Sundial

I just moved into an office after more than 3 years in a windowless cubicle. New office has a window and an angled view of the Capitol Building, which is pretty cool. What's especially neat is knowing the weather and time of day without using my computer. This south-facing office gets lots of light from the mysterious yellow ball in the sky throughout the day, so I decided to build a sundial one day. For some reason, I half-expected it not to work. It does. Minor triumphs like this make life worth living; well, that and buffalo wings.

This means it's almost 2:30, which it was. Rock.

Sure you were using office time to blog, but I'd give you a promotion and raise anyway, just for the sheer creativity of this. Rock, indeed.

Goddamnit, Gump! You're a goddamn genius. You must have a goddamn I.Q. of a hundred and sixty!

Hey, I'm just as surprised as you all. I'm not a very creative person, but here we are.

Now that's what I call productivity! Admit that you felt - if even a tad - like you actually invented this way of telling time?

I didn't invesnt it, per se, I just checked their work. And now, thanks to me and only me, it's ready for mass consumption.
