I'm the Boss!

I almost wrote "the bomb" instead of "the boss". Power trip already...

Like this, except not at all

You know what's weird? Becoming the supervisor for your former co-workers. This shit is kind of freaking me out. I can even sign things now. I know what you're thinking and no, I don't look anything like He-Man (I did have the haircut at one point, however). And I also can't believe they put me in charge of anything. I mean, it's not like I'm going to go crazy and spend money on a bouncy castle (even though it would be awesome) but I still feel weird about it.

I don't think my co-workers know what to think about it either. I'm pretty laid-back like my old supervisor was so that's good I guess. No need to put the hammer down as long as we're all doing our jobs. I mean, we work in an office... The only difficult thing about general office work is to not die of boredom and to not let the IT guys catch you looking up kitten videos or checking your Tumblr (not that I do either of those things at work- oh and check out my tumblr).

On the other hand, we're grant funded and our grant runs out in October. I predict fun trips and bouncy castles in my future...

I'm Tempted... But I Don't Wanna

No matter how much I'm tempted I don't want to read 50 Shades of Grey
You can't make me read this drivel!

And I'll be honest- I'm seriously tempted to read this. It's basically porn in book format. The thing is, my reading time is so limited as is so I don't want to add a book I'm not interested in just because of the hype. Both my sister-in-law and sister have read it and my sis-in-law is desperately trying to get me to read it. My solution? I told her I'd read it if my husband read it first. He never reads books so I should be safe there. But really? I don't pressure other people into reading books I like. I might suggest something but I don't go to the extent of "you have to read this right now it's amazing, I'll never leave you alone until you do OMFG READ THIS!!!" (note the extra exclamation marks for emphasis)

2 words- STOP. IT. I don't wanna! You can't make me read terrible Twilight fan fiction for adults minus the supernatural BS! For now I'm happy currently reading Stephen King and Jenny Lawson. Those are good books. See? That's a good way to recommend a book without seeming pushy... But you should at least read Jenny Lawson's book if you're looking for a laugh.
