So, the accounting department's main manager below what would be considered VP level if we used the term VP, WahWah, decided today was house cleaning day.  The troops are not pleased.

Talk and walk.  Naked banking.  Aquastuff.  Indy.

There's noise, and fun and goofiness and boxes and sorting and whatever.  Suddenly, a loud yell.  Probably the quietest, most laid back of the bunch is yelling at WahWah.  He says, "calm down."

She says, "I am not calm.  I am PISSED OFF!"

"Why don't we do this," he says.

"You need to back off," she says.

"Come on, we could just try this."


"But all I'm trying to do is make sure . . ."

"NO!  I'm going to have to go for a walk to calm down.  YOU NEED TO LEAVE ME ALONE!  LEAVE ME ALONE!  YOU GOTTA LEAVE ME ALONE!"  And then she left to go take a walk.

I'm not exactly sure what happened, but I'm pretty sure it's WahWah's fault.  He annoys at the best of times.  Telling one of his employees how to arrange her desk probably didn't fly, and he is completely incapable of being reasonable on something like that.  Wow.  He took the one person in the accounting department that would win a "quiet as a field mouse" award and turned her into a raving lunatic for a couple minutes.

But, as BB said, "now that's the workplace environment I've been talking about!"

We've also had some minor incidents amongst the other people in the accounting department as they clean out their filing cabinets, all of them involving underlings telling WahWah to stuff it.  He's making friends and influencing people today.  I almost feel like I have to go tell him off just to not feel left out.


An interesting story was brought to my attention this morning.

I have to wonder what would have happened had they said, "I'll bet you give great head!"  Why would she think getting naked would discourage them?  And who is the moron that called the police?  "Hello, cops?  Yeah, I'd like to report a gorgeous woman taking her clothes off in front of me.  HELP!"

I like the cop's comment, "She's not an unattractive lady."


Despite the ongoing trials of the week, the aquarium continues to grow in and look good.  The ottos have sort of got it down to a routine now.  They start the day on one side of the tank and end it on the other, bouncing around a bit in the middle of the day.  The rocks are starting to form a nice green tint to them that stays conformed to the rocks.  The algae grows, but remains small as the ottos snack on it.  It's really pretty neat to see.

And somehow the glass stays clean.

I will get pictures again someday.  These early work weeks really do in my evenings for some reason.


So, Mrs. NFB realizes that the drive-in is going to double-feature the new Indiana Jones movie with Iron Man and decides she wants to go.  Last night she says, "I really need to see the other Indiana Jones movies first.  I've never seen any of them."

I say, "Well, there's that box set out."

"Really?  Go buy it and we'll start it tonight."


I took the fifty dollar gift card Best Buy sent us for buying an HD-DVD player approximately two days before they announced that HD-DVD players will no longer be made.  Yay us.

So, we watched Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark last night, my wife's first contact with the series.  She liked it.  Tonight's The Temple of Doom and possibly also, The Last Crusade because she wants to be all caught up for Saturday night at the drive-in.

My fear is she'll burn herself out on the awesomeness that is Indiana Jones, but I guess we'll see.

Oh, sounds like another fight's brewing by the filing cabinets.  Laterz.

Temple of Doom should have been first by debacle (2.00 / 0) #1 Fri May 23, 2008 at 08:25:54 AM EST
You ruined it and scarred your wife forever.


I like Temple better myself. . . by nightflameblue (2.00 / 0) #2 Fri May 23, 2008 at 09:07:05 AM EST
and I saw Ark first way back when, so I think it'll be OK.

I like Ark best by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #3 Fri May 23, 2008 at 09:37:59 AM EST
though I only saw Crusade while escorting a bunch of the developmentally disabled, so I don't recall much of it.

Crusade's OK, not perfect. by nightflameblue (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri May 23, 2008 at 10:15:05 AM EST
But it's good entertainment.

I can't believe the number of online snipes I've seen with reviews of the new one saying "none of this matters because Temple of Doom ruined the entire saga."  People.  They're all decent movies, and none of them really hit the point of "OMG AWESOME!" that some people say they do.  They're good fun, but it's not like they've got frickin' laser swords in them or anything.
