overheard in the office so far this week...  
"I just rub the butter right on the bagel. I'm pretending it's someone I know."

*

Of Mt. Rainier, visible through the windows:
- "If it blows, we'll be the first to know."
- "And the first among the dead."
- "Ah, but will we know we're dead, though?"

*

- "He's so disingenuous."
- "Is that a word?"

*

My manager: "That's about as much fun as getting shot in the head."

*

"I'll be home around six. Don't let the dog eat that."

***

ETA: Oh, by the way, joy: I am no longer sitting by Annoying Cubicle Woman, *and* I am also out of hearing range of the senior manager's barking-dog clock. The one with a different dog bark for every hour. The one where, at noon, the Labrador Retriever barks twelve times.

Knock on wood for both of these.

ETA2: "Hey, I'm not a trained monkey. Not any more."

When I last worked in an office, the guy down the hall would come in while I was going through the pile of impossible demands that always materialized on my desk overnight (even though I was the last to leave and the first to sign in) and tell me to smile.

That was less annoying than a barking dog clock; I guess I should have known when I was lucky.

Also: people in your office apparently just look at The Mountain, eh? Because if they'd ever driven there they'd know that there's a whole lot of intervening topography.

Julia, it won't really smite from a distance

You're asking them to think! *g*

I can see it from my window too as it turns out--I'm very thrilled.
