No, It’s Not Really One In The Morning

oopsYes, I’m so totally cheating and back dating today’s post cause, DAMNIT, today just got away from me. The local time is four o’clock in the afternoon on Friday, 01 July, so even though the server says it’s one in the morning on Saturday, 02 July, the server can totally SUCK IT.


This morning I got out of bed at four in the morning, finished packing, got ready, checked out, and was in the taxi headed to the airport by four thirty. Arrived at the airport at five. For a six o’clock flight.

That was delayed an hour.

But there were pancakes.

Gefeliciteerd, K!

photo-1458175049065-aefb15b1b58bI miss a lot of people’s birthdays and anniversaries and special events cause I so totally suck at keeping in touch or remembering these amazing dates that are so precious to you, but just another day because I AM NOT A GOOD FRIEND.


When you call me on it. Or remind me.

I will so totally respond. And follow up. And make sure that Things Happen.


Especially since I haven’t celebrated my fortieth in Groningen yet, I’m counter-calling YOU out, K – we’re meeting for drinks and cake and laughs to celebrate your big TWO SIX!

hugs2OR “Things I’ve Learned In The Past Two Days”

The AI finally drank milk. He just needed a straw.

I’m thinking about writing a collaborative book…

bookshrm… or maybe i should just write a book on my own.

but something that i’m willing to write a whole hell of a lot about. and also speak a whole hell of a lot about. being a woman in tech. just another unicorn. a call to arms. a call to horns. the book i’m writing can just be an ebook, not published in physical form. but another part of me wants to go full on scientific study. something with lots of research and nerdism.

but about what.

about an experiment. an experiment that has to do with me.

how to be a nerd. how to be a unicorn. becoming a unicorn. how to build a unicorn. from scratch. build a unicorn from scratch. a home made unicorn. rainbows and shit.

blah blah blah i’m awesome. just ask me.


three nerds and a book. unicorn programming. the bookstores wouldn’t know how to file it.

feminism and the single unicorn. unicorn brainstorming. the eye of the unicorn.

yin yoga every night and other nightmares. the cat won’t get off my yoga blanket.

problem solving in the age of the unicorn. dragon’s unicorn. the year of the dragon’s unicorn.

the unicorn’s unicorn.

the effect of the unicorn guru on the field of STEM in the age of dragons: the discovery of a field organism in biomedical engineering. SCIENCE

what happens when i fart into a jar every day for a year. EPIC SCIENCE

coming up with an epic and thoughtful conclusion in the age of hourly epic and thoughtful blog / vlog posts and podcasts and information overload and all those other things that just add more words to the title so that you’re not really writing a title anymore, but the entire book summary in one line of stupid text and now you’ve just spent 2.99 for a bunch of blank pages cause SURPRISE this is actually just a lame ass journal
