Things of Note:
Happy Tuesday! It’s been a productive few days for me, though sadly not for the boy. It was his birthday this weekend, but he started coming down sick on Saturday afternoon, so most of our planned festivities got postponed. Hopefully he feels better soon! With him out of commission on the couch or napping, I had way more free time this weekend than usual, so I actually got a lot done. Is that bad? I promise I took care of him as much as I could, too.
The rest of this week is for networking events, the Gelato World Tour, and a good friend’s birthday. Plus normal work and shop stuff.
What are you up to this week?
Omg! That baby otter is adorable!
Right?! I had no idea they played like that! I may have looked up whether it’s legal to have on as a pet after that (it’s not, sadly).
The coding sucks article is hilarious! Just shared it with some of my programmer friends. 🙂
Glad you liked it! 🙂
Ugh, I do the “so” thing ALL THE TIME. In fact, my husband teased me about saying it too much yesterday. He reads Fast Company, so I wonder if he saw that article, too…
Small (internet) world! I find I do it more in writing than in speech. Not sure what that’s about.
I’m really loving Jimmy Fallon as the host of The Tonight Show and love that he kept all of his same skits.
I think he’s doing great. And the lip sync battles are hilarious. 🙂
