Transporter Test

Last week we got to see what Chris was up to. This week we'll catch up with Lisa to see how far along she is on programming a transporter system. Apparently, she can code an actual, physical transporter pad into existence. She's good!

It's not public knowledge...well, now it is...but we pretty much just hired Brett to experiment on. He's designed to take quite a bit of abuse, and we like to believe it makes him sad when we don't abuse him. We won't ask him directly, but we like to believe that.

If you're interested, Lisa's book this time is "Harry Potter and the Dangerous Experiment," and the design on her tee shirt is equal parts fun and heartbreaking:

Remember Chris? This isn't the Chris who brought us doughnuts, but the Chris who agreed to join us to help install an AV system in our conference room! Looks like the cables are run, the network is ready, and the head-to-head between Chris and Rachel has begun! We're not sure why he needs so many CAT-6 cables for one conference room (or why he's capping them with RCA tips), but he's the professional. We just work here.

This is actually a joke Chris made when he was emailing back and forth with Brett about his interests and so on. It looks like Brett decided to use Chris's joke to avoid writing his own punchline. He will be dealt with. (We're kidding.)

Tune in over the next couple weeks to see how Lisa is coming with the Star Trek transporter Pat wanted, and how Mary's doing while she helps the store do some Tak fulfillment!

Hole Punch

Okay, we work in an office. Office environments tend to have office supplies. But Mindy had zero luck last week finding a hole punch. She needed to punch three holes. Just three. And everyone was pretty sure we had a single-hole punch lying around somewhere, but nobody could agree on exactly where it was. Eventually, Mindy just went out and bought one (which she has secreted away in her desk somewhere), but not before Brett decided to not be helpful at all.

There's a long-running question in the office about who has the market cornered on dad jokes. Jeff is ahead only because he's an actual dad, but Brett does his best to offend our sensibilities, and that's not nothing.
