It's a cellphone, no a tablet, no it's a... DESSERT TOPPING!

With apologies to SNL.  So I found this cool thing which is really pretty neat as gadgets go.  It's the Asus Padfone.  This is an awesome concept.  Your cellphone becomes a tablet by inserting it into the tablet and closing a door.  The CPU and GPU on the phone drive the tablet.  You get all the features of any normal tablet plus, if you need to add a stand and keyboard (ala laptop configuration) all you do is attach that tablet to the dock for the laptop.  So everything is contained in the phone.  How freaking cool is that?!!  Check the video:

LA News Event of the day

Apparently there is a rash of Chinese people in Los Angeles suffering from Koro.  Koro is the fear that your genitalia will shrink or recede into your body cavity.  And now, I have no more words to say.

Memeface to the rescue

So this morning I'm enjoying breffast out.  Nothing like getting a tasty treat with bacon piled high to start off the weekend frivolity.

Princess Sweet P didn't want to brave the arctic blast so I'm getting a togo order.  Which means I have time to cool my heels and enjoy KFI.

"Gem of the day.  Guy is walking across the street in an apparent attempt to ingratiate himself to plumbers everywhere.  By this I mean that he's dropped his trousers to knee level or thereabouts.  Cops see guy shuffling along and note that his shuffle is rather, extreme shall we say.  They stop to say hi and then proceed to discover...

... the 13" TV he stuffed into his britches."

I only wish I could make this stuff up.  I actually had to call Paulina and interrupt her Princess-ey slumber to tell her about this.  We're both cracking up envisioning this and it occurs to me that I can probably use memeface to better illustrate this rather than pictures of stuff that I happen to find.  So from now on, when/if I update this blog, I'll be including the appropriate memeface.

City of Angels

Winter Trees
Spent a good bit of time on the left coast recently (actually I think I've been there more than in Atlanta this year).  We're doing some good things that are geographically agnostic so why not go there when it's cold?  Right, I couldn't come up with anything either.

There's a radio station there, KFI 640 AM which is chock full of hilarity of the Jerry Springer variety.  It seems like every single day there is a new crazy person being crazy.  So far in the last couple of weeks we've seen:

-Guy goes into house, starts shooting everyone, robs house, cops show up, guy sets fire to house, guy exits house, sees cops goes BACK INSIDE, fire department shows up and basically watch the house burn up.  Because there's a guy shooting everybody that was stupid enough to go back into the burning house...

-Pedophile starts snapping pictures of kids in his neighborhood (there's been a rash of teachers recently getting caught with kids thanks to the LA Unified School District Unions... go figure.), gets reported, cops called, he freaks out, they arrest him, check his computer find pics of kids and kiddy porn, and all kinds of disgusting stuff.  Gets his bail lowered, takes off to Mexico.  The populace is PISSED.

-Just tonight a gum chewing crazy did an OJ minus the low speed chase part and got himself shot at a gas station.

This is exactly like a train wreck that you can't stop watching.
