Hands wigged out.

Duh. We all should’ve seen that one coming. The guy was totally weird, but I guess I really didn’t think he’d freak on Shirley and try to kill her! I mean, dude. All I can say is thank god for those typing lessons. I can’t even imagine what would have happened . . . And here I was honestly going to make an effort to be nicer to him, I really was. I mean, I kind of owe him one, but maybe it’s just as well that I didn’t. Can I just say I was completely and utterly CREEPED OUT when he called me the hot secretary who makes him nervous? *shudders* But you know, it is unfair how the partners were treating him. I mean, Alan and I couldn’t have won that case without him. The guy is a genius. Everyone takes advantage of his super brain, and then just – poof! – disregards him when they don’t need him anymore. Uncool.

But whatever. I’m just still just trying to recover. I am happy for Mr. Chase though. He seems to fit in really well with the partners. It’s just too bad everybody can’t be a partner.

This is so the weirdest job I’ve ever had.

You're 'hot secretary who makes him nervous'. I'm a sub-standard partner. And I gave him the knife.

Besides, Paul told me someone said I'm a smiling Ken doll with an aggressive handshake. *rolls eyes* Wonder who that was.

Wonder why Paul told you.
Brad Chasebrad_chase on January 12th, 2006 12:24 am (UTC)
Yeah, him being such a big fan of yours and all.
Alan Shore: is there even a word for this expressionalan_shore on January 12th, 2006 03:20 am (UTC)
Precisely. He's not the type to quote me for the sheer joy of it.
Brad Chasebrad_chase on January 12th, 2006 04:06 am (UTC)
It's what came after the quote. But I wouldn't worry about it. We all have our peccadillos. He keeps telling me I talk too fast.
Alan Shore: is there even a word for this expressionalan_shore on January 12th, 2006 10:23 pm (UTC)
Nonsense. You only talk too fast if being understood is your goal.

Don't be a tease, Brad. What came after?
Brad Chasebrad_chase on January 13th, 2006 09:56 am (UTC)
*laughs* I'm an open book.

Says I should do something about you. Thinks you have one of those impulse control disorders. I think he used the word grandiosity. I said maybe he wants to be like - what - the Incredible Hulk doll?
Alan Shore: is there even a word for this expressionalan_shore on January 13th, 2006 03:22 pm (UTC)
To think I've known Paul all this time and yet I never realized he was a psychologist. I must say, in addition, that I find it highly ironic he saw fit to pull aside the man whose violent impulses nearly landed him in prison recently in order to discuss my apparent lack of control.

The Incredible Hulk derived power from his anger. I'm more than capable of keeping mine in check.

Alan, I'm hardly violent. By the way, still have your Batman and Robin action figures here?

No no no. Brad you were a seriously courteous winner. You reached out to him, and invited him in. Offering him the knife was a gesture of compassion and friendship, there's no way you could've known he was going to butcher the poor cake and terrorize everybody with it.

*laughs* You know, you do kind of look like - no, never mind.
Brad Chasebrad_chase on January 12th, 2006 08:08 pm (UTC)
I understand that you were cool under pressure. Nice going. Hey - d'ya notice we both got defined by our exterior? Even in a roomful of highly educated colleagues. It's disappointing.
Melissa Hughesmelissa_hughes_ on January 12th, 2006 08:21 pm (UTC)
I recognized the situational dynamics and tried maintain a composed demeanor *pauses as if expecting an applause* Well, actually I was scared to death, but doing whatever he said seemed to be the best course of action. *then, smugly* I typed pretty well, didn't I?

Yes. That's exactly how people define us. Happens to blondes all the time. I mean, I know it comes with the turf when you've got a fabulous exterior, but I do get tired of it.
Brad Chasebrad_chase on January 12th, 2006 08:36 pm (UTC)
*nods approvingly, trying to cap the smile* Y'know, presenting a calm front is a major tool for a hostage negotiator. You've got more than a few skills there.

You and I - we just need to keep proving we've got the smarts to back it up, but it's people like Jerry who pay the price of that prejudice. I mean - Alan hired you and I'm a partner now. *ironically* Tough life.
Melissa Hughes: Seriousmelissa_hughes_ on January 12th, 2006 09:04 pm (UTC)
Wow, that's so sad *pauses for a few earnest moments to ponder the hapless plight of the non-beautiful*

Do you really think I'd make a good hostage negotiator? Oh, and congratulations by the way. I'm sure you'll make a totally great partner.
Brad Chasebrad_chase on January 12th, 2006 09:22 pm (UTC)
Mind you, some people put their quirks to work for them. *Brad makes a nearly imperceptible head tilt toward to her bosses door* I'm not blind. There's an audience for everything.

No. *Brad believes in being straight forward* But a professional typist, yeah. *Shoving his hands in his pockets, he shrugs one shoulder* Thanks. Validation.
