work lol-o’-the-week

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

Generally, my workplace does not have a uniform. But each year the boss tends to get us shirts (no, I’m not sure why — but at least he doesn’t decide to get them and then make us pay for them, which is what my last boss did). And then, of course, we have “workplace shirt […]

a synergy of viewing

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

It turns out bluemeridian and I both watched ‘Rise of the Guardians’ yesterday, and apparently we’ve also both spent time since them reading fanfic. Here’s one grabbed from bluemeridian’s pinboard: Bunnymund visits grown-up Sofie, by anonymous (kink!meme fill, but totally gen) “This one’s new.” Bunny settles on the bench next to her and drops a […]

more tv & weather notes

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

What can I say, my weekends are jam-packed with adventure. [Fun fact: My horoscope today said I would be “embarking on an adventure into unknown territory” today; I’m trying to convince the universe that watching three episodes of ‘The Unusuals’ totally counts.] But first, weather! Just for the sake of record-keeping, I’m interested to note […]

that tech support story everyone knows

Friday, April 20th, 2012

So yeah, I know this is one of those kinds of stories that get told All The Time, but that doesn’t really stop it from being hilarious when it’s happening to you. At my workplace, we have neighbors. In the way of many neighbors, we get along best when the door between us is shut. […]

favorite typo ever

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Sometimes I just can’t resist sharing typos, whether they be mine or other peoples’. Here’s the latest: “…his control is tedious at best” Presumably, the intention was to go with tenuous, but I love that in fact, tedious works pretty well. It’s like the ultimate Freudian slip.

I think the world needs to know about this.

Usually, I am the last to know everything. But just in case someone else hasn’t yet seen the personalized “ob is triple sorry” video song, I highly recommend it. Because really, who doesn’t want an icon like this?

seminar time!

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

These things are always great for at least one post — today was learning tiemz; there was an offsite seminar on how to be a leader (hint: lead) and team builder (hint: it’s the empty cigarette lighter and the steel wool that are the most important in that plane survival exercise — go team go!). […]

long!lecture is loooooooooooooooooong

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Yeah, so the ‘one hour talk’ I was supposed to go to for work tonight ran a little over. Like, by an hour and a half. But! There was some unexpected hilarity sprinkled in amongst the slides. Picture this: it’s a talk about nutrition, and food, and all that, and he’s talking about meat protein. […]

I tried to resist, but now I’m giving in.

Sunday, January 9th, 2011

Okay, so I just got an email, and it’s an invitation! It’s inviting me to a seminar! And in a bout of surprising yet refreshing honesty, it’s letting me know right up front that the event will be, perhaps, somewhat dull! No, really, the email subject line is: This Year’s Bl@nd Seminar (I’ve swapped the […]
