Picture if you will...(updated)

A man, frustrated by technology. A man whose dominion is no longer held over simple, two-dimensional space. In a place we call 'The Cheesehead Zone'.

I'm having some technical difficulties that go beyond loss of power over my vertical and horizontal controls. (And yes, I know that's from the Outer Limits. I'm mixing creepy early sci-fi television shows. Get over it.)
This should be the background you see when you visit us here at CDS Industries. Instead, you get brown. And not even an appetizing shade of brown. (update: at least the gray isn't nauseating...)

We are hoping matters are rectified shortly. Until such time as this issue is resolved, please picture the above fromage du jour in your mind as you read our posts.

Thank you for your continued support and optimism.

I miss the cheese.

BUT, I do know the source of the quote on your tagline up above...

Samsmama said...

Yikes! What on earth is going on? And, really, what a horrid shade of brown. And I'm with MJenks, any points for knowing the tagline? I'm a kid, that's my job!

HEY! Who moved my cheese?

Elliott said...

Mjenks, Smama, great movie. And Samsmama, you DO get extra points, the "I'm a kid, that's my job" just triggered something for me. I was watching Criminal Minds last night, and one of the characters looked SOOOO familiar but I couldn't place her. She was Buck's girlfriend!

Sarah, have I ever relayed the story of how that book changed my life? I had a boss who gave me that book, and I was so offended by how it was presented to me, I only took one thing from it: "What would you do if you weren't afraid?" My answer was, "I'd quit".

And so I did.

I dunno, I think the brown adds a certain je ne sais quois to the CDS. It's like a chocolate log lying in a bed of... more chocolate.

Log.

I miss the cheese, yo. Get on that.

Log.

Samsmama said...

Yes! I did the exact thing when I saw that episode. She was David Carradine's girlfriend. She was possibly on more than one episode, but I know at the end of one they jumped in front of a train. That really annoyed me. Looked so fake and reminded me of that damn movie "Hostel". So, to date, I've seen a total of two movies in my life.

Elliott said...

Um...Keith Carradine, not David. Close, though. You can tell them apart because Keith's not dead.

What, too soon?

And I think the idea was that they jumped across the tracks before the train blocked any followers, but yes, bad effect. And I kept thinking Gideon could have blown a hole in his kneecap, it would have worked.

Samsmama said...

Why the fock I put David is beyond me. Because of that asshole Keith I had the pleasure of explaining erotic asphyxiation to my husband's 68 year old aunt. Then right after that I put a pic on FB of Sam when he'd tied himself to his bed and some jerk made a Carradine comment. Too soon and too wrong. Don't talk about my baby like that. Anyhoo, carry on with your day.

My wv is "unkai". Sort of like what Mr.Mackey says.

MJenks said...

it's not brown now. It's gray.

Elliott said...

At least I found a visually neutral color, not 'greasy infection brown'. It'll do until I can figure out where the cheese went. (Where'd it go?)

Samsmama said...

It's like a mood ring. Mood blog, if you will. I can dig it.

Happy Hour...Somewhere said...

See, that's what happens when you flog the HTML. Either that or you cut the cheese on purpose.

Mala said...

I'm not feeling this grey either. Bev and I worked at a TV station that had "institutional grey" colored walls. Ugh.

MtnMama said...

Fine. I finally get off my ass and determined to catch up on my reading, and What? I miss the redecorating? I love redecorating! But I usually criticize whatever took the longest and was worked on the hardest, and then my comments are not appreciated, so...
love the grey. So soothing.

Elliott said...

Smama, my only mood is bleah. So sad my format blew up.

HH, had I been messing with the HTML, I'd understand. Sadly, it was like this when I got here.

Mala, I'll see what I can come up with, maybe something slightly more taupe.

MtnMama, had this been intentional redecorating, that'd be one thing. This is more like the redecorating that happens when someone drives a bus through the side of your house.

Mmm... Cheese and the Twilight Zone. Trippy. Trippy cheese. Is that possible?

Nej said...

I'll be singing this song all day now. :-)

Elliott said...

I love the song, enjoy it with my compliments.

Nej said...

What's really funny, is as I walk down the hall at work...singing "where's the cheese go?"...I sound like some mental patient. Or possibly Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man. Where'd the cheese go is so random...it's awesome!

Be nice and share!
