09:19 am - The like me! They really like me!
They like me so much that they decorated my cubicle for my birthday. Granted that they hung up the banner that says "Baby Shower," along with all of the decorations for Easter, Independance Day, and St. Patrick's Day, but the point is that they decorated.

Apparently after I signed my own card the other day, my boss decided to tape a quarter to the inside and write "Happiness is a penny per year!" Somebody else taped 25 more pennies to the envelope, and wrote "Wow! Half a century old! You must be falling apart!", and other people followed suit with the "Happy 50th" messages.

I sent out an e-mail thanking everyone for the card and the money. I ended it with "Now I can finally afford most of that Pepsi I've been saving up for," since our soda machines charge $0.55. Another one of my coworkers came by and gave me a nickel. This is the woman who makes a point of stopping by my desk to say "Au revoir, Colin! I hope you find your bike!" every night when she leaves.

Oh, and the AEG baked a chocolate cake. It's been sitting uncut since she came in more than two hours ago, and I think people are waiting for me to have the first piece. I'd love to make them wait until 4:30, but I know people are more assertive than that. I'd bet money that it gets cut by 10:00, even if I try to hold out longer.

I still hate it when people fuss over my birthday at work, but they haven't rigged anything to spill when I open my overhead cabinets, or pop out when I open my desk drawers, and nothing's missing (as far as I can tell), which is a good thing.

Thank you! Hey, I keep forgetting to post a comment about it in your journal, but I'm crossing my fingers and hoping you get that job in Evansville.

I still haven't heard anything. I think I'm making myself sick over it...

That does it! I want to work there too.

Have a great day, Colin. And don't let the Shoggoth eat you.

Hey, thanks! The shoggoth behaved for the most part, but I think I'm gonna have to train him to attack certain people. Door-to-door salesmen, annoying people at work, the lady who lives across the street and occasionally calls our landlord to complain about us... You get the idea.
Garmonbozia for the soul.
