Best. Workday. Ever.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Twin C @ 10:51 am

I’m late to work (as usual) and I head into the pantry to get myself some free coffee, to counteract the $3.75 Pret A Manger egg salad on a baguette which is really tasty but WAY too expensive. As I am making my pseudo-mocha in the Flavia machine, I look over to see a soda bucket, filled not with ice and Pepsi One, but Easter Candy. LOTS of Easter Candy. Including at least eight Creme Eggs. I stay calm, although I am dancing around like Snoopy during “Flash Beagle!” in my head. Not wanting to appear like too much of a pig, I only grab four. (I already got two yesterday from the pantry, when there was a much smaller collection of Easter Candy, and I thought “this may be my only chance!” How happily wrong I was.) A coworker comes in, grabs another four, and says “I don’t really want to eat these, but they’re good to keep by my desk.” Her cube is one away from mine. So theoretically, I could eat HER Creme Eggs, because she’s not going to, and then eat MY Creme Eggs later on. AWESOME. And I haven’t even been to a drug store yet to cash in on the “four for $1″ action that is no doubt occurring as I type.

Mike Daisey was awesome last night, talking about games and relationships and central Maine. His wife and their family play some crazy game called Stinko (?) involving multiple decks - it sounds like a cross between Double Solitare, Spit, and Chains and Malice (or, as we know it, Chinese Charity). I have already asked her to teach me how to play. I also caught the second half of The Moth’s story slam - the theme was Nerds and Geeks, and there were some fantastic stories, including one by a friend who talked about the horrors of his Junior Prom, and taking a limo from Westchester into NYC and not knowing where to go. Excellent story, MD!

I have to (eat some Creme Eggs) go do some work now.


  1. Flash! Flash! Flash! Flash! Flash… Beagle! When he flies he soars like a golden EAGLE! (ooooh-oooh-ooooh)

  2. I’ve never been one for cadbury creme eggs, at least not in my younger ears, but as I’ve aged I really do enjoy the fine taste of cadbury chocolate and gooey stuff. I say eat your co-workers eggs first and then you’re own, and then, decide what your next egg move will be.

    Why are you so funny? I cant stop coming to this blog. I’m a polenblog addict!
