The Seven Memes of Sinbad

I know, that's not the name, and rather misleading at that, but hey, I'm stooping to a meme instead of giving you guys a 'real' post.

If there is such a thing as a 'real' post from La Casa du Irrelephant, I guess I should add, so anyway today was les Miserables the occurance and not the book because the network was as frail as a 107 year old Parkinson's patient, so things were, at times, strained. And at times utterly fun, but that was only because Vulgar Wizard and I were tossing paperclips and binder clips at each other across the office.

Endangering coworkers.

Refusing to work.

And saying "firnk" a lot.

So anyway, The Meme of Sevens.
