I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

Earlier this month, or more like late in December, there was a kerfuffle over LJ’s data servers being moved from the U.S. to Russia, where the parent company is located. There are many business reasons why consolidating operations may be … Continue reading
I had a good time today spending money. I had my annual trip to the office supply store, getting new pens and a notepad and, finally, an accordion file for my receipts, which I couldn’t find last year. I get … Continue reading
