listen up

Slow day at the office, so I'm catching up on some administrative details. And by that I mean I'm listening to Lost podcasts on Atlas while reading scintillating essays about health care.

Latest discovery: Video podcasts look a lot more videoy when I view them through the video podcast menu, not the regular (sound-only) podcast menu. D'OH!

Last night's Lost was had a little Easter egg in it for me: a character's driver's license was flashed on screen for a moment, and he's from a Twin Cities snoburb not far from mine. If you want to sound in-the-know, the city of Wayzata calls itself "Y-zetta," not "Way-zotta." There. Now you sound like a Minnesotan. Ya.

Because I am fashion-impaired, I have finally broken down and called Nordstrom's personal shopping service. I'll probably meet with a shopping assistant tomorrow after work and try to buy a work outfit or two for summer. Or maybe just one; Nordstrom ain't cheap.

But seriously. I need the help. I can't seem to find clothes anywhere between Junior Sluts and Janet Reno. Where do medium-sized, 30-something women shop for adult-but-not-dowdy clothes? This is not a rhetorical question.

Anybody out there use Skype? I'm thinking of trying this out, and trying to get my Mom to try it out, so we can talk long-distance for free. Worth it or not? All opinions welcome.

OK, time to concentrate. And by that I mean switch the iPod to NPR's Story of the Day series. Thank you, God, for technology.



  • We love Skype. I talk to my brother in Italy and parents in SD for free all the time.

    Use my gmail address to search for my contact ID.

    Have fun!

  • OMG, I forgot to tell you about my fashion discovery (as you & I have had this conversation about where normal people buy normal clothes many many times...) -- Coldwater Creek. Some of their stuff is a bit over the top, but they have a lot of neat jackets that have flair but don't look like they were made for teenyboppers. And their elegant, go-with-everything pants SIT AT YOUR WAIST!!!
