Hilton

When checking in for shmoo we got a porter to help us bring up our bags, we had many

we chose the valet the car as i would be leaving 4am and wanted to be able to call down have the car ready and a bellhop

i didn't use in out rights

check out time came, 4:20 i called down
no answer from bellhop
no answer from front desk
no answer from valet
put bags together, brush teeth
try calling again
again no answers
go downstairs with many heavy bags and had to abandon multiple bottles (which sucks, 1$ a pop to a homebrewer) a few gallons of water and some boxes which was upsetting but i couldnt carry that much

went to fron desk, they also tried to summon valet by pager/comms
no response

it took 30 min to get my car

i was in a rush ad this left me flustered and running behind schedule

sorely dissapointed - no one apologized or really seemed to care

Death is coming for you, yes you

We are all going to die someday, and you should be ready for that.

It is an uncomfortable topic to discuss with your parents, your significant others, your children - but don't you want to make sure you know their wishes? You never know when you, or they, will end up in an emergency. Wouldn't you like to know if they are do not intubate? do not resuscitate?

Put together a will, a living will, your wishes - and share them.
Ask your significant other, parents, etc the same.

A good thing to read - http://www.orderofthegooddeath.com/

I know my mother wants to be cremated, she wants Frank Sinatra's my way played at the funeral. there is required to be good food and drink. She is an organ donor, she has a will.

I have told everyone I am an organ donor, I have a living will (DNR), I want my body donated to science then cremated. (Science needs bodies! please consider donating). I have a will.

In addition, hopefully preparing to die will remind you that you are still alive.
What friends and family have you not seen recently? Why not?
What things have you always wanted to do - why aren't you working toward traveling there or learning that skill?
Have you told the people that have impacted you positively that they did?

Start NOW, start working toward the trip you want to take, the skill you want to learn, the career you want, whatever it is, start making it happen step by step.

Plan a trip, a lunch, whatever to see the friends and family who matter to you. I try to visit my friends every 2-3 years.

There is not always tomorrow.

Goodbye hostrocket.com

we met on 4/20/09

i can't recall how i found you but you have been a very good hosting service for me.

2 domains, dedicated IP address for about 200$ every 2 years

Your support was always helpful and kind

Sorry I have to leave you, I tried hosting some PHP stuff I commissioned to be written - but there were bugs and I had no time to fix it, so you became through my neglect an expensive cloud storage container.

I will miss you, and continue to recommend you. perhaps I shall need you again in the future.

Things I did in 2015
I, poorly, maintained the following:
amazonv: (Default)
I am planning to reflect over the year utilizing google calendar - but it made me think back on my job too

I was interested in computers, and was lucky enough to have a neighbor who was too and parents who bought me parts

I learned to build and work with a DOS box and was happy

Windows 3.11 was the shit when it came out

I had a grandmother who was a secretary and taught me word processing, and who had a printer (the kind you had to tear off the perforated sides)

In there I coerced mom to give me my own phone line, I was a girl and all!

I secured an ISP - my second or third I have kept to this day (http://www.bee.net) and learned from friends, books, classes (AOL in there with all the free diskettes!) I was fortunate my grade school and summer schools taught fetch, typing, etc.

I couldn't talk to the other neighborhood geek girl with prodigy, which was sad. Luckily there were BBSes.

Many times I called Bee dot net support - and one time Rich taught me to FTP and I learned HTML by picking apart others pages. We got a free web page with the ISP monthly fee. I had a (horrible) Xena fan site - and hung out on IRC and the official web chat boards for Xena. That's where my handle came from.

What if Rich at bee dot net hadn't been kind to a small girl who was confused? Would I work at Rackspace now?

So that's why I think I am so passionate about youth STEM education. One person influenced my life, a ISP support person on night shift.

After that I learned all I could, I went to Clarkson University as part of the schoolie program (skipped some high school) to become a BS-Comp Sci

I ended up BS-MIS instead due to Calc3 (don't even start) and one programming professor. Then I got a Masters of Science in Information Systems.

I worked as a QA/BA/PM at one company and progressed up to Sys Admin and Sr Sys Admin who did deploys and builds

All that progress was deciding it needed to be done, and I would figure it out, and I did.

I learned how to use TFS, VSS, asp.net, javascript, asp, admin multiple versions of windows and more.

I have deviated from my roots - I have developers now, amazing ones I really appreciate, and I am on the business side. But still in tech.

So that's a bit more than 2015 spoilers, but, I have emailed Rich before and thanked him. Have you thanked who showed you your life's work?

Hol Food

Got in a trade

Smell
Baker's chocolate

Taste
Dark Chocolate

Texture
Thick, lumpy like tapioca not like unblended or gritty

Insane thick after refrigeration, and sticks to cup, but not slimy

Fullness
full for hours

Added
Water

Notes
I recommend mixing and drinking fresh. I am not sure how long I could have chocolate, even though not sweet but dark chocolate, non stop. But a great breakfast replacement.

Moasic Nutrition
Body Fuel Original Blend Unflavored

Order: June 12
Arrived: June 26

Taste
Salty, Sour oatmeal

Texture
warm: chunky, watery
cold: thick and slimy with chunks

Fullness
pretty full for hours

Notes
Interesting it lets you customize based on Gender, Age, Height, Desire to gain or lose, low carb or gluten free, and flavor.

Directions 8-12 ounces per scoop and 15 scoops a bag. I dislike the generic ness of it. I made with 14 cups of water.

Added more water after, still slimy.

I know this is my exgirlfriends favorite brand but I really don't see myself ever buying this brand again.
