I planned on giving you a tour of the museums we visited while in New York, but then I got distracted by this news story in the Daily Mail:
“A student who left a pineapple in the middle of an art exhibition as a prank was left shocked after curators put the fruit inside a glass case.”
About a year ago, Twitter lit up with an account of a teenage boy who left his dirty sneakers in an art museum and watched as patrons took pictures of them.
That was funny too.
But there are a few things I want to point out:

The following is a true account of what happens when snot meets technology. Despite our most incredible advances, it is crucial for technology to remain snot-free.
Consider this a Public Service Announcement…

Dear Blogger Who Recently Followed Me,
Please accept my heartiest welcome to our Feeding on Folly neighborhood!
Take a seat anywhere you like… well, not there… that’s where Brian of Bonnywood always sits… no, not that one either, that’s Patricia’s spot. She needs the side table for her tea…
Oh, geez, just take the one next to the sofa, will ya?
Okay, feeling settled in now? Good.
You can’t imagine my surprise last Saturday morning when I learned you were following FoF. Not that it’s unusual having new followers, but normally there’s a process involved. Such as they read a few posts, like one or two of them, then decide to follow.
You, on the hand, first followed, then liked 17 posts in a row! My goodness!
What’s more, you’re obviously a speed reader, as all 17 of those likes were accomplished in only one minute. Most impressive!
But then I went to my stats page and saw this: Continue reading “In Which I Question the Motives of a Blogger Who Recently Followed Me and Politely Suggest He Stop Using Super Long Blog Post Titles”
So I’ve been doing some cleaning around the ol’ blog – not sure if you noticed? New theme, upgraded account, no ads (you’re welcome), clearing out some dead links. Just kind of sprucing things up a bit.
Not to brag – well, maybe I’m bragging a little – but I wasn’t at all worried about making these said changes. It’s not that I’m a computer whiz, exactly.
Oh heck, let’s be honest: I’m more whizzy than your average suburban housewife.
All this is to say that on my second day of working on the blog, the new theme and upgraded no-ad account in place, I started my first post of the new year and wound up with a problem I couldn’t fix.
And I wound up calling support. *sob*
Here’s what happened… Continue reading “IT Support: I Bow Before You”
I reread A Christmas Carol recently, because it’s a thing I do every year and it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t.
(Not to be pushy, but if you’ve never read it, DO SO NOW! Here’s an online version if you don’t own a copy. I recommend you read it slowly, to get all of that great Dickens’ humor.)
Anyway, yesterday as I was listening to the radio, I heard the DJ call his brother a Scrooge because he was complaining about the nonstop Christmas music. The DJ was wrong on two counts: Continue reading “Do You Keep Christmas Well?”
Ordinarily I’m not one to namedrop, but the fact is, I know Mr. and Mrs. Claus personally.
Fact is, I work with them. They’ve been working at our school since last August. Continue reading “The Truth About Mr. & Mrs. Claus”
The tension is mounting people, even drawing in our most chill-est of personnel! (If you didn’t catch our previous update, click here.)
This morning I walk into the break room for my requisite cup of Earl Grey, and there by the microwave stands one of our counselors. One of the cool ones because she reads this blog. (Although she’s running a month behind, meaning she hasn’t read my last two posts.) Continue reading “Anonymous Note Update, #2!”
Hold onto your hats, people! A NEW anonymous note appeared in the break room!
In case you missed it, my previous post was inspired by an anonymous note I saw at work. Today we have a new chapter in our story. Continue reading “Anonymous Note Update!”
If you work in an office, you’ve no doubt seen your share of anonymous notes. Maybe even written one?
It’s all right if you have. You’re safe here.
Anonymous notes are great for several reasons: Continue reading “The Fine Art of an Anonymous Note”
