Think ”melt ice with your body heat” not how to find a cheap room. Funny, insightful slightly relieving.

My thesaurus is messing with me.

I have a thesaurus from 1961. I love it. But it has those irregular pages that some old books have.You know, the ones that feel like ridges and when you flip through them they stick on certain pages bypassing the ones in-between? That kind. It also has the words at the top corner of the page. The ones that show you a word thats on in the page so you can tell when you’ve gone too far. 

That’s not unusual. It’s just the words it hesitates on…

Let’s start with;   Ownerless (page 327)     and       Plantation (page 343)

It’s weird. Then again, the other words it turns to aren’t any better…

Devil (123), then Exile (161); Friendliness (189) then God (197).

I’m understandably suspicious but even if my thesaurus is up to something, I can’t for the life of me find the connection between   Poultry (349)   and   Relief (367)…..

Begging with no Monkey and No Organ

Ok. I’m sure everyone from facebook has seen me post about this…but I really do want to be able to go. 

Diptic

I have a chance to study in Salerno, Italy for 3 Months. Provided I can get myself there!

You can give $1, $5 or even $10….

my Electra bike was stolen

Last night or earlier this morning my Electra Amsterdam Royal 8i bike was stolen from in front of my apartment at Parkwest in Irvine.

Digging through the first weeks

Well school started almost two weeks ago. For a person who’s style of educational success is hit or miss I’ve been doing a lot more missing than hitting lately .
My slow start has much to do with my recent move and with being I’ll for the first week of classes along side medication changes and worries about work.

My question is what does one do to get the ball rolling again?

Apps

Well as you may have guessed I got an iPhone and have been spending the last few weeks arguously sorting through apps.

The first thing I have to say is: what the hell iTunes? Could you make the process of searching for an app that performs a specific function so inefficient and intolerable?

I mean really you can’t search by function and the categories iTunes uses are so ridiculously broad and unhelpful there may as well be none at all.

There is no search feature which lets you browse through just … Let’s say location based Check in apps. No place to have all the different alarm clock apps. Collected in one place so you can look through them and decide which you want.
If you search for alarm clock and buy one of those that comes up, chances are that you might be searching a completely different key word later and find an alarm clock app that (for whatever reason) never showed up at all.

Better yet , if you look on top ten lists you might also come across the best app for something iTunes “helped” you find and buy a far worse app for.

Seriously how much do you have to fail at his before someone makes an app for finding apps and makes he horrible joke that is the app store mildly acceptable.
