Cutie Murder


I don't know what everyone else's work situation is, but I sit at a computer for 8-10 hours straight. I eat breakfast, lunch, and my afternoon snack at my desk. Basically, I get up to go to the bathroom and that's it. There are no offices to wander around to, no water cooler to gab around. It's boring. Usually, we can sit around and talk while we work, or check the internet for news, but at this new job (which is over soon - yay!) we aren't allowed to talk above a whisper, we can't use our phones, and there is no internet access. So what do a bunch of lawyers stuffed in a room do? We create Law & Order: Produce Division, where the first murder victim was a cutie that got shanked with part of a key that we flattened on the train tracks out back. ha!

What I Wore While Stabbing a Cutie:

I love the belt and those jeans are really slimming!

Don't you hate offices that don't let you talk to your co-workers?

You poor thing!!! Sounds like a library without technology. I wouldn't survive a minute!! Maybe you could pass notes? Do you have paper?

But, you look great!!

Tina said...

EvaNadine - Thanks! Scarves really do make great belts.

gina - thanks! Red always makes me feel powerful.

sewingstacy - hehe. We had a good laugh while making the murder scene, esp the "blood." LOL

Sheila - thanks! You can tell we were bored, b/c it was the high point of the day to murder a tiny orange.

vintage13 - seriously! It's like being in kindergarden.

Erin - oh no kidding. You have never seen so much furtive blackberry use in your life!

Kasmira - I was thinking of you when I bought it and it is totally accompanying the gold necklace I'm sending to you.

rskmom - I doubt I'm better than anyone; I just realize that a restrictive job is better than no job at all!

miss_e - thanks!

Heather - Thanks! I've had them for ages and ages and I am going to be sad when they finally die - which I think is coming soon. Maybe we'll have to do a Law & Order: Special Accesories Unit!

Suzzane - yeah, it's rough, but it's a paycheck!

Sarah - haha! We've resorted to the notes thing a time or two, but what? Are we in gradeschool with the passing of notes. Sheesh.

Kristen said...

HEE.

I am stuck on the computer every minute I am not in meetings (which is a substantial chunk of time).

I think I need to bring a box of cuties into work tomorrow...

Eilsel said...

I love this outfit- perfect combination of colors!!!

Tina said...

Kristin - I highly recommend cuties as a workday distraction. There are many ways to have fun with them...eating them, juggling them, drawing on them so they look like jack-o-laterns.

Eisel - thanks!
