I used to have some clever words here. ["iphwin" on the IMs.] Also see www.kathrynscraps.com (gratuitous plug for wife's papercrafting website)
<sigh> I cannot figure out why the thumbnails on Amazon no longer switch for me. It's been awhile and I suspect some upgrade or another. General Googling hasn't helped. Anyone else experience this issue?
I'm so confused. Or maybe the sign is confused. ;-)

Once I saw a store with a huge "GRAND OPENING" sign. Underneath it, in smaller letters, another sign read "Closed." I still wish I'd taken a pic. - YvonneM
Turns out there were two sets of doors and they wanted people to use the other set. Oh, well. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Got some hairs cut yesterday. So I took a selfie. And realized...man, it was bright outside. <squint>

My Sundays at work would go so much better if I didn't have both of my problem children working at the same time. I'm not sure if it's good that one is remote and the other local. It provides differing challenges. Sadly for them, I'm on the backend of my two 16 hours shifts so my patience and caring are always dwindling by now.
Problem children need to be frightened into good behavior at times. Let them have wee taste of side eye. - Janet from FFHound!

The one thing that's going to take some getting used to on my Note 4. I understand that Samsung has been a hold out in getting away from a hardware menu button but I keep hitting it anyway. Maybe after I get reminded a few 100 more times. :P

Well, that was interesting. I was trying to download an app to my old phone but the work wireless wasn't connecting to the Play Store. So instead I used the new phone as a hotspot and downloaded that way. Fun!
And now I'm backing up the old phone to the SD cards so I can put it in the new phone. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
How terribly exciting this must be for all of you. :P - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Sadly, my ringtones didn't copy over. Guess I may yet need to use the Kies software to backup/restore settings and files on my Note 4. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Seen as part of a product description: Theft Alerts: Get an email with a photo and location when someone messes with your device. (Also known as a "Theftie"). Yes...you read it correctly...a Theftie. <sigh>

Patek Philippe World Time Moon Watch | Uncrate
"Created in celebration of the company's 175th anniversary, the Patek Philippe World Time Moon Watch blends old and new by pairing the company's world time mechanism that first appeared in the 1930s with an all-new central moon-phase display. The time-zone mechanism displays the time of day in all 24 zones at a glance, with the name of prominent destinations in each time zone on the outside and hours on the inside. In the center is a moon phase display made up of two thin, superposed glass disks, which combine to show a large, detailed rendering of the moon in its current phase. Limited to just 1300 examples, it measures 39.8 mm and comes with a hand-stitched alligator strap." - (Curtis) Alan Jackson from Bookmarklet

But, Eddie...what's that in the upperleft of the screen? Did you do that interview in Google Hangout? lol - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
I especially like that they had to update the article after DropBox informed them that they actually do encryption. No need to check on facts the first time through, eh? - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Doesn't dropbox offer a convenient recovery for your files? In which case their encryption is reversible. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
indeed. i trust Dropbox about as far as i can comfortably spit out a handful of razor blades. - Big Joe Silence

I'm quite sure I don't need this second double espresso but we recently switched back to a Flavia machine at work and I had forgotten how much I liked the blend they use for the Espresso Blend. Two sugars and two coffee packets are delish!

Excellent deal on mozzarella and aged balsamic vinegar? Awesome. Fresh living organic basil also cheap? Even better. Forgetting to buy tomatoes? Dumbass.
