Friday Five: Random stuff and One Speech-Centered Pet Peeve
1) Office Slang: Find out the meaning of “Alpha Geek” or “Beepilepsy,” my personal favorite.
2) Steve Job’s MacWorld Speech 2008: Steve Job’s 90 minute keynote speech in 60 seconds–just as good as the full version (maybe better).
3) Bobby Fischer Quotes: Some of the best, “Don’t even mention losing to me. I can’t stand to think of it” or “It’s just a matter of throwing in a few sacrifices, then checkmate!” Good-bye Bobby…
4) “I Was A Really Good Mom Before I Had Kids” : Trisha Ashworth and Amy Nobile have written a great little book about the joys of giving up trying to be the perfect mom and embracing your inner messy linen closet.
Speech-centered Pet Peeve of the week? When people SAY “Oh, that’s hysterical” and don’t even bother trying to laugh– not even a smile. For those of you who do this please see definition of Hysterical, #6 here. Now stop saying it, unless its through tears of laughter.
