What European City Do You Belong In?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Today is Black Friday- I woke up to see the news report on all the crowds at stores, the traffic reporter reporting on deserted streets and the weatherman bearing cold weather blues news! So since I am one of few people in America who had to work on the day after Thanksgiving, I found myself surfing the web wee bit more than I usually would and voila- came across this cutest sort of questionnaire!

What European City Do You Belong in! Hooray! Take me away from this frigid weather and let me see where I truly truly belong! Here are my results:

You Belong in Amsterdam

A little old fashioned, a little modern - you're the best of both worlds. And so is Amsterdam.
Whether you want to be a squatter graffiti artist or a great novelist, Amsterdam has all that you want in Europe (in one small city).

Hmmmmmm Amsterdam it says.... well I'm not sure about that, although it did hit the nail on the head when it referenced "a little old fashion , a little modern" that is me! Ok- thats my Black Friday contribution to the web. I soon hope to have more time to blog, I have tons of new tips for Macs, awesome quick helpful web references I wish to share- but little time to sit and compose a quality post! But they will come, I promise! In the meantime enjoy the holiday season!

Bloc Party Goes UltraMan!

When is bad good? I recall the visually bad Ultraman invading my TV set as a youngster, admittedly I spent a great deal of time with my "baby sitter" aka the tube! There was UltraMan, Brady Bunch, Mork and Mindy, Lost in Space, Jetsons and much more cheesy television for my viewing pleasure! Yes looking back at these programs they visually were unnatural, strange, cheesy and kinda just ridiculous. Yet what these programs did do were provide an outlet, yes I want to live with Astro and have a button pushing job! Yes I wanted to have a talking robot and super powers to kill the monster invaders! And yes I too want to create worlds of the unknown- better- cooler- leave me with my Legos to create and conquer! The creative juices were flowing, and I was inspired to think outside 'the box' - so with my Lego collection, rocks, leaves, boxes, chairs, you name it, forts were created, backyards converted into lands of the unknown and creatures were being drawn in notebooks with my magical pencil as my weapon of choice!

So what does this all mean? OR why am I taking a trip down memory lane? Well its all due to one of my favorite groups latest single! Oh yeah...Flux is the Bloc Party video that has me skipping down memory lane!

If you're a fan of the group then you'll more than likely dig this latest release. I'm not a 'music expert' nor do I try to pass as one, so to attempt to give this song or video a proper review would be silly. I find this video to be nostalgic; it bought back memories from a work free, bill free and creative time filled period in my life so that in my book is reason enough for me to enjoy this video and recommend it to others!

So if bad old time television brings back happy memories then I suppose thats when bad is good! Thanks to Bloc Party: Flux for a trip down memory lane!

What Kind of Blogger are You?

Ha! Well this site is great- complete with a small badge of honor and all! Whether your a newbie blogger, an expert or somewhat sorta kinda in the middle, take the the 7 question quiz and see what your score is. Needless to say I've posted my badge below- just something fun to post about- plus since it throws in a couple of questions regarding social networks if you don't know about them I highly suggest checking them out. In due time I will blog about my favorite social sites as well, until then check out the quiz-a-roo and enjoy!

Flickr Fun :Duckies go to Vegas

flickr funWell this may not exactly be Technical advice or a how to blog post....but it is helpful for those of you who haven't put your flickr account to much use. Not sure what flickr is? Well in a nutshell is where you can browse, upload and share your pictures online- yes for free- upgrade to pro if you feel you just can't get enough!

Since I myself find Flickr helpful when seeking visual inspiration, a reason to seek a chuckle or actually for my own photo storage (which I will be sharing shortly) I figured I should start highlighting other peoples public accounts which I find funny, interesting, beautiful or whatever the pictures portray.

So for my First Flickr Fun Set I preset to you Digicolleens- Ducky in Vegas! Seriously Cute and humorous. It makes me think.... what can I do with donkey? hhhmmmm we shall see :)

Do You Use Logic or Feelings?

Are you more of a logical, detailed oriented, perhaps a huge FACTS based type of person?

Or would you classify yourself as more of a feeling, imaginative, 'big picture' oriented person?
Well here is a fun way to gauge what you are...its the difference between the right brain vs the left brain. How exactly the theory is proved by a simple test as this - I'm not sure, but it is fun! I know when my friends replied with their answers some were dead set on it not turning the other way and vice versa!

So just a fun type of test to see if you're a Righty or Left Brainiac!

right brain vs left brain

Check out the test and feel free to comment or pass it on!
