Squarespace V5 Review

Being a blogger (albeit a relatively unknown one) in NYC with a wide web of friends and acquaintances has its perks. A few weeks ago, I was asked to be a beta tester for version 5 of Squarespace‘s web publishing platform. I remembered reading about Squarespace, but had never checked it out. It was exactly […]

Hump Day Hook-Ups

Sorry I have been MIA lately. Summer is the busiest time of year for me at work, and since I’ve been concentrating on my health and trying to get better, I’ve been doing my best to prioritize and actually *gasp* not try to tackle everything all at once. My face is getting a lot better, and my body […]

The Dark Knight Review

(Disclaimer: I have tried my best to not include any spoilers for those who have not seen the movie. Enjoy!) I’m a bit late on this review, but hey, better late than never, right? I was one of the fortunate few who were able to procure a ticket to an IMAX showing of The Dark […]

Hump Day Hook-Ups

The past 7 days was a slow week for news. Maybe I’m getting too jaded and selective? Or perhaps it’s because the damn iPhone 3G seemed to take over my Google reader. Whatever the reason, here they are, my favorite links for the week. (And sorry that iPhone-related news take three of the spots…hey, like I said, nothing else […]

Was the iPhone 3G Launch a Success?

I know I’ve been doing some Apple-bashing over the past couple of months, but let’s get one thing straight: I love Apple. I’m a total Machead who’s always trying to persuade her friends to switch to the Mac platform, and we only have Macs at home…three of them, in fact (my MacBook Pro, J’s black MacBook, and an iMac […]

My Internal Clock

  I have an uncanny sense of time. I usually know what time it is without looking at a clock, and I’m almost always within 5 minutes of accuracy, to boot. I can also set an internal “alarm” to wake me up whenever I wish. For the past year or so, I’ve always woken up […]

My Parents’ Old Mexican Workers

This past weekend, Neatorama posted an article called U.S. Economy Sucks, So Illegal Immigrants Are Goin’ Home! I was immediately reminded of Mario, a worker at my parents’ old dry cleaners. A Mexican immigrant, Mario worked the heavy press machines. He worked at the store for almost the entire 15 years of my parents’ tenure. Slowly but […]

Bah! Humbug! Such is the life of a corporate slave. I will say no more. Read on and enjoy! Hyundai readies Elantra LPI Hybrid for 2009 Korean launch, Engadget. As much Korean pride I may have, I’m not the biggest fan of my mother country’s automobiles. However, Hyundai’s announcement of the first hybrid to be “powered by […]

Feeling Unattractive

I think every girl has those days when she feels Jabba-esque. You know what I’m talking about. When all your outfits make you look fat. When no amount of concealer will hide the dark circles under your eyes. When your hair refuses to acquiesce to endless styling and products. Lately I’ve been having more of these days, mainly […]
