Dept. of Management Weasality

Since I'm On My Second Martini

... and somewhat lacking in observational and analytic eloquence I might otherwise bring to the task, I shall only describe the mandatory staff meeting to which I and my colleagues were forced this morning - and the "information" we received thereat - in the GIF form of interpretative dance:

And some kittens, because they make everything just a little better:

You're right, though, GIFs really are kind of like interpretive dance!

Edit: whoops, bad html!

These make me happy - I really need to watch Pacific Rim, because it appeals to my skiffical and anime-ish tendencies, and the kittens, because kittehz!!!!

(Also, how does the Friday and/or Saturday after next (11th or 12th Oct.) look on your schedule, because you totally need to be treated to tea at Jolly Posh. (See? You thought I'd forgotten!))

Ahh, I am sorry, I haven't forgotten, I am just the worst at scheduling! I think one of those might work--maybe Friday, since I don't have class that day.
Sep. 27th, 2013 04:14 am (UTC)
Friday is actually good for me, since I intend to schedule it as an off day, as I have to work the previous Saturday. Perhaps something around 1:30-3:15ish?
Sep. 27th, 2013 04:17 am (UTC)
Yeah, something around that time would be good!
Sep. 27th, 2013 08:51 pm (UTC)
Then let us say 2:30 p.m. on Friday, the 11th of Oct. at 2:30 p.m., at Jolly Posh, 1405 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, IL. I look forward to it!

Excellent! :)

Love that GIF...definitely says a lot. My first reaction when seeing that was -


Then I thought about it...


Course I'm sure all throughout the meeting -


And of course the guy who ran that hooraw...


Lemme guess...this was you -






I'm sorry, lovely lady...

Oh, what wonderful GIFs! (I love the "And then there's this asshole!" And the Nathan Fillion one, of course. Heh.

And here's another one to tell you how I felt at the meeting:

Perfection. That is PERFECT.

'Then there's this asshole' is one of my favs! And Nathan...how can on NOT love Nathan?

Ouch. Well, I suppose...

("It" being you sitting through the meeting, not whatever shit your management is trying to do this time, which I am sure really does not have to be done.)

Too bad you had to be professional about it instead of having the very justified reaction like:

Omigod, these are awesome!!! Especialy the scooting octupus - can I gank it from y'all?

And it's terrible for me to say, but I didn't recognize RDJ at first, not having seen the film, and simply thought "Well, my goodness. What a ... handsome ... woman ...."
Sep. 28th, 2013 03:41 am (UTC)
Gank away! That octopus really is perfectly expressive for a lot of situations. Sadly, as with so many gifs, I have no idea where they originated.

LOL at your RDJ confusion. Yeah, the makeup is rather different from his usual appearance. I really enjoyed that movie, though I understand it is not everybody's thing.

I have definitely been in many, many meetings where that gif would apply.

(Everyone else has gifs. My collection is quite small and chiefly involves David Collings. Have the most appropriate and I can find and the most random (not even involving Mr Collings for a wonder. Everyone needs a stray barometer from time to time...):

I'm enjoying all the gifs. Much needed laugh for me to today....
Sep. 28th, 2013 02:59 am (UTC)
I hope your day was brightened by the gifs, and that your tomorrow needs no gifs to be bright. Hugs.

(And here's an extra gif, just in case you need another smile!)

Thanks Mama K!

I'm off to get my hair cut before heading to the Exhibition opening that precipitated the argument with a colleague (long story, but boils down to not giving me info as the site manager, because she'd talked to the FoH team, and one of my managers, but not me.)

Cos God firbid I might want to know what's planned on site to make sure it runs smoothly. (Esp as someone else involved had complained the site team hadn't helped, but nobody had told me/us what they wanted help with!)

There was frustrated crying at work yesterday. I hate doing that and was apologising to my boss for crying down the phone at him. It was the culmination of a busy, hectic and frustrating two weeks, and the straw that therefore broke the camel's back!

Luckily the two colleague I was about to have a meeting with were lovely and understanding, and reassured me I'm not the only one that has those kindsproblems with this individual!

So, I'm going to get my hair done, turn up (get changed into smart stuff), and let her run it, as she assured me it was all sorted.... If they've forgotten something, or it's not sorted, then it's her problem.

The only thing I'll step in for is fire-safety related things - I'll put my foot down when we reach capacity.

I have new glee ready to watch when I come home, and there'll be another ep of Strictly Come Dancing too, and I may have planned to get a takeaway, so coping strategies are in place already

Oh, my dear, what a rotten way to go into an exhibition; floor fights with work colleagues are always so upsetting because they always make us feel as if we've done something wrong, even when we know it wasn't our fault. I am very glad to hear that things steadied out for you. Hope the telly and takeaway restorative worked well (what did you eventually decide on in terms of takeaway, she asked nosily.)
Sep. 28th, 2013 05:37 pm (UTC)
Meh, it was ok.

She managed to thank everyone but me, which was charming (didn't want an individual acknowledgement or anthing, but considering she made a point of saying thank you to 'C.... who was the site manager, and the Museums Assistants' and various other named individuals I was bit taken aback.

I'm hoping it was her being oblivious, not a diliberate snub... Bah humbug. I then I felt annoyed with myself for feeling a bit upset by it. (Stupidly, it was our Business Assistant, who was in to help serve drinks saying 'Well, I'll say thank you Heather' to me quietly later that may me a little glassy-eyed...)

I chickened out of dealing with her cramming more chairs/people into downstairs (even though both FoH had told her of the concerns), as pretty sure it'd have turned into an arguement. Told C about it when she arrived, and ask her to handle it, as I felt it would be less likely to cause a scene.

I have come home, watched Glee, ate Chinese (Chicken & Cashew nuts with noodles) and I'm going to watch SCD in half an hour and put stupid petty co-worker out my brain. There may be wine cracked open...
Sep. 28th, 2013 02:57 am (UTC)

Thank you for both of these - and have a random one in return:
