Man oh man, I do not knowwhat is in the air these past few weeks but it seems like a lot of seemingly simple tasks have spun out of control. You know the ones that should be resolved with an email or two…that then turn into 30 over the course of a few weeks?
Yup, that’s what I’ve been dealing with at work lately…which is why Google’s tribute doodle from today made me laugh:
Well not so much the doodle, but the fact that it was in honor of Pierre de Fermat, a famous mathematician of the 1600’s who is also known as “the patron saint of unfinished business” after stumping mathematicians for 358 years with an incomplete formula.
While I’m not working on anything quite so complicated, it has started to feel as if some of my tasks may take 358 years to complete!
Ironically, I saw the doodle while helping my mother sort through a printing project that had spun ridiculously out of control!
While she’s a big believer in patron saints (constantly invoking St. Anthony – patron saint of lost things), I don’t think she’ll be requesting Pierre’s help anytime soon.
Here’s to a Thursday filled with peaceful resolutions!
P.S. Ironically this post messed up my blog template yesterday after I posted it! Thank goodness for Google so I could figure out what the heck happened...phew!
