Pizza en route [shhhh!]

To thank Boyfriend’s parents for hosting us over the holidays, we sent something that each of them mentioned loving multiple times while we were there, a Giordano’s pizza.  Of course, that may have just been to make us Chicagoans feel better about our corrupt Governors, our frustrating residents who “save” parking spots via old furniture, Read more…

How I beat my jiggly fat and wound up on a blind date

As I was riding Daisy, my new love, to the Belmont El stop on Saturday, to meet a girl I had “met” just days previous and only “spoken to” via Facebook and email, with a plan of spending the rest of the day with her traversing the streets of Chicago, I retraced the long route Read more…

Grape-Stuff this, suckers!

Things of which I’m moronically proud: I always wake up before the alarm clock The number of compliments I get on my iTunes playlist at parties/Minglers When I’m able to refrain from touching my temperamental hair all day and I have non-frizzy, in-tact ringlets as the sun sets I don’t have cable I own no Read more…

My naked presentation… Success! Failure! I don’t know!

I wrote in my last post that I think the worst position one could find oneself these days is as a bad presenter at a tech-conference.  Not only is every form of capturing-device capturing your every move – video, photo, audio, keyboard, I think I saw a sketch artist in the back corner – but Read more…

Summer camp for geeks… and I think I may be one!

Pics by Paul Saini In continuation of the Solo Life, I attended a two-day conference this past weekend, party of one.  But like has happened with the last few Solo Life attempts, being alone amongst strangers was thwarted.  A Dance Experiment participant and a Mingler guest were present.  But as we were all there to Read more…

You can’t see what my plans are for the weekend, take that!

I realized recently that my Facebook feed hadn’t had any updates from a few people who seem to update their status’ regularly.  Curious as to why, I did a little poking around and discovered, gasp!, that I was no longer friends with them.  I hadn’t defriended them which meant they had, gasp!, defriended me. Out Read more…

I McMuffin you

I have to edit a project for two lovely real-estate agents who hired me to make a video for their website to attract potential clients.  These are the reasons, the burning questions clogging my head, progress on said-video has been slow today. What’s etiquette for Reply All’s? I personally loathe the gazillion back and forths, Read more…

Stop friending me

My usual reaction to a Facebook (FB) friend request from someone I don’t know is to roll my eyes and click “ignore.”  I’m curious as to the number of stranger-friend requests Facebook users receive on average.  I get a handful a week, which considering the scope of FB, doesn’t seem like much, but it’s still Read more…

Geriatric social-networking

Just did that space face page but have no idea how to log on again or reply when someone jumps on the wall.  And for some reason [NAME] keeps trying to be my friend and i think i say ok, but there he is again!! Ten points if you can decipher what an ex-coworker of Read more…

Media coverage for my baby

Fun to track what others say about the Minglers, with the various types of media outlets out there. Facebook Status Updates – Spending the evening with a room full of strangers, on purpose.  Yikes. Mac ‘n Cheese mingling tonight! Watch my cousin on TV tonight!  ABC 10:30PM. Good times at Mac ‘n Cheese. Texts – Read more…
