Thanks for the concern, Leslie dear.  And I am SO glad I don't work for DeNiro...

Uh oh... what's wrong with DiNiro? :o (or does this belong in Clueless questions)? :D

Nothing. A girl can only cope with so many high-maintenance men at once, though. :D

She is so upset that she was thinking of *poisoning* her lunch tomorrow. I kid you not. I mean, I would be mad if someone took my lunch, sure, but poison the poor sod?

Poison takes many forms. One of my co-workers addressed the theft problem by inserting a message on a piece of paper placed between the ham and the cheese of a sandwich.

Very simple message: "Why are you eating my food?"

Problem resolved.

Another:

Last Friday evening, cutting across Leicester Square from Chinatown to get to Waterloo, I think to myself: 'no Londoner would ever be in this godforsaken place of a Friday evening', look up, and there are Johnboy and David standing side by side, jaws slack in true tourist-style, staring at the chiming clock thingamybob on the former Swiss Centre.

Hey, it's a very fine clock!

And lots of moving things as well.

That's very very good. Passing it along to my co-worker as she has not used the rat poison (yet).
I like mine moist and buttery.

In lieu of the rat poison, how about some well placed Ex Lax?

Then that happened.

He sort of thrust it at me (with suitable male audience) saying he thought I was in need of it.

It's an annual joke of his when he grows too many cucumbers in his garden.

3 nights in a row of no alcohol consumption. I am surreally energetic, vibrant, and alert. I'd hate to feel this good all the time.

Be thankful he just thrust it AT you. :D
