Four things that happened today

Number 1: I joined Facebook. I know, I caved. Now I have more things to waste my time than ever before!

Number 2:
I became art. Thanks to LeendaDLL, for the idea!

Number 3: I learned that the monster you make up is always more scary than the real-live thing. (I had to tell my boss something I thought could turn so unpleasant I might have to resign, and instead he just said "okay" and all was well.)

Number 4: I abandoned the phrase "jump the shark" for good. Because there's a much better one now: "nuke the fridge." (And if you realize what that refers to before you hit the link, it's so much more delightful.)

    I just saw Krissy’s message and your picture. LOVE that you showed so many. I have a box of cassettes but their stacked, not visible like yours, and I was too lazy to haul it out.

    This was actually the top drawer from the steamer trunk so it made it easy to pull out — the setting up so I could take a remote photo was the challenging bit!

    Anyway, thanks for the idea! Have you seen this:

    I so want to contribute, too … nothing like a pop star you admire giving you not one but TWO mix tapes… 😀

    [this is good] Woot!  Also, I’ve found #3 to be true too, but it doesn’t stop me from stressing out in those situations.  :-/

    Thanks! I know, I stress out daily and by the time I get around to taking care of the stress there’s no way it could be worse than I imagined….
