My boss and I were staring at a pile of "I [heart] New York" tourist maps from the early 70s, trying to figure out how to arrange the notes field of the catalog record. 

Boss: I'm not sure how I'm going to note this heart symbol. This program isn't terribly sophisticated.
Me: You know, on the internet, people sometimes write a "<" and the number 3.
Boss: What?
Me: [draws "<3" on a post-it]
Boss: ...Veronica, that's terrible. I'm an old man. Why do they even do such a thing.
Me: Kids these days! 
Boss: I think I'll just put "love" in brackets.

Haha, he's so amazing. He says stuff like, "we have a blue million of these. Kick my tires if you have any questions."

I HOPE YOU HAD A HAPPY T-GIVING IN SNGAPORE! Excuse my exuberance, it's my parents anniversary and even though it's the fast season, I am a little drunk.
