A short dedication, and some Viral Marketing

Sdtrk: ‘Sadistic’ by Stereolab

We know a little workplace in the American Southwest, where alert reader Sena toils in the biotech department. She, like many other people, recently viewed ‘Guys and Dolls‘, found it eminently fascinating, and told her coworkers about it. However, instead of the typical torches-and-pitchforks reaction, according to her, Sidore and I are celebrities over there. Don’t believe me? Check out their whiteboards:

That blurry bit in the first pic is the department name, by the way. I particularly like the second pic though, as the artist managed to accurately capture our likenesses to a T. Someone’s done their research!

This post goes out to Sena, Jacob, and the diligent (?) employees at Corporate Workplace That I Obviously Can’t Name, Located in a Rather Large Southwestern State. Stop watching so many videos on das InfoBahn! Go read a book instead!

    You and Sidore have always been a loved and respected celebrities! The fandom is not a suprize, it is the dearth of papparatzi(sp)!

    Though if you ask Ms Spears, she’d tell you papparatzi are highly overrated and unnecessary.

    (Sigh) If only my workplace was so accepting and friendly.

    Mahtek –
    I kinda get the impression that if I were to ask Ms Spears anything, she’d start gibbering and frothing at the mouth. Some people refer to that as her singing! ZING

    Hell, I wish all workplaces were so accepting and friendly. Could you imagine being able to have a lovely framed picture of Phoebe and Penelope at your desk/cubicle/workstation? ‘Your girls are lookin’ pretty good there, Mahtek,’ says a supervisor upon spotting the photo. Or ‘Wow, Everhard, I wish my wife was as sexy as Caroline,’ Or ‘Did you take your Dolls to a professional photographer, Mr Rentell?’ Or ‘Sidore’s only 5’1″? She doesn’t look that short in your picture together!’ Or etc. *sigh* If only. One day, though…

    PB Shelley, I didn’t include you as you don’t have a day job. 😉

    Hyde-chan –
    No whiteboard? Don’t let that stop you!

    LOL! Not one with a supervisor anyway *chuckle* The last job I did have one we didn’t get along. Got along with EVERYONE else but the supervisor was a “climber” and didn’t care for my “don’t care-ing” about her position. I guess she also didn’t care for my Pink Floyd and Kate Bush and “Legalize It!” postcards/stickers beneath my blotter. Being that it was a Court-house type setting and all 😛
    As Popeye once said, “I yam what I yam!” LOL

    btw – our boss doesn’t really care what goes up on our personal white boards. The employees here get along extremely too well. lol. So we often have photoshopped pictures around the offices as well.

    So you’re like a big happy family, only with biohazardous materials? Nice! 🙂
    Good to hear you have an easy-going boss. Those are few and far-between…
