Howdy-doo Misters and Mistresses?
All I can positively say about 2013 is that at least 1/12 of it is over. Between the illnesses, bad news bears’ extended visit, and the bat cave cave-in (resulting in a very costly sinkhole), this year has been a bit of a jerk. I’m quite ready to jump ship and move straight to 2014. However, Mr. McCluckin’ hasn’t finished his time machine, and insists he never will if I keep nagging him.
I had a wee chat with my lady-boss about promotions, duties, and my career future last week. She asked me to provide her with a list of goals I would like to accomplish in the next 6 months and she would do her best to make them come true. This was very flattering and I was happy to oblige. Of course, my first run at it included many items such as build my own palace, learn to speak fishwich, and moonwalk across the Americas.
After some pondering I whittled it down to a list of 13 items. The first is to learn more about the Adobe creative suite. To achieve this goal I created a wish list collage. I intend to print it and post it in conspicuous areas.
I may have mixed up levitation and meditation. We’ll see, maybe one will lead to the other. Additionally, I am hoping to write more. Might you have heard about the Calendar of Tales? The lovely and princely Neil Gaiman partnered with Blackberry to write 12 tales this year based on ideas submitted via Twitter by lucky readers. One of our dear friends was re-tweeted by Mr. Gaiman! Perhaps her tale will be picked! Nonetheless, I find this quite the pot of inspiring soup. I’m plotting a writing goal involving story telling and feel as though this might be just the starting point I’m seeking. Nothing has been solidified, so if you have any suggestions, I’m all ears. Here are the subjects of Neil Gaiman’s Calendar of Tales:
Why is January so dangerous?
What’s the strangest thing that ever happened to you in February?
What historical figure does March remind you of?
What is your happiest memory of April?
What is the strangest gift you’ve ever been given in May?
Where would you spend a perfect June?
What is the most unusual thing you’ve ever seen in July?
If August could speak, what would it say?
Tell me something you lost in September that meant a lot to you.
What mythical creature would you like to meet in October?
What would you burn in November if you could?
Who would you like to see again in December?
I must ponder this a bit more. This shall require all the tea I can find and perhaps a digestive biscuit or two. For now I bid your adieu! Enjoy the other internet lands you shall visit today!
