saw this on a bumper sticker the other day...
"those who say it cannot be done
shouldn't interrupt the people doing it."
crazy mish-mash of stuff today; some random pictures, a couple cool quotes, your "five for friday"... i'm kinda goin' free-from today and letting things just float around on their own. i think i'm gonna try to do that the entire weekend. i do that once in a while--especially after a long run of working hard to meet deadlines and keeping to schedule--just sit back a little from all that's going on around me and watch as things fall into place for themselves. it's amazing how many things you think need your constant attention will really just find their own solution or resolution if left alone.
so here's the mish-mash...
i invite you to throw in your own contributions to the mish-mash too.
post a quote or a joke or a little story in the comments section or send me a jpeg and i'll post it up on the blog.
(send it to firstname.lastname@example.org)

for christmas sharon's mom gave me a joke a day desk calendar. some of them are cute. some were really funny when i was in third grade. some of them are ancient corny, groaners that weren't even funny in vaudeville. but there are a couple good ones in there...
two young engineers applied for a single position at a computer company. they both had the same qualifications, so they were asked to take a test by the department manager.
in reviewing the test, the manager noticed that both men had been unable to answer only one of the ten questions.
the manager went to the first applicant and said, 'we've decided to give the job to the other applicant."
"if we both got nine answers correct," said the rejected applicant, "why did you pick him over me?"
the department manageer said, "we have based our decision on the question you missed."
"but why would his incorrect answer be better than mine?" the rejected applicant inquired.
"simple," said the department manager, "the other applicant put down 'i don't know.' you put down, 'neither do i.'"
looking forward to iron man~~
