My sister sent me this comic that made me chuckle...

Shipping Insecurities to CA

I have to recommend this NYTimes article appearing in the modern love section...It's written by a dear friend and mentions moving to Cali. What could be a more appropriate link for a Thursday afternoon?

RIP iBook G4

A dead laptop and a cross-country move does not for regular posting make. Currently mourning my iBook G4, a loyal laptop that I thought would last forever...Praying for resurrection at the Mac store, too.

Girl with Pen Group Blog Goes Live

Girls with Pens

Yesterday, the new Girl with Pen group blog went live. Because my laptop died (sad! and blog-inhibiting), I wasn't able to share this awesome event in a timely fashion. About once each month, I will be posting a "Blog U" feature on GWP and there are many other great contributors to keep your RSS feeds full between my articles. New format, new bloggers, same great content - there are so many great reasons to check it out! Why are you still here?! (But do come back!)

Big News, Big Sabbatical

Moving to the West Country

Big news, ABWAB readers! As if there aren't enough headlines for you to follow as the presidential race gets rarin', I have one more item to add - I will be relocating to the San Francisco Bay Area soon as I begin a new stage of my career. This girl is going tech - interweb search style.

Okay. So...maybe it's not quite major news...I'm not holding my breath about getting on the newscast at six or anything. But I think it's big!

Leaving NYC and my feminist-y life here will certainly be bittersweet, but I am excited by this cross-country adventure I am embarking on. Posting will be light, however, until I get my feet on the ground (perhaps mid-November?). I'm looking forward to experieincing the rich feminist community SF offers - and perhaps meeting a few ABWAB readers out there, too.

Ready or not, Cali, here I come...
