Bad cat! Now I have to have a sale!

Posted by 55799468 on

Who likes a surprise sale first thing in the morning? Thanks to Pretty Princess cat (pictured here snuggling her sadly-now-passed-on Old Dog), I need a new camera.

Wednesday Wisdom: Show up; do the work.

Everybody, I don't care what kind of job you have, has days when you're just not feeling it. Days when you get to your job and the love, the motivation, the oompf to work is just... gone. On vacation. Comes up 404: File Not Found. Some days the motivation can be found for you - or at least a good facsimile.
