Max Maxfield is looking forward to having the prime parking space next to the main entrance.
Well, I don't know what to say. I don't have anything prepared. I promised myself that I wouldn't cry. Words cannot express what an honor it is to be acknowledged as the (unofficial) EE Times/UBM employee of the month.
Of course, the honor would have been all the greater if someone who dons the undergarments of authority and strides the corridors of power at EE Times/UBM had actually bestowed this award on me. Sad to relate, however, they are all engaged in loftier pursuits, so I was obliged to confer this accolade upon myself.
It was a small, unpretentious ceremony. I only wish my mother could have been there, but it would have been too much to ask her to fly all the way from England.
It's also going to be jolly nice to have the prime parking space next to the main entrance. It's unfortunate that acquiring this space means I will have to rise early and get here before anyone else. As soon as I arrive, I will whip out my "Employee of the Month" sign and place it in front of my truck, as illustrated above.
Now, I don't want to give anything away before it's been confirmed, but I think there's a strong chance I might be presenting myself with an MVEOAT (most valuable employee of all time) award in the not-so-distant future. Don't mention this to anyone until it's been confirmed, but I think you're safe to start ordering the party hats and favors.
With regard to party favors, you know the ones I mean. When you blow them, they shoot out and make an annoying sound. I always carry a few with me when travelling (along with my genuine false wooden moustache) in case of an emergency, but -- for the life of me -- I cannot remember what they are called. Any ideas?
