Hot Damn!

As I was quietly working at my desk, doing my best to keep out of trouble...I was asked politely to come into my boss' office. Immediately I jumped to the conclusion that I was in deep trouble, only to be confirmed of this by him asking me to sit down and closing the door.....but then he proceeded to tell me that because one of our other ladies is leaving they want me to move into her position. In fact that department had a vote and the voted me as the one they want.....how very flattering I thought.

So it turns out I wasn't in trouble at all, I got a promotion and a raise....

Afterwards I took care of the monstruous heap of laundry and ate a yummy home cooked dinner, took a trip to my very favourite store (Ikea of course) and had some nice hot cocoa and listened to old christmas records (that's right - records baby!) with my good buddies Miss KQ and Miss CK - a nice day indeed.

The words "Hot Damn" are to be followed by "a day off" as per Bender on Futurama. If you are going to steal his quote, you must quote him correctly. It does not matter if (as here) those comments are not relevent. It is mandatory. Another Bender quote that is usually not relevent, but usually funny, is "Cheese it!".

Please govern your behaviour appropriately.

Congrats Chica! I just got (another) new job too, I'm now a marking assistant! Things are looking good for the two of us! Also, Rob and I, well, mostly me, would like to propose a Christmas movie 'party' in the coming weeks.

Is b bowmen? I'm just curious who's writing miscellaneous comments about Futurama (which isn't even a great show) instead of congratulating someone on a promotion...

I'm just kidding (well not really, because I still do want to know who b is) but I usually skip over the entire point of a post and point something annoying out and people are like "WE GET IT" instead of "thanks for a nice comment" as well.

I will stop there.

It is indeed, but that is "our" thing we teasse each other about ridiculous shows and funny things to say - it' meant to be a personal thing I guess....

However, I do like Futurama, the aforementioned Bender is wickedly awesome as is Dr.Zoidberg, the professor and of course Fry...tell them I hate them....did you get that one B?

Cheese it!!!!!!

Lulu said...

Thanks for all the congrats messages -
rae - god job on the new job, we will certainly have another party...
oh, and B did congratulate me, several times. In fact I just printed out a lovely and funny email message with just that in it...
