I'm working on an online form that people will use to reserve our auditorium. The printed form I'm working from contains this advice:

"If you bring your own laptop to use with our system the resolution must be set at 1024x768 and 60mhz."

Isn't that funny?

Something Important

Does anyone besides me and Danielle watch How I Met Your Mother? The gimmick is a little strange. Each episode begins in the year 2030, with the central character, Ted, telling his two children about the good times he had in 2005 with his friends Marshall, Lily (Alyson Hannigan), Barney (Niel Patrick Harris) and Robin. Eventually (we assume) all these stories will culminate with Ted revealing how he meets his future wife, but I really fear the show will get cancelled before it gets that far. Then again, I guess I don't care that much about How Ted Met His Kids' Mother, I just don't want this funny show to end before its time.

No one I know seems to realize this it exists. We really enjoy it. Niel Patrick Harris is freaking hilarious as Barney. Alyson Hannigon is too adorable.

The point of this post is to let you know that this funny show is on CBS, Mondays at 8:30 pm (check your local listings). We don't want it to get cancelled, so please start watching it and buying everything being sold by the show's sponsors.

Also, please watch My Name Is Earl. Most people seem to be enjoying that one already. And Danielle is enjoying it more than most people.
I feel great!

I was feeling a bit tired and figured I could take a walk down to the corner deli to get myself perked up a little bit.

I didn't bother to ask myself one crucial question: How hard is it raining? Answer: Pretty hard. I went ahead anyway, two blocks there and back. I'm definitely feeling more awake now. And a bit cold. And quite wet.

Ah, the best part: I brought my umbrella to work today. I left it right here in my cube.
