Birthday wishes

Happy birthday to Colin!

In honor of someone who organizes other peoples' time for a living, here are some handy time-saving techniques from my past few days.

  • If you want to waylay surprise packages that might arrive in the mail, don't let the birthday boy go off with the mailbox key for the day.
