New Wallpaper

It has been almost two years of the standard PC blue background for my desktop at work and I just needed a change. It has been (and still is) my goal to make a fun picture collage, but until then, these wallpapers from Kindred will have to do.The designs are on the girly side, but with a change to a silver color scheme display, I found one that works well for me.

And I'm Back!

European trip. Salt Lake City trip. Final Report deadline. Horrible cold. It has been a very busy 3 weeks! My goal is to post pictures tomorrow. We shall see.

F introduced me to a website by a former Mustang Daily writer today. It's funny, so I thought I would share!

Joining the Dark Side

I joined Facebook back when they required a .edu email address for registration (circa 2005), but I never really used it. The few friends I knew on there I saw on a regular basis, so I didn't really need it to be kept in the loop of their lives. Now with so many people joining (including a ton of old long-lost high school friends), I find myself on it so much more - status updates, wall posts, and chatting (and maybe occasionally throwing water balloons and poking people!).

But with my friends quickly expanding to distant family, long-lost friends, co-workers, and former employees, I need to make sure I can control the information everyone sees. I try to be very careful with what is posted on the internet, but I am so happy with the creation of Friend Lists. I am still going to be careful, but this should help a lot.

Some tips on Facebook privacy and safety can be found here and here.

Movie Review: Shopaholic

A few of us got together on Friday night to see Confessions of a Shopaholic (Ben decided to skip it after not enjoying He's Just Not That Into You). The movie would fit the stereotype of a chick flick (fun and cute), but was enjoyable.

What is burned into my mind is the horrible outfit Rebecca wears to the "Ball" (seen in the picture). The ill-fitting dress. The bedazzled jacket. Seriously bad 80s fashion (and hair!). I get that she was trying to be frugal, but she really had NOTHING else in her closet (hello little black dress?)!

Road Rage

I saw this and I can't lie. Occasionally I have wanted one of these to communicate with those extra special drivers I come across.From Urban Outfitters
