I accidentally let the battery in my PDA discharge and (at least temporarily) lost all of my data. While I have been attempting to backup my data twice a month I’ve had issues with the restoration software in the past so I am not confident that this is going to work. It also doesn’t help that I was tearing apart my home network this past weekend so the computer on which the synchronization resides is currently out of commission. Looks like I’ve got my work cut out for me tonight…
Hurray, Apple Has Not Obsoleted Anything I Own!!!
Apple‘s World Wide Developer Conference keynote speach has occurred and none of the previously released Intel Macs or iPods have been updated yet. Therefore all of my Apple products which have not already been obsoleted are still current (at least for another six months).
Virginia The Enigma
When I started watching Hell’s Kitchen so many weeks ago I never would have guessed that Virginia would make the final two. Virginia certainly started to shine in the recent reward challenges, but c’mon she’s a mess on the line. I never had too much confidence in K-Grease (aka Keith) although I thought he was a decent chef.
At the end of last night’s episode they said that Virginia was a salad chef (a contradiction in terms imho) from California. However, since day one her profile on the Fox website has said that she is from New York. What gives?
This was one of three boxes of fireworks which had been ignited by someone along Lake Michigan up in Chicago. For some reason people gave me funny stares when I got down on my belly in order to take this shot. Eh, what do they know about photography.
Dinner, Why Be Normal?
Two nights ago dinner was bowtie pasta lightly covered with pesto ranch dressing and parmesan cheese. You say ‘disgusting’, I say ‘not bad’ and ‘scarcity of pantry items makes for odd bedfellows’.
Last night on my drive home I had another craving — cheesy breadsticks with marinara. The closest place to my location at the time was Everybody’s Pizza near Emory. After consuming my breadsticks and co-cola, I drove home a happy man.
btw- Does anyone know why the Caribou next to this Everybody’s has closed? Do college kids no longer go to coffee shops?
I wonder what quirky thing I will eat for dinner tonight?
CD Pick Of The Week
I guess CDs are not big “Back To School” items as another sparse week of releases is upon us.
Here’s a list of the CDs dropping today according to Metacritic (and by the way, if anyone out there has a better source, please let me know)
– Comets On Fire : Never heard of them
– Ani DiFranco : I’ve heard nothing from this release
– Dirty Pretty Things : Never heard of them
– Matthew Friedberger : Never heard of him
– Masta Killa : Don’t think that I have ever heard of him
What to do? Throw my hands in the air and admit defeat, that’s all I can do.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
