Swainson’s Hawks in Anza Borrego

I went to Anza Borrego over the weekend. Had a wonderful picnic, which included a rare bird sighting: Swainson’s hawks migrate to/from Argentina. They ride the thermals really high in the sky. All I saw was two white UFOs. The white on the underside of the wing. Their flight pattern of this pair of hawks was beautiful, they seemed to be playing in the thermals. It was awesome.

We had every intention of going on a full-on hike, but really we just ended up walking around a little bit.

Here’s a link to a closeup photo of a Swainson Hawk, taken by Vic Murayama.

Completed Speaking at the ISACA Conference

Matt Harrigan and I just spoke at the big ISACA conference today in Los Angeles. Jeromie Jackson was unable to attend the ISACA Conference to speak on the topic of Managing by Measurement Through the Use of A Controls Framework, so we filled in. It was a little last-minute. I had less than 24 hours to prepare… but it all worked out.

CREEPY: the perils of being a pretty girl living alone

I received a very, very creepy “love poem” from a secret admirer in my apartment complex today. It described how he intends to have sex with me. It was so creepy that I called the police and filed an incident report. I’ll be buying a stun-gun, pepper spray, and looking for a new apartment over the next few days. Meanwhile, I’ll be spending nights with friends.

The policeman and policewoman who came to the apartment confirmed that it is abnormal behavior, and asked neighbors if they had any info (which they did not). There is no crime (yet), but they assured me that it was good not to disregard this note, and they will be looking at the full list of sex-offenders to see if any live in the complex. They also assured me that if a sister received the note, they’d recommend that she handle it the same way I am handling it.

Creepy.
