I can't get the Sirius Stiletto 100 to work. I spoke with five customer service people..Here is the breakdown..

1.) First person seemed frazzled and said "I don't know how to fix your problem"
2.) Put me on hold for 10 minutes before even asking my name or Sirius # (hang up)
3.) Put on hold for 5 minutes, came back but didn't know how to fix it
4.) Said he didn't know how to fix it. period.
5.) Spoke with this person for a half hour. This person actually tried to resolve my problem by sending a test signal which I never received. Was told to go outside. Still nothing. I give this person some credit. At least they tried. I explained that the issue was that I would get one signal strength bar, but it wouldn't work in two different states both NJ and NYC and the outer boroughs. suburban and city. Nothing. Fading in and out...so who knows...

The holidays are taking over..So far the weather isn't "face numbing" just yet so the people are out and about in serious shopping mode. I was sucked into picking up a few trinkets..

women: I am a serious perfume-a-holic so I picked up Marc Jacobs Violet and you girly girls out there might want to try the new Lip Plumper from Victoria Secrets..similar to the DuWop Lip Venom but in a larger "Stila" like chrome dispenser. I wouldn't say it was plumping but more like a burning fire tingling sensation. ouch!

men: Sirius Stilleto 100 portable..great for listening to satellite radio while sitting and waiting for the ladies to get out of the clothing/makeup/purse departments..and if you are a sports nut you can set up your games in advance and see the latest score. I listened to it while shopping but it was fading in an out..probably due to the buildings surrounding me..either that or the reflection from ugly sequin bags..

pros and cons on the device.

Saw this movie..hilarious..there wasn't many people in the theatre probably because they were watching that cornball Happy Feet..check out the Tenacious D movie site..great entertainment. :) :D

On the way to Thanksgiving feast I asked my Grandma if she wanted to watch the NIN concert DVD being that last week she was reading a Christmas catalog, sipping hot tea with DIO on the radio. lol!

A day off..ahhh..I did not participate in the slaughter of Black Friday where customers violate the store and mosh to save a few dollars. Learn how to take a train people!!! It isn't rocket science.

There are about three manuals to read...and probably another manual on the way. Phone, camera, among other things. ugh..

I had a chance to go to the Guggenheim this past weekend to see a snippit of Picasso and Goya ..fun eye candy..then walked about fifty blocks back and already the Holiday shoppers are out in full force...they are their own breed. When you are short you get pummeled with bags on each side...its kind of like the running of the bulls..only with humans..

Saw a few movies this past month..Borat, and this past weekend For Your Consideration..

I took the which Dead Rock Star Are You Quiz...turns out I am Richey Edwards..
his real contribution to the Manic Street Preachers was in the words and design"...sounds like me a little...
Coffee...I swear it has been making my heart beat ultra fast..the caffeine is taking control! Look at that coffee man in the cup taunt me! I checked out this little list of questions to see if I was a Coffee Addict..thing is..I only drink a small iced in the morning and it jumbles my nerves..I think it is time to stop.

  • Do you consume more than two cups of coffee? no
    Do you feel fatigued on and off during the day? depends on sleep pattern
    Do you suffer from frequent headaches? when i don't have coffee i get a wicked headache
    Do you have difficulty in going to sleep? not at all zzzzzzzzz..where am i ?
    Do you wake up in the morning feeling dead tired? YES
    Do you suffer from irregular or rapid heartbeats? recently yes..
    Do you often feel dizzy? no
    Do your hands tremor? yes a weee bit

If you have answered five to six of the questions with an 'yes' caffeine is part of your daily system,

The horrible scope said to concentrate on my writing which can be pretty horrid..lets just say I didn't major in English...Hopefully this will keep you entertained for the time being..

I think I get sucked into the "Art Issue" magazine syndrome. This happened before with my past magazine experiences..I saw the shiny package of plastic and jumped at the chance to buy it..why? I do not know. Maybe because it was blue..and it had shiny plastic around it..I am a Sucker with a capital S. Curse you Vanity Fair...

My good deed of the month...year..
1. Purchased popcorn from the Boy Scouts.

Could this salad spray be used as a weapon? Would Italian dressing sting the eyes? I am guessing yes.

I would like to welcome the Q to my gadget family.
It is almost a year of blogging fun. Where did the time go? I have neighbors on the block who already have Christmas lights up..yipes! Let the traffic games begin with Holiday shopping. This year I think I'll try to do more internet and less store shopping.

Another subject..I submitted some Pixel Patterns at k10k about a year ago..Watch a cake explode courtesy of a nike golf ball...ahhh slow motion. Its beautiful. :)

I was hooked on these songs yesterday. Kristoffer Ragnstam
