Prayer gives you a moment to stop, to think outside yourself, not wallow in your own dismay – Meshell Ndegeocello
Some years ago I brought her into work. She’s so old that I can’t even find an image of her on Google images…. anyway, she gets given to new employees. The newest one, a cute as a button young firmware engineer, just wandered by my desk and asked, doe eyed, when I wanted my doll back.
I sat up straight and said, “Seven inch posable action figure, PuhLEASE!”
And I then said, “Anytime. When you feel like you’re adequately integrated into the team, bring her on back and I’ll give her to the next new employee!”
This is called, “The Passing of the Lara”.
In family news, Katie is moving in with me and Jeff until she finds a better place to live, Keith startled the living hell out of everybody in earshot last night when he proposed living with his sister, and we had a yummy dinner all four of us at Planet Bachelor.
