|This morning at the office|
This was publicly acknowledged. Did you not see it? Heroes of the Earth and all?
I will skip all of the accolading and just say that, bottom line, we were awarded an epic award of epic proportions.
It's a $25 gift card.
It all started a couple of weeks back. He brought home this Earth Day challenge thing from the office. It was not for the weak, and we, the four of us, collectively toiled away until we were confident we'd done our best. He took our result back to the office and, to be honest, I kinda forgot about it.
... until he came home with the announcement of heroicness.
So never mind all the bicycle commuting and all the recycling and all the xeriscaping and such. We can complete a darn good word search! Yeah, it was an Earth Day word search. FORTY whopping words. The twist was, we didn't know what the forty Earth Day words were, yet we needed to find them.
Also, so the non-heroes wouldn't feel bad I suppose, everyone in Magnum's office was given a nice pen made from recycled water bottles. They were doled out to each department in huge thick plastic ziploc bags... *sigh*hello!*...
While I'm basking in victory, I'm dealing with mixed emotions. See, with all this darn power comes responsibility. We've got a reputation to uphold now. We're role models now!
|Our Christmas trees ... in May|
Yet I have a strong unyielding urge to do something not environmentally friendly, not prudent, not responsible, not sensible, not unwasteful...
I SO badly want to have a cathartic ceremonial long underwear burn right now.
Darn platform of public scrutiny.
