… to the beautiful, talented, smart, courageous Ms Swear-a-lot [a.k.a. Lauren] who starts her fabbie new job today.

I won’t wish her luck because she won’t need it – but I will give her my best wishes because she’s bloody tops and I’m so happy for her.

Go knock em dead like you’ve done to the rest of us.

You’ve been eating too much sugar again haven’t you Andy?

Comment by Rob

Excellent news.

Comment by Lee Hill

rob, what a sweetie you are. thanks for your congratulations. i tell you, it’s gonna be a wild ride – you think BDAs are bad – wait ’til you join an academic institution! ha!

strumpet, andy? by ‘strumpet’, you do, of course mean, amazingly intelligent, articulate, forthright and endearing woman, don’t you dear? 🙂

Comment by lauren

Great news Lauren and to continue acting as Andy’s translator, “strumpet” are all the attributes you mention and more. It’s actually a compliment, well that’s what he tells people he calls it to anyway 🙂

Comment by Bazza

Well done Lauren, hope it goes well!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

thanks everyone! and thanks bazza for continuing to translate on andy’s behalf. even when he’s not paying you to!

Comment by lauren

Actually, Bazza is paying Andy these days. Sort of. Thank god it’s not in proportion to his height or we’d be broke 🙂

Comment by Rob

Good luck and well done Lauren.

Comment by Marcus

Marcus. It’s lovely to have you back. I’ve tried getting hold of you but timing/timezones have worked against me.

Mark my words, I’ll get hold of you soon – though that has come out sounding like a threat, sorry.

Comment by Rob

I am here. In the shed.

Comment by Marcus

Nicely done Lauren. Hope the first day is good..

Comment by Will

thanks marcus and will – aren’t you all just lovely! the first day has been quite crazy, but i think it will be OK. i’ll get to subvert the organisation into using flickr, basecamp, del.icio.us and a blog. heh.

Comment by lauren

strumpet is the highest fucking accolade a chick can have short of being called mrs boucher or ex mrs boucher but i know youre aiming for both those titles soon you naughty little minx

oi marcus, burn the shed and come and play

Comment by andy@cynic

I have dependencies.

Comment by Marcus

well stop taking drugs and you wont fucking care about the job or the fucking shed 🙂

Comment by andy@cynic

seeing as i wouldn’t be changing my name, even if i was married to you andy, i’m taking strumpet as the highest accolade, so thank you sweetie. ha! 😉

marcus, the shed is the perfect place to make those G&G-style cards, remember? go on – do it. [if you can’t enjoy work, at least embezzle from it :)]

Comment by lauren

it’s that kinda talk that’s got the economy in such a bad shape…”stop taking (and buying) drugs”?!…

think of those farmers in the pasheer valley,
mr Boucher, those poor fanatical farmers

where is the love??

Comment by n to the h

Comment by Marcus

bocher? i know youre bad at spelling but spell my surname right you fuking cnt 🙂

Comment by andy@cynic

Omitting u from both elements of the epithet would have made a better line.

Comment by Copywriting 101

omitting dodds from the vicinity of young girls would make a safer planet you pedantic bastard so you keep your views to your self and ill feel free to take the piss anyway i fcking want, alright?

fck, it does look better. cnt.

Comment by andy@cynic

It’s almost back to normal … how quickly we slip back into our old ‘roles’ … how quickly Andy forgets I still have a lot to do and shouldn’t be on here 🙂

Comment by Rob

Congratulations Lauren! Um…where are you working now?

Comment by Emily

Thank you Emily for bringing a sense of decorum back to the proceedings. Now, stop using my blog to procrastinate AND GET BACK TO THE PACKING 🙂

Comment by Rob
