Why are hanging folders so expensive? Criminey.
Customer service is tricky when the connection is so dang slow. wondering when that DSL will be available.
Getting Lucy ready for her big day at camp. She’s being sweet and clingy; we’re hoping the transfer goes well.
Sarah’s packing Lucy’s lunch for her First Day of Camp tomorrow. It’s sweet and sad and exciting and scary.
I so quickly adapted to the “rightness” of the Awesome Bar in FF3, I’m thrown off when I’m on a computer without it.
Sarah’s setting up a Daily Docket, courtesy @simplemom: http://simplemom.net/daily-docket/. I’m working on data visualization nerd stuff.
“Lucy, you’re being a contrarian.” “No I’m not!” Fabulous.
Geeking out over data visualization ideas for PB. Hesitant to say too much, since I’m not sure what is actually do-able. We’ll see!
Take your shower; shine your shoes. You are young men, you must be living. Go now, you’re forgiven.
Yay for pancakes!
Attaching *someone else’s* budget spreadsheet to an e-mail to a customer. Okay with it.
Cleaning up the house; hanging out with friends.
You know those e-mails that make all the hard work worth it? Yeah. Just got one of those. Blew me away. Chills, even.
Trying to figure out how to print on 3x5 cards.
Updating some PB content, then working on Mt layout. Sweet colors for the new palette.
Love love love First Market Bank’s online billpay. Don’t like how I have to re-“register this computer” every single time I log on there.

I think the British pharmacy chain “Boots the Chemist” would make an excellent hip-hop MC name. Duane Read is only so-so in that regard.
Lucy is being a ninja, and needs a name. She rejected “StormShadow” as being “a boy’s name” (she’s right). Anybody have any suggestions?
I think it worked. Rockstar.
Crossing fingers …
Yay for Rachel! SimpleMom is the best!!!
Man! Extended Validation Certificates (the green glowy bit on the awesome bar in FF) cost $500/yr!? Pass.
Okay. Finally getting to that code that @mogrify so kindly sent over earlier. Then maybe those deploys will actually happen.
Thought I could get by without the Stylish FF add-on. Not so. Adding it back to the stack.
Putting that code deployment on hold while I get a homemade biscuit and jam. Would hate for everything to blow up while I’m eating breakfast
Playing with http://kuler.adobe.com. Fun tool.
Would love to get a ska/punk aerobics thing going. Pandora’s rocking the Selecter at the moment. Haven’t heard them in FOREVER. I miss Trav.
Trying to set some far future expires headers on the PearBudget server.
It’s interesting how almost every setup in LifeHacker’s desk pool (http://is.gd/EAB) is against a wall. I guess people just default to that?
Just set up a New Relic web app monitoring thing, and wondering if I did it right. I’m sure you’re wondering, too. Will keep you posted.
Ooh. It works. But it’s kicking out all kinds of shiny graphs, and I’m not totally sure how to read them.
Fixing the sink.
Lucy’s obsessed with ninjas. Except she usually calls them “injas.”
Has anybody played with Processing?
Drinking limeades with Papa, Sarah, and Melissa + Barry. The rain’s intense. Wish we had a screened porch. Nevertheless: awesome.
Gearing up for pancakes.
PearBudget mentioned, in a "doing it right"... →
Robet Hoekman Jr. wrote the brilliant book Designing the Obvious, and the newer Designing the Moment. We’re stoked that he mentioned PearBudget in his article on designing sign-up forms.
Cleaning up the house in preparation for a visit from my uncle, aunt, and grandmother.
Sending directions to a friend, to get out to Peace Hill tomorrow.
Time to stop neglecting the family at lunch.
Heck YES, Rusted Root! Thank you, Pandora!
