Anyone out there into omens (not the movie) because I saw a dead bird when I walked into the office today and something tells me that isn't a good sign. And then I think karma might really have it in for me because there was also a dead bird (or what was left after something ate it) on the walkway up to my apartment building when I got home. Do I need to be worried? Should I burn some sage or something? Sacrifice Justin Bieber?
Yeah, that's right. I was wearing flip flops at work today even though they are non-legal footwear. Why? Was it because I am a badass? Was it because it's my way of telling HR that I don't agree with their policies? Was it because I don't give a flying F%!&? Um, or was it because I forgot to pack black socks when I went to my moms place this weekend and didn't want to look like a nerd in white socks with black mary janes? (Note: I am not a Hipster, which is why I couldn't pull that look off.)
People seemed really tired at work today. Chances are I noticed because I was one of those who was really tired. See, that's what happens when you share a bed with a dog who is a restless sleeper and have to drive 1.5 hours to get to work from your moms house. You sometimes are tired.
Why doesn't Lisa Frank make office supplies for the working world? There are some days when I really could use a smiling kitten or a psychedelic dolphin to help me get through the day.
Hiccups - I. Hate. Them. I am the type of person who doesn't get hiccups which go away. When I get them, I have them on and off all day. Which is not only annoying but kinda embarrassing when someone goes to ask you a questions and you answer with a mighty hiccup in their face. If I did this to anyone I work with today, I am sorry....
There aren't any tried and true rules to decide when a new employee has been accepted into the fold. Unless you work in my department and even though you are an adult, your mom sends in candy for the candy dish because she has heard about how popular it is. If you can pull that off, consider yourself GOLDEN.
Found out today I have to up and move cubicles. While I could share my feelings on that here, I think it is best saved for Wednesday, the day the move will happen. Don't be sad - it will just give you something to look forward to...
