    Evaluating Career Opportunities: It’s Not Just About the Numbers

    • 15 Comments
    Here's an article I wrote recently for Pragmatic Marketing , which appeared in their February newsletter. Thought I'd reprint here and share a little link love. And for the record, I am not the one that used the word "expert" to describe myself; that...

    As far as I am concerned, spring has sprung. Boing!

    • 16 Comments
    (A blog post that is going to bore the hell out of 49% of my readers) It may have been the insane weather yesterday; temps in the fifties, sun out, windows open with me feeling a little disoriented (and it looks like today is more of the same...whee...

    Gary Coleman

    • 23 Comments
    So Gary Coleman says he's secretly been married. Well, really? Is it a secret when nobody cares? I (vaguely) remember when the media was used to tell people things of importance, not help disgraced child stars hold on to a shred of career prospect...

    I watched the Super Bowl Ads so You Don't Have To

    • 9 Comments
    Super bowl, blah, blah. I wasn't that interested this year. I don't have any ties to either team (which is a little rare considering the number of places I have lived). When it comes to picking a team, I consider whether I have lived in either place ...

    Looking for Dim Sum

    • 10 Comments
    Can anyone from Seattle recommend a place for Dim Sum; preferrably in the international district? I'm ready for another culinary adventure and it's been years since I tried Dim Sum. I want to give it another go.

    A few things either not worth a whole blog post or else I am lazy... ...you may be wondering what I know about the Microsoft/Yahoo thing. I know about as much as you do (though I have to chuckle a little bit at the google response). No matter what...

    Just sick enough

    • 12 Comments
    I generally pride myself on my good health. You know, healthy eating, going to the gym, never getting sick. Unfortunatley I said those last three words last week and this is what I get. Allergy season(s), spring and fall, start off with a sore throat...

    My friends are cooler than your friends

    This is my friend Lindsey, who I had lunch with today: < She told me about this (which happened more than 10 years ago but still) but I had never seen it until I checked out her website ! I also think I recall that she got in trouble for that...

    Don't Tase Me, Bro

    • 2 Comments
    This is what I did today . I'm watching it online so I can hear the bits I missed. The lines outside Key Arena were incredibly long and by the time I got about half-way to the front, security told us the arena was full. Damn. The lady next to me told...

    Celebrity Apprentice Task 4: A Knight on Broadway

    • 0 Comments
    Yeah, this Apprentice thing is pretty much proof that I am a bad person or at least undisciplined. OK, neither of those but I'm still not loving these Apprentice updates. This week (well the week of task 4) was particularly rough because I thought the...

    Celebrity Apprentice....sorry

    • 4 Comments
    That last recap took me about 3 hours. I can't do it anymore. I'm a quitter, but I am a quitter with good taste. It's just that I don't have any extra work time and I am not willing to give up any extra personal time for it. I'll try to proviude comments...

    Quarter of 6 pm on a clear day in February, fifty degrees. My neighbors are in their backyard playing rap music, BBQing and playing badminton. My neighborhood is just the kind of weird that I like.

    I find it troubling that the word "fridge" has a 'd' in it and refrigerator does not. Who says that's OK?

    Still sick...jeez

    • 11 Comments
    I haven't been writing because I've been sick and the last thing you want to do when you are sick is anything that requires an attention span of more than a few minutes. I'm not telling you this because I feel guilty; I don't. I'm just filling up that...

    Men, women and competition

    Over on the Freakonomics blog, there's an interesting post on men , women and the nature of competition in society. I have to admit that I hate conversations that include declarations like "men are so" and "why are women so". This actually came up in...

    Eating at Microsoft

    • 4 Comments
    Here's an article on food services at Microsoft. Working from home, I don't eat on campus that frequently. Plus, I definitely experienced the freshman fifteen before I got my act together and started going to the Pro Club. I do find dining on campus to...
