Work has truly been amazingly pleasant lately. If it were like this all the time, I might actually like my job. Alas, I know that this lovely schedule is an anomaly, but I'm going to enjoy it while I can.
This morning, a very nice secretary who used to sit on my floor called me and asked if I was busy. I said I wasn't, so she said she was coming to pay me a little visit. When she arrived, she handed me a perfectly wrapped box with a bow on it. She said, "You turned 30 earlier this year, right?" Yeah! Who doesn't love a surprise birthday present six months after the fact? Hee!
Check it -- a 30-year anniversary Hello Kitty watch! How incredibly thoughtful!
It's Thursday, and, as many of you know, that means crepes! Today, BPLJ and I had lunch with our former secretaries from our old firm. BPLJ and my former secretary dined on Charlie Kabob, while BPLJ's former secretary and I headed to the crepe stand. She had a Long Vegetarian Life, while I had the Palermo.
yummy-nummy moonpillows I raved about last week. Mmmmm...mochi truffles. They were a hit! I have yet to meet anybody who doesn't love these. I simply can't resist. These really are a great new Thursday tradition for me.
It's no surprise that office life is boring. Pointless meetings and conference calls are the worst. You're held captive for an hour or so with no possibility of escape. I sat next to BPLJ during a meeting today. King George was on my other side. Nevertheless, we've grown pretty brazen and don't refrain from doodling or passing notes even though "Dad" is right there. Very junior high, I know, but it makes such meetings far more entertaining.
One of BPLJ's favorite sayings is "What a donkey!" This phrase is appropriate for bad situations and annoying people. Do you remember Fuckity Fucker Fuckface Fuckhead ("FFFF")? Well, in typical Fuckity Fucker Fuckface Fuckhead-fashion, he is shirking work yet again. During the conference call, FFFF claimed not to know that a letter was due today and then tried to blame his failure to draft said letter on my not having completed my motion. I then triumphantly proclaimed, "Um, actually, FFFF, I sent a draft of that motion to King George and Jay-Z yesterday."
As FFFF bumbled some more, I drew this quickly and pushed it toward BPLJ, who made his own annotations, which I circled in red. If it's not abundantly clear, S_____ "Burro" S__________ is Fuckity Fucker Fuckface Fuckhead.
