Please make it stop…

I am suffering from a massive headache. It’s actually been going on since last night. It feels like a low-level migraine or a withdrawal headache, but I haven’t given up anything that my body would be complaining about. Unless it...

Hi, I’m urban bohemian, and I’m a clothes-a-holic…

Recognizing that I have a problem is the first step, right?* This entire week, every night’s self-assigned chore has been clean out the closet. To date, I’ve barely managed to get old dry-cleaning plastic bags into the trash. How the...

I can’t believe I missed this…

Thanks to Kris for reminding me to catch the liveblogs of Apple’s “Beat Goes On” event today. Some pretty impressive offerings, and some amazing results. I’ll trust TUAW’s summary for just the facts: iTunes update tonight with ringtones: an extra...

Happy Ann-adverse-ary!

Four years ago today I got the call. My manager called up to tell me that two weeks hence, my position would no longer exist. If only Fired! had existed back then, I might have felt a lot better about...

I feel WAY behind the curve on this one

I’m behaving when it comes to lunch, especially considering that we still have limited access to our building’s atrium after a window broke and fell from the 5th floor. So this morning I’m bringing in my yogurt and a frozen...

Ok, perhaps that was a bit too much food

But oh so good. One of the best things about overeating at brunch is bringing home leftovers that you can heat up that night. In the oven no less! We hit Clyde’s and polished off: a dozen oysters, brioche french...

It’s all about how you sell it.

Are you watching Mad Men yet? If so, good, because I’m almost ready to start a weekend discussion group about it. If not… why?! I have to admit, I was only mildly curious about the show because I’m a fan...

Praise the Lord, but dump the Lourdes’

This is the kind of thing that cracks me up, then gives me the ol’ “The world has lost its damn mind” curmudgeon rant. At least the travelers were warned, but did they really think there would be an exception...

Ongoing improvements

In addition to being a somewhat productive day at the office… ok, not really. It was Duffy’s last day and we took a bit of a long lunch, and then there was the administrivia of getting his stuff signed out...

This was the final straw?

YouTube disabled my account.. I’ve been cut off from the world of grainy amateur video backed by heavy metal music. No more vintage TV shows which will never been seen broadcast again. No more endless spoofs of current events. No...

Pardon our dust…

I’m having a little fun with a new template. I haven’t settled on a color scheme or the complete layout yet, but I don’t want to sit in front of this computer all night long unless it’s to play something...

Lest I forget…

Get this Heroes countdown widget! Just over a month to go — *squee! There are some previews and promos out on the web and I realize I’m getting pretty excited about the return of the series. I have done absolutely...
