  • I passed around mini-cupcakes for Easter this morning. Got a lot of smiles. Now, I’m ready to go home & go back to sleep! #
  • (been burning the midnight oil lately, trying to get some writing projects done) #
  • I really didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. It didn’t help that I had a cat sprawled across my legs. he gave me the evil eye. #
  • I admit, I may have hit snooze, done some half hearted struggling, then went back to sleep when I couldn’t escape, what with the cat on me. #
  • …if I can’t go home, can I it at least be lunchtime already? *shakes Time in his hands* HURRY UP! #
  • …if someone asks if you know anything about Excel, you say NO! #
  • “Patrick, do you know anything about Excel?” “Uh, the power company? Sure…” “No, no – the spreadsheet program.” “Oh. Absolutely Not.” #
  • That’s what I SHOULD HAVE FREAKIN SAID. Grr. Mumble… gumble… #
  • So I tell this person how I would tackle their Excel problem. Slowly, their eyes get wider & wider until they are fixed in terror. #
  • “…that would take ME weeks! I can’t do that!” Sigh. Keep your mouth SHUT PATRICK! KEEP IT- “I’ll do it for you. Send me the file.” NOOOOO! #
  • >.< I just realized I forgot to upload today’s chapter of #Evermist last night! I’ll have to do it when I get home! Sorry folks! #

  • Well, I dig a little earth about an hour ago. Took a look around, see which way the wind blow… #
  • When the most annoying person in the company comes by to tell you all about his girlfriend, you start to wonder what you’re doing wrong… #
  • Whenever I create a new marketing piece for a sales person, I send them a proof. I am only human, and mistakes can happen. #
  • So I make them proof it & say: Please check all information carefully before approving for print. I’m human and mistakes can happen. #
  • Just had one of those sales people bring me a piece that was printed & mailed with a mistake. In THEIR NAME! They were pissed. #
  • I pointed out that they approved it. That didn’t go over so well… Blargh. #

  • #wipfire “Babe? Hey, babe? What do you wear to make history?” When there was no answer, Sullivan decided she was probably downstairs… #
  • #wipfire -and went back to staring at the clothes in his closet. People would probably expect a suit for something like this. He had… #
  • #wipfire -plenty of them in all different colors and styles; grey, blue, black, modern cut, retro cut – even a zoot suite for when they… #
  • #wipfire -went dancing, but they just weren’t his style if he had a choice. “Okay, you’re a pilot about to go further into space than any… #
  • #wipfire -human being has ever gone before, you need something legendary.” Nodding to himself, he picked out his favorite black shirt… #
  • #wipfire -and a pair of blue jeans, got dressed and headed downstairs. “No,” said Olivia. “Absolutely not. Go back upstairs and change.” #
  • #wipfire Sullivan looked down at the blue police box on his shirt, then up at his wife. “But, I’m making history.” “Exactly! You need- #
  • #wipfire to look the part of a hero!” He looked down at the police box again, wondering if women were built to never understand. #
  • #wipfire “Look, I’ll really be wearing a flight suit. The shirt will be under it. No one will even know it’s there.” #
  • #wipfire “I’ll know,” she said with a smile and he knew that he’d won; she wasn’t going to push it any further. #
  • ARGH! MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF CAT PUKE! IT’S EVERYWHERE! #
