T.G.I.F!

Once a week, I like to blog about trivia and just general goofy stuff…mainly because I like to laugh and have fun at work. I am very fond of useless trivia. I’m one of those annoying people who do fairly well watching Jeopardy, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and all those other trivia shows. I’ve won…

Whiteboard Art, Who Knew?

As anyone who reads this blog knows, I like art made from office supplies. I like traditional art as well, but that’s for another blog.  I’ve blogged numerous times about art and office supplies, but it’s just such a fun subject! Maybe it’s just my lack of drawing capability (I can craft and photograph, I…

Graffiti – Art or Nuisance? Discuss!

It’s an all too common sight here is South Florida- overpasses and train cars and snails…anything stationary or near-stationary can (and most likely will) be covered in graffiti. Some of it is pretty, some of it is downright scary, but almost all of the places you find it want it removed. There are heavy duty…

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and all across the country, the color pink is cropping up, like spring in fall. Warriors in Pink are rolling out their campaigns, along with Susan G Komen and many other breast cancer charities. Proceeds from breast cancer awareness products are going toward the fight to eliminate this…

Energy Drinks – A Love Story

Red Bull. Monster. Rockstar. 5-Hour Energy. You know all these names, and probably many more. For some of us, they are our morning pick-me-up. Or afternoon and evening pick-me-up-off-the-floor. They have become as ordinary as a bottle of soda in a convenience store cold case, and are a large part of our everyday lives. I…

Happy Fall Ya’ll!!

Well, a day early anyway, but since I’m not here on Saturday’s and Sunday’s to write this wonderful blog, I figured its better early than late. And since this is my absolute favorite time of the year, I thought, Hey! What a great blog to write! There is just something perfect about autumn. In September,…

Workplace Procrastination

I am procrastinating a little as I write this. I stare at the computer screen, willing the words to come to me. Then I get distracted by an inconsequential email, and I answer it for a bit of satisfaction that I’ve done something productive today. I have to admit, my brain isn’t fully focused on…

Wednesday – The Most Misspelled Day of the Week

Ah, Wednesday, that glorious hump day, the unit of measure that we gauge our work week by. You know when you get through Wednesday you’re almost done with the work week. Unless you work Saturdays and Sundays too. Which is no fun, I can tell you. I’ve been there. Next to Friday, Wednesday is our…

You Got to Move It, Move It!

I am no fan of exercise. I LOVE physical activity – hiking, walking, gardening, horseback riding, swimming, etc but actual organized exercise…no, not a fan. I was an active child, with ballet, gymnastics, and softball making up the bulk of my activities (until I found horses, then that was all she wrote) and that translated…

Gearing Up For Fall!

Most of the country is starting to feel a crisp change in the air (except for where I live, but even I happened to notice a slight drop in the humidity the other night) and the body, if not the mind, can tell that autumn is on the way. Ah Fall, my favorite time of…

Party Time!

We are a fun office. I mean that sincerely. This has got to be one of the most fun places I’ve ever worked for. We laugh, and go out, and have parties, and celebrate milestones together. We take care of our own. Once a month, we gather together and celebrate anniversaries and birthdays. We have…

A Day Worth Celebrating!

Chocoholics everywhere, rejoice! Today is OUR day, a day to celebrate that which we crave and love – chocolate. Yes, today is International Chocolate Day, a day of celebration for chocolate lovers everywhere. Most of us chocolate connoisseurs will take chocolate however we can get it, whether it’s in liquid or solid form.  Some prefer…
