A Little Discovery at Work

Filed under: PolenBabble — Twin C @ 1:19 pm

As you may recall from a previous post, I have a lot of plants at work, and I like taking care of them. (One of my coworkers recently got fired, pretty much out of the blue, and I managed to grab a plant of hers that I really like before someone else got to it. It’s a dog eat dog world, baby.)

Here’s a picture of a group of plants I got years ago, when I first started working at this job.

Green. . . thumb?

(Notice cute picture of me and PSB! Awwwwwww, cute! Not as cute as otters. But close.)

I took this picture because I was looking at my plants the other day, when I noticed something. Can you see it?

Circle by Photoshop. My kung fu is. . . well, kinda lame.

LITTLE FLOWERS!!!!! I tried to get a close up picture, but it didn’t come out very well:

Stupid camera phone.

They’re tiny white/pink flower clusters.

I don’t even know what kind of plant it is. . .

In other picture news, I put up a page (upper left hand corner) dedicated to Marilyn with a little photo collage. Enjoy.

OMG SO CUTE PONIES

The key moment here is at 1:18, when it goes from being merely cute into Proof That There Is Essential Good In The World.

No, really.

No amount of cookies, cigarettes, or things wrapped in bacon could save the world today. I was given a postcard for my 21st birthday. I still have it but can’t find it right now. Its a picture of two exit signs on the LIE. One says ” Would push a button to put an end to it all” and the other “Potheads”. Today I just might ride that steel horse to Armageddon ( I was there once in the valley of Armageddon, its farmland with a highway running on one side, but thats another story) or as usual get distracted along the way. By choice ultimately, I find myself to nice to end the world on us all.
Let me just pack a bowl here and climb back up to my mountain. I think I miss my hair today, really thats what it is. Really. I am not really blogging about something completely else.
And let us say:
Hence the Irony.

Now, sure, I’m behind preflop, but I had no idea. And I FLOPPED TOP SET, AGAIN!!!! I’m 86% to win!!!!!!!!!!!! And I LOSE!!!!!!!!!!!

The number of hands over the past week and a half where I am favored to win by 70% or more and then end up losing has been ASTOUNDING.

In the dictionary under “balls”

This is amazing. I hope they get a Pickle Surprise!

In other news, I am way too busy to ever post to the P-blog. Sorry. Staying up for 28 hours straight makes one tired the next day. People are weird, especially when they try to run a party and don’t communicate with each other at all. We have a solution to our upstairs neighbors’ excessive noisemaking. It involves a sheet of mylar, a large plank of wood, and a 5000 lumen video projector.

Did I do something wrong? (Does this kvetch make sense?)

A little work nonsense from this week.

Twin C,

could you please put these in the form of slides and send back to me? You can use the (department) slide template.

Thanks,

Boss

(document attached)

I take the document and change it into slides, placed on the proper template, and send it to her.

Subject: RE: powerpoint presentation on monthly reports

could you move the title up to the Title section at the top of each slide? I think that would give more room for text on the center.

Thanks.

Not a problem. I do this and immediately send it back.

This morning, I get this:

Oh beloved slave of mine (note: embellished slightly),

could you clean these up a bit so they look better? I would like you to change some of the numbers to bullets, adjust the font and make the slides look nicer for a presentation rather than just paste from the word document I sent you. Please work on it today and send back to me as soon as possible. call if you need clarification.

Thanks

Boss

Is it just me, or does it sound like I did it incorrectly? I did exactly what she told me to do each time - she never said “make it look nice”.

But I did, and sent it back, and now she’s happy. For the time being.

Did you dine with, mmmmm, say, perhaps, SATAN?

LUNCH OF THE BEAST!!!

I had lunch with a friend today who is currently temping here (today might be her last day for a bit). This was her receipt.

Photoshop smudging of work name by me, not the Dark Lord.
