Maybe it's the knowledge of the fading summer season. Or that big gaping hole in my pretty designer wallet. It could very well be cabin fever- if American were my cabin. Regardless of the reason, I've been feelin' slightly blue these days. Just a tinge, a shade, a highlight. So, I'm seeking out all that makes me smile or ignites my imagination.

It's Share-and-Tell time.

For those who have stairs and/or love to leave their shoes right in front of the door- the solution and the problem have been combined, for your convenience.

And last, but definitely not least, a personal favorite.

A subtle suggestion

And, we've all seen this email float around our world places at one point or another. I think it's especially relevant for today ;-)

* If it is all the same to you, I won't be coming in to work. The voices told me to clean all the guns today.
* When I got up this morning, I took two Ex-Lax in addition to my Prozac. I can't get off the john, but I feel good about it.
* I set half the clocks in my house ahead an hour and the other half back an hour Saturday, and spent 18 hours in some kind of space-time continuum loop, reliving Sunday (right up until the explosion). I was able to exit the loop only by reversing the polarity of the power source exactly e*log(pi) clocks in the house while simultaneously rapping my dog on the snout with a rolled up Times. Accordingly, I will be in late, or early.
* My stigmata's acting up.
* I can't come in to work today because I'll be stalking my previous boss, who fired me for not showing up for work. OK?
* I have a rare case of 48-hour projectile leprosy, but I know we have
that deadline to meet...
* I am stuck in the blood pressure machine down at the Food Giant.
* Yes, I seem to have contracted some attention-deficit disorder and, hey, how about them Hoyas, huh? So, I won't be able to, yes, could I help you? No, no, I'll be sticking with Sprint, but thank you for calling.
* Constipation has made me a walking time bomb.
* I just found out that I was switched at birth. Legally, I shouldn't come to work knowing my employee records may now contain false information.
* The psychiatrist said it was an excellent session. He even gave me this jaw restraint so I won't bite things when I am startled.
* The dog ate my car keys. We're going to hitchhike to the vet.
* My mother-in-law has come back as one of the Undead and we must track her to her coffin to drive a stake through her heart and give her eternal peace. One day should do it.
* I am converting my calendar from Julian to Gregorian.
* I am extremely sensitive to a rise in the interest rates.
* I can't come to work today because the EPA has determined that my house is completely surrounded by wetlands and I have to arrange for helicopter transportation.
* I prefer to remain an enigma.
