Monday Musings

First of all I would like to say that my blogging schedule will be sporadic over the holidays. I will blog when I can and read/comment on your blogs as much as possible. My home office will be over taken by visiting relatives but I will sneak in as often as I can to communicate (and preserve what little sanity I have left).

Now on to more amusing musings…

Work Thoughts:

You can go anywhere you want if you look serious and carry a clipboard.

To err is human; to blame someone else shows real management potential.

At work, the authority of a person is inversely proportional to the number of pens that person is carrying.

When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question, "How would Iron Man handle this?"

Is anyone else taking a break over the holidays? Putting the blog on hold? Or are you taking this extra time to get more writing done?

And with that, I leave you with a family picture...not my family but close enough as to not really matter.


  1. Hah, that first one is what I always say to my cohorts when we're about to do something we're not sure we're supposed to. If you look like you belong there, people will assume you do.

  2. Someone told me once the key to getting promoted at work is to arrive before everyone else, leave after everyone else, and walk around really fast carrying a clipboard. You don't even have to do real work...just give the illusion of it. Not sure if that works or not!

  3. Love the picture! I've already watched Christmas Vacation twice this season. And many more to come...Have a great holiday Marsha!

  4. I love that movie! I must watch it again. Sometimes I feel like our family is even crazier than the Griswolds! :)

    Merry Christmas!

  5. I've long since suspected so much about the clipboard. *moves clipboard up to number one on the Christmas list*
    ~Happy holidays to you and yours!!!!

  6. The clipboard thing really does work, I've tried it.

    My blogging is already sporadic this week. Too much to do, so little time!

    Happy holidays!


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
