You Need This App: Frequency

Questions that nag in my mind while I’m waiting for sleep to come: – Exactly how long did I spend tonight staring at Reddit Is Fun on my phone, watching gifs of puppies bonk each other on the nose instead of scrubbing my bathtubs like I know I should? – How many hours this week […]

New Toys: The Air Dock

A while ago, I found a lovely little wireless car charger called The Air Dock, gathering money for funding in an indiegogo campaign. I’d been looking for a good wireless charging solution for my car after falling in love with wireless charging via the Tylt Vu chargers I bought myself on Black Friday last year. […]

Language Barrier

During my last vacation, my friends and I came across a particular vista where we decided we needed a group photo taken. All 4 of us needed to be in the photo, so the particularly difficult process of finding someone who we thought would take a good photo of us, based solely on their appearance, […]

Yesterday, I quickly settled into my “it’s funny” category and started browsing […]

Allergy Technology

This morning, I went to the doctor to have my first appointment for an allergy study I’m participating in. The nurse spent about 10 minutes explaining to me all the stipulations, about what medicine outside the study I was or wasn’t allowed to take, what kind of timeline I was on, what side effects I […]

Samsung Galaxy SII vs iPhone4S

Ok. First off, I know this is a huge thing to blog about right now, as if you do a search for my post title, about 40000 search results come up. That’s alright, though, as I don’t care. This post wasn’t in my planned post timeline (yes, there is a sort of sordid method, believe […]

My ACL2011: Part 3

Day 2 of ACL started off a little different than the day prior. Instead of hopping a cab to Zilker bright and early, we headed to South Congress to have some lunch. We went to Magnolia Cafe, which is my most favorite place in Austin to eat. We ordered a few skillets of MagMud (queso […]
