Must…stop…sending pictures of bacon bouquets…on internet!
I’m working at home today, writing and editing, as I’ve done with varying degrees of success since 2003. Software book today. I’m rolling right along, learning about how you can create computer models of useful metal doo-dads using things like “the Lofted Flange tool” which “creates sheet-metal shapes typically seen in HVAC transitions and material-handling hoppers.” I slug in a margin icon to show what the Lofted Flange button looks like in the graphical user interface.
My Uncle Fred used to own a shop in San Antonio that manufactured dies, stamps, and other metal forming machines and accessories. I didn’t really understand what these things were for, but every now and then when I’d leave my college campus to go up to Aunt Elaine and Uncle Fred’s house for dinner, he’d pull out some doohicky and show it off, in all its precision-cut glory.
…and before I know it, I’m looking up recipes for supper tonight and reading someone’s Sippy Cup blog. I must share that phrenology head drawing that shows parts of the toddler brain. The Acceptable Food frontal lobe, where sensors for Goldfish and What Mommy is Eating reside–too funny. [Click! Share! Witty comment about own toddler.]
Ack! Only 45 minutes before I have to leave and get Camilla from school and then editing is basically given over to snack, homework help, and TV-watching-negotiation. Get thee back in your basket, laundry! I’ll not tumble you during my paid childcare hours. Back to work I go.
