Sweet like chocolate


So remember when I said in this post here that there was some juicy office Christmas gossip where some intern slept with her manager? This happened long before I joined the company, by the way and I finally found out who the intern was today (albeit inadvertently). I think I have one of those kinda faces that people just feeling like opening up to regardless of whether I wanna hear it or not. Or maybe it’s my natural ‘gossip allure’ that draws them in… Who knows? Hehehe!

Anyway, I was have a mega lazy day in the office today  (Happy Hump Day folks!) and figured it was ‘chocolate-o’-clock’ so went for a little wander to the vending machines with one of the girls I’m working on a project with.
We were nattering away when she decided to open up to me and tell me about this ‘affair’. My ears pricked and I suddenly perked up! (Oh did I mention how much I love gossip? Not to spread, just to listen to). 
So it turns out the manager was single back then, they’d fancied each other and they did sleep with each other that night of the Christmas party and many nights after that (“Oooohhh juicy” I thought). They were in a relationship but things were kinda strained between them and they were ‘on/off’……bla bla bla... At this point I was thinking probably the exact same thing you are now.“Dear goodness! This is boring!!! Does this even qualify as gossip? Is this what I’d been waiting ages to hear about?” 
Of course I didn’t say this out loud to her! Even I am not that stupid…lol! Talk about over-promising and under-delivering!!! Okay, they were in a relationship and had relationship problems – nothing unusual/exciting there. I wanted ‘Basic Instinct’ shenanigans not ‘Coronation Street’/’Days Of Our Lives’ storylines. *sigh* Back to work I go… I paid for my chocolates and headed back to my desk. Figured I’d treat myself to two chocolate bars instead of one to make up for the disappointing story – actually,  who am I kidding? Lol! I was gonna have two anyway…

LOL! That's kind of like reading an EXCELLENT book and being disappointed when you get to the end only to find it's setting up a series. Heh.

YAY! There's no such thing as too much chocolate. That girl has AMAZING eyes in that last photo. If only I had eyelashes that long. SIGH. ;)

I also have a gossip allure, and people open up to me, but that's kinda a good thing in my HOLLYWOOD SPY business :P

I must have chocolate o'clock now! Great story! Gossip does bring out the best in us, especially when it juicy. We can always make things up if its not though right? LOL
