Ever since I had a post that did big numbers on tumblr I’m more hesitant about hitting the heart on really popular posts, like Ugh maybe the OP is sick of this dumb thing and wish it would stop getting notifications. This is a legit problem in our society

Here’s a pic of the wonderfully indispensable Nozlee Samadzadeh, producer of The Morning News Tournament of Books, at last night’s event at Housing Works. Rosecrans Baldwin, co-founder of both The Morning News and the ToB looks on admiringly, as do we all.
If you didn’t make it out last night, you missed out on watching a lot of highbrow lit crit folks downing shots of Sriracha and then talking about their favorite books of the past year. There was also a lot of free booze from our media partners at Tumblr. To everyone who made it out, great seeing you and thanks for coming!

I invented the mash-up. It was 1990 and I was at rehearsal for my town’s production of Hello Dolly, playing piano warmups with the singers when I noticed that you could sing the lyrics to Surrey With The Fringe On Top from Oklahoma over the music from Turn Back O Man from Godspell. I was like Wait listen to this and everyone was like Hey yeah that kinda works. Anyways you’re welcome.

Talked excitedly about Excel on two publishing calls this past week. May officially be Ben Wyatt.

I was messing around in Excel today and I figured out how to use CONCATENATE to take the first letters of a list of first & last names and turn it into a list of initials.
But wait, the story doesn’t end there.
Then I needed to put that list into another spreadsheet and I learned about PASTE SPECIAL so that it pasted the actual values and not just a list of formulas. It was a really successful day basically on all accounts and I was like DAMN who can I talk about this with, I learned some cool things about a cool software program today, I want to share this moment with someone? And I felt like I had no one? But I had Amy, all along I had Amy. Zoom Image

whathappened:

Most of the messages are generic yearbook stuff: it was fun having class with you; have a great summer; see you in high school!!! Some of them were a little passive-aggressive: you are kind of annoying but funny (fair); you are loud (also fair); have fun with your brothers (what?).

Elisabets: Choice Horses and Notes to Self by Elisabeth Geier (aka whathappened)

This week on the Yearbook Office, I wrote about shutting down the bullies within. Plus some other stuff.

This is really great
