movin' on up, so to speak

Yesterday at work they gave me the key to the bathroom. (The bathroom is outside the actual office so all the offices on the 24th floor can use it). I wonder if being given a key to the crapper is a precursor to being given a full-time job offer. Or at least a raise?

Speaking of work, what do I get for the middle aged paralegal whose name I drew in the Secret Santa thing? I’ve never been a Secret Santa before. I've never spoken a single word to her and didn’t even know who she was until I asked someone. Apparently she likes cats and jewelry. I have $20 to spend. I don’t think I can pick out jewelry for this woman because I don't know her tastes, so it’ll have to be something cat-related. Oh yeah, and in years past she's gotten a gift card and complained that it was too impersonal. I wonder if a couple sacks of kitty litter would be inappropriate?

A gift card is the perfect gift in general, especially for someone you dont know. Why does she want something personal for a secret santa when the whole object is to get a random person something random?

Congrats on not having to ask to go take a crap!

I have the same issue at my office and am going to get a middle-aged woman a nice bottle of wine.

Get her a dildo... It may be a little awkward when she opens it, but it will be good for a laugh and she definitely won't be able to complain that its too impersonal.

Every cat person deserves a dog - a big one.

I'm not a cat person, but maybe she'd like a subscription to Cat Fancy. It's the gift that keeps giving all year long!

Bed Bath and Beyond has these little cat-shaped ring holders (you put it by the sink and put your rings on it while you do the dishes). Not totally impersonal and its at least quasi-useful. I think they are $5-10, so you could supplement it with a 2007 cat calendar (look at her desk to see if she prefers day-to-day or a wall calendar).
