Just like classes, meetings need to start on time and adjourn early. Expecting others to wait because you have loose ends to tie up causes entire schedules to slip. Early adjournment solves this by preallocating slack time for people to mentally shift gears, prepare notes, or travel between locations. Adopting a 50-minute hour for your […]
We went to Eddie’s Attic to see Pierce Pettis Friday night. The big surprises were Edie Carey and Rose Cousins, who both deserve their own headline billing. Hope to see them when they come back through Atlanta, or at least buy some more of their CDs.
I recently received an email reply to a list wherein the sender noted at the top of his email that his replies were inline with the previous sender’s text, but in blue. You know, to set them apart. I am completely flummoxed that anyone who uses email on a daily basis has no idea what […]

Are there merpeople who refuse to eat roaches because they are just shrimp of the land?
We got back really late last night from playing Magic, and somehow ended up watching Josie and the Pussycats, which turned out to be its own punishment and then some. What a horrifically bad movie. No wonder people on graveyard shift tend to be a little… off. :)
