I now work in an all female office. The conversations are....ahem....enlightening.

The Joe and his whereabouts
Posted by Intelligirly on Thu, 10/07/2004 - 8:58am.
'Twas rhetorical yes. I'm fairly certain I know exactly where he is. Well, not EXACTLY, because Steff's not allowed to tell me as it were, but I am familiar with his incognito status. And his cats.
Etc. Still, he couldn't take five minutes to say, hello, i'm not dead, just so's you know? I tell ya...

I love Mike!
"i'm not dead..."
Posted by steff on Thu, 10/07/2004 - 12:09pm.
"i'm getting better!"

"no, you're not - you'll be stone dead in a moment."

"i think i'll go for a walk."

"you're not fooling anyone ya know..."

"Bring out yer dead!"

"I feel happy... I feel happy..."

Or, to paraphrase... "Never quote Python when IP is on the line!"

Igirly -- Joe's taking, IRL, an extensive training course and has no access to the Net. And believe me you DON'T want him to post here from work, not his new work. Cause IP needs to keep a low profile.

psst. way to go with the "throwing them off the track" there, parU. *nudging and winking at intelligirly*

i rather think her question was rhetorical. or, at least, more in the way of "hey shorty... get yer ass back here and talk to us!"

It was the office Christmas party. He sang the Beatles song - hello, goodbye.

He sang a 17 minute version.

Did I mention this was right before Christmas?

i don't know how long i'll stay. comments should go on top. Always. But some new comments when commenting to others' commentary on the above comments go below the comments related to the comments. Meaning of course that i end up scrolling for 30 minutes to decifer the conversation as not everyone comments onto the appropriate comments, but sometimes the head comment. boss fired my predecesor for singing to her at a holiday party in the office.


So i think we can all guess as to how long I'll last. My female friends have all had the same reaction - almost verbatim "They hired YOU?!?! They must not have heard about you. Don't hit on any women!"

Posted by Apple on Wed, 09/29/2004 - 4:32am.
To be fair, you don't know how bad the predecesor's voice was, or if her song choice was a tad too squicky for the boss. One never knows, unless you asked, then you do know.
Maybe they did hear about you, and they want to keep their eyes on you, in a "oh dear lord, we have to make sure he doesn't ask to see any hamsters" way, not "hey, baby, I'm keeping your Hawaiian shirt wearing stud self in my vision (wink, wink)!" *G*
"Cooper, HAH!"
The solution

Flat last expanded, newest comments first. It always sorts by chronological order. Set your site preferences to that, and all will be restored.
Flat last??

All chicks
Posted by Monk on Mon, 09/27/2004 - 8:18am.
I can't elaborate too much - but it is safe to say that not only is my office all-female (nod to hypoxic 'except me'), but that the entire company is 99% female.

and i have to say - the new format had a lot to do with my awol-ness. I'm easily confused, and this isn't helping.

So what - now we all just post in our own blogs? Our one site with various threads (nevermind commenting on the state of updates thesedays) has morphed into one site with hidden new comments, difficult to find archives and now at least one potential blog per user?

sigh....maybe i'll just go back to listening about panties. Which certainly seems to raise the question - what was she doing in only panties in front of her brother (why else would she yell for mom?)..or...and potentially more disturbing, if her boyfriend said that - what kind of odd familial relationship is going on that she calls for mommy?
Posted by daen on Mon, 09/27/2004 - 9:10am.
Perhaps if you knew how old she was when this happened, it might make more sense. Maybe she was rehashing a childhood trauma from when she was eight and her brother was seven.

It'd be a shame if you left again, now that you seem to be getting the hang of it.

make that 'nod to daen'
The man of the house
Posted by Intelligirly on Sat, 09/25/2004 - 9:19am.
Monk is a known quantity here. And original or at least first generation. He's just been AWOL for awhile.

Which reminds me--where the HECK is Sir Napalm?

I love Mike!
Isn't there

a law about letting the fox watch the hen house?

Monk... working in a (formerly) all-female office...

The mind boggles.
Posted by meera on Fri, 09/24/2004 - 6:48pm.
why are we assuming that monk is a guy? maybe monk is short for monkey.
Posted by hypoxic on Fri, 09/24/2004 - 9:06pm.
Believe us Monk is all man. If you like you may want to contact him for proof but prepare yourself.
Male ....
Posted by ParU on Wed, 10/06/2004 - 10:50pm.
I must confess that I have met, IRL, the famous Monk. And he seemed male. But then I didn't do a chromosome check. Or any other kind of check.
