We do these welcome lunches here at work. New employees join the firm and we - reps from HR, IT, Recruiting & Marketing - take them to lunch the first day to get 'em acclimated.

Let me explain. Yesterday, we went to the Grand Lux Cafe at Michigan and Ohio -- it's got that contrived elegance of an upscale-ish chain, but the food is good.
"I'll have a Diet Coke," I say to the actor/waiter, who is bouncing at the end of our table.
"OUTSTANDING!" he replies.
Outstanding? Diet Coke? Is outstanding?
No. No. No.
Outstanding is a naked oily massage administered by that dude who plays Sawyer from Lost.
Outstanding is NOT Diet Coke.
What's your definition of outstanding?
I am listening to: Smashing Pumpkins - 1979
I am reading: Between books still
And I am: Outstanding!
