Re: I Voted!

I've been working about 20-30 hours a week at the San Francisco Clinton campaign office since mid-August. If you're in a swing state, it's very likely the "can we count on your support?" call is coming from our office. For all the attention I've been paying to the presidential race, I'm woefully uni...

Re: "We haven't disappeared; We're just traveling."

In about 26 hours I'll be on a plane to London for an eight-day visit. I've never spent more than a few days in the city, so I'm very much looking forward to exploring, though I fear my friend and I are already overbooked. Tickets to "A Winter's Tale" with Dame Judi Dench and Kenneth Brannagh, "Haml...

Re: No Catz but Kate's OK

My big fear with Abbaloony, as I said, is the vet. To pick her up and put her in a cat carrier would be a violation of all the trust we've managed to establish. I have no idea in the world how we'd ever manage to give her a pill. If we can't put it in her food, she's not taking the pill. She's very...

Re: What are you watching on TV these days?

It's hard to believe it's been 25 years since Ken Burns' "The Civil War" first aired. I vividly remember that first run and being glued to the TV every night - then recording it all on good ole VHS when the local PBS station ran it again a few months later. Over the years, I've probably watched a do...

Re: What are you watching on TV these days?

I binge watched Daredevil not long after it was released on Netflix and it was fabulous. The cast is pitch-perfect with Vincent D'Onofrio stealing the show as the surprisingly sympathetic villain Wilson Fisk. And as a Marvel fan, I love their continuity. Matt Murdock's Daredevil is fighting Fisk ove...

A couple of weeks ago I made my eighth pilgrimage to San Diego to bask in All Things Geek with 130,000 fellow nerds at Comic-Con. Last year's highlight was seeing a NASA panel featuring Bobak Ferdowski (aka Mohawk Guy from JPL) and Buzz Aldrin talking about the future of space exploration. This year...
