Today is, it seems, "Administrative Professionals Day". This is a tradition carried down from days of old, when the early Christians would honor their Office Assistants and Receptionists with muffins and flowers and greeting cards featuring watercolor representations of rainbows.

OK, this is not entirely true. You might go so far as to say that it was a complete fiction. Aside from the part where I said that today is Administrative Professionals Day. This is in fact a tradition carried down from the formerly instituted (by greeting-card companies and florists) "Secretaries Day", which is no longer considered Correct or, perhaps, inclusive enough.

I, being an Administrative Professional (joy of joys! my life goal is reached!), am among those honored today. And despite what I said before, I have received no flowers or muffins, and my card features a watercolor butterfly instead of a rainbow. I have also been given a $40 gift card to Target. This is indeed wealth beyond my dreams, so maybe I shouldn't scoff at the "holiday".

Open Mic at Perk last night, as it was Tuesday. Quesadillas and veggies (Doom Veggies!) and people and music and good things. There was a demon (or a lemon), a shirt urging all to "Act like you know", a song that Dan should definitely write about Sharif's jacket, Iron Chef fanfiction, and twirly spoons. I braided Erica's hair- one braid only, a sort of preliminary test for this Saturday's seven hundred thousand braids.

Speaking of the weekend, I need to figure out a plan for Friday's movie-going. More to come.

I disagree. Dan should definitely NOT write a song about my jacket. I definitely do NOT support a policy that encourages Dan to have any kind of relationship and/or interactions with my jacket.

But maybe if he writes the song, that will get the compulsion for real action out of his system . . . singing about it will mean that he doesn't actually have to do it!

Maybe.

our administrative assistant is NOT at her desk. my office is between the front door and her desk. the front door is a giant iron gate, and in order for ANY non-employees to get in, they must be buzzed in. this means if there's anyone at the door, *I* am closest, so *I* get to answer it.

she also likes to leave her radio on, JUST out of tune so it's fuzzy, and she sings, loudly.

don't get me started on freecell.

i'll celebrate you instead. :)

Awesome. I accept your celebration!

You know what you should do? You should answer my "poll" from the other day, so that I will have your email address and you can be invited to my housewarming party. If, you know, you want to.
