Begging off

So. Y'all keep having birthdays. I've noted them -- rather inconsistently until 2008, when I hit on doing songs and poems for all that year's birthday celebrants, and then much more consistently after that -- in entries here. But I don't think I'm doing it in an interesting way anymore. I've also missed some birthdays lately, and it feels lame to say "Hey! This person changed ages a day/three days/a week ago!" Finally, I don't want to go through the simple motions of noting birthdays. It's probably better for me to direct birthday wishes straight to you, whether in your journals or through e-mail or on your FaceBook pages or wherever.

So I'm begging off. Trust me, I'm thinking of you, and I like that you guys are around and having things worth celebrating. I'll just note that in different ways.

Do Less Wrong

Today: NOT at my best, work-wise. Got more things wrong than normal. I felt off in many ways, and not delivering the work I needed to deliver, and I got people frustrated. Also I got flustered, which makes it harder to figure out what the Right Thing To Do is. Good thing I realized that, though, and course-corrected, and I was doing better by day's end. Took effort, though.

Today was a day when Doing It Right was harder than normal. Sigh.

Okay, then. Tomorrow, do less wrong. Get more right. Keep your head. Manage to do good work. I've done plenty of it.
