Took the elevator down to the parking garage last night after meeting with some colleagues, noticed a reflective surface so I made weird faces trying to see if I had anything caught in my teeth.

Over the intercom I hear "This is Security, is everything OK in this elevator?" 😳

I think one important lesson I’m taking from having feeder in my yard is that Disney Princesses deal with a lot more bird shit that we have been led to believe.

(One thing I enjoy about new music/composers' concerts is that they are usually a delightful mess. For example, I am mostly playing violin and viola tonight, but I will have my bassoon for one short movement in which what we play will only approximate what is on the page.)

Bilingual packaging is great because it's easy to ignore the English "cheeze" and focus on the much better French "fauxmage."

So go into this knowing that as soon as a job description is published, it is no longer accurate.

So the question isn't, am I qualified for this role or not. The questions is, do I want to join an ongoing conversation on a team that agreed to this description of this role, and what do I bring to that conversation?

When you look at a job description, you're looking at the end result of a long and mostly hypothetical negotiation: that is, this is the description of the role of a person that will (we think) contribute to what this team is (we think) trying to accomplish, that was agreed to by the people above, below and next to the place in the project where that person will live. It's not the job, it's how people could agree to describe what they imagine the job will be.

seen on Twitter; not my joke 

"What's this pile of clothes?"

"Those are my friend's."

"And this Nine Inch Nails CD?"

"That's the 'Closer' CD I stole from my enemy."

"And why are they all together in your closet?"

"Well, you know what they say..."

"The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at and repair."
