When I got to the office this morning, I saw this flyer posted near the reception desk:
Maybe I am strange (maybe?), but I find this hilarious and also slightly ludicrous.
Of course, ludicrous is a word I use to describe a lot of stuff at the office . . .
Lookie! I made some progress on the second half of my Pacific Islands Shawl!
I made such good progress because I took Monday off from work. I am at the office for the rest of the week, so the progress will slow down quite a bit.
It was nice to hear from other map geeks in the comments to yesterday’s post. I love maps, always have. I recently got this book as well:
This is London: A Life in Maps, and it’s got reproductions of lots of antique maps in it. It’s sort of a history of the city, revolving around its maps. A very fun read!
In other news . . .
Didja see that Sheri posted information about Loopy’s Spring Fling ’08 sock retreat? And did you see who one of the “celebrity guests” is? It totally cracks me up that Sheri refers to me as a “celebrity.”
Anyhow, sign-ups are open for the retreat — I’m really looking forward to it!
The photoshoot of Lucy in yesterday’s blog post was, of course, done with her flopped down on her back in my lap. This is a relatively new “thing” for her. If she wants me to flop her over on her back, she will stand in my lap, meow insistently, and head-butt my hands. I am generally required to do this at least once a day.
Lucy would like you to know that keeping her cataloons fluffy and pretty takes a lot of grooming.
