Good morning crew,

Last year I took an entire day off of work to clean and decorate the house before my Halloween party. This year I used up all of my vacation days on Europe, so I only have a few hours tonight to wash dishes and hide dirty laundry.

The people who come to this kind of party don't care about plastic skeletons and probably carcinogenic glow-in-the-dark cobwebs anyway. The only thing that will scare them is if the booze runs out.

Laugh it up,

Joe

*-------------- Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes --------------*

A businessman had a tiring day on the road. He checked into a hotel and, because he was concerned that the dining room might close soon, left his luggage at the front desk and went immediately to eat.

After a leisurely dinner, he reclaimed his luggage and realized that he had forgotten his room number. He went back to the desk and told the clerk on duty, "My name is Henry Davis, can you please tell me what room I am in?"

"Certainly," said the clerk. "You're in the lobby."
