  • Rainbows End by Vernor Vinge (The whole book, for free online in one bigass text file)
  • DAMMIT! My iPhone’s volume rocker just lost its clickum. It thinks I’m pushing the up button and won’t stop. ARGH #
  • HA! I got my geeky dad all intrigued about the Kindle. I *knew* he’d be into it. :-) #
  • Met up with the wreck-a-stow lady. Status upgraded to “probably sometime”! FU if it seems an odd choice for a webcoder. I’d love it there. #
  • I love mystery packages even if they’re not for me. Wil got one and it’s driving me mad even though it’s prolly just boring ol’ boy stuff. #
  • For somebody who doesn’t even own a car anymore, I sure am indignant over that jalopy parked in our spot for the last 9 days. #
  • LOL!! In the Kindle video demo of the dictionary feature he looks up the word “profligate”: recklessly extravagant or wasteful of resources. #
  • The Amazon Kindle
  • My iPhone is now useless for podcasts, unless I want my ears blown out by the faulty rocker switch. Got an appt with the genius tomorrow. #
  • Trying to figure out how to get a PDF ebook onto my non-jailbrunked iPhone. Dying for a Kindle but it ain’t gonna happen anytime soon. Meh. #
  • You can put PDF booklets into iTunes. But they don’t sync to the iPhone! BAH!!! #
  • Sony just released a PSP firmware upgrade with no changes whatsoever other than the version number. How do you spell “fa-cock-ta”? #

  • I’m full of Jodie’s #
  • Regarding parking-spot territorialism: In Chicago I’d cook a pot of oatmeal and pour it on the fucker’s freezing windshield. Or dream of it. #
  • I thought SpyMac was a Mac rumors site?! Looks like MySpace shook it up in their barf bag. (I’m so grumpy I must sound like @hotdogsladies) #
  • Remembering the last guy who called me Edie. I couldn’t go to the funeral, obviously. #
  • Bedbat?Bedbat? Is that meant to be kept under the bed, or over?
  • Why is it that whenever I have a plane-crash dream, I’m always in the cockpit getting the worst possible view? #
  • If there’s no food or drink allowed on BART, how are you supposed to shop for groceries outside your home turf? I’m overthinking this, yes. #
  • I want a Kindle! Even though it’s way overpriced, and buglier than a Mattel electronic-football game from 1977… http://tinyurl.com/taxq7 #
  • 452 characters per minute, with 87 correct words and no wrong words. Hot tamale! http://speedtest.10-fast-fi… #
  • The sock has been found. No thanks to you people! #
  • I soo wanna insinuate myself onto someone’s roundtable tech podcast, so I can bitch about Macs/gadgets/webstuff. Role model: @ambermacarthur #

  • EMI to Cut RIAA Funding; Death of RIAA Near? (from Mashable’s lips to God’s ears!)
  • Ugh, I need a job. #
  • Whatever happened to making Stacks on the desktop? Wasn’t that part of the first Leopard demo? Steve’s a big fat liar but I love him anyway. #
  • Last time I submitted a resume to a record store, the gal said “you know, they’re probably gonna throw it right in the trash!” Such is life. #
  • OMG THEY SAID “MAYBE”!! I’m thrilled!! #
  • MISSING: One of my very favorite socks. Last seen on my foot. Please help!! #

The lonely mate

  • Dammit it happened again! I thought I was awake, thought I was walking around. I opened my eyes and got really confused ‘cuz I was sideways. #

  • Wil and I had dinner at Barney’s; first time for me. Tastewise it was not unlike a ButterBurger from Culver’s. Or in other words… MMMMMM!! #
  • Is Twitter Down?
  • Blogger / Blogspot Help – Report a spam blog
  • Sleep paralysis! Nature’s way of saying “Heyyy what’s the rush? You love naps! You may think you’re getting up but check it out… pillow!” #
  • Our local franchise of Louisiana Fried Chicken is NO JOKE. They got the greens, dirty rice, hot-water cornbread and 7-Up Cake… ohh my god. #
  • Feeling guilty that I gave the stinkeye to the doorbell-ringer who, as it turned out, was collecting food donations for the beach-cleaners. #
  • It’s circus night again! Yay! http://love.zinzanni.org/ #
  • We had a very nice Thanksgiving with Karl & Sally & her family of… dancers? There was dance talk, and actual dancing. Not by us tho! Whew. #
  • Finished the 3rd season of Dr Who. Love Martha Jones and the current Dr., but the unrequited love thing drives me bananas. He has to be gay. #

Cozy pink Thanksgiving

  • Pink skyFireplace
  • Our neighbor is throwing a tantrum again. Verbal abuse. I feel very sad for his poor family. :-( #

  • Gmail: Report Abuse
  • So thankful I’m in a loving healthy relationship, thankful for the health and safety of my family, and for the antispam power of Akismet. #
  • Watched Dr Who, one of those countdown-to-doom episodes, I got scared and now I can’t sleep! OK I’m just an insomniac, not the Dr.’s fault. #
  • Just Craigslisted my old Treo 650 and a whole heapin’ helpin’ of accessories. Yay!! I suck at getting rid of stuff so I’m pleased w/ myself. #
  • I gave our favorite waitress one of my CDs. Totally embarrassing, but I just wanted to. But WHY? Oh Edith, the world is not your trade show. #
  • Wow. Lori Drew is some kinda sociopathic cunt. Looks like she’s got a blog now. http://meganhaditcoming.blo… #
  • Hi, I’m full of pizza! Actually, I just wanted to get the c-word off the top of my Twitter. That story is making me ill. Pizza was good tho. #
  • How can I get Grab to save a screenshot as jpg instead of tiff? Or, what should I use instead? Grab pretty much raised me from a pup… #
  • Spent a couple hours breakin’ my back yanking weeds. I’m not even supposed to have to, dammit! #
  • Maybe a little too excited that @jennatar got an iPhone? It’s just… I love them so much, and… I can’t help it. SQUEEEE!!! #
  • Attempting to gather certain family secrets, for a certain secret something. So far Daddy’s the only one who came through but OOH IT’S GOOD! #
  • Ooh. I think I just accidentally sent a MySpace invite, of all things, to a total stranger. Wrong address. Wrong button. So wrong.
  • Ohhhh if I could only be as snarky as I really wanna be to some of my commenters. I keep having to bite my tongue. #
  • Relieved that everyone in my weirdo family seems to be speaking to each other again. Burying the hatchet with the handle sticking up? Heh. #
  • @meimaimaggio: Thanks!! But shhh, nobody knows I’m a musician around here. I’m working my way up the D-list of macgeekwebelebrity! #
