  • @meimaimaggio: I bet @SantaClaus has a computer built right into the dasher-board. ;-) Merry Christmas / happy holidays everyone! #
  • Wil got me a Brookstone charging station for my geegaws! It’s soo pretty. Satisfies many lusts: gadgets. organization pr0n. and wood things. #
  • (It can now be revealed that I got Wil an Expression Pedal to go with his Line6. He needed it for his pedalboard. & it was a real surprise!) #
  • Wil's pedalboard
  • Wil got me tipsy with a champagne cocktail. We’re going for a nice Xmas dinner later; he won’t say where! Says it’ll be more FUN than fancy. #

  • Kindle books now wish-listable on Amazon! Although, for now the button only appears if you visit the book’s customer reviews page. #
  • Wil is a prolific movie reviewer on his F’book Flixster. Super smart &/or funny. I.e. for Vanilla Sky: “I personally prefer chocolate rain.” #
  • 5 stars for Pootie Tang! “it’s a baddy daddy lamatai tebby chai. That’s a canapan, all the way down. wa-da-tah.” I concur. #

  • Honest Gift Tags
  • We’ve been watching the Bugaloos, a kiddie fave of Wil’s. I remember it vaguely too, but I’m very much a child of H.R. Pufnstuf & Lidsville. #
  • Feeling a little guilty for not confining my anti-spam foaming-at-the-mouth to my own webpage(s). #
  • Listening to a Teresa James cover of DeZurik Sisters’ “Arizona Yodeler”. I’d never dream of even attempting that, mainly ‘cuz I can’t yodel. #
  • Preparing an external drive for Time Machine. I’ve been living way too dangerously waiting for a Leopard-compatible version of SuperDuper. #
  • Finished “The Millionaires” free audiobook from iTunes. Enjoyed it OK but felt like escapist fare compared to my usual diet of cyberpunk SF. #
  • H.R. Pufnstuf (the character) was created for HemisFair ’68 in SAT & was the symbol of the fair. I was there, 4 yrs old. Wonder if I got it? #

  • Reading the internet speculation about Donnie Darko, which we saw last night. I sure do dig the freaky sci-fi flicks. #
  • Ultrasound was no biggie at all. Results later, but if there’s anything majorly wrong, the radiologist deserves an Academy Award for acting. #
  • Today’s mail brought this year’s holiday CD from the Greenbergs: Ann-Marie, Mark, Georgia, August and now Frankie too! Excited to hear it. #
  • Once again, because there’s no candy in the house, I have to settle for Viactiv. #
  • I look at the world with my head cocked to the right because of the astigmatism in my right eye. Trying to get the left one closer to you. #

  • It’s official, we can now use Amazon gift cards to get Kindle books. Direct gifting and wish-listing coming soon, one would think. #
  • Depressed about Xmas. Got one good present for Wil but I’m on such a tight budget, that’s all I could afford. What about everyone else? Ugh. #
  • (Knowing what I know about that word, I shouldn’t be saying I’m “depressed”. I’m not depressed, just disappointed in my poor money skills.) #
  • @BluesBro: I know exactly what you mean. I just want to give more to my loved ones, period. All the time. #
  • Hallelujah, the new version of DEVONthink Pro finally supports Spotlight. http://www.devon-technologi… #
  • Google Operating System: Who Are My Gmail Contacts?
  • Facebook has custom groups now. When and if they come out with privacy filters for those groups, I’ll have no excuse not to let the fans in. #
  • (I mean, you can group your friends now.) See here: http://tinyurl.com/ypeolo #
  • I just practically handed like $600 to a total stranger. If she’ll listen to me and do what I say, she’ll be holding wads of cash!!! #
  • So the deal is, a lady is selling her Kindle on Craigslist for $399!!! She could be doubling her money! I almost shit myself. So I told her. #
  • Last night we watched “Me and You and Everyone We Know”. I like it, it was NICE. And ol’ acquaintance John Perkins (Hawkes) is a fine actor. #

  • @tigerbeat: Thanks Steve! Will do. #
  • MIRANDA JULY » me and you blog
  • Daddy tried the Kindle trick and it worked! 12/31-1/14. So I’ll have a week or two to harrass him. If he doesn’t like it I’m in big trouble! #

  • Netflix has no instant watching for the Mac. Boooo!! http://tinyurl.com/2ahhae #
  • Getting SO confused about the interaction of contacts in Gmail vs. GChat vs. GReader. Harper had no idea what a demanding lil’ PITA I’d be. #
  • Answer: If a person uses one addy for GChat and another addy for GReader, you have to separate them into 2 contacts in Gmail. Then it works. #
  • Do any more of my friends use Google Reader? Share your links? Holla back. I’m “cowgal” at the g to the m to the a-i-l, what’s that spell? #
