This is my cat Calvin. I took out my phone to get a new picture of him to show my little niece, and he got real excited about my phone and grabbed it. Now my cat has a selfie. He also once stood up and gave me an unsolicited, completely deliberate slap-five for ripping on my girlfriend. She has been jealous of that moment ever since.

Should I go for the Xperia Z3 or the Z3 Compact? Will the Z3 feel too big? Will I miss that extra gb if I went for the Z3 Compact? Descisions descisions.

I was on craigslist for no good reason today and came across this gem of a post.

 

http://stlouis.craigslist.org/cto/5037065595.html

 

It isn't so much the vehicle or anything.. but they took pictures of their phone pictures to use. The person even acknowledged it but it's still funny to me. Classic craigslist.

I love "Craigslist" by "Weird" Al Yankovic (ccap's post made me think of it).  It is the perfect choice of a parody in the style of The Doors (I feel like Morrison would have appreciated Al taking the stuffing out of a commercial entity like Craigslist).

It's a wonderful thing to see a sunset in northern Alberta in the late spring. The sun dips below the horizon, the colours go from orange to purple to deep blue, and finally... the deep blue stops getting darker, shuffles across the horizon to the right, and promptly starts getting brighter again. What, where did the stars go?

So I was excited to the Lumia 640 in Canada. It makes perfect sense from the just the advantages for business's productivity needs - including all of MS Office, LTE, an A/C as well as a b/g/n wi-fi NIC.  And then Microsoft takes off the ad "Coming Soon" and eliminates all traces of the said phone. 

 

And infuriates me as I was going get it, for myself and my partners. Damn you, RIM, you're finished. Aging platform and the using QNX for the subcontracting business instead of focusing on your own devices. I have a hunch that ever since Alan Mullally became a director or whatever... that he forced MS to only think of profitability and choose not to send an awesome phone to Canada, because obviously we were one of the few firms looking to have a cloud platform as a infrastructure and mobility solutions provider. Damn you Microsoft.

Some people chose to put fences in places not in their best interests.

Try and tell them that, tho.

 

That's somewhat along the lines of my thoughts right now ... hurt & angry cover it, too.

 Me too....  It has actually brought an old laptop back to being usable again because it is faster than Window 7.

I find it fascinating how two people who grew up in the same household, with the same kinds of influences around them can develop to have such drastically different ways of doing things.How on earth did my siblings and I (one in particular) manage to take such vastly different lessons from the way we were raised?  Or did the problems come from something after moving away from home?

Yeah, me and my older brother are very opposite personalities. He's the laid-back charmer, while I'm the wrought iron fist of the family. We sometimes don't even understand how that even happened. We both went to the same schools, sure he's 5 years older than me, but still.

My brother and I are waaaayy different too, but it was pretty obvious growing up. He was popular in high school and gave my parents hell, I was book smart and dorky, my parents barely had to try.

I get personality differences completely, those are definitely to be expected, but I would think things like parenting are largely learned from our parents,and my sister definitely did not learn her parenting there, or anywhere else from our childhood based on her way of doing things.  Even Al Bundy was a better example than whatever she has chosen to follow.

My brother's a parent, and he's also way different than my parents were and how I intend to be. He and his wife are parents because that's what you're "supposed to do" after marriage. I WANT to be a dad someday, I'm great with kids and I know when to lay down the law.

Yeah, she wanted kids, but I don't think she ever wanted the responsibility that comes with it, and so she has 4 kids and 3 pets and isn't equipped to take care of any one of them.  Maybe it would bother me less if I didn't feel it reflects poorly on how our parents raised her and I feel like she should not be allowed to tarnish their reputation because they actually did a danged good job.  Oh, well, done venting on that for the moment, I just had to listen to some junk from her this morning "parenting" my nieces that got under my skin a bit, because unfortunately, for financial reasons, our families are sharing a house right now (her and her 4 kids with me, my wife, and my son).

Ohhhhh boy that sounds like a real party.

 

I totally understand you though. Plenty of awful, horrible, never-should-have-had-kids sort of parents in my extended family. The worst part is that they're always the first ones to open their mouth and say something really hypocritical! It's something about the generations following the baby boomers that just got out of whack, I see more bad parenting than good parenting.

Why oh Why do morons who are so afraid to drive get licenses. Driving 35 on a freeway stated as 65 is dangerous to everyone. Turning your hazard lights on does not help and you being bunched up against the steering wheel is not helping either. Get off the Fricking Highway.
