So I know I've been a bad little blogger lately with less updates than usual, but I've been SO busy at work.
And I know I have literally 982 emails/comments to get to at some point, but I have been SO busy at work.
So busy in fact that my company finally decided that they were going to hire another accountant, glory glory hallelujah. They're already interviewing and everything, so hopefully I'm not quite so busy soon.
And then maybe I can get to work after the sun rises and leave before it sets, because you know what work? Despite my pale skin and my propensity to sometimes say "mmmm bloood" when I am drinking my morning pomegranate juice, I am NOT a vampire.
So the only thing really getting me down at the office now is the fact that they have not been letting me participate in the interviews for some reason. Because apparently the suggested interview questions I emailed my boss were "not material." Which is crap, because if I have to sit next to this new person every day then it is fully "material" to me whether or not they would consent to impromptu lunchtime Rap Battles when I'm feeling gangsta.
But anyway, through all of the recent crazy-tragic-never-magic times at work, a couple of colleagues and I have been understandably spending a good amount of time shuttling back and forth from each other's desks, trying to decide the best way to you know, amortize warrants and shit.
This morning, one such colleague was at my desk and noticed that the little light on my cordless mouse was blinking red.
"That light means that you're going to need to change the battery in your mouse soon," he said, "let me know if you need any help with that."
He was serious.
So I was like "Wait, did you actually think for a second there that I would not be able to figure out why my mouse stopped working? Like in your head just now I was all 'Mouse, why you no work and be red-blinky? How I fix?"
He just shook his head and walked away.
So I briefly considered sending him this video.
But then I remembered that I am blocked from YouTube at work because of an incident involving me sending the wrong video to the wrong person.
So I came up with another plan.
When my colleague left for the evening, I sent him an email (marked urgent).
"Soooo.....I know I got offended earlier when you insinuated that I wouldn't be able figure out how to change the battery in my mouse...but it turns out I actually can't figure out how to change the battery in my mouse. I've tried EVERYTHING. I'm not sure where I'm going wrong exactly. Can you please help me in the morning?"
And then I went to the kitchen to scrounge for string cheese and had a brainstorm.
Nevermind! Problem Solved! Have a nice evening.--Lauren
There is just no telling what work tomorrow will bring Blogstalkers.
