In an effort to keep things fresh in the office, we moved seats last week. Nic & Ryan totally have a bromance going on and are now sitting together in their own little island. They are right next to the giant column and have declared themselves “The Nation of Mole.” In Ryan’s words, “If Name.com had a face, we would be the mole” because they sit right next to the column.
Anyway, Nic and Ryan can both be total punks (yeah that’s right, i said it and often screw around with me. For example, pretty much every time i’m making toast or a sandwich in the kitchen i turn my head for 2 seconds and my toast or sandwich has mysteriously vanished from sight. Nic pulled a fast one on me recently – I fell for it hook line & sinker, so I decided he should get a taste of his own medicine…
Miss Caroline, my partner in crime, and I wrapped the boys’ desks in newspaper (with as many pieces of tape as possible to make it super obnoxious to take apart) and then we printed out a zillion copies of Cindy Crawford’s mole and wrapped all of their belongings in it. Ryan admitted it was, “nicely done.” +1 BURN POINT for Flatware Cove!
It’s not like we’re not working. These are just the thing that happen during the course of work. So Nick in Dev plugged the URL to Jared’s About Us pic into Google’s image search (the one where you click on the camera in the search bar,) and the world’s most brutal search engine came back with the results of “visually similar images:”
Well that’s funny, as not one of us has ever–not even during the latter part of a beer friday–seen Jared through these Goggles.
So…we tried it with Fro. Patrick “P-Fro” Ramsey is a handsome youth, a real charismatic leader, so the results would be sure to turn up “visually similar images” of the like.
And then Henrik found a beloved image taken from a screenshot of Owen in our Romantic Comedy spoof. This is good.
Have fun. Here’s how to humble anyone you know:

In a desperate attempt to get his thesis written, Jared spent most of last week checked into the Embassy Suits downtown. I stopped by for a quick drink and snapped the shot below then emailed the team asking them to fill in the blank….
