A Little This and That

*So, I took a couple of days off from the blog, as I had yesterday off from work.  I normally don’t post on weekends, anyway, but I just wasn’t feeling up to it.  Tired, and drug out, I think it’s just a delayed reaction from all the tension. 

Anyway, I felt like maybe I should post a couple of fun little things that I did for a co-worker, that I’ll call “R”.  She always used to talk about how she’d lose her “Train of Thought”….

So I made her one.

Well, technically, I didn’t make the train, I just painted the little “thought cloud” on it.  It was a spur-of-the-moment craft project, so I didn’t paint the whole thing.  I did this one a few years back, at the old job (we’ve worked together for 10 years now, and she was one of the original people to jump to the company I work at now) and she’s had it with her ever since, even bringing it with her to the new job.  I love that she still gets a kick out of it! 

So, when I was shopping in a second-hand store a few weeks back, I came across something else that I had to get for this same lady.  Just because my brain thinks that way.

Yep.  A “Think Tank”.  It was sitting all by its lonesome on a shelf of sweaters (cause that’s normally where you keep the tanks, right?) when I saw it.  My first thought was “Yup, think tank.  I’ve got to get that for R.”

No joke.  When I say that I think sideways, I usually mean it!

Needless to say, R loved it, and it sits now with her “Train of Thought” on the front of her desk.  Conversation starters, that’s for sure.

  1. Those are awesome! I love the way your brain thinks! I bet she smiles every time she sees those on her desk! 🙂

    • *snicker* actually I like my job, and the women I work with (It’s ALL women here). But if I find one, I’ll definitely keep you in mind!

    • 😀 Well, to get back on track, I think I’ll conduct a little experiment with stations set up for training.

      (sorry) *cringe* I guess the pun is mightier when it’s weird.

    • Ah! I’ve seen those! My mom used to have one hanging in her kitchen that my dad made for her, but it got lost somewhere along the way. Thanks!

  2. I’d like a model male roe-deer, so I can pass it to someone else when I have had enough! (buck passing and all that)
    I love the Think Tank and the Train of thought!
