So, my company's moving.  The admin staff and the industrial hygiene staff moved (mostly) over the weekend to one location, with the environmental and engineering staff moving to a completely different location at a later date. On of our company's owners was cleaning out his office and he's got an alleged humidor with a couple of boxes of cigars in it.  I see one of our project managers and his flunky going through (with the owners permission) and taking the box.

A few minutes later, they hand over said smokables to a guy who knows a guy that thinks he can restore them (not being a smoker, I have no idea that this could even be done).  That's when they reveal that it's an entire box of Cuban cigars that the owner got... somewhere. So, what's my response? "Fancy cigars. Why don't you smoke 'em already? Puff, puff! Go, go, go, go, go!"

Nobody got it, even the guy who watched Futurama.

It's a thing.  It's like a plan, but with more greatness.

I finally got to throw another show line out there today. At work when I was getting ready to leave our receptionist was giving high fives in the air, and asking us "not to leave her hanging." In true Morgan style I said, "Will someone high-five her so that we can continue with this meeting." Of course, no one got it.

Just moved to a new place, but during the hunt I couldn't help but reminisce "I, Roommate"

"Alright what's the catch?"
"Oh no catch, although we *are* technically in New Jersey"
"Not one place remotely livable!"
signatures make me feel like it's 2006 again

Was having lunch at the local buffet today with the wife and daughter.  Just as we were finishing a huge group with a bunch of little kids came in an was sitting at the row of tables next to us.  One woman said to me "I bet you're  glad you're done and leaving when you saw us coming."

I said "I wasn't saying that.  I was certainly thinking it loudly though.".    :biggrin:

So, the new guy at the office sits behind me at our new office.  He's reviewing some map or another and just says, "Interesting."

To which, my immediate, and correct response, was, "No, wait. The other thing. Tedious."

He chuckled politely, and went back to what he thought was interesting.

I used that one on the wife the other evening.  She didn't recognize it as a 'rama quote and was somewhat miffed at me.  :smirk:

So anyway, backgound:  an organization I belong to got the local city to donate an abandoned building and we moved it to our site (it's not a very large building) and have been restoring it.  When the building was abandoned buy it's original owners, a short lived museum took it over.  They quickly went defunct and the building sat empty for many years until we came along.  So after we got it moved we learned that another organization in another city actually had the title to the building, it having been given to them by the museum when it dissolved.  So fast forward to today, we learned a rather amusing fact about one of the interior fittings and were discussing how to restore it.  Now our activity has more than it's share of what we like to call "rivet counters" - obsessive nerds that will point out everywhere yours differs from the real thing in any minute detail.  The prevailing opinion is "It's our building, we can do what we want", which I totally agree with.  But I noted "Although, to be technically correct (the best kind of correct), it's really ${OTHER ENTITY}'s building".  :crylol:
