Making Emails Fun

Was flipping over an old issue of 8 Days just now after I got back home from guart duty. #804. Read the last page for a usual dosage of laughs, and I just couldn't believe I missed this one. Had a good giggle in the toilet. (Hysterical laughter would have seen my mum call the mental hospital for advice.) Credits to Colin Goh for such brilliant lines.

"8 Alternative 'Out-of-the-office' Auto E-mail Replies" by Colin Goh

1.I am currently on leave, so your e-mail has automatically been deleted.
2.I am currently out of the office, undergoing surgery to have my brain removed so that I may be promoted to management.
3.You are receiving this automatic reply because I am currently out of the office. If I were in the office, you probably wouldn't have received any reply at all.
4.As I am away on reservist till April 30, I will be unable to delete any useless e-mails until I return to the office. Please be patient and your mail will be deleted in the order it was received.
5.Hi. I'm thinking about what you've just e-mailed me. Please wait by your computer for my response.
6.The e-mail server was unable to verify your server connection and could not deliver this message. Please reboot your computer and try sending again. (When you come back, check your inbox to see how many blur toads followed these instructions.)
7.I will be out of the office until the end of the month for medical reasons. When I return, please refer to me as 'Roberta' instead of 'Robert'.
8.I'm not really out of the office. I'm just ignoring you.

I thought four and seven were the most hilarious. So here you have it, useful sentences for your working life in the office. Well, it need not be the office. Anywhere else is ok too. =)

Heading out into town later to return my overdue book from the National Library. I've been seeing this name recently. Lee Kong Chian. He's on National Library and SMU. I wonder who he is. Not that Singapore history interests me by much, but I have a taste for curiousity. I heard it's in honour or memory of him. Hmmm.

The NYJC Choir did a spledid performance at Synergy, so here's in honour of them.

And there was breakdancing too. Not as splendid, but then again, here's another link to a super breakdancing video. This is the best I've seen so far.

And to all john mayer fans, here are two videos worth the watch. His new songs.

That's about it. Time to head down to town. Bye bye.
