What a day!

Yesterday was my 39th birthday (it's after midnight). I had such a fabulous surprise waiting for me when I showed up to work. The first thing I encountered was this at the top of the back stairwell:




(here's a closer look)
I nearly fell to the ground in laughter! It was so uh, appropriate??

I went straight to Summer, my Medical Assistant, and thanked her for the laugh. I knew whe was behind it. She looked at me and grinned and said, "OK, but so, you haven't yet been to your office, I see..."

Oh no, I thought. And look what I found there!



And that's just the door! There were streamers and balloons inside and outside my office and along the border of my desk. And there was a cake with little running shoes on it with desert plants and bones.



But the BEST thing was the picture. Remember my "Bells & floods" post? Well, Summer made about 25 copies of that picture of all different sizes, and it was up on the wall EVERYWHERE...with bubble sayings that people in the office wrote. And it was just friggin' hilarious! There were even pictures on the back of the bathroom door! Boy, did that one catch me off guard!

Here's one of my favorites:



Are these guys not the BEST!?

And there's more, but I can't brag so much about my colleagues here. I'll just give you the link to some more pictures for fun (or for birthday ideas for the loved one).

It's been a great day as far as Birthdays go. I don't mind being 29 at all. :)

Hey Lisa, You have to create an EMBED CODE to ADD to the blog...

so you have to Upload the video to a service that will do that..... the best free way to do this is YouTube...

First create a FREE YouTube account. www.youtube.com

Second download free uploader software here

http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/guides
/dvd/upload-video-to-YouTube.htm

so once you have those two set up ... you will click on the uploader icon that's now on ur desktop and Browse ur PC for that wmv interview...
it will upload it to YouTube and create that EMBED Code that you will ADD into ur post were you type, you just copy & paste that code into the body of your post.

It's pretty easy once you are set up with a youtube account & the uploader software...

Have fun:-) Let me know if you have any other questions

Bob

Lisa B said...

Whoa! You ROCK, Bob! I'm working now and will have to try this later today.

ROCK!!

Lisa B said...

Hey Bob, can I email you direct? You Tube is telling me it's more than 10 min long...but it's not, not even 1/2 that..

Bob Gentile said...

Hey Lisa you can email me, my email is on my blog ...

I think that happened to me once and my video was only 3 mins... If you want you can send the interview wmv file over and I can try as well...

really don't make a difference who gets it as long as we get the embed code for you to post.

Bob Gentile said...

it's uploaded check ur email--woooo hooooo :-)

Bob Gentile said...

Hey Lisa not sure why U didn't get my email...I notice u have hotmail sometimes they fill up or block emails/spam filters....

I just sent another one...send me another email or give me ur number & I will call you and show u were the video is to upload

Thanks

Lisa Check this out: Blogger just added VIDEO UPLOADER right from ur PC..it's in beta testing .

Introducing Blogger... in draft
Today we released something for Blogger that we've long wanted to do - an experimental version of the site where the early adopters among you can try out new features before they're ready for full release. We're calling it Blogger in draft because the features are almost ready for publishing, but not quite.

The first feature available on Draft is Video Upload, accessible via a new button in the Post Editor. Check it out!
