No donuts today

Dear members and constituents of the Friday Donut Club,

It has been over 14 uninterrupted months that on Fridays my desk has had donuts (I know there were muffins one Friday). I believe it is easy to take a good thing for granted and the absence of that thing can lead us to value it more. I know that is the case for me today as I long for a sweet pastry and feel the void in my office. I am still in the process of soul searching to determine whether or not to continue this proud tradition.

To those of you who did without breakfast on the expectation donuts will be here today, may I recommend you get something at the cafeteria before it's too late :-). I don't think we've seen the end of Donut Fridays yet...

Stay tuned.

Suggestion to this tradition.
  1. Continue with Donut Club with the high end criteria.
  2. For those whose commute does not allow for convenient pick up of donuts at a high donut boutique, they fall back on the internal Level 3 ‘Pressed for Time’ to pick up donuts at the donut boutique.

JP – why wouldn’t we continue? Just make a decision and go with it. Either way we go, we lose people on one end (purist) or the other (pragmatist). And since most of us are tolerant, then that’s what the group should be, right?

BIrds of a Feather

Friends, The early bird catches the worm, however, as the sun rises I’d much rather have a Denver omelet than a diet of worms . Ready to fly the coop, my ducks all in a row, I ponder one more time whether a bird in hand is truly worth two in the bush. Egged-on by my quest to tuck away a nest egg, I’ve decided to change industries and hope that, like the phoenix, my career will also rise from the ashes of change. After all, I’m no spring chicken –my crow’s feet and gray bely my age – however, I have to trust my judgment and believe you can’t catch this old bird with chaff (whether or not folks think me an odd bird for my actions). And so I shall attempt to soar like an eagle, aware that counting my chickens before they hatch would be ill-advised. As I learn to talk turkey in the language of cybersecurity, I will endeavor not to hide my head in the sand, choosing instead to be like a duck – calm on the surface and paddle like hell underneath! And while my excessive use of bird-inspired

Love and Marriage go together like a Horse and... Donut!

Friends, My family gained a new daughter last week. As I welcome the freshly minted Mrs. Gonz├ílez, I wish the new couple a lasting, loving, happy and tranquil marriage. I am also reminded of a special delivery I received at the wedding. A few weeks ago, my niece/goddaughter held a “go fund me” and offered to stitch something for the donors. I, of corse, asked for a horse jumping through a donut. The completed masterpiece depicting this unlikely combo now has a special place in my office, and brings a smile to my face every time I see it. That said, I may forgo the obligatory donut today and opt for some of the leftover cake we still have at the house. Happy Friday!   New addition to the Family Horse through donut  with the artist   Horse through donut at it’s new home shelf P.S. The donut wall in action.

Life is Smiling!

Friends, You know life is good when even dinner smiles at you. That said, digging into smiley soup can pose a dilemma. At a conscious level, you know it’s just inert food. Inanimate, unsentient, incapable of emotion or feeling. Still, those cute cross eyed egg eyes and that little pepper smile are saying ”I’m your friend” —and friends don’t eat friends. Naming your anthropomorphic dish only makes matters worse. Eventually, being the monster I am, hunger wins. Mmmm, delicious! (Sorry, Sally). Speaking of which, maybe skip the smiley faces on that next dozen donuts. Happy Friday! ;-)
