LAB: Why do so many movies feature a Kraken?
Jeff: *sighs* Here we go.
LAB: I mean, what's a Kraken anyway?
Jeff: A mythical giant sea creature, which in reality is probably just a giant squid.
LAB: So when they say "Release the Kraken", they're implying that they have one somehow contained.
Jeff: Oh, God. Where's this heading?
LAB: I'm just wondering what kind of containment system one would use to house a Kraken?
Jeff: Since they're not real, I assume it's an imaginary containment system. Which in your world is probably made of Twizzlers.
LAB: You just said that a giant squid is a real-life Kraken equivalent.
Jeff: Which I now regret saying.
LAB: I'd hate to think they'd just keep them in a Kraken cage. That would suck. No wonder the Kraken is so pissed off.

Somebody needs a hug!
LAB: Wouldn't it be awesome if there was some kind of kick-ass Kraken Habitrail? That way the Kraken could be comfortably contained with plenty of room to exercise. Then it would be less angry. If I had a Kraken it would be free-range. Definitely.
Jeff: I'll make a note that all future Kraken acquisitions will be maintained humanely. Glad we got that settled.
In other news, Jeff is interviewing for a different position within his company that would put him on a "regular" Mon - Fri daytime work schedule. Should he be offered said position, he and I will occupy the same space at the same time much more frequently than we currently do. Obviously, I couldn't be happier about this. Jeff, on the other hand, has some reservations (I can't imagine why). I'm practically giddy about all the videos I can show him of Great Danes drinking from water fountains (and sledding! I can never get enough videos of dogs sledding!). And we can go to the firing range any night we want - I've got my pink gun case at the ready (although I still haven't had time to get it monogrammed). And we can spend the whoooooole weekend together. Every. Single. Weekend. If you're the praying type, you might want to send up a little prayer for my man. He's going to need it.
