Gettin’ our Stitch Fix. See what I did, there?

My boss, fmr., got her new StitchFix for April. Let's judge! I ran into her office and watched her open her box like it was Xmas morning. X-Files morning. Like a morning with my ex. I was a big fan of this shirt with birds, as I enjoy a bird on anything. Except perhaps on … Continue reading Gettin’ our Stitch Fix. See what I did, there?

How to Have a Migraine: A Step-By-Step Guide

Yesterday morning, after I'd gotten up early and stressed own self over adding polls to this here not-blog (good participation, by the way!), I got an email. "Can you knock this out this morning?" I wasn't even at work yet, and already I was anxious. It's this big, several-tabbed Excel document that I copy edit … Continue reading How to Have a Migraine: A Step-By-Step Guide

June ages, like a fine wine. Or a bottle of ripple you leave out too long.

In a stunning display of self-centeredness, and in preparation for my move to another computer, I looked through the webcam photos I have here and came to the conclusion that my six years with ("with") Ned have aged me. Above, I had talked to Ned online, but not dated him yet. On my way to … Continue reading June ages, like a fine wine. Or a bottle of ripple you leave out too long.

Drivin’ all the old men crazy.

A good part about how they've put me on multiple accounts at work is that I've gotten to know more coworkers who aren't Griff. Also, I've gotten to know people I've worked with all these years, but rarely talked to because we weren't on the same account. It can get (ready?) siloed at work. One … Continue reading Drivin’ all the old men crazy.

The one where June misses Halloween

For years, we've been doing this project at work that is what you might call detailed. If you're a proofreader or a copy editor, all three of you, it has everything that takes time. Names you need to check? Yes. Numbers? Yes. Details that're listed in several places and they all must match? Yes. Fact-checking … Continue reading The one where June misses Halloween

What is wrong with this emu?

It was inevitable, I suppose, that during a pertinent conversation with my friend Hamlet, in which we were extolling Patty and Selma from The Simpsons, that I was struck by HOW MAGNIFICENT it would be to name cats Patty and Selma. It's these epiphanies that make me say, Well, I could just jaunt off to … Continue reading What is wrong with this emu?

Me and you and a dog with Blu

I did many things this weekend, but one thing I did not do was much sleeping. Internet: Why, Joon? Joon: Noneya, Internet. On Friday afternoon, I was toiling at m'desk when the phone rang. "WHAT." I thought, as I am cheerful and elegant about being interrupted when in a flow. It was my doctor's office. … Continue reading Me and you and a dog with Blu

June’s stay-at-home vacation. Annoying morning readers, since Monday.

It's the last day of my expansive vacation, in which I saw many exotic things, such as Chapel Hill. It's true; I finally returned those coolers to Chapel Hill. If you're just tuning in, and why do I keep saying that? No one is just now tuning in. Anyway, let's say you just tuned in, … Continue reading June’s stay-at-home vacation.
