Oh, Dear God.

I was just chatting to one of the office IT/programmer guys about the Google page today (the tribute to Jules Verne) We were both commenting how interesting it was, with being able to go up and down, and see the divers all the way at the bottom.

Our head graphics guy sits beside me - he's 22, just a few months older than my eldest daughter - this freaks me out every time I really think about it - he asks, "Who's Jules Verne?"

I stared.

"You did NOT just say that!" I insisted.

He looked a little chagrined, but just shrugged.

"20 Leagues Under the Sea? Around the World in 80 Days? No way, how can you not know this? He's the father - no, the grandfather - of modern Science Fiction!"

From the office just down the hall, our Development director shouts out, "It's not that he doesn't know anything, Shad! it just means that we're old. WE'RE OLD!"

My stunningly hilarious reply?

"SHUT UP, RICHARD!"

To cap it off, my boss has to get in his two cents. Here's the set up; last night, before he left, he was chatting with graphics guy about going to his parents for dinner, and joked that he got home cooked meals every night. Graphics guy said that he went out a lot these days, and they started talking about his girlfriend. Sounded like it was serious, they've been dating for about a year.

I said, "Sounds like it's time to get married!"

They both looked at me like I was nuts, and then my boss says, "Just don't get her pregnant."

I glared. "DAVE!"

He laughed. "What?"

"Shut up."

He laughed again. "Right, you have a daughter-"

"Stop. Talking. Now."


I tell you seriously - sometimes that man is *very* lucky I like him.


So, after I told Richard to shut up, my boss quips in - "Better not say anything about her daughter!"

Me: 0
Office: 2

I don't know how or when, but there will be payback. And it will be epic.

Richard may be old, but you're not. You're young and hip and very well read. ;)

Uh....well I *shifty eyes* might have a line on screaming monkeys for you if you want. I'll even deliver them. *nods* (My dad sold the screaming monkeys for six months or so and we have roughly 7 bajillion left over. We also have this monkey that is motion activated and rolls around laughing when set off).

Might help in the revenge plan....

You're lucky. My office is blaming me for the plague that is going around the office.

You are so lucky, Ms Shaddyr.

And things are looking as if I may be in a similar office set-up. Early days still...
