Framji is shaming me with her poetry.

No words of importance or social significance, just a brief congratulations for myself.

I was named Employee of the Month today, which entitles me to the close parking spot and eight hours of vacation (which I can't use for another three months. I had to take two days of unpaid leave for my last vacation because I wasn't out of my six month probation period).

Yes, being named EOM doesn't make up for the extremely expensive health insurance that comes with a non-profit job, the small salary, long hours, or general abuse.....but it's nice and I'm leaving for the weekend feeling proud and thinking about where to go out for dinner.

Congratulations, B. It's such an honor to be recognized for the GOOD, important work you do. You're clearly a valued member of the org. I'll proudly sport a "my friend is employee of the month" bumper sticker on my car ;)
