My inner-dude-brah really comes out when I'm being proud of my job and my staff and such.

Re: Binder clips, our office is infested with them. They buy them by the buckets at Staples and use them for everything, which means you can look under any desk in the office and find a dozen of them laying around like dead cockroaches. They are fun to play with though. I do a pretty gross thing where I'll use them as tweezers and rip hairs out of my neck beard if I haven't shaved.

They're great for holding shut bags of chips, chocolate chips, flour, etc.

We've got a bunch of them that my room mate brought home from work, and we use them for what Greg said.

I've used them in my hair in place of barrettes, and to hold makeshift purses closed, and to hold together lots and lots of layers I was sewing. At my old job we made robots out of them and made them fight!

hmmm.... we'll see about that.

ok. It didn't hurt but I don't know if it's a good look? Gets the job done anyhow! My hair is kinda thick so I had to use a bigger one:

You two rock! I am showing these photos to Iris in hopes of turning her nascent "princess phase" into a "binder-clip phase."

Incidentally, we sometimes use binder clips to hang her drawings on walls, from ceilings, etc. Much kinder to the artwork than scotch tape or push pins.

Umpired my first games of the year last night, a JV college doubleheader. First game it was about 42 degrees, but then in the second game it got down to about 32, which sucked, mainly because I couldn't keep my tendinitis-prone Achilles warm. When I had to sprint to make a call on some play, it hurt pretty good.

!!!!!I am a genius!!!!!!

I was having a really great day. I cleaned my house, I listened to prince, I payed rent, got lunch and came by my office to print a couple GIS maps for a meeting down in Palm Beach on Monday. Our office is split and the plotter is on the other side from my desk. The door to the part of the office where my desk is locks automatically from the inside and when I came over to this side to check on the maps, well. I locked myself out. My half eaten moes burrito, my salsa, my chips, my now-watery sprite. All abandoned. No worries though! My boss' son is coming to rescue me in a few minutes. He will tease me for the rest of my life. I DID get my maps printed (I hope I did them right, they look OK. Maybe I will exacto knife the extra off the edges.) so that's great. And now there's another quirky peacocks story for everyone to toss around. Weeeeeeee.

Actually I'm in a pretty good mood today so I'm still having a great day. This is hilarous.

Most boring meeting ever, but they gave me raw fish to eat.  NEUTRAL.
