Beets Business

Go to your boss and pitch this business idea.

Number 1 rule in roadside beet sales.
Put the best looking beets on top.

They make you pull over your car and say,
wow I need this beet right now.

Those are the money beets.

Birthday Bunny

Let the festivities begin!!!!

And as I blow out my candles on this my 30th, my fervent wish is that Jobe will fall asleep in the living room again so I can create the Birthday Party Edgarator!

I already have the prototype...

Time Warp

Strange. I'm losing hours. And I don't think the aliens took them.

I've just been dealing with a person who tells me things that I told her 5 minutes before she tells me.

HAH. Try dealing with THAT sentence. Maybe if you fold the sentence together like the back-cover of a MAD magazine it'd make sense.


Me: Our project deadline is looming. We need to get our interviews done fast, so we can keep time with our production schedule. I'm just waiting on your side to get me the details you promised.

Client: Hmm. Yeah. ______ was talking to me. We need to get the book done fast, so we need to buck up on the interviews. How long will it take you ah? When can I get it?

Me: As soon as it's done. Just get me the details so I can get the interviews done. We've done loads already just waiting on yours.

Client: Oh, I see. Ok. Will work on that. So when do you think I can get it? We need to hurry up.

It's at this point that my eyes start to glaze over - the effect of trying to stare down a black hole. The black hole always wins, and the loser walks away with a headache that suggests the death of a few million brain cells.
