Meeting Hell

The company’s holiday hootnanny is this afternoon from 3:30pm to 5:30 pm. There will be cake, cookies, and juice. It is like I am in grade-school again except they aren’t letting us out early for the holiday. It will be a nice time for the owners of the company to feel like they are giving something back to the little guy.

I mentioned this before, but lately I have been getting a shit ton of hits associated with a craptastic jpeg image I posted of Theodore from the Chipmunks a year ago. Most likely the hits are somehow associated with the new movie coming out. Anyway, the image is absolutely horrid in resolution. I have done a vector version for all you rabid fans out there. I will also place this version next to the other when I get home tonight.

I have been in meeting hell all day long. Now I am back at my desk and I have stuff that needs to get done and it is friggin hot. I am not wearing the clothes necessary to take a layer off, so I am sweltering here. Anyway… I have another meeting to get to.

To recap:
Hippos are the 3rd largest animal on land
An adult male hippo can weigh as much as 7000lbs but usually weight 5000lbs
That is 3175 kg at max and 2268kg typically
Or 15,875,730 carats at max or 11,339,810 carats typically
Or 500 stones max or 357 stones typically
Or 3.5 tons max and 2.5 tons typical
Hippos are the closest living land animals to whales and dolphins
They can hold their breath for about 5 minutes
The hippo's yawn is not a sign of sleepiness or boredom but is actually a threat gesture, displaying long, thick, razor-sharp canine teeth, or tusks, with which it is capable of biting a small boat in half
Hippos can open their mouths a whopping 150°
Hippos have killed more than 400 people in Africa
That is more than any other animal in Africa
Hippos have a “T” shaped pupil which allows them to see both above and below the water at the same time
Hippos always charge in a straight line
They are too large to maneuver at high speeds
