I’d rather be…

6 Aug

It’s unbearably hot outside – 106 sweltering degrees to be specific.  I’d rather be:

Here…

Drinking this…

And wearing this… (Who’s that in the picture, you ask? Err, that’s me. Don’t ask questions!)

It paints a cooler picture, don’t you think?

SHARK WEEK

4 Aug

It’s all a hoax. Sharks are the “big teddy bears” of the ocean and they just want to be friends. Don’t you just want to cuddle up with this guy?

How Will You Measure Your Life?

28 Jul

“If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there” – Lewis Carroll

I read an article today – How Will You Measure Your Life by Clayton M. Christensen.  I’ve always been a huge proponent of truly knowing yourself and defining your goals in life (as cheesy as it may be) so thought the article was worth sharing.

Logo Evolution

2 Jul

Here’s an image of how a few company logos have evolved over the years – including Apple, BMW, and Nike.  I’m intrigued by Apple’s logo from 1976.

iPhone Bandwagon

28 Jun

Well, it’s time for this HPBW to trade in my Blackberry for a new iPhone.  Thanks for the warm welcome.  I’m glad to be here and can’t wait to… (anticipatory call drop).

My biggest concern with “investing” in the iPhone has been my tendency to drop my phone.  I’m not clumsy but the phones in my past have been victims of freak, severe injuries.  My current 6-year-old Blackberry has large cracks on the screen, starting at the center, reaching from top to bottom and left to right – not from when I dropped it down 3 flights of cement stairs (resulting in zero scratches) but rather, a random scuffle in my purse between mystery parties.  And, before my Blackberry, there was a hip flip-phone.  Though I dropped it in a glass of water (without spilling any of the contents, might I add), it lived to tell the tale for another 2 years.

That being said, I’ve been looking into sturdy covers for my iPhone.  The Hummer of iPhone cases.   Here’s what I found.


Hmm. Well, I’m not willing to sacrifice style so here’s what I’m thinking.

Much more practical.

Ex-Whatever

25 Jun

First of all, I want to inform you that Jake and Vienna from The Bachelor broke up recently.  I don’t know about you but I’m beginning to lose faith that TV game shows can produce long lasting relationships.  [Rolling eyes]


Whether you’re the “Jake” or the “Vienna” from a past break-up, want to avoid that inevitable and awkward run-in with an ex-whatever?

Meet the anti-Foursquare: Avoidr.  It uses Foursquare to check where that “person” is so you can avoid them because you should always “keep your friends close and your enemies at that bar down the street.”

Quote of the Day

25 Jun

“When I wake up in the morning, I feel just like any other insecure 24-year-old girl. Then I say, ‘Bitch, you’re Lady GaGa, you get up and walk the walk today.’ ”
– Lady Gaga in Rolling Stone
