendslock or custom-filter if you aren't sure how your employer might take something.

Quizzage: Yanked from the exquisite journal of lordavon:

The English Teacher
You are 100% Verbose! Although you get bonus points just for finishing.

Okay, obviously you know a little too much about the English langauge.
Do you wear a sweater vest, bemoan high school students' inability to
write, and just generally act like a egotistical prick? If you said yes
to one of the three, you might be an English teacher. In which case, it
was unfair of you to take this test. (If you aren't an English teacher,
maybe you should stop reading the thesaurus for sport.)

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:
free online datingfree online dating
You scored higher than 77% on Verbosity
