    Heveltica? What is this? had no idea someone else in the family was office supply, planner geek. I could happily spend hours in an office supply store and like Kevin I have a stack of notebooks some written in some not. Enjoy the first podcast can’t wait to listen to the rest.

    Hey! Just wanted to say not seeking an official diagnosis is ok. I’m 99% sure I could get one for my depression but I haven’t partly because of the “what if I’m not and just faking” fear but also because I don’t see it helping me where I am right now.

    Sorry for preaching to the choir & thanks for all your great shows.

    It’s a good thing I have misplaced my coffee this morning, because the conversation about DDDDDDDDDD has me laughing so hard that I would be snarfing it if I could find it. Now I have Frank Sinatra and other kind of “dee dee doo doo deedle” remnants of songs in my head. But no coffee. Must find coffee.

    I swear to god, Ursula, you need to write that corn god story. And while you’re there, have his BFF the tomato god and the potato god join in. For potatoes, he the potato devil is the russet Burbank. For tomatoes, the tomato devil is those ungodly abominations that they pick green, transport from Ohio, and then vaguely wave ethylene gas at it to get to somewhat red on the outside, and cardboard on the inside. No, that’s not fair to cardboard. Cardboard tastes better.

    Anyway. The horrible things we have done to these noble plants native to the americas deserves a moment in the sun.

    One of the ways those 9am Pacific time meetings happen is some dingbat scheduler with the aforementioned obliviousness to time zones looks at the East Coast crew and says “Oh, great! Here’s the one hour that absolutely everyone is free!”

    My manager from when I was at a large maker of Virtual Machine Wibbly-wobbly bits had her lunch hour blocked off on her calendar as a defensive posture. My buddy Purple has 8am-10am Mondays blocked off to prevent someone popping a meeting in on him (his team works 10 to 6-7 Pacific time).

    Burnout is a medical condition… it is totally appropriate to use medical terms to discuss it. Don’t feel bad about that. 🙂
