sweet anticimipation
My body might be here at work, but my brain is back home staring at my progressing download of Spn's final episode, watching that bar creeeep across the screen. Deeeeeean! Saaaaaam! Impaaaaaaaala! ::wails and gnashes teeth::

So to get us through this traumatic, trialling time, let's have to recent comments from my workplace (i have better ones, but they're all at home. maybe i'll share them later after work, if i'm still waiting for the download):

Me: "I need brain implants so i can control my computer using my mind."
Phil: "You need what?"
Me: "Brain implants."
Phil: "I thought you said something about needing pants."
Me: "Yes, i need a brain in pants."
Phil: "So basically, you need a man?"

Nigel: "...maybe it's time to get our diaries together..."
Phil: "What good will getting their diaries together do?"
Me: "Well maybe they'll..."
Phil: "...mate? And have a little notebook."

Mark: "Dave, when you have 5 minutes, can i have 7 to 10 minutes to talk about something?"
Me: "You know, that's really not going to work."

[discussing finding a worker part-time work]
Dave: "I'm sure you could pick up an 18 year old..."
Nigel: "I assure you, i've tried, and i can't."
Dave: "Why does it always come out WRONG!?"

Me: "My chair sounds like a duck!"

I won't share the conversation me and Phil had about singing leopardskin thongs. Because, disturbing. Oh, and we got a baby Grand Piano last night. Hee. I can play Chitty Chitty Bang Bang already, which my coworker this morning informed me was about blokes in the army getting sex. I think i'll sing it with more gusto now.

Your office sounds much, much more fun than mine. PIANO! *pouts*

I have to admit that i have a lot of fun here! My job is slowly getting better and better, and the guys are great fun for the most part. If only i wasn't weighed down with this trainee at the moment, things would be better. Am battling with a backlog too. But there are frequent 'snorting coke through nose with mirth' moments, so it's a lot of fun sometimes! :P

The piano is SOO cool! It's this tiny tiny grand, it looks so funny. It's great fun. But i spent three hours on it last night, and did no study at all. NOT GOOD.

Not studying = badness.

As for the rest, Yay!

I'm so stealing that. Phil = Murdock.

Ahaha, you must! I could show Phil your fic and how he has inspired ATeam fans across the net. >:P
Phil kept me sane here for a whole year when work was rough, we have the most rediculous conversations.

And to think we just throw germs at each others heads.
pheral From: pheral Date: May 18th, 2007 12:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
That, you squishy fool, was the wierdest comment ever. ::gnaws your leg::

And omg, those blood pillows are awesome!

Boss: "hey are you sleeping on the jo.. OHMYGOD!"

Bwahahaha!
redwolf From: redwolf Date: May 18th, 2007 01:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
The germs are Giant Microbes. I have six (the common cold, yeast, martian life, black death, mange and syphilis - it never gets old giving someone the pox) but there's probably a dozen kicking about the office. We use them as missiles and it's not uncommon to cop one in the head.

We also have a screaming monkey slingshot and more stress balls than you could poke a stick at.

I'm tempted to make one of those blood pillows. It would amuse me to take photos of the dogs with it.

Ahh, yes, i sent my friends baby the Flu bug last christmas, because everything time she came over and brought him to visit he'd get a cold. She thought it was adorable, and her son hasn't had a cold since! Success! :P

We have some plastic pistols around here somewhere, and a foam baseball bat with a not-so-foam baseball, which sometimes gets whacked at unsuspecting workers heads. But i prefer the verbal japery myself. :D

There's a soft, squishy football about. The only drawback being that our crazy Russian doesn't quite know his own strength and is going to take someone's head off one day. Or a sprinkler head. That would bad. It would kill all nearby equipment, evacuate the building and can't be shut off until the fire brigade turn up in their own good time.

There's also a cattle-pult that flings teeny cows.

I miss the verbal abuse me and B used to fling at each other. Our fighting over who got Captain Jack.

Ooh, you have a Russian! Say здравствуйте to him from me. :P
We have a new Polish worker, which is sad, because i'd love to learn a language where i could practise with a native speaker, but Polish turns out to be so similar to Russian that i'd be sure to get incredibly confused.

That would bad. It would kill all nearby equipment, evacuate the building and can't be shut off until the fire brigade turn up in their own good time.

Bad, yes, but then there's the whole compensatory factor of the firemen going on. Mmmmm, rubber...
redwolf From: redwolf Date: May 18th, 2007 02:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Mmm... Firemen...

How could I have missed that?

We all have our off days. :P

You really need one of these.

Hee. I can play Chitty Chitty Bang Bang already, which my coworker this morning informed me was about blokes in the army getting sex. I think i'll sing it with more gusto now.

Do not destroy my childhood, evil woman! :P Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was one of the first cars I ever fell in love with! ... There's a pattern in my life.

And HEE, Phil sounds so much like Brent it's eerie.
pheral From: pheral Date: May 18th, 2007 02:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
Aw, good old Dick Van Dyke. Love that guy.

That's so cool Brent has the same kind of humour. silliness is such a requirement for me, one of the best ways of getting through life! I'm very lucky to have a workplace where we all say the bizarrest things, and make wierd noices and do Wookie impressions, and no-one bats an eyelid, we all just enjoy it.
vespurrs From: vespurrs Date: May 18th, 2007 10:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yeah, me too. Loved the Dick Van Dyke show with him and Mary Tyler Moore.

:) He does! LOL, you'd like him muchly, then. And I have to laugh because whenever Brent and his best friend Tom get together, they do Jabba the Hutt impressions! *giggles*

I love your office, I think I need a job there :)
pheral From: pheral Date: May 18th, 2007 06:08 pm (UTC) (Link)
I must admit, it's a pretty hilarious place to be sometimes! Now my job is much better, and the stress isn't nearly as bad, i'm really able to enjoy having such mental coworkers. :P

Your co-workers sound awesome and much fun! Work is sooooo much better when you can 'play' with those you work with and at least attempt to keep things light.
pheral From: pheral Date: May 19th, 2007 04:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
It really is, it's so much easier to work all day when you take little breaks to really laugh your butt off. And sometimes i'm seriously bent over double laughing so hard, it's wonderful when that happens, lol!
knights_13 From: knights_13 Date: May 24th, 2007 12:19 am (UTC) (Link)
That is very cool. =D Is one of them your boss? If not, what does your boss say?
pheral From: pheral Date: August 11th, 2007 05:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
Nigel is the boss, how cool is that?? Lol. He's more of a mate than a boss, with unfortunately comes with its own set of problems in the workplace, but hey, it's always fun when he starts off the joking, everyone joins in, and it ends up with me laughing so hard my stomach hurts. :P
