Had my Performance Review at work today--a six-month interval because of my promotion in the spring. Not that anything was really new to me, because my boss made me write it myself. Should find out in a little while what my raise is.

     My coworkers have been pretty excitable this week. We recently installed an in/out board (in preparation for the move, among other things). Of course we're all having a hard time remembering to use it. So this afternoon when I came back from getting something, I casually glanced at it to make sure everyone had remembered to check themselves back in after lunch. Then I saw that Corey's marker was in the 'out' position...and written in the notes column: "out pooping." I step over and saw that he was sitting at his desk, then incredulously ask him about the message. He jumps right up and goes over there to erase it--it was Kyle that had written it, not him! I think I spent the next five minutes trying to stifle my snickering. (Good thing my boss hadn't come over!)

     Ah well, makes for a diversion. Yesterday Corey and Kyle were tormenting Dawn all afternoon with photocopies of bugs (Nancy started it as vengeance for Dawn lying to her.) The funniest part (aside from her jumping and screeching every time she found a new one somewhere) was the way she picked each one up with a large tissue to deposit in the waste basket, like it was a real bug!

*giggles nonstop at "out pooping"* Oh god, that's funny! Sounds like you have an amusing group of coworkers. ^_^

O_O Wow. And that's quite a bug phobia! Once, one of my mother's friends was over--this was years ago, around Halloween. This friend had a phobia of spiders. So, while she wasn't looking, I managed to plant one of the plastic spiders that come out during that time of year for Halloween decorations on the top of her pop can. Without looking, she reaches over to pick up the pop can while still talking with my mother, then, right as she had it near her mouth, she finally looked down at her can to see this huge black "spider" sitting on it. I couldn't stop laughing, even as I cleaned the pop out of the carpet. ^_^

They've been on a roll this week!

Ack, poor lady! I probably would've flinched too, thinking it was real. I wonder how high she jumped. ;) But that's why we won't do something like that with Dawn--she gets so rattled over a mere photocopy, something more 'real' might do her in completely. =P

Poor Dawn that is pretty extreme. Enjoy the cool weather. SD

They certainly were, though Friday was quiet because Dawn and Kathy were both off.

I'm planning on it!
