Enough about my most weak pia mater. I wanted to talk about gmail and how awesome it is. Well, everyone knows that (proof). I tried out the new Priority Inbox feature, and I am a fan so far. Also, if you are a gmail user, you should be sure to go through the Labs every once in a while... I just added one that vastly expands your emoticon options. They remind me of kidpix stamps (man, I miss kidpix. I loved making certain images specifically because they looked cool when you hit the dynamite button).
Speaking of awesome design software, I had to give up and initiate my 30-day trial of Pages today. I was helping mom create an invitation for dad's pre-launch party and Microsoft Word was giving me palpitations. My former boss (current mentor/friend) opened my eyes to the wonders of Pages and, as is becoming a sad refrain these days, I cannot afford my own copy.

And the robot in the photo is named R2. Right. I don't have anything against Star Wars (well, I quite like it) but this was an overload for me. (I actually really like Ewoks. I have probably seen the made-for-tv Ewok movie more times than the original series. I have a stuffed one somewhere in my parents' house... I should dig that little guy out).
Speaking of Star Wars nerds, I recently saw When Harry Met Sally for the first time. But when I see Carrie Fisher I think of her with a giant machine gun (a la Blues Brothers) rather than as Princess Bunhead. I really enjoyed WHMS. It was clever and Billy Crystal's genius made up for the inevitably predictable ending. What's-her-name wasn't bad, either. Meg Ryan! Right.
Ugh it's 2 again. I am currently on what I imagine to be the sleeping schedule of an adventurous vampire (more Anne Rice explode-in-the-sun than Stephanie Meyer can't-risk-anyone-see-me-glitter!).
Yes, I just used glitter as a verb.
I have more to say, but since I have lunch plans tomorrow, I should attempt sleep.

I used to be able to stamp my current music with foxytunes, but I can't figure it out so I'll just write it.
Currently listening to The Weepies-I Was Made For Sunny Days (pre-release from their new CD. see previous entry for my laments on this subject).
