I was in Digg when I saw this blog:

Clever writer. Then, it occurred to me, this is what my life on a postcard would look like:

“The 25 Words of Work / Life Wisdom Writing Project”

with 7 comments

I created a Twitter account. I am enthralled. I love all the conversations. As I sit in my home office running my business, I feel a lot less isolated. I actually feel as if I have adult interactions during my day. Trust me, it is a rarity and a treat.

It was on Twitter where Vicky @eeUS posted a link to her 25 words in response to Liz Strauss’ @lizstrauss

The 25 Words of Work / Life Wisdom Writing Project

Vicky’s 25 words were inspirational. So much so, I was motivated to check out Liz’s explanation of the project. Then, I was so intrigued, I wanted to give it a try. Here is my offering:

Marriage is overrated.
Marriage is forced by a society obsessed with conformity.
Live up to society standards or be shunned.
Not everyone is for marriage.

Gave Cafe.com another try

leave a comment »

Ever hopeful I went back to Cafe.com again. This time I clicked on the single player games. To my delight I was able to play a couple of games.

The games I chose looked to be interesting from the menu. However were a little rudimentary in play. It is interesting what you get accustomed to using as a gamer that a developer might not remember. Like the quit key. Or the I am bored and want to return to the main menu so I can choose another game button.

Some of the games looked like knock off renditions of Playfirst Games. I am a frequent Playfirst gamer. WOW..if Playfirst added the interactive element NOW that would be gamer heaven!ppl-play-checkers.jpg

Louis Vuitton sending a mixed message?

leave a comment »

What shoes are to some women, handbags are to me. Handbags offer me the ability to micro organize myself. Organization is one of those skills that comes naturally to me so handbags are appealing.

I was perusing Technorati when I saw a link to The Bag Snob. Now, I do not have to tell you I could not click fast enough. To my delight, The Bag Snob turned out to be a pretty cool site.

Here is an image that caught my attention. It is Keith Richards posing for Louis Vuitton. Huh? Ok, I know I am an average woman. I know there is no way in this world Louis Vuitton wants us common folk to be caught dead with their high hoity toity bags. However, how can you chose Keith Richards?

Do they want potential purchasers to say “I want the bag that is older than dirt”? or how about, “I’ll take the stodgiest bag you have. Yes. The Louis Vuitton.”

I guess Louis Vuitton was not going for the trendy shopper this season.carry-bag.jpg

Was Osama Bin Laden A CIA agent?

with one comment

“Was Bin Laden A CIA Agent?

Most of the world believes Bin Laden was a CIA agent. He was first funded in the 80s by the CIA. There is also no record of him using the term, ‘Al Qaida’, which means ‘the toilet’ until after 9-11.” from http://www.evtv1.com/player.aspx?itemnum=10792

Whether this is fact or fabrication I do not know.  However, I like challenging myself to think outside the box.  I like it when people challenge mainstream perceptions shaped by the media.

Virus Alert

leave a comment »

It’s Friday. Lets have some midday merriment:

ALERT The Centre for Disease Control has issued a medical alert about a highly contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted orally, by hand, and even electronically. This virus is called Weary Overload Recreational Killer (WORK). If you receive WORK from your boss, any of your colleagues, or anyone else via any means whatsoever – DO NOT TOUCH IT. This virus will wipe out your private life completely. If you should come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises. Take two good friends to the nearest grocery store and purchase one or both of the antidotes – Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) and Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER). Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system. You should immediately forward this medical alert to five friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.
