This is well worth the 19 minutes to watch it.

This may be the final straw for me and woot.com

I loved that place.

However, now I have to pay sales tax, since they're amazon.

But this most recent?

Pisses me off.

I bought a refurb latest generation iTouch for AC. It came without the nifty new Apple cable needed to, oh, fucking charge it.

I complained to customer service.

They offered a full refund with return(which damn well better include shipping) or a $10 partial credit. Give me a fucking break, the cable costs about twice that.


Not happy AT ALL.

AC is pretty damn upset. It was her money, but I refuse to let her get screwed by an evil corporation, ya know? She's willing to just eat the extra cost, but I don't think so! That kind of behaviour is what lets them get away with crap like that.

OMG. Laughing in a horrified manner, or horrified in an amused manner at this one.

Puting under a cut because of images... )

Snagged this link from Shakesville: Spectacular displays of the northern lights or aurora borealis in northern Norway.

Some of the photos are spectacular. Some of them are spectacularer. No, really.

I love the Northern Lights. I've never been able to see them in person, and it's one of my life goals. I'll get there at some point.

In the meanwhile, I look at photos like the ones above, and I feeling great longing.

And just fyi. Photo 15 is the photographer. Great long there too..

Anyhow, all lust aside, :-), this is my favourite from the batch. At least is it right this second.

Remember a few years back, it was SHARK ATTACKS?!

Well, the story of this summer is going to be FLESH EATING BACTERIA!

Yeah, I know, they've done it before, but they have a personable, very beautiful young woman fighting the disease right now, and another beautiful slightly older woman doing the same, I saw both stories on CNN and I fully expect more to come as we move towards summer.

Beyond Bunny Yeager’s Lens, a Shy Pinup

Until today I had never heard of Bunny Yeager. Or of Bettie Page, for that matter (remember, I'm a cultural heathen or something like that), but someone sent me the link to this article because, after I'd been discussing Linnea's full name, she happened to read this blog post.

Which contains the following:

Born Linnea Eleanor Yeager, she rechristened herself Bunny after a film character played by Lana Turner

Give or take an "a", I guess dh, me and Mr and Mrs Yeager père and mère had identical tastes in names!

(For those who don't know, Linnea is Linnea Elanor.)

A friend sent along this link today: Child's Own Studio: they make soft toys using children's own drawings. I spent the morning checking out their flickr photostream. OMG that cat! I want that cat. Anyhow.

This is Linnea's drawing of herself and her beloved Piggy. I wonder if I could get the HeartPiggy and the HeartLinnea made?

I wish I were as awesome as the gal who makes these.

I wish.

Cinco de Mayo piñata cookies Seriously, check this out. She has step by step instructions on how to make them. I could so see making rooster or piggie cookies. Linnea would love piggie ones.

At dinner last night while we were waiting for pizza, the teen had both my and dh's phones in front of her. She was texting two phoned.

She does not have a phone, but usually texts with her iTouch, which works when she has access to a wireless network. She really doesn't need a full phone and appears very happy with her current access.

When we're away from free wirless, she borrows one of our phones, and texts from there. Which she did last night.

I've gotten 10 texts this morning from various friends of hers. My phone is beeping non-stop.

That's what it feels like to have a life, eh?

Wow. Forgot to post. After writing back to each little darling -there was only 4 of them- that it was my phone and that AC would contact them later, I went to spin and sculpt and now I'm wiped. But home. Heh.

Even a simple child's kaleidoscope, filled with plastic beads, makes me happy.

Pretty. Always different, and unexpected. Colourful.

She asked me to put this up.... which I told her I would.

Anyhow, she's involved in the Operation DigDeep that was founded by two kids at her school. They are a 501(c)(3).

And she has a fund raising page.

AC got this put together before surgery, but there were corrections to make (spelling.... punctuation) and then she got -ahem- sidetracked. I have to donate but from what I can tell, to get it matched by dh's company he has to make the actual donation, not me, and he's swamped at work.

But yeah. I hate even putting this up, but I said I would, and she's not the kind of kid who would ask random people for donations. Blah.

I got stuck behind the high school school bus this morning. Picking up... high schoolers. You know. Big kids. The bus stopped at every house, so nobody had to walk, and of course stopped traffic in both directions so the little darlings didn't dart out into the street and get smooshed.



But why the fuck do we give these babies who can't walk down to the next driveway to be picked up the fucking CAR keys by the time they're 15? They can't cross a fucking street without having traffic stopped for them, but we put them behind the wheel of a moving vehicle?

This, I do not understand.

There is, I think, a pretty major disconnect here.
