Title needed

Friday, February 9 2007

I could say that I have been holding Cap in suspense with this post but I have no clue what I am going to write about yet.

Rip off aka inspiration from Sam are these 1 (ok since I now live here heh) and 2 highbrow and the end bit has not yet clicked.

Earlier in the week, I had to buy a suit for (hopeful) coming interviews. In short, where is a Dorothy Perkins when I need one? Certainly not here in the US :( I have office clothes … back in the UK. I left them there since the plan was to go home over Xmas.

I finally got some proper highlights done and it turned much better then last time. No true colours are showing ;-)

MH has a natural knack for locking after sick people. Much better then me. He knows when to do “Are you alright, mate?” and leave someone alone to have some vulnerable me time. A friend came by and turned puking-sick-can’t-move and had to stay the night. It was bad but we could take advantage having been UK tax payers and call up the health service to ask for advise. With Public service etc there is a website to consult as well: nhsdirect.co.uk. In short, after vomiting let the stomach rest an hour before trying to drink some water – I know from personal experience.

MH has also totally grossed me out *YUCK* so he is not all goody goody – need to get that in so nothing goes to his head.

So we have lost an reality celeb today, Anna Nicole Smith. You must who she is … she made it on BBC (!!) front page – unbelievable … otherwise enjoy the Google search images. Are you surprised that it happened … not that it was today but in general? Poor kid. Is her daughter going to get the $bn? Must be a lot of vultures around. Poor kid.

I’ve been watching some old Beverly Hills 90210 episodes. The clothes are the highlight to watch. OMG. Society has improved.

You didn’t hear this from me … OK?

Get TV for free via the internet;

TVU player

I picked the stable version v2.3.0

There are quite a lot of different channels, mainly US like Fox, CBS, SciFi, Fashion, Bloomberg, Comedy Central and *yay* BBC News 24 (which was on a loop when I checked it out) and many more

Once you have, give a couple of minutes and then the stream flows well.

Search and rescue…

…digital style.

This is for real.  A Bay area computer scientist Jim Gray has gone missing on his boat.

Somehow NASA has scanned a large area, and via Amazon Mechanical Turk Service – your help is needed to find him.

You Are 50% Boyish and 50% Girlish
You are pretty evenly split down the middle – a total eunuch.
Okay, kidding about the eunuch part. But you do get along with both sexes.
You reject traditional gender roles. However, you don’t actively fight them.
You’re just you. You don’t try to be what people expect you to be.
How Boyish or Girlish Are You?

*sigh*

Feel free to make fun of this … I need it.
