I should post cheerfulier stuff here.
Oh, hey, I got two more compliments about last week's PowerPoint presentation today! One was from a co-worker with whom I don't get along particularly well. No actual animosity or anything, just different "approaches" to the job, so we tend not to travel in the same circles (which means cliques). The other person (an admin "insider") told me the principal was very happy with the presentation, because the NASA Explorer Schools rep was happy with it.
Thanx again to last year's mccloudtour for showing me how a PowerPoint presentation should be done! My efforts certainly aren't on par with those of Team McCloud, but integrating even a bit of the McCloud Method does wonders to jazz up a typical (dull) slide show.
