Well, January and the new year. Really it's just the earth going around the sun and all that so don't get too worked up. Seriously though, January is important since I decided I'd start editing nano in this month. Also, this month marks a big transition in my life: Career woman. Deep breath.
So here we go. Good luck to anyone who made new year's resolutions, mine is to be on time (not very exciting, I know).
Now for some links.
- An article on "Cause Marketing," which is what happens when Corporation X says to buy its products and they'll donate cash to a certain charity. It always seemed a bit fishy to me (why not just donate to the charity directly?). At the Anti-Advertising Agency website, found on keri smith's blog.
- An article over at the Guardian about "Ashley's treatment," in which parents whose daughter's mental development stopped at three months decided to surgically remove her womb, breast buds, and give her strong hormone doses to keep her body like a nine year old girl's for the rest of her life. Her parents have a website about the situation which is also worth checking out.
Occasional art, comics, food, and other things of less interest to the general public.
