Love Mr. Froggy.

You should reposition the frog so it looks like he's climbing out the other side of the cubicle. If your boss mentions it, say, "Oh, really? I hadn't noticed."
Yes!

A supervisor once stuck a silly photo high on the wall on my side of the office, where I didn't notice it for quite a while. Had to climb up on my desk to get it down. Of course, I then put it somewhere not very noticeable in his side. We went back and forth several times over the next few months, and then I forgot about it. At least a year later, I was promoted. When I took a framed poster off the wall to move it to my new office, I discovered the photo on the back!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

What kind of public reception are the new Dutch royals getting? Are the younger generations over there more jaded and dismissive of a royal family or is there still a rush of patriotism and passion during events such as this?

Yep. My last year at a first year charter school for emotionally disturbed K-2 in the South Bronx pushed me over the edge (for obvious reasons). I could have managed another year or two, but more than that and I'd have burnt out. Kids deserve better than that, and it wasn't satisfying me anymore anyway. Right now I'm doing research, writing, and editing for an educational publishing house (mostly in science and math), and studying for my exams so that I can go to grad school.

I can't drink tea out of a blue mug, for psychological reasons.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

^Blue is good for cocoa, though. Mugs are the one thing that I sort of have a collection of Well, other than books. And clothes. But those don't count. I really dislike useless things so I don't collect statues or toys or nicknacks, but mugs are useful! The best mug for tea is my Paddington Bear mug. I actually think that Who set would make really cute plant pots!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Yes cocoa would be fine, I do not object to that. Blue mugs make tea look weak though, which in turn makes it taste weak, and there's nothing worse than a weak cup of tea.

I collect one mug from each skiing resort I visit. It's really the only thing I make a point of doing collecting-wise now. Most of them are stuck together with glue and therefore undrinkable from now though, as I insist on actually using them, which is probably contraindicated for a mug collection.
