Whale fluke

Uncertainty

It's a sign of the uncertainty and unsettled-ness of my office right now that this morning, when I overheard the new manager talking about how several people "had quit," I thought she meant they had quit their jobs. (In fact, they had quit their smoking.)

Whale fluke

Every title I can think of sounds lame.

Today a co-worker and I were talking, and she mentioned seeing who she thinks are new hospital residents, and how young they looked. "They get younger all the time," she said.

"They'll call it the Grey's Anatomy effect," I said. "They want the residents to be as sexy as possible."

I slapped myself before she could. I also said, "I'm sorry, that was bad." "That was bad," she said, chuckling.

I don't even watch Grey's Anatomy...though I do seem to be developing a thing for Sandra Oh (hey, she used to be a ballet dancer)...
