Because my co-workers and I have the collective maturity of a twelve-year-old boy, the subject of the Better Marriage Blanket came up at lunch. They seemed to know what it was, and though it wasn't hard to figure out what they were talking about, I was advised to google it. So I did. But, what's even better than the blanket is this WebMD blog post about it. Enjoy.

One of my coworkers is just out of college and is a little naive. I had the following IM conversation with her and I have to record it for posterity.

Her: so i'm having [other coworker] retrieve an article for me that i need and for some reason one of the security things is that a phd number needs to be typed in so [he] suggested i ask you for yours...its a free article but one of the security questions is asking for a phd number for some reason

Me: I think he is pulling your leg
I don't know what a PhD number is and I certainly don't have one

Her: stupid [person] didnt sound like a real thing

Me: it's not like I got a serial number tattooed on my ass after I defended

Her: haha

I have two memos and a presentation to put together and I don't want to do any of 'em.

Being a grownup sucks.

Today we all had a good laugh at work when a story was related wherein one of the analysts thought that one of the batch records he was reading said that something should be "scrumptiously clean," when in fact it read "scrupulously clean." After a great deal of fun was had at his expense, we discussed whether there should be a "scrump" scale to rate the scrumptiousness of foods. The base unit of 1 scrump = a baby carrot was posited (I think because I had them in my lunch) and then it was generally agreed on that Kraft Macaroni & Cheese made the original way with half a stick of butter would be 100 scrumps.

I think we need more points on the scale, though. Scrumps are kind of like Scoville units for the hotness of peppers. What's your scrump value for your favorite scrumptious foods? I'm thinking that cooked spinach is about -50, at least for me.

Sometimes at work, I have to amuse myself.

One of my friends ordered a remote control for Powerpoint presentations. You plug the USB hoozit into your computer, turn on the remote, and away you go. It advances slides, goes full-screen, has a timer in it, and is also a laser pointer. It is definitely Nifty.

As [ profile] sarcasticval taught me, the proper term for "USB hoozit" is "dongle."

We were having our dry run for the Phase 1 review a week or so ago, and I brought my remote along for people to try out.

Me *brightly*: "Who wants to use the dongle?"


They did like my Powerpoint dongle, though. I'll have to scare up the part number.
