    well, this is my facebook status at the moment:

    "had a spiritual experience this morning, and I feel I need a community in which I can fulfill my newfound spirituality. I'm thinking Westboro Baptist Church could be the answer for me."

    One of the managers here emailed the whole department telling us he had been drafted to Afganistan for the next six months. Thankfully the snr director has a sense of humour and did heel him in the eye.

    Last year I had one of my good clients (who is a friend as well) tell me he was going to take his business elsewhere. He made it sound believeable and I about choked. I hope I don't get anything like that today!

    Supervisor and I had a fake fight in front of a few others I work with which ended in me being sent home.....where as I was already leaving early for a dentist appointment. My supervisor's idea, we'll tell everyone else on Monday. Two girls I work with have already texted me asking if I was alright and I've just being replying with "don't want to talk about it now" icon_razz.gif

    Ahh April Fools Day...

    On campus the graduating engineering class usually plays a prank. A couple of years ago they cut an old car in half and rebuilt it around a streetlight. They also painted the observatory to look like a jack o lantern once.

    As for myself, I took screenshots of the desktop of all the computers in my department's undergrad computer lab, set that to be the desktop background, then hid the icons and start menu. That way it looks like all the computers are frozen as they cannot click on anything. Chaos should hopefully ensue for a while.

    I don't do to many now (I do it the rest of the year) but some things I did in middle school:
    cling wrap under the seat is always an unexpected surprise!
    A bullion cube or a small hard candy (like jolly rancher) in the shower head.
    I wore fake glasses for 3 days, everyone loved them.. but I came in w/o them everyone asked if I got contacts.


    I think this year I'm going to tell my mom I have a girl friend.icon_lol.gif

    the best prank i've ever heard of was one that the engineering students at the uni back home pulled. over night, they disassembled, moved and then reassembled one of their prof's car in the middle of the engineering faculty cafeteria

    My partner played a "harmless" prank on me today and I hit my head on the marble shower wall and then the steel handle and then he fell on me trying to catch me causing my head to hit a third time against the floor.

    Thus, we had to go to the hospital at 0700 in the morning because I fainted and started vomiting, and was disoriented. Now I have a large bump in the back of my head, a concussion, and orders of bed rest for the day. Additionally, I kicked him in the groin when I was falling.

    So really the joke's on him.

    Think of it like a mini-vacation.

    You should get a picture of it to make it extra sweet and savoury.

    From the distant past:

    As the high-school print-shop nerd who laid-out the student paper (and wrote most of it, because nobody turned in any copy) I once slipped in a coupon for "A Free Handshake At The Milkout."

    The manager of "The Handout" (a local milkshake & burger drive-through) was not amused, tho.

    Boss: I wanted to let you know today will be my last day here.
    Me: What?!? Why? (I am really thinking: YES!!! TODAY IS A GOOD DAY!! PROMOTION TIME!!)
    Boss: I will be gone in two weeks.
    Me: Oh no. What's going on? I'll head over to your office.

    *Runs to boss' office*

    Me: You're leaving?!?!?
    Boss: Yeah....
    Me: Oh no, Where are you going?(As if I care)
    Boss: April Fools!!!!
    Me: Ugh, damn.
    Boss: What?
    Me: Ummmmmmm.... *pause* damn, I fell for it!
    Boss: Hmmmmm
    Me: Glad you're staying...
    Boss: ....
    Me: That was a good one. I am going back to work now.

    Two of my friends proposed to each other. We are all trying to figure out if it was a prank or not. They refuse to take calls and their parents don't known anything. It wasn't very romantic and all that.

    Good prank we pulled off in highschool:

    Let two chickens loose out in the hallway. One labelled "1" and the second "3."
    Once the two were caught, it was assumed that there was a chicken labelled "2" hiding somewhere. They looked for days lol
