Another conversation with my boss

10 May

You may have previously read about how weird my 57-year-old boss is. He called me at 10:40 t0night:


Boss: Hey, L-Jazz, how are ya?

Me: What happened to L-Train?

Boss: I can try new names, I’m your boss. How are ya?

Me: Well, I’m working on it.

Boss: Well, I didn’t really have a direction for this conversation. James Spader? Does he help?

Me: No, he doesn’t help with death. I’m sorry I looked up James Spader at work, it’s just that–

Boss: No, L-Train, I get it. I look up that girl from that British show, I think it’s called Torchwood.

Me: Never seen it.

Boss:  Are you drinking?

Me: Yes. Well, thanks for calling.

Boss: Good talk. Maybe we can skip work and get beers next week? You haven’t laughed in awhile.

Me: Beer would help.

Boss: Great, we can get the whole lab to go. See you next week. Now would be a good time to try writing that erotica like I told you. Sex sells.

Me: Dude, Dave, that’s still weird. Bye now.

Boss: Bye!

    Yeah, your boss is weird. Boss, if you’re reading this… you’re a weird dude.

      Oh lord, he doesn’t read this. At least I don’t think he does. Boss, if you’re reading this…stop reading this.

    Wow. That is all.

      He tries. He’s a scientist, though, and those folks can be weirder than us folks.

        Hey, as a science gal myself, I take offens–well, wait a second, I guess you’re right. We are weird. Just forget I said anything… :)

    Least he has good taste in shows… Torchwood is a good series. *_* the captain/ leader guy is cute…

    Oh yeah, boss if you read this… You are a creep with good taste in tv and blogs… Other than that no…

      We’ll show him! Thanks for the comment.

    i’m with your boss here – the girl in torchwood is hot


    • La La May 11, 2012 at 7:15 am #

      I’ll look her up.


      • Kyle May 11, 2012 at 7:31 am #

        she looks a little like you, now i come to think of it


        • dee dee May 11, 2012 at 2:14 pm #

          hmmm….maybe that’s creepy that the girl looks a little like Lauren and her boss thinks she’s hot??

    Do you work in Scranton?


    • La La May 11, 2012 at 7:04 am #

      Hahaha, I often feel like it!


  7. Frivolous Monsters May 11, 2012 at 7:00 am #

    I still don’t get your updates… So he thinks you look like Eve Myles from Torchwood? She’s the biggest @rse-kicking Welsh action woman going… I’m not sure who number two is on this list…


    • La La May 11, 2012 at 7:11 am #

      Interestingly, I didn’t say that he said that, but he has said that on another occasion. He said we have similar facial expressions or something.


      • Frivolous Monsters May 11, 2012 at 8:03 am #

        From your picture above I imagine you as more or a young Liv Tyler, but still… In this country those sort of conversations would get your boss sacked! And I am (supposedly) a scientist!


        • La La May 11, 2012 at 8:09 am #

          Wow thanks haha. As long as it isn’t Fergie.

          Damn. I knew a scientist would read this. When I lived there my boss was just as odd, so, perhaps I am just a favorite to the weird ones.

    I think that is what phones who display the caller are for!

    Seems like a nice fella if a little intense……

    What do you do?!
    And here’s news, unless there is an emergency organ transplant happening and you are the one with the kidney in the cooler, there’s no reason for your boss to call you at 10:40 at night.



  11. dee dee May 11, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

    He is weird.


  12. Madame Weebles May 11, 2012 at 2:34 pm #

    You win. Your boss is way weirder than mine.


  13. Kourtney Heintz May 13, 2012 at 1:09 am #

    I love that your boss calls you at home. And the dialogue he provides is truly awe-inspiring. ;)
