Sometimes when I am sitting at my cubicle I wonder how it compares to a jail cell. Both are dimly lit and kinda cold but maybe a cubicle is better, it’s hard to say. The other day Britt and I came into work both wearing stripes- fitting, huh? I am always reminded of Alcatraz when I see people in stripes so we decided to escape from jail for a little while and snap some photos outside with window bars and brick.
(The trick to looking like you haven’t just escaped from anywhere is walking with swagger. I was feeling a little bit like a badass this afternoon with this new turtleneck on. No one ever suspects a person in a turtleneck of anything but being awesome…I think)
(My “just released from the Clink” look)
(Close up of the buttons going up my neck and would you look at that, it’s 12:15- time for some f@#*ing lunch!)
(Britt is loving her new sweater dress, just in time for Winter- those jail cells can get chilly!)
(Ahhhh, life on the outside, it’s nice!)
(Close up of the studded belt used to accessorize the dress, an inmate has never looked so good)
(A prize scored from a shanking victim. Too far? Fine, she got it at Topshop)
Happy Friday and we hope you get outta your cell, I mean cubicle, quick and make the most of your early release. Come Monday, it is back to the grind!

You’re dragging your feet, whimpering quietly to yourself, and wondering “Why God? Why me?!” You know what we’re talking about, it’s Monday. The fun is over and it is time to get back in the office and spend your day taking orders from The Man. But then sometimes there is a little light peeking over that rock you have been working behind; we like to call that light “happy accidents”.
1. Unidentifiable Smells
Yup, you read that right. An unidentifiable smell equals the potential to be sent home from work early. Let’s face it, 99% of the time it was just some poor sap who shouldn’t have had beans the night before.
2. Awesome Bands
While we are choosing not to disclose where we work, we must say that sometimes lunch means free pizza and the band Fun. That. Does. Not. Suck.
3. Amateur P.I. Sites
You know the days when there is not much going on and you decide to check your personal “Amateur P.I. For Hire” site’s email? Yeah, we thought so. Well, turns out someone needs your service- there has been an unidentifiable smell found in the second floor of your work, better go find out who just ate beans. This brings us to a future post called “We Investigate”, stayed tuned for that gem.
4. YouTube Stardom
Guess what?! That weirdo video you posted of you and your bestie in your pajamas singing about choochoo trains just got 5 hits! That was 4 more since you told your mom you posted it that day, she must have told her neighbors! 5 hits, I think that’s considered viral! You’re going to need to get ready for the fans, paparazzi, and lack of privacy, you know, all the things that go with super stardom.
5. Sweet Surprises
Remember that diet you were going to start today? Well forget about it because a box of cupcakes were delivered to your work at 9 in the morning because some random-person-you-have-never-once-spoken-to is having a birthday! Where’s my confetti gun? It’s time to party!
