Ornaments to the Bar

May 27, 2008


In an effort to free myself from my internet addiction and do some work so that they don’t fire me, I have been leaving my laptop behind for two days. Within minutes of my arrival at work today I was gasping for google chat, Facebook, and general fucking about. I asked Mystic Mo if I […]

Black Heels to Tractor Wheels…for reals

May 3, 2008


On her blog, this woman has related the touching tale of how her and her husband, referred to as Marlboro Man, got together. She describes it as “Green Acres meets Harlequin Romance in my crazy, rip-roarin’ real-life tale of true love. Have a cold shower handy!”I won’t say ah-a! because I never even contemplated for […]

Youtube can suck it

February 22, 2008


I have to confess something: I don’t care for Youtube. I think I have watched all of four Youtube videos in my life – friends send them to me all the time and I always say I’m going to watch them but I don’t. I just pretend to. I ESPECIALLY won’t watch any referencing politics […]

Youtube collaborates to hide human rights abuses

Readers may be aware that Youtube suspended the account of Egyptian video blogger Wael Abbas, a ban which featured on Reuters and Fox News. These news outlets have released statements saying that Youtube has restored his account. The truth is that although they have restored his account, they have removed all of the videos showing […]

A brilliantly useful website

Yamli. It’s a search engine that lets you enter transliterated Arabic (internet transliterations with all the numbers) which it converts into Arabic script. But it also lets you search in google and provides an editor for longer pieces. It’s pimp! Thanks to Cairene for the tip….great for English-only keyboards and a host of other uses.

Sunday Single No. 2

Sometimes, I think the internet spreads more ignorance and hate than enlightenment and awareness.

I am the Walrus (Pup)

May 2, 2007


My entire family is on MSN Messenger now. This includes both my parents, my grandfather, cousin, and uncle. This obviously grossly limits what I can put as my personal message and display picture. My father, especially, is easily alarmed and almost any personal message causes him to believe that a major disaster has taken place. […]

Had a bit of a panic attack today. I needed an outlet, so I called the computer store where my laptop has been supposedly being fixed for a month and a half. I wanted to entreat them to retrieve my notes from the first half of the semester. Predictably, this was not possible.Me: (gentle charm) […]

I haven’t written in some time because my laptop has died and I had to rush it, clutched frantically to my bosom, to a Large Computer Store, thus wasting the pearls of humour I have concocted while sitting in class. Nothing noteworthy to report that is not of a libellous or embarassing nature. Except, stop […]
