Notes to some people around here
To the woman watching the youtube videos of octopuses on computer 42 upstairs:
Thank you. I really enjoyed them.
To the woman in the office with my supervisor all afternoon:
You are always welcome here.
To the very exasperated lady I helped a lot at the front desk:
Looking like famed British actress Judi Dench could be a source of joy in your life.
To my quiet reference co-worker who now says "Hi." and also now occasionally comes to me with questions:
My virtues really start to shine through after five or six years, and I in no way hold your caution against you.
To the young man with the t-shirt that says "I am immature, unorganized, lazy and loud, but I'm fun!":
Your t-shirt set up an array of expectations with me, none of which were met.
To the gigantic man who returned his internet guest pass to me and said "Thanks, chief.":
You have brightened my day.
To Lao Tzu, who said, in a book by Donald Rumsfeld (ick!), “Those who know do not speak. Those who speak do not know.”:
That is totally harsh for bloggers and Taoist poets!
