Vaccines Do Cause Autism!

Thursday, October 2, 2008
From an IM with my Hot Sister this morning:

Cindi: I got my flu shot this morning. I'm a little light headed now, I'm probably developing autism now.

Janiece: Call Jenny McCarthy - STAT!

Cindi: I can't. I forgot how do dial.

Cindi: TO dial.

Janiece: See? More symptoms!

Cindi: I know! I'm probably screwed now.

Janiece: Maybe you'll become an idiot savant.

Cindi: As long as it gets me out of work...

How bad does a job have to be before you wish to be an idiot savant in order to skip work?

Well, my boss IS still mourning the loss of Mike Huckabee as a Presidential candidate.

And my co-worker is on a passive-agressive roll with regard to a dead mouse she wants someone else to deal with.

And my left eye is swollen nearly shut from allergies.

So yeah. A little sympathy, if you please.

Janiece Murphy said...

The first comment is enough to get my sympathy.

Nathan said...

Forget about the savant part.

I'm running with the idiot thing though.

Cindi in CO said...

Nathan, I would hate to have my first trip to the East coast be for the express purpose of kicking your ass.

And fuck you.

Jim Wright said...

OH yeah, flu shot, guess I'd better go get one.

Used to be my Team corpsman would just show up in front of my desk with a tray of needles. Sigh. Now I have to remember and actually get of my ass and go to the doctor. Phooey.

:::settles down with a cup of coffee and a grin waiting for Cindi to arrive at JFK:::this should be entertaining, especially the part where Nathan screams like a girl:::

My HMO will start giving shots on November 3rd. I suppose I better go get one - the CDC is recommending them for everyone this year.

And I do think my sister can take Nathan.

Cindi in CO said...

With one hand tied behind my back.

Jeri said...

In Nathan's defense - I, too, thought of responding something along those lines. But not intended as a slur upon the hot AND tough chick Cindi.

More like "Would idiot sans savant be sufficient excuse to miss work? Because then I'm good!"

Who knows, maybe Nathan was meaning something along those lines.

Or maybe not. He does do his own lobster killing and drinks Bloody Marys three meals a day, after all.

Cindi in CO said...

You know, Jeri, if Nathan was referring to himself, I'm gonna feel kind of bad about what I said.

But I'll get over it.

OK Janiece, this is a thread-jack.
(I can't send you emails from work, shifty contractor that I am!)
But this is good!

Janiece Murphy said...

Amy, that's just plain scary.

Ya know, I kinda miss Huckabee. I didn't agree with everything he stood for, but at least he admitted that he stood for them.

And he was funny. At this point, a good sense of humor might get my vote. ;)
