Happy New Year, all. We are in the final stages of straightening up the lab for our annual New Year's Eve soiree, which has become so traditional, that this year, we didn't even bother to send out invitations. And, if Five hours from now, there's just the four of us banging the traditional New Year's Gong of Better Luck and blowing upon the Crumpled Trumpet of Fiscal Responsibility– (Those are actual instruments that we own and we only haul them down from the shelves for New Years. It's a Geneva Convention thing.) Well then we all get to go to bed early, don't we?
Ran some last minute errands today, which included depositing some checks. While I was standing in line, I noticed that someone in the Banks Advertising Dept. had discovered social media, as there were little ads exhorting me to follow them on Twitter, like them on Facebook and subscribe to their YouTube channel.Unfortunately, it probably isn't a couple of LOL cats talking about fiduciary responsibility, or a reasoned repudiation of Marxism sent out in 140 character bursts, so I think I will skip it, as will everyone who isn't said Advertising Dept. minion or their immediate superior.
And for those pondering our little pop math quiz; 2013 is the first time since 1987 where the year won't contain duplicate numerals. I posed this question to the Experiments, and Number 2 got it instantly. Good for her.
Happy New Year!
