Yeah… you can officially hate me now…

Once again, the strange things I do for work…. A recent weekend found me dressed to the nines, sipping quality tequila and struggling to hear and be heard over the thump-thumping of the DJ while smiling, laughing and otherwise carrying on and watching the cute young go-go dancer gyrate away… Nah, I wasn’t clubbing. Not…

The Work Files: Work From Home Roxy

Coming soon to a toy store near you! Just kidding, but my recent change of status has brought me into the realm of “working from home.” And as exciting as that may seem (ooh – work in your jammies) it brings with it a whole new realm of fun. Like, the small desk that was…

The Work Files: saying goodbye to SEO

I’ll spare y’all the gory details, but suffice to say, my association with the Internet Marketing company has come to an end. I’ll admit to mixed feelings. Sure, I thought it was a great opportunity at first – but facts soon proved me wrong. Sure, I thought I’d learn a lot – but again, facts…

The beat goes on… The beat goes on

And it’s time for me to roll on out of here. Wow. I’ve been with this company for years now – in fact, that was one of the reasons I accepted the job here, there were so many employees who were “long term” and I was looking for a career, not just a job. Meanwhile,…

The Work Files … What do you get when…

You take the mailroom clerk’s four-year-old son, add in the “grappling dummy” we have here for evaluation and pictures, the former cop/marine and martial arts editor guy, and add in the woman who knows that boys like to play rough? Well… ummm… The pics are blurry because it’s awfully hard to get clear pictures of…

The Work Files – Where is my desk?

Once again, I am left to wonder… Witness – the usual state of my desk. There are the usual items of a cluttered in basket, notepad, sticky note reminders and other evidence of work in progress. Witness my desk on a recent workday when a pile of stuff to get shipped out got dumped upon…

The Work Files – Strange Things On My Desk

I’m used to it by now, or at least, I should be. Strange things often wind up on my desk with no explanation, rhyme nor reason. This week was no exception. I’ve been busy getting everything together for the Christmas luncheon (oddly enough, going reasonably smoothly, thank you very much) and I’ve been decorating the…

The Work Files – Parlez-Vous Français?

Warning – this post contains some strong language – just not in English. “Mon Dieu!” and “Je n’ai aucun sens de modèle!” Those were the phrases greeting me within the first paragraph of an article I was busily proofing. Fortunately, my limited grasp of French was enough to tell me what my charming little writer…
