Fine day for Doc to be off.

Between myself and Woody, we know two jokes. Woody's is about a sky diver and a barbecue explosion. Mine is about two deaf mutes who whip out their units. We went with Woody's for the nasty joke at 5:40 this morning.

You see, Doc is off sick today. And he is the one who finds the nasty joke. He is also the one who keeps a backup joke handy in case of emergencies. Apparently, he used the backup joke recently, because it is no longer in it's secret hiding space. And he emailed us a joke just in case we needed one. But our computers were all down when we arrived this morning.

So not only did we not have internet access, we also had no access to newspapers or information of any kind, since the papers were not delivered to us, or the stores near us, until much later in the morning. Winging it today! I had made some preparations at home, and then emailed them to myself so I could print them out at the station. Which of course I couldn't do. Until 7:00 this morning, I was going from memory.

Then the weather began. It was a bit treacherous getting TO work, but nothing like the roads after 7. What a mess out there! All buses cancelled. Well...almost all buses. West Quebec School Board is still running exceopt to two schools. No, West Quebec is not running. And their schools are closed while everyone else is open. No, that's wrong. OK - West Quebec recently split into two school boards, West Quebec and Portage de L'Outaouias, and they never told anyone. So West Quebec is running, mostly, but Portage de L"Outaouais is not, and THEIR schools are closed. WHAT?

Now we wait for accidents. Without access to traffic cameras or websites. Or information. At least our phones are working.

  1. Oddly enough, I got to work early this morning. (from Ogilvie/Montreal Rd to Carling) Traffic was slow on the Queensway, but it was steady. No stop'n'go. Now that I'm here, nobody else on my team appears to be here.

  5. Guy goes to the doctor 'cause his penis is all orange, doc says, he doesn't know why, asks him what he does for a living, says he used to work at Hersheys in Smith Falls but got laid off, doc asks what he does now, guy says he drinks beer, eats cheezies and watches pornos all day.
