Tossed Salad Friday

~~I was positive good karma abandoned me a few years ago. Then, just the other day, the universe sent me the teensiest signal that Lady Luck does know I exist.


You see, I always bring my knitting to continuing legal education seminars. I can concentrate on the presentation while making progress on a sweater, and I always sit in the far back so as not to distract fellow attendees.  In addition, I never want to appear rude to the speaker! However, earlier this week I was in a sparsely attended class, and the lecturer could not only see me, he was continuously making eye contact with me (some public speakers pick out one person in the room to calm them, and I guess I was his island of tranquility).


10 minutes into the seminar, as I was grumpily knit-free, a very amply proportioned woman chose to sit directly in front of me. There were seats to the right of her, seats to the left of her, and seats galore in front of her, yet she planted herself in the one seat that lay between the speaker’s line of sight and me. It was kismet- I could knit!

 ~~The stats counter on this blog went wonky in July.  More people e-mail me daily to comment on the blog than it indicates even visit, which strikes me as peculiar. I know not all my readers are looking over each other’s shoulder at one monitor! So, would you do me an anonymous favor? Leave a comment. Just say “hi” if you like, or “enjoy the weekend,” or post a smiley face. Your info will go nowhere and your anonymity is protected. I’d just like reassurance that my readership hasn’t suddenly plummeted into single digits (if that were true, we could just set up a conference call or Skype each other). Thanks!


~~ You know that business is bad when there hasn’t been an entry in your phone record log for four days. For me, I guess that’s another savings in rarely replaced office supplies. For you, it’s probably not a good time to  invest your lunch money in Staples’ stock.


On that happy note, have a great weekend!

Always reading and enjoying, though sometimes weeks late. Is it really, really bad that sometimes I copy and paste and send to my husband the tidbits that engage me the most ? I wonder if others do that.
Have a great weekend and please don't stop blogging. It would leave such a huge void in my favorites :(

Congratulations to the FIFA winner
Too bad about the US. I don't care for games that end in PKs.
