fun and games

Today was the birthday of both Randy and Scot here in Pismo planning. I volunteered to make cards. And I was inspired! I thought of twins, something to do with twins. So I found an image online of two little boy twins with hockey sticks and ball on the grass. I found a pic of Randy in our online archives, cut his head out, and stuck it on one of the boys. Elsa grabbed a photo of Scot at the counter with our digital camera. When he asked "What was that for?", she said "What? I didn't do anything."

I took his head off, too, placed it on the other twin body.

The heads were over-size, so they looked like caricatures, cartoons.

Both cards were identical except:

There was a yellow circle around Randy's head on his card, and the words, "Happy Birthday Randy!!", while the circle was around Scot's head on his, with "Happy Birthday Scot!!". Inside it said, "There's nobody else in the world like you."

Big hits, these cards. Everyone laughing, including the victims. That, along with mucho cake, made this day pretty cool so far.

(no subject)

A slow day here in the nest. Finished a draft report, packaged it together with numerous well-marked attachments, gave it to Carolyn. Discussed finding a new title for me. Suggested "Planning Specialist". Carolyn says why not, suggests "Empress", says she'll find out if there is any reason I can't have a new name.

Had cake, twice.

Had my free latte at Starbucks in Vons.

Looked in on Wells Fargo, wanting to talk about opening an account for Conscience sites, but as usual there was a line and the desks were full as well. That Grover Beach WF is hopeless that way. I will stop at the Vons bank on the way home, ask the questions.

Yesterday I saw Jill, discussed recent thoughts at a rapidfire rate, told her of our business, my computer, bunches of other things, left there not quite knowing what to do with it all, as usual. Yet in the end I am the one who figures out what to do with what I know. And again, she's the one who is paid to listen, and I need someone who will listen.
