Flying Fingers of Doom  
For two and a half hours I had to fill out our bid on our typewriter because the city counsel doesn't use email and they had sent the about 30 pages via snail mail. Argh!

At least I had only to fill out 12 from top to bottom, the rest was just a here and there but my fingers are now on strike. I'm typing this with my nose. Seriously. *rotfl*

Speaking of snail mail - unlike the Deutsche Post who does ring the bell and hands over the mail, the other postal sevice called Regio doesn't and so we put (in spirit of ) a fake spider under the cover of the mailbox. Now, whenever they scream, we now it's mail time. =D

Now I gotta do the filling of personal files, which I had original planned to do when Dad came with the bid. *headdesk*

Oh and to celebrate with Google the Barcode... (Get your own)

Current Mood busy
Current Music I don't listen to music at work. I swear.

*LOOOOOOOOOOL* The spider idea is a good one *rofl*

Yeah, I hate those forms too, especially because they don't work. They get it, and they send it back, and you call and ask what's wrong, and you get some vage answer, ahhh!!

Ebil, I know, but of so efficient! =D Maybe we can put a ghostie and pumpkin to work as well... *g*

Or they give no answer at all. Just last month my uncle called one sponsor and they told him, they were not allowed to give that information. Huh? It#s frustrating, esp when you later find out that they decided to take a bid that is waaaaay under the norm.

Ah, bureaucracy how we love thee... not! I had a little run-in with that stuff yesterday and I could still throttle someone. *gah*

I love the barcode... going.

Where did you get the little pumpkin. I want some more tiny icons but can never find good ones.

It's great to pass office time. But don't tell my parents. ^^

I made it myself for last year's Halloween layout with a little ghost matching it. :) This year will be another one - maybe with a new pumpkin version but I really like this one.

*lol* Promise. Don't tell my boss!

I remember. I love tiny icons but there are never enough of them. I tried to find something to go with my Outlander obsession and that wasn't great. Still I do like them. I think I have your ghost somewhere.

You're got a deal, hon. :D

Outlander? OMG, the one with Cavizel and Myles? I love it!
