R.I.P. 853-1212 / 853-2121  
Effective September 19, 2007, the time announcement service has been discontinued. We apologize for any inconvenience.


I just dialed it to explain to a newbie coworker how to transfer a call and instead of the comforting, nasally voice of the woman saying, "At the tone, Pacific [Standard | Daylight] Time will be..." I got that recording.

Where the frak am I going to transfer annoying sales people to NOW?!?

This is unsettling. She's just always been there for me. Test calls, place to transfer a sales call, 3-way calls with coworker's voice mail, just for shits and giggles. All the fun we had together, now but a memory. All... gone. She didn't even say "Goodbye."

I guess I still have the 777-FILM / 222-FILM guy.

*sigh*

It's just not the same.

I'll miss you, Time Lady Talker Person.


Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away
Now it looks as though they're here to stay
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly, I'm not half the man I used to be
There's a shadow hanging over me
Oh, yesterday, came suddenly

Why she had to go I don't know
She wouldn't say
I said something wrong, now I long for yesterday

Yesterday, love was such an easy game to play
Now I need a place to hide away
Oh, I believe, In yesterday

...a service of the Los Angeles Times and American Express. If you know the name of the movie you'd like to see, press 1!

haven't called that number in a long time. I wonder if it's the same moviefone guy.

The moviefone guy is so fucking LOUD. I know he's just a computer, but I swear he does 3 chubby lines of coke before intercepting your call.

"I said god damn GOD DAMN! Can I tell you about some fucking movies?? They are all FUCKING AWESOME!!"

Wow. That's amazingly saddening. I didn't realize that would ever end.

As for where to transfer your calls ... hmmmm. I can't think of anything really funny at this hour. Lemme get back to you. lol ................
