Did I ever tell you the story of my legendary Milton stapler?
Long ago I used to have this really really crappy stapler at work. Our part-time receptionist, who orders the supplies at work, (though not Lisa!) always orders the cheapest crap and every special request (otherwise known as a quality item a little more expensive) would be talked down with a scorned look and a dismissive wave of the hand. You'd think she was paying for the supplies out of her own pocket.
So the stapler she ordered for me was one of those chintzy plastic stand-up staplers that doesn't even fit an entire row of staples in it. Every time I would carefully open the stapler to put a new row in, the last few remaining staples would bunch up and shoot across the room.
After 7 months of this, I had enough one day.
Inspired by Officespace (one of my favorite movies), I stated my case and got approval from two partners to order a GOOD stapler for myself.
Of course, I ordered the Milton Red Swingline stapler. Still works brilliantly 6 years later!
I nearly caused an office scandal when the receptionist found out. And there was nothing she could do about it ... though of course she complained to everyone (but not to my face). Women in the workplace, I tell ya.
Anyway.... I think these two people would be a fantastic addition to Dancing with the Stars:
Stefano and Marlena from Days of our Lives.
Brilliant and Hilarious. Wouldn't that be something if they made it to the Final 2? Do some sort of possessed routine for a tango or freestyle?
Hubs and I scored tix to the Paul McCartney concert in August. I am more of a John Lennon girl myself but I do like me some Paul songs. Better brush up on the tunes! (Your favorite Beatle?)
Last Sunday's Mad Men episode - definitely the best this season and really, the best episode in years. I laughed and laughed. Especially at Pete. I could spend an hour watching this.
Happy Mother's Day weekend to all mothers, hope it is lovely!
