the pigs make me happy, anyway.  
The Worst Project Manager in the World is standing alone in the hallway holding a binder, forlorn and bemused, as if waiting for God to speak to him. I pass him on the way to the bathroom.

TWPMitW, forlornly: No one came to my meeting but the room.
Anna: .........

Yes, TWPMitW, this is your life.

It's Friday at my company and that means the shit has hit the fan. Something disastrous always seems to happen on Friday. I'm what's known as the policy on-call this week, so I am sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting to publish some content I wrote on the go-ahead of Legal, who are reviewing it with the CEO. All of which is nicely vague, so I didn't reveal anything, did I? Good. It's a big important company, by the way. I must be a big! important! person! Not sure why they pay me in cowrie shells and root-beer, but it must mean I'm highly valued. Two years ago, as an annual bonus, I got a plastic slinky. Last year, a t-shirt. This year, the sky's the limit!

Meanwhile, I'm stacking pigs.

Oh Lord how I love those little piggies. There's a coffee mug you know.

But not an animated coffee mug! Maybe someday, though.

How could you link to the pigs? It's addictive.

Yes. I also have pig-related carpal tunnel...

The music... the music...

See, I'm not listening to the music, and I wish I could turn it off so that I could listen to my MP3s while I was doing this...

Me too! They go splat. :(

Oh, they make the cutest squishy sound when they hit. I love the pigs.

Have you tried the penguin game, where you belt the penguins across the ice? That one made the rounds of our office pretty quickly -- all you could hear was this faint whoop! whoop! sound of penguins flying. And the gritted teeth of desperate, addicted employees...

The pigs! So glad you found them. Have you managed to secure them a cupcake yet?

the pigs! I love the squeaky sound they make as you send them into the air.

I spent pretty much the entire afternoon putting bees into bubbles.
Anna S.eliade on May 1st, 2004 09:42 am (UTC)
That's a great sentence. *g* I love the bees, too. I've discovered it's much harder to maintain accuracy with the games using the touchpad of a laptop, though, and the bees especially suffer from this.

My mantra for the day is: Must. Stop. Stacking. Pigs.
