The hardest question for me to answer in this world is always the "Tell us all about you" question. The best way for me to answer is that "I am composed of contradictions and subject to change without notice."

Fortune Cookie

I decided that today was a good day to go eat Chinese food (truly, I think any day is a good day to eat Chinese food, but that is another story). This is the fortune that was in my cookie at lunch today.

“You are capable of extremely hard work and dedication.”
Lucky Numbers: 3 10 15 23 39 . 26

Okay, so I am capable of extremely hard work, but it doesn't say anything about my attitude about it.

Unlocking a little freedom

We are once again free to take something that we legally purchased and choose the service provider. Strangely enough we have been able to do this for years with our land-line phones, but not so with our "never-leave-home-without-it" cellular phones. Some cellular phone companies lock the phones they sell and make it very difficult and potentially costly (in more ways than one) to have them unlocked. Not anymore - according to Gizmodo we now have the freedom to have our cell phones unlocked and change carriers as we see fit. To quote their site:
"Copyright laws were amended to allow customers to unlock the software on their cellphones so they can take their phones with them from wireless carrier to wireless carrier."

Happy Turkey Day

Today has been the very American holiday of over-eating and family bickering, also known as Thanksgiving. To bring things a little bit back into perspective I give thanks for the following (in no particular order and not all-inclusive):

  • My life-partner and the fact that she show's me every day what it means to love and to be loved
  • My health
  • My mother for bringing me into this world and being there when I need her
  • My father and his quiet way of making things sane again
  • My brother and sisters for many reasons
  • My 11+ nieces and nephews
  • Great friends
  • My crazy zoo of animals and their unconditional love
  • Food to eat (and over-eat)
  • A roof over my head
  • A good job (no matter how crazy it makes me sometimes)
  • All those things I can't think of right now but mean the world to me

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

The theatrical trailer is available on YouTube....

Rumor has it that you can see this trailer when you go to see the movie Happy Feet which is on my list to go and see tomorrow.

Update: This same Harry Potter trailer can be seen before the Happy Feet movie. A side note - Happy Feet is well worth the price of admission it is absolutely adorable and gives you that warm fuzzy feeling while watching it.

Nintendo Wii Commercial

I really have loved the Apple commercial campaign "Hi, I'm a Mac..." that they have going on right now. But I couldn't imagine even Apple going to these lengths to get people into their stores. This new (not sure it is really real) commercial from Nintendo is just too funny for words: Link.

The commercial (for those of you still reading that didn't already click) is Playstation 3 vs. the Nintendo Wii done in Apple style. One very excellent commercial!

From G4 Attack of the Show

Betty Beauty

Just when I thought I had seen it all, something comes along to prove that I was oh so very wrong in that assumption.......

Pink Betty Beauty

This is just what I always needed, pubic hair coloring in various shades. You can buy your very own bottle on the Betty Beauty website.

I don't even know where to begin on this product. I think I will just leave it to your imagination.

As found on Strange New Products.

not so wasted space

Not too long ago I mentioned here that I had a new iPod (80GB) - White. Well, I have completed my file transfer, recreated some of the lost playlists, updated my podcasts, and renamed it. I ended up with a grand total of 60+ gb of music and such on it. I think that Steve Jobs better get to work on a larger version of it for those people like me....

iPod Video

Out of necessity more than anything else, I have now upgraded to the new iPod Video 80gb. I have been whining about the lack of space on it for a couple of months now and my life-partner decided that it was time she made the whining stop and purchased me a new one at my favorite place to window shop - The Apple Store. My previous iPod a 4th generation 40gb version was lacking in one small detail - enough space for my music collection. I will now begin the wonderfully lengthy process of transferring all of my music files from one iPod to another. Most people think it is a fairly simple process, and overall they are right. However, when you have 40+gb of music (my entire CD collection transferred over to mp3), then it is no small affair. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
