Back to real life...

A funny from book_of_daniel's blog:

Dailyafirmation Blog Survey

Robert was such a dear, dear man, and gave my place a once-over while I was gone. I came back to find these things, among other I've yet to notice I'm sure, done:
  • The rug that sits on the floor in front of my kitchen sink washed. It's had an annoying stain on it for I don't know how long.
  • My guest bedroom sheets washed.
  • Spots removed from the carpet in my living room. I thought they were permanent stains.
  • My computer station dusted, and straightened up. The dust on the top shelf, alone, must have been at least an eighth-of-an-inch deep.
  • All rooms vacuumed.
  • Dusted my two nightstands in my bedroom, and the two chests of drawers.
What have I missed sweet man? Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Oh, yeah, he also brought me food, including a few sesame seed bagels, so I'd have something for breakfast this morning. Thoughtful!

I worked from home today, with a "One-On-One Meeting" with my manager from 10:30 - 11:00. We talked about my editing priorities over the next month or so, and we talked about her latest "opinion survey" results, which were not good.

I sat at Helios for about an hour-and-a-half tonight, and listened to The Da Vinci Code on my iPod. I'm very close to being finished, and I can't wait for it to be over.

Intermittently, I caught snippets of a conversation going on between three guys and a girl sitting at the table adjoining mine. The girl had a white short-haired, but curly-haired dog.

One person that came by the table asked, "What kind of dog is that?"

"She's part Bichon Frise and part Poodle," she replied. "A Bichon-Poo."
