*This week while driving to work I saw a policeman throw garbage out of his patrol car window onto the road. I wrote down the license plate and called a non-emergency number to let someone know. The patrol Sergeant called me back and left a nice, apologetic message saying he would follow up. It must be hard to have your every move noticed, but I just hate littering.
*I got the neatest opportunity this week to join a 12-week Dale Car.negie class designed to help professionals go to the next level. I think it will provide assistance in areas I really could use it - self-confidence, stress management, personal flexibility. My contact is going to allow me to attend for 1/2 price (those are some pricey classes!) because she said she rarely sees people as motivated to grow as I am. I've known this for a while - I'll (disappointingly) never be the smartest, the most well-spoken, the most poised, but I might be the person in the room that tries the hardest. The class starts in September and I'm really excited.
*I'm finally using Google Reader to keep current on all of my favorite bloggie-poos. I resisted forever because I like seeing the individual templates - the personalities of each blog. Plus, it's a huge pain to get set up in an aggregator. But now that I'm set up, it's so easy to keep tabs on everyone.
*I signed up for a class at work to help my public speaking ISSUE and it takes place next month in Boston. Boston! Woot! (Is this the proper use of "Woot!"?) I'm going three days early to enjoy my first time in what everyone says is an awesome city. It sure is fun to explore the NE, and since the economy has all but priced me out of taking a vacation this year, adding a few days onto a work trip works in a pinch.
*On Friday it was 97 and humid here! High five minus four!
*Yesterday I went to see Mamma Mia in the theater with my mom. That movie is terrible! Did it even occur to them to try to cast singers for a musical movie? It's too bad - maybe if I hadn't seen the Broadway show I would have liked it. To make matters worse, there are no good Youtube videos of the musical to watch 1,000 times in an attempt to get Meryl and Pierce's singing voices out of my head.
*Someone found my blog recently by googling "tiny buns."
