As of tomorrow, Google abandons even the slightest presence of preserving any individual privacy. Just let it all hang out, that's the new motto.
Ok, it's pretty easy to disable web history and download a few programs that will cut down on the tracking, but not much you can do about google docs or your email.
It's creepy. Google has my nickname--I didn't put it in, and I can't remove it.
I think I'm going to look for a new email provider. It is really a bummer. That, and I'll keep screwing with their algorithms. Who searches for barbies, NCAA, and obscure French poetry? Mwahahaha. Put together an ad for THAT person!
TFL and I just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.
It sort of takes one aback. But it doesn't particularly feel long, it just feels right (except that I'm far too young to have been married that long).
In a couple weeks TFL hits the big 50. So it's quite the year for him, and he's now been married half his life.
The main present he's getting is a visit from both kids. It worked out perfectly and they'll both be here for the big day. I'm coercing TFL into taking his birthday off--and I will too--so we can spend the day doing fun stuff with the kids. We'll go somewhere nice for dinner too.
But otherwise... I'm a bit stumped for presents. A puppy? A gold watch? A kick-butt stereo system? Oh! an electronic drum kit maybe! I'll have to think on this carefully.
I've run away to play hooky for a weekend. I'm with a few other girls in a house on the beach.
Is anything more soothing than the ocean?
We saw dolphins swimming really close to the shore. And this morning, the sand was dotted with jellyfish washed up by last night's storm. I'd never seen a jellyfish before. They really do look like jelly.
I just got a new "tool," an iPad. I know, I know, I've sold out. But! Maybe, just maybe, it will let me get back to posting more regularly.
I've missed you, though perhaps you haven't missed me too much. And I've missed the discipline of finding something moderately interesting in every day that is not just about the law or my family. Today, dolphins and jellyfish. Tomorrow, who knows?
