some things to do
spostare, solo per un po ‘, a Italia, dove luca e io perfezionare la nostra capacità di pasta e vinificazione combine experience, food, passion, growing, and responsibility into a fabulous supper club obtain enlightenment (ha! of course turning spiritual growth into a bulleted point on a to do list. how typical of me.)
I just watched that rebecca black video for the first time after hearing about it for a while now. ……… wtf was that?
“I grew up with Donald Faison. My friend lost her virginity to him at, like, 13.” People from nyc are funny.

I was walking home from work today thinking about where my children should go to school, and thinking that I need to move into a more diverse (economically, racially, religiously, etc.) neighborhood so that they are able to see broader spectrum of the world. Then I realized, wait, they don’t exist yet. When did I grow up?

Patients complicate. Doctors figure. Nurses fix. Therapists heal. Techs labor. Residents learn. Surgeons save. Pharmacists treat. Staff run. Chaplains pray. Dietitians feed. Students observe. Designers were called in to connect.
gtixd: Wait for it… Suwappu: Hinting at augmented reality toys using connected devices. Still ambiguous whether we’re looking at a video prototype or a working model, but maybe that’s the point.
Small Touches of Humanity
I’ve been shadowing people in the ICU for a few days now, jotting down notes and generally staying as invisible as possible so I can see people as they are. Most go about their normal day caring for patients. I was scheduled to follow the residents around, and for those who don’t know, as I didn’t, when you go into the ICU at Mayo your main doc is called a consultant....

I got drunk dialed by a guy I used to date at 1:30am. He calls every 6 months or so when he’s completely wasted. His message this time was “hey natalie, I was just reading your mhmpfile (I think he meant to say ‘profile’) and wanted to tell you PPPPPPPPHHHHHHHHHBBBBBBTTTTT!” (The sound of someone blowing raspberries.) Glad I didn’t pick up. What the hell?
Said to me over drinks by a long term creative from mayo: “Yah, you come into this job thinking you’re going to change things and you’re all idealistic. Give it two or three years. The system and the bullshit will crush that right out of you. You’ll learn not to care anymore, or you’ll quit.” Half of me knows what he’s saying is true in most instances of...
“As old as civilization, the Genius Cartel is an originality-suppression agency that permeated our lives. It tyrannized Galileo into recanting the fruits of his own scientific genius. It handed Socrates a cup of hemlock, put a match to Joan of Arc, and fomented the crucifixion of Christ. Among it’s collaborators, the cartel numbers lawmakers, lawkeepers, bureaucrats, clergy,...

What gets you excited?
I’m looking for great amazing super far out anythings. What’s happening in technology, health, music, art, design, education, business… ANYTHING! What are you seeing happening that’s getting you all excited about the future?
Do doctors want you healthy? Do business men want you sick? What about doctors who become businessmen?
Me: “So what are the local foods you guys are known for around here?” Landlady: “lutefisk.” Me: “oh…. thats cool….” (thinking: “uhg…i’m gonna boot.”)

The Environmental Protection Agency will stop monitoring pollution and also...– NPR reports on what’s closed, and what isn’t, during a government shutdown in the U.S. OH, what the hell? All this because the GOP hates planned parenthood? What a joke.
I’m gonna go get hammered with Papyrus
How many of you...
know what this is?
Some thoughts I've thought today:
How can I simultaneously feel way, way out of my league, and still be totally excited about the possibilities for some of these projects? How do I teach surgeons the steps for product development, when I’m really just learning them too? How do I run workshops teaching basic design skills when I’ve just recently grasped them myself? How do I get analytical thinkers, who are...
So I need an illustrator file to pull artwork off of for a project to get people excited. It’s not official, it won’t leave the floor, and it’s just so people will think it’s fun and put a smile on their faces. I could just make up the artwork myself but I wanted the colors and the fonts so it’ll match what we’ve already got. So I asked the art director...
