Um… I think I may have entered the Matrix

Matrix message? In my 15 years here at the newspaper, I’ve grabbed more things off the printer than I can count. Which I realize isn’t that impressive considering the source. But a few minutes ago, not only did what I send to the printer disappear in to the void of space, but what I found waiting for me is possibly the most cryptic message I have ever received not involving a lawyer or psychic. So far, no one in the newsroom has claimed it as a missing page to their story — which makes me wonder: Is “Neo” trying to contact me from somewhere in the Matrix?!? Is the office suddenly going to dissolve into green, numbered code all around me?!? Am I just a human Duracell for The Machines?!?

Or have I just had too much coffee on deadline day?

  1. Hmmm. I love this. I probably would have written a poem about it Cuz that’s what I do. Otherwise what else do you have? Trust and obey. It’s a message from God 🙂

  2. oh it’s mine, sorry, i must have pushed print at the exact same time and you did and it canceled yours out. i was working on my new online dating profile. would you mind hanging onto it until i can claim it? thanks in advance.

  3. My husband will sometimes email creepy messages directly to our printer when I am home and he is not. The machine starts printing… “I can see you…” *Shudder* I always know it is just him, but still..Fracking creeps me out every time.

  4. All I can think of when I read that, is an old Sunday School song: “Trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, than to to trust and obey.” Maybe you weren’t answering His texts? hehe

  5. ‘Trust and obey’? Are you somebody’s slave or are we all slaves. Are you a slave to your job and is your boss a sicko who likes to remind you of this. Is it a message from your dominatrix? Do dominatrixes even use fax machine’s? So many questions and so little answers.

    • I believe it is quite possible my boss is a dominatrix who gets pleasure out of sending sick faxes to freak m e out and remind my I am her slave from 8 to 5. Or it could have just been a higher power.

  6. Sweet, I want in on the Matrix. Would make my humdrum day so much more interesting. Also, really like Lawrence Fishburne so if they don’t choose me, please tell him “what up?” from CV. Please pass on email and # to Carrie-Anne Moss. And, give Keanu a kick in the crotch…don’t like him at all.

    • Hey, CV — Just returned from the Matrix. Lawrence says “Yo,” Carrie-Anne said It’ll be a cold day in hell if she ever…” blah, blah blah, and Keanu said “Aggghhh, DUDE! What the hell?!”

No one is watching, I swear...
