punks exposed

Back in 1971, when I was 24, my life was a terrifying blur of goats and window-pane acid. I had just moved to the Catskills to grow organic kohlrabi and rutabagas, and I was just becoming aware of sheetrock. Crazed hippies lived all around me and we had orgies up in the back forty. No electricity. We pumped water from the stream, had propane lights, and cooked on a wood stove. Nobody had the faintest fucking clue what I was thinking and I liked it like that.

Here's the thing:

God love the interwebs because what 8 years ago now or 7 anyway I ran into Halley online and years tick by and never mind all the things that have transpired in our lives in the meanwhile, I've lost count, but I was talking to her a few weeks ago and somehow I mentioned that I thought something was amiss with me. Confusion has been the number one symptom of the last month or so, or really having no brain at all; complete and utter confusion with daily tasks; I mean multiple times each day walking into rooms only to feel a jolt of electric in my temples when I try to remember WHY oh why I had left the room I was in before. Telling my daughter and husband the same thing over and over without recall. "YOU JUST SAID THAT MOM!"

Yeah that stuff happens to everyone.

But it doesn't happen to me.

Not six times in one day!!!

Until now.

And so I'm telling Halley maybe I have a brain tumor or need to find a new breed of psychotropic medication or something, and she does that Halley thing with that laugh: "OH DUH HELLO! It's Menopause. Have you NOT READ about it?"

I was like, Menopaaaaa.....?

Like a ton of brick the truth hits you.

And so I read about the forgetfulness and confusion and women showing up at their doctor's offices at my age wondering about dementia and brain tumors.

And I even cried, because I am telling you ladies who are working for a living - working for yourselves for a living using your BRAIN to work for a living -- and you're all 'OOO this conference and that conference and OOOO i think i'll work on my book now.. and Oooo what a great post..." GET THE FUCK READY FOR Menopause - it's gonna bite your ass but good.

Holy disruption to the central mental circuitry.

Now I get why women used to have kids early and not work out of the home -- by the time they'd get to menopause their kids would be out of the house and their husbands half deaf: time for a nap.

SO I've just started reading up on it, and apparently the early menopausal symptoms are the ones that completely mess with your brain and electric circuitry, so I guess that's what I'm in.

It's hard for me to tell because the OBGYN surgeries I've had have taken away any semblence of a cycle. But I'm turning 46, I ache, I have no brain, I sleep weird - like mostly not at night - I have to run after words that used to sit on the tip of my tongue, and I cry when I read books, and yell when I don't read books.

I forgot what I was going to do next, but I'm pretty sure if I go walk into a room something will come to me.

Look forward to more of my menopausal meanderings - oh I'm sure you already are - right here on allied.

Whoever you are.

It's getting toward june

i go back to meg's sometimes to leave a comment for her.
she opted out of life two years ago, i like to drop by.
i like to see who else came to copy code and say hello.
i like to see their messages to meg.
i wish if we said the right thing, we could bring her back.

Perhaps You Should Examine Your Colon!

Okay. Look. I can't take it anymore.

How many times in the last 7 years have we been through the women-free TOP LISTS OF BLOGGING. Or the penis-only MOST IMPORTANT CONFERENCE IN TECHNOLOGY events?

How many men (and women!) have come before these idiots to say -- "Whoops! Sloppy reporting - I didn't realize I had all men in my aggregator - what boring shmuck I am."

The reason I'm bothering to even point to this article is because it's The Fucking Industry Standard (which I thought died during web 1.0 -- must have been resuscitated into beta form--look mom i died and went to beta) and it's an article SPECIFICALLY dedicated to finding the TOP NON-A-LIST blogs worth reading. 25 of them to be exact.

And not one of them a woman's blog.

I can think of at least 20 instances like this in my short memory. The boys at The Industry STANDARD might have happened upon some of these if they didn't take the lazy way out or decide to stay put in the typical circle jerk of links feeding the echo chamber.

My own unfucking of Stowe Boyd comes to mind. O'Reilly, not a renowned women's advocate in his own right, even published a list of important articles by and about women in tech to help educate the doofus brigade.

There's Shelley on progress - and no woman in blogging has taken more grief for raising this issue than Shelley; and there's her pointer to Karl on speaker diversity and why it matters.

(It's all related @richi, trust me).

And there's always the lazy way to get some legs on your aggregator, boys. Just go look at the hundreds of women-penned tech+ blogs listed on Blogher. Don't like Tech? There are other categories. Whatdoyaknow!

It's like each year a new crop of idiots blooms on the net.
breathe in with me now....
aaaah the fresh scent of stupid.

Somewhere, some time ago, I remember reading a post -- whose was it, I forget? -- where a woman said: It is Not My Job to do your job, you sloppy reporter, and find some diversity that might make your next Top X List or Conference a bit more interesting.

That's how I feel. Just do your job.

But before I go unwrap the duct tape from around my head, let me address a couple of the commenters over at TIS (that's what we called it before it died and went to beta).

Now besides the author @Richi's lame response: "Hey I don't discriminate and I don't Reverse Discriminate either--LOOKIE ME!" (okay I'm summarizing), old JohnMc had a great addition to the conversation:
"jeneane, In a world of opportunity, crank up a blog and give it your best shot. Competition and voices is what keeps the soup hot."


WOW what an IDEA!

Starting my own blog is such a good idea I thought of it back in 2001!

"competition and voices is what keeps the soup hot."

Oh. My. God. The Twitolution will most certainly be televised.

But the thing that really irked me was the comment from the person who was probably trying to be nice--hard to tell. Eric Hill said: "Perhaps one should consider a "Top 25 up-and-coming female bloggers" report. Just a thought."

Actually Eric, no.

No that's not quite it.

NO that's pretty much not quite the point at all.

Nice idea on it's own, but perhaps someone should consider a "Top 25 up-and-coming gardening blogs." That's not what we're talking about here.





Oh lord.

Stop me.

Really, you have to stop me now.

love you all.

well, not exactly "all."

8 Reasons Why You Should NOT Let Your Child Around Your Macbook's Photo Booth


Who needs a press release when you can write a headline like that? Yojo Mobile's MizPee has its "Flush of the Year" contest underway in Portand right now. Oregonians are encouraged to add their favorite (aka - cleanest, best equipped, safest, rockinest) restroom here. Want to let your readers vote? Read about the contest and grab the Portland voting widget here.

And yes, as certain as I am that gas will reach $5.00 a gallon by Labor Day, you can rest assured that Flush of the Year will be coming to your town soon.

(Um, btw you don't have to wait for the contest to add your favorite place to piss. You can add a toilet anytime online. And when you're on the go, go to on your cell phone to find the nearest clean restroom OPEN at the time of your query (kuz mizpee does location- and time-based search). Yeah, it's pretty cool.)
