|11:23 am - oh we are in trouble|
They just gave us all yo-yos in the office. The yo-yos light up when they spin.
All work has ceased while everybody plays with their yo-yos. So far three have broken. Oh it is a Tuesday.

i'm laughing picturing this
Someone didn't think through the productivity issues of a light-up-yo-yo, did they?
also it took me a second read to 'get' the title. *sigh*
I can't help but say "oh dear we aaaaare in trouble" as Filtch from HP2.
I just didn't read it properly the first time round.
of course, perhaps the rest of the world doesn't revolve around harry potter so WHO KNOWS maybe there was nothing to 'get'!
I'm really very tired and should go hom eto bed.
I always agree re: napping.
And I honestly wasn't going for any ref, Potter or otherwise, with the title, so I'm amused and bemused and beaarthur about it all now.
See, and I thought you were being all clever what with Filch being the one who confiscates fun things like light-up yoyos from the students and stuff.

I'll just have to play with my Whee-lo.
IT IS NOT EXPERIENCED ENOUGH

*very loud SNERK*
I'm picturing you all at the end of your headset cords, doing trick yo-yo stunts.
We got little 8-ball keychains and other 8-ball paraphernalia scattered about. It is truly, truly boring. They've given out magnetic darts before too. Also boring. (Well-branded though!)
Blinky things would be welcome, particularly if we have to get things anyway. Happy Blinky things to you. Teach me what tricks to learn, hey?
Companies are Weird>.
PS. I spin play-poi at work sometimes... I have yet to hit anybody with them [except myself] and of course they ain't on fire... but people persist in treating me as though I'm wielding nun-chucks. This is slightly more amusing.
Yours in randomness,
PPS. Finding and getting a crush on Firefly has given me the authorization to say things like "ain't" in earnest. Woo, hoo!
Hrm. Perhaps you should have some variation in your poi spinning objects. Wear one of those karate outfits one day to work while spinning a pair of rubber chickens perhaps? Nun-CHICKS. *grynz* (but don't, of course, make it a HABIT....)
