Advanced Degrees

358°: The street sweeper swept my street for the first time in close-to-forever. Just hours before I had resigned myself to sweeping up the leaves so as to ready ourselves for the next winter storm. Thank you, Sir Street Sweeper!

357°: Getting encouragement from folks IRL and out yonder on the whole concept of 360°. Makes me want to go all Sally Field on y'all.

6°: I sucked it up and got in touch (granted, secondhand, but, still) with a woman who despises me. Why does she despise someone as loverly as moi? She thinks I got her friend fired laid off years ago. Did I? What I did was stop good employees from being laid off by offering to temporarily take on a gig I despised. Granted, it was her friend's gig, so I guess the short answer is I did contribute to his being laid off. I guess a longer answer is that I got him "offed" in order to save several good people. So, yeah, I got the high-maintenance screwball fired.

[Look over that way -- POINTS UPWARD TOWARD SIDEBAR -- for the original post about my 360° Project.]

Glad you set the prius driver straight. ;)


I mentioned to Eldest the other night that I had a fairly wide open day Friday. Writer that he is, he wondered if I would perhaps like a wri...
