~Monday~  The girl in the seat in front of me on the bus this morning did one of those Johari Window's second quadrant ("blind spot") things. That's the quadrant that contains the things you don't know, but that others do.


What she didn't know that I did know was that when she pulled up her thick, black ponytail—held together with a multicolored white-pink-lavender-purple tie—to keep from sitting back against it and threw it over the seat behind her, it landed right in the middle of the pages of my opened copy of Mary Higgins Clark's Two Little Girls in Blue.

Girl! I mean your hair is not a bookmark.



I found these three things from Friday's bus ride home that I'd written on the back of an envelope and forgotten.

  1. We passed a guy over on Method Road who was standing in the parking lot of an apartment building holding one of those horse leg-sized large drink cups from a fast food restaurant right in his crotch. He had both hands wrapped around it, and it looked like he might have been... Let's just say that I looked to see if maybe he had taken "dick-in-a-box" to a whole new level container.

  2. There are two ways to use a fare card on the bus—one is to swipe the card horizontally through a reader, and the other is to insert the card vertically in a slot, after which it pops back out validated. Today a man started dropping coins down into the card reader slot. There's a whole separate area on the fare machine for coins and bills. Bless his heart.

  3. The third thing of note that happened on Friday reminded me of Wheel of Fortune's puzzles called "Before and After." Only this one would be, "Before, Between, and After." Here's the clue: The name given to an Hispanic man who got on the bus wearing a baseball cap with a cowboy hat on top of it! Before you guess, I want you to picture that. All you could see was the visor of his ball cap under the front of the brim of the cowboy hat.

I had a meeting-less workday, my favorite kind. There were all kinds of Internet connection problems this afternoon that presumably were from NC State's service provider, MCNC/NCREN.

Early afternoon, Jen dropped by my office and after hearing how hectic her day was going to be, I volunteered to attend the NCSU MS in Tech Comm's Orientation tonight, and pass out information about IT at NC State.



I walked across the street to NC State for the 6:00 meeting, where I met a lot of nice people, and more importantly, picked up some food for a couple of days worth of lunches. :-) Seriously, thanks for the killer meatballs, Sarah!

I'm looking forward to the student chapter of the STC's first social and networking gathering, coming up on Thursday, August 27th.

Sarah (E-W) was very gracious and gave me a ride home, which was nothing but balls of laughs the entire way.

Nice meeting you!
Nice meeting you at orientation today! You can see my blog at http://howboutthemdodgers.blogspot.com/.

I must say I'm impressed with how observant you were of the girl's ponytail tie.

Re: Nice meeting you!
Hi again -- thought I'd answer your question here. I took project management over the summer, my one and only MBA course. It wasn't all I thought it would be.

Re: Nice meeting you!
Oh well, that should make ENG 518 easier for you, if you haven't already taken it!

Re: Missing word?
Actually, no. My office is very heavy and when she tried to pick it up, she dropped it. LOL. Bless my mess. Fixed! Thanks!
