What did the koala bear drink during lunch?

Koka-Koala, the beverage that’s sweeping the treetops.

Master Small Talk

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Making polite conversation can be tough. Here are some strategies:

1. Comment on a topic common to both of you at the moment. Talk about the food, the room, the occasion, the weather. “How do you know our host?” “What brings you to this event?” But keep it on the positive side! Unless you can be hilariously funny, the first time you come in contact with a person isn’t a good time to complain.

2. Comment on a topic of general interest. Start talking about an interesting news item, a recent movie, or a book that’s getting a lot of buzz. It can be helpful to think of a few possibilities ahead of time.

3. React to what a person says. Do so in the spirit in which the comment was offered. If someone makes a joke, even if it’s not very funny, try to laugh.

Mark Milestones

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

Milestone moments are opportunities for evaluation and reflection. Use a milestone such as a major birthday, marriage, divorce, a reunion, a death, a birth, or the accomplishment (or not) of a career marker as a catalyst for change.

Day after my birthday

Sunday, May 06, 2012

“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”
—Steve Martin

I had a great time yesterday celebrating my birthday. First off, my girlfriend & I went to Steak n' Shake for breakfast - I had their apple pecan cranberry salad which was really yummy. Then we went garage saling even though it was pretty chilly & drizzly out. We found quite a few sales going out despite the weather and I got a couple of little items as well!

Then, my husband & I went to see "The Lucky One" with Zac Efron (sigh). It was a great movie - we both enjoyed it. Then we went to Ruby Tuesday for my free hamburger - delicious! Free is always good, right? Then, I got my free scoop of ice cream (pistachio almond) at Baskin Robbins.

All in all - a great birthday celebration!

Thanks to all my SparkFriends for their birthday wishes & goodies. You all made my day much brighter, too!!
