While most people bring me t-shirts from their travels (they know I never go anywhere and feel sorry for me), one of my 'bosses' thinks outside of the box. She recently went to a conference in New Orleans and brought me this:
I apologize for the poor quality of the photograph, as it was taken with my phone. It is a Voodoo doll. Complete with one White Pin (Good Wishes for friends) and one Black Pin (Evil Wishes for non-friends). I have pinned it up (with neutral green and yellow tacks) near my computer. I feel humbled by the power that has been handed me. Her youngest daughter, G, who draws me pictures and entertains me no-end when she's in the office, was quite upset that her mother was giving me this powerful totem of good and evil. I had to call her to tell her that I was okay and that I was only going to use it as a decoration. Mwwwahahaha.
