I Know Some People Who Have Some Repenting To Do

Besides myself of course. I have a lot of trouble with repentance, but that's not really the issue here.

1. Whoever it is that is trashing the bathroom at my new office: It is so absurd. On my first day of work I noticed the printed signs in every bathroom stall that encouraged employees to wash their hands and not leave a mess. This seemed totally absurd to me, until I noticed that despite TWICE daily cleanings, the bathroom is disgusting by 4pm. Once I walked in to see that someone had taken paper towels and strewn them all around and in a toilet.Why? There is plenty of toilet paper.

2. The inventor of the bagel: I've gained 10 lbs this past year, and it is in large part due to the delicious nature of bagels.

3. Whoever thought it was a good idea to keep office buildings freezing: It is wasteful, uncomfortable, and bad for the environment. What happened to 60 degrees?

4. Google: I have many issues with Google this year. Their refusal to not record searches/ say that they'll never turn them over to the government for one. But my most recent issue is with Google presentations. Google has made its name by providing simple services with many nifty features. Presentations doesn't even come close to PowerPoint (as much as I hate it), you can't build charts, or graphs, or really even images, and forget importing anything over 2mb. Google, way to raise my hopes and then dash them.

5. High Heels: They are awful. Expensive, uncomfortable, and cause lasting damage. Why again are they necessary in a business environment?

I never ever understood High Heels. People tell me they're supposed to make women more attractive... but mostly I just end up feeling sorry for them.

PS - Annie, it's always a pleasure to see you blog again. =)

LT- first of all, I am weaning myself off the blogging. I found myself starting to write a post two weeks ago and deleted it. Apparently the addiction is hard to kick.

As for high heels... in terms of attractiveness, they force your legs into a position that makes the muscles in your calves and thighs flex, and look better. They also throw your butt out back, and your chest out front. Basically, you hobble yourself to contort into a "sexy" pose.

If I was female you'd never catch me in heels. Comfort is the name of the game.

Jack- you'd do it if you knew it was the office uniform. I had to buy three new pairs for work, or I would be the only woman not wearing them. The last thing you want to do as a junior member of a team is to stand out.

Does this attempt to avoid blogging only cover posting? Or also visiting other blogs and commenting on them?

Annie said...

LT- all of the above. Although there are some blogs that I can't seem to stop reading. And I do, in fact, comment occasionally.

I say do the frum think and wear a skirt down to your ankles, that way they'll never know that you aren't wearing high heels (it works for me ALL the time!)

Nice to see you posting...we miss you!
