Re: off to college

Probably won't see her until October ("family day").

I assume the school is a fair distance away.

My daughters left last Friday. I saw them again on Saturday. The older daughter dropped by on Sunday. Then I saw her [more]

Re: off to college

My two most useful items (which I didn't see on her list) were a bicycle and a covered electric skillet. Used both every day.

I'm pretty sure the covered electric skillet would not be allowed in the dorms at my daughter's university. [more]

Re: Hey tall guy

There were a lot of softballs being tossed over there today. I couldn't resist not swinging at some of them.

Re: Board etiquette

Then you'd have to shake your head .... quite possibly very hard...to the left and to the right. How would that work?

I hear it's a good calorie burning exercise.

Re: Board etiquette

Have there been others?

I seem to recall there may have been but my memory is slipping since I was born before 1980.

Re: Board etiquette

I'm 65 and not offended by text-speak--even though I'm a retired editor. I think it's rather cute. Of course, I've been using thx, eqt, assn, asst and plenty more for years. To me, "ur" has meanings other than "your," but I [more]

Breaking News

I was so happy to see the breaking news post. On TV, they were showing another story about the Kardashians and my local newspaper buried it on page 10 the next day. I would never heard about it otherwise.

Re: off to college

Anyway, your post is one of the few I took an interest in. I hope you told her the handy rule about "liquor before beer, never fear; beer before liquor, never sicker."

Re: Completely OT: trashcan on desk

I guess it depends on your other activities in the office. Do you place a lunch bag that may have sat on a floor somewhere else on your desk? Do you ever read with your feet propped up on the desk? Do you place a briefcase, umbrella or any other item [more]
