    Map Can't... Stop... Mapping...

    I seem to have a problem.

    It was pointed out to me by my ex girlfriend when she was cleaning up her apartment. She found over a dozen post-it notes around the place with mini maps on them.

    Stuff like this (she photographed this one to send along)

    Oh, that's brilliant

    I've been known to leave wierd notes behind when grocery shopping or visiting friends, but never a map

    I do the same thing for cars, super heroes, logo designs, cartoons, and ornaments but never maps. You should see a doctor and maybe they can prescribe a topical ointment to clear that up Good stuff man and keep on mappin.

    I have these log sheets at the lab I work where I'm supposed to keep track of chemicals used, and about a dozen of them have little maps doodled on them.

    I feel your pain, Dyson.

    Heh, I'm like that at work. Not so much with doodled maps, but with little note about procedures and techniques to try. And, of course, I always forget them when I'm ready to head for home and try them out.

    It's all good though, cause it leaves my co-workers wondering what kind of nutcase I am.

    When nothing is going right and you can't find someone else to blame, start beating your head against the wall, 'cause it'll feel so much better when you stop.

    That's a cool little map. I always have stacks of used paper (stuff printed on one side - flip over and use blank side) that I use to write down ideas, draw rough maps, doodle strange little creatures/character/weird designs, and so on. Often I do all of the above on the same piece of paper. No matter what room I'm in, I usually have a small stack on a clip board so I can brainstorm and jot down ideas (especially if I'm sitting in front of the TV). Once I finish reusing the paper, then it gets recycled.
