You're at work, and, through a series of e-mails, you end up starting a humor chain that manages to incorporate what you do at work with knitting. And you're not the only one laughing.
It all started off when I explained to my group about my availability tomorrow, that I would be driving to Indianapolis but would be available by cell phone.
Someone started off the e-mail chain with this (keep in mind they all know I knit):
Person A: "If while you are driving we call you on your cell phone, will that distract you from your knitting?"
Me: "Oh, I didn't tell you? I'm knitting the next [document that relates to work which is written in a geek language called UML]."
Person B: "Now, that is something I would like to see. Are there common UML knitting patterns?"
Me: "We use a language called KnitML. Every thing is a freeform diagram."1
Person C: "Hmm... looks like that standard is full of loop holes."
Me: "For KnitML 2.0 (currently in Pre-Candidate Fairly Strong Recommendation status at the W3C), they are planning on tightening up the loop holes by using smaller needles."1
Winners of the 2007 Great Grape Jelly Competition will be posted soon, I promise.
1For those of you who are not tech savvy, I apologize. We all found it funny.
