this mini-aquarium is pretty cool…too bad it looks like the one with peach is sold out!

look what iit did with their mccormick tribune grant! look at that el tube! meanwhile northwestern lives up to its reputation of white-bread boringness with this poured concrete tomb.

cool, but i don’t have a desktop, only a laptop suckers!

wil says it best and with a lot more quotations than i would have included, plus he capitalizes letters.

i see no fundamental difference between discriminating based on sexuality and discriminating based on race except that it’s rather dubiously less offensive to openly attack sexuality rather than color. discrimination is discrimination. to say or support the idea that it is wrong or constitutionally unlawful to marry WHO YOU WANT TO is completely confounding and quite frankly disgusting. am i supposed to only marry a korean guy? or a methodist? a christian? everybody better wake the fuck up and realize that this country is spinning out of control.

it’s like watching my life flash before my eyes.

…if you don’t like to hear about girly stuff. basically, i’m having my period and a uti which means double the pleasure double the fun for the area between my navel and pubis. i want to go home so bad and go to bed. but i can’t. i’m stuck at work doing a project i loathe and everyone is leaving at the end of the week and it will be just me and ben all alone all day in this huge cavernous room. eric’s going to see a client this afternoon so i can’t even talk to him, plus he was a jerk and ate my yogurt from the refrigerator so i don’t want to talk to him right now anyway until he apologizes or gets me some more yogurt. also i forgot to set the vcr to tape enterprise tonight and eric STILL hasn’t found me a divx of the last episode of sex in the city. muon’s going away dinner is tonight which i am actually looking forward to, but i still have three and half hours until the end of the work day, and i’ll have to hurry home and up to evanston when really i just want to go home NOW and curl up with my blue’s clues blanket and stuffed armadillo (named paul) and nap while ds9 rumbles in the background and hope that i can avoid the various needs to enter the bathroom. what a shitty day.

thanks to riana we can all express our hostility and throw rocks at boys!

check out the cute mp3 player from hyundai. it is tiny and elegant, but no display and only 128mb. but it does have a mic and an elegant design that gives apple a run for their money.

after reading this article posted on gizmodo, i started thinking about the oled. i remember reading about the oled, toled, and foled a few years back on the udc site and i couldn’t wait until the day when i could own a foled. what would i do with it? i don’t know. who cares? (i think i got the link from popular science. shut up, i subscribe).

but then i found this old article about e-paper and its efficiency, but despite developer e ink’s nifty diagrams i can’t get past the fact that e-paper is only…black & white. ew.

*please excuse this crappy excuse for a title

i am maybe in love with this steriogram video directed by michel gondry (who else?). my favorite part is the giant hand.

behold the brilliance that is donet’s branding! i am so hungry just looking at it.

the roku soundbridge looks pretty cool…you know my cousin chris instituted a plan whereby every year he gets to buy himself one tech toy. that sounds like a good idea to me. i guess for me, last year’s gadget was my refurbished ipod (chris’s was a tiVo, so i have some catching up to do)…what will be next?

thanks to wil wheaton’s blog for the link to the second version of the flowchart of geek hierarchy. i think i fall around the third or fourth level. ok. fourth.

ever wondered what it would be like if physical theories were women? ah, now you don’t have to wonder.

did each of these quotes come from the mouth of president bush or emperor palpatine? the only way i can tell is because i’ve seen the movies many times. the ONLY WAY. oh…except maybe that the emperor is a bit more, how shall i say….eloquent?
