Cute little beast you got there :-)
And a clean'n'shiny uncluttered desk..

I was talking some months ago with a woman I know, during the conversation I asked her if her boss was taking all his secretaries out to diner, [it was secretaries week celebrations]. She felt, somehow, offended by my using the term secretary. She corrected me in a very cold tone; we are not secretaries, we are asistants. Then she went on to explain to me all the levels in the administrative-secretarial-assistants ladder.
Needless to say, I will never call anyone that 9-letter word again.
