Of Safety Pins and Paperclips

I’m conflicted about the whole safety pin thing. It’s an easy gesture and I’m afraid that it will provide comfort only to the people who wear it, not to those actually in need of comfort. I’m afraid that the people who wear it will think their work is done because they put on their safety… Continue reading Of Safety Pins and Paperclips

Never Give In* (Conditions Apply)

“…never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty — never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.

Dealing With Your Kid’s Email: A Nerd’s Approach

Some of the parents in the school’s Facebook group were asking how to set up the school email account on their phones, which feels like overkill to me.

Years of Costumes We Have to Explain to Everybody

Sometimes, especially Halloween, I can’t help but think I’ve somehow ruined my children. Every year since they’ve been old enough to pick their own costumes, they’ve gone as something so obscure and webby that we end up having to explain it at every house we go to. That’s doubly true since we moved to Savannah… Continue reading Years of Costumes We Have to Explain to Everybody

What I Did This Weekend: Bugs and Dolphins

[hang2column element=”div” width=”500″][/hang2column] My co-worker Mireia has been in Savannah working with us for almost three months. She goes home back to Barcelona in a couple weeks, so we decided it was about time to start cramming in touristy stuff! This weekend, I dragged her all over the low country looking for alligators and dolphins.… Continue reading What I Did This Weekend: Bugs and Dolphins
