farewell, Quidsi!

Yesterday I left my job at Quidsi and my boss created this magical email in the style of Diapers.com, the main website I wrote for at Quidsi. It's so cool... I feel like it's the kind of thing Larry Tate, Darrin's boss on Bewitched, might do. And who doesn't dream of having a Larry Tate kind of boss? I think this has to be one of the coolest things I've ever received in all my 29 years (except for the gift of life, of course, and health insurance).

Here are some more highlights from my time at Quidsi...

My poor desk was the victim of some good pranks:

Filming a "Call Me Maybe" video (those swivel chairs proved to be elegant backup dancers):

Beautiful oatmeal creations that soon became a dark obsession!

The odd things I found in my desk... look closely, you'll see a shard of chocolate and not one, but four name tags that say "Diana":

The shoes that lived under my desk... they were always trying to escape. Fools!

The beautiful view from Jersey City in this photo I like to call "Reflections: The Reflection":

Knitting class gone horribly wrong:

A funny bus ride from Jersey City to Manhattan that took about 2.5 hours:

The delish food truck lunches that resulted in post-lunch fatigue that could only be cured by having more food:

A Friday night email strategy discussion that resulted in this lovely, post-modern sprinkles creation. It's a political statement on society and obesity:

Speaking of candy, this one time I found a Nerd that looked like a top hat...

Competitions entered... and lost...

The kitchen shelves... and bathroom?

I discovered this intruder on the paper towels... took a photo and then ran for my life:

The nautical party! Finally a celebration where one can wear stripes freely (or should I say "show your stripes" hehee) and dream of a future with a boat captain husband:

A birthday cake I destroyed in transit...

And then finally got right the next year!

A "thank you" board we created in the kitchen... really as a way to thank ourselves for creating it:

A sad balloon created by one of the designers at work (Alex, if you're reading this, hello!):

The Book Club bake sale that raised funds to send me to dance school:

Mr. Softee... a time-honored, after-lunch tradition:

IMG_6080

Last Milano's lunch... best food in all of Jersey City!

IMG_6256

All the Post-Its I found in my desk... I was preparing for a post-apocalyptic world where Post-Its have ceased to exist and humans are forced to write important notes on their finger tips...

Last bowl of a traditional Quidsi breakfast... sugary cereal!
