Wow being sick while traveling on business is my least favorite thing in the world � well maybe not my least favorite thing. There was that time in the Saudi Arabian dessert where I was stuck in a broken down vehicle, cold and running out of food and I� well that�s a different story.

My latest obsession: The Conet Project Call me late to the party, but I recently discovered this. In short, The Conet Project is the title of a collection of recordings from shortwave radios all around the world. But these are not simply people jabbering with each other. These are recordings of ‘numbers stations’. The first […]

So where has life decided to take me but to the Ukraine. And though by the last leg of our flight from Amsterdam to Kiev I felt like a wadded damp towel in a mildewy New Orleans bathroom, I was still feeling excited when we landed.

For a long time I’ve had a problem with feminism. Frankly I’m pissed that now I have to go out to work, instead of staying home to be a housewife and mother. I didn’t ask for that.

So, my husband and I were carpooling to work today, as we do every day, listening to Air America. The commercials came on and I was only half listening, but there was a woman talking and I’ll paraphrase here what she said:

“Kids don’t just ask questions, they set traps. Like asking, ‘Mommy, why does it get dark?’ The next thing you know I’m trying to explain stars and black holes and grrrrr. Then I think, ‘Thank goodness for movies. Kids don’t ask questions if they’re watching a movie.'”
