Got to work in a flat spin this morning. Everything went wrongâ€¦I overslept a bit more than usual, had a fashion crises, a bad hair day and Darcy decides to choose the moment I`m walking out the door to announce that he is not well mommy (poor puppy). So, I arrive late. In my harassed state I basically fling myself into the lift, much to the amusement of two lanyarded, t-shirted, jeans wearing techies. I look crazyâ€¦bag over one shoulder, laptop over the other and I`m balancing my take-away coffee, a file and a diary.
And there we are…. we`re kind of doing the thing we all do in liftsâ€¦ignore each other, inspect the floor, ceiling, etcâ€¦
When the one techie says to the other, So, have you checked out Blogs.24? It`s seems to be quite cool. It`s like they`re going for a MySpace feelâ€¦ and they proceed to launch into techie-speak. I have no idea what they`re saying, but I`m listening. Closely. It`s Blogs.24, right? And I`m curious about what these geeks are saying about my little cyber-home.
They have some cool blogs there. There`s this one chick at least I think it`s a chick Princess something or otherâ€¦Ja. Cool blog. She`s slightly crazy though. But not crazy in a boil bunnies way. Crazy in a nice way. Princess somethingâ€¦.mmmâ€¦Princess Diary? No, that`s not it. Anywayâ€¦.Ja. You should check it out.
*At this point I`m staring rather fixedly at the keys on the floor indicater-thingie-me-bob. I think I might`ve been audibly hyperventilating too*
I`m blushing in a big way. The lift door opensâ€¦they turn to me, smile, the one guy winks and he says, It really is a cool blog. Have a good day, Princess.
Eek. The world is too small.
Ps: Guys, if you`re reading thisâ€¦.offer to buy me coffee next time, ok?
