Spring, you went to the doc for ear issues, right? Was it excessive wax build up? Some other issue? I'm wondering for my own personal reasons. If you don't want to get all up in your business on Say It, you can pm me.

"I will never be the woman with perfect hair, who can wear white and not spill on it."

so, i got some mail today...

under normal circumstances that would be ordinary, but let me tell you the story behind the mail...

we have an internal network for the thousands of civil servants who work in the province of Ontario. it's part Wikipedia and part CurlTalk - honestly! we don't have message boards like this - what we do is make blog posts and people comment (or not). we can also post updates and people can reply to our updates. the wiki part relates to the pages about work.

the government runs something we call the Summer Experience Program and high school and university/college students get jobs in various offices - sometimes it might even relate to their studies!



i had some wonderful students helping me with a complete inventory of the file room back when i was at the other office. thanks to the students, we finished the entire project.

back in May, a new blog was started called Something Stupendous by a student at the Ministry of Agriculture in Guelph - a small city close to Toronto. in the blog, Leah talked about how she found all kinds of ordinary workday things to be "stupendous" (much like Neil Pasricha's 1000 Awesome Things). to say that the blog caught on would be understating it.

Leah earned the nickname "Stupendous Girl" with her own logo like Superman's "S" (designed by my friend Melissa) that became her avatar. she was invited to be a special guest at our gov't TEDx event after only a few weeks of blogging because she made that much of an impact.

Something Stupendous ran nearly every day of Leah's 3.5 months with us. if something else caught her fancy in between posts, she would update with "Stupendous Snippets".

i think i posted a comment on 80% of her 77 posts and we traded emails several times over the summer. with my boss away the whole time, i would make it a point to look for her posts and was quite often the first person to comment.

Stupendous Girl made a lot of us jaded gov't types look at our work with fresh eyes, which is a pretty wonderful thing.

today, in the mail, i got a card from Stupendous Girl herself. she was thanking *me* for being her #1 commentator and for the emails we traded!

now, how stupendous is *that*?



Melissa came up with a way for all of us to keep Leah's blog going. they're going to unlock it and Melissa and another person will be admins and there are 6 of us who will write guest blogs and submit them to be posted weekly. we're encouraging everyone else to use the hashtag #stupendous in updates to become "Stupendous Snippets".

just like Neil Pasricha, Leah has the gift of seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary and she passed it on to thousands of others. i'm honoured to be a part of continuing her blog.

I'm big sack of tired! I drove 45 from work to my house. Picked up my bfs mom, drove to dc, stayed with her til she boarded and then drove back home.

Sooo tired.

I just found all kinds of fun census records online for both sides of my family! So cool!

Plus I found a World War II draft registration card for my great-grandfather... He was 52. I can't believe a 52 year-old was required to fill one out!

I thought I was ok. We ended the conversation on a calm note, but REALLY? REALLY? I've supported you in all your relationships. You don't want want me to remind of you what you went through and where you ended up because of them. Do you realize that you said it would have been better to date someone on drugs, who is married and cheating on his wife?!!! Thanks for not giving too craps about me and suggesting something that would merely be "fun" for you.

Hoping this might reach somebody here. This boy in an alum of my school (he was a senior when I was a freshman) and everyone's panicking. Last time they saw him he was on dry land.

How I feel when I understand something!

I actually did this dance earlier tonight when something I was reading made sense.....

I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.
