Manic Monday #13

I love being the office guniea pig.  Whenever there is some new technology or service the higher-ups are thinking of implementing I am always a test subject.  Had I known this in my college years I would have made a killing doing experiments in the psych department.

Why do laser printers need a waste toner box?  All that powdery stuff seems like such a waste.  I wonder if we could recycle it into something else.  Like more ink.  Or finger print dusting powder.

At about 5:45PM today, about 15 minutes before I was supposed to leave, the song "Walking in a Winter Wonderland" got stuck in my head.  Sign #452 that I am slowly losing my mind.

Why isn't a dream dictionary included in a traditional desk reference set?  I feel like that would get so much more use during the work day than a thesarus.  I would say about once a week someone in my office talks about a weird dream they had and we all rush to find out what it is about.  You learn some pretty freaky things about you co-workers when this happens.

You are probably wondering why I have the words "Snow Globe" written on the back of my left hand.  Well I am not going to tell you.  You will have to check back Thursday to find out.  All I will say is that writing stuff on the back of your hand is the best way to remember important things.  And what your parents and teachers said about the ink getting into your blood stream was complete BS.  I mean, everyone has six fingers, right?  (Insert "Princess Bride" joke here)

I can't wait to go into work tomorrow (I know, crazy).  See, I can't remember the last time I got a hair cut so I went to the salon after work and was just going to get a trim and ended up getting about 7 inches taken off.  I look like a different person.  So I guess I won't be surprised if I get escorted out of the building by security for looking like a stranger.

And I would like to thank everyone who seemed concerned that I didn't post much lately.  It's nice to know I am not writing this thing solely for my mental health.

Voo, I got half of my hair cut off three weeks ago. (Almost 6 inches.) Barely any one noticed. Or if they did, they didn't say anything. I really look different too but other than my husband and daughter...I have to wonder if I'm actually invisible or if it's just that no one ever LOOKS at me! I'll be interested in hearing the reaction in your office. CAS

I use a book of Beatles lyrics as a desk reference--kinda like a dream dictionary.

Glad to see you back.

Well, you are writing this for your mental health... but it's not working, since we commentators are all your imaginary friends!

Anyway, regards!
