Wow!. Thanks for the gift certificate for being last week's Ninja Training winner. I'll have to see if Amazon sells Ninja outfits. though my colleagues here at the foundation office may be curious about why I am dressed that way.

I started receiving congratulation emails in response to this announcement and thought it was an elaborate April Fools' prank. Thanks again!

One of my prankster colleagues put pairs of plastic eyeballs all over my office on April Fools Day! There were eyes everywhere, but the ones on my Ninja pin were the best!! I can’t seem to post a photo to show you.

Plastic cockroaches all over the office. We still randomly find some years later!

A blogger I follow posted that she was naming her unborn child "Celery". I considered unfollowing her before she popped the April Fools post!
