So, at work we have these giant stuffed frogs that go with some of our books (I work in educational publishing for kids). One day, last month, my boss was unpacking a frog and popped him on the edge of my cubicle:
Then, it seemed like every few days, he was getting closer. My boss said I was imagining it, so I started to take photo documentation:
This has been happening for three weeks now:
By last Friday things were getting ominous:
My boss worked late Friday, but the rest of us left at 4 in honor of the holiday weekend. When I came in this morning:
On Memorial Day, I ran in Huntsville's Cotton Row Run 5K for the first time in five years. Last time I ran it in ~38 minutes, and manged to beat that by five minutes this year, coming in at 33m 0s! Immediately afterwards, I had to run to go play with the Huntsville Concert Band for a Memorial Day ceremony in a local cemetery.
Nearing the finish, on the left in gray:
With my mom after the race:
Color guard, all with different era uniforms:
I used to play WoW. Roleplayed mostly. This is Roéd, my cray cray belf warlock.
I also used to make jewelry! Never took a lot of pics of what I made though. But here's a pin I made. It's a self designed aka fake "sølje" that's worn with the traditional norwegian bunad.
And here's a ring I made.
If I ever get my own workshop I will make some Trek stuff for sure.
Edit: LOVE THAT FROG THING
Pity he wasn't shown playing Frogger at the time.
^Nah, Frogger would have been too obvious. He looks more like a Space Invaders type.
At the very least, give him a can of BUD. WEIS. ER.
Sounds like you have an awesome boss! I keep expecting him to move in the last pic though.
TSQ, I love the frog and someone's sense of humor.
I'm waiting for the feature film version, which will of course be produced by...
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."
tsq, if the frog starts singing the Michigan Rag, RUN!
Wait, I just noticed: I only see four TARDIS'. Not enough, I know you can do better!
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!
^That is a good idea! And yeah, my boss is pretty fab. He is also a Trekkie.
As for the TARDISes...I was also wearing a TARDIS earring today, so that makes 5.
Giant plush frog is best frog.
*Checks the Whovian rule book* Yep, ear rings pushes it over. It's allowed
