One of my coworkers got Rickroll’d this morning.  Rickrolling happens quite often around here, but its usually done with the original “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley.  Someone will call another person’s phone while they are away from their desk and leave a message with just Rick Astley singing.  When the person gets back to their desk they notice a voicemail, turn the speaker on and listen to the message.  And then everyone starts cracking up at the sound of… 

“Never gonna give you up,
Never gonna let you down,
Never gonna run around and desert you,
Never gonna make you cry,
Never gonna say goodbye,
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you…”

I’m mean, that song never gets old.  And it’s so uplifting… it always puts you in a good mood.  But, today was a new song.  And it took me back to the 2622 days and endlessly watching “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” on Mary’s computer.  I think we even used to do the dance occasionally. 

And writing about Mary’s computer also reminds me of the extremely annoying theme she used to have on there.  The jungle theme.  I’d be only person in the apartment and out of nowhere I’d hear jungle noises… birds chirping, a monkey beating a drum (?), something quacking… just all sorta of crazy and it would always scare the buh-Jesus out of me.  Somehow she found this so amusing.  Which is probably why she left the theme on there.  Jerk.
