We’ve had an awful lot of pranking going on recently. From a game of “Icing” that has carried out for weeks to an Ebenism-centered Halloween. We thought we would share some of our laughs for everyone to enjoy.
Now if you’re asking yourself, like many of our team did, just what is Icing? Allow me to explain. Icing is the act of getting someone to unknowingly open something containing a Smirnoff Ice. The receiver of this gift then must get on one knee and proceed to consume the entire bottle of liquid goodness.
It all started on Peter Popp’s first day when as part of the scavenger hunt through the office he was instructed to meet Erik and Me in the lobby. We wanted to welcome him with a gift to our team, which of course, was a gift of Smirnoff. He has since been sharing the love by hiding Ices and trapping people into discovering them. There may be no stopping him…
Goddess of Light
For those who are not aware, Eben has a great love of rearranging furniture in our office. Recently he has had the joy of selecting many lamps to grace us with bright light. Much to our designer Brook’s delight she came to work one morning to find she was the “goddess of light.” Her office mate Peter had snuck in early to shine all the rays on her and her desk.
For our Halloween we decided to honor our fearless leader and dress up as Ebenisms (wonderful words that Eben has made up). Each team member chose an Ebenism and created an outfit to express it. Wednesday morning we called him to a meeting first thing to surprise him with our costumes. He was very excited to see us all dressed and I think a little touched too. You can see many more of our costumes on the Facebook page. www.facebook.com/ebendesigninc
