Am grumpy as today at work I spent the morning doing someone else's job because they had not done it themselves and now I am behind at my job; also today at work my boss told me off for flirting with one of the reporters! Which is just unfair.
Me: "Colleague just told me off for flirting with Reporter!"
Boss: "You were."
Me: "I know! It's hilarious because he doesn't flirt back."
Boss: "You're mean! He has a girlfriend."
Me: "I'm not mean! He doesn't mind. It is flirting practice."
Boss: "He just stands there. When I came out before he was blushing. You're terrible."
Me: "Ha ha ha ha ha, sorry."
Boss: "No you're not."
Anyway what with the metaphorical Dogs of Life and the increased workload and the pending sexual harassment investigation I thought it would be nice to focus on the positive for a minute.
Do you guys know about Three Beautiful Things? It is a blogging concept (I feel like a wanker for writing that) where every day you blog about three things which have brought you some measure of joy. Here are mine.
Three Beautiful Things
1. Beauty and the Beast has been re-released at the cinema in 3-D and I am going to see it on Sunday. With a date! With a date who has a pilot's licence. I know, right? He is also a great guy and I like him a lot and blah blah but hey you guys, pilot's licence*. Told Dad about this via text and he replied "keep your flaps up ha ha." Dad is a classy fellow.
2. At work, printed off the WHAT turtle from a couple of days ago (scroll down if you have forgotten) and stuck it on a
and now whenever someone comes over to my desk and starts in with the "Ally, I have a question," or the "Ally, can you help me with something," or the "Ally, do you know if," I just hold up the WHAT turtle and it is immensely satisfying.
3. I am sitting on the couch in my onesie, with the dog, eating a pie. It is cold outside and the heat pump is on, and I don't have to be at work again until tomorrow. Soon I am going to make a cup of tea and go to bed and read blogs and talk to My Date and maybe watch some TV on the internet and that, people, is a Beautiful Thing.
*But, sweetheart, I don't just like you for your pilot's licence, honestly! Also, about the reporter flirting. I know it sounds bad but I was totally just honing my skills so that when I flirt with you it is really good flirting.
