The virtual office is a great thing, because of the YOGA PANTS WELCOME dress code and the close proximity to the leftover Halloween candy, but it can get lonely. Especially on a day when you’re juggling three different projects, including one that involves building a power point presentation largely from screen shots of Twitter.
I love my job.
Fortunately, I have Kristen to keep me company, via IM, while I’m working. Mostly we talk about, well, work, but sometimes things go a little off the rails. Just a little.
Kristen: FYI, just saw that Bass Pro Shops are doing a thing this weekend
Santa’s workshop, letting kids create an ornament
you know, while dad buys fishing poles and bait
me: or a gun
Kristen: no, that’d be me
Kristen: (I got stuck in a dress I tried on there the last time I was there)
(it was actually cute, but I almost had to call Jared for help)
me: wait you tried on a dress at BASS PRO?
Kristen: I know
me: cannot stop laughing
Kristen: it was a tommy bahama type thing
me: that made my whole day
Kristen: next to the camo lingerie
Kristen: yes, I took a picture
of the lingerie
not me stuck in the dress
b/c OMG emBARrassing
And then I asked her how to spell Nick Lachey’s name. Yes I really did. FOR WORK, you all.
Later, though, there was this:
me: had to edit your COLON DETOX tweet out of my screen shot
me: i know!!!!
Kristen: i have tears in my eyes
me: maybe I should have left it …
Kristen: Be warned! Do not follow kgseymour!
She writes raunchy things!
When Wade hears stories like this, he says, “No wonder no one understands what you do.” He’s right. I’m kind of hoping that my blog will wind up projected on a screen somewhere tomorrow, with this post front and center. Because this is what I do. FOR A LIVING.
Bass Pro and colon detox and Nick Lachey. My day in a nutshell.
