PowerPoint 2007 for UX Design

I have never used Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 for UX design before.  It's actually quite an improvement over the 2003 version.  The ability to manage styles so easily really has made using it a pleasure for my task, which is UX Design.  I have literally designed a major portion of the Marketo app in record time using…Continue readingPowerPoint 2007 for UX Design

No Prediction

I just looked back over the last few months of blogging.  No prediction of the Jets winning the Superbowl this year.  This was the closest I got.  Staggering.  Look at last years prediction.  And the year before!   And another (last sentence, but mostly a funny story)! Seriously, look at that.  God NEVER told me the…Continue readingNo Prediction

Winter Solstice

Today is the shortest day of the year, Winter Solstice.  It is the day when, for thousands of years, mankind has celebrated the end of darkness and the beginning of a new year.  It is the day when we say, "From here on, we will get more sunshine".  Our house is prepared.  Big tree that…Continue readingWinter Solstice

Pink Eye part 2

The other eye went pink.  I feel like Helen Gahagan Douglas.  It's painful and itchy and blurry.  So I am trying to be useful and am wrapping a few presents.  Katie yelled at me when I tried to sort some laundry.  Bad Glen, Bad! Watch this video.  I know what I should give to Katie for Solstice.Continue readingPink Eye part 2

Jets Playoff Hopes – by Dan Lipka

This is an spell checked prognosis from Dan Lipka. (It needed alot of corrections!) Ok, assuming that the Jets win out (they play Miami and Oakland), there this is what the situation is: There are four team with the same 8-6 record (Jets, Cincy, Jacksonville and Denver). The Jets don't have a tie-breaker against any…Continue readingJets Playoff Hopes – by Dan Lipka

24 and Penny

Katie and I watched the last DVD from Netflix of the TV Series "24 Season 1".  6 DVDs with 4 hours each.  It was a 24 marathon.  I really hate this show.  It makes no sense.  It’s Los Angeles and they can drive to work in 8 minutes???  I don’t think so.  The whole thing made…Continue reading24 and Penny

Change of pace

I had gotten so used to being reactive at Intuit.  The phone would ring, the email would arrive, the meetings would be scheduled.  I only had time to "work" in between these hectic moments.  So much so, that I had to avoid some meetings (Like the dreaded PELT) to actually get some work done.  Now,…Continue readingChange of pace

Bread / First Day

Yesterday, I went to get some bread.  I said, "A two and a half pound sourdough, sliced please."  Matthew was in my arms and pointed out his index finger high in the air and yelled, "SCUSE ME ONE MINUTE! SCUSE ME ON MINUTE!"The lady smiled at him and said, "Yes?  Matt perked up and said,…Continue readingBread / First Day
