The Leap Year Six.
Happy Leap Year ... day! (Sounds like kind of a crap holiday.) Here are The Leap Year Six.
1. Since I last Friday Six'd, I was trying desperately to minimize stress levels. Over the last two weeks, I've been working less at night, freaking out less at work, and peppering my days with less insanity. The results? I'm breathing easier. Just acknowledging the stress made me deal with it better. And posting about it helped, too, because disclosing my desire to chill out held me accountable. I exposed myself to the internet (have fun with that one, Mr. Google) and I was obligated to follow-through. Sooooo, after that long-winded explanation, I'm feeling pretty chill, thank you very much.
2. To that effect, Generation D has been updated for February. And thank goodness for the extra day this month, or my article on diabetes and stress would have been wicked early for March. :) I hope you enjoy it!
3. Here's something that made me laugh my ass off: my favorite dLife marketing maven sent me a link this morning to Garfield Minus Garfield, which is hosted off a Tumblr blog (which an interesting blogging platform. Very minimalist.). The gist of the site is as follows: "Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness in a quiet American suburb."
And oh, how I've laughed and learned. This one is the office favorite:
5. Oh, and then there's Molly the diabetic spot-nosed monkey. Of course. She has a book (of course) and a set of inspirational posters (of course). This poster, of Molly enjoying lunchtime snacky bits with a duck and an armadillo (of course) is my favorite.
And 6. I'm looking forward to bringing in the month of March in RI, hanging with Batman and maybe visiting the butterfly conservatory in MA. It sounds like a very cool place to take some interesting pictures with the Nikon.
Have a stellar weekend, FR's, and I'll see you on Monday! :D
