a to do list for this blog

You know, I just can’t seem to get things done in a timely fashion.  Just to kick my bum into gear, I am going to write up the things that I have been knocking off of my 101 list, starting with these things:

  • Learn to tango.
  • Learn to make excellent risotto.
  • Find a hat that looks good on me.
  • Visit a friend who is far away.
  • Eat a mangosteen.
  • Grant a wish.
  • Write my Senator.
  • Write my Congressman.
  • Find a rockin’ pair of glasses.
  • Go a week without wearing make-up.
  • Storm out of a room, dramatically.
  • Get to 400 blog entries.
  • Learn the Presidents, Vice Presidents, and a few bizarre facts about each.
  • Have a conversation with a stranger.
  • Spend an entire day in my pajamas.
  • Read 5 books that I own, but haven’t read.
  • Finish 5 books that I have started.
  • Watch five movies that I pretend I’ve already seen.

While some aren’t, most of them are completed.  And bitches, I’ve got the photographic evidence to prove it!  That is, on some of them.  So by the end of next week, I will have completed my list of things on another list that I am to document.


again with the favorite android apps

Edited April 14, 2009: I added another one…

It’s been a long while since my last list of favorite apps, so I guess it’s time to make a new one.

Let me start off by saying that I am not what you would call an early adopter.  I am not one to look for all the bleeding edge apps, and I could care less if I get the first post on the reviews.   With that said, here is a list of the apps that I am using constantly.   By the way, they are all still free.

item 18: finding miss meliss

While I love making lists, it is on rare occasion that I put them to use.  Shopping lists end up in the wrong bag, to do lists end up on the first page of unused Moleskines, and my 101 list seems to be going nowhere.  

On New Years Day  (okay, yesterday), I looked over to see if there were any that I might check off.  Happily, there was one:

my favorite g1 apps

When I first got my G1, I thought “goody for all the apps!”  Of course, not wanting to load my new toy with junk, I looked long and hard at all of the app reviews.  From what I can tell, every major review was posted shortly before the release of the G1.  Why do I say this?  Well, it seems that most of the must-have apps are also must-have-been-nice apps.  

Seems that Google did a little house cleaning before setting up the Android market.

Inasmuch as I would have liked to have a retinal scan available, I am making due with what is there.  Let me tell you, there isn’t a whole lot.  Don’t get me wrong, there are things being added every day (and believe me when I say that I am looking).  I guess I was hoping that what was there would be more… I don’t know. Useful?

On to the list…
