As an average white suburbanite 20-something male, I can count on one finger the times I have been called sexy. She was a stripper, all the other clientle were in the champagne rooms with the other girls, her tuition was due and she needed to some cash. She slid next to me and whispered in my ear, "Hey, sexy, how about you join me?" When I told her I don't talk to strangers she gave me a weird look and walked away. But she did call me sexy.
I tell this tale because I can no longer update The Serious Tip on the job. Apparently The Man's server filters have deemed blogger.com too sexy for workplace viewing. Hence no updating at work, no posting comments on other sites at work, and no response when typing in "www.blogger.com".
I don't understand what the problem is. There is no bestiality, necrophilia, deiophilia, arborphilia, arachnophilia, or any other kind of -philia on the blogger web site. There are no "melted kit kats", "soggy biscuits", or "Boston pancakes". It's just words and program language. If the powers that be want me to work, they should come out and say so. Design a filter page that says "This page is designated 'a complete waste of time'. Get back to work, dickhead." Or perhaps, "This site is considered a part of 'The Underground' and is not to be viewed as such viewing may encourage independent thought." I would be cool with that too.
But no, they categorize it as "sex". And you know I can't bitch about the stupidity of their decision because that would be admitting that all I do is screw around and update The Serious Tip all day because I don't have shit else to do. Which is of course the truth.
Damn The Man.
