CONS OF TAKE OUR CHILDREN TO WORK DAY WHICH SHOULD REALLY BE TAKE OUR MOTHERF'N ****DAUGHTERS**** BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT IN THE FIRST PLACE AND ADDING BOYS TO THE MIX TAKES ALL THE MEANING AND SIGNIFICANCE OUT OF IT:

-screaming shorties
-not being able to get any work done
-awkward conversations with coworker's offspring

PROS

-cotton candy and popcorn machines and subsequent cotton candy and popcorn lunch


i find it really hilarious that our agency isn't even making a cursory effort to teach these kids anything about our business.

they've got a moonjump set up in the atrium and a DJ and a helium tank. it's like a kiddie keg party blowout.

fucking righteous take our kids to work day cards on someecards.com

i smell pussy

Vice Magazine has a great interview with the lady behind Cat Prin aka "The Tailor of a Cat."

Fave excerpt:

Q: Do you have any pointers on how to convince a cat to wear clothes?
A: Always think about the cat’s personality beforehand, and don’t force the costumes upon them. Try to do it when they’re in a good mood, and say encouraging words to them. Cats love to be complimented. You can’t be half-assed about it either. You’ve got to be like, “OH MY GOD, you are so CUTE, you’re the best cat EVER!!” and they will actually feel it and feel better about wearing the clothes. Compliment your cat, and they will definitely get better at wearing clothes.
Full article.

I occasionally call the fat one "handsome" but other than that I don't really compliment my kitties.

I tend to talk to them like a taxi driver or a deli worker. I get home and they're clamoring about my heels trying to get food and I'll say something like: Cool it, Mac! OR Oh, you're just starving to death, aren't you pal? OR Keep your shirt on!

I know it's gruff but I like to think that the love comes through in my voice.

Questions for Discussion:
1. Do you compliment your pets? What compliments do you give them? If no, why not?
2. What is your ideal cat costume?
