i’ll show you mine, if you show me yours

So, we all have friends here in this wonderful world of blogging. Some of my friends are face-to-face friends, some are seldom-seen friends, and some are never-known/never-to-know friends. It’s all good.

After some prodding, I’m willing to show you my frequently viewed blog sites. This here is a more extensive list than the ones featured in my handy-dandy wordpress widget, yet it is not all-inclusive. I’ll charge for that said black book of blogging!

For me, the blog day depends on the particular day itself…a bit like a selected beverage of choice – depends on the prior 12 hours.

My blogging preferences? I enjoy creativity. No other preferences necessary.

[sites listed in no particular order…no need to read into this one, people]

Here you go…enjoy!

{M + C + 106.4 million sq. kilometers of h2o}

In the original post,  interesting life = interesting math I yielded the following equation:

16 (hrs of internship) + 10 (hrs of graduate research assistantship) + 20 (hrs of teaching at the college) + 15 (hrs of grad school) + X (umpteen amount of hours spent on reading/studying/writing papers) = my pity party

……………………………………

Hear ye, hear ye….I have yet to reveal a new equation:

M + C + 106.4 million sq. kilometers of h2o = a week of complete & utter bliss

enlightening christmas lights

As an avid blogger, I appreciate fellow bloggers and blogger friends of blogger friends.

ashley_85, a said blogger friend of a, uh, said blogger friend, wrote an enlightening post on Christmas worth re-posting for your blog-reading pleasure…enjoy.street lights

I was driving down my favorite part of the highway tonight, admiring the Christmas lights as I passed. On any other night, I would have kept driving on – most likely being disgusted by the consumer-driven, santa-fest that is both corrupting and supporting our society. But for some reason I was humbled by the clarity of the lights in the darkness. All of a sudden I understood the lights, as if they spoke right to me. They spoke of coming. They spoke of hope. They told me that Christmas is so little about the day itself and so much about the waiting, the anticipation. They told me that Christmas is about our lives, our faith, which seem to be an eternal waiting game. But there is hope and there is a King – and he is coming. The lights told me they shine so I won’t forget.

Its so easy to forget.

snow plow etiquette

an e/m from captain maintenance…give ear, and maybe one day you can avoid the potential of lying beneath the underbelly of a snow-plow induced mountain acting as a cloak for your lovely automobile. You can thank me later.

Once again it’s time for our annual winter wonderland and I would like to give some suggestions to staff to make the snow plowing easier.

  1. Number one because it is the most important. The visibility in the truck is terrible when I’m plowing. Please do not drive behind me, I can’t see you. Please make eye contact with me before proceeding in front of me unless you are sure you have clearance.
  2. Park in areas already plowed.
  3. Park together, do not spread out around the parking lots.
  4. Do not drive over unplowed areas if possible as your tracks freeze and it bends the plow over.
  5. If you are leaving vehicles overnight, park in the outer lots. One vehicle can cause many headaches.

Thanks for your indulgence. Violators will be buried in snow. Thanks…………….will

oh no
