Partly Sunny, Partly Cloudy? Updated Sort Of
I am slightly obsessive about keeping all the photos and graphics I use on the blog(s) in folders on a jump drive. I have all kinds of photos of the clean variety. And I have the kinds that I can't open when my back is to the room.
Today I started a new folder and realized with some surprise that I hadn't done so already. Up until this point, President Obama-related material was being tossed into my general government folder.
The above word-cloud from Obama's inaugural (Hey, Gifted Typist, it took me two tries to spell it correctly) is the first thing to go in my new Obama folder under the blogging pix directory.
So fascinating, you want to gauge your eyes out, right?
Oh, and by special request via a teeth-chattering phone call from MathMan who was on his way to or from a Metro station (ask me about the super-hot text exchange we had about metro stations!), I'm sharing with you a very important link: Eric Philips of WSBTV here in Atlanta is traveling with the MathMan High School band and is blogging the experience. Do a fellow blogger (no I didn't say that with a pouty lower lip because he gets paid to blog) a favor and click here and leave the man a comment. You know how we all like comments, right? And don't give me any lip about having to sign up for the slanty thing to make comments. It takes two seconds. (False alarm! The comment thing is gone. Sorry for any confusion.)
I've been keeping up with the band via Eric's updates. He's a great writer, a keen observer and good humored enough to travel with teenagers and teachers. I think you should leave him very nice comments for having traveled with MathMan, who, I can assure you, is not the easiest person to travel with, most especiallly when he's traveling without his favorite piece of ..., well, without me.
I am so going to be fired as a wife...........
P.S. Be sure to not reference how crass and out of control MathMan's wife is, please. He needs to keep his job and his students need him. Thanks!
