Whorin'

Today’s Ludic Log: I dunno what this one is. It started out as a semi-serious short story, but it read really pretentious, so I changed it to yet another "confessions of the self-deluded" entry. I have no idea if it's good or if it really sucks.

Side note of interest to no one: many of the details of this story, including the guy who brings his crush homemade sausages and someone leaving his keys as a flirtation device/sexual invitation, are straight out of the ol' dream journal.

Toi-toi

Okay, so, the bathrooms in my office are being knocked down and explanded. Which means, for the next month and a half, we have to use the bathrooms out on the factory floor. Which is a big pain in the ass, because not only are they much farther away, but we have to put in earplugs just to go take a piss. Plus, at least twice a day, I find myself walking towards the office men's room, only to have to stop myself and go "Ha ha! Hey idiot, you're going the wrong way! AGAIN!"

Anyway, I was talking to Allison about this, and she says that the women's bathroom in the eastern half of the building is one of those swanky "lounge"-style terlets, with couches and magazine racks and all that hoo-hah. Amazingly, she also says that there are MICROWAVES and TABLES in there, and that some of the workers DRINK COFFEE AND EAT in the bathroom! Am I wrong, or is this fucking nuts? Why would you want to eat food in a room where people piss and shit all day?!?
