The only thing worse than having to fill in for our vacationing Media Buyer is having to fill in for our vacationing Media Buyer slash Office Maven – “maven” meaning Doer Of All Things that keep the office in smooth running order and keep all aasmanites smiling, happy and, most importantly, sugar-fed. Yowza.

We knew real quick that one person was not going to fill little Heather’s large shoes.

And so...

We got Val and Douma on the inner complexities of media booking


Corey on fun-tastic coffee duty


Trevor (aka Grandpa T) on general office merriment provider


Nicolas on cheery customer service supplier


Douma on candy fix dispenser (and ingester)


and Al on mail sorter (sorry Al, but someone’s gotta do it)


And together, as a big round whole, for all our efforts, all we wound up feeling was a big round hole in the middle of our exhausted, barely still beating hearts.

Heather is back tomorrow and is hereby denied any and all future vacation requests. Enjoy your tan while you’ve got it, Heather!


Plum worn out,

That’s a great photomontage!

It’s great to know how much my lil’ sister and her work is valued at her place of employment.

You’re not the only ones who missed her!

It is great that you were missed so much Heather! Keep up the good work! Hope you had a great vacation!
