The Lemonade Movie

I went to a film presentation tonight at the Books & Books in Coral Gables for a film called Lemonade. It is about creative advertising professionals who were laid off in this recession and their innovative approach to making a living. It was amazing! The film has not yet been released but I highly recommend it to anyone who is unemployed, hates their job or is unsure about what to do with their life. Its hope-reviving and totally inspiring. I feel like quitting my job and doing my own thing!..(whatever that may be). The writer of the film, Eric Proulx (who is also featured in the film), was there to present it. You can sign up to be notified when the film comes out at lemonademovie.com and watch the trailer there, too. Be prepared to feel the urge to do something crazy and a little wreckless. You can also check out Eric's blog Pleasefeedtheanimals.com. I would like to close this post with: "Can i say Fuck You?"

The Pet Doorbell

Attention fellow owners of un-potty-trainable-doggies: I found this item and I'm dying to get it. It's a pet doorbell that pets can buzz when they need to go out and do the peepers creepers or other fun stuff. Its exactly what I need for my stubborn dogs (particularly the min pin). It says no training necessary...I believe it! Because I want it to be true.  Buy it for me?

Why I Love the MyTouch!

It’s been a couple of weeks since I got my new Mytouch and I gotta say…I am NOT sad. I thought I might miss having my cool sidekick that opens up like a switch blade, but no. Most of the differences that I have experienced with the Mytouch are good.
  • Love the apps! I didn’t even understand what apps were a few weeks ago. I would always hear about them: “Apps this, apps that” but I just had no interest in finding out what they were. Well, I get it now. I love them!!! AND…so many of them are FREE!!!
  • You can open multiple windows in your web browser (sidekick didn’t let me do this)
There are only a couple of things I have some difficulty with.
  • Typing on the touch screen; I was so used to the QWERTY board that I could type without looking. Now, the touch screen in combination with the automatic spell checker has made me send a couple of texts to my boyfriend that say “Mean!” instead of “Mwa!”
  • The Camera has no flash :(
Despite these cons, I LOVE the Mytouch! It has great battery life, so many entertaining options and lots of free stuff…myfavorite.
