Been up all night. The minute I lay my head down all of the bitterness and crap I've had to swallow that day and every day stretching back to the day of my birth comes bubbling up like vomit. And make no mistake about it, I'm bitter. And it's not all stuff I'm making up, either.

It's a strange thing to lie in bed and be eaten alive from the inside out. Seems a bit unfair...but I guess I'm used to it. I am SO tired right now, and I know my whole day will be ruined tomorrow from lack of sleep b...

My brother has decided to move back to Colorado. He left this morning at about 7 am. He lived with me for about 6 months. I'm very sad! I really, really enjoyed the chance to get to know him. He's a smart, funny dude, and as he says, "dead sexy" to boot.

Good luck little brother. I'm sure you'll be fine! But I'm still sad.

This is my first trip to NY. I find NY to be sticky. That's my official review.

We got in, got a cab, went to the hotel. We weren't allowed to check in because we were too early, but they did agree to hold our luggage. Which meant I had to dig through my luggage in the lobby to pull out the giveaways I brought for our meeting that afternoon. That was exciting for all involved. I managed not to send underwear or other embarassing items skittering across the floor where I would be required to d...

These allergies are killing me. I'm on a rather lethal combination of drugs in order to hold them at bay, a combination which should have me sleeping 'round the clock but only serves to put me to "sleep" from 8 AM until about 2 in the afternoon and wake me up again at 4 AM. Hope fully I don't say anything too stupid while I'm at work "asleep"...but then again I'd probably never notice so what would I have to be embarassed about?

In any event, a good friend of mine sent me this article. I don'...

I've been tagged, dang it. Now I'm supposed to write about 5 embarrassing things from my childhood. The first question that immediately leaps to mind, of course, is "when exactly does childhood end"?

The when is irrelevant, though, because I'm going to dig up 5 embarrassing things but they certainly won't be the most embarrassing things. Just causing a mild blush, not a desire to pack up and leave the state from shame.

1) One of my earliest memories was from kindergarten (I think). They ...

With E3 going on this week, we simply couldn't pass up the opportunity to revisit the "booth babes" issue and discuss their apparel (or the lack thereof). We also discovered that people in the UK are now allowed to listen to their CDs on their iPods according to the RIAA. Let's hope North America isn't far behind! Also a spam war involving Blue Security and Russian hackers brings down several websites.

Some are saying the porn industry will decide whether or not Blu-Ray or HD-DVD becomes the...

Apple goes mano y mano with both France and the RIAA and comes out on top. Also there are rumors that Windows Vista will be delayed again, but what does that really mean for consumers? Skype plans to give us the ability to have a 100 person conference call (which is an instant headache for Kristin) and a high school hacker is caught and "punished".

In gaming news the DS Lite will come out in June, and Oblivion is getting re-rated to an M for Mature! Also gold farmers buy Allakhazam and Joel ...

This weekend we went crazy.

My husband has long ago decided that he likes small convertible cars. He'd like a BMW Z4, but that's a little out of our price range at the moment. So last year when Saturn and Pontiac announced they were both coming out with affordable small convertibles, we got very excited.

We've waited for months, and still no cars to test drive. The Hubby decided he likes the Saturn body style a little better, so he was prety sure he wanted one of those. Upon calling Satu...
