Last night I pitched my idea at the Car Connectivity Consortium Hackathon prep night.

- 1 minute for

- 1 great idea with

- 1 slide

The goal is to win people to your App development team, to code one awesome App, and to win the contest, get mentoring, enjoy limelight, and get some $$$.

Mirror Link, the CCC Hackathon partner, sponsored this launch evening to introduce its software. Marketers could try out their concept before the real pitch two weeks down the road (yes, pun intended).

You guessed it. The Apps to be developed relate to connected cars.

Yes, you also guessed it. The crowd assembled 200 male car geeks.  Oh, and 5 women, of which I was the eldes by twice the age.

Turn Work into Fun

Running = WORK (in my book).  It’s effort, sweat, and sore muscles.

And yet, I wanted to run yesterday as The Color Runners pranced by me during the Paris race.  It’s a 5K race and every kilometer is marked by a shower of color.  They call it “The Happiest 5K on the planet.”

What if we could infuse our home management with such joy?  Here’s my go at it:

Playing with Food

Guess who plays the most with food in our home ?  ME !

Don’t get me wrong.  I don’t twiddle with the nourishment on my plate, cut it into a million pieces, and make sure not a smidgen ever reaches my mouth. 

Nonetheless, I do seek entertainment in devising meals.  We tend to repeat meals, especially the easy-to-make and enjoyed-without-a-fuss varieties.  I get bored eating the same thing.

New Attitude About Love

Making love? Tonight? Again?!

When we had four boys under seven, I fantasized about going on a relationship sabbatical. No calling after me; no touching me.

My days (and nights) were filled with demands from all sides: Crying baby demanding something (to be figured out) NOW. A teaching-opportunity (a.k.a. a fight between the kids) here. Spilled milk there. “How do you write ‘cat’?” “Can you read to me?” “PIPI!!!!!” Urgent diaper change coming through!! The drop which invariably made my cup topple over was when, at the end of the day my husband would cuddle up and whisper, “Honey...(wink)” Heaven sounded like one year of being “off-call.”

But what was my attitude teaching the kids? Me >>> We. ("Me" is much more important than "We")  Oops.

Here are some thoughts that helped me change my attitude.

(Photo story:  we visited this pre-Inca Largo Museum as a family.  The Erotic Room sure provided a memorable experience!)
