During this morning's news meeting:
While I was talking a spider crawled down from the ceiling toward my head. Carol flipped out. She started flailing her arms and yelling, "T.J., there's a spider, like *right* over your head. Oh my God! Don't move back, it's gonna land on you. AHHH!"
And when it did land on me, on my neck, she had to turn away.
It took her five full minutes to compose herself.
Also, during the meeting Luke mentioned putting me on salary again, in front of everyone, so I can take advantage of the 401k/ profit sharing plan. We had a meeting with the insurance people and I was there with my complex insurance manual. How bizarre would it be for me to invest in a 401k? Christ.
