message from god

Woohoo! Doug hooked up the colour scanner for me today. Much more interesting (i.e. not recycled) blatherpics coming soon...

Because of a cold bug and errands, I didn't come in on Friday. Spent the weekend doing Christmassy things like helping my sister and her family get and decorate their Christmas tree, and have Christmas dinner with my in-laws (Jeff's brother Case and his wife Debbie won't be able to be here next weekend). They gave us a cool fountain thingy for our office, and also a nice sweater for me (I'm wearing it today, if you check the officecam this afternoon). Had fun with nieces Brittany and Olivia; both were sick, and Case got sick yesterday. Hopefully I've escaped the bug since I have one already (fingers crossed).

Doing the Christmas tree thing with Sara and Annie was fun, too. After they chose the tree, we had hot chocolate in the tree farm barn, then drove back to their place for decorating. The lower half of the tree was decorated in record speed; Ruth and I added breakables to the top half, and Kaarel added lights.

Spent this morning at the bank and doing more Christmas shopping, got into the office around noon. A few minutes after I got settled and started working, a mysterious computerized voice suddenly boomed from the other side of the room. It said:

    "DEBBIE OHI...THIS IS GOD SPEAKING. I HAVE SENT YOU A MESSENGER NAMED DOUG. DO AS HE SAYS AND YOU WILL BE REWARDED."

I almost fell off my chair laughing, but was also confused...there was no one else in the office; how was Doug managing this?

Current theory: Doug checked the officecam to see if I was in, did a remote login, uploaded the sound file with the God Message to Amanda's computer, ran it, logged off. What a technonerdboy. :-)

I am going to have to get Doug back, of course.
