At least 4 of the blog writers I read are currently in the process of putting out books based on their web writings. Another one announced her upcoming book (to be out in 2005) today. Brave new world. It's a little envy-making, but at the same time it's so ENCOURAGING!

Transported Back to High School by a Memory Master: Fresh Meat by the She-Dork

Lots of projects that would be fun at work if work was fun going on right now. I just got the proofs back for the four posters I designed for the new offices and they look great. I have another poster ready to go and have to do small signs for the "quiet rooms" that we will have in each of the wings, which include a photo and a name. I'm working on the move newsletter, too: a special edition for the employees that gives info about the new building, where to find things, tips about working in open landscape seating, etc. Yet another piece of bad news about the new building: apparently they keep the temperature very low all year round. One of our new employees that worked up there previously says it's freezing inside all the time. Oh joy.

Since I got nothing done at home last night due to the fatigue/chills, tonight is dedicated to getting the family website update finished or as near finished as possible. I watched West Wing and was so out of it that I couldn't keep up with the rapid-fire dialogue exchanges. Then I went to bed and read some more of Almost French, which I am enjoying so very much and after I put it down to go to sleep, I couldn't. Go to sleep, that is. argh

Blonde Joke My Sister Sent Me That I'm Thinking of Trying at Work: Two factory workers were talking. "I know how to get some time off from work." said the man. "How do you think you will do that?" said the blonde. He proceeded to show climbing up to the rafters, and hanging upside down. The boss walked in, saw the worker hanging from the ceiling, and asked him what on earth he was doing? "I'm a light bulb," answered the guy. "I think you need some time off," said the boss. So, the man jumped down and walked out of the factory. The blonde began walking out, too. The boss asked her where did she think she was going? "Home," she said, "I can't work in the dark."

Whaddaya think? Will it work? >:)

I like the blonde joke. :) *thumbs up*

Hey, I resemble that blonde joke!


Thanks for the link, Liz! I like the joke a lot. Also, the picture a few entries down is so great. I love the looks on your kids' faces! I think I missed a day with you somehow--I am glad that your boss is so supportive and helpful to you about the upcoming move. Hopefully everything will turn out better than expected.

Take care,


no no no! thank YOU! for writing such great stuff :) and thanks for the comment and the good wishes :)
