Offense and Industry Part II

I had a feeling that I’d want to add a bit more to what I wrote yesterday, as it’s a complicated subject filled with a lot of tangents (me?? tangents??) and, quite frankly, emotion. The sad thing is, none of this is exceptionally new, and it usually follows a predictable pattern: person does something that »

Offense and Industry

So there’s been a bit of a brouhaha over in the Flash/dev community over a presentation that was given at Flashbelt; unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend (so I can’t speak from firsthand experience about what happened), but I wanted to chime in on some of what’s being said – and not being said – »

Memorial Day

I looked at the Caller ID and saw a name I wasn’t expecting; the conversation quickly turned from polite pleasantries to an offer that was too tempting to refuse: riding in the annual Rolling Thunder event for Memorial Day. I’d bumped into my stepfather’s longtime friend at my night job, and when he decided to »

Caring

I’m at Reagan National airport right now, and will be here for the next two hours. I had booked a flight yesterday to head down to Florida to attend a funeral service; the death was unexpected, so the arrangements were made at the last minute. When I booked the flight, I chose a seat out »

Seven Random Things

This morning I was tagged by Steve Howard to blog 7 random things about me, and tag seven other victims as well. Now, I already have a random-facts entry on here, so I had to come up with things that I didn’t already have. So, here they are… 1. I used to manage promotions and »

Staying Sane for the Holidays

The holiday season is often seen as a time when the ‘rules don’t apply,’ where we can eat, drink, and spend in excess. Any declarations of an attempt at moderation are met with ‘oh, but it’s the holidays!’ and someone trying to force a rumball down your throat. And lest you try to be sensible, »

10 things your boss wants…

…you to do that’ll screw you over 1. Put 8 hours down on your timesheet, but work 10. Or 12… This is where the most common guilt trip is placed – after all, you’re ‘not a team player’ if you’re not willing to put in a little extra effort now and then to get things »

Compartments

One trend that I have noticed in my friendships is a division of friends into two distinct categories: one would be ‘topical buddies’ – ones with whom I share a common interest and an ability to converse on it (they are not mutually inclusive), but with whom I usually only have conversations about that narrow »

10 random lisafacts from the past

1. I won the blue ribbon in the science fair in 8th grade. Time spent on project? Less than 15 minutes. Knew nothing about the beforehand (electrical wiring, series and parallel circuitry). Comment from the judges? ‘You know so much about the subject!’ 2. I’ve been homeless several times (for over a month). 3. I »
