So I’m not sure exactly what will happen here but I need a hobby or something to do other then organizing soup cans, looking up old 80′s tunes and seeing what exciting things other people are doing on Facebook. So maybe this will keep me out of trouble and maybe I (and possibly you) will learn something. Even if its that I’m not a very interesting person and need a life. Having a lot of time to think and look things up I have a head full of useless information.
I’m sure somewhere and in a different context it would be useful but in my job it is not. Nobody ever wants to know who the editor of Vanity Fair is (Graydon Carter) or when Star Wars opened (May 25, 1977) or what the first video on MTV was (“Video Killed the Radio Star” by the Buggles). Personally I think that if my company worked stuff like that into meetings and web articles on a regular basis people would be more interested and engaged.
I would find it more interesting than say ….. the recent article on “How to deal with difficult emotions…. our own and others’. This was interesting and surprisingly entertaining but I’m sure not in the way communications people meant. I had many conversations with others and they had some very good idea’s on how to deal with difficult emotions (and people) but oddly none of them were in the article.
I chose “Quipidity” because the domain name was not taken and since there are so many other blogs out there that I’m sure are much more useful and informative than mine I figure I can treat this as my journal (on serious days) and my diary (on petty, lazy days) since probably three people (Hey Girls! Dinner soon?) will read this.
If you are not one of the three and feel like offering insight, advice, comments or suggestions I would love to hear from you. If you need insight, advice or suggestions just ask. With my busy life I may not be able to help but “The Bear” will probably be able to help you out. He’s old, wise, retired and has a lot of time on his hands so he has time to think and research.
Here is “The Bear”
