Random Tuesday Thoughts.
The denizens of this particular form of social media are entertaining and most often enlightening.
Can you tell I'm in academic gray literature paper writing mode?
You may want to drink a couple of cups of coffee first.
"Writing your husband again? But you wrote him yesterday for money."
"I find it advisable to use a thorough follow-up system."
If you are ever in the Washington DC area and that includes Baltimore, here is a tip;
stand on the right
walk on the left
this is the unwritten law of escalators and those moving pathways. If you don't follow this tip you may find yourself mowed down by a man in an expensive suit as the poor lady that I helped by grabbing the sleeve of her jacket to pull her to safety did. After she got over her total bewilderment of why this crazy lady was grabbing her and pulling her to the right and why Mr. Powersuit was racing past her on the left fast enough to spin her in a circle I explained the rule. I doubt she'll forget it anytime soon. Poor thing.
More 1912 humor
He - Be this the woman's exchange?
She - Yes
He - Be you the women?
She - Yes
He - H'm! Then I guess I'll keep my Sal.
Edwardian humor. Not all that funny.
While in Baltimore I picked up a birthday gift for my friend Julie.
She'll love these:
Prosperity Hens and an evil eye.
She'll be safe from evil and hopefully she'll be prosperous.
The perfect gift.
I'm just looking out for her.
I, of course, picked myself up a set also. My department is getting new offices in a month so I'll need to guard it against evil spirits. With that thought in mind I also picked up another set of these.
Tibetan prayer flags.
I'll be in New Orleans in June maybe I should check out the local voodoo shops?
Better safe than sorry.
When you visit Galveston
The Beer That's Liquid Food
Galveston Brewing Co.
JR considers most all the beers that he drinks liquid food.
It's not just for breakfast anymore!
That's enough out of me. I've got a ton of stuff to do today that should have been done yesterday but instead I came home from work yesterday, made dinner (and not a very good one I might add), then promptly fell asleep. That traveling stuff takes it right out of a girl.
