best of: overheard at work

My work!neighbor and my new!boss had the *greatest* conversation last night, and I wish I could render it in all its glory, but here’s the basic plot: Neighbor: “I don’t believe in ghosts.” Boss: “Oh, I do.” ::tells long story about why, with digressions into why she doesn’t want her kids to use ouija boards […]

work update

I can neither confirm nor deny the presence of a ghost in my workplace. (Back when I did my preview day, I was told the building was haunted. Or that some people believe it is haunted, at least.) However, the kitchen is always inexplicably colder than all of the rooms and hallway around it, and […]

my ears don’t match

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

It’s taken me a while to figure this out, because I’m slow that way. But it’s the only answer I can come up with that explains the fact that no pair of earbuds I’ve tried actually fits well in both ears. Usually I get one ear that feels great, and the other one I’m all […]
