Five thing Friday - New Job Edition

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all had a lovely week and are winding down for a great weekend! I want to give a shout out to Kev and his vocal jazz group, Avante. They're heading up to Kev's home town for a concert this Saturday and I know they're going to kick some major butt! 

It did mean that Kev left the house at 415am this morning. Which resulted in all the animals waking up and singing me the songs of their people. Godiva was screaming for food, Cleo was whining to pee and Titus banged on the door like a swat team. Oh, and I had a flat tire this morning. I'm going to need copious amounts of coffee. 

For my 5 things Friday I decided to show 5 things from my new job. Here they are!

1. When I was negotiating my salary, my new boss asked me what snacks I wanted and of course, Skittles. This bowl and bag was in my office the first day. Reflecting back, I should have asked for Skittles in perpetuity. Just a never ending bowl of Skittles.

2. This might seem trivial but this is the first time I legitimately have an office with a door. For real, this makes me so so happy. I also have a window with a view of the parking lot. 

3. The first day, as an initiation, they took me to Smokey's BBQ which is literally a trailer that has amazing BBQ. I've driven past it 100s of times in the last 4 years and never stopped in. 

One of the best things about the place is all the things to look at. The walls are full of "interesting" things. This note was in the women's room and it made me chuckle. 

Then there was this. The stuff that nightmares are made of. Apparently someone took the butt of a dead deer, turned it upside down and made it in to a horrific face. The deer's butt hole was made into a mouth, completed with tiny awful teeth. The worst part, one of the guys I was there with had seen others of these. Seriously, MORE THAN ONE PERSON THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA. 

It haunts my dreams...

4. There is a room full of snacks. All the snacks you could possibly imagine... here for the taking. Apparently the stash is low right now. 

In the pantry in the kitchen, it's nothing but giant boxes of sugar cereal. It's like an 8 year old was given a credit card and sent to Costco.

5. I got this doTerra car diffuser but it's the perfect size for my office. I love that I can diffuse some oil to my heart's content and I don't even care if someone thinks I'm a hippie. I'm going to have some calm and peace. 

Yes, that's a TARDIS pen and it's awesome.

That's all for me! Have a great weekend!

Linking up!


  1. Love that they brought you skittles, haha!

  2. I'm so upset for that poor deer.
    Congrats on your office. I just lost mine this week so i know how awesome it is to have one.
    I'd need a oil to keep me from eating all those snacks!!!

  3. Congrats on an office! That's HUGE! I'm eating Skittles as I write this ;) Enjoy your weekend!!

  4. hells yes to an office with a door! they won't give me one because it would be shut all day long with a sign on it that says GO AWAY! :D

  5. So nice of them to supply you with Skittles!! The fall colors are really pretty from your office! Congrats on the new job!
