Whoo hoo I’m famous today at work

 Now Appearing in the company Newsletter….

   [info]elfkat, a benefit plan specialist in the Operations Support Planning department, 
earned 12 ribbons (from first to fourth place) in four years at the Los Angeles County Fair. 
She won the judges over with her skills in silversmithing, glass fusing and gourd drum and alternative metal (niobium) creations.

I’m my own personal drummer

My sporran has 3 thistle tassels which hit my sporran when I walk. I’m inducing giggles around the department because normally I’m more likely to scare someone because I walk very quietly. Everyone can hear my personal snare drum today. Not as bad as at Cam’s funeral at All Saints but pretty loud anyway. If I ever wanted to know my walking rhythm today is the day.

I remember my beloved dead.

I am not happy!

I came to work in full Highland regalia minus the claymore, and people keep calling me “cute” and “adorable”. That is not some one dressed in the garb of a group of fiercesome warriors wants to hear. They weren’t known as the “Fighting Ladies from Hell” for nothing. Now I wish I’d borrowed

‘s claymore. Grrrr!
