NOTES FROM THE CORPORATE INSIDE, CONTINUED

The next set of entries is from Day 2 of Anne's "spy" notebook.

Last night I memorized the dress code list provided by Best Practice. We are expected to wear well-kept, well-pressed garments. No halters, bare midriffs, something called Reefs, or Birkenstocks (as mentioned before). No problem. My Jones New York suits and Aerosole pumps fit the bill.

To blend in further, I dusted off my briefcase and packed it with my typical supplies (pen, notebook, night-vision goggles, and ortho-chlorobenzalmalanonitrile).

I googled this ortho-chloro stuff. Turns out, it’s tear gas. I seriously doubt Anne could acquire tear gas…right? I realize people buy babies, bomb-making equipment and guns off the net…but tear gas? I’m going to check her briefcase tomorrow.

I have poured over the “deck” that Broken Spirit provided me. The language has struck me as quite foreign, so I have been taking notes on their local jargon. I have quickly found the value-add of clarity by bucketing my surveillance into three major workstreams: targets, storyline, analysis. I will gain key transparent takeaways that can later be synthesized into one silo.

With the exception of the misuse of “silo”, (siloization, of course!), Anne is tracking. In fact, her rapid leveraging of office buzzwords is one of her spikes. Kudos!

I just returned from several training sessions. I will download later as it is now 5pm and avoid raising suspicion, I must leave. But to summarize: I believe I have stumbled on a clue regarding my mission.

I'm going to start skipping some of Anne's entries as this is getting tedious. I'll pull the most interesting from now on.

So, you sound like a well-paid temp, That Girl. Jones of New York. Is daddy paying the bills? I'm thinking you're a spoiled and possibly naughty girl.
