You had me at “nice”

Presents from work colleagues are usually not something we look forward to at Christmas time. We have all been given the coffee mug with smiley faces or cartoon characters declaring that they run on caffeine; a set of smelly pens, containers of paper clip or other fiddley desk packets of assorted pretzels, an assortment of herbal teas or another snow globe to add to the 47 snow globes on the recipient’s filing cabinet.

Today, however, I received a gift that showed my colleague has a clear insight into my very soul. Well, either that, or I complain a lot…

Anyway, the erstwhile Minerva gifted me the following:

It is proudly displayed on the back of my computer monitor, facing the glass walls for all the library to view. At least they can’t say they weren’t warned!

Got to love that erstwhile Minerva.
