Party on, Garth

So here it is New Year’s Eve… I’m going to visit with some friends until probably about 1:00 AM. We’re going to watch the (classic version) Wicker Man with Christopher Lee. Excellent movie. Should be fun.

Gadget Girl

I’m a geek. First one to admit it. I’ve had bosses who haven’t known what to do with me because I am so into technology. I think gadgets are fun and amazing. I am an early adopter of technology. Maybe it’s the science fiction writer in me that loves the Read more…

NGO-In-A-Box

One of the technical writing mailing lists I’m on posted a link to a site with freeware/open source software listings. This site, NGO-In-a-Box, provides a list of open source or freeware software geared towards a specific purpose: audio/video editing, desktop publishing, etc. The Audio/Video site looks excellent. Unfortunately the desktop Read more…

Where has Ceffyl been?

I’ve been really sick for the past 10 days or so. A good percentage of my office mates have had the current plague (sinus infection or kidney stones seems like) since Thanksgiving. I came down with the sinus infection stuff a week and a half ago. It culiminated on a Read more…

Party Aftermath

The party was fun. I got to see a bunch of people I haven’t seen I a few months. You know when most of your friends have kids because they think 9:00 PM is late. Overall, a nice stress free evening at the party. Because I was at this party, Read more…

Crazy crazy day

Today is NUTS: Horse sitting at 8:00 AM. Plumber at 10:00 AM to fix the toilet. House cleaning/laundry until 1:00 PM. Cat-sitting for another friend at about 3:00 PM. Shopping for last-minute items for Christmas party. Co-hostessing a party starting at 5:00 PM. Cleaning up after said party. Driving home Read more…

Firefly as MMORG

According to an article in Wired: “Like Capt. Mal Reynolds stumbling in after a bar fight, the short-lived but much beloved sci-fi series Firefly will soon make an unexpected return, not as a TV show, but as a massively multiplayer online game.” The game is being developed by Multiverse (whose Read more…

Windows Live Local

Apparently another Microsoft project. According to some posts on Slashdot this morning, Microsoft has started a city-by-city project to capture every street. The first two cities are Seattle and San Francisco. It’s an interesting idea, but it makes you wonder. Are they going to edit out every person who might Read more…

Play Time with Kiesha

Every night at about 10:00 PM Kiesha loses her mind and her evil twin emerges. About that time, I’ll hear a high pitched meow (where Kiesha gets her nickname of ‘Squeaky’) and the scritch-scratch of Kiesha clawing on the back of the couch. It’s like a mating call: ‘Come play Read more…

Dance Class

Dance class was a BLAST tonight! First, we were drilled on some techniques. The instructor really worked us hard — which was great. And tiring. For some reason, it is easier for me to learn more complicated dance moves than it is very simple ons. We were layering dance moves Read more…
