work is cool where I work!

Today we went live with the new staff section at work.

You gotta love a place where peeps can be arty and goofy and fun! I got to do the redesign, for the most part. I loved playing with everyone's pics. It was also a perfect way to get to know all of my new coworkers. I'm feeling like I've got it pretty good where I am! Not only is my job serving me up lots of creativity & geekery opportunities, but it is really hitting me how good it feels to work for good, not evil, or even shmevil. MMT just gave out over $2 million bucks!

Stop Palin before she stops you!

(god I wish this photo was real...)

A Repost from an email I received today:

Friends and compatriots,

We are writing to you because of the fury and dread we have felt since the announcement of Sarah Palin as the Vice-Presidential candidate for the Republican Party. We believe that this terrible decision has surpassed mere partisanship, and that it is a dangerous farce-on the part of a pandering and rudderless Presidential candidate-that has a real possibility of becoming fact.


Perhaps like us, as American women, you share the fear of what Ms. Palin and her professed beliefs and proven record could lead to for ourselves and for our present or future daughters. To date, she is against sex education, the pro-choice platform, environmental protection, alternative energy development, freedom of speech (as mayor she wanted to ban books and attempted to fire the librarian who stood against her), gun control, the separation of church and state, and polar bears. To say nothing of her complete lack of real preparation to become the second-most-powerful person on the planet.


We want to clarify that we are not against Sarah Palin as a woman, a mother, or, for that matter, a parent of a pregnant teenager, but solely as a rash, incompetent, and all together devastating choice for Vice President. Ms. Palin's political views are in every way a slap in the face to the accomplishments that our mothers and grandmothers so fiercely fought for, and that we've so demonstrably benefited from.


First and foremost, Ms. Palin does not represent us. She does not demonstrate or uphold our interests as American women. It is presumed that the inclusion of a woman on the Republican ticket could win over women voters. We want to disagree, publicly.

Therefore, we invite you to reply here with a short, succinct message about why you, as a woman living in this country, do not support this candidate as second-in-command for our nation.


Please include your name (last initial is fine), age, and place of residence.


We will post your responses on a blog called "Women Against Sarah Palin," which we intend to publicize as widely as possible. Please send us your reply at your earliest convenience-the greater the volume of responses we receive, the stronger our message will be.


Thank you for your time and action.

VIVA!

Sincerely,

Quinn L. and Lyra K.
