So this is Friday

A couple of our summer students are leaving today, so the company is having a little ice cream social for them at 2pm. Since I work from 7-4, what am I really going to be able to accomplish after eating half my weight in ice cream? And lunch is still 12-1, so how productive can one be for one hour when one is contemplating eating half one's weight in ice cream?

If anybody needs me, I'll be asleep in the chemical storage closet.

I love these ice cream socials and pizza parties they have at work. They should toss in some coloring books and have us watch cartoons the rest of the day.

I'd just be happy with naptime in the mid-morning

You could go on a rampage and destroy everything in the office and blame it on the ice cream.

Lee Ann: Yeah, it was. I can remember actually accomplishing anything, though...

Ubie: I usually just blame my rampages on lab demons.

An ice-cream social?

Do you work at a summer camp for pre-teens, or something?

It's a research company with about 50 people, more than half of them have Ph.D.s, so yes, it is surprisingly like a pre teen camp. It's ten pounds of weird in a five pound sack.
