A Consuming Experience

Thoughts on my experiences as a consumer of products, services, people (well maybe not that last one...), from reviews to raves, rants and random thoughts - concentrating on technology, gadgets, software, product usability, consumer issues, customer service. Including some introductory guides and tips on various subjects (like blogging!) which stumped me until I figured them out. And the occasional ever so slightly naughty observation.


Back Dorm Boys



Two Chinese students are receiving international fame as millions of people around the world watch them podcast from their cluttered bedroom. They are called the Back Dormitory Boys, and they specialize in lip-syncing and dancing to Backstreet Boys songs.

Baghdad Burning

The Beginning...
So this is the beginning for me, I guess. I never thought I'd start my own weblog... All I could think, every time I wanted to start one was "but who will read it?" I guess I've got nothing to lose... but I'm warning you- expect a lot of complaining and ranting. I looked for a 'rantlog' but this is the best Google came up with.

A little bit about myself: I'm female, Iraqi and 24. I survived the war. That's all you need to know. It's all that matters these days anyway.

It was a long and twisting sentence...

An opening sentence containing a burrito, an angel and a shovel was judged appalling enough to win the annual Bulwer-Lytton literary parody prize on Tuesday.

Retired mechanical designer Jim Guigli of California was proclaimed winner of the contest, which challenges entrants to submit their worst opening sentence of an imaginary novel.

Guigli's winning entry read: "Detective Bart Lasiter was in his office studying the light from his one small window falling on his super burrito when the door swung open to reveal a woman whose body said you've had your last burrito for a while, whose face said angels did exist, and whose eyes said she could make you dig your own grave and lick the shovel clean.";_ylt=Au1EXxbNTKm2b68GiBAYC.wDW7oF;_ylu=X3oDMTBhZDhxNDFzBHNlYwNtZW5ld3M- - Online Dictionary, Encyclopedia and much more

The Luckiest One




Suburban Apron Company - "...culinary musings from my suburban kitchen..."

Crustless Broccoli-Cheddar Quiches
(recipe courtesy Martha Stewart Living)

Butter, for ramekins
Coarse salt
1 package (10 ounces) frozen broccoli florets
(or use fresh broccoli from your garden, as I did)
6 large eggs
1/2 cup half-and-half (or use a little heavy cream, as I did)
Ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (3 ounces)

Preheat oven to 350°. Butter four 8-ounce ramekins (or a 9-inch pie dish); set aside. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli; cook 1 minute. Drain well; transfer to a cutting board, and blot dry with paper towels. Chop coarsely.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in broccoli and cheese.

Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet. Ladle broccoli mixture into ramekins, dividing evenly. Bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and a mixed-green salad, if desired. (I served with toasted homemade thyme-flavored bread.) Serves 4.

Personal Democracy Forum

Technology and the Internet are changing democracy in America. We envision this site as one hub for the conversation already underway between political practitioners and technologists, as well as anyone invigorated by the potential of all this to open up the process and engage more people in all the things that we can and must do together as citizens.

Over the coming weeks and months, we are going to experiment with various ways of nurturing and expanding this conversation, ranging from blogging to investigative journalism, interviews, profiles and guest columns. The focus is going to be on new tools, processes, uses and trends--not on scoring partisan political points. We value your input and ideas.


Trip Planner - Yahoo! Travel

Yahoo! brought its Trip Planner out of a 9 month beta period today and it’s an interesting example of cool Web 2.0 apps aimed for popular adoption. Users can drag and drop Flickr photos from a pop-up of their Flickr sets to illustrate travel destinations. Maps are put to a commercial use beyond illustrating the geography of search results. Blogging via Yahoo! 360 takes destination narrative to the next level, beyond short reviews.



World Cup Finals - a photoset on Flickr

The kids were playing with Lego. It was the day after the world cup finals, and suddenly I realized that the competing teams on the Lego lawn was the French (blue, Les Bleus...why were they in white at the finals?) and the Italian (in red) I decided to recreate those fateful minutes when Zinedine Zidane blew his reputation...

Paste Magazine

Paste Magazine is one of the fastest growing independently published entertainment magazines in the country, recently named "Magazine of the Year" at the 2006 PLUG Independent Music Awards. We pride ourselves in being the premier magazine for people who still enjoy discovering new music, prize substance and songcraft over fads and manufactured attitude, and appreciate quality music in whatever genre it might inhabit--indie rock, Triple-A, Americana, folk, blues, jazz, etc. What other magazine would dare run features on singer/songwriter Patty Griffin and rapper Gift of Gab (from Blackalicious) in the same issue?

At a better time - All the best moves of Zidane - 2005


YouTube - Zidane's moment of insanity

There were suggestions last night that Zidane had been provoked in a bitter exchange. Materazzi, who was caught on camera twisting Zidane's nipple as he walked past him, refused to talk to the press after the game, and the French players would not reveal exactly what had angered Zidane.

But today, Rabah Zidane claimed the Italy defender chose "the most vicious insult he could muster" to rile Zidane, who was born in a Marseille suburb to Algerian immigrants.

Rabah, speaking from his home in Aguemoune, Algeria, said: "We have heard Zinedine has said he was called a terrorist. My cousin is not a violent man but he was provoked by a truly savage insult. With tensions running so high at the end of the match, he couldn't control his rage."

Zidane's agent Alain Migliacco added: "Zizou was provoked. He will reveal what Materazzi said to him in one or two days' time when he is calmer."

Zidane was back in Paris this afternoon meeting President Jacques Chirac, who hailed him as a " virtuoso, a genius of world football," and said that "France loves and admires," the player despite his dismissal adding: "he is a man of heart, commitment, conviction".

The controversy over his head-butt rumbled on when Chelsea's William Gallas accused Materazzi of provoking Zidane and said he wanted to "smash the face" of the Italy centre-half.

Sources in France also claimed that Materazzi insulted Zidane's mother.

Chelsea defender Gallas said: "When I see this, I want to smash his face.


one red paperclip

We've got a house.

Pictures here.

It's "official." I'm going to trade one movie role for one house with the town of Kipling Saskatchewan. But nothing's official until Dom and I go to Kipling and shake hands with the Mayor. Dom and I will be in Kipling on Wednesday July 12th to shake hands with the mayor of Kipling, Pat Jackson, and Bert Roach, Kipling's community development officer...and probably a whole bunch of other people as well. Then it'll be official - without the quotation marks. (Funny enough, I actually held my hands over my head and did those "quotation mark" thingy's when I typed out the word "official" the first time. Please don't ask me how I managed to type the word "official" with my hands over my head. Unlike trading one red paperclip for a house, I still have no idea how I did it.) Anyhow, this is gonna be so much fun. We're going to seal the deal on July 12th - exactly one year to the day I put a picture of one red paperclip on this site.

one red paperclip.
one house.
one year.
