Please excuse the mess. I'm in the process of moving to a new server and new blogging software. It'll be a while before this place gets to be looking like normal again.

travelvacation

We're back! I'm still trying to get off of Alaska time and get my thoughts and photos in order. I'll be slowly going through my pictures and getting them uploaded over the next week or so (I took way too many pictures). I'll let you know when they're all up. In the meantime, I've started a timeline on CircaVie and have added some of the video snipets I took with my camera. I'll continue to add pictures and links to slide shows as they become available as another way to document our vacation.

I got tagged by Kerry in blog tag. What is it? I have to tell you 8 things that you don't know about me - and then I tag 8 different bloggers and they do the same!!

8 Random things you may not know about me
  1. My first computer was a hand me down TRS-80 when I was like 8 or 9.
  2. I broke my ankle playing softball and my finger playing soccer growing up -- both required screws to put me back together.
  3. My first "design gig" was doing band programs in 6th grade. (Thanks dad.)
  4. I got through an engineering program using macs before macs were cool. (68040 processors anyone?)
  5. My dogs have been in training for over five years and don't know how to shake or rollover (they do however know right and left).
  6. I have worked with my husband (who recently told me he isn't mentioned here enough) at four different companies.
  7. My first cell phone plan was $14.99/month for 15 minutes. I still talk on the phone like it costs me $1/minute. I'm trying to get over that.
  8. I have many irrational fears including public speaking, falling downstairs, and fish.

Now I'm tagging my dad, my mom (yup, you need to update your blog), Kate, Megan, Laura, Tony, Bill, and Jeff. Your turn.

Summer is over. It's back to snarrled traffic tomorrow. But yay for a short week. We had a nice relaxing Labor Day weekend. This weekend and last have been pretty low key, which has been nice after the craziness of most of August. I got a chance to hang out and go shopping with my friend Sara on Saturday, and today I had coffee with my friend Kelly. Today finished with dinner with my parents at Casa G's and laundry.

There is a new technology network in DC launched by Justin Thorp. If you're in the DC area and interested in web and technology, I highly suggest checking out the DC Technology Network. The fine folks that brought us the super-fantastic BarCamp DC are involved, so I'm sure we'll see great stuff out of this group in the near future.

I've been playing with Tangerine! for creating new play lists for my iPod/iTunes library. Tangerine! Analyzies the beats per minute and intensity of the beat of music in your iTunes library and then based on a set of criteria you define, it'll create playlists for you. I've been enjoying the playlists that it created — something I never get around to doing myself.
