Buttercup Goes to Work

You've seen Buttercup at play many times. But rarely does the work Buttercup emerge, which is ironic because I spend a great deal of time and energy at work. All play and no work doesn't reflect me very well. Most of the time any photos taken of me at work would be me answering email, talking on the phone or sitting in a meeting and taking copious notes (I am a major note taker and doodler, too). Not so interesting.

But today I went to a press conference where Mayor Bloomberg spoke concerning a project that has been consuming lots of work time in the last few months. Press conferences with the Mayor are not a regular part of my job, but I thought it would be fun to share this one. There were lots of the "regular" press there and I felt quite at home snapping pictures, as half of the room had cameras and cell phones and were taking pictures throughout the event.  

The setting is a taxi garage in Brooklyn. It was a very neat and clean garage, but I had flashes where I thought Danny DeVito would emerge any minute. Any "Taxi" fans in Buttercupland?

Now it's back to the more routine at work. But it's ten days before Christmas and I am officially drifting into a festive state of mind. I expect my Shutterfly cards any minute and am in the midst of package wrapping and ordering a few last minute things online. Bought candy cane green tea and about to have a leisurely cup of it. Toasting you all with happy Thursday wishes!

What a celeb you are meeting with the Mayor and all. I'm thinking you have a pretty important job there. Candy Cane green tea sounds so good. I'll have to look for that in the store. Have a wonderful Thursday!

That makes me want to curl up on the couch with a warm blanket and watch old reruns of those great shows.
