I don't blog about work. It's a conscious decision. I love my job. I love my coworkers. And I really don't want to get fired. I'm breaking my silence, however, for a very important announcement.
My team has won the Lexington Public Library's Pimp my Bookcart Competition!
There were 7 entries, including two buses, a Where the Wild Things Are jungle (which got second place - Go Beaumont!!), a zombie survival cart, a yellow submarine, and a full "Game of life" Board. But our Shep took the blue ribbon.I, along with 3 other ladies representing the Business Office and Human Resources took the "green" theme to heart, making this Hungarian Sheep Dog ("Shep Herding Books")from cardboard, a milk jug and 2 liter, paper towel roll, bubble wrap, and lots and lots and lots of shredded newspaper. The rules of the competition require the cart be functional as a book cart (Shep's left side is open - I didn't get a picture) and be restored to its original condition following the competition.
Shep will be entered into the national competition next week, so wish us luck!
