2007 in retrospect
Houston, we have landed! I spent a big chunk of New Year’s Day in a pressurized cabin to get to Houston, where I’ll be at the Render Conference starting tomorrow ’til Saturday. One conversation we had on the way to the airport was: what do people do on New Year’s Day anyways? I think these are in the top 3: watch the Rose Parade and football bowl games; take down Christmas decorations; and/or clean up the house. What did you do on the 1st day of the year?
Now, my eyes are bloodshot, I noticed in the mirror during a mid-day pit-stop. That means I need sleep. I thought I had a full 8 hours last night, but my eyes are telling me differently. So I’m keeping this short and going to bed.
My editor’s choice blog posts for 2007::
- handmade 2007 Christmas e-card
- temporarily homeless
- being quoted in the LA Times
- tragic news of Virginia Tech shootings
- what Piper said about Asian Americans
and, here’s a few things I’m doing in 2008::
- building up my Yogurtland info page – this is part of that “fro yo” trend, cf. NYT’s A Second Front in the Frozen Yogurt Wars + USA Today’s Red Mango USA dishes up healthier frozen yogurt [print version had a snazzier article title, Frozen Yogurt evolves in a Starbucks world; also ran on ABC News]
- filling out my Aliso Viejo Town Center directory
- find more videos for my list of Andy Kaufman vldeo clips
- travel here + there for conferences and business
