"When I had woken up, I found out Dustin had given my BF pills and they had lost everything at Commerce (something my BF never does. He usually wins every time he plays or else loses very, very little)."

Wow. Just wow.

I can't taint my pending uber with this freaking Brandi insanity so allow me to post the link here. I prefer my trolls to be good writers, but alas, she's painfully awful.

My humble apologies for not getting back on the horse just yet. Real life has taken over in an ugly way.

A massive uber is coming, I promise.

But I was reading BG's work-related post from earlier this week and all the stellar comments/advice and it made me think of the yearly snippet a friend of mine still sends out every year.


One Year Anniversary

I see her every now and then. I often wonder how things would be if I was still on the first floor.

Would she still say hi? Would we be friends?

What I think about most when I see her, though, are the words she so forcefully uttered lecturing a colleague one year ago tomorrow. Some of you know these words.

For those who don't, you will learn them.

For many of us, what she said that night represents the joy, pain, sorrow, laughter and happiness of not only this past year, but many years to come. It represents how we see ourselves, the lives we lead and the work we do.

And yet, we don't even know her name.

I couldn't let this week pass without honoring one of the most profound statements ever made in the halls of this office building. Without further ado, I give you the quote that will live with me, and possibly all of us, for the remainder of our lives.

Without pause nor regret she said:

"I do my goddamn work. May not be the best of work, but I do it."
