So last night I'm in the Chinese takeaway waiting for my chicken fried rice, and maeyan is reading me random snippets from SOURCE! The Sam's Club Restaurant Supply Magazine!
I really need to surreptitiously drop off some better mags -- the choice tends to be that, or Newsweek.
Anyway. The article: "The Importance Of Teamwork," by Rick Warren. (Sorry, T.E.A.M.W.O.R.K. Yes, he covers each letter under a separate bullet point.) He of such uplifting books as The Purpose-Driven Life; also, pastor of the Saddleback Church.
It's so jargon-laden and full of biblical quotations (in the linked version, it's an address to pastors, and makes a wee bit more sense, but in the Sam's Club newsletter?) that it's hurting me to breathe/continue scratching off my losing lottery ticket, but I utterly lose my shit when she gets to this bit:
"Make the work fun! At Saddleback, we call it "Plurk" = working and enjoying each other at the same time."
I was torn between replying "Huh; we tend to call that "Porn." ... and "I wanna go to his church."
I went for the porn, because a) the other one isn't true, and b) always go for the porn.
No, I am not fucking with you. "Plurk!"
