Everything’s Fine

On account of Zombie Snowpocalypse 2011 ™ and the surprising number of employees working from home or just taking the day off because it’s, uh, snowing in Colorado, I’ll be working from work today.

Roads are completely clear and empty.

Zombie Snowpocalypse 2011 ™: Hey, that’s just how the media has been portraying this, the first storm of the season, so that’s what I’m going to call it. They got everyone worked into a frenzy so they’re now terrified to go outside. There were even runs on grocery stores yesterday while the citizenry panicked and bought up all of the perishable items. Alas, for the well-prepared and aware, even if it turns out to be 16″ of snow for the metro area like some talking head predicted, it’s just business as usual.

Overheard in An Office

No, not in my office, but overheard this little exchange at another company altogether, between two employees there: a woman and a man:

Him: Oh my god, is it ever okay to wear a mini-skirt and Fuck Me Boots* to the office? 

Her: If you’re the slutty secretary at an escort service, maybe. Otherwise, uh… no. And women wonder why they get treated differently in the working world. Jeez. 

Him: Hum, maybe that’s what they’re doing on that team: Sure, we can work a miracle for you. You want happy ending, too? 

Her: Well, they say you should always wear good boots when climbing. I guess that means climbing to the top of the corporate ladder, too.

I about shot coffee out of my nose.

* Pretty sure I knew who he was talking about and what he was describing: those leather, knee-high, heel things. Is there an actual name for those?
