Regarding ‘MySpace’

I agree 100% with Russell Beattie, I don’t see either what’s so special about myspace.com. It’s just a badly designed site that everytime I get a link to go there I almost throw up.

Sleep A Thing Of The Past

New drugs which will allow people to survive on only two hours sleep a day are being developed, scientists have said.

If this was a good thing mother nature would already provide it. STAY AWAY.

Waffles

And so my beloved husband cooked waffles for us tonight! Isn’t he a sweetheart? 🙂

Romance vs Sex

My JBQ does not know what “being romantic” means. He had to look it up on google to find out some not-so-accurate definition of the word and then he was telling ME that I don’t have the definition right. JBQ thinks that “being romantic” is about sex, while it is not. Not necessarily anyway.

Being romantic‘ means being affectionate, being soft, showing that your partner is your whole world, making small gifts (e.g. flowers), sharing a beautiful moment with your partner (e.g. looking over at the moonlight, hand in hand) etc. There is no sex in the process, not at that point at least. It might LEAD to sex, but being romantic is not about sex. It’s about emotions and how you show them.

I am writing this so some baffoons like my husband might be reading this blog and learn a thing or two, as it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow and might become handy to them. You never know. 😉

Even more stuff

My JBQ came back from ski this weekend, he fell, he damaged some of his left ribs. Now, I can’t grab him and hug him like I usually do when he comes back from work…

I spoke to Nathan last night on the phone, what a cool guy, always in good spirit. He apparently got an iBook G4 recently.

The Plantronics Pulsar 590A arrived today. I will be publishing the review this week on TuxTops.com, but I can say that it would have being the perfect “10 out of 10” Bluetooth product if it was not for a single –and important– flaw. UPDATE: Published.

I need more sleep. Yawn… ZZZzzzz….

More stuff

There is no way in hell that I would inject myself with an RFID chip just to go to work. I would prefer to work at MacDonalds instead.

On other news, I finally took the big decision and reformatted my iPod with the FAT32 filesystem. I tried 5 different iPod backup solutions and all had their problems. The one I used at the end was not able to read correctly a bunch of file names during the backup to the Mac disk…

This coming week I will be receiving the Plantronics A2DP stereo Bluetooth headphones. Supposedly this is the best Bluetooth pair ever. Let’s see if my search for the best stereo Bluetooth headphones will end.

Lastly, I am feeling a bit low lately. I am a bit sick too, and that makes it worse. Oh, well, a few more decades and then it’s all over.

Apple already feels the heat

Three new cellphone announcements today, and all three were “music phones”. Sure, a cellphone is not as good as a dedicated mp3 player, but you know, that’s what killed the PDA too: the competing convergence device is “good enough”. That “good enough” factor is what driving the film cameras out of business in favor of bad quality 2 MP digicams. I have said that many times and I will have to say again: the future is *convergence and convenience* and Apple _will have_ to enter the phone market (want it or not).

Put a blog up for a new friend

After discussing it over the phone today, I created some graphics and a new blog for Nathan Baesel (the actor who portrays ‘Deputy Lewis Sirk’ on the sci-fi TV series ‘Invasion’). I take care of the administration part, he takes care of the actual content. If you live in USA don’t forget to watch him this Wednesday at 10/9c PM on ABC. He has an extensive part on this week’s ‘Invasion’ episode (called “All God’s Creatures”).

I guess this explains everything…

A team from the University of Pisa in Italy found the bodily chemistry which makes people sexually attractive to new partners lasts, at most, two years. When couples move into a “stable relationship” phase, other hormones take over, Chemistry World reports.

‘Invasion’ might get cut, Part II

Out of the blue ABC today put the sci-fi drama Invasion on the ice, at least until April. This really pisses me off because after the producers fixed the “slow pace of the storyline” problem that plagued the series until recently, ABC now doesn’t give the show a chance to stay on its own feet now that it’s picking up speed.

On the forums people are ready to use ABC’s feedback forms and call them to ask to not cut Invasion down, but for those who know me better, I always go to the source. And so I emailed the CEO and Vice President of ABC. I kept my email as civilized as possible, although it’s clear that I am disturbed on their decision to put the show on hiatus, again.

I fully agree with ABC that the first episodes were freaking boring, but the producers put their act together and the last 4 episodes are amazingly good and captivating. Hopefully Invasion will finish the season in one piece at least…
