globat down

February 22nd, 2008 No Comments

My web hosting company, globat, was down almost the entire day yesterday, and it looks like it’s intermitant today. I’m up for renewal in April and was already considering switching to another host (someone who doesn’t charge my credit card automatically if I don’t opt-out of their e-mail upgrades) but it’s sort of scary! I […]

Yesterday I decided that I would finally get around to doing something with this blog…it is still the default theme. I have no widgets or interesting things. I have no links to my friends pages or the amazing craft blogs that I follow. So I thought that I would be sneaky and install and create […]


Mitt Romney for President, 2008

I’m not really into politics. I appreciate that people run the country and create, enforce, uphold, argue about, and record the law (as it currently stands), but I have never really involved myself farther than informing myself about the issues/canidates, and getting out to vote (plus I REALLY like wearing the “I voted” sticker all […]


the day the images died

I’m in mourning. I’m protesting. I’m crying in my spare time. My Canon 30D was stolen from my desk on Friday. I am still in shock. That camera represents more than a $1500 investment. It was also my artmaking tool, the way that I recorded and celebrated my life, my communication device with others, and […]

I finished reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince last week. For the two of you in the whole world who don’t know, that’s the 6th book of the 7 book series by J.K Rowling. I started reading the series in January when I was substitute teaching. I resisted reading them for so long simply […]


I sorta kinda half heart Snape

I had a hard time falling asleep last night. I’ve been reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and after I had finished a few chapters I perused the last 100 pages, reading a phrase here, a paragraph there. I often do this to enjoy a little more suspense without committing myself to another chapter. […]

I can’t keep my eyes off the TV when this commercial, featured on the GAP website, comes on. I adore it. Not only is it adorable Audrey Hepburn dancing in one my of all-time favorite movies, Funny Face, it’s also the beatnik part of the movie, which the people at GAP have juxtaposed with some […]


I wish this was my San Diego

Thank goodness for this Mac laptop generously lent to me by the wonderful people at Torrey Pines High School. Searching the internet for mpeg to vob conversion tools tonight, with the help of it’s wifi, should make my life a slight bit easier (I’ll see when I return to my room and test the files […]
