One of my favorite things about my new job is that there are so many people working in this office, and sometimes words and sentences of their conversations filter over to my cubicle, and I write them down and make a list:
  1. "...sort of like a possum or soemthing with a leather shell on top."
  2. "Very few people eat carp."
  3. "There's quite a population of rats in the Memphis area."
  4. "I've done all the blender research."
  5. "Greek civilization is a lot more ancient than French civilization."
  6. "There's nothing but sausage left."
  7. "You may have to live on coconuts."
  8. "It's not a culturally accepted norm here, to be drunk at work."
