Are you ready for some… ticker tape?

7 Feb

I might not be the biggest football fan out there, but I can sure get behind standing on the roof of my office building, throwing shredded documents and toilet paper into the breeze to celebrate our fair city’s Super Bowl victory. And to anyone who was twenty floors below us who may have gotten nailed in the head with a roll of toilet paper, don’t look at me. I’m strictly a paper-tossing kind of girl, I threw nothing of actual weight over the side of the building. Because, you know, I don’t like killing people.


View from the 20th floor roof deck
Looks like snow, but is really everyone on Wall Street’s shredded documents. Oh the stories they could tell…
Toilet paper. Because we are classy.

Sorry, sir. I definitely contributed to this.


Honey Bears

31 Jan

I’m pretty sure my coworker just witnessed me in the office kitchen saying “Hello, honey bears!” to the cute, plastic, honey-filled faces that looked up at me from the Fresh Direct delivery box. I was just welcoming them into the kitchen supply cabinet… and then realized there was a decidedly human presence behind me as my coworker (How long was he there? Why didn’t I hear him walk in? Is he a ninja? Did it have to be the hot coworker?) filled up his water bottle at the Poland Spring dispenser. I continued to put groceries away. He got his water and left. And I will always wonder if he heard me welcoming our new, sweet friends.

Honey bears deserve polite greetings, too.
