Days the Man Of Mystery who shares my cubicle has actually shown his face at work this week: 2
Minutes he was at his desk for: About 30 (pretty much on the phone or sending e-mails for the whole time; nothing he couldn’t do remotely. Amazing how messy his desk is, for someone who is rarely at it. I wonder if he’s a bit like Pete Gibbons in Office Space)
Oh… number of different brands of deodorant he has on his desk: 3
