Dear Alamo @Drafthouse, Thank you. Thank you for creating a place where adults can routinely enjoy a movie among the company of other well-behaved adults.

Drop a Love Bomb For Kate

October 20th, 2011 · No Comments · community, Lori

Dear Kate, We’ve never met, but I am willing to be your friend. I hurt for your pain and want to help make things better for you. My own words fail me, so I’ll draw from better scribes: “In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.” – […]

They’re Ruining WiFi

July 27th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Austin, community, Lori

I get a LOT more done during the day if I go somewhere than I do if I stay home. So, I’m pretty familiar with all the WiFi spots near me. I know which ones have a good/strong signal, which ones nag for multiple logins, which places have good food, and even which of my […]

Cash is King; Disaster-relief Donations

May 25th, 2011 · No Comments · community, Lori

{[I was going to post this on facebook in response to one of my college friends (and a ZTA sister) asking for donations of cash, instead of clothing/food for disaster relief. She's right. ...but that doesn't diminish my concerns or alter my ability to donate. So, rather than endure the wrath of facebook, I'm posting […]

The Cable Guy

May 22nd, 2011 · No Comments · community, Lori

Last week, our Internet speed was inconsistent, and we ended up with a tech call to have the problems investigated. While the tech worked on lines and such, we chatted. He’s lived in New York and hasn’t been in Austin all that long. At one point, he was telling me about living in “this little […]

I’ll Take My Barbies and Go Home

December 15th, 2010 · No Comments · community, Lori

None of this happened to me, but it happened to a friend of mine and I’m angry for her (especially since I’ve been there). She was asked to donate desserts for an industry event. It was not made clear that she would be one of at least two who donated. So, she staged and planned […]

Give AND Take part deux

December 6th, 2010 · No Comments · community, Lori, z. blacklist

Another rant so soon? Yes, it seems these things come in waves. Furthermore, there have been several things going on. In all kinds of ways, I give a LOT to my community. I give time/skill/talent to charity and other community efforts. I pick up random trash I see. I take a shopping cart from the […]

Going Green

November 15th, 2010 · No Comments · community, Lori

We’ve become a lot more eco-friendly since moving to Austin. Our apartment complex recycling–and Austin’s in general–is a lot easier to use. So, we are dong that a lot more. It’s a huge visual impact we can make. Oh, and since we live in an apartment, we use a lot less water and electricity. Right […]
