Dave!Wah. I'm too tired to blog.

The good news is that the design work is done, and all that's left to do is add the new items to the Artificial Duck Co. Store database. I'll work on that in the morning so I can re-open the shop tomorrow afternoon.

The bad news is that I've got a massive pile of work to finish afterwards before flying out on Wednesday morning.

And I can't find the power adapter for my Nintendo DS.

And I have no clean socks.

And my car's gas tank is on empty.

And I need new shoes.

And I'm out of chocolate pudding.


I hope tomorrow is a better day.

  1. …And I’m out of chocolate pudding…

    That would be the straw that breaks the Camel’s back right there.

  2. Mr. Fabulous says:

    You know what you need? A personal assistant.

  3. kapgar says:

    Prioritize, prioritize, you must now prioritize.

    This, of course, means find the adapter and get pudding. All else can wait.

  4. At least three of those complaints can be solved by *shudder* Walmart.

    Cheer up, mon frair.

  5. I think you and my toddler Thomas would really get along. Aside from the car, you guys have a lot in common. 🙂

  6. NYCWD says:

    Is it wrong that you being out of chocolate pudding disturbs me the most?

  7. Classified Information says:

    Well, thats gotta suck!

  8. Beth says:

    Oh, quit thinking of yourself and worry about those of us who want to shop!! Come on, your job can’t be more important than selling sweet crap we all can’t live without!

    *****kidding;)***** take care of you, I’d do your laundry if I were there.

  9. It’s not raining too is it ?

  10. Karl says:

    A shame you can’t run your car on chocolate pudding. You’d kill two birds with one pudding box!

  11. Hilly Sue says:

    Yeah what Fab said….and I am sending you my resume ;).

    You deserve a day of quiet before you have to ramp up all over again. Would it be wrong of me to tell you that I can’t wait to see you in four days!?!?!?

  12. ChillyWilly says:

    Anxiously waiting for the store to open so we can start the 4-6 weeks ticker to get playing cards and t-shirts.

    Hope your day gets better, which means maybe somehow you will find that last package of pudding you stashed somewhere.

  13. Poppy says:

    Dear Dave, if you were not aware, I have LOTS of chocolate pudding. This is Dawg’s fault. If you’re really that desperate I will gladly send you some. Sincerestly, Poppy

  14. Avitable says:

    My post today echoed yours. 10 hours of sleep later, I feel like a new person!

  15. RW says:

    Did I miss something??

  16. Tug says:

    The store’s opening, the store’s opening!! Can we pay in chocolate pudding? 😉

  17. Iron Fist says:

    Well, you can stop worrying about one of those: Dustin and I were already plotting to buy you new socks as a present.

  18. Winter says:

    Being out of chocolate pudding is blasphemy! Make sure you buy plenty so you can drown your sorrows after emptying your savings account to fill your gas tank.

  19. Turnbaby says:

    Awwww–do what Adam did;-)

  20. nicole says:

    Now if you had a few Chocolate pudding scented condoms around you may be somewhat better!!

  21. Sometimes I wish you lived closer so that I could help you take care of those silly little details so you could go on attending to things that matter.

  22. mew says:

    *wishing lots of chocolate pudding to come into your life

  23. jenny says:

    Well now I feel bad for telling you about all the chocolate pudding I was eating yesterday. I’ll buy you some in Philly!

  24. Tina says:

    I’m not laughing at you, I’m laughing with you.

  25. You can always fly over here to Hong Kong for the affordable new shoes.

    But chocolate pudding? Honey, you gotta learn how to take care of yourself! Stock up! Or at least pay someone to stock up for you!

  26. jake titus says:

    Dave, You have had a busy week. Blogaversary was great! I’m stoked about my hat prize (Thanks). Relax, have a cocktail and sit by the pool for a day. Wait sorry I forgot it’s cold in Seattle. O.K. Have a drink and I’ll sit by the pool for you.

  27. After reading your post I thought, “Dave kinda has the same issues as my ll year old son.” Then I read Karen Sugarpant’s comment. So I’ve come to a conclusion:

    men = car + boy + bigger body

    I’m sort of just kidding.

  28. Dave2 says:

    It’s so true though!

    Especially in my case. I make no apologies for acting like an 11-year old most of the time. 🙂

  29. Dave2 says:

    Kevin… Yes. I very nearly stuck my head in the microwave over that one.

    Mr. Fab… Indeed. But one who works for free and is immune to sexual harassment.

    Kapgar… But my shoe is all flappy!

    Kachina… Nah, I’m a Target Boy. I love Target. If they don’t have it, you really don’t need it!

    Karen… I know. And how sad is it that I’m totally not embarrassed by that?

    Watchdog… No. Honestly, that’s what is disturbing me the most too.

    Classified… I know! Life is truly hell. 🙂

    Beth… Yes, but would you iron my shirts? I am a terrible iron-er. And if you agree to iron my shirts… will you also iron my socks? I think I would enjoy wrinkle-free socks.

    Charlie… No. It’s actually rather nice out. I guess that’s something!

    Karl… As if I would waste the deliciousness of chocolate pudding that way! Sacrilege!

    Hilly-Sue… No. It just makes you human.

    Hilly-Sue… Wow. I guess people are right. My ego is really out of control.

    ChillyWilly… I want those playing cards too! And I think I can finally get them at a semi-affordable price.

    Poppy… PUDDING BY MAIL?? GENIUS! That’s an awesome business opportunity for somebody.

    Avitable… Usually it takes an herbal enema for me to feel that good.

    RW… Not at all. Nothing to see here. Move along…

    Tug… I guess. Though I don’t have a dollars-to-pudding conversion worked out yet. Of course, given the TOTALLY WORTHLESS STATE OF THE US DOLLAR, I’d imagine pudding would be a desirable method of exchange. Hmmm.

    Iron Fist… Sweet! Sock are the gift that keep giving!

    Winter… I love pudding more than I love gasoline. But give the price of gas, I may be needing a priority check…

    Turnbaby… I haven’t had 10 hours of sleep in at least a decade. As an insomniac, I’d be thrilled to just get 6 hours.

    Nicole… Chocolate pudding scented condoms! Genius! Oh, wait a second…

    Bombshell… Somehow I think that The Ninja would not approve of you washing another man’s socks. 🙂

    Mew… Fortunately, it was on sale at the local super-market, so wishes do sometimes come true!

    Jenny… Excellent. If only there were a way to combine Jagermeister and chocolate pudding for the ultimate TQ2008 treat! Wait a minute… what an awesome idea!

    Tina… I get that a lot. 🙂

    CK… Somehow I doubt the TOTALLY WORTHLESS US DOLLAR will get me cheap shoes in Hong Kong! Though I would like to go up The Peak in nice weather, so I really should get back there.

    Jake… Thanks for your uhhhh… help?

  30. how can you possibly be out of chocolate pudding!! what are you thinking man!!!!

  31. John says:

    I have 2 chocolate puddings in the fridge. I’ll require one at 2:48 a.m., but the other one is yours. : )

  32. Mooselet says:

    Once you have chocolate pudding the rest will fall into place. Chocolate pudding is the answer to all life’s questions.

  33. I hate stopping for gas so much I would pay someone in chocolate pudding to do it for me – maybe even homemade.

  34. Belinda says:

    I am going to spend my entire “stimulus” check on Artificial Duck merchandise. And when I do, I expect a toon depicting Bad Monkey addressing GWB with a rude gesture and the caption, “Stimulate THIS!”

  35. kim says:

    You sound like my 5 year old boy. He keeps putting holes in the knees of his jeans… does that happen to you also? I keep track of his chargers for him.

    Hilly Sue and Davey Jo reunited. Let the good times roll.

  36. kilax says:

    Schweet, I can’t wait to see the reopened shop… and I can’t wait until you find your pudding. Dave + Pudding = Happiness.

  37. apricoco says:

    out of chocolate pudding?!? that is a fate worse than death for most, unless you are like me and hate all things chocolate flavored, including pudding.

    you worked so hard this blogiversary. I hope you get to go back normal busy schedule vs. blogiversary crazy busy schedule soon!

  38. Kevin H says:

    Dave, at least you still have your iPhone. When Beth does your laundry – will you get her to do mine, too???

  39. Dustin says:

    Dammit! Vahid gave away our awesome gift idea!! Maybe I can fill the socks with chocolate pudding???

  40. whall says:

    I hear Jester of Jestertunes is mastering the art of buying pudding by the dozens of gallons.
