Did everyone just luuuurrrrveee the JERSEY SHORE last night? I did, I know it wasn’t very eventful but it was a good teaser. My new goal in life is to get PaulyD to retweet my tweet or write me back. It’s going to happen. And when it does it’s going to be… AWESOME!
While watching the Jersey Shore last night I saw a preview for a new show on fox… “The New Girl” It’s about a girl starting over and moving in with 3 guys. Sound familiar? Yeah, that’s because it’s MY LIFE!! WTF FOX!!!
Yes Fox, you’re welcome for your new smash hit. Do blog entries count as a poor mans copyright? Think I could get them to hire me on as a writer? Like hey guys, been there done ALL OF THIS! You know what though, I bet they don’t make her live in the basement for 6 months to earn her keep before giving her 4 walls and a door. I’ll be curious to see how the story pans out, I would put money on 2 seasons from now she’s dating one of the roommates. We shall see.
What do we think about people in the office who make their email signature look like an actual signature. For example:
If you are ever in need of my services please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.
Executive Director of Scooping Poopies
Personally, I’m not a big fan of it. I think it’s unprofessional and makes you look like you have a lot of time on your hands. But I’ve been noticing like EVERYONE that I email with at work does it. Am I retarded and missed the memo that creating a fake e-signature is in? Like if you’re going to go to this much trouble why not type out the whole GD email in word, print it out, sign it, and then PDF or fax it to me? I just do not understand the purpose of using a different font for their name. Baffling. Granted they’re all old and amazed at all the cool things computers can do. Just know that I had to look up how to do HTML coding in order to make this point and get that handwriting font to show up, so appreciate! There’s more where that came from, friends.
The best part of this is that I wrote all of the above about people being big gay wads with their cursive email signatures last night (Thursday) and a few minutes ago (on Friday) we received this email from CFO:
Staff should use an e-mail signature on e-mail correspondence. We have chosen the standard e-mail signature format below and include instructions to create a signature. Please create or update your existing e-mail signature to reflect the e-mail standard example below using Calibri font, size 10, black, with no background, color or graphics. At your department manager’s discretion, you may be asked to include department specific information.
Standard e-mail example
123 Main Street- Suite (your suite number)
Partyville, USA 12345
T (555) 123-0000
Looks like I wasn’t the only one that noticed all the tool bags making us look unprofessional. Touche my good man CFO. Touche.
Speaking of work, it’s been far too long since anything embarrassing happened to me while on the job. Until today. I’m walking to the copy machine with a pile of $1,000,000 checks to copy and my heel gets stuck in the cuff of my oh so stylish pants, the express flare leg dress pant. I go to take a step and I felt it happening and said… “OH NO!!!” as I went down using the file cabinent to brace my fall. It held me up so I didn’t completely faceplant. But while I’m using all my strength and will to hold myself up using the file cabinent and while simultaneously trying to get my heel unstuck from the cuff of my pant leg a group of businessmen walk by to go to the conference room for a meeting (Little Mikey included) and the old asian man is standing there watching my struggles and asking if I’m ok. It’s really a wonder that I’m still here and not off in a corner somewhere ugly girl crying. So this has taught me a lesson, I’m officially too old and too clumsy to try and look stylish and cute while at work. If I had on my high waters this wouldn’t have happened, or if I had been wearing flats this wouldn’t have happened. It’s what I get.
Happy Friday everyone! Thank god.
