What’s Really for Sale?

      4 Comments on What’s Really for Sale?

I have a deep seated hatred for the word “influencer” along with its partner phrase “influencer culture”.  It’s all just so fake.  How many times have celebrities and pseudocelebrities gotten busted for including the directions from the company they are supposedly promoting out of the kindness of their hearts in their social media posts?  It’s laughable.  Even more laughable are… Read more »

Cubicle Day

      No Comments on Cubicle Day

Today is Cubicle Day. Cubicles have been around a lot longer than you might think- they were first introduced in 1967!  The idea was to break up open office spaces and allow for a bit of privacy/ personal space.  Clearly that idea really caught on, and the majority of us have worked in a cubicle at some point in our… Read more »

Today is a heartwarming holiday we need more than ever this year- Thank You Thursday.

What if Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day

Well? What if they did? Pretty much everyone loves cats or dogs- some love both.  Regardless of which one you prefer, think imagine if they had thumbs.  Real, working, opposable thumbs.  They could open their own food.  They could open doors and drawers and cabinets (depending on their size and level of agility). Those were the first ones I though… Read more »

Pluto Day

      No Comments on Pluto Day

Today is Pluto Day! Today we celebrate the official discovery of the planet Pluto on this date in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh. Fun fact- Pluto is NOT named after the Disney character, as has been widely suggested.  Instead, it is named after the Roman god of the underworld at the suggestion of Clyde’s 11 year old granddaughter, who was very… Read more »
