So we got the new “Bejeweled” board game, based on the computer and cellphone game we all know and love. We needed something new for board game night, after the harrowing “Monopoly” incident where a giant cat wiped out an entire row of new hotels and houses.

A few weeks ago, I was on the points auction site LISTIA and won the audiobook, “The Art of War”, and at 4000 points, paid dearly for it. I assumed that since the “auction” page used the Amazon picture for it, it would include whatever packaging usually comes when you buy it on Amazon; and […]
I got one of these speakers from Tanga.com, a “deal” site, for $9.99 – I don’t know how that is such a special deal since an Amazon vendor also has them for $9.99, but I see they sold out at Tanga, so who am I to say. It looks like a miniature Amplifier, the knobs all work, and it actually sounds pretty good – I use it to play podcasts and my Pandora channels, from my cellphone, when I am at my warehouse job.

It seems to be sturdy, and as long as I don’t wear out the cord it should last a long time. The speaker wires are always the weak point on speakers and headphones, am I right?
I got one of these wallets for my cellphone, so I wouldn’t have to carry two things. It’s nice and all, the phone fits perfectly. It’s kind of thick so I can’t carry it in my hip pocket, but that was expected. A few things I didn’t account for; It looks weird to talk to […]
We visited a local mexican-style eatery Saturday afternoon – asked for a large glass of beer, they brought me something in a huge chalice of some sort, fit for a Spanish Emporer and holding about a gallon of beer. I had to drink it with both hands. Did she seriously think that I was going […]
