This Blog Has Moved

This blog has been imported from to WordPress, and so there may be a few glitches here and there. Apologies for any confusion!

Additional Blog

So, I’ve set myself up a new blog: Commonplace Book. I created this for two (unordered reasons):

  • I’d like to keep the focus of Život v Cizine here on life abroad, and so I needed somewhere else to put my more miscellaneous postings.
  • I was worried that my webgeekstress credentials were being eroded by my time spent teaching English. So, setting up a WordPress blog, which is really so much geekier than (which powers this blog), seemed like a good move. I like WordPress quite a bit: it’s much more powerful and flexible than blogger, and I may end up moving this blog over as well.

The new blog is lightly populated with some of the miscellaneous postings that had appeared here. It remains to be seen if I’ll be more dedicated to keeping that one up to date.

Brand-new Twitterer

Well, I’ve set up an account on Twitter: I’ve resisted this for a while: after all, I already have my blog! But, hey, all the other cool kids are twittering, and I was feeling left out.

Unfortunately, the name puts me in mind of a former and massively unlamented manager. My description of her ignorance, lack of humor, and propensity for parroting the latest management idea du jour prompted my mother to dub her "Twitty". The name was so thoroughly apropos that not only did I adopt it, but several of my co-workers did as well.

I suppose I should feel guilty… it does seem rather childish now. I don’t, though; in fact, I had a subsequent manager whom I think of as "Twitty Two".

How do you solve a problem like Maria?

Apropos of absolutely nothing at all, I ran across this on McSweeneys Internet Tendency, and I thought it was too good not to share.
