56 HOURS

Filed under: PolenBabble, Kvetch! Kvetch! Kvetch! — Twin C @ 8:18 am

although really we start tonight.  We’ve got activities all weekend long.

I’ve placed adds to our rental company order about 50 times in the last 48 hours.

I had an epic battle with a photcopier yesterday, and I lost.  It was quite unfortunate.

 I did get to say “fuck” in my office. 50 times.  All of them on the phone with Twin D.

 Not sure if I’m going to get to blog much more until after the wedding and honeymoon, but I’ll try to hop on when I can.

Tasty dessert from the employee cafeteria - a huge Rice Krispy treat, with Reese’s Pieces in it!

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.

Can I go home now?

PSB and I got our wedding license today.  You have to fill out your occupation on the form.  I wanted to put “man of leisure” but decided against it. . .

I am truly embarrassed that I don’t do better in these.

This play makes me want to vomit, then try to take something to make me stop vomiting, then vomit that up too. You would think that staying out in front of these guys would be easy, but they require you to hit the flop, and when you’re running cold, there’s nothing you can do.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TWIN B!!!!

It was bad enough that I didn’t call him on his birthday. . .

September 13, 2007

Every once in a while, work is fun.

Filed under: HA!, PolenBabble — Twin C @ 6:32 pm

Today they gave me a little wedding present, a $100 AmEx gift card. Very kind of them.

Also, I was forced to join a committee on “Colleague Engagement”, i.e. getting people excited about their jobs/workplace so they don’t leave for a better job. (Yes, I realize the fact that I am on this committee is irony-laden. What they don’t know won’t hurt them.) Before the meeting started, one of the committee members told two great stories - one of which was when he was on rotation as a doctor, they used to have “liver rounds”, as in, go out with coworkers after work and get loaded. He switched to another location where it was announced that there would be “liver rounds” at 10 a.m. He was a little surprised that the other doctors wanted to get started so early, but he was game, and showed up. Alas, it was an actual program, studying the liver, with slides and whatnot.

His other story probably isn’t as amusing told now, but I’m going to try anyway. It was about a new doctor that really wanted to get into a department at his facility. In order to do so, he tried to bribe the department head and members with a box of really good cannoli. He shows up for some function with the cannoli, and the department head goes to town on the box, eating one after the other. About halfway through, he looks up and says, “Who brought these?” Someone says, “Oh, that guy”. He says, “What? He’s not in our department. He has to leave.” The other person says, “But he brought the cannoli!” And the department head says, “It doesn’t matter, he has to leave.” The guy grabs the remaining cannoli and takes off. Months later there is some kind of skit night, and one of the skits involved people playing the department heads, and the guy who played that department head did nothing but shove cannoli in his mouth and yell “CANNOLI! I NEED MORE CANNOLI!”

Well, I tried. I still think it’s funny.
