Yup. My favorite is when a client schedules an 8:00 Monday meeting for a document review, sends the documents via e-mail to my secretary over the weekend, then shows up and is upset that I haven't received the documents from my secretary who didn't come in over the weekend and isn't in the office yet (she usually arrives around 9:00). Invariably, my secretary will have told the client at least a week ahead of time that we need plenty of time to review the document they are...

Saturday night after the Halloween kids stopped showing up my wife and son and I sat down and watched Episode IV. Last night we followed that up with The Empire Strikes Back. I was pleased with how well these original movies have held up. It was also kind of fun to point out the places I caught (I'm sure I missed a few) where scenes and effects had been added--some of them were pretty obvious and sort of jarring, while others were okay. Anyway: good times. I am thinking...
Finished the last 20 pages of Armada this morning before heading to the office. It was pretty disappointing. I enjoyed the author's last book, Ready Player One, but this one just read like a book written by a 15-year-old nerd checking off a list of nerd stereotypes.
Of course, as soon as I posted that nobody had shown up...kids started showing up. Whew!
It's almost 6:15 here and we haven't had a single person come yet. We live in the middle of a nice suburb with tons of kids. WTF am I going to do with all this candy?
Little-known fact: Cracklin' Oat Bran (the cereal) is actually named after cracklin' oat bran (the shoe texture), not the other way around.
Finished that, started this:Sorry for the massive graphic.
Finished Gold Fame Citrus, started on this:
"Butterfly shoes." That's actually pretty funny, at least when I'm at work on a Thursday afternoon. I may regret this post later.
