mountain man said...

Hi FB. Me feel dull too. Maybe it's fun to eat a lot and always sit. Maybe it's us that misses out on life.

fairy butler said...

i am harboring some unfocused aggression today. face chomping is imminent. ready for box punching, etc.

dubz said...

southern cooking = fattening. i dropped 8 pounds as soon as i crossed the mason dixon line.

AlsoArthur said...

no wonder the south lost the civvy war. Probly too fat back then as well. what with them there darkies doing all the heavy lifting.

AlsoArthur said...

I have a song picked out for you FB. A classic karaoke song, and timely in it's message.

fairy butler said...

fairy butler said...

pd said...

Hi FB. I am so happy for you that not only do you get to leave beige, but that you get to show off your vocal skills as your very own parting gift.

pd said...

Just try not to do Peaches and Herb.

fairy butler said...

i am saving my peaches and herb for you my dear pd.

i need to figure out my songs for tonight. very important.

pd said...

fairy butler said...

krixfort said...

Jersey Boy said...

Bon Jovi?

dubz said...

fb, what did you sing???

MM said...

Yeah FB give us the lowdown.

Anonymous said...

I'm fat.

fairy butler said...

it was odd stuff. we got there so early (just my favorite people here actually came) - like 5:30ish and the sign said karaoke starts at 8pm. NO!!! So we were crestfallen until Daiel asked the bartender if we could start it early and she agreed to that as long as we had 2 drinks each and I guess there were enough of us to make it worth it?

Anyway... the beigers here are all extremely talented at the karaoke. I think they need to come to the next karaoke jamz. Daiel is a good heckler, an element of the sport I had not considered. There was a lot of man falsetto style singing. pretty hilarious.

fairy butler said...

and I was able to gobble down the drinks and be fine today. the fb is back in action. good or bad? you decide.

you better be wastin time FB said...

perfect linky connection...

fairy butler said...

arthur, i haven't done one work related task yet & I've been here one hour. we were just planning our lunch outing. sushi.

MM said...

I need to practice for the karaoke sport. Maybe I should get into the heckling too, the singing part gives me hives, I am fraidy cat. When is our next outing? For the FB bday?

MM said...

congrats on your last day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

krixfort said...

Yes congrats FB!!!!

so long chumper beigers.

fairy butler said...

for some reason i find the karaoke dazzlingly fun - i am game anytime. we need to get a room at that muse place and bring costumes and such. i cannot get enough.

i must say my performances last night were nothing special. the acid bath gut was precluding things. i dunno. i needed the blog spirit in human form. maybe.

fairy butler said...

meaning youse guys.

fairy butler said...

it's weird. i don't really feel that much relief that today is the last day. it's like just another thing that has to get done. I'll feel differently in a few weeks probably. when i am in the thick of the next steps - holding up my head and reaching for shiny objects.

fairy butler said...

not crack pipe.

fairy butler said...

mm, you missed krixie's rendition of miss you. it was awesome. she will have to redo sometime for you.

toodster said...

Congrats on the beigeless life Big D.

We are back to updating our blog!

fairy butler said...

toods, can we see you in the real this weekend?

hams said...

yay FB! It will sink in next week when you don't have to open hte office door and see the biege prison walls. Hurray!

fairy butler said...

oy hams, you know, i feel bad that I am not more relieved, you know? I might turn into a hyper psychoworker in the next few months. i'm worried.

hams said...

Is it okay for you to step back and work in the studio for a little bit? Just take a break before the worker bee attacks?

hams said...

My wrist hurts from too much Noah's Ark. I made it to SUPER BEASTMASTER already today. Level 25.

fairy butler said...

impressive hams! right on. (not about the wrist hurt, though)

sadly, I will feel better if I just start worker beeing straight away. I know, mental case, but I will just worry otherwise. I'm kind of turned off by the whole art thing at the moment. I'll still go and make stuff I am sure but ?? we shall see....

MM said...

IS that why your wrist hurts, Ham? Or is there another reason. One you are ashamed to share. One that takes place below your desktop. Just a harmless question. Sorry.

toodster said...

FB we do need a play date stat, but we are fleeing the West Indian Parade and headed to Quogue to cower in the rain and wish the pool was warmer. nah, it should be fun, but we won't be back til mon. what does next week look like?

My hood this weekend is going to be a bit much for me this year. Someone in the park across the street (technically about 3 blocks away) was doing a "sound test" from about 8-10 pm that was loud enough to set off car alarms infront of my building and make my windows hum w/ bass. I also counted a caravan of 61 police cars lights and sirens going by.

hams said...

I can't stop rubbing against the wood. SHHHHH. It is like wartime and it is my only distraction.

hams said...

FB!! I hope you get a chance to breakdance and stuff. Your chains are loosed in the name of jesus.

hams said...

and other stuff. Chain gang broke out.

Corny said...

Hi FB! Congrats on last day. Will you go out with a bang, literally plant a bomb and blow that place the hell up? Or maybe it's time to tell co-workers what you really think of them?
I'm game for karoake again, though this time I might assume the roll of heckler with MM in the peanut gallery.

fairy butler said...

my coworker has planted a large bottle of rum under my desk. FOR REAL. We are just back from sushi lunch + beer. It might be time for the cuba libre.

krixfort said...

hey FB, don't forget to put the lime in the cocnut.

I'm up for Karaoke at any time. I could break out into song just thinking about it.

AlsoArthur said...

mmmmmmmm. Rum.

Maybe that's what I will start drinking at 5pm today. That should help deaden the awkward social-industry-shmooze-fest of preparty VMA ladeedahs.

Who the hel is even in the running for VMAs you ask? No clue. Perhaps I should check the mtv site to see who is playing. There has to be one bone tossed my waqy. It can't be all Timberlake right? Right?!

AlsoArthur said...

oh, and right...
May your last beige encounter be swollen with platitudes, embued with futureshine and embalmed in the nothingness of space and time.

or something.

dubzy said...

congrats on your last day FFBBBBEEE. excellent.

fairy butler said...

Can i just be done now?! I am packing up the shitz. Actually I am smearing it all over my chair and cubicle walls leaving dirty brown thumb prints over all surfaces.

peeds said...

FB!!!! You are soon beigeless...moving on to lavender I hope. I am so happy for you. Drink up. You must finnish the rum by 5pm.

toodles said...

5 o'clock baby!!!!! Fart in the elevator on the way out and run away!

krixfort said...

Hooray FB!! on to better things, greener pastures, and better karaoke.
