    Dear Blog

    Dear Blog, This isn't the type of thing that I should write in a letter but I'm not sure I can tell you to your face. I have tried to tell you before, but every time you open in my browser window and look at me like that, it reminds me how much I love...

    How do you tell a 6 year old her cat died?

    • 17 Comments
    Oh, I feel horrible. This summer, I bought my friends' daughter a kitten. I was so excited, she was so excited. There are pictures over on my facebook page. M is a special kid. Her parents told me that it looked like Rainbow (yes, that's what she named...

    Recycler guilt

    • 15 Comments
    I have recycler guilt. I check everything for recyclability (huh?). I wash out the containers so my recycling bin doesn't get stinky. As we know, I hate "stinky". Unless it's pleasantly stinky (gasoline, magic markers), then I love it in a lightheaded...

    Companeee Namez

    • 8 Comments
    I admit that I, too, find the ubiquity of goo-goo-gaa-gaa named companies a bit hard to take. They all start to sound alike and it's just plain marketing laziness. I can't believe that the target market for all of these (mostly) services is that unsophisticated...

    I'm gonna party like it's 1999

    • 8 Comments
    It practically is 1999. Not only is our stock at it's highest since August 2000 (virtually 1999 from a fashion perspective), but the Hamilton household is now fully equipped with Digital Cable, a DVR and an HDTV purchased with the sale of stock before...

    Another Restaurant I Love

    • 8 Comments
    I have been trying to test out more restaurants and the fact that my friend Denise just rejoined Microsoft and flies in from San Diego regularly has given me a perfectly enjoyable excuse to do that. We try to go out to someplace nice each time she is...

    It's like all my little girl dreams coming true at once

    Today I get to live one of my recruiting fantasies. Only it's totally real. And it's totally my day off. One of the huge challenges in recruiting is getting the information you need to build a prospect profile. Back in the day, when I was a line recruiter...

    Where can I get some shorts like that? I miss the eighties. Rationalizing your guilty pleasure is fun :)

    Did you know we have a careers newsletter?

    • 4 Comments
    OK, trying not to sound like too much of a corporate flack here, but I figured that many of you could be interested in this but perhaps didn't know about it. We publish a monthly newsletter with info about career management and job search strategies,...

    Who put the Tablet PC input panel next to the IE back button? WHO? I need to know. Driving me nuts!

    Microsoft and Office Space

    • 3 Comments
    A couple articles recently on Microsoft and office space. I am liking the look of the new research building, and also noticing that while people do manual labor, a bunch of other people stand around and talk. I love the idea of offices with sliding doors...

    Contextual weirdness

    • 0 Comments
    It's probably time for me to get back to some regular blogging. Sheesh. I was in Arizona this past week, spending time with family (including my awesome Aunt Di) and friends. We went to the USC v. Arizona State game. It was really sad to see so many...
