Should I send her a congratulations card or just wait outside her daugther's Sunday school class so I can tell her in person?

No matter how wise or godly, I guess every girl is just the same, huh?
"Oh my gosh - so on my way home tonight there was this guy on the NRW platform who had brought down a freaking piano and was playing it. Then there were two people on the L platform dressed up like cookie monster and playing the xylophone!..... THEN there was a guy in a dolphin costume sitting on the train. Like a full-on suit with one of those big character heads and everything - straight from an ocean-like theme park!...Craziest ride home EVER...." - courtesy of LA
I laughed (out loud) for 5 straight minutes after I read this. THIS is why living in New York City never gets boring.

This morning when I got to work, I found this sketchily lying under my desk... who knows where or who it came from, and why it was put there. And the creepiest part - it was dead. Two other girls in my bay had one at their desk too, and they hadn't the slightest clue why either. I'm hoping someone left it there on Friday afternoon, so it had the weekend to waste away...otherwise I hope it's not some foreshadowing omen of my future at Perkins Eastman. However, LA did have a good point. Maybe the HR department has become tired and stale of the conventional way of doing layoffs, and they've adopted a "Bachelor" style of informing employees...which is good news for me and the others who got the rose - we're safe!

If you look closely (extremely close) behind the rail where Brendan and I are standing, there is a tiny rock with "1620" engraved on it (you can't see the "1620" from the picture). Yes, believe me. THIS is Plymouth Rock. I don't know how the Pilgrims saw this or what attracted them to it, but I am thankful that our country was founded due to the grandeur of this tiny rock-let.

However, after watching this newsclip, this project would be a HUGE challenge. A budget of $100,000??? That's it? If there's one thing I've learned in the short time I've worked in this industry, it's that good design services don't come cheap. And I'd guess that Obama's designer would be considered "good" based on his past client record...

2. If you feel warm-ish (relatively speaking, of course) when it is 18 degrees outside, this is not a good thing (probably because you aren't wearing a hat).
3. No matter how rediculous I once thought it was, it is ok to use an umbrella when it is snowing outside.
