want this soooo bad

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

I need another t-shirt like another hole in the head, but this I want so bad it’s almost driven me to distraction. The opossum is darling but this is just pure awesome. Unfortunately, it may not make it to the final 3 by Thursday¬† night since it just got entered recently. I can always hope that either the guest editor or the staff pick is this one. :) Even on such a terrible shirt color for me, I must have this.

Either that or I have stumbled across the name and logo of my future restaurant..

Music of the universe

I have next to no idea what the Higgs Boson is. Physics isn’t my thing. I pretty well get why its a big deal. But I love the way it sounds.

…thanks to Domenico Vicinanza, who immediately set to sonifying the ATLAS data on the new particle.

He joked on the NPR interview that next up was the Higgs Boson ringtone. I want one. It would make a cheery little ring and since I get next to no calls, it wouldn’t disturb people all that much. At least not as much as the Megadeath that has been going on with the workmen in our new building…





Hm…found while searching for Victorian Classics Tea Party magazine…

Wonder how much call there is for this magazine with the clientele of this company?

I’m not a hand model

but I do read the blog of one

I don’t ever get my nails did and I don’t do them myself since I usually suck at it. But this polish was far too cool to not try. Layla Hologram Effect. I was wanting the pink one but they were out of all the colors except for the black, green, gold, green and this one – Ocean Rush. I could have waited but I no patience. When I have decided to do something either 1) expensive, 2) foolish or 3) both, I am all about instant gratification.

Now that I’ve seen what the Magneffect Polish does, it’s next on the list to try.

Such a sucker for shiny.

You can see the holo effect better on a vid.

Why not in adult sizes? Sheesh. Missing out on some big bucks here, folks.

$12 at Woot

I wish it were black instead of brown, but I still had to order one.

Way cool

If I only had legs less like well stuffed sausages I’d wear this stuff in a heartbeat. Some of their swimsuits could almost entice me to go out in public in them, even.

I have always loved leggings and long shirts. Ever since back when I thought I was gonna be a theater type for the rest of my life. You know, before I got a real job. :)

So torn.

On one hand, my abiding magpie love of all things shiny, glowy and sparkly makes me desperately want to go see this someday.

On the other hand, I really, seriously have no interest in giving China any tourism dollars. Those people do ugly things to critters in the name of ancient medicine (not to mention the ugly things they do to dissidents).

Until they own us lock, stock and barrel, I will have to be satisfied with seeing it in pictures only. Once they own us, then there is no more point in resistance so then maybe I’ll go. Flights will probably be cheaper then, too.

For the media savviest, internet-ing-est, with it-est, hippest, smartest group of folks on the planet, they sure are tone deaf. I mean, yeah, they’ve proved it so many times over I sometimes have wondered if someone in that group isn’t secretly working against the President (DVDs that don’t play in the UK, anyone?).

I get that the place is actually Del Ray Pizza. But letting the President eat at a place called DRP? Really? From a bunch of old fogeys I’d get this flub. From this young group of media hounds? I don’t. If I know about an internet meme, why don’t they? I’m pretty clueless a lot of times when it comes to this stuff.

Click for explanation of "Derp" if you need one. I'm all about the education up in here.

The annual light festival in Ghent, Belgium.

Look around on Flickr for Lichtfestival Gent or Ghent. Lots of very cool pictures.


Finally, my kind of Valentine’s Day card

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8… hey. Pluto is too a planet!

Although just a raptor…
