If you give a moose a muffin

If I know one thing about headbands and elephants....it's that they make people happy and you should buy them this holiday from the Make Our Day Shop.  Also I know the background is awesome, thanks for mentioning it though. L to R: Brittany, Teacha Katie, Morgan, Megan, Laura

So as of now, Teacha has left the building.  If you had my phone number, forget it.  If you are tired of me calling you anyway, rejoice.
Before I left I had the pleasure of rounding up my Fall 2015 Make Our Day staff for a little pre departure pow wow.

This was not a typical meeting as (like everything in my life) like to have everything going on at once.  No powerpoints here.  Just lots of ideas, lengthy side-notes, a hula hoop, booze, and oh wait, here.  There is a method to the madness.

A glance at the table alone will tell you what a Type B can do lacking supervision and traditional workflow structure.  The sprawling takeover of the table started innocently enough.  Plates.  We need plates right, didn’t you read item 1 on the agenda?

And since this meeting concerns Thailand, it would be downright disrespectful, Buddha no happy, to offer any fewer than 5 sauces.

So snacks. (Insert scene from The Jerk..”that’s all I need”)

Then headbands. (snacks and headbands, that’s all I need)

Then the Make Our Day Shop holiday goodies. (ok just these snacks, those headbands…and you get it)

Throw in an abundance of new and foreign (to Teacha) technology including a selfie stick and all bets are off.  If you give a Moose a Muffin….you probably shouldn’t come back until she’s finished with it. I hope the person with (moderate…question mark) OCD who generously allowed us to use this room doesn’t see this.

I keep moving out of the frame of the selfie stick and I don’t know what to do about it…Morgan says stop moving…hmmm

You can hold the selfie stick up high…

but really I suggest you give it to the professional photographer to hold. Thanks Megan for making it look super easy…and if you’re reading this thinking “well it is super easy”…just shut it.
