Office Decorum

Would it be considered too passive-aggressive to leave pamphlets on how to behave professionally in the workplace around my office?

“This is a note to a filthy jerk…”

I’ve seen a few notes in my office about shared fridge behavior before, but this passive aggressive note absolutely takes the cake. Thieves beware… for your very souls!

Beset on all sides!

Some days, it just isn’t fair. You try to do your best, but temptation creeps in everywhere no matter what you do. But I shall be strong and stand firm. Brave, stalwart, yadda yadda… Yesterday was the first day I...

When it rains…

…it pours. And it actually did rain today, so how appropriate. No real topic for this entry, just a lot of rambling stuff and nonsense, trying to get things out of my head and on paper. Well, the internet, so...

Nobody Owns Your Content But You

Continuing on the subject of paying people for their work, let me also state the obvious point that copying–or to put it a better way, stealing–someone’s work is flat out wrong. This is a lesson that brands, both established and...

People Can Die From Exposure

[The first in a pair–perhaps later a series?–of articles about work, ownership and compensation online. What I have to say is nothing new, but hopefully can add to the growing chorus of voices about it.] Recently Wil Wheaton went off...

Gold Star and a Cookie?

I haven’t written about work in a while, even though that place gives me a ridiculous amount of material because, well, it’s work. And sometimes it’s best left in the office. Plus I’m not too hard to find on the...

work: What… Do I do?

I’m the best there is at what I do. But what I do best doesn’t matter much outside this place. With all apologies to Stevie Wonder and Chris Claremont… Recently, a very good friend who works for a very good...

work: that trainer needs re-training

A while back, I said/decided/whatever that I wasn’t going to write about work. Mostly because… it’s work, but also that I am way too easy to find on the internet. However, if you recognize yourself as one of the people...

queer: “that way”

Had an interesting experience in the cafeteria yesterday morning. I’d already brought in my breakfast, but accompanied a co-worker to get her morning nosh. Nothing out of the ordinary for my office routine. The only thing that usually changes is...

work: the fridge

What exactly is it about being left unsupervised with items we don’t own, but that we know we won’t get an any trouble for leaving them in a completely trashed state? The most obvious example of this is the hotel...

in DC: Run Run Run!

Running for a train, I can understand completely… but running OFF of a train and potentially knocking down other commuters in the process? S’wrong with you?

time: like a clock of the heart

Actually, it’s nowhere near that poetic or new romantic. To be honest, I’m ready to see the past year put in the ground. I’m just shy of a week away from my birthday and one gets into a state of reflection…

on the elevator: blondist

I was on the elevator a few minutes ago to let a new employee in through security. I had my coffee in one hand, iPhone in the other. We have wi-fi in the building and I was being an obsessive...

video: been an angel all year

Since I’m stuck* at the office this morning, I figured it would be nice to share a little holiday spirit with an early present. Unfortunately, I won’t be traveling to visit the family this year and am not really looking...
