I've been a bit quiet lately, I know, but I've been writing a lot - just not here. I blog about compensation and talent management trends, I write FAQs, I write data sheets and value statements and white papers. I write little emails to various people.
This week I'm trying to explain why our SaaS/EIB/XML/SOA/LOL/LMOA is better than their SaaS/EIB/XML/SOA/LOL/LMOA.
To give you an idea, I considered calling this post, 'Technical acronyms flying out of my butt' but decided against it.
Anyway, while it's great getting paid to write, at the end of the day I'm too shattered to sit down and write more. Y'know?
But don't worry, the Germans are bound to do something soon that I won't be able to help writing about. I can feel it, they're up to something.
In the meantime, I have something to share. A couple of weeks ago L (4 years old) had an impressive bout of projectile vomiting after I let her eat a large chocolate ice cream cone instead of lunch. I cuddled her while she hurled over and over again into a bucket without getting a drop on the walls or carpet. She's such a good girl.
K (6 years old) came in, frowned thoughtfully at her little sister, patted her on the head and announced that she was going to make her a present. Off she went for about ten minutes then returned with a drawing of L being sick surrounded by things to make her feel better (i.e., a princess, a unicorn, the planet Earth, etc.).
L felt better soon after K gave her the picture and was able to get up and start playing again.
Here's the picture with amazing healing properties:
