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.

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.”

I planned on writing in this today.

Maybe later.

I’m bored at work. I literally have no work to do at the moment. Read on for the log series of quizzes I am occupying myself with…

Wow… or… WoW Rather

June 21, 2007

So I’m in WoW mode now apparently. I just had my first night of playing for a while, and it’s quite enjoyable so far. Started my Blood Elf Priest “Enrith” and managed to get to level 10. One of the things that I’ve noticed most about the game so far is the artistic skill put into the design of the environment of this game. Namely I’m referencing the Blood Elf capital of Silvermoon City. However geeky you might think that the game in general is, you have to appreciate the skill put into designing and fleshing out the designs in this game. It’s quite impressive to just travel around this massive game world and see what these people have created.

Getting back into this realm of geekdom has actually inspired me to re-read the work I’ve put into the world I created a long time back and do some revising and adding. I created a new fantasy-based world with it’s own unique races (none of the human-dwarf-elf-orc etc standards), gods, histories, and soon to be magics and languages. It’s entertaining and a good outlet for some of the creativity that I’ve been missing in my life. One of the newest races I’ve added are called the “Vespertine,” the name being inspired by a song by my friend Edward’s band “The Belvedines.” “Vespertine” is an adjective that relates to something happening in the evening, usually in biology. It was also apparently the name of an album by Bjork, which I didn’t know.


Anyway, I’ve actually been pretty productive at work today and I’m going to jump back into it and get some more work done before I leave at 3.
