You’ll probably laugh at me, but The Sims 3 made me cry last night. I’m sure it had something to do with my female hormone fluctuations, but regardless, it was rather upsetting to see my “sim me” age well before her time. She had made it to the end of her athletic career, but was… Continue reading This is a Dark Game
Windows Live So I saw all the silly commercials for Windows Live, but I thought, “Why would I want to use some Microsoft program for that when I’ve already got Google (picasa, gmail, blogger, etc.)?” Well, the answer was clear: 25 GB of space per account. Google’s Picasa software is very easy to… Continue reading Testing Out Windows Live
Driscoll Catholic, my high school, is closing at the end of this year. I’m shocked and very saddened, as if I could get any sadder at this point. The people, the building, the memories; all of it feels so much further away now. I remember the auditorium, where I felt so at home. The prop… Continue reading So Much and Yet So Little
Today’s technology is a giant open door for possibility. The capability of all these new gadgets is astounding, and yet I’m remarkably disappointed. Call me a cynic, call me picky, but I am drastically unimpressed by the iPhone and Blackberry Storm. I want to like them. Hell, I want to be obsessed with them. The… Continue reading An Open Letter to RIM, Apple and Others
I’m really excited about Halloween this year. I’m going to be dressing as Dr. Cameron from the TV show House. I’ve already produced her name tag, pictured at right, which is based on the glimpse of her name badge in some promotional photos. Her fan site, JMorrisonFan was immensely helpful in finding pictures to base… Continue reading Prep for Halloween
I guess it’s time for a “Major Update,” since I haven’t posted one of those in a year. Plus, I was surprised to learn that some people actually read this. I can’t disappoint on my promise of Yearly Muffins. [Boyfriend] Jonathan and I are still together, and we just celebrated our 1-year anniversary. We’re headed to… Continue reading Major Update #5
My parents bought a 2007 Toyota Sienna LE tonight. I was there… and it took two and a half hours. The warranty room was by far the most high-pressure sales situation I’ve been in lately. It was insane. I’m glad that’s over with, at least.
You heard right. The panda bears have been permanently removed from my bedroom, as has been the atrocious disintegrating red carpet. The redecoration process has been a very long and arduous task, but I received a lot of help from Jonathan, my parents, and even the folks at All Tile. If you’re curious, we used… Continue reading Panda Bears Banished from the Bedroom
Jonathan helped tremendously with the cleaning, redecorating and redesigning my room. The pictures (in slideshow at right) say a lot. Together, we cleaned out & removed the entertainment center, cleaned out under my bed, moved the existing bookshelf (took help from Dad and a 2-wheel dolly as well), added in another shelving unit, cleaned out… Continue reading Really Radical Room Redecoration
Jonathan will be coming to visit again on Easter weekend. 14 Days, 4 Hours, 47 Minutes according to my countdown Google gadget. We’ve got a lot of plans made so far, so I may as well relay some of them. He’s flying in Friday afternoon, getting in just when I get off of work. Since… Continue reading Flyin’ and Singin’ in Pairs, OH MY!
