Lonely Juliet

So, for weeks, Receptionist has been nagging everyone here at Office of Doom to wear a costume today. I was all excited because, even if nobody listened to her, I would have one non-party-pooper coworker. (I had one last year, who was absolutely brilliant as a wrecked bike messenger, but he has since left.)

Two other people in clerical were going to join her. I had even lent her my black wings and halo from last year, to complement the white angel costume another person was going to wear.

White Angel Person quit yesterday. Receptionist is out sick. And Person Left Holding The Clerical Bag decided it wasn't worth it if she was going to be the only one.

Meh. Shoulda worked from home today after all. And not woken up poor brainiacfive to lace me. (I really must put a zipper in the side of this dress one of these days.)

Am waiting to talk to attorney who has a cheesy four-line MIDI of "Let It Be" as his hold music. Where's Romeo with a happy dagger when you need him? *headdesk*

Bless your heart. I wish you could have come and partied with my work crowd.

Thanks, hon. It's just turning out to be One Of Those Days.

*deep breath*

But I only have to deal with it for a couple more hours (and am mostly through the crises that cropped up and inspired a near-Spanish Princess Moment [viz. the wedding scene in Ever After]), and then into the city for some onstage mayhem. Great therapy, that is. ;->

"attorney who has a cheesy four-line MIDI of "Let It Be" as his hold music"

That's grounds for disbarment, that is.

It certainly erodes the brownie points he earned with the nine pages of cartoons and jokes he faxed me when we first started forwarding to him. Although the mock proposed legislation regulating hunting attorneys racked up some serious credit...
