    UPDATE: In the interest of space above, I gave Mr. Magazine Time short shrift. This post is for those of you who are curious about what else he is doing in his workday while you actually work during yours!

    1. Performs gangsta moves in the cubicles of frantically working employees. Mr. Magazine Time is a highly educated upper class white professional in his 40s, who was born with a silver spoon up his (hi, kids!). I cringed to hear the daily cry behind me, “Hey-HEY! It’s HOMEY in the HIZZOUSE!” Then he would bust out his gangsta moves in my cubicle, which would morph into his cowboy moves, in which he spun invisible pistols and holstered them after shooting and blowing away smoke.

    2. Paranoid that employees might be Internet surfing instead of working, Mr. Magazine Time dedicates a large portion of his day to creeping around the four floors of the building to spy into cubicles. Once I had to use his computer. He had been Internet surfing.

    3. Protects the universe from a baby snake that had gotten into our conference room. With a manly scream of terror heard on all four floors, Mr. Magazine Time stomped it to death and left the carcass there for someone else to clean up.

    4. Sits in his car listening to Beyonce.

    Today Gay Panda is building a Fabulous Time Machine in order to whisk this useless man back to survive in the time of Grok. There will be room for one more, so write in the reason why you think your boss/coworker deserves a seat, and I’ll post whom we’ll be waving bon voyage to next week.

          For Christmas present him with a small, tastefully wrapped box. When he opens it, finds it empty and says, "What is this?" you calmly respond, "Your dignity. Pew Pew."

            canio6, I would love to do that. That this company keeps him on is insane, but the Big Bosses are very nice, non-confrontational people, and tend to think that if you ignore a problem, it magically goes away. So Mr. Magazine Time has the run of the place. I don't know if you've ever seen the show The Office, but sometimes I would watch the character of the boss and shiver with recognition.

              That would be frightening. It makes you wonder how some people have survived so long.

                The Big Bosses wouldn't do any better than Mr. Magazine Time back in Time of Grok. "If I just don't LOOK at the slavering tiger about to pounce on me, then the slavering tiger goes AWAY!" They are both such decent, hard-working guys, but allowing Mr. Magazine Time free rein because they don't want to deal with him has been a disaster for the company. Forget how many employees that he's chased off, he's alienating multimillion dollar accounts!

                Pew-Pew!

                  I would like to put my current boss in a locked room with Mr. Magazine Time and see who'd want out first(or kill the other or themself). My boss is just an annoying <insert slang word for vagina>. I would use it but I know that word offends most.

                    oh, anjelevil, if only your warning had come fifteen years ago when I tried to dismount a NordicTrak, or whatever that brand is. It was ugly. Hope your back gets better quickly!

                        • I'm published, but the book became inaccessible due to the publisher going bankrupt right after it was released.
                          I don't know how the copyright stuff works, but are you going to re-publish?? I have a cousin-in-law who is an editor at an indie joint and I might be able to hook you up.

                            When I'm writing a book, I tend to read much more nonfiction than fiction. The last four years of my life were engulfed by a series that was wonderfully fun to work on, but meant I rarely read anything that wasn't directly related to research for it. I do recommend Sheri S. Tepper's The True Game. While I haven't cared for some of her books, that one blew me away. When she hits the right note, she HITS it. Perfect distraction from doldrums!

                              I honestly don't know who holds the rights now, as the publisher went bankrupt and cut off communication with its authors. So I'm unlikely to republish that book, but in a way, it's all right. I've been so involved with the series since then, which is going through its final edits where I bang my hammer about in untidy chapters and find that YET AGAIN, in my 12th or 13th book or whatever I'm on now, I have managed to misspell murmured. What sort of books does the indie joint handle? Most of what I write is young adult magical realism.
