Blogger (Google) has changed everything & I hate it. People keep "improving" things that aren't broken!! Ahhhhhhh. So now, when I change settings on my blog I have to republish thhe WHOLE blog, not just the index page. Very anoying. I think they've made it harder for people who publish their blog on their own site (like me) as we cna't use their new layout functions etc. But whateve. Now I just have to find a way around it, like writing a post to republish the index (like this one) instead of hitting the "republish" button.

I stumbled accross a blog from someone on a 27month Peace Corps service trip in Togo. The whole adventure is facinating but one entry really touched me. You can read it HERE. The world needs more of this understanding, that we are all essentially the same. We could learn a lot from children who aren't prejudice untill they are taught it.

yuletide greetings

Happy Winter Solstice everyone!!!

I hope the season brings you lots of joy & laughter.

And remember, the rotation of the earth (and it's axis) around the sun are the reason for the season. =)

what a day

What a great day we had! There was a screening of "Blood Diamond" I found out about through the ediitors guild. I didn't get a chance to rsvp but we decided to show up anyway. It was fine, turns out. Not full at all. Great screening room. And an absolutely great film. I highly recomend it. It's really well done and acted and made. It makes you think and it's an action movie. Then there was a Q&A after with the editor and vfx supervisor. Facinating guys & info.

Afterwards we decided to eat. We were in Beverly Hills (where the screening was) but we didn't want a frou frou place. We ended up at the Cheesecake Factory. Yum. I just wish I was hungrier. Then we walked around a few blocks in the very cold (for LA) evening, looking in the BH windows and at the holiday decor.
A great day indeed.


Sometimes I can't believe how stupid and short sighted companies can be. So stupid and lame. Drives me crazy.

work, work...

Another weekend... Another day at the office...


the tree

Today we went to cut down our tree for the holidays. We thought about getting a very tall one, as our celing can take it, but it might have overpowered everything else. So, we came home with this lovely guy. Now... I just need to light him.

phone home

Went by Cingular tonight to get help with my phone service. The guys there were so great. All realy knew what they were talking about. A rarity, I find, these days. Here's the guy that helped me so I could send photos from the phone again.



My sister Melissa went to India on a business trip. She needed an unlocked gsm phone so she could get a SIM card there for pay as you go. I gave her one and my UK phone. She's been texting me on her trip and sent me this picture. Not sure where it is, but it's fun that she can keep in touch so easily from so far away. =)
