Well. It's my last day at work, and I wasn't in the Minsterial office all day yesterday because I was at the Parliamentary one. So I come in to work this morning, and there is a big sign on my computer screen reading: "GIVE UP YOUR TICKET.... THERE IS NO HOPE FOR HAROLD UNLESS YOU DO!!"

Harold is my walking, talking giraffe from Hamleys. Of late, he has taken to sporting a silver alfoil cape, hat (more of a do-rag), and boots, for he is a Space Ranger Giraffe. He has also been wearing a giant orange bow around his neck, for less obvious reasons.

This morning, the detritus of his attire was scattered across my chair and desk. From the nature of the crime scene, I smell the hand of Evil Sarah (who is Awesome Fun.)

This is Harold, on the occasion of Cameron's birthday. Imagine that orange ribbon tied around his neck.

I want my giraffe back!

(Last day of Parly was quite lovely. My name is now in Hansard, but in a good way. (Evil Min.) Lots of people came in to say goodbye. The cafeteria ladies got all teary, particularly Margaret, who came out to give me a hug and told me to behave myself and try to eat better than I do now.)

He's cute! Awww - and he walks and talks, too...

Don't negotiate with the kidnappers!

Have an awesome last day at work there. I hope it goes well.

But that would mean she wouldn't be able to go live with [livejournal.com profile] majea and [livejournal.com profile] majea would CRY and be SAD and we can't have THAT.

I'm refusing to think about that silly Edinburgh place she is considering, for that matter. London or bust!

Congratulations on your last day!

And I'm NOT all sniffly at reading your post, I'm NOT, my eyes are just ... um... irritated from yesterday's exam is all...

Also, how appropriate is it that as I read your post and typed this, "The Ship Song" was playing?

Urgh. I couldn't comment on your eye post yesterday, actually. Not until I've spoken to my therapist, anyway.

Hurrah for Nick Cave!

I've been pretty choky all week. I love my job and the people here.

Who knew kidnappings could be so sweet?

Law and Order really only shows the dark side, doesn't it?

What is it about a giraffe that demands a do-rag? I used to have this little wooden giraffe (one of those carved African deals) and we used to make it little keffiyehs (is that the right word? like Yasser Arafat) out of tissues and twist-ties.

Oh no.
But what is a do-rag? Should I know?

Hee! Never negotiate with giraffe-nappers!

I hope you're having a lovely last day of work. You are awesome, and I'm glad everyone properly recognizes that.
