Stolen orb [Dec. 9th, 2005|12:02 pm]

So, today I got everyone to laugh at the company meeting when I said that I am missing an orb, oh well cheap laughs. Seriously however, somehow the orb went missing over night, the only thing left was the electronics.

So we patched it up quickly and it now looks like this..



Not as nice, but still works... It seems that LJ is only happy during the night time and mornings...

Now, who would steal an orb?!?

maybe someone is holding it for ransom.

Maybe it was the CRAZY GUY! He broke in and stole your orb!

If he did, he got a yahoo branded one!

I've just bought 5 more, so there will be more orb hacking next week!

Re: broken ?

Yes, and that is the most likely case, but it doesn't sound as dramatic does it?

Re: broken ?

Actually it's not dramatic -- rather funny. I'm quite sure this is a French expression only (correct me if I'm wrong). But, here, we are used to say :
"Who steals an orb... (steals a beef)". (Qui vole un oeuf... vole un boeuf -- in the text). The second part oftenly silented/suggested, because everyone knows it.
