Sing along with me "GeneTree,.. my kind of place, GeneTree is..my kind of place...

OK, OK, I'm no Frank Sinatra.

And, we're not in Chicago...

...but........

what a pleasure work at a place where the people actually LIKE each other.

I am so used to working with sort of gossipy-rude-mean-witchy women and men who try to on-up each other all the time.

..a pleasure....

One young girl is leaving to have her first baby. They decided to give her a surprise party. Now remember, we are an office of mostly young men-I think I have things in my fridge older than most of them... yet everyone was so kind and really happy for her -a pleasure.


And it was a pleasure to bake cupcakes for the party. My idea.

.....after all, I just finished reading "Brown Nosing for Dummies" ....



.. so last night, I baked and frosted 50 cupcakes. I didn't need that many, but Mr. B would be sad if I didn't leave a couple for him. Oh yah, and one for me...ahem...

The one thing I didn't count on was rain.

A lot of rain.

Buckets of rain.

And me trying to figure out how to get 47 decorated cupcakes from my kitchen to my car - then from the car to our office.


Hmmm...


As I looked at the cupcakes, I was trying to picture how they would fit, your know, spacely (I know what I am trying to say here - just don't know the word for it..space-il-ly...)


If necessity is the Mother of invention - I think I was adopted...


I need something deep, to not mess up the frosting...and something long....why?? bee-cause... I made lots of cupcakes...lots.... and lots....


I KNOW! a DRAWER!! Huh...???

Yep, a drawer. I had it all figured out.



Take that oh necessity's Mother.....


Emptied the drawer - carefully placed the cupcakes in the now emptied drawer...row after row...


They all won't fit.


Poo.


Think,,think..think...hey, just like Winnie the....Poo(h)...


Then I remembered the storage thingy we got for those long rolls of Christmas papers -whadda ya know - it worked and had the extra bonus of a lid... Waxed paper be gone!







Anyway, the party was a success, my Brown Nosing for Dummies was a good investment..now if I can just get them to keep liking me after the Honeymoon period is over!?!

Goout there (hey- it sounds like I'm from Canada, eh?!!) and have a great Friday....


... and remember....you can keep a lot of things on your drawers, but cupcakes probably shouldn't be one of them...

I bet they would be best friends. She is a doll. They may fuss over the glitz hehe.
Love the cup cakes.. you are so special. I guess I missed the post about your new job. Where are you working? You seem happier there anyway.

Jan said...

You are a doll! Wanna come work at MY office? We could use some cupcakes there! LOL!
Glad you're fitting in so well at the new office (as if there was any doubt!)

Blessings!

They should put you in charge of doing a newsletter at your new job! You are certainly the mother of invention. A drawer...I would have never thought of that. I'll just put the cupcakes in a drawer. They look wonderful and work is lucky to have you!

Oh Yes, Lovin' those cuppies. Obviously your workmate did too. What an ingenious (did I spell that right) little person you are. I seriously hope they appreciate you (apart from the cupcakes) at your office.
Hugs, Coll :-}
