Three observations from my day
1. My temporary desk at work is upstairs with the uber-techie types. You know the types I mean. The ones who still wear their phones on a belt clip? Yeah, those guys. Since the nerds and I are sequestered from most of the office, there are very few women who use the ladies' restroom until around 4:00 PM when more of the call center workers show up. One of the nice things about being one of the few who uses this bathroom, is that most days when I enter a stall, the toilet seat is still up from when it was cleaned the night before. It makes me think of John Cage from Ally McBeal when he'd say "I like a fresh bowl." Today, I realized that since this fresh bowlness brings me a modicum of workplace joy, I really should pass that workplace joy along to others. So when I was done, I put the toilet seat back up so whoever used it next would think that she, too, had a fresh bowl. It's the little things, people.
3. As you may have guessed from the blog title, I'm watching the Golden Girls. They've become my 11:00 PM staple ever since Nick At Nite decided they were too cool to keep showing Friends at 11:00 PM. Personally, I feel a little insulted by that move. I feel like Nickelodeon was saying "Okay, Gen X-ers, you're old! No more Friends re-runs for you! GO TO BED, YOU'RE OLD!" So yeah, Golden Girls it is, which is fine with me because I love the Girls, and I'm convinced that one of my other favorites, Sex & the City, would never have come to be had it not been for Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, & Sophia. So anyway, when the opening credits came on, it made me think of back in college I had a friend who had many beverages one night and told a few of us that we were her Bea Arthurs. I asked what that meant, and she said "oh you know, Bea Arthur was on that show that was all 'thank you for bein' my friend...'" so from then on, "Bea Arthur" became a staple of our own lexicon, similar to the way "BFF" or "bestie" is used now. I think I may need to bring that one back.
That is three. Good night, duckies.
