I was commenting at work how everyone is so loud.
And then I got told by my friend, I was also one of the loud people.
At first I felt a little shocked… me loud? And then I realized it’s because everyone in the company comes to visit me at my desk…. like everyone.
People from different floors come to see what I’m up to.
It isn’t too bad, especially if they come to visit me and bring me no additional work… if they have more work, they can find another friend.
My brain is so full of tile sizes and weird specifications that I couldn’t think of anything to draw today…
And then when I briefly emerged from my brain fog at lunch I heard this, and gave it a quick sketch
Thanks Lindsay for giving my something to draw!
So I have been in the center of a lot of changes recently.
And I am really behind on even mentioning birthdays, or anything of that nature! I will totally make that up some other time, probably with my award winning Paul Simon impersonation…
But today is an exciting day!!! It’s a birthday of one of my favorite people of all times….
Although at this point I haven’t worked with him in over a year, I think he’s a magical creature. It was always claimed at my first job that I played favorites… and that my favorite person in the office was Dab.
And now that I don’t work there… Duh! I mean anyone could tell that he was totally my favorite.
Quite simply in my book, Dab always wins. He can win any game, any argument (unless it’s with me), and even extra food that I don’t feel like eating. Dab… wins it all!
And to celebrate the shear spiciness of my friend of the last 8 years, I give you this simple doodle:
Happy Birthday! I hope your year is magical.
And yes… the doodle is too cutesy, but as you know cutesy is just my style :)
Work is a very boring place.
It just is. Actually, it really depends on who is there with you to make it a great experience. But they can’t be with you all the times…
When I’m at my desk for example I really have no one to chat with. So, I am prone to daydream ,and sometimes I carry that to other places in the office.
Namely, the restroom.
Now I’m going to refrain from 97% of the gross things and stories I can tell you about our restroom.
But one of the best features of our lavatory situation is that… the toilets don’t flush.
They just don’t.
You have to wait and flush the toilet 2-3 times to make sure that all your business is history. (And honestly, most people don’t)
So you have a lot of time to decide what you want to do…
I know people fix their hair, write a few texts…
But not me… I daydream.
Sometimes I practice bellydance arms. Sometimes I count the tiles.
Sometimes I pretend the grout lines are a tightrope to walk on.
And boy oh boy, do you have the time to perfect your balance in there.
Today is an exciting day!
It’s my desk buddies birthday… so today was a wonderful celebration of her that included a desk decorated in “Under the Sea” paraphernalia and with lots of pie.
And although work is well… sometimes hard to get through. Elisa makes it a blast for all the hours we are there together. We giggle, walk to 7-11 for slurpees, talk about our weird fascinating lives and wait in long lines for well her to get coffee. And she totally enjoys laughing at me when I turn bright red talking to the cute guy from the office down the hall.
And it’s all amazing. So amazing that my boss is moving me… to Siberia. In hopes that I won’t talk to anyone.
Well until then, we shall party and giggle and get our work done!
This was Elisa’s Halloween costume this year. She really has it together for being 28 :)
Happy Birthday Elisa I hope you have a wonderful year!
It’s Tuesday and you know what that means…
That I really want it to be Friday!!!
I’m not the only one right?
Just don’t let my Project Manager catch me!
This is the second in the my office as John Hughes movie.
My friend Mimi is always giving me advice, and listening to my romantic foibles that sound like only John Hughes could create.
Here we are as Andie and Iona… and I’m pretty sure I’m telling her about that cute guy who’s always staring at me…
But when he talks to me our conversations are always awkward and mostly about chicken.
I loved drawing Iona’s apartment. If Mimi didn’t have a family I know her house would look like this
