… even more so now that Smart Phones are becoming ubiquitous. For the better… or for the worst?

To a certain extent it has changed WHEN and WHERE we take pictures. The way we interpret the world. The way we caption the things we see. Now every snap shot that comes through my daily life deserves demands a caption of its own. A running commentary, subtitle of some sort.

Got to go?

Need a job?

Bookstores are fun!

"Mom, that's you!" "Awww. You guys..."

Sarah Palin's new movie?

When in doubt, complain about your spouse…

I have nothing.

Tis 3 am 4 am on Sunday morning, I am supposed to have published a post on Saturday to meet the NaBloMoFo objective: Guess. One post every day. I have only three more posts to go. For someone who has not filled out a journal past page 10 since, eh, ever, I am actually quite proud of myself for having come this far. Yet, I have nothing. Is it possible to have Writer’s Block when you are technically not a writer? How bad you ask? So bad that I am humming this in my head …

Now THAT is bad, huh. You believe me now?

This brings me to present you with yet another filler post called…

in a picture is worth a thousand words

I saw this photo essay on Huffington Post, and it resonated with me somehow. (Actually, not surprisingly…)

The kid’s name is Alex.  A-L-E-X.

What I learned from using a Neti pot: Waterboarding IS torture!

October 14, 2009

in a picture is worth a thousand words

For the new diagnosis of my hacking cough, the good doctor not only put me on steroid and on codeine, he also recommended the use of Neti pot. Up till this day, I have never even heard of such a thing. He showed me a sample.

How adorable! It’s a mini teapot!

It was adorable until he demonstrated how to use it…

“They’re Made Out of Meat” by Terry Bisson – One of the best short stories found on the Interweb

September 7, 2009 random

Here is how the story begins…
“They’re made out of meat.”
“Meat. They’re made out of meat.”
“There’s no doubt about it. We picked up several from different parts of the planet, took them aboard our recon vessels, and probed them all the way through. They’re completely meat.”

Maybe, just maybe, The People of Walmart has something to teach us?

August 30, 2009 a picture is worth a thousand words

Scene 1:
There is this new website, People of Walmart, that’s gaining the buzz.  (Heck, even The Bloggess mentioned them as “shit-I-didn’t-write-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome” for this week…)
(Note: also wrote about it on August 31, 2009, the day after this post was originally published.)
Here is one of the most excellent specimen, in all its glory:

There is so much theorizing and critique one can do based on this one image, I don’t even know where to start…

“You know, if only I could just make a decent cup of coffee, I could relax!”

August 25, 2009 marketing at work

If you really want to contextualize the social and cultural circumstances in which this Folgers commercial was made, then we can all go back to school and read upon all the feminist histories and theories.

This is why I love the grouchy old man Stewart…

August 22, 2009 imho is just a polite way to say I know you don't give a hoot what I think but I'm going to say it anyway

You can debate the merits of HCR or whether Mr. Stewart did “OWN” Betsy McCaughey on this segment (she may be crazy but she has guts, you have to give her that!) What Jon Stewart said at 2:00 is the reason why I love and respect him.

Is this what Easter Bunny looks like?

August 5, 2009 a picture is worth a thousand words

I don’t know why this picture so startled me that I could not stop laughing for 10 minutes.
Oh my god! I completely lost my bearings so that my co-worker needed to tell me to “Get a hold of yourself, lady!”
This goes to prove that NO, you do not want to see Easter Bunny come true, [...]
