Also unrelated: Jared Leto is in NZ and I don't know whether to be excited or throw up. I wonder if I Tweeted him hard enough (sounds rude) he'd come and visit me? Probably not, eh.
Also unrelated: Kate is singing me a terrible Twilight version of Taylor Swift's You Belong with Me. The original, for those who don't know, is about the girl next door who is in love with her best friend who is dating a cheerleader so basically every teen movie ever.
She wears short skirts, I wear t-shirts
She's cheer captain and I'm on the bleachers
He wears khakis, I wear ripped shorts
He's a vampire, I am a werewolf
It's fucking horrible and it's going to be stuck in my head until I die.
Anyway, today's main point is that apparently saying "Nice tie" to a male colleague (or, I guess, a female colleague who wears ties) is akin to saying "Let's go fuck in the photocopy room,*" and I've been propositioning workmates by accident. Apparently this is a well known thing which I have never heard of before.
I found out about this because female colleague and I were walking down to the carpark and passed male colleague, who is currently straddling the line between 'colleague' and 'friend', and I said "Nice tie!" because he was wearing a nice tie and then we got to the basement and female colleague got the giggles and started going "Wooo-ooo! Ally and [male colleague] up a tree," and I became annoyed because I just meant he had a nice tie! If I'd been trying to proposition him I would've done it in a classy corporate way, by saying, "Hey, baby, you can onboard me any time." Did you guys know about this "nice tie" thing? Why didn't you tell me?
*But maybe not, because we don't actually have a photocopy room. We do have a storage room with a mezzanine, though, which is totally where you'd do it.
