It's that time of year again

For the attorneys to fatten us up, that is. :-) Case of tangerines from Florida last week, honkin' gift crate (no, I don't mean basket, I mean crate) today from the guys we've used in NYC forever.

Including eight-inch sticks of Harry London 70% cocoa dark chocolate with orange. OMG. This thing is going to take me a week to eat; one bite overloads the taste buds for at least an hour!

We don't get to be the customer very often. This is when it's really good that we do. (NYC guys also include us in a big schmoozy lunch at some fancy downtown restaurant or other every year when they come to Chi for the CLLA convention. BigBossLady has a low schmooze tolerance, so I generally get to go. Two or three hours of mostly random chitchat, fabulous food, and I'm working. Gotta love it.)

If you have more than you can eat, you can send some to me.

*g* There are four sticks -- two orange and two raspberry.

I'll go in the break room and snurch one for you if they're not already gone...

ETA: There was one more raspberry. Email me where to send it. Wiliqueen at gmail.

Oh, the locusts take care of it in pretty short order. (Collectors + free food) < (actors + free food), but still impressive to see in action. ;-D

I too love gift basket season. And not just because we make a shit ton of money sending our product as corporate gifts.

Actually, we're doing ok so far! The warehouse employees are kicking ass and we've managed to escape backorder hell so far. Of course the crazies have reared their unbalanced heads a few times (I swear to god this woman yesterday seriously needed to be medicated and/or smacked good and hard), but I think we're almost through the worst of it!
