in which donuts are consumed

I’m out of coffee, so Ellison and I took a stroll and picked up a latte and some donuts. I love donuts. It’s not even the sugar - I really wish I could get raised donuts without any glaze. Then I would buy them by the flat and eat them for every meal of every [...]

above my means

Zen as I might be about socioeconomic status, there’s still a part of me that gets off on being able to Afford Things. Nice things. Things like my prettypretty BlackBerry Pearl or our multitude of Apple products. That part of me really, really wants to join this snooty athletic club that’s $100 a month and [...]

missing sync

So I got sick of my BlackBerry Pearl - which I still love unreasonably, by the way - not playing nicely with my Mac and downloaded the Missing Sync the other day. Oh my god, it is cool. My phone suddenly has this whole new level of functionality. I can upload! And download! Things are [...]

if somewhat zaftig, at least well-dressed

My friend cleaned out her closets the other day and gave me all her fat clothes. As she is someone of impeccable style, this was somewhat like Christmas…albeit a depressing and demoralizing Christmas. So, just like Christmas!
Suddenly my closet contains more than just some skirts and a single, sad business suit that never really [...]

BlackBerry love

I’m posting this from my BlackBerry Pearl, which I have to say is pretty seriously cool. Not as cool: the fact that the internet is down at the office *again*. WTF, ISP?

seeing red

Today = World AIDS Day. Be an activist: even a small gesture is better than no gesture at all. In the spirit of the gift-giving season, I recommend signing up at (product)red and keeping your eye out for products that support the Global Fund.

out and about

Guess where I’m posting? The office! We finally have internet access. You probably thought we had ironed that whole thing out a couple of months ago, and to that I can only say: so did we. Turns out, a roof mounted antenna? Doesn’t work so well when the building owners decide to redo the roof. [...]

my kind of fairy

At 11 months (well, almost), Happy Fun Baby’s vocabulary is at a whopping four words: “ghee” for “kitty,” “luh” for “love,” “ba” for “ball” and “da” for “yeah.” “Do you want to go downstairs?” I ask. “Da,” says the baby. It’s like living with a little Russian diplomat.
I’m pretty sure yesterday (and today)’s crying [...]

sleep dep and surprises

The baby woke up at 8am and spent the morning in a series of meltdowns. He’s begun stomping his feet when he’s angry or frustrated. It’s incredibly cute and incredibly endearing and doesn’t he need to be a little older before temper tantrums come into play?
About an hour ago he stopped crying long enough to [...]
