I am in a bloody bad mood, thanks to my appointment with the useless psychiatrist today. Might write about it in a friends-only post, or I might just get on with my life. So here's a George W. Bush joke I received today. Don't know how old it is, but it made me laugh, so...

Washington, DC. April 1, 2003

An alleged terrorist attack has destroyed the personal library of President Bush.

It has been reported that both of his books have been lost in this tragic event.

The president is devastated, as he had not finished coloring the second one.

Also, after reading that an Australian woman had her rent rebate cut because housing officials mistook her teddy bear for a live-in partner, I have decided not to add any of my toys' names to the answerphone message. It would take too long to go through them all, anyway.

Current Mood: pissed off pissed off

I heard the Dubya joke as a Quayle joke originally, but it's still worth a giggle.

And I'm with you regarding adding the critters to our answering machine...they're already about to crowd us out of bed. If I added them to the 'phone, they'd probably start asking for their own line....

I first heard that one as a Reagan joke. Guess I'm showing my age.

I _so_ know what you mean :).

Especially as some of them don't have names or we can't remember what names we have give them!

No Names

I don't actually mention any names on my answerphone message because that is one of the tips for coping with stalkers. One of my lodgers has a couple even though she wont admit it.

Actually, our answerphone doesn't have our names on it at the moment. It just says we're not Colonel Bob Stewart. Yes, the BBC is still plaguing us with misdirected calls!

I emailed him a while ago and have his correct number, and both he and I are moaning at them every time they call us by mistake. Apparently there is no way to propagate the correct information from the central database down to the various departments' sub-databases, which seems unlikely to me, but it's a different researcher who calls each time. And I'm usually not awake enough to care much beyond getting them off the phone.
