I work in Pink and Green

I was creating an excel spreadsheet for work and I had to color code it for the different Quarters...So of course Q2 and Q3 are pink and green as those two quarters are Spring and Summer. Is that odd? Q1 and Q4 didn't get the love, I must be coming off a long weekend!

That being said, I have a this leather holder that I keep paperclips in and yes you guessed it they are all pink and green clips. And the thumb tacks that I have on my board are also pink and green. I will say that project was done while was on a conference call that was running more than an hour over and it was all I could do to not hang up.

If I'm going to spend as much time at the office as I do I need it to be very Kimba!

Yes, I'm losing it!

Now that I'm talking about work it's time I bring up the change I am making myself do while on the bus to and from work.

I've been known to look at TMZ or People and also blogs on my Blackberry while riding to work. I was looking around a few weeks ago and thought ok this is pathetic everyone around me is either reading the paper or reading a book. I do read magazines from time to time, but my commute is only 15-20 minutes and there is a lot of moving around and I feel reading a book would be pointless. Nonetheless, as you know I've recently purchased two new books and I am going to make myself start to read while on the bus.
At least I'm not as bad as some people who do nothing but stare at others or look out the windwo and not make a move.

I think that's enought work talk for one post!

Be careful not to get motion sickness reading on the bus!

I think I need to follow your lead and work with pink and green office supplies too! I do have pink and green post-its that I use quite often:)

Love it! You should definitely make your work place as nice as possible. I always get pink note pads and have monogrammed post-its. I'll have to keep my eye out for the pink & green paperclips.
BTW, Q1 could be "ice blue" and Q4 could be orange or tan for fall. ;-) I love to color code spreadsheets too.
