The Circle of Life also applies to Macs

Two text messages received from two different people on one morning:

11:27 a.m. "my computer lost the will to life. Incidentally, this occurred less than a month after my Apple Care expired."

12:30 p.m. "I got my mac!"

China, Money, Corporate Online Stalking

Find here a shortened version of my Chinamoneyfesto, the basic concept behind it being that people in China talk about money freely, yet we're still squirmish here in the U.S.

I also posted this week (here) about this really insane lawsuit going on in New Jersey involving a health insurance company wanting to use online communications (e-mail, Facebook, blogs, etc.) to determine whether or not to provide health coverage to teenagers with eating disorders.

My China photos for the most part are completely flickred, but still are untagged and poorly organized.

And it's snowing here in New York :-)

Why working out in the winter might be worth it

Because the idea of wearing one of these seems beyond terrifying.

Mary's Natal Chart

Originally uploaded by marymarymarymary
When I was born, some hippie friend of my mom (no offense if you're out there!) did this crazy ass chart on the day I was born that supposedly spells out my entire future. But she forgot the interpretation part, so I've been living under a cloud of mystery for the last couple of decades.

Does anyone know how to read this thing? Am I totally screwed? Help!

Fun Fact (?): The story is that I was born at lunchtime on my due date in a two-hour natural birth with no drugs and no c-section. And my family claims that my mom went back to her office later that same day. DAMN.

It's About Flickin time (sorry, that was shameless)

You know that personal to do list that sits in your mind for YEARS and never really goes anywhere? Well, getting my crap together with Flickr has been on mine for a while and I'm pleased to report that I've made some progress and spent the best $24.95 I've spent in a while. I know, this is all really 2002 of me, but the fear of my fatty external hard drive crashing has really set in lately. We don't know who is going to be the democratic nominee! Our strong economy is packed with subprime garbage! The NY Giants won the Super Bowl! Egads!

Anywho, enjoy this shot of my grandma Hazel (who would go on to wed my grandfather, Almond - no joke) and keep tabs on my stream and hound me if I don't keep up with it. Friend me (marymarymarymary) if you're dying to see the super unflattering middle school shots. Just know that you might be in some of them.
