I like when Wednesday masquerades as Monday

The give-gifts-to-the-receptionist season has begun! Today I have received an angel Christmas ornament, an extremely strong-smelling candle, two tins of cookies, and a gift card for Starbucks. It's terribly selfish of me, but I'm glad that my job switch isn't until the New Year. These are the best few weeks to be the one person in the office that everyone knows and needs.

It's also gratifying to arrive back at work after a couple of days off, and upon informing people that I had no real reason for it other than desiring some time away, have the standard answer be "Well, you certainly deserve it."

I agree with them. So much so, in fact, that I'll be doing the same thing next week. Only this time the long weekend will have the added joy of an elf_owl.

The office's holiday potluck was today. So much food. And the conference room with all of the desserts is right down the hall- just within the distance that I can safely stray from my desk and still hear the telephone. This can only lead to excessive amounts of chocolate consumed by Joanna in the course of the afternoon. 'Tis the season.

ETA: Another candle, a little stuffed reindeer, some hand lotion, and a bottle of wine.
