Well, here we are again. Another Friday. Another week that went by way too quickly. The storm the east coast is getting started here yesterday, but it must be picking up steam as it moves because we really just have one giant snow cone without the syrup. I’ll admit I’m insanely jealous you’ll be getting two feet of snow. I still haven’t been able to use [&hellip... Read More

Several years ago, I was leaving the office. I had on my coat and hat; I was holding my gloves until the moment right before I stepped outside. My bags were full of things to take home to work on. And I stopped in one of our account executive’s offices to say goodnight. She was sitting there with two other colleagues and they were talking about [&hellip... Read More

How is it possible January is already finished? I feel like the weeks are going by so quickly. I get up on Monday morning and I look up and it’s Friday afternoon. Does that mean I’m getting old (don’t answer that!) or we’re just really busy and having so much fun time is flying? Whatever the case, it’s already February and my birthday is in NINE [&hellip...

A couple of weeks ago, I was at dinner with Mr. D and our friend Matt Cermak. We talked about whether or not we thought Manti Te’o made up a fake girlfriend for publicity. Typically the cynical one of the group, I took Te’o’s side stating I can understand how something like this happens. I spend a lot of time online. I’ve made friends with people online [&hellip...

We finally have snow! We finally have snow! We finally have snow! Jack Bauer and I were the first ones out in it this morning. I made snow angels and he marked every tree he could find. I don’t mean to be greedy, but it needs to snow just a little bit more so my cross-country skis can come out and play, too! If anyone can [&hellip... Read More
