Square Pegs

The following little ditty is circulating around the internet and was sent to me to celebrate my liberation from Office Weasle-dom. In the shameless interests of procuring good karma, I wish to share the joy.

Click Me and Turn Up the Speakers!

Apologies to James Blunt.

(Thanks Cath!)

Ah, yes! I also have escaped the curse of the cubicle - in fact, I am on a roll, since I have recently moved with my colleagues from a small room with falling plaster, windows that won't close, and a leaking roof into an ex-managers office, with good plaster and no leaks!!!

Life is smiling on me! Well, that and the Internet - I'd go stark staring bonkers wthout it...

How sad Knarf. Here you go (just hum as you read. Any tune, no one cares):
My job is stupid my day’s a bore,
Inside this office from eight to four
Nothin’ ever happens my life is pretty bland,
Pretending that I’m working, pray I don’t get canned.

My Cubicle, My cubicle

It’s One of Sixty two
It’s my small space in a crowded place
Just a six-by-six foot booth
And I hate it that’s the truth

When I give a sigh as the boss walks by,
no one ever talks to me or looks me in the eye.
And I really should work but instead I just sit here and surf the Internet.

In My Cubicle, My cubicle
It doesn’t have a view.
It’s my small space in a crowded place
I sit in solitude.
And sometimes I sit here nude.

Geez knarf, do you own a Tandy 1000?

I don't own a puter right now. I had one, then when I moved three years ago, my then new housemate had a better one, so I ditched my obsolete dinosaur. I recently moved out, and I have no computer except my one at work - which is fine, because I can surf at work, I just can't scan photos, which is a problem because I'm not going digital, so I need to scan prints to get them on the web.

But, no, I've never owned a Tandy 1000. Nor have I owned a Commodore 64...

Knarf ... I think Chrisso was just joking.

Boss: Why aren't you working?
Worker: I didn't see you coming!

C in R,

I didn't necessarily think he was joking, but I thought I'd 'splain anyway. I was being sort of mock-serious, but I guess that didn't come through.

BTW, why would Chrisso post under anon? I didn't realize that was he.

I meant: "I didn't necessarily think he was serious".

Jeez! It wasn't Chris??! You're right - I just ASSumed it was!
I should have known that he'd never make Radio Shack jokes in deference to Dad!

Well, this is a perfect example of what happens when you ASSUME!!!

You make an ASS of U and ME.

Let this be a lesson, little girl...
