Sugar & Spice
Our office is all women right now. The men are off for bracket-angst viewership. So this is what its like to work in an all female office. I like it. So far, we've had breakfast--which was really brunch with the traditional breakfast food and freshly squeezed orange juice. I want everything freshly squeezed from now on. It arrived at noon; the delivery man was late. It was supposed to be breakfast and he got to meet an angry hungry editor who told him how to use a cell phone when you are lost. I'd pay to see that again. From that mistake the bakery sent over dessert trays. Free brunch and dessert. You can hear giggles. My (office) twin came to my desk three times with websites that carried long white skirts for my shopping pleasure. Yeah, I'm still on that. I have an (office) twin. We are the same. Everyone says so, so I thought I'd join in and stop fighting the majority. Except, she is white and pregnant with her second child in under a year of the first born's birth. We do both share a love for salacious celeb gossip, girl crushes on Leah Remini--even though she met Remini while interning at ET: Entertainment Tonight (uhm hmm), she's catholic and her husband is Jewish--Ok Incredible is Catholic but once upon a time I only had Jew Fever, we have the same style and sport the exact same clothes some days, and we are the funniest/wittiest people in the office. I agree but that whole ET stint makes her my arch nemesis. With the men gone (office) twin also bought some fresh flowers for the office today. All our TVs are set on soap operas, guess we'll huddle around to watch Oprah later. Read the sarcasm: Oprah. Tomorrow (office) twin is bringing her baby in for the day. Yah! Our top boss is a man so she'll get away with it. Especially since all the other women here have such baby envy. You just need to mention uterus and they all go "aww" in unison. No men is kind of nice. Maybe tomorrow we'll knit and braid each other's hair. Someone mentioned having an afternoon snack brought in...maybe a high English tea so we can do this women bonding properly.
