Hate to brag, but look at what my 7 year-old cousin made for me!
The Family exclamation point, however...
I got two presents today!
Roses! But not from Wannabe Lover (as in I want him to wanna be my lover).
And pound cake - from another boy! (I think we all know what giving a girl pound cake from a vending machine means...)
If you look closely at the photo with the flowers, you will see a framed list of my 5 strengths, based on the 30-minute quiz I took in the book next to it, “Strengths Finder 2.0”. My strengths are as follows: Input, Strategic, Intellection, Individualization, and Ideation.
I think you are impressed.
The book and the framed strengths list were given to me as gifts from someone who works with me. I think the people I work with are very brilliant.

Thanksgiving is almost here!! In preparation for mandatory family-time, I went out and bought 2 biographies to read, CVS-brand migraine medicine, and junk food. The best part is, I’ll be able to finish the biographies within the merchandise return policy timeframe and get my money back!
Johnny Carson, a wise wise man, sums up the holiday:
"Thanksgiving is an emotional holiday. People travel thousands of miles to be with people they only see once a year. And then discover once a year is way too often."
