Stickel in da house

September 6, 2006

So Michael Q. Stickel finally made it, and the first impressions are in – he’s definitely gay. Wait, I mean not gay. Damn, first impressions are tricky.

It was cool to meet the man, the myth, and the legend in person. Now it’s time to let the geekery and dieting begin. Welcome to the States, Stickel.


Required App Meme

May 4, 2006

This has been a long time coming. Mike passed on the fun to me a couple weeks ago and I haven’t got around to posting my required apps. Better late then never.

In no particular order:

  • iTunes
  • PearLyrics Widget
  • Photoshop
  • TextMate
  • NetNewsWire
  • MarsEdit
  • Azureus
  • USB Overdrive or SteerMouse (for Mighty Mouse)
  • Quicksilver, Quicksilver, and more Quicksilver

I won’t be passing this meme on again, because I’m sure everyone who I would pass it on to has already taken part in it.

Gifts that rock

April 27, 2006

Big ol’ thanks to Eliza for this awesome present that is one of the best and creative gifts I have ever received. It’s a hand-made movie special concoction of goodies and a classic movie I have been really really wanting to see but haven’t had the chance to, Taxi Driver. All the goodies are held within a movie-style tub of popcorn. And then a get well card, with the additional signatures of two feline friends, Pooks and Picks.

As I have written before, I had sinus surgery this past Thursday which requires me to stay at home and basically do nothing besides work (sitting on my laptop) and watching TV for at least 10 days. This doesn’t sound like much fun, but luckily I have friends like Eilza and Colin who have been very gracious about making my time enjoyable.

They lent me the first season of LOST so I can watch an episode now and then whenever I need to take a rest from working. In the past I have blasted LOST basically because I didn’t get a chance to watch it. From watching a good portion of episodes I have come to realize why the show is such a huge phenenom.

Now I have goodies to go along with my movie/TV show watching. Not only the goodies in the gift basket, but I have also received hand cook meals (from master chef Colin), donuts, coffee, freeze pops (one of my favorite things ever), and probably something else that I am apologetically missing, all from my good friends, Colin and Eliza.

With friends like that you can’t go wrong. I’m truly grateful and hopefully I’ll be able to make it up to you when I’m all healed up.

As Colin mentioned I would be joining him in a WordPress meetup in Philadelphia, this Saturday at 2:00. However, I am not going because I want to meet anyone. I am going because of my bloodlust for all users of WordPress. I hate them all and can’t wait to start some fist fights.

Anyone who knows me probably realizes that this is all the truth. But I look forward to seeing anyone who can make it there. Who knows maybe you’ll end up beating me up. Should be a good time.
