Installed? October 25, 2012

WTF? I just saw “… waiting to see what is installed for me…” and I’m sure there’s no new built-in wardrobes, nor a new pool, nor a new installation of a software application on the computer. It’s “in store”…

Hey, you Fatty-PinkShirt-Baldy-Whitey-Man-Walking-Down-Adelaide-St-At-201204241340. There was no one to your left, there was PLENTY of space, you could have stepped one step over, I know you saw me, yet you decided to shoulder slam me, knock my lunch to the ground, and keep walking without even a backwards glance. I hope you fall down a hole.

Goodbye Google Reader November 17, 2011

Posted by faelix in ocity.

I belatedly discovered Google Reader about 2 years ago, and liked it so much that I blogged about it.

Then Google decided to “revamp” it and they made it all unreadable. I started to unsubscribe from things and was all ready to just stop bothering with reading. Then I discovered that netvibes does a reader view (instead of its usual widget view).

I logged in to netvibes (with my account that I’d started there back in 2007!) and imported my subscriptions that I’d exported from Google Reader. I’ve already subscribed to another blog!

Goodbye Google Reader. I’ll come back when you un-suckify your site.

A real house tour August 18, 2011

A friend linked this house tour on fb. I love it.

It made me think of how annoyed I get when I see real estate photos of houses…

I’m guilty of watching renovation shows… the reveals mostly – where the you get to see the shock and horror surpise and delight of the renovatees. I’m still waiting for the day that they rip out someone’s hills hoist from their backyard, (yes, they “replaced it with a fold down clothes line attached to a wall in a ‘utility area'”) and when they do the reveal, you can see how pissed off the home owner is that they got rid of it. I’d be mighty pissed off if someone did that to my clothes line! I wouldn’t give a shit that there’s now a deck and an outdoor balinese-style day bed. Where the hell am I meant to hang my clothes to dry in the sun now?!

Slippery Slide!!! August 12, 2011

I just saw this on the news on tv… according to my google search, it’s not new news, but then again, we are in Australia, things take a while to get to us…

How COOL is this? A slippery slide to get to the train platform! Woot!

I can forsee a problem if it gets hot, but I figure that it doesn’t get as hot in Holland as it does in our Sunshine State. But what happens when it’s cold?

Either way, it’s way cool. Like the slippery slide they have in the Singapore airport! Makes me want to go on a cool slippery slide tour around the world. :D

From the Facebook post:

Rare Gem Rush Weekend Event, June 10 – 12!
It’s Rare Gem Rush this weekend, June 10 – 12! Starting at 10 AM PDT June 10 till 10 PM PDT June 12, share in our mother lode of gems and harvest extra rare gems all weekend long!

The only thing I wonder is whether the cost of harvesting the gems will be reduced? I blew a lot of coins playing with the Phoenix Prism last weekend.

It was The Rise of the Phoenix! Event on Facebook the other day.

A test run of the new rare gem, I guess.

I managed to get the prisms to appear without much effort. I am still unclear as to what triggers their appearance. I’m glad I had a LOT of coins to purchase the prism though. At 75,000 coins a pop, it’s not cheap!

I can’t say I’m particularly keen on it yet. It detonates gems that I was going to match, so it currently annoys me.

It did, however, let me get my best score ever! 918,500!!! Woohoo!

I had to take screenshots from the video replay since the Phoenix Prism happens so quickly, and with so many animations, there was no chance I could do screencaps quickly enough. And there is no number 8 screen cap – I didn’t notice until I’d already uploaded them to wordPress that I’d failed at counting. Oh well.

It’s cute that the reborn phoenix (which looks a lot like an owl, if you ask me!) winks at you.

Hey, Ms-Indian-Grey-Mazda6-Euro-Plate-QKW10Z, just because you have too much money to spend on a wanky Euro style personalised plate, and because you can barely see over the steering wheel, you are NOT entitled to just keep pulling out of the carpark driveway into traffic without giving way.

Oh no… it’s gonna be… April 9, 2011

all of 26C in Chicaco on Sunday.

To quote my t-shirt: “WTF”?!?!?!

It’s only going to be a pathetic 26C and -that- makes it newsworthy? My aircon is set to 26C!
