Hump Day Hook-Ups

The doc has put me on a caffeine-free diet. Add that to the herbal medicine which is supposed to help me relax, and…


I have never been more tired in my life.

I’m so tempted to pass out, but I can’t ignore my Wednesday tradition, can I?

  1. WordPress Stays Hip with the Times, Adds Gears and Looks to OAuth, ReadWriteWeb. WordPress is implementing Google Gears! This will be revolutionary…or a great disaster. Nonetheless, I can’t wait to try it out.
  2. Twitter Boycott: Declare your independence from Twitter on July 4, Conversational Media Marketing. Twitter has been a major PITA as of late, and I’ve found myself using Plurk a lot more. Yesterday, I even replaced the Twitter widget on this blog with a Plurk badge – the Twitter widget was slowing my load time due to Twitter’s problems. I will surely be joining in on this boycott come Friday.
  3. Macgyver Gets Lazy, xkcd. xkcd does it again! Click over for this hilarious one-frame comic strip.
  4. Guitar Hero III getting free ‘Top Gun Anthem’ DLC, Joystiq. J nearly busted his nuts when he read this. Unfortunately, we have Guitar Hero on the Wii, NOT XBox. Doh!
  5. Touchscreen BlackBerry Thunder Is BlackBerry 9500, Has Higher Res Screen Than iPhone, Gizmodo. I have a whole slew of reasons for not getting the iPhone (will write a post about it later), but the BB Thunder looks mighty tempting…
  6. Shape-shifting, organ-probing chembots coming soon, Engadget. T-1000! T-1000!!!!!
  7. Adobe Makes Flash Searchable – The Holy Grail of Website Usability? ReadWriteWeb. Searchable Flash is definitely a major step in website development. However, the more I think about it, many websites have been steering away from Flash lately. Will this increase the presence of Flash on the web? I’m not so sure.
  8. Olympic Mascots Causing Disaster? Neatorama. I’m not very superstitious, but I do get creeped out easily…and this article was pretty damning.
  9. Awww…, Jezebel. I’ve been such a sap lately that I couldn’t help but tear up reading these stories. These animals are amazing.
  10. Top 10 Things Science Cannot Explain, haha.nu. As the queen of useless trivia, I loved reading through every item on this list…you may too.

There was one more item that deserves extra special attention. I almost choked on my water when I first saw it:

Stormtrooper High Heels Are Key to All Your Sex Fantasies, Gizmodo.

How perfectly…ME!!!
