Why I'll never be Employee of the Month. By Stephanie, age 34

It's no secret that I really love working, or at least the associated paychecks. So today, just because I care (and also because I have a really cool new camera), I thought I'd show you around where I live.

Here's my phone, which I spend entirely too much time on:

Yes, that says what you think it says. And yes, it sits right on my desk. Don't hate.


Here is part of my current collection of soda cans. Because I don't drink coffee and have to stay awake. 4:30am is EARLY. The green thing is my "Bubba Keg" which is what I drink my water from. Incidentally, if you carry a Bubba Keg into the breakroom and stand anywhere NEAR the coffee pot? A bunch of men get their panties into a big wad and tell you not to drink all the coffee. To which you should reply, "The sticky side of the pad goes DOWN, sir." Yes you should.


I believe this is the only threatening sign I have currently.


My son's fabulous artwork and my "What Would a Unicorn do?" spinner which I use to make all important decision. (Actually? It's taped down to "Impale evil things" so that the decision I always make. It works for me.)


I forget the story about this little man, but he hangs on the side of the wall that separates me and my co-worker so I'm pretty sure she had something to do with it. I do know for sure that one of my co-workers put that little green leaf there to cover Mr. Man's non-existent peen. They are such prudes.


The heart of my whole operation. Granola type bars, Diet Pepsi, my mouse, my scissors and various pens. What more does a girl need?


And finally, me and one of my beautiful co-workers who for some reason took a cue from both my children while taking this photo. She's still way cuter than me even with her tongue out.




Don't you wish you worked with me?

I wanna work with you too!! Can I work with you? I know it'd be a long long impossibly long drive. Maybe you can take a closer pic of the WWUD because I wanna see all those options. Sounds hilarious!

Also, the headband, Steph's awesome hair, you do it well.

Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're using?

I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time
selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
and I'm looking for something unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
