14 days to go til Christmas break but all sorts of ailments are hitting the MB workforce. Everyone has got paper cuts from boisterous boxes and evil envelopes, but more unusual complaints such as 'envelope thumb' (where the end of the thumb gets a shiny spot from pressing down thousands of envelopes), and 'wrapper's knee' (the lack of chairs at MB HQ means the person doing the wrapping has to kneel down) are also spreading like wildfire. Marv has developed 'threader's squint' as she had to thread hundreds of tiny gift-tags with fine gold ribbon. Ling is suffering from 'Boy Band overload' as she has not managed to convince anyone that Green Day would be just as uplifting as George Michael as suitable music to work by.
