Once a Day in April

Wednesday, April 02, 2008 by Stephen

April 2 resolution (happy birthday, Thomas; we'll take you to a pub next time you come up here): write a post every day for April. Tell your friends! Subscribe to my blog feed! I checked yesterday and saw that I have only 2 subscribers through Google Reader.

Yesterday I pulled an April Fools prank at work. You see, there are three coffee machines in our cramped kitchen on the 6th floor. These three machines serve fewer than 100 people, non-coffee-drinkers included. I put up a memo next to the coffee machines saying that due to counter space constraints and new appliance purchases, the facilities office would be down-selecting the coffee machines to just one machine, and that people who want to run the coffee machine could submit formal proposals to obtain exclusive coffee-serving rights for the 6th floor. I made sure it sounded real enough but then was completely absurd when you thought about it (e.g., I mentioned that proposals involving fair trade coffee would be given preference, and I specified that the coffee equipment could take up no more than 30 inches of counter space). I think someone didn't get the joke, since it was taken down before the end of lunch.

You already had me through bloglines, 1 of 5. Hooray for blogging! Especially on (much appreciated) rainy days like today. :)

(Although we wish we could be blogging about planting new fruit trees, but that will have to wait due to the rain.)

:) Very funny! But perhaps because I'm not a coffee drinker.

Strange that both of us have April resolutions in doing something every day.
