My Relationship With Google

April 11, 2013 by


So this year I decided to transition to using Google calendar. I have a grown-up phone now and I really wanted to be able to check my calendar when I wasn’t on my couch. (Yes, it happens. Shut up.) I’ve had a Google calendar for while but up until this point it’s only had the […]

Help Me Save the Infant Laptop

November 5, 2012 by


This morning I was going to write something clever, or maybe even funny, or at the very least less incoherent and probably less about ducks. I was going to raise the bar. As the bar is on the floor after the last couple of weeks of fever posts I thought this would not be hard. […]

Apple Nerds Rejoice for Waldo Has Been Found and the Deep Fried Mars Bar is No More

May 16, 2012 by


I spent yesterday flummoxing Apple geeks*. Which is a bit of fun. I recommend it if you’ve got an afternoon free and a way for taking your computers off the deep end. I told them what was going on and they were following along right up until I said, And then it said the hard […]

The Death and Rebirth of my Life/Work/Writing/Soul/Addiction

March 20, 2012 by


Okay, today, today I love Apple. I think they are brilliant and wondrous and shiny. Which is a big step up from yesterday where I wanted to hit them with something heavy. There’s a lesson here — the highs are never quite as atmospheric until you’ve crawled through the gutter. Or something. Cause see yesterday, […]

I Might Have Accidentally Sold My Soul, But That Doesn’t Mean There’s No Room to Negotiate

January 9, 2012 by


It is like the ninth day of the year and I am already behind. This is ridiculous. (Certain people have said that in fact I am ridiculous and that ‘behind’ is a word I have created to define my own ludicrous theories about where I should be. It’s not that I disagree per se. I […]
