What can I do for my boss that would be nice? I am trying to get back into her good graces and a suggestion was made that I do some one nice thing for her each week. I don't know what she is into. She's not into any of the things that I am. I do know that. Although, I don't necessarily think that matters.

I think actions are best, as giving someone gifts is just tawdry. Plus I have tried that route with other people and it doesn't work. What do you suggest I do for my boss, on a weekly basis, that might be nice? I think conversation would be best, but I have a hard time talking with her. She talks about herself a lot...which makes it easy because all I need do is listen, but most of the time I don't know what to say. I'm very anxious. I don't want to get another bad review. More importantly, I do not want to lose this job before I find another one.
Other people on staff are aggravated....and when I say other people I mean everyone. I just really want to keep my interactions as positive as possible.
