It's not all about me: The Health Insurance Edition

After much consideration, my employer decided to switch to covering individual health insurance policies for all of us at work instead of the small group plan that we have had until now.  It wasn't a tough decision, we can get better policies on the exchange at the Platinum level for less money than the options available to us with our ....

Compartmentalizing

Once upon a time I used to blog. That should be the definition of this space over the last few years. I never wrote a lot. Or consistently. If I had something I was chewing on, though, this used to be a place I could think it through by typing, deleting, editing and hitting publish. Like magic, the thing I ....

ITIFT*: Willful Blindness

I really enjoyed this Ted Talk by Margaret Heffernan on the concept of willful blindness...that maddening ability humans have to "not know" things we'd rather pretend aren't happening. I found it particularly timely given the national security and privacy issues we are finally starting to talk about of late. I'm confused by the amount of shock there is about how much of ....

San Diego Comic-Con 2013: Sunday recap

By Sunday, we were pretty much feeling like we had been run over by a couple of trucks. Despite the general sense of being smooshed, we weren't ready to pack it in quite yet. The last few years, Sunday has become the day we take the kids to walk the convention center for a bit...maybe participate in an event if we ....

San Diego Comic-Con 2013: Saturday recap

Saturday. In all my years of going to SDCC, there is only one word for summing up Saturday. People. Lots and lots of people. I've learned that the key to a good Saturday is to keep moving, stay flexible and remember that no one is trying to crush you on purpose. We started briefly in the Exhibit Hall while it was ....

San Diego Comic Con 2013: Friday recap

Friday found us starting out on the Exhibit Hall floor again. You could spend the whole show enjoying the costumes and never get bored. I bumped into the awesome Tony Kim - @Crazy4ComicCon, and his even more awesome coat made entirely of 11 Comic-Con bags. It's meant to be an homage to Doctor Who's 11th doctor. Remember this guy, he may pop ....

San Diego Comic-Con 2013: Thursday recap

This was our first year fully embracing the Con and diving in with a 4-day Pass. I'm ruined now. My apologies in advance to anyone I know who may ever get married on SDCC weekend. Can't make it. Since I've had folks ask me what it's like to actually attend, I though I'd break down each of our days to give ....

Kittens, kittens everywhere

Hello world, don't mind me.  I'm just over here hawking kittens. My Aunt found a mom and litter of kittens in her back yard some time ago.  She's been feeding the mother until the kittens were old enough to wean, at which time she brought them inside to keep them from going feral and so she could have them fixed. The time ....
