Security Level Is Orange (Alternate Title Ziploc Saves the World)

So, I've been doing some traveling lately for my new job. Like my old office, my new office is also in Chicago which requires me to hop on an airplane once in a while to go in for training and the like.

Have you BEEN to the airport lately? I am assuming we have Al Queida laughing all the way to his cave as we have somehow let our TSA talk us and their representatives into believing that a Ziploc bag will somehow be the barrier that will prevent my hotel-sized hand lotion from blowing up an airplane.

Who knew?

ZIPLOC could be the answer to each and every threat upon the United States National Security as we know it. You thought they were only good for preserving your lunch? WRONG...Ziploc is also good for preserving your LIFE.

In other news, I've spent the last few weeks getting ready for my new job. The first week was spent at a Regional Sales conference in Lake Geneva, WI at the old playboy club. What a great place and what a grand time.

The last night there I was able to put to use years of show choir choreography and put together a dance and song that us "newbies" were required to perform in front of the whole region set to the tune of the 'YMCA" and "Rawhide."

I'll be the first to admit, getting five guys on the floor while ten girls rode them like horses and slapped their asses to the tune of rawhide was one of my most proud moments.

This is at a corporate banking event people....CORPORATE REPRESENTATIVES WERE RIDING THEIR PARTNERS LIKE BULLS AND SLAPPING THEM ON THEIR ASSES.

Which made me realize, if I can get people to do that, I can get them to do anything.

Shit, I'm trouble

Haha, I just bitched about Ziplocs not too long ago, it is ridiculous. It takes forever to get through security now and of course I'm always wearing my coat and scarf so I'm a hot melty mess by the time I get on the plane.

Corporate HAZING? Who knew!

I feel that my money is so much safer now. I'm just not sure about things at the airport.

...but on some level we already knew this, didn't we?

I miss you! I just came across the pictures from the White House. I'll send you copies.
Send me your new e-mail address.

ah hah... that sounds like a lot of fun. is that all you did, or there were more but you're not telling?

BlackJack said...

Did you hear about the new TSA security measure. Right before take off they're putting the entire plan in a giant Ziplock bag. That'll show them terra-ists.

Barry said...

yeah - ziplock bags are the answer to it all. Jenni - it is scarey that you can get people to do such things...I agree - you are trouble

BlackJack said...

Plane - PLANE.

I am an idiot.

I was in a show choir back in the day, too. We are kindred. :)

I am proud of you for using your mad skillz. Way to dominate the room! :)

gah, flying is so hard these days. back in the day i never had to explain that my penis pump wasn't a weapon, but noooooo, the terrorists had to go and ruin everything. and it's really hard to get your money back on that sort of thing, so you just have to deal with it.

Ziploc will one day save the earth. I believe it. It can sustain the life of a goldfish, it can sustain the life of the earth...

I'm a stone's throw from Lake Geneva, but I had no idea what shenanigans went on there! Maybe I should check it out sometime!
