More Gaffigan!

The following video was taken in three parts. I’ll post the first half today, and the last two within the next two days. This is an earlier show from Jim Gaffigan and since it was shown on Comedy Central, he doesn’t swear. Here he talks about crooked glasses, Indiana, New York and drinking bottled water. Very funny stuff. But don’t take my word for it, I’m one person. Watch it for yourself and enjoy!

Electricity, Eeeelec-tricity!

I was working at a good pace at about noon today when ZAP the electricity snaps off, plunging myself and my coworkers into darkness. I sat there, blinking, then looked outside but found nothing really unusual or stormy. It was dreary outside, but there wasn’t any lightning. Must’ve been a fuse or something (“Don’t anybody move! A fuse is out.” – from A Christmas Story). There were a few mutterances like “What the hell was that all about?” I decided to wander out of my room. Maybe, just maybe we would be evacuated. Nah. I just gave our manager a blank look and then the electricity snapped back on. That was my cue to go to lunch.

On my way back, I noticed that the traffic lights on the street near my office were out. When I got back to work, the offices were dark and people from other parts of the building were outside using that time to suck up some nicotine and bond. I went in and joked with my coworkers who decided to stand around the lobby. The electricity was out for an hour this time. Once it hummed back on, I went back to my desk. Isn’t this exciting so far?

I had to send an email to my manager, and just when I was about to send it, the electricity popped back off again. From the depths of the office across the hall, I hear “Aw SHIT!” I started laughing and the lady who swore started laughing too, but out of growing frustration. Apparently she was in the midst of some work too.

The electricity came back on again and stayed on. I was just totally amused by the swearing. The lady just doesn’t seem like the kind to swear, but I’ve heard her swear before, just not so loud. We were all thinking it, she just came out and shouted it.
