    My company just published a reminder that certain things are prohibited in the spaces.
    Seems that Facilities personnel have noticed some heating pads, space heaters, coffee pots, all of which need specific permission before bringing into the offices. And, you know, fine. I'm okay with needing to show a medical necessity to have a space heater or whatever.

    But the list also includes
    o Grills (gas, electric, charcoal, or other)
    .

    I'm fascinated by the story behind why someone had to WRITE DOWN that you shouldn't bring fire rocks into work to set them on fire on or near the desk. Plus, I've never WANTED a grill in my cubicle.

    At least, i didn't. now that i know it's prohibited, i know right where i'd put the hibachi.... I also can smell the steak cooking. Dammit.

    I'm going to guess someone brought an electric grill for a party.

    Judge: State your name.
    Me: Not Guilty
    Judge: What?
    Me: I had it legally changed.
    Judge: You're Not Guilty?
    Me: *turns and slowly walks out*
    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Turns out no. They were just spitballing that line.
    But what someone DID bring to work, here, this building, was a lava lamp... Several lava lamps. I thought we outlived the Lava Lamp craze?
    Didn't we?

    Bought my wife flowers, had them delivered to her work.
    Impressed her coworkers, esp. when they learned it's not her birthday or our anniversary. Just Because.

    MY coworkers are all scandalized.
    "What's the occasion?" "Nuthin'."
    "What did you do, then?" "Nuthin'."
    "God, my wife would yell at me for wasting money on flowers!"
    "I'd yell at my husband for spending money like that!"
    "I'd get in so much trouble..."

    And I'm just, "Well, _I_ got brownie points, so you doomsayers can just fuck off with yourselves."

    1) Other?
    2) So you need to bring in an electric skillet.

    Next Monday updates:
    - No Grills
    - No Skillets

    3) Bring in waffle maker

    Next Monday updates:
    - No Grills
    - No Skillets
    - No heating implements

    4) Bring in electric blender

    Next Monday updates:
    - No Keith&Co's.

    Yeah, we react that quickly to stimuli.
    I'm at least 10 years from retirement, and there's a good chance i could outrace such an update.
