The mug situation.

April 26, 2010

Dirty Mugs

Depending upon how you look at it, the mug situation at Search & Social can either be seen as a good thing or a bad thing. If you ask the Boss (Dave), he’ll say it’s disgusting and somewhat insulting, considering he provided us with the mugs and the endless coffee supply. If you ask the Keeper (Kim), she’ll tell you to wash the damn mug you polluted or keep it on your desk. If you ask me, I say 1) it’s kind of gross, but 2) maybe it’s a *sign* that we are raging feminists who are tired of washing dishes and cleaning up, in which case we should install a dishwasher and be done with it. In the mean time, I’ll keep drinking out of my personal mug and admiring the view from the top-of-the-micro.


4.20 Extravaganza

April 21, 2010

On Monday, I rolled around to jokingly address my coworkers here in the Tampa office: “So, what’s everyone doing for 4.20?”

The responses varied, but the general consensus here was watching TV.

So, the infamous day rolls around and we SEOtini girls carried about our office life as usual. In fact, I don’t recall anyone from Search and Social mentioning the “holiday” except Mr. Kasteler via Facebook calling out the “glorious day.”

Therefore, the day was very much so out-of-sight and out-of-mind until later in the evening when we received an e-mail from the Utah office.

SUBJECT: happy 420


*DISCLAIMER: The owners and employees of Search and Social do not condone smoking illegal substances, as this would be a violation of Act 4.20 in the National Rule Book. The smoke you see in this picture is from tobacco… maybe.

Just want to give a shout out to the whiz (aka Selly).

The Whiz

The Whiz at work.

Not only did the Whiz fix the sound on my computer this week (see photo above), but she also mended my broken heart this morning with a hand-delivered Vente Iced Green Tea with honey to make up for Tuesday’s conundrum…

My starbucks tea

My makeup or breakup Starbucks tea.

Selly gets the golden ribbon of honor this week for her charitable efforts. There is something to be said about a girl with an honest conscience (and fear of having her coffee spiked as a payback).

A special shout-out goes to the rest of the crew for dealing with a certain someone’s PMS this week.

Slightly heartbroken

April 13, 2010

Zee is heartbroken.

That's me with a broken heart.

I have a slight crack in my heart. It hurts. The office got Starbucks while I was out to lunch and didn’t text me for my order. So everyone is getting java’d up and I am in an afternoon slump, slightly heartbroken. I will survive, I promise. I just wanted to get it out there. I feel better already. Meanwhile, Glicky is making fun of me by making crying noises. I can’t wait to get the next Starbucks order. Glicky will be drinking carrot juice and Selly will be drinking decaf. Oh, and Dave will be drinking Moonshine.

I should have known something was up when three out of six SEOtini girls said they were “too busy” to accept the bosses invite to Mimi’s Cafe today. But I didn’t. I was too distracted with the idea of free lunch. Needless to say, we came back to this…

Happy April Fools Day to me!

Happy April Fools Day to me!

And this…

Happy April Fools Day Andrea!

And this…

Happy April Fools Day Joanna!

Luckily for us fools, Selly was still out to lunch with the boyfriend when we returned, so we managed to squeeze in a little payback.

Right back at you Selly!

I say little, because the payback has only begun. We (as in Team Mission Payback) still have to get TT Thao and Kim Kajones back. But you never know when we’ll strike back. That’s the beauty of it all: the surprise element. Stay tuned for more…

And here are the behind-the-scenes footage of the whole thing. ENJOY! Muahahaha >-)


Part 1 – Mission: The Girls

Part 2 – Mission: The Bosses

Part 3 – Mission: Accomplished

We feel for you.

March 26, 2010

It’s Friday, so let me diverge from my work just a little to brag about our bosses at Search & Social, again.

Lunch Delivery by the Boss

The boss with our Crispers order.

I apologize if your boss is the kind of person who lets your work go unnoticed. I feel for you if your boss doesn’t praise you, hand-deliver lunch to you in an elephant-sized bag on a Wednesday…

Pizza day!

Kim grabbing a hot slice.

…then have pizza delivered to your office the very next day on Thursday because he’s feeling generous, appreciative, and sorry for you all at the same time. I really feel for you. Honest, I do.

Pizza for breakfast anyone? Mmmmm.

Joanna threw us for a spin the other day when she came in looking strangely like Shakira.

I had heard stories before of her beautiful curls, but she always straightens it. So we need your vote!
