I've read a few "day in the life" items recently:
The librarian's world and welcome to it
I remember Creating Keepsakes doing a story on that "day in the life" theme. The idea was that the magazine editors picked one day and then readers would create a scrapbook layout for that day. Then of course, we all get to see the results. (Provided the scrapbooking techniques were up to snuff as well.)
Maybe I'll pick a day and do the "day in the life" on this blog one day. It will be easier than trying to do the scrapbook layout.
