I’m Completely Unable to Keep My Commitments

I just don’t have enough hours in the day. Jane is now a seasoned CIT with exactly one day of work under her belt. When I picked her up from camp yesterday at three she plopped into the passenger seat and started talking. At 4.30 she stopped talking. It was abrupt, she was finished. She had observed that five year olds don’t have filters and they tell you the truth. They also tell the truth when playing things like Fireball. They admit to being out when the ball grazes them. …

The Craziest Day Ever: Brought To You By Microsoft Kinect, Mc Donalds and The LAFD

Yesterday was the first Monday of Summer Vacation. The kids went to camp, and I began to tackle the 800 chores that were neglected for end of school festivities.

Tiffany boldly navigated traffic the likes of which I have never seen before, and then we all waited in line. Oh, and …

I Cannot Function With Microsoft: Someone Get Me A Typewriter

I have a stunning new computer that is fast, quiet and hard working. The only thing my computer needs is an operating system. Oh, and some software. You see, every time I copy and paste into Microsoft Word (my OS is Vista) it crashes and gives me a DEP message. DEP is Data Execution Protection, execution is right, it kills my work. I follow the advice (given by Microsoft while using their operating system and their software) and manually whitelist Word so DEP won’t make it crash. It crashes. I …

IRL I’m Also Prickly: Microsoft BizSpark Party In Los Angeles

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Microsoft BizSpark party in LA. I did not win the gaming console *le sigh* my children are the last two in the developed world who have been denied gaming systems. Eh, the Mac Laptops my mother showers them with will have to make due. I’m giving you a very brief recap because I’ve got a tennis match in 45 minutes I’m really busy today and I’m going to the premiere of Marley and Me this evening. Yari, I’m all about Team …
