Sometimes you need to be Silly!

Hanging off my desk at work I have 2 signs: "I am the keymaster, are you the gatekeeper?" and "I can't brain today, I have the dumb"


Because sometimes we take ourselves too seriously, especially when working in an academic setting.

And before I go on, please watch this. I'll wait.

I know that I need to work on the art of Being Furiously Happy. But I think that with my silly office signs and my selective forwarding of appropriate LOLcats to my officemates I'm making a good start.

I know I need to be reminded from time to time not to take life so seriously, because no one gets out of it alive. And now I'm reminding y'all that too.

So take some time to wear a silly t-shirt, or put pink flamingos on your friend's lawn, or dress your dog up as a squirrel (it makes squirrel chasing easier).

Me? I'll be labeling things in the office that students seem to miss. How about "This is where you put your papers, Silly!" for the drop box?
