The Splintered Chat #10

It's that time of the week again...

Hopefully, your weekend is going to be chock full of what you need, whether that be rest and relaxation, or time to catch up on projects. For me, I just want more time. I need it because I waste it finding delightful gems like these:

Yep, this one is very useful in everyday English situations. In fact, I just used this expression the other day when I had AT&T explain my first phone bill.

If your weird doesn't lay in that direction, then you may like this. The New York Times recently did a feature on Al Jaffee's fold-ins for Mad magazine, something he has done since the 1960s. If you aren't familiar with the term, "fold-ins" are those nifty sight gags on the inside back cover of Mad magazines where you have to fold the art up to reveal the secret picture. Sometimes obvious, but most times insidiously clever. This is an excellent usage of Flash technology. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a good weekend. Good luck with your personal goals and remember to keep your spirits up. A positive attitude will help you see options a negative attitude won't notice.

This begins my open forum for the weekend. Comments will close when I remember to do it, possibly Monday, but I'm not guaranteeing anything.
