Over Labor Day weekend I took my first trip to Door County, Wisconsin for a good friend’s wedding. And being my first trip, the day after the wedding I thought I’d do a little mini sightseeing before heading home. So I grabbed the official “Pocket Dictionary to the Peninsula” out of the hotel’s lobby for a little, well, guidance.
Now, I know that my pockets happen to be on some shorts that are a little shorter than others. But by no means were my pockets tiny.
Therefore, I’ve decided the pocket guide is just a figure of speech, not to be taken literally.
As I could literally not get this in my pocket.
Oh well. I enjoyed my local coffee and scone just the same.

On a recent over-night stay, the hotel had this placard posted outside the bathroom door.
So my question is this: Did they post this when they installed the latest in silent fan technology … or do they simply post this by everything that doesn’t work?
Regardless, I’m going to start using this idea myself. Instead of fixing things, I’ll just place signs next to them explaining that they really are working … you just can’t tell.
For example, instead of replacing burnt out light bulbs: ”Lamp very very dim when turned on. You may not see light emitting.”

Just so you know, Foursquare … I’m assuming that your message at last night’s check-in is not so much a judgment as it is an acknowledgement. Nonetheless, maybe you could add a little more context to your notifications?
Something like, “That’s 3 straight weeks at Bars! Congratulations on your social life,” or “That’s 3 straight weeks at Bars. But congratulations on the other 49 consecutive weeks that you weren’t!”
Context and punctuation are everything.

On a recent work trip to LA, I checked into my hotel room after a long day. Maybe I was just tired, but as soon as I flipped on the lamp I found a very familiar woman was looking back at me.
Does anyone else think the one lady in this photo looks like it could be Ellen?!
And does anyone else think I need to get my hands on one of these one-piece swimsuits?!

If you haven’t downloaded and played Ellen’s Heads Up app/game, it’s most likely the next thing you should do. My sis and I played it for the first time to try it out … and ended up playing for over four hours.
Here’s one of my favorite rounds. It took nearly that whole four hours just to get my sister to guess “headphones!”
