Apparently I didn't get the memo because I was the only person in the office who wasn't wearing green.

I wore this:



Which would be perfect for Valentine's Day. A kind colleague loaned me a green "Kiss Me I'm Irish" button which got me precisely one kiss. Pinch me!

I have been working on the Federated States of Micronesia and the Republic of the Marshall Islands today. Did you know that there is a Compact of Free Association between those two countries and the U.S.? I wonder how they got that status and not the Philippines?

Because the Philippines wanted real independence? Or, at least, felt they were an economically viable entity on their own, as opposed to the Marshalls and Carolines, which survive on US subsidies (as I understand it).

I did a little more reading - at least the Philippines wasn't a nuclear testing ground!

Good for you! I hate holidays that try to tell me what I can and cannot wear, and I will smack the next person who tells me I need to be wearing green or wonders that my hair is purple/fuschia instead of green.

That's a cute top.

Oh, OH!

There's a high probability of there being a Grilled Cheese Invitational in DC in June. You know what that means? You got it! I'll be in your neck of the woods!
