Holy hell people! I do one little interview and my list of followers explodes like a black toner cartridge on that chick from accountings white shirt.
I was going to do some weak post about waking up late because ghosts changed my alarm settings (maybe tomorrow) but since I was raised right, I decided the more proper thing to do would be to introduce myself to everyone. So here are some fun facts about yours truly which will let all my followers, both old and new, get a better grasp as to who The Office Scribe really is.
First off, I write under a pseudonym. Why? Because I have always wanted to legally change my name to The Office Scribe but my parents wouldn't let me. Wait, no, that was Rumplestilskin. I use a fake name because I was afraid of my employers finding out about the blog. That worked wonders, until I was interviewed by MSNBC.com and people found out. Opps. Oh well, as you can see, I didn't lose my job (yay first amendment!) and I continue to write about work.
And since I don't use my real name, sometimes people are confused as to my gender. I am, in fact, female. Don't believe anything you hear otherwise.
I write about work because that is where I spend most of my time. And because when I was a kid I thought working in an office would be a horrible experience. And yes, sometimes it is. But I learned to look past that and find the entertainment in working in a cubicle for 8 hours a day. Sometimes it may seem like I don't like my coworkers but they are my second family and I do enjoy my time with them.
One day though, I would like to finish one of my many screenplays and jet off the Hollywood, buy a place in Venice Beach, and spend my days as a professional misanthrope who makes serious bank writing and directing (I did go to school for both film and creative writing.)
In regards to the blog, you should all know I usually post at night, when the thoughts of the day at the office are fresh in my head. Every Monday is a Manic Monday post where it's whatever thought occurred to me that day, word vomit style. And I sometimes run contests, for which there can be fabulous prizes.
I leave you to all digest that which I have just written. I am a very open person and if you need to know anything, just ask.
Now I'm off the start following all of you who were kind enough to start following me today. You have no idea what you are in for...
~ The Office Scribe
P.S. - Also thanks to those of you who tracked me down via Twitter. I am all over that crap at night.
P.P.S. - I do have another blog, Away From Her Desk, where I write about stuff that isn't office/work related. So basically it is a lot of posts about movies and alcohol (two of my favorite subjects). You may want to check that out too if you get a chance.
