No words can express my love of Where The Wild Things Are
Most of those As Seen On TV products are usually not so hot, but the wonderfulness of the ShamWow is really unbelievable! These things really work, and with 2 teenagers, 2 dogs, 1 senile kitty and a man who leaves dishes everywhere(!) I’m always dealing with spills. But look at what I came across at The Smoking Gun (I’m dealing with an addiction to this site atm)

Twitter: It’s the new rage and I myself am pretty addicted. Some users only post random thoughts or goings-ons but others use it kinda like a giant chat-room. Both are useful in my opinion and I guess your enjoyment of the Twitterverse depends on what you personally want from the experience.
This morning I was reading an article entitled “Ego Tweeto, Ergo Sum” in the Globe and Mail, and it brought up some thought-provoking questions about why people tweet such as a desire to feel a part of a community, a technological ADD or the more philosophical theory which I was really struck by – a fear not existing.
By using Twitter to let the world know what we are doing are we really just screaming out at the universe “@Universe Hey I just tied my shoelace! And if I just tied my shoe, then surely I do exist! Because without me that shoelace would still be da” - Whoops gotta rememver that 140 character limit - “cont. @Universe ..ngling there loose and my shoe would serve no purpose and then maybe it might all just be a figment of my imagination.” Or maybe not, maybe I’m just letting my mind having a bit of fun :)

And my latest rant: how do you feel about the new Facebook design and/or Facebook in general? It’s been a few weeks now since the new look was implemented, and I gave myself that long to decide – I really don’t like it. Actually, I’ve pretty much come to the conclusion that Facebook has lost a lot of it’s appeal. Sure it’s great for connecting with other people, but what gets me is that there are people I knew well, knew in passing or might remember slightly that send friend requests. That’s awesome for friends I’ve lost touch with but why on earth would I want to re-connect with people I didn’t get along with even when I knew them? I’ve gotten requests from people I’ve never spoken to, men from other countries who want to learn better English and lately spammers! Oh the spammers! Which is not a surprise considering how filled with flashy ads, pay for use applications and other crappy garbage is on the site. So that’s my rant, if I know you, talk to you, blog/tweet/email/IM with you, am related to you, whatever – sure send me a friend request. But – if you sat three rows over from me in jr. high math for 2 weeks and we never shared a single conversation – ask yourself if being connected on Facebook is anything more than you wanting a ginormous friends list to show off! Kthnxzbai!
