The whole kit & kaboddle

If you're anything like me, by the time the holidays roll around there's way too much pressure to answer the question "What do you want for Christmas/Hanukkha/Etc. Now, I used to be a believer of a gift is a gift and whatever someone wants to get me is wonderful. However, lately I've come to the conclusion that I have too much stuff. And so, in an attempt to de-clutter my life, I've signed up for Kaboodle, a wish list site that you can send to family and friends so you can actually get what you want or need. Because, at this point, yeah that journal is nice but what I really need is a set of towels. It's kind of like a registry for life.

:-) turns 25

Talk about growing up in the digital age. I just ran across an article on CNN that the :-) (literally, the smiley face) turns 25 today. That makes me just slightly older than the emoticom. 6 months and 3 days to be exact ; )

  • 25 years ago professor Scott E. Fahlman first used the computer "smiley face"
  • :-) posted to an online e-bulletin board at 11:44 a.m. on September 19, 1982

Read the whole article here.

Ohh and my favorite is when you use emoticoms on Google chat and it rotates the face! Love it! The hearts are super cute! <3 (if only Blogger would take the cue)

What I want now!

I must confess that I'm a little bit of a tech geek. Albeit, much, much less so than my boyfriend, the Gadget god. While I don't need to run around town with the latest iPhone (I can just steal his when I need to check Facebook), I must have the latest products that merge two of my favorite things: technology and sparkle.

Swarovski partners with Phillips to bring you a line of crystallized accessories in the form of USB devices and headphones. Check out more details here at Active-Crystals. I can't pick just one! These are going to be so hot for the holidays! I've already seen them featured in People magazine. So hottt!

VMA's aka Video Music Anarchy

Ohh boyyy did you see the 2007 VMA's? I've heard that this is the first and last year that MTV will be in Vegas... it's probably for the best. After jumping in on the show halfway through I couldn't help but be totally confused by the chaos that ensued. "Kayne... why are you roaming through the halls of the Palms?" "Is that...Fall Out Boy and 300 fans packed in a hotel room with Gym Class Heros??" "What is going onnnn? I thought this was an award show!"

Anyway, bottom-line, the VMA's were a sight to be seen this year. Things opened up with a much anticipated performance by every one's favorite mess, Britney Spears. Enter Britney: wearing a sparkly bra and underwear set (there's a good picture of it at BBC News) and little more (ok and a giant sparkling cuff, which may or may not be this piece that I tried on at work a few weeks ago thinking hmm now where can I wear this? No where outside of LA, NYC, or Vegas unfortunately-pass). Britney and her ensemble sashayed around the stage to her new song "Gimme some more" while Brit Brit made a half-hearted attempt to lip sync the words. Granted, Britney is a single working mom with 2 kids, but you'd think she would have taken more time to actually learn the words of her new song, as she was visibly off a good deal of the time. Ouchhh... overall, it was an ambitious move for her "comeback", and proved to be a lackluster appearance. Poor thing, I'm rooting for her, I really am, but she makes it so hard!

In other news, a night out in Vegas isn't complete without a fist fight between two rockers and Kidd Rock stepped up to the plate and slugged Tommy Lee during the Alicia Keys performance.
Ohh Pam, which one do you choose? How about neither, you're better off with a box of chocolates and Footballers Wives than those degenerates!
