Who’s got two thumbs and a birthday today? J.K. Rowling! (And me.)

Howdy! I’m thirty-five today! Thirty-five. It feels like only yesterday I was thirty-four.  My co-workers and I are going to go out tonight and, since we work in Koreatown, yell classic songs into microphones. I anticipate Olympic-quality loudness. If you notice that the seagulls in Atlantic City are missing, it is probably because they are being called like the sailors in The Odyssey to the siren-like sounds of our voices. I will try to take pictures.

In the meantime, a war has been going on at my office. It has been tense and filled with drama. It is… The Post-It War.

Here’s how it started. The people one floor below us put this up in their window.

And then this appeared on the windows directly beneath us.

My co-worker was like, “You think you’re better than us? Well, check this out.” So now our window looks like this.

The others weakly retaliated with this, but they knew who had won.

The Great Post-It War of 2012 has cooled for now, but at any time Donkey Kong or Q-Bert or one of the cool pipe Venus Flytrap thingies might make an appearance, and then it’s right back on again. Blood again shall be spilled! (In the form of papercuts)

Finally, it occurred to me that this month is also the fifth anniversary of this blog. I want to say thank you to whoever comes here and I look forward to another five years. It’s been delightful. I never knew I liked writing, but I really do. I hope you like reading it.

Addendum: Also happening at work this week, the prop closet was cleaned out. That’s where stuff goes after photo shoots and commercial shoots. Wigs and mustaches were found. Therefore, several women on the 11th floor rocked this look all day:
