1. Typo of the day on an order form: “You’ve seen the movie, now read the boob!”
2. I realize that there are a lot of people who don’t speak French, so let me give you a teensy lesson. The “SVP” in “RSVP” stands for s’il vous plait, which means please. Therefore, when you say “Please RSVP,” you’re being redundant, so leave it at “RSVP” and be done with it. The test is next week; study hard.
3. Why is it that the day goes by so much more slowly when I’m cranking out easy newsletters? If I’m working on a four-pager plus a huge calendar, I’ll be done with it and two to three hours will have gone by.
4. I’m so accustomed to laying out using InDesign that it’s almost instinct now. Occasionally, the realization hits me that I’m clicking around, changing styles, moving text blocks, lining them up, placing graphics and doing countless other things as if they were all second nature. I don’t even have to think about it. I’ll just leave it at that… because that speaks volumes.
