You really know you need a life when the highlight of your week is when the copy machine hit 1 million copies. The blessed event happened today at approximately 9:00 a.m., Pacific Standard Time. Debby was running copies of pleading paper and paused at 999,999 so that Steve and I could shoot photos...
....1 more copy......and.....

TA DA!!!!
I mused out loud how super cool it would be if the copier suddenly burst open, shooting confetti and balloons out the top with noise maker sounds. Steve and Debby seemed a little creeped out by that scenario.

*sigh* I need a life.


  1. Yes, poor child.

    It's 9:10 p.m. I'm going to bed.

    Oh, by the way, check your email.


  2. Hahaha!!!
    Jojo, then I don't have a life either, babe, cause things like this amuse me no end!!!

    Thanks for a good laugh!

    Um.....I got excited the other day when my clock read 22,222 and my car will be 9 years old in September!! It's the one and only car I've had that I bought 'new';0)

  4. I take a childish pleasure in that sort of thing too. No need to be embarrassed.

    Just a pity the copying machine didn't blast out the choral bit of Beethoven's 9th or do a somersault or somesuch...


  5. Yep, need a life, you and me both! Hahaha :-))

  6. Hahahaha! I wish our copier showed the numbers; it keeps that info under multiple layers of menu screens that only the Print Shop people can access. Like it's such a big secret. Geez.

  7. Is it even sadder that I watch out for milestone readings on my car's clock, then get annoyed when I miss them?

  8. Jo, I found out how to insert a link for the meme. But, if you don't create your own meme -- which you have to pay for -- you have to join another meme already in progress. Besides not wanting to pay for an upgraded link -- those cost money too, -- I think I inserted the wrong code into the right meme. I had to delete Pretty In Pink blog. So take that blog of your blogroll. I am in the process of composing another blog in its stead. Urrrgh! Geez!!

  9. Yep, sounds like me.
    Oh, I will be 50 years old on 12-12-2012
