So I came into work today and decided to hide. While that may sound hard to do if I mentioned I am also in the cubicle world, I actually have it quite easy. I stand at work, meaning I stand at a desk and work that way. When I moved to this floor, I almost went back to sitting after standing for close to 3 years. The cubicle walls up here are like 4ft tall therefore only giving privacy if everyone is sitting. Standing at the desk is great – but I see everything and everyone. I’m like the greeter for this part of the floor or something. I eventually (less than 10 days after I moved) that I needed to stand. This sitting stuff was for dogs. They raised my desk and made me happy.
I discovered after a few months that if I want people to leave me alone – I sit. I have two desks – one could not be raised. If I sit at it and type of my laptop, people don’t think I’m at work. Tricky, huh?
I have had people walk right up to my cube wall, look over me to my standing desk, mutter aloud “where is she”, and walk away. All I have to do is not laugh.
So today I am sitting. Sitting, headphones one, listening to music – and ignoring everyone.
So I’ve worked on my status report and other administrivia bullshit. I’ve looked up places for SB and I to stay in June when we go back to commune with the ocean over a bottle or six of wine. I’ve poked around online a bit too.
And found things like this:
For those who didn’t see the movies or who haven’t seen this actor as an adult – this is the guy who played Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter Movies.
I’ve decided this should be a part of an “It’s get better” campaign targeted at awkward pre-teens who seem like they will never grow out of it –
Or for the guys reading this going “oh lord” at the fact I’m ogling a now-legal child actor….
Animals eating berries which makes them look like monsters. Gruesome!
Then I read The Bloggess and her latest post about how last night she declared herself President and took over Canada.
On there she showed her new socks.
I am in love.
I want every fucking pair.
They use the world fuck……
Damn – now my boss is pestering me…..can’t hide on skype (or at least not in a way that would keep him from calling).
