Stuff and Things

July 16, 2007

That title is complete crap, incidentally.

I’m at work (as always) and bored (as always) and figured I’d have a non-tech overdose post. I AM looking for the Missing Sync program for the Hiptop platform, which has been discontinued (which hopefully means it’s free now).

This weekend was AWESOME. I got to spend the evening with Charlie on Saturday since his family was out of town. We watched “Minority Report” and “The Wedding Singer” and just relaxed and laid around. It was one of the most comfortable and relaxing nights I’ve had in a loooooong time. It’s amazing to me how just spending time with Charlie makes me feel, just completely at peace. He’s great =)

Sunday we went to McKinely Park with Lex and friends since we were unable to go to the lake, and I have to say it was a LOT of fun! We laid around on the blankets in the shade of a big ol’ tree and dozed and chatted and threw chips at each other. Nice lazy afternoon. We got frozen yogurt at Big Spoon afterward, which is always delicious.

I get to pick out some new glasses soon, hopefully next week. I’m wearing my glasses for the next few weeks since I need to give my eyes a break from my contacts, and my current frames are getting kinda tired. I’ve changed my style a few times since I got them (minor changes, but changes all the same) so they don’t really fit me anymore. So it’s time to go get some new ones! I was poking around the interwebs today and found a style that interests me, so I’ll toss it up here

I like the detatched sides on these with the thicker ear pieces. Dunno about the light brown on the sides since I wear stark black and white so often, and that might look a little odd. Never had anything Armani, and I bet these cost almost as much as my damn phone…

There was another style that was frameless and the earpieces can come off and be switched out with other colors and styles, which was interesting. With the same frames you can have variability.

Well, I’m gonna get back to data entry. I need to hit Edward up to try to podcast tonight. I really want to get the next episode up since it’s been more than a month. So hopefully keep an ear out!


Phone Decision

July 16, 2007

So after that long and drawn out post about choosing a phone (and wanting the iPhone), I’ve decided to go with the Sidekick 3. I can get most of the features I need and get the Missing Sync solution to be able to use my iCal calendar and Address Book with my phone. This will also allow me to wait for a time to see what the next iteration of iPod will be before getting one. I can wait for the year for my contract to be up before I get anything better.

My settlement should be coming in about a week, so I’ll be back to Sidekicking it up very soon!

I’m debating on whether to get the standard black and silver version or pay another $50 to get the snazzy gold and white D-Wade version. It’s a basketball player-designed phone with a basketball texture back, but I like the coloring a LOT more than the black and silver with black and blue keys of the standard. I’ll make that decision when I get to it I suppose.

So I really haven’t had much chance to catch up with things online yet. I have my Audiogasm review mostly done, was able to get to some Generation Q mail, and got all of my bills paid and finances balanced and taken care of. Other than that, I haven’t had a whole lot of chance to catch up. So, my next step in reining in all of my work is to start looking at smartphones that I can use effectively to keep everything together.

This is a LONG post so I’ll throw in a More tag so you can read my rant if you want without cluttering the page.

So this weekend is too full for me to take Charlie out. So it’ll be pushed back.Sucky. 

Medical Developments

July 9, 2007

So for about two year’s I’ve had symptoms of Chronic Sinusitis (sinus blockage, EXCRUCIATING headaches, etc) and I finally got in to have it checked out. Turns out I have a polyp (aka TUMOR) in my sinuses. I’m on hold with Kaiser right now to talk to my doctor.

How exciting.

So I’ve spent very little time working online for the last two weeks. I must admit, it’s been kinda nice to take a bit of a break from my online life, but now it’s time to get back into it and pull it all back together. After a camping trip with my boyfriend I checked all my e-mail accounts and had quite a bit of mail. Over the next few days I replied to a bunch of stuff and didn’t check it for a while, but apparently it all got denied somehow. I’m guessing there was an error with my mail program, which sucks, but I just need to tear myself away from WoW at home long enough to get to all of it.

So, in that vein of thinking, I have a number of things to do:

  • Re-check and sift through all my e-mail (probably upwards of 50 new mails at this point)
  • Follow up on the new reporter applications for Generation Q
  • Get my new Audiogasm up (Paramore’s new album ROCKS, by the way)
  • Get a few new articles started for Generation Q
  • Fine some article ideas to distribute to writers

Lots of other stuff to. Add to that detailing my car, going to the gym, dealing with family, and making as much time as possible with Charlie (which has been in short supply lately), and I’m a busy boy.

Speaking of Charlie, I’m trying to take him out on a date this weekend, and I have very few ideas for fun things to do. I have some money finally, but I’d much rather not have to spend a whole lot. But I would spend every cent I have to make him happy.

And now on top of everything else, I have been presented with some opposing opportunities at work and have some decisions to make (as to where I will be transferring to). It’s actually quite stressful at the moment, but I’m hoping that I make the right decision.

Well, time to get back to work. Woo.

disneygown.jpgSo many people dream of one day being swept away by their very own Prince (or Princess) Charming, and Disney has just the thing to make that dream feel even more realistic.

On April 15th they unveiled their line of Disney Princess inspired wedding gowns designed by Kirstie Kelly at the New York Bridal Fashion Week. They are advertised to be inspired by, and not copies of, the dresses worn by the Disney Princesses in their films. Disney Consumer Products says that “the collection combines a fashion-forward look with timeless elements inspired by the Disney Princesses themselves, including Ariel, Aurora/Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine and Snow White.”
