I had my nine year old going for awhile when he asked what to do with the March calendar page he’d just taken down. I told him to save it because it would be March again in two weeks. He’s a bright kid, he knows it’s April Fools Day, but he fell for it. Even [...]

I’ve been a big fan of Trey Ratcliff’s photography since last summer. The type of photos he does are called
The other night I had all those great ideas that I lost (I was able to recover a couple of them, but of course in the daylight they don’t seem so great.) But the other morning, just before I woke up, I had a dream of a product I think is genius! There’s a technology [...]
To all embroiled in the scary situation involving Kathy Sierra (which, sadly, is nothing new, I’ve been called horrible things on the internet myself, and I’ve seen people take internet fights into real life): Please take this opportunity to use your power and influence to open a dialog about what we will and won’t accept [...]
Last night as I was attempting to get to sleep early for once, my brain switched into overdrive. All kinds of wonderful, easily implemented ideas came flooding in. I lay there both wanting desperately to fall asleep because I was just exhausted, and wanting to leap out of bed and scribble down all these ideas [...]
I tried something new today, having my groceries delivered. I know a number of people who’ve done it and, while I wouldn’t say they’ve raved, they seem happy with the service. No problems with bad or bruised produce or nearly expired meats. There’s the occasional busted egg, but I hear that they’re quick to respond [...]
Get yer minds outta the gutter. WDW is opening a new attraction based on Monsters Inc. It’s called Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor. The Disney fan forums are having fun with that one already.
I’m late to this party (not too late!) but this is pretty awesome. Bum Rush the Charts is an effort by a group of podcasters to get a specific independent song to the top of the iTunes chart on Thursday March 22. That’s tomorrow. Why? Well, this is what the site says: Podcasting gets little [...]
I’ve joined the blogging community 2k Bloggers. It’s a pretty cool idea. My favorite part is the
Well, I’m back. Still thinking. Why am I posting about my day? Because I like reading about other people who are trying to do what I’m trying to do, that is, accomplish a few goals and not let the time waste away. So I figure maybe someone else will want to read about how it [...]
I have about 20 minutes left to myself, before I’m obligated to shift into mom mode. Things most definitely didn’t go as planned today, and I’m trying to figure out why. I woke up dragging, didn’t feel refreshed at all. I considered dropping back into bed for an hour after my sons left for school, [...]
I’ve been really looking forward to This American Life coming to Showtime (this Thursday) but one of the things that really makes TAL so different on the radio is the pacing, or maybe the lack of pacing, just people talking about stuff. How can that translate to television? Apparently, this is how: The art is [...]
I stopped by to visit with my parents today, and my dad mentioned that he’d missed a show on WNYC (the New York NPR station) that he’d wanted to hear. Dad, welcome to podcasts! He has iTunes and an iPod Shuffle, so it was simple enough to walk him through the steps to the treasure [...]
I thought Twittermap was pretty cool, but today debuts Twittervision! I may never be productive again. Both of these are from one guy.Â I wonder what others will come up with?
I’m reading all the love notes to and diatribes against Twitter. Slow down, people! Some people, including me, think maybe you’re all taking this way too seriously. Maybe (and likely) I’m not typical because I’m not in the industry (whatever that may mean.) I’m just a blogger who blogs for fun. Twitter is just another [...]
