yes, cupcake, muffin, maybe even peanut.
Ooooh, yeah, peanut, I like that one. Does anyone ever watch that show "Dead Like Me"? One of the characters in that show always calls people 'peanut' - tres amusant!
Speaking of office place no nos, I got this email yesterday:"hey girl would you please care for the fellow workers and shave your under arm or do not wear sleeve less blouses ok??"Um - I'm wearing tanktops EVERYDAY from now on and have stopped shaving my legs and wearing deodorant. And my supervisor says I should slap her. Sent from an anonymous yahoo account to my unicef email. (Imagine my response...nobody calls me girl)
meredith: WHAT??!! holy shit! that's appalling! oh yeah! tanktops every day! it's an armpit-hair party! (do you think you know who the person is who sent it?)
I'm 100% with you, you should wear tank tops every day. If you run out I'm sure your friends in NYC would have some to lend you just to keep the campaign going. I think you should now make tank tops your thing, like hats, get sparkly ones, colourful ones, formal ones... Where does this person get off telling you that? If the weight of the whole prepubescent beauty thing in society doesn't convince you to shave your pits, some stupid childish anonymous email sure as heck isn't. Perhaps you could get others in the office to participate. If they don't have sufficient armpit hair now, you might consider armpit toupees.If you have a job that not only allows tanktops, but also exposed armpit hair, who is this person to rain on your parade!
Actually, there was an interesting article in the Globe yesterday about tattoos in the workplace and how employers are considering them less and less of a NO NO because more and more people have them and they don't want to loose out on hiring good people just because they have tattoos that show.
We made Barbara wear an armpit wig for Maggie's play - I'm sure I could make another. Day of the armpit may be near.No idea who it was, but I hope she stops by soon for a chat.
if i worked in your office, i would totally join in some unshaven armpit solidarity. yeah, i hope this person stops by for a chat also.
I'm almost more shocked at the fact that she bloody called you "girl." blargh!
Jane, I love that "blarg!" it conveys your meaning so perfectly! I think you may have invented a new word.Meredith, I can't wear tank tops to the office, but I'm wearing a shirt today with really short sleeves, and I've got a good stubble going. In solidarity.
