    Passive Aggressive with style

    • 4 Comments
    Don't even bother going here unless you have a good amount of time to kill. People must be under some serious pressure to actually leave passive aggressive notes like these (no, I never have). They certainly did not spend the morning meditating. Fortunately...

    In the west, I believe that we think in binary. Something is either horrible or awesome, but rarely a mix of both (I have another post about this and it involves Sharon Stone. Excited?). That doesn't work for me because sometimes things are both awesome...

    I know where they hide the good stuff

    • 3 Comments
    For my lack of athletic prowess, I have been awarded one talent. I don't necessarily consider myself a talented person. But the one talent I will proudly admit to is this: I know where they hide the good stuff. Or more appropriately, I know where to find...

    Whoah, interesting weather weekend. When I hear the weather folks here talking about the "extreme heat", I have to laugh a little bit. I like heat. I like to sweat; it feels very cleansing. Plus, there is nothing like a cold salad and a glass of Chardonnay...

    I thought this was really cool. Especially since I've been staying up to watch the Olympics and have to eventually fall asleep every night (did you notice that? I actually fall asleep every night). It's nice to know that I can get video of the events...

    Olympics Impressions

    • 4 Comments
    So, you know, I am totally into the Olympics. They will pretty much be on whenever I have a free moment. Obsessive much? I'm a little too preoccupied with actually watching the Olympics, and work and stuff to recap them in any way. I have learned not...

    I think I mentioned that my team, this year, is supporting strategic dev centers with competitive research and programs (I know...you have no idea what that means). Anyway, I am learning as much as I can, as fast as I can, about the 6 development cetners...

    The earth may have fallen off its axis

    I just don't understand how to explain why this makes me like Paris Hilton just a little tiny bit. I'm thinking about wearing a hoochie dress and hair extensions to watch the convention. I also don't understand why John McCain says he watches The Hills...

    Was at a meeting in the city today and pleated pants were all over the place. I am dismayed. Mother of pearl, those is some ugly pants. Please tell all of your friends that they are not allowed to wear pleated pants (man or woman, no matter). The lack...

    That one dream about teeth

    • 20 Comments
    Have you ever had that one dream about teeth? The one where your teeth start falling out and you can do nothing to stop it? I understand it's pretty common and it's about control. What a surprise. I have that dream now and then. Actually, it's kind of...

    Subtitle: How I learned to love geeks. It didn't happen immediately when I joined Microsoft. I think I was fully primed to appreciate geek-hood but I was not totally there yet. "Accept" and "appreciate" are two different things. I have a natural tendency...
