Today, Rob tells the Gemini:

How well are you capitalizing on this year's unique opportunities, Gemini? Now that we're halfway through 2008, let's take an inventory. I'm hoping that six months from now, you'll look back and make the following declaration: "This year I've learned more about togetherness and collaboration than I'd picked up in the previous five years combined. I've finally registered the fact that a successful alliance of any kind requires as much hard work as any job. Most of my important relationships are better and more interesting, and the rest have faded away. I've surprised myself with how creative I've been in finding interesting ways to handle commitment."

Huh. Well, that all fits in well with kid-raising and kid-wrangling, both in dealing with Shanna and with Krissy.

To Leo, Rob says:

We're halfway through 2008. It's time to take inventory of how well you're capitalizing on this year's unique opportunities. So let me ask you, Leo: Have you been redefining your relationship to your job so that it better serves the real you? Are you invoking all your imaginative powers so as to get into a position in which you will love work more than ever before? I hope you've been doing those things, because it means you've primed yourself to attract lots of help in accomplishing those changes.

And to that, I say "huh." Just, y'know, "huh."
