Monkey Business

So it was this girl's birthday at work today. One of the guy's had this Barbie-themed party all worked out for her with a Good Time Barbie on the cake that was decorated like the beach, etc. However, this girl's husband had other plans for the party. He sent her a Singing Gorilla Telegram. So this MAJORLY redneck chick in a monkey suit shows up with a bouquet of balloons and a boom box. There was no actual singing involved. She just had this routine of lame jokes, and then she put on a song and danced around. Except she had to have someone help her with the boombox because she couldn't hit the buttons in her gorilla gloves. I was like, "Someone with opposable thumbs to the boombox quick!" Then she jumped up on this shelving while she was dancing and slipped on a napkin, and we all thought she was going to fall over backwards and crack her head open. She didn't though -- thank goodness. All we needed was a singing gorilla lawsuit.

I laughed so hard my cheeks hurt, but the birthday girl did not take it well. She was still so mad at her husband when she left the office. The best part is we got it all on video, so I'm sure it will get digitized and start circulating the office network.

Other than that my day was pretty uneventful. Just research and deadlines.
