99% of the time I do everything on my own & the 1% of the time that I really need to lean on someone I feel like a burden. That really sucks
I’m also going to sleep more, read more, just generally take in more and put out less. Give less of myself away in an attempt to renew
Tomorrow is Yom Kippur. I will be fasting and making amends with myself. Ultimately that is going to mean making some drastic life changes
That will likely include being much pickier about my projects, charging more, stretching less, learning to say no and feel okay with that
It’s a total movie day

Me: I think my whole life is going to be about gathering people who don’t like me. @Orian: I suggest you don’t gather them, you scatter them
Thanks so much to everyone who showed up to Whit Hour tonight. Given that I wasn’t drinking a beer, I hope I wasn’t too serious for you all!
I’ve had 3 great face-to-face meetings today, but the emails that have come across my inbox are making me shake. I’m gonna go on the warpath
My head is filled with possibilities from @stoweboyd.
Anyone ever had an event organizer reformat, restyle & rewrite the presentation slides you submitted? How do you handle this?
Do you conduct user research w/ teenagers? I want to interview you for a book chapter I’m writing. Pls @ me or email firstname.lastname@example.org
In this year’s period of repentance I have come to realize that the person I have most wronged is myself, and I’m not going to do it anymore
Writing a blog post that I’m very nervous to publish. Probably gonna take a shot and do it later today

I don’t take naps on my couch nearly often enough
This week has been filled with inspiration for me. Now I just have to turn it into action

The sepia tones used in the Project Runway videography make LA look a lot nicer than it actually is. Sorry, Los Angelenos
I have become a Law & Order junkie. SVU, Criminal Intent, whatever is on, I love it
My favorite collection of antique rings: http://www.morninggloryjewelry.com/mgc2/collectRings.html
I think I’d be a great detective. Maybe I should switch careers
Just had lunch with two of my favorite furry-faced men: @zeldman and @mediajunkie. Match made in hippie geek heaven
Apparently Zara is a haven for Frum women. Lots of black and white and cardigans and jackets.
I wish that my big donations to charities would guarantee me less of their junk mail, not more. Are you listening Bowery Mission & LLS?!
Wowie! @dopplr was just acquired by Nokia. Congrats @dopplrHQ @mattb Matt Jones and the rest of the Dopplr crew. Nice work!
A win for lazy NYers who don’t cook! @seamlessweb is now partnering with NYMag and Menupages for easy ordering (hopefully in context). Cool!

Was just the recipient of @brownorama’s wisdom and am mighty lucky to have had it. Thanks, Dan! :)

Whit Hour – Week 6 →
Thank you so much to the 41 people who showed up for the sixth week of Whit Hour — my weekly one-hour video chat to answer any and all of your questions about user experience,…
Oy vey. My boyfriend is being inappropriate again. And I know it’s my negative influence so I can’t say a damn word about it.
Anyone know how I can resurrect the chat log from my @ustream show?
Someone wanna watch this week’s Whit Hour and type out all the questions asked? Ustream’s chat log didn’t save. http://bit.ly/ms1LT
