Just another vehicle for my wit and charm  
  • 01:48 Eu não tenho borboletas no estômago, tenho cangurus. #
  • 01:49 E rinocerontes, e uma troupe de flamingos que dança cancan. #
  • 10:30 Owning something featured in Think Geek makes me feel good about myself. (Even if it's not really something I bought for myself.) #
  • 11:27 A lado nenhum me levou ter a Amélie como role model a seguir. #
  • 12:55 @EuLuisa Nunca tinha pensado nisso! Mas aposto que é sinónimo para o que pensei quando ouvi a palavra vuvuzela. #
  • 14:20 Today I bothered to make my underwear match. #progress #
  • 15:10 Just "unliked" a lot of pages on Facebook. The world doesn't need to know I like all those things. No one's watching, anyway. #
  • 15:22 está a fazer um esforço desgraçado por não começar a cantar a música d'O Fantasma da Ópera (a única em que sabe a letra). #
  • 16:49 "Go big or go home. I should have probably gone home." #asofterworld #
  • 17:00 'This is the way that we die.' #
  • 17:19 @Qwala Ou o teu post de Domingo só apareceu agora, ou tens um timing estranho para te lembrares de coisas. #
  • 17:21 Watch this space closely, because it's not even 10am and I'm already breaking down. #
  • 17:22 Olha o meu tweet via sms de ontem de manhã! Boa, TMN! #
  • 17:22 My tweets increase dramatically when I'm at either end of a silence treatment. #
  • 17:44 Olha o meu outro tweet via sms, de ontem ou assim. Sinto-me o Lucky Luke do Twitter, mais rápido que as suas próprias actualizações. #
  • 17:56 *fidgeting* I want to get up and dance so much. Curse you, headphones, you fix a problem and then you create a new one. #
  • 22:08 I think I've earned the right to listen to that last.fm playlist, now. #
  • 22:10 3. The Shins - Caring is Creepy #
  • 22:13 8. The Killers - I've got soul but I'm not a soldier #
  • 22:15 10. Iron and Wine - Such great heights #
  • 22:18 And an unplanned detour through Juno's "Anyone else but you". None of this can be healthy. #
  • 22:19 Enjoy that other playlist at bit.ly/9CD85q #
  • 22:23 Now listening to KATFYR - Snow Bunny, so fuck the world and the little horsie it rode on. #
  • 22:24 By the way, that was the first time I swore on twitter. What a landmark. www.swearjarr.com/ #
  • 23:58 Sooner or later I'll start quoting Total Eclipse of the Heart. #

I tell people that when I started my first job they gave me the biggest office in the company but they made me share it with 135 other people. It was a huge open space with desks lined up cheek to jowl, no partitions at all. So, we all were fairly well aware of everything else that went on in the office. One day, a co-worker sitting about 15m away was in a very... Animated conversation on the telephone. He was getting louder and louder and heads were turning. Finally, near the end of the conversation he was sputtering and practically speechless. Finally he practically screamed into the phone, "Fuck you, then! Just... Fuck. You."

He raised his arm to slam the phone down onto the cradle, then he stopped. He put the phone back up to his ear and shouted, "And if you have ANY friends, fuck THEM too!" At this point he DID slam the phone back down onto the cradle. Your loss of swear virginity on Twitter reminded me of that exchange.

Oh my, that's quite a story!
We have an open desk space quite like that (just not for 135, maybe 30 to 40)... so whenever anything is going on on my side (usually via Messenger) it's quite hard to make sure I look just fine on the outside.
