So I found out today Google is killing Reader. I’ve been using Reader every day for a LONG time, I can’t even remember. It’s pretty much the best way I know of to browser through a lot of news sources in one place. People are saying RSS is a dying consumer technology and this just proves it. But how else do you pull multiple sources into one place? I ain’t going to visit 100 websites every morning when I’m sipping my coffee. I’m sure I’ll find another service to replace Reader; it just sucks that a good product is getting killed because there aren’t enough smart people to use it. ;-)
Chinese Lunar New Year everbody! I’m very glad that NYC got spared the worse of Nemo. Really wasn’t that bad at all. I was worried it would ruin New Year’s Eve, that we’d all get snowed in.
I got up in the morning, or actually noon, I should say, looked out and the sun was beaming on unblemished snow. That was when Bruno Mar’s “Marry You” came into my head and has been stuck there all damn day. “It’s a beautiful night (in my head it was “day”)… We’re looking for something dumb to do… Hey baby, I think I wanna marry youuu.” It was mainly because of the first line, but I didn’t even get the lyrics right in my head.
The Mercedes-Benz CLA has really caught my eye, after seeing it in the Superbowl commercial. It’s a beautiful car and quite affordable for a Mercedes-Benz. I’ve been researching a new car and was considering a Honda Accord or a crossover SUV but I think I might wait until the fall for the CLA.
One of my resolutions is to read more books and I’m probably going to pick up a Nexus 7 and read e-books. I was looking at bestseller lists at Amazon and Google Play and there’s so many books in the same vein as 50 Shades of Grey. The lists are filled with these romance novels with cheesy covers. I remember always seeing an entire rack of these at the library when I was a kid and no one borrowed these books. I’m a bit surprised these type of books are so popular with women now.
I let sleep be my hair stylist most days. Okay, sometimes I splash on some water and fix it if it’s really crazy. But like with anything, just rock your style with confidence and people don’t question it.
