iChat > Adium (get that growling duck outta my dock. finally. peace.)

MB > MB Pro (what? yeah you heard it. More durable, runs cooler, and works better. so. ha!)

Firefox > Safari (now, i’m a bit hesitant on this one… i go back and forth between the two and i hate indecision. so i’d love to hear your opinion the great browser debate.)

Wired mouse > Wireless mouse (just crap crappy crapperson. can’t take the delay, the horrid reception, the carpal tunnel pain…. no matter what bluetooth monstrosity i try, my old Microsoft Mouse (the shame the horror i know) works the most ace. can i say that? the most ace? huh. whatever.



Canon > Nikon (i’ve actually pissed you off now, haven’t i? sorry, but there’s no turning back for me. i’m Canond up the ying yang. if i woulda known about the lack of a PC jack on the Canon flashes i might have gone with Nikon.. but probably not. just cuz i like the Canon logo better.)


Tea > Coffee

Money > Starbucks

Electronics > Jewelery

Coding > Poetry

Why? Because i said so. If you’d like to have a jaunty argument over any of the following, i’m feeling extra sassy today so bring it!

FYI. I expect loads of thought provoking comments for that bikini picture.

    The logo? You’re basing your love of a camera based on it’s logo? There’s definitely a fine line between madness and genius, go buy yourself a Nikon, it’ll make you feel better.

    I refuse to comment on yet another bikini picture (there seems to be an infinite number of them) but I will say that your shadow has a lovely shape!

    @chris — window & mac. that’s kinda like comparing a can of tomato soup to say, a giraffe. i’m sure you find a way to compare them, but really, why waste your time when you could be @tweeting.

    bikini is a strange word. i guess i’m just so used to other people saying how hot i look in a bikini.. that i’m kind of used to hearing the word.

    oh cute, you brought up msn. i used msn… in 1999.

    and is happiness better than money?

    oh and a pop comparison. that’s so 1995. how bout Coke = Pepsi = Sprite = 7up in their ability to rot your teeth.

    @range — that’s not much of an argument. i win.

    @yong — hizzah hizzah. now we can be friends. of course it’s me, if i put pictures of other people up on my blog i get an inbox full of complaint emails.

    @Dermot — there’s a fine art to deciphering sarcasm. perhaps i should loan you my sarcasm for dummies hardcover. it’s a lovely read.

    @Mel — don’t haaaaaaateeeee me!! you know i need your love. it’s like oxygen to my wilting soul. but seriously, if you calculate your weekly Starbucks expenses for an entire year it would equal a whole lot of cigarettes.

    Smoking cigarettes > Drinking coffee. get a real vice and then we can via .mac @ iChat.

    It’s also fun to deliberately ignore any implied sarcasm but you didn’t really give me much to work with – more outrageously brash declarations required!

    @Chris- for the most part, i agree, but it really does depend on WHAT you’re smoking or WHAT coffee you’re drinking.
    i.e. espresso> superduper”light” cigarettes. hemp> folgers instant coffee crystals, which barely counts as coffee.

    n/o to folgers drinkers here.

    @thinman — acoustic is ace. agreed. though i prefer consonance in musical terms, in poetic terms i guess it would depend on the context. and melted cheese is way more booyah than rice.

    @Dermot — indeed. i’m losing my edge. i will try harder next time.

    @John Lampard — agreed!

    @Tom — you mean PES7 > *

    @Chris — don’t encourage @Tom. he’s really quite fragile… mentally. and yes, for the record smoking is ridiculous. while everyone was experimenting with cigs in high school i was suffering from asthsmar. and i was in band. and i was in the “gifted” program. so basically, i wasn’t cool enough to smoke.

    @Mel — hahaha you’re all @ing each other… it really touches me. i won’t stick my nose in this argument… carry on.

    @McPaige – oh…what the D stand for?
    @Lisa – I didnt try my first and last cigarette til i was 19. I was in the geek crowd at school but was also a drummer in a rock band so i semi-cool too. I had Arsmar too. Sucks a lot!

    I’m guessing McPaige means Lisa Danielle Bettany (LDB). Which, of course, is impossible. As anyone who reads this blog knows: anyone who can use HTML and posts pictures of themselves in a bikini is ultimately better than ourselves. Amen.

    @bloodhound — #0099ff is my fav colour which is more on the blue side, so i guess we should question our pending friendship status. but, since you are with Canon, WP, making lists and spelling, i think i can say “ok” for now. well, at least until you say something really embarrassing, then i’ll pretend like i don’t know you. :razz:

    PS what’s Sirius? Sirius Black you mean? he’s well good, but dead. sniff.

    @mcpaige — omg. i can’t believe you just said that.

    @Chris – team asssthhhhmarrrrr! go puff wheeze go! asthmar + figure skating + zamboni fumes at ice rink = awesome.

    @Tom — are you patronizing me? yee of lowly boobs comments.

    @mcpaige – ooh tricky. u iz uber smart.
