Office life

I suspect the forecast's said something to the effect that today was going to be nice and sunny, because I was the only commuter still in winter togs on the train this morning...and on the bus...and here in the office...Everyone else is showing off their milk-white legs and arms and navels, and I stick out like a sore thumb in my warm woollens, but I am also the only one here who doesn't have goosebumps. It's the airco system, you see -- comes on at full blast as soon as the snow starts to melt. ;-)

And I'm sorry, but is there anyone on this planet that can take their manager seriously when he appears at their desk dressed in Bermuda shorts and SOCKS?

And, since anonypooh's won 2 tickets to a They Might Be Giants concert tonight, guess what song's been stuck in my brain for the last 18 hours or more?

You lucky thing! Enjoy them, won't you? It's not your visit to NYC yet, is it?

Well, if it means getting rid of it in my own head, girl, then you've got no chance of stopping me! ;-)

re Bermuda shorts and socks
Eeek! That seems a really good reason to look for another job on the grounds of cruel and unusual punishment!!

One of our managers, in his 40s, is a cycling freek - he used to race, maybe still does, and commutes in skin-tight lycra! But at least he changes when he gets to the office!

I hadn't thought of that aspect yet, but now that you come to mention it: aaarrrggghhh! my eyes! my eyes!

Re: re Bermuda shorts and socks
And can we assume he is showing off milk white legs between the shorts and socks? That's a horrible visual image that is developing, definitely grounds for cruel and unusual.

Actually, it's not as bad as all that -- I guess he's lucky that he's of Asian (Indian) extraction, or it would have been completely chuck-worthy...but shorts and socks! That's as bad as socks and sandals, and worse than brown shoes with a black suit, or white tennis socks with everything! Or am I being a fashion snob?

::reflects for a moment::

No, I don't think so! ;-)

Fashion snob, you? ...hmmmm... Fashion consultant possibly, or maybe fashion police. That could be your new job, but only if they would give you the authority to foce people to go change right then.

And while they were at it, I would make them take off the REDUCED! price stickers from the soles of their shoes, and eat them! :D
