wank me a river, Enki

Game over, thank you for playing

Somehow, the discussion at work turned to whether or not I have ever dreamed about any of my co-workers. Most of the co-workers, I do not actually dream "about"; they're more like standard-issue extras for work-related dreams. For example, if I dreamed that I was going to work, but it was really a spaceship shaped like a pencil, then the co-workers would be there (generally), but it would not be a dream about them.

Given that it was Original Name Supervisor (he is to be renamed Pull My Leg Supervisor) who was inquiring if Cute Geek Super and Rev. Nice Super were ever in my dreams, and if they were ever naked, and if Rev. Nice Super was ever in my dreams rubbing peanut butter on himself ("Only if it's on fire"), it was a very interesting conversation. It turned into a thinly-disguised attempt to figure out if I have the hots for any of my supervisory co-workers.

I attempted to establish that my interest in Rev. Nice Super does not exist ("He's too violent for me"), so they started in working on whether or not I was attracted to Cute Geek Super.

"You're not geeky enough for me," I told him.

This turned into Cute Geek Super vainly trying to defend his geekhood. I think something as dreadfully relevant as "I used to be in debate club in high school" got mentioned. I cracked up.

Slightly later on, someone brought up D&D. Cute Geek Super's response? "I said I was a geek, not a loser."

...

Nope, not even slightly geek enough.

Actually Not A Geek & Auditory oddness

My co-worker formerly known as "Cute Geek Supervisor" shall now be known as "Cute Poser-Geek Supervisor", because he is not an actual geek.

The guy may have some small computer-fu, and some of the other tags of geekdom, but he is not an actual geek. He's far too mainstream.

On a related completely unrelated theme, some phone goons have been complaining that they are being told about dress code violations by someone who is themselves violating the dress code. Stressy College Chick Shift Ops Super and Grandma Super and I deliberately did not name names, but described the shirt -- a maple leaf, right?

It also seems that my dreamscape has decided that since Cute Poser-Geek Super is usually the one talking in the background telling some sort of story or other at work, then it's going to borrow his voice for the voice-over in work-related dreams. I took a nap this evening, and woke up with a start, realizing whose voice that was doing the voice-over.

There's some new poking at auditory hallucinations and overexposure to audio stimuli such as music -- makes sense. A limited playlist gets the songs that much more stuck in the head.

Bothering Snape^h^h^h^h^h dustraven

dustraven and I are on the same shift today. He's also sitting in a booth very near to my desk. Thus, I have been going up to him and saying, "Bother! Bother!"

This has been making him giggle.

(Alas, he went home. But trystan_laryssa got moved to a booth where we can see each other, and we've been signing (mostly fingerspelling) to each other and giggling a lot.)
