Manic Monday #7

A good way to sneak up on your co-workers is to wear moose hide moccasins like an Indian. Unfortunately pairing them with corduroy pants kind of negates the stealthiness.

I was, and still am, in a weird mood today.  Probably because all I did yesterday was watch horror movies.  So what am I watching tonight?  Dead Silence - it's about killer puppets.  And if that doesn't hook you then how about the fact that it stars Jason from True Blood and Donnie Wahlberg from NKOTB?  It's like an hour and a half of awesomeness but will most likely keep me in a weird mood.

About halfway through the day the pain from my sunburn turned itchy and started to use the back of my desk chair like a bear uses a tree.  And yes, this will continue tomorrow.

Have you ever come back to work on Monday and seen something you jotted down before you left on Friday and have no idea what it means?

I went to a presentation this afternoon and it was awesome.  Why?  Not because it was an interesting topic (though it was) or because it had an enjoyable slide show (which it did) but because the presenter brought in a basket of mini desserts from Panera.  Kudos to that presenter.  She knows our employees well!

I once worked in an office where the only reliable way to guarantee attendance at a meeting was to advertise it with refreshments - the more specific the better.

What's better is leaving 'urgent' notes of nonsense on coworker's desks late on Friday.

The confused "WTF?" look you get on Monday morning kicks the week off nicely.

"I have no idea where that memo came from but you better ask the boss. It says urgent."

Then you get a bonus "WTF?" look on
the bossman's face and a coworker making that long embarrassed walk back to their desk.

Panera! I love their cinnamon crunch bagels. No one ever entices us with Panera at my office.

Panera Bread....mmmmmmmmm.

You dare me to follow you and I can't find you on Twitter? What kind of dare is that?
