it's a good gig
  1. being paid to hang out with your friends
  2. free drinks whenever I want

  4. excessive time dedicated to sociological observations of the strange and amazing environment that is the first floor of the Reg
  5. slow motion friendships with the Reg-ulars

  7. running a Twitter account for an inanimate object that has over 200 followers

  8. "accidentally" dropping pastries on the floor for snacks later
