I, Pad

In accordance with all the hype, earlier today I sat at my desk, anxiously clutching my empty wallet in anticipation of the revealing of the great and powerful Apple tablet. Feverishly updating a Twitter keyword search (which received no less than 200 new tweets every 5 seconds) and cursing whenever I lost audio from the livestream, I developed a somewhat comical system of refreshing no less than three simultaneous liveblogs of the event while retweeting ridiculous...

Reading Roundup

Interesting reads I've come across on the web: Though not really surprised, I was FLOORED by the H&M Clothes Trashing report. Seriously?

Anybody Home?

I've been such a bad blogger lately. Between work and writing and tending to my sick kitty and being plain ol' tired, I just haven't felt like it. I'm thinking of cutting back to two posts per week instead of my usual three, just to give myself some breathing room. *Sigh*. Why is life so haaaaard? </unnecessary drama> On the plus side, I had a small picture in an ad for Lucky Style Spotter in the September...
