For starters, I broke the USB on my Flip camera so that puts an end to my postponing my video reviews for a while longer. I know that probably didn’t make sense but I’m sad, and cranky, so please put up with it for a little while. For the record I did contact Flip and they don’t fix the USB component. There is a possibility that if I send in my camera, they can retrieve the priceless video and transfer it to dvd but I’m not so sure I can’t do that myself via the tv cable.
In other news I was gifted a new iPhone so I am glad to say the Razor is in a drawer as an emergency back up phone. I don’t want to sound ungrateful but I’m not that crazy about the iPhone right now… hopefully I’ll have time to download some music and applications and that will make it all worth it!
Speaking of Apple products… Boy2001 (my oldest child and darling son) attended an Apple Youth Workshop Saturday. He had a great time learning how to make videos on a Mac and got a FAB T-Shirt that he’s super excited to wear to school tomorrow. He brought up a good point, why doesn’t Apple name all their products after apples like the Macintosh computer? i.e. Red Delicious, Granny Smith, Cortland, etc… instead of all this ‘i’ stuff. Have the prods fallen too far from the tree?!
Saturday evening we went to a lodge steakhouse in South Portland, Maine — Bugaboo Creek. We are long time, die hard Bugaboo supporters but this meal was less than stellar imho. No worries as I will NOT be back any time soon but it blows to spend good money on something you don’t enjoy.
Speaking of steak, I must mention the best one I’ve had in a while was courtesy of the Total Beauty Summit NYC.
I know I still haven’t gotten around to posting anything about the summit AND now my photos are frozen on my Flip but I want to mention our night out at TAO. Although it’s not the type of place I normally go, I enjoyed the experience profusely. I go to restaurants to eat! Had I been smarter I would have looked at a regular menu to see the range of offerings but as it is I will have to judge on our group meal selections which may have been blander to cater to more people. (I like spicy food!) I haven’t had such a great steak (sweet sauce pushed aside) in AGES. Sadly, the steak was a little on the too rare side for many of the people at my table but all in all it was a great experience I’ll remember forever.
It’s midnight, I’m tuckered, see ya in the morning.
