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.


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

scream, blah

Please discontinue any unnecessary breathing

From the South Coast AQMD:

The forecast for tomorrow predicts a health advisory episode with a maximum AQI reading of 151 for the pollutant particulate matter. During a health advisory episode, the air quality is unhealthful [and coffee is hot]. Everyone, including healthy adults and children [and healthy adults who act like children], should avoid prolonged, vigorous outdoor activities. Susceptible persons, especially those with lung or heart disease, should avoid outdoor activities [and breathing in general].
