The Book of Threes, Part I

More eBay

I can’t believe what you CAN’T FIND on eBay.  Typing Cathy Tedford produced zero results. Plus I learned today that my CAA 2010 proposal on Berlin stickers was declined (i.e., rejected).  Including a blog may not be the best idea to use in a C.V. for a conference proposal.


Stickerkitty has been slacking off during the holidays and/or working on some other projects.  Thanks to Chris Watts at SLU’s NCAT, I learned how to create my name via a binary code of zeros and ones. I will need to spend some time with this information.

Way too many !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :/

One of my sisters (who now has a very cushy high-paying executive job at the Harvard Business School) told me to never use exclamation points.  She’s right, but I get excited sometimes and can’t help myself. That, plus in my book, one should never use parentheses.  If you take them out, the text is always stronger. See what I mean?: “My sister, who now has a very cushy high-paying job at the Harvard Business School, told me to never use exclamation points.  She’s right.  But I get excited sometimes and can’t help myself.” See?  Parentheses are typically un-necessary.  Commas do…
