The Man Sleeps Naked & Spoons the Pillow

Jen at the end of day one at jobbie-job: scrambled egg brain. Bedtime: 8:45 PM.

Jen at the end of day two at jobbie-job: deep fried scrambled egg brain. Bedtime: TBD.




Can't. . . . make. . . . heads or tails of. . . . anything.

Well, I guess I should mention that I did buy a faux rattus norvegicus at lunch today (my 2nd day) with a co-worker. It looked real enough and I thought to myself. . . . . my boss has to have that! So, I forked over the $1.80 and took Fred to the office with me where I somewhat positioned him in the boss man's office. . . . . On the keyboard. Apparently, Fred had some letters to type, invoices to fix and orders to place. Or so I thought.

Taking a break from afternoon training . . . . . Upon walking into his office, the boss man convulsed and followed up with some mention of having to go change his drawers as he quickly fled his office.

Later, my coworker ratted me out - no pun intended. ***bah*** Note to self: no coworkers can be alerted to practical jokes before or after they happen.

However, in the end, the boss man was laughing and even became endeared enough with Fred to actually call him Fred. I'm bringing the rat a pretty pink bow for his tail tomorrow. Eventually, I hope to learn to knit to make the rat some clothes. Or maybe I can kidnap him in the future, "give me a raise or the rat gets it!" notes will be sent with tuffs of rat hair attached as well with anonymous photos of blindfolded-Fred will be taken . . . . The possibilities are endless.





And that's it for tonight regarding my new jobbie-job endeavor. I have nothing else. Goodnight.

When you kidnap .. er ratnap Fred take a picture of him being held over a pan with olive oil, some garlic and onions and some herbs.

I feel you on the fried brains. It took me weeks to get back into working again after taking a few months off.

Jay: nice! One to be filed under "must do!"

Ian: they say it'll take me anywhere from 3 to 6 months to understand this job! ***horror*** I am hoping it takes only 3. . . or i'm buying stock in giant kit-kats. . .

Alli: no, I really like the job so far! But it's like Ian said & te fact I've never done this type of work before.
