Geeky Stuff

Hodge Podge Goodiefest

My day started out pretty lame. I burnt the last two pieces of toast in the house and when I tried to scrape off the burnt bits my toast fell into a strainer full of old soggy spaghetti. Then to top it off, there was no jam, peanut butter, or honey. So I made some tea and guess what? No milk. NoooooooOOOOOOOOOOoooooooo. So I was preparing for a super crappy day o’ lameness, but alas, the fates were in my favour! Canada Post brought me some great goodies!

Adam of BeingPrimitive.com sent me Dr. Who Tardis Chockluts all the way from Stirlingshire, Scotland! The box even made strange noises. My package kept going off in the post office. People stared at me. I shrugged.

Then I got a package from Mr. Diggles of Oregon-based uber wallet company, dbclay.

dbclay wallet!

I also received some awesome Penguin Vectorama entries. I still need yours so get your Adobe-on! Deadline is this Sunday, April 13th at midnight (-8 GMT) to get your entries to me.

Then I put on my horns and my Ustream Tee that I got from Startups Schwag. No one wanted to touch my horns. Fail.

Aside: I maaay have been thinking of live streaming some Mostly Lisaness sometime. I’m not sure what I would do. Stare at you while you stare at me. What are you looking at? Oh am I supposed to entertain you? Not the other way around. Right. What do you think? Would you tune into live streamyness?

Then I got ketchup on my white tank top and stubbed by toe. So it all evened out in the end.

PS. if you’d like to send me goodies or a Macbook Air, I probably wouldn’t object!

    Did you say “watch live steamyness”? Oh, no you didn’t…that would be a different kind of live stream.

    Seriously, though cool that you got free stuff. I got some random items laying around that I could send you…don’t know that you’d really want it though.

    No Curly Wurly? No Galaxy Minstrels? No Cadbury Dairy Milk With Caramel? No Thorntons Special Toffee Treacle? Notice how all those words start with capitals as a result of the wonder of trademarks? This sentence is not going to end with a question mark.

    Hm. I could send you a bike racer shirt. Maybe a spaghetti strap. Because you seem very much like a spaghetti strap kind of girl. Then, I’d be just like all the rest of those companies looking to market their products by sending them to an upcoming internet starlet who will in turn endorse them on her blog!! Think of all the immediate orders of t-shirts I’d get!!

    Wait. I’m not a company. I’m just a geek with a camera and a blo. Who likes bicycles. And upside down smilies.

    Lisa,

    Sounds like you need to get to the grocery store more often… that and hire a maid to take care of the dishes!

    Just kidding, see on twitter…

    OH, and yes… would like to watch live streaming of MostlyLisa. From your blog it sounds like you have a really great sense of humor, would like to see it in action with some live streaming.

    Yep, I cut my hair last week, so thought I’d update my avatar too… The photo has been Photoshopped to hell though, so don’t worry about anyone trying to out-sexy you…

    I’d totally win anyway :)

    I think that’s about as good a photo of me as your going to get, I’m afraid… I’m not photogenic at all :)

    Maybe we could ask @strawpoll on Flickr to ask everyone who’s they think is the sexier of the two of us ;)

    @Lisa: I would, but I can get only Curly Wurly in town. :(

    However, you may want to check out this place or this place to get your fix. Much better selections.
