Everybody Loves Sushi

There's nothing like starting your week with a sushi lunch on the company tab. The staff was very excited, as most of them enjoy eating raw fish with gobs of wasabi in muddied soy sauce. They wereart1.jpg also looking forward to meeting Smithee, the new boss, but unfortunately he had to take a rain check, as an important meeting came up last minute.

I put the lunch on my company AMX, even though Mulhausen won't sign my expense report if there's even a trace of sushi on it. He believes sushi is too lavish for menial workers like me and my staff. But now Smithee will be signing my expense reports...

Company policy states that you cannot sign for a company lunch if you attend the lunch; unscrupulous employees might take advantage of a situation like that. However, since Smithee didn't attend the lunch, he can sign my expense report and I haven't broken any rules. As far as I know, nobody has ever published a policy against making up a pretend boss.   

Blair took my advice and sent Smithee a quick welcome email message. They have been flirting back and forth most of the day. I'm not sure if I should be jealous or not because that would mean I was jealous of myself, since I'm actually the one responding to her messages. And although she's flirting with the new Director, she's actually just flirting with me.

Smithee decided to invite Blair to a sushi dinner tonight, since he did not get to have his sushi lunch with the staff. Blair took a while to respond, but she finally accepted the invitation. She loves sushi. Again, I wonder if I should be jealous of myself. After all, it only took one day for Smithee to hook up a dinner with Blair. She hasn't even met him yet. It took me weeks the first time. Either I'm getting better at this or she likes Smithee better than me. Which I suppose is a compliment either way. 

Smithee is going to meet her at Teru Sushi in Studio City at 7:00. He will make her wait exactly one hour and then text her his sincerest apologies; something unexpected will come up at the office, but he'll make it up to her next time.

Blair hates waiting. She hates it more than she hates just about anything. She gets pissed off if I'm 2 minutes late. And here I get to make her wait an entire hour without any repercussions.

It's great having a buffer. I have at least five more days to enjoy it. Then I might need to look for a new job...
