OMG y'all.

So things at work? Are happening.

I haven't talked much about it, because, well, I don't know. I talk a lot about everything usually, but I haven't mentioned this because I was trying to wait and see how it would all pan out. I don't have a lot of hope in general and I try to keep the small amount of hope I do have under wraps, so deeply do I fear it getting trampled.

I also met a nice new person.

Yesterday we talked more and I said something insane. I don't have a clue what it was, as I say a lot of insane things. And she said,

"You are so funny. You remind me of this blogger I like to read."

So I perked up. Because, you know, I'm totally obsessed with my blog and the blogs of everyone I read and no one here seems to even know what a blog is so I can't talk about it all the time because they all just look at me like I'm a big stupidhead.

THEN she said,

"You kind of look like her too."

So. Interesting.

I said, "What's the name of the blog?"

And she said,

"Perez Hilton"

NO. Just lying. She said, "Jason something...I can't remember."

And I said, "Jason. For the love of God?"

She smiled and said, "Yes! Do you read that?"

And I said, "Nope. I hate that bitch."



Maybe she'll read today.

Obviously, this just goes to show you how huge you are! And, congrats on the new job. You didn't say, but does this come with more money?

I am Trish Marie said...

Yay for the new job position! You must be so happy. Just think back to a few months ago, to how desperately you wanted a change. Now you have it!

And? That is freakin' hysterical about being recognized. I think that makes you a celebrity.

"Happy Dance" "Happy Dance" !! It is about time something good happened for you at work. This rocks and the "kids" that are going to work for you...that rocks too. Let us know what the girl says when she figures out that this is your blog!! Congrats my friend and God Bless!

Congrats on the new job!!! So freakin' happy for you.

Good thing you don't post about work or you'd be losing material what with your new employee being a fan and all.

DND said...

Congrats on the new job. You sound so happy.

Chelle said...

And congrats on the new job. I'm so happy for you - you deserve so much better than the shouting and shite you put up with there now.

Angie said...

In town? Like . . . we can meet for lunch sometime? Because, I make my way TO TOWN on many occasions.

And, that. . .the girl working with you. . .is absolutely HILARIOUS and WONDERFUL all at the same time!

Tiger Lamb Girl said...

OH OH! And congratulations on the job move!!!! xo

and p.s. to the typist; the girl flavoured one - yeh - you: Be really nice to my friend. Or I'll have to hop a plane across the pond and kick yer pretty little ass. Then we can all go out for drinks and laugh about it.

Christie said...

Oh, THAT is classic! I hope she reads today! That would be awesome!

And yay for getting paid to write, even if it's not the fun kind. Same here. But hey, it's a start, right?

Fine For Now said...

Christie said...

congrats on getting out of that man-hellhole, lol

J said...

YAY Chickee!! What a small world! I cant wait to hear what she says.

How much closer is this to you? Does it help with the commute? Is it more money? I am so happy for you!

frannie said...

Dawn~a~Bon said...

That? Is classic! I'm really happy for you and glad that this job switch is happening!

Oh, hey, girl-flavored typist? I have to warn you - I used to share an office with That Chick and you'll go home with your sides hurting because she's quite possibly funnier in person. If you can believe that!

Kimberly said...

I freaked my family out this morning by shouting out happily when I read this post. I'm so thrilled for you!!

And the fact that you've been proven famous is pretty dang spiffy too!

Sabrina said...

Congrats on the new job!!!

That's funny re: new typist. Reminds me of the time my best friend went up to the woman who my boyfriend cheated on me with and asked if she knew me...

Oh..nevermind, that wasn't a good story :P

Bunny said...

Wow! See? you ARE kind of a big deal on the internet LOL!

emily said...

Dude!?! That so totally rocks. I will have to stalk the comments to see the girl flavored one stops in for a chat...

Congrats! I am glad good things are coming your way, you deserve it.

Sarcasta-Mom said...

Great news for you! I knew it was only a matter of time before the good started rolling in :)

And how funny that your new employee is a fan. Too weird. Just goes to show everyone loves you :)

J said...

such good things for you!!

Birth Sister Doula Services said...

B U S T E D ! ! !

Guess she'll know it's you after she reads the latest entry!

Congrats on the promotion. Rule like the Queen you are!

Priscilla said...

Oh that is rich!

Hilarious!

And congrats. You so deserve it!

Kellie said...

WOOT! for the new job!! Good for you!!

And, really? She reads your blog?! Holy crapballs...only you. Only you would this happen to :)

Did I say: WOOT! for the new job?!

Yes? Okay. Just making sure.

B&K said...

Yayyy for you because no one deserves to live in the glass-ceilinged man-hellhole you work in now.

But you know what? When she finds out that you are her new boss? You are really going to have to seriously edit what you say about work in your blog. Take it from a longtime HR person -- your subordinates will be reading your blog. Anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law. Not to rain on your parade or anything? But it's true. For reals.

Jenski said...

Well, it is a good thing you like her! Another big CONGRATULATIONS on the new job. VERY exciting.

Kim said...

Woot! Woot!

Alpha Dude 1.5 said...

Awesome!

You Rock!

And other cool stuff I can't think of to say right now.

Chick, you are the coolest!

Many huge blessings to you !!!!

Kelly M said...

YEAH!! CONGRATULATIONS!! That is totally awesome!! As for the girl reading the blog..did she really say that?? Because if she did..that is so funny!! And if she does then you two will work out perfectly!!

Again, congratulations on a JOB WELL DONE!!! I'm so happy for you!!!!!!!!!

EE said...

OMG...totally priceless!!!
Congrats Chick!!!!

Tilly said...

Well that's some good news at last! Congratulations - hope you have a smooth transition, I'm sure you'll be the cats pyjamas.

Really happy for you chick.

Good luck.

Amy W said...

You are famous!!

I have some things happening at work too....

queenrandom said...

Hilarious.

Have fun at the new job! You'll rock it.

Catwoman said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Oh, I'm so happy for you! You deserve this and it's been a long-time coming! You should totally moon all the morons on your way out of the old building. Evil people that they are.

And too funny that new girl reads you! HA!

CPA Mom said...

I am VERY happy about your new job situation. WHoot!!!!

But I do have to agree with B&K above. It freaks me out that your employee will read here. Of course, I've been in HR, I know a LOT of horror stories.

Julie said...

Horray on the new job! It sounds fabulous and you SO deserve something fabulous to happen!

That's crazy she recognized you!

Emma in Canada said...

Congratulations on the job, it sounds fantastic!

And how freaking funny that she reads you! I wonder if she just lurks or has she commented?

J said...

She seriously needs to comment. Like, now.

B&K said...

Thanks, CPA Mom. I, too, have horror HR stories. Maybe we need to start a HR horror story blog. The icon can be the screaming Janet Leigh pic from your profile! We can call the blog "The Psycho Employee . . . where names have been changed to protect the HR person." ROFL

I crack myself up sometimes! LOL

Tara said...

bwahahahahaha

Blue Momma said...

It's about time for something positive to happen for you at work! Yea you!!!!

It is so funny that you said you hate that bitch. Ha She really does HAVE to comment. Love it.

PaintedPromise said...

Joy T. said...

Big congratulations going out to you!!

Shan said...

SJ said...

Congrats on the job deal! And really, did that happen?


I would have died. And well since it's been days since this was posted (I'm behind, shoot me!)....did she read?

velocibadgergirl said...

You, my friend, are the woot shizzle. But you knew that.

Rachel said...
