A Work First

A good way to keep things fresh in any situation is to experience something novel in the targeted environment every once in a while. For example, tomorrow I am going to be sitting in a 4-hour meeting. This event is something that I have experienced before. Now, to switch things up, halfway through the 4-hour meeting, I have scheduled an official cookie break. Sure, I've eaten bunches of cookies in the afternoon before, but never have I had a scheduled appointment for the eating of said cookies.

I'm curious to know if there will be a black and white cookie in the Specialty's mix as those are, of late, my favorite kind, but more than that, I wonder how I will announce the cookie break. Should I suggest it? "Cookies, anyone?" Or should I make it more of an announcement? "Cookie time!" Would interrupting the meeting to ring a small bell to signal the arrival of the cookies be too much? I'm not sure, but I do hope everyone else likes the cookie break as much as I will.

If, having observed the ridiculousness of the above black and white Specialty's cookie, you would like to join the meeting in order to partake in the cookie break, this could probably be arranged if you have many intelligent things to contribute on the topic of technology. Or you could just bring the small bell and we could call it even.

I also have meeting today with scheduled break: ours are brownies though. I may have a small nap through the second half.

It's all about the cookie break ... love the ringing of the bell to signal it's time :)

That looks delicious. The thought of sugar is making me delirious.

I really like the bell idea. That could provide some amusing diversion to the "meeting".

I'm casting my vote for a Pavlov-style bell and for the accompanying phrase "Cookie Time!!!!" or "Cookie O'Clock!!!!"

I'm waiting for you to put out a invite to meet you at work on Doughnut Day - promise to have the bell on me. : )

I have been meaning to ask you how one submits their blog to Google for Blog Of Note consideration. I remember you writing a while back about submitting yours, but I can never seem to find the info on how to do it when I search the blogger site. Thanks!

Hi Daniella,

I don't believe there is an "official" way as the people on the Blogger team just seem to post blogs they like, BUT, it does help to help them notice your blog by tweeting them, which is what I did. I think they are @blogger

Hope that helps! Good luck!

Ahh -- the old Stand Out In A Crowd method. Thanks for the info!
