I Have No Doubt I Will Tell My Grandchildren This Story

October 4, 2008 § Leave a comment

I have two creative meetings a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon; there are two “designated drivers” in both of these meetings — these are the people who fire up the good old AOL client and project their desktop onto a big fancy screen for all to see.

As an occasional meeting DD, I can tell you that the first rule is turning on that IM away message. You are bound to get incoming messages, and while they’re most likely to be work-related, why gamble?

In an afternoon meeting this week, the DD, our male night-shift editor neglected to put up his away message. While we were hotly debating Kim Kardashian’s weight (apparently she swears she is 115 pounds), an IM popped up on his screen, and though he closed it out almost instantly, everyone in the room saw that it said:

AnonymousFriend: so you hit that last night?

Needless to say, the meeting got sidetracked for a good five minutes. Once we all got our giggles under control, the editor, very calmly told us, “For the record, the answer is no.”

Needless to Say, I Have Since Called Four People ‘Butlers’

January 3, 2008 § 3 Comments

Me: I wish Jeeves was here to help me with all these bags.
Her: Where did the name Jeeves come from? Who started that? Is it just the name for — [whispers] a butler?
Me: It was probably — wait. Did you just whisper ‘butler’? Is that some kind of offensive term all of a sudden? If so, I can’t wait to start looking sideways at people and accusing them under my breath of being butlers!

Why I Kinda Love My Coworkers

July 27, 2007 § 1 Comment

Just before 2 p.m. the other day, I was in a meeting with a huge group of people, and a random guy walked into the conference room.

Random Guy: Is this the tech meeting?
Coworker #1: Do we look like nerds?
Coworker #2: Um, there are girls in this room.
Coworker #3: Of course, the tech meetings always start at 1:55.

Our Office, Redesigned

July 23, 2007 § 3 Comments

We redecorated our home office (nee second bedroom) not too long ago. I wish we had thought to take “Before” photos, but we totally forgot. Let me say this much: It was ugly and disorganized; we had a broken down desk facing the wall, with one chair that we had to compete for anytime either of us wanted to pay bills or check email or watch porn.

Anyway, the main thing is that we got a plain white dining table that we set up perpendicular to the wall, and we call it “the partner desk” and we sit facing each other and on Saturday mornings, when we’re not sure what to do with a whole wide open day that’s all ours, I’ll write down suggestions (like “Take me to breakfast!” or “Pool!”) on the back of a junk mail envelope and I’ll say, “This is my final offer” and then we’ll go do the opposite of whatever I wrote down.

This is my side of the desk:My Side

We still really need to do something with that wall, but I’m not sure what. I am too lazy for painting and very much against installing any kind of shelfing. Maybe some Blik wall decals? Also, does anyone have any magic tricks for hiding cords? I HATE CORDS. The day every electronic is wireless will be the happiest day of my life. Even if I’m 100 years dead.

This is his side of the desk:
His Side

This is the reorganized Expedit (aka The Home Must-Have for Collectors of Records, Books, and Other Assorted Junk): The Expedit

This is a closeup of one of the chairs:
The Chair

We just had the following conversation while each sitting on our own sides of the partner desk:

Me: I just put a post up that you might enjoy!
Him: Let me hit refresh!

I found that amusing, because it means he’s kind of a stalker, and kind of full of shit, both being qualities that I find extremely attractive in men.

What’s also fun is that sometimes, when we’re both sitting at the desk working or paying bills or watching porn, I’ll reach over really quietly and unplug his USB mouse, and then watch as he gets more and more irritated that THE MOUSE JUST UP AND STOPPED WORKING AND IT SEEMS LIKE THAT IS REALLY HAPPENING A LOT LATELY. And eventually I’ll crack up and he’ll figure it out. Again.

Oh, and there’s a cat tent.Cat Tent

What’s an office without a cat tent? The feline partners here require a lot of naps.
