Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

Tomorrow I’ll be installing a new modem/router on our home computer. I feel fairly confident, but one never knows what mischief I could get into in the process. Here is some computer/technology humor in preparation for my endeavor.

On email addresses:

  • I’m employed at a computer security company and have a colleague whose name is M. Alware. His e-mail address is
  • My ex-boss’s name is R. Stone. His e-mail was
  • My name is James Pan. Every other permutation of my name was taken (e.g., jpan, jamesp), so I’m stuck with

On giving out to much information, the TMI syndrome:

I’ve given up social media for the New Year and am trying to make friends outside Facebook while 
applying the same principles. Every day, I walk down the street and tell passersby what I’ve eaten, how I feel, what I did the night before, and what I will do tomorrow. Then I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and me gardening. I also listen to their conversations and tell them I love them. And it works. I already have three people following me—two 
police officers and a psychiatrist.

On getting caught red-handed:

Jimmy Fallon asked his viewers to tweet #IGotBusted and share 
the most embarrassing times they got caught.

“I was on Facebook at work, and my boss walked up. I slammed down what I thought was my laptop screen, but it was actually my desktop 

“I lied and told my dad school 
was canceled. He said, ‘Let’s go see 
a movie.’ We got in the car, and he dropped me off at school.”

“I was Facebooking in church, and the usher passed by and whispered, ‘You better be texting Jesus.’”

      I’ve been guilty of the TMI syndrome more than I’d like to admit, but I try to rein it in.
