  1. Here’s a little something to brighten your day (if you’re anything like me).

    I happened to catch this interesting article on Yahoo! today: Top 10 Tech Train Wrecks of 2007″ by Ben Patterson. Just goes to show that even the richest, most corporately-beautiful companies can be humbled by tripping on their own two feet on the virtual runway.. Does liking the article for this particular reason make me a horrible cynic? :) 

  2. So where have I been?

    November 28, 2007 by Danielle

    My absence can be attributed in part to the fact that the hard drive on my work computer got totally fried some how (the big joke around work is that it got V.D. from the crap we look at), and unfortunately for my employer I do a substantial part of my updating from my office.  So anyways I am updating from home, for the first time on my new Mac!!! Mike finally broke me down and I got one, and so far I love it. It’s so much more me-ish. Only complaint I have so far is that I don’t have the FTP thing to update this site with lots of pictures all at once, I have some from our NH/VT trip & Thanksgiving. Today Kristen & I went shopping after class, and for less than $50 I got my outfit for the work Christmas party:     I hope you love my Christmas decorations as much as I love them, too. I bought a book at some used bookshop in Burlington, VT, and it’s pretty good so far. It’s called “A Woman’s Book of Life” by Joan Borysenko. She breaks the female life down into 12 cycles that are 7 years long each, and discusses the biological, psychological & spiritual aspects of each. It’s so interesting and insightful, I’m learning alot about myself as well as women around me. It makes me proud to be a woman, and intolerant of these men (such as Aristotle) who insist that women are just “incomplete men.” Or scientists who consider us to be men with breasts, ovaries & a uterus. (I want a t-shirt that says I am more than just a uterus! Ha) But seriously, I have been getting into the whole women’s studies thing lately, especially in philosophy class; which I suppose is a good affirmation, seeing as I want to eventually be a women’s health nurse practitioner. Also, oddly enough I was talking to my therapist today about it (who specializes in women), and it turns out she has the book too. Speaking of which, today I realized I don’t even know why I go see her anymore, I’ve cut my appointments down to monthly, and I’m as sane as I’m gonna get. I can’t bring myself to stop going I guess, I just love sitting there and chatting with her, catching up.. I mean I’ve known her for 5 years. That’s all for now, I suppose. Lots of picture to come soon, hopefully!!
