A last shindig before starting work

The shindig to which I am referring is a pool party hosted by Melanie and Vance with their frisbee friends. It was really fun, and they were playing a game of pool frisbee or something. Since I was trying to avoid the sun–since I hate using sunscreen–I was responsible for retrieving rogue frisbees. Well, the pool is asymmetrical and shaped like some sort of a weird kidney bean, which normally wouldn’t matter, unless you’re not watching where you’re walking and are heading in a straight line. While looking for a frisbee, I was heading along the edge of the pool as it cut outward, and I totally fell face first and fully clothed into the pool. It was the funniest thing ever, and I totally didn’t see it coming. At that point I decided to join in the game, and it was hard. I got a little sun and a good workout. Everyone was is on the fun, and I think Horatio even wanted to play–I have been saving this picture for weeks waiting for the right time to use it! I think I will be sore tomorrow, and possibly sunburned, for my fist day of work.

Sidebar: As you know I recently refreshed the design of Paging Reflections. I am also trying to decide how to do capitalization on my blitles (remember, a blitle is a blog title–learn it, do it, do it now). Should I do Initial caps on first/last/important words (traditional), all caps, one initial cap or all lowercase? I am leaning toward the last two. Help me decide…immediately.

Speaking of my first day of work, I have had a long “vacation” and period of rest–even though I have been busy every second of it with stressful moving and laborious packing/unpacking. I am a little nervous now that work is imminent. I think it will go well, but as with any new job, it is intimidating and new. I am no longer the person who knows so much about stuff or one of the go-to people for writing. I am the new blood who must ask questions and learn everything as quickly as I can to get my tasks done correctly, efficiently and in a timely manner. Stay tuned for more details.

I am getting sick of not having a working phone out here. I need to switch to AT&T soon, so I am going to try to get an IPhone sometime this summer if I can save up enough with my recycling money and birthday money.

    I think you should do your blitles in code. * **** ******* ****** ******** ****. Perhaps an ampersand here and there for effect and artistry.

    PS–that picture is frickin’ hilarious as is my mind’s eye snapshot of you belly flopping into the pool.

    You wish you were still in Ohio

    I typed a comment saying, “You wish you were still in Ohio.” It said, “Duplicate comment. It appears you have already said that.” Illogical. Never
