- Seen on Screen: Brooks Bros. cuts custom camo suit for Colbert's Iraq visit | Los Angeles Times ow.ly/e8pa
I thought that was a sharp-looking suit, and it seems I was right!
- How did it get to be lunchtime? Oh yeah, I just went to "do one little thing more" with the web pages. Oy.
- Will I be turning over the web pages to the web producer soon? I sure hope so!
- The Power of Twitter's "Suggested User" List - NYTimes.com ow.ly/ebTv AKA The Tweet Smell of Success
Huh, I didn't know about any "Suggested User" list. But yeah, I WAS an early adopter. We had to go out and find our own followers then, chipping them out of stone our own selves. ::waves cane, stamps foot::
- Web producer seems happy with my work, needs only tiny changes. We'll see what happens when she actually starts using it -- the acid test!
It's easy enough to look good, but I think my inexperience with setting up a production web page may show with usability/maintainability issues.

- Personal Health - An Emotional Hair Trigger, Often Misread - NYTimes.com ow.ly/ehha -- good article about borderline personality
I'm seriously contemplating printing this out and leaving it anonymously in the mailbox of some neighbors of mine, whose 9yo is daily going into crying fits and meltdowns. In the warm weather I can't avoid overhearing a lot, being that they're out in their yard. So much of the behavior described in the article fits. Something is definitely wrong with the kid, and I know she's getting at least some school counseling....
