Now onto the other unexpected thing. This one was another story and it was posted on my facebook page wall. Since that's already pretty public, I hope it's okay that I share it here as well...and I quote:
I have to say that I was, to borrow a British phrase, a bit gobsmacked. A few years ago I went to The Maker Faire in San Mateo and was recognized by a few people who had seen me on the internet and this is kind of like that only without me actually being there. It's weird, but also wonderful and most assuredly unexpected.
Since yesterday's plea for unexpected things bore fruit I think I'm going to ask for an amazing project or opportunity today. It could work two days in a row...you never know, right? As a fall back I still have the bag to work on once the mask is complete, so no harm in throwing that out into the Universe. We'll alliteratively call it the power of positive posting.
