ads: are y’all even still together?

Thanks to TiVo*, I don’t see that many ads anymore, but this one always cracks me up: “It’s the 34th time this year…” The other ads in the series are cute and ride that fine line of awkwardness that’s made...

at work: overheard

Conversation between two co-workers yesterday mid-morning*: …I’ll tell you how to get in and we’ll play tomorrow. But when we do, you have to be the girl. I’m just kidding, we’ll make _______ the girl. I was immediately torn between...

earth day: the green monster

Is everyone learning a lot about how to be more green this week and especially today? Good. Will anyone other than the more socially conscious remember anything next week? Probably not. My BGA is putting on their dog & pony...

office: it has its moments

The actual work still sucks most of the time, but our building is actually quite pretty at times. A colleague was walking past the atrium windows, saw a chair, the sun and an opportunity. It was fairly cold in the...

work: this is getting to be a habit

I gotta say, it’s been a pretty good few months for this new building. 43rd President, 44th First Lady and today the 44th President and Vice-President. From what I understand, historically, these visits are a pretty big deal since the...

The Xerox Room – Office Life

In my 25 Things entry, I mentioned how the movie Nine to Five had a great influence on my views of office culture and this past week or so, I’ve noticed a recent parallel. We’re well past the days of...

TGIF: the ultimate battle?

Every time I see this t-shirt advertised on the Overcompensating comic feed, it makes me laugh. And I’m betting it would be a much better fight than robots vs. werewolves. Oddly enough with my recent t-shirt addictions, this one just...

BSOD: the ghost of Windows past… today!

When you’ve been sitting at your desk for 20 minutes and a co-worker walks past and says, “Hey take your coat off and stay a while.” — It’s not going to be a good day. This morning at home, after...

office: Pet Peeve #732

If I may take a moment to rant… Here’s a clipped image of an e-mail sent out this morning regarding a going away luncheon for an employee that’s leaving. From the blurry mass next to To: and the opening “Everyone,”...

holiday: La Bouche Thursday

As Kyle and I were making our way through glasses of sangria and litres of his unpronounceable heifer-something beer, we declared that night a Bon Jovi Friday, even though it wasn’t really one. However we knew that the next Wednesday...

office: best advice ever

I don’t know about you, but I am really looking forward to the day–hopefully day and a ½–off. I’m not bothering with all the nonsense of travel, but staying in town as in previous years. Like a moron, I also...

evil twin: human iron babe

I love anagrams. And I do feel a bit like my evil twin today. I decided to accentuate the silvery strands growing in around my chin and nowhere on my cheeks by shaving a vandyck. Since I generally go equally...

…comes great responsibility

I get an e-mail yesterday, sent to the original recipients at 1:45p Thursday afternoon, eventually forwarded to me at 3:05p: There will be a meeting this Friday to discuss [redacted]. The meeting will start at 9:00 am and could last...

Yes We Ca-zzzz…

I’m working on about 3 or so hours sleep, the celebrations didn’t die down for quite a while on the street outside. Not that I’m complaining, but I am having a hard time deciding whether today in the office will...

and it isn’t even 9 yet?!

Finally! Brisk weather! Praise Jeebus. This also meant that I was sort of freezing my tush off while moving around the house this morning before heading out, but I’ll take this over the heat we’ve had the past few days....
