February 2009

There is NO scary mascots, no company team building events, no overblown space stuffed with TABLES & BARS. Just a good old-fashioned penny (albeit nickel) arcade the way you remember it from your childhood, IF you are old enough. FREE classic games in the back of the room completes this little piece of heaven. Is that Pac-Man I see? Yes, I do suck at the game, that’s why FREE is just perfect for me!

Humbleville, Interweb – Local woman awoken from her solipsistic stupor by designer’s sincere, genuine interest in feedback of his creation. Submom received a wake-up call when designer Joey Roth replied directly to her random vent of his creation, Sorapot. When asked to reflect more carefully, Submom admitted that she DID enjoy watching the Chinese flower tea bloom in front of her eyes inside the ingeniously designed Sorapot, when she had time to do so. “The last time I remember when I was able to sit down and relax was the day after Christmas. I have been on my feet ever since.” Her defense for her unfair criticism? “I only have one hand now because of my Twitter thumb, and I was getting frustrated last night because you cannot disassemble this teapot with only one hand!” Submom vowed to refrain from being a spoiled bitch, and to stop and smell, eh, drink the flowers. She compared Mr. Roth’s reaction to her complaints to the likes carried out by “Lands’ End who has my undying loyalty as a customer.” After a pause, Submom said quietly, “Honestly? I didn’t think that an artist living in NYC would care about the feelings of a suburban mom. We must seem like philistines…”

was a good idea for a great Xmas present… is a f** idiot and can come & take it!

My husband’s attempt to surprise me at Xmas was a success if he only meant to surprise me… This “teapot” was an overpriced piece of, eh, paperweight. If you have no intention of washing it, then do NOT get it for me!

Yeah. Now can you honestly tell me that it looks just as stylish sitting on my kitchen counter next to my high tech rice cooker, as the air-brushed picture you have shown?

Seriously? And you did at least 2 reviews of this last year? The review in May was not enough for you, and you had to give it another plug again towards year end, AND on the 2008 Wish List?

My husband, who, despite my well-known wish of getting an IPod, decided that Sorapot was just as good, if not better. It has been two months now since I am the owner of the most expensive glass teapot in the whole god damn world. Why am I pissed every time I have to gingerly take this thing apart and wash it and then assemble it together? Well, you be the judge! Sorapot or IPod??!!

Power of Twitter got to @RainnWilson whose followers surpassed 100,000 today…

February 27, 2009 mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Tweet Who says that size does not matter? When I first started following Rainn Wilson (of The Office Dwight the Beet Farmer & B&B Operator fame) on Twitter, he only had a meagerly 60,000+ followers. And that was like, last week. Here is a Tweet that he just sent out, in celebration of the 100K […]

Celebrities on Twitter: @Stephenfry has the most followers because he rocks!

February 27, 2009 mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Tweet I cannot believe that in my previous post of celebrities that tweet I forgot about Demi Moore. Sorry Mrs. Kutcher. And of course, her lovely, always good to look at, but probably illegal for me to fantasize about because of his young age, Mr. Kutcher. Mr. Combs. How could I have forgotten Mr. Diddy? […]

There has been NO way for us common denizens to converse with celebrities. That is, until Twitter opened the door…

February 26, 2009 mark my word: twitter will doom us all

Tweet This is Twitter’s stated mission (or designed usage) on its homepage: “Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?”Here is my observation: most of the people are using Twitter, not to keep their […]

Who gives a damn? Certainly not me. Best GIF file, ever!

Tweet Click on the file if you don’t see what’s so funny. I laughed so hard my lunch came out. TMI? Well, click on the file and see what I say to that…

Sushi for you, Obama-san!

February 24, 2009 a picture is worth a thousand words

Tweet The chef did try very hard to make it non-offensive. A friendly gesture really. Look at the USA flag and the similes! I am actually using this to test POSTEROUS My first reaction was: No! Not another Web 2.0 blogging/tweeting site… How do they expect us to keep up? Very soon, only SAHMs, celebrities, […]

In praise of Kome Kome Shu: Sake that is easy to love and drink

February 24, 2009 random

Tweet If you have never tried Sake, or if you tried but didn’t think that Sake is for you. Give it a try again. But this time, try the Kome Kome Shu. Literally, Rice Rice Wine/Booze. The alcohol content is much lower than the common varieties out there, at only 7%. And it is SWEET, […]

“Coffee makes grown-ups look better in the morning”

February 24, 2009 no manual for parenting

Tweet My 6-year-old proclaimed all of the sudden last night when he watched me taking off my face (make-up). I burst out laughing and asked him to elaborate. “You look funky in the morning when you don’t have your coffee. Then when you come home from work, you look pretty. And then you look funky […]
