  • ❖ Midnights at the Hive Mind I tʼs been a strange summer for me, sleep-wise. Iʼve been working at home, and without an external structure, my sleep cycle has evolved to a schedule usually seen only in teenagers and the severely jet- lagged. I sleep so late that I canʼt bring myself to admit the hour to anyone — it shames me just to have the dog know what time I get up! But I try to redeem myself by working at the computer long past midnight, which is when I find myself visiting online forums populated by friendly young men. Now, please donʼt stop reading there, because itʼs truly not what it sounds like! Website development is what Iʼve been working on, stuff like XHTML, CSS, Javascript and CMS configuration. This is not actually programming, my son informs me, but itʼs close enough for an old broad like me. Fortunately, when I get stuck, there is help just a click away at any hour, day or night. It turns out that thereʼs a sort of “hive mind” always buzzing at online message boards on these topics, and all the bees are young men, giving each other helpful suggestions like, “Dude, in the index.php, try adding style = ʻposition: relativeʼ to one of the divs in the hornnav module.” Sure, thereʼs an occasional young woman, or an old guy (my age, that is) on the board. But from my All Natural Yogurt • Fresh Juice • Smoothies • Curbside Service • Free WiFi • Art observations, it appears that I am the only over-50 female on the planet engaging in this type of late-night code wrangling. And thatʼs a shame, because I think a lot of empty-nested women with insomnia would love it. Fiddling around “under the hood” of a website is as compelling as a knotty crossword puzzle or Sudoku, In Downtown Winter Park plus it gives you something to show for your effort. The dearth of females in this area is as mystifying 100% All Natural Yogurt Live and Active Cultures to me as our under-representation among finger-style guitarists, National Geography Bee contestants, and late night talk show hosts. I think itʼs time for a change. So, hereʼs to new interests at any age and time of day, and without preconceived notions of gender suitability. Maybe, when I get done with my current • Only 80 Calories projects, Iʼll pick up the guitar. Or maybe Iʼll create a (per 4 oz. serving) • Kosher-Dairy Certified late-night workshop, something like “Wacky Women • Fat Free and Low Calorie Good Source of Calcium & Vitamin C • Gluten Free Weaving Websites.” Because this is just way too much fun to leave to the boys. FREE Small Frozen Yogurt* Thanks for reading, and hang in there, folks... (With purchase of large frozen yogurt) summerʼs almost over! Iʼll let you know when the new *(1 per person) offer includes one small frozen yogurt; toppings are additional. Must present coupon at time of purchase. Cannot be combined with any other offer.
