October 20th: Spirit Day

In Honor of Tyler Clementi
On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the LGBT youth who have committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes and schools.PURPLE represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. We want to thank Brittany McMillan for creating this event!
RIP: Tyler Clementi, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase, Asher Brown, Cody J. Barker, Harrison Chase Brown, Caleb Nolt, Billy Lucas, Jeanine Blanchette, and Chantal Dube. Unknown deaths.
- I forgot to wear purple. I looked around the cube to see what I had to put into use. So here is what I ended up with.
Here is my coworker's purple creation. YAY for Love and support!

Only in the south

Found this at the Starbucks at Lavista Rd in Atlanta. Only in the south would you use the word Yank in reference to an verb vs. a noun.

Foos ball & The Broken Man Trophy

Here at the office we have a foos ball table. I personally think we're pretty good, like, we could probably place somewhere in a real tournament. But without question, we would definitely kick Joey, Chandler, and Monica's butt. Anywho. We have become so good, that it is rare that a team would not score any points. On the rare occasion that it would happen, the opposing team mates would have bragging rights for at least a week.

We have worn out many parts on the table, and when we were replacing a broken man one day someone said, we should make a broken man trophy to hang outside our cubes/offices. Grantbob came up with the plan, and I executed it. So I went to Michael's to get a plaque, stained it, and painted the broken man silver. Next Grantbob gorilla glued the broken man to the plaque. Finally we were able to hand over the trophy to the current trophy holders. It's really a trophy of shame, appropriately titled, The broken man trophy.

I would never mention any names as to who the current trophy holders are. And one is not in the office today, so once they return, I will take another pic of both pieces.

Here is our foos table.
