How to get me to unfriend you on Facebook

In no particular order or strength.

1. Declare that children/babies should not be vaccinated.
2. Post demeaning/degrading photos/videos/articles, against anybody: male, female, fat, skinny, cats, whatevs.
3. Say you heart the NRA.
4. Or Tony Abbott for that matter.
5. Declare loud and clear that GoT is the best book ever. Or Fifty shades of equalRGB

And ...

One of the reasons I've been going slightly mad in the last months is because I've been working on a MOOC on top of everything else!

Behold the video!

Behold the course! Free of charge, really cool! Very friendly! Very easy to learn!

Allergy free!

Turns out, I'm not allergic to absolutely anything! I can hug and kiss dogs and cats to my heart's content because they are not the cause of my allergy-like symptoms. Sigh. I'm jot allergic to chilli either (whew!): the doctor's office had to go out and buy chili to test me. I feel special!

A bit overqualified

Went to school for 24 years. Got a PhD in computer science. Brought in 1.5 mil in funding in 3 years. Am an associate dean.

But today ladies and gentlemen, I was able to help somebody realise that they had plugged in the network cable instead of the projector cable and that THIS WAS WHY THE PROJECTOR WAS NOT WORKING.

Nerds r us

After my accident I eventually made my way to anchorage ( Alaska) to the REI shop, to try and recover some of the gear I lost: turns out, if you have a head and neck injury, then the ambulance people will cut your clothes rather than move you to undress you. Anyway, I couldn't find much of what I needed (2 icebreaker blouses, one icebreaker t-shirt, one soft shell, one down jacket). On my way out I decided to go to a supermarket. It wa on the way to the supermarket that I found it: Title Wave bookstore, were no book was more expensive than 8 bucks and they had everything I needed from mountaineering to scifi to classical fiction to kids books:

So. If anybody ever finds themselves in anchorage, please go there!

Oh. And they had free wifi!

Probably the only New Years resolution that I will ever make and get to keep is getting back to posting on this blog. I have missed the act of writing so much these past six months but then again I've missed my words too. Language is starting to come back to me though so perhaps I can start writing again! Whee!
