Right, I’m going to wish myself a happy birthday. I don’t think it’s narcissistic, I’m just taking a moment to commemorate the occasion.
When I was in school we had Sadie Hawkins shags on February 29th. (I think shag is a Canadian term … a dance right after school, but before dinner.) It was the one day when girls could ask the boys to dances. I think it gave us girls the chance to experience the fear and trepidation that comes along with asking someone out. I was shy so don’t think I ever asked anyone to do anything with me.
Do you think girls now feel the same fear we did about asking boys out?
I’m changing the way I eat. Famous last words, right? In this case, it’s actually happening.
Before I start
making resolutions setting goals for 2016, I figured I should spend a few minutes taking stock of the last year. You know what they say, you have to pat yourself on the back once in a while! Read more
On Friday, Corporate HR sent out a notice that jeans would be permissible not just on Fridays but every day because ‘you’ve told us that casual dress improves productivity.’ (There are countless articles/blog posts/journals arguing for either casual or “professional” business attire, but my employer is leaning towards the relaxed end of the spectrum in an effort to be a workplace of choice for millennials – but that’s just my opinion 😉 .)

Today I watched CBS This Morning and they interviewed Jesse Itzler and retired Navy Seal David Goggins. Itzler, a successful entrepreneur who happens to be married to Spanx Queen Sara Blakely, hired Goggins as a 31-day live-in physical fitness coach. Goggins’ one condition for the arrangement was, “just do what I say.” Itzler wrote a book about the experience, Living with a Seal: 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet. Read more
I tend to be single minded … so when I get interested in something, that’s all I think about. If it’s a home project, I’ll want to call in sick (or beg to work from home so I can “multi-task” 😉 ), and if it’s a project at work, I don’t complain about coming in early or staying late.
Is that the opposite of ADD? Read more
As I mentioned in my last post, I went home, to Calgary, Canada for my longest visit since I left the city almost 19 years ago. Lots of time with family and friends!
Do you remember becoming a member of the Columbia House Music Club? I hadn’t thought of Columbia House and it’s monthly mailers for years, until I read that they just filed for bankruptcy. Read more
