Gong Haggis Fat Boy!

It is in the Chinese lunar calendar, the year of the Dog. For those of Asian persuasion, happy new year to all, and may you prosper in both spirit, body and mind... not to mention in benjamins!

Lomo arrigato, Mr. Roboto

Ahh Lomography. Sure you aren't digital. Sure you were formerly made in Russia. Sure you don't cost a million rubbles. Sure you take strangely appealing photos. But oh how sexy you are!

This 'fad' photography called lomography uses technology from the former Union of Soviet Socialists Republic which was bought out by an Austrian group. Now they come with wacky manuals, strange instructions, and attractive packaging. Oversaturated shots are it's hallmark, and there is a definite playfulness and fun factor involved with shooting from the hip. Here's a quick quote from the manual.
"The fisheye View the way GOLDFISH and LOMOGRAPHERS see and live life"
Gotta love it. Thanks Brother o mine for the nifty birthday gift! Now if I could only remember how to load a legacy film camera...

Make like a Katamari

Ok, so some of you may get this, but our daughter seems to want to do the locomotion by unconventional means. There's crawling, there's cruising, and there's of course walking. Well, Arwen seems to want to roll all over the place. Mind you, sideways locomotion works with many a crustacean, but in a small human? At any rate, this seems fairly normal, and we expect her to start scooting around soon enough using more.. hmmm.. forward means. In the meantime.

Roll baby roll!

Use the Force

When these suckers first came out, they were definitely one of the geek elite must haves of the year. The pricing reflected that at about 150 US smackeroonies. So for something that has limited practicality (but infinite amounts of blast from the past coolosity) I thought I'd pass. Now when Sears offered them up at 89 bux CDN.. well the Jedi in me came out and so did my Amex. I tell you, firing that sucker up I was giggling like a little school girl. Bzzzzzeooop... Brrrvvvoom... Vooom... Brrrzzzap! Hee hee hee hee. Yup.. that's exactly how it sounded like.

If you have the pre-requisite amount of Mediclorians, pick one up you MUST. No questions.

B B b b Birthday!

Today is my Birthday! My very happy birthday! Thanks everyone for the well wishes!

My honey knows I love gadgets, so she got me this kewl little toy! Right out of the box it's useable as a laser tag tank battle game... but I'd have to convince an office mate to get one too. lol. It's a nifty little remote control tank , and you can even hook it up to a webcam too which opens up all sorts of upskirt possibilities. Errr.. ok.. I guess that's slightly pervy.

End of our vacation.

The company I work for is quite progressive in terms of benefits, and one of the nice perks is that it shuts down for the Christmas break. But as with everything, all good things come to an end. We'll be heading back from vacation in a couple of days, so big sigh from us.

The best thing, is that our family and friends got to meet Arwen, we got to pig out on food as is the christmas norm, and we get a bit of a breather. Special thanks go to my folks for letting us stay at hotel momnpop. =>

And of course.. Happy New Year everyone! May 2006 be the best yet!
