CURRENT TOPIC: What is the greatest sacrifice you've made for love?  
CURRENT TOPIC: What is the greatest sacrifice you've made for love?

Ok, first of all, love? Yeah. Second of all, why would I make sacrifices for it, or anything else for that matter? I don’t sacrifice. Life is hard enough already without making any additional sacrifices. I mean, look at what’s happened to me now! Here I am working on a whole different floor, with all these people I don’t even know, and there’s a freaky woman with some kind of eye twitch, and no one trusts me to do any work because they know I’m just here on the mean and unnecessary order of Ms. Schmidt *takes a breath and glares at cubicle wall* and I don’t know anything about what an “H.R.” person really does. Truth is, I don’t think they know. These people are seriously from a different planet.

Oh well, I guess it’s good resume material. And, it does give me better access to certain . . . things I wouldn’t otherwise have access to. And, hopefully it’s only temporary.

Anyway, back to the topic. I don’t think I’ve ever made a sacrifice for love. Unless you count the time I . . . well no, that wouldn’t count. Whatever. Why are we talking about this?
I'm feeling : annoyedannoyed
I'm hearing : They Don't Allow Music in This Department

Has examination of Brad's personnel files yielded anything of interest? Anything worth distributing around the office? The deed to his and Barbie's house in Malibu?

They don't allow music? I suppose they like to maintain a uniform level of surliness. In the event that they've also banned communication from the outside world, I may as well tell you that the case has concluded to the relative satisfaction of both parties and the wall has come tumbling down. I'll see what I can do about effecting your return.

Woo hoo!! *raises hands above head* That means I can come back now? Oh thank God. Seriously Alan, these people were trying to indoctrinate me. Did you know they have a "creed" posted on the wall? Supposedly I'm supposed to 'compliment five people every day' and 'say hi to someone I don't know - ' okay I won't bore you with the details. but that's great news. See? I knew you'd get him off. And now I can look at more than your shoes, right?

*smiles* There's no reason you shouldn't be allowed back. You've served your time in HR; moreover, I don't think Shirley wants me infiltrating additional departments.

All aspects of my person are now available for viewing.
Melissa Hughes: Admiringmelissa_hughes_ on January 24th, 2006 10:53 pm (UTC)
Shirley should have to serve time in HR. What's that b**ch's problem? Anyway, I'm glad things are back to normal and that you're back *smirks* on display.
Alan Shorealan_shore on January 25th, 2006 05:15 am (UTC)
I like to think I comprise a large part of Shirley's problem, but I suppose some credit should be given to the incident where she was nearly killed.

I saved your desk. Well, I took note of its appearance before it was relocated. Given my penchant for staying after hours, I should have no difficulty retrieving it.
Melissa Hughes: Wrymelissa_hughes_ on January 25th, 2006 02:44 pm (UTC)
*laughs* Yeah, I suppose almost being killed might have that effect.

They relocated my desk? Just like that? Wow, you leave for a minute and they try to wash away any trace that you existed. Ha! I guess that's one advantage of working late. Doesn't it feel too quiet though?

They needed to make way for the wall. It's not always work that detains me and I allow myself the luxury of music.
Melissa Hughes: Wrymelissa_hughes_ on January 25th, 2006 11:28 pm (UTC)
Ohhh, the big ass wall. (Took me a sec.) That must have been so weird, people treating you like you have a disease or something. I can't imagine.

That's right, Denny detains you, or I mean, *sadly* used to detain you. He's really going to marry her, isn't he.
Alan Shorealan_shore on January 26th, 2006 04:06 am (UTC)
It's certainly not an experience I'm eager to repeat. Half the office refused to make eye contact. At least the sick have people offering to make them soup.

He really is. *smiles* After seeing them together, I couldn't possibly say she isn't good for him.
Melissa Hughes: Sidemelissa_hughes_ on January 26th, 2006 05:22 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you think so. Most people here seem to think otherwise. But I don't know. Sometimes it's just dangerous to be in love like that, whipped stupid on someone. You know? Especially if it ends up not working out.
Alan Shorealan_shore on January 26th, 2006 10:11 pm (UTC)
It's always dangerous. Were it anybody else, I'd be concerned, but Denny possesses a knack for transforming obliviousness into imperviousness. You've seen--or should I say heard--what he's like. Even if it ends up not working out, his happiness now may outweigh the resulting heartache.
Melissa Hughes: Sidemelissa_hughes_ on January 27th, 2006 06:46 pm (UTC)
*makes a note to look up 'impervious'* Yeah, I guess anyone who's been through five marriages would have to rebound easily. *thinks about it.* Oh yeah, speaking of love and happiness and stuff reminds me, can I leave early today? I have a date tonight. Some dork my friend set me up with I know I'm going to hate him. But anyway, I still have to figure out what I'm going to wear and get my hair fixed. Is that ok?
Alan Shorealan_shore on January 27th, 2006 06:59 pm (UTC)
If you promise to hate him, I suppose it's all right.
Melissa Hughes: Admiringmelissa_hughes_ on January 27th, 2006 09:05 pm (UTC)
*smiles* I promise. *smiles again*

Oh, and don't worry, I'm not going to drink anything, and I've got my brass knuckles and mace just in case.
Alan Shorealan_shore on January 28th, 2006 02:33 pm (UTC)
*bemused* Between your own good judgment and that arsenal, you've put my mind to rest.
