My Secret New Job

I started my new job yesterday. It may interfere with blogging more than being a full-time student did.

I won't be writing much about my new job because

  1. I'm happy to be there and don't want to get dooced;[Note 1] and
  2. I want to get called to the bar next June.

But I can show you why I am happy to be there.

Cake for me and the other new guys on our second day:

I don't have a door I can shut, but this is the view from my cubicle:

I'm eager to get called to the bar so that signs like this one will no longer apply to me:

Hey, a job with cake! Looks like city hall to me. (If so, you just missed employee recognition month.) Oh well, who cares if anybody recognizes you, as long as they're *honouring* you with cake!

Hey Hammerhead,

(1) Where's "Note 1"? I gotta know what "dooced" is and you're leaving me hanging.

(2) I'd never have guessed from your photos where your "secret new job" is (see zoom!'s comment).

(3) Good luck.

(1) Put your mouse over the note. A little box should appear with words inside it.

(2) When someone says something is secret can't you people leave it alone?

(3) Thanks, good luck to you too.

Say, you might be interested to know that there's controversy brewing in the comments on my old post aboutt the Junk Bros.

Hey, I didn't say WHICH city that city hall was in, did I?? It looks like, um, Gatineau City Hall to me. Avec gateau.

Nope. The mouse cursor thing doesn't work. Maybe it's just my (work) computer, so I won't hold it against you (yet/this time).

It says: "Wikipedia: to be 'dooced' is to lose your job as a result of something you wrote in an online journal"

I'll find another way to put notes in my postings.

Given that you have a browser that won't do the mouse rollover, it clearly also doesn't let you view the source HTML of webpages or type search queries like "define:dooce"

They must like you -- they put your name on the cake twice and didn't mention the third guy at all.
