I’m behind on email and posting. Here are some nuggets.
Six Rules for Contractors. Old and excellent.
What looks like a good book about project management: The Art of Project Management.
Interesting and depressing and inevitable about outsourcing and the global village: Indian call staff quit over abuse on the line.
I cooked a broccoflower tonight. It was not very impressive. It’s very much like half-a-broccoli and half-a-cauliflour. So… what’s the point? Not terrible, there’s but not much to recommend it.
Speaking of cooking. I have been doing some of it. Highlights: sloppy joe’s _(natch)_, killer scrambled eggs _(featuring cheddar jack, soy milk, and water)_, oatmeal, baked custom sandwiches, breakfast burritos-to-go _(featuring leftover scrambled eggs)_, and miscellaneous goulashes. I enjoy doing shopping. And things I dig having in the pantry — dates, jalapeño slices, cheese-crackers-and-peanut-butter. Oh, and frozen turkey sausage patties are pretty cool.
Also, _Gilmore Girls_ has been on lately here in the house. Alex and Leah watch it together. Very Mother/Daughter-y.
Leah and I have a list of shows which we will never watch, ever. When they come on the screen whilst channel-surfing, we must change the channel immediately. We started with _That 70’s Show_. We added _That’s So Raven_ recently. We’re considering adding _Blind Justice_ as well.
I came across this essay on sales technique while searching for instances of the phrase “Coffee is for Closers”, a line from _Glengarry Glen Ross_.
That’s all for now kids. More another day.
