oops: Busted!

It’s about as much of a secret that I used to love the show Mythbusters as it is that I think it’s now gotten stale and played out. At this point, it’s a wonder they haven’t done a “jump the...

twitter: happy hour

Last night, a friend mentioned–rightfully so–that it had been ages since we’d seen each other. I offered the following retort, which I will admit, is very true… Not that I’m a lush or anything, I just like getting together with friends and having a few drinks and laughs.

A disturbing bit of patter overheard this morning while listening to the news on our local Fox station. Mostly we just watch to see what the weather is like and if our metro commute will be impacted by anything.

culture: twitter “welcomes” Kanye

As noted by TechCrunch, last year after the Taylor Swift fiasco, Kanye West couldn’t be bothered with twitter and was annoyed–to say the least–by all the fake accounts that popped up to mock him. Well clearly he’s come around on...

on the elevator: blondist

I was on the elevator a few minutes ago to let a new employee in through security. I had my coffee in one hand, iPhone in the other. We have wi-fi in the building and I was being an obsessive...

happy hour: Afterglow

In case you haven’t been following my twitter or Facebook account… I’m almost done with radiation therapy! Barring any complications, Tuesday will be my last day for treatment, the lesions have responded really well and are nearly gone with only...

culture: “Man up!”

I take issue with the phrase in general, but is it an indicator of another cultural shift in the way we’re viewing men and gender roles?
