Hmmm… I think I’ve accepted a ‘double dog dare’ from my friend to write more. I don’t know what that’s exactly going to look like – but it may or may not involve you being suckered into reading more stuff. You may have to self-medicate. You never know.
I should just publish my fascinating work notes. They’re kind of mystical…oh wait… maybe I mean they’re kind of ‘a mystery’. I just sort of scribble things on small pieces of paper despite my inability to write neatly or with small sized letters. I should carry a writing tablet with me for when I go near my boss’ office – but I typically take nothing and end up having to steal his pen or pencil and proceed to scribble on a small post-it note- at times I tell him he has only two sides worth of instructions, so make it concise. He often seems to disregard that tidbit – then I have to use multiple stickie notes and hope that I’ve got something coherent (I’ve given up on cohesive) by the time I get back to my office and start querying the data. I’ve been known write down that kind of stuff on my hand with a Sharpie (it’s the closest thing to a Palm Pilot I’ll ever have). That often bodes ill for for the outcome of the research so I’ve decided to just jot down dates and times. A max of 6 words. So it’s kind of like Twitter. Or not –
I only feel slightly better about my handwriting because one of my friend’s is definitely (in my opinion; ‘possibly’, in his) worse. His was described as ‘Ransom Note’ Font. I’m kinda jealous. I’m fontless. I always imagined my handwriting was sort of the equivalent of speaking-in-tongues on paper.
Speaking of a lack of cohesion – I think there’s supposed to be a subject at hand. Ah yes, writing. I don’t know…we’ll see what comes about. There have been a couple of cool things that have gone on. I’ve learned I have a whole family in Canada and I’ve just had a meal with my favorite author, Sharon K Penman. I have been wanting to write about those things; I just don’t know where I want to go with them yet.
But anyway – this may or may not be a warning.
Thank you, Ted.
