nuns in the news

Nun demoted after a hospital team carried out an abortion to save a woman’s life

So much for the "pro-life" church.

Thanks to Cinnamon for the link!

2010 book list #12

The Well: A Story of Love, Death & Real Life in the Seminal Online Community The Well: A Story of Love, Death & Real Life in the Seminal Online Community by Katie Hafner


My rating: 3 of 5 stars
As a 13-year veteran of Salon.com's Table Talk forum (based on the Well and now owner of the Well), I enjoyed this quick and interesting read about the first online community, told mostly through its more outsized characters with a smattering of technical jargon.

2010 book list #11

Collected Stories (Vintage Classics) Collected Stories by Willa Cather


My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed these stories so much that I think I'm going to dive into a novel next. Where should I start, Catherphiles? My Antonia?

Everything Cast Iron!

My friend Cinnamon wrote a cookbook about cast-iron thingies and you should buy it from your local bookstore right now.

I have figured out what will make me talk to strangers. This has implications for my career. Exciting!

you're standing on my neck

Jeez, finally!

a little respite

I'm at a conference for a couple of days, and I know I should be networking my ass off for various reasons, but being "on" for strangers makes me blue after a while. I'm the person who likes parties but prefers to hide behind the potted ficus and observe others' good times.

So I skipped a session and went in search of peace and quiet. A cup of tea, an empty classroom, a Willa Cather story, and nothing but the sound of the HVAC humming above me. For an hour, all was right with the world.

I'll network tomorrow, I promise.
