Corporate Socialness (Online)

Something has happened at work that has left me feeling quite tickled. A little while ago, they came to me and said in so many words, "Sobrina, we'd like to give you more work to do. What do you think about that?" Well, it turned out to be a great kind of new work to do, the kind that requires me to be on Facebook and Twitter. All. Day. Long. Because I am now the resident keeper of our company's Facebook and Twitter. It's really rather delightful because even though people can still go to HR and complain about the incessant sweating I do, at least they cannot complain that I'm not doing my job and am just squandering away the day on the internet. Now if only they could come to me and say, "Now we need you to stay on top of all your favorite blogs and send us a report with all the interesting bits at the end of each week. Make sure to keep an eye on the fashion trends. And also, feel free to spend time writing to magazine and book publishers when you notice a spelling mistake." I would have my almost dream job.

Speaking of sweating, last week Tanu sent me this card from someecards.com. Two things:

1) Perhaps the sweetest card I have gotten in a long, long time
2) Someone has the awesome job of coming up with these cards, and I, for one, would like to meet this person who seems to know me so well, almost as well as Tanu

Love It! As a fellow sweater i feel your pain. i am thankful that shoulderpads are making a comeback - i was once told to sew those into the armpit areas of my tops...pitpads - now, there's an invention! Keep sweating, i say...where are those global hypercolor tshirts these days?!

These cards are hilarious. How wrong would it be if we sent this as our thank you cards for the wedding:

Great card! Once at my old job I was standing over my co-worker's desk and he noticed a drop of moisture that had fallen on it. He asked me if I had drooled. No, the truth was that it was just my armpit dripping. So glad I'm not the only one.

Ashley Joy, that story is almost too funny to be true. LOL. Thanks for sharing!

I was given some Facebook related work at my job too, I felt totally guilty for logging into it even though I was suppose to!
