Efficiency, Holidays and Pluto

I've had a couple of highly productive days at the office, but apparently it has worn me out. I'm a tired pup tonight. I'm sure I'll feel rested tomorrow morning - at least I hope so - because I have a ton of freelance projects to get through this weekend. Hopefully I'll be as efficient with those as I have been at work lately.

Sometimes you just get in a mood where things seem to fall into place. Although, truth be told, I think part of my super efficiency was that people who don't work in museums where long weekends are a busy time - not a down time, were getting ready for a mini-vacation and therefore weren't calling me about new projects. So, I had time to focus on the ones already on my desk, which was nice.

One of the things I love about my job is that I get to share interesting little tidbits now and again. Today was one of those times. On this date in 1930, Kansan Clyde Tombaugh discovered Pluto. I don't care if it's officially a planet or not, I'm loyal - I love Pluto.

Years ago when I did graphic design for a radio station I made a postcard series of famous Kansans and he was one of them. Fortunately, that was before Pluto's "demotion." I loved The Big Bang Theory recently when Sheldon was disdainful to someone he viewed as responsible for that. Not really a fair characterization, but how many of us feel nonetheless.

Well, as much as I love to ramble - and we all know that's true - I must get some sleep. So I can ramble anew tomorrow!
