Happy Valentine’s Day!

star+trek+quotable+capt+women

So it’s Valentine’s Day isn’t it?

Minor depression as my boyfriend lives in the UK but we did spend a rather awesome evening talking, being goofy, etc…!

I kinda sorta think V-Day is somewhat a bit too commercial for my likes. I don’t think I need a particular day of the year to tell someone I love them! Heck I do that everyday anyway icon wink

But I did want to take a sec to say Happy Valentine’s Day to each of you and your loved ones! It’s not all about lovers! My parents get me a V-Day pressie every year and I give them one! Same for my sis! icon wink And some special friends too!

So even if you’re single you can make it about someone else that holds a near and dear place in your heart.

Single, Married, or In a Relationship the Muse wishes you only the happiest feelings in the world on Valentine’s Day!

If I could I’d give each and every one of you a big squishy hug and some hershey kisses too (because fat content is important on Valentine’s Day!)!

I hope your day is special whatever you do!

And hey what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day then with great pick up lines from the Captain right?

You’ve been officially Shatnerized with this post! And yes the Muse believes even back then it was a hair piece! For shame William, for shame!

Dear oh Dear Spock you cheeky little monkey! Naughty! Naughty!

Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Oh.
My.
God.

The Muse is in geeky heaven watching the preview for the new Indiana Jones movie! I nearly wet my pants, nearly, very nearly.

Although if possible there may be just a bit too much CGI for me. I know, I know but we’re talking old school Indy here…a little less CGI would give it that vintage feel!

By the very way Mr Spielberg maybe just maybe we could have done without Shai Lebeouf. Bloody hell I had to deal with him in Transformers and that was like root canal surgery now Indiana Jones?

You’re ruining my geeky childhood here (and geeky adulthood)….! Sinseriously…I did not need Shai Lebeouf mucking up my Transformer experience!

Anyways.

Aside from those minor rants…this has the potential to be awesome. Cross your fingers we don’t have a lemon on our hands here a la Lucas’s money grubbying Episode 1, Episode 2, etc…….that had dollar signs written all over it!

What’s your OS?

One of my readers, Dalenna, must know me a bit too well! To cheer me up she sent me a rather great geeky image!

Do check it out:

That’s right my OS will kick your OS’s butt!

LOL!

Thanks Dalenna! Totally made my day!

I’m particularly delighted with the personality of Winblows!

The Muse Heads to the MacWorld Expo!

Forget that geeky kid that dates Drew Barrymore! The new spokesperson for Apple should be Gackt!

Rawrrrr!

Anyway, your Muse is abandoning you again for a few days! Forgive me? The last time I left, one of my readers, Mandy (whom you must all know by now!) proclaimed that “the kids forgot what I looked like” while I was gone! Sadly, they may just forget again as I’m leaving you all again for a few days (you could have a case against me for divorce here! Although, I’ll fight you all to the death as no way am I giving up half my cosmetic collection!).

Don’t forget me too much k? *sniff*

I’m on my way to sunny California this time (well maybe not sunny!) to pay homage to Apple. This conference consists of a smaller group of people then what you’d find at CES and we all bow low to our leader Steve Jobs while salivating over any bones Apple throws our way.

Many geeks consider Macworld the poor man’s (poor man is used loosely as you have to have major bucks to keep up with Apple’s ever revolving technology!) CES but I rather enjoy it! Sadly, many Mac users are forced into the Winblows environment whether we want it or not. I myself run a dual boot with Winblows on one partition, FreeBSD on another, and most importantly, Leopard on my main boot.

If it was up to the Muse the world would run on a distro and we’d happily go about life! But sadly that’s just not the case (I may be carrying most of my OS on a thumb drive soon after seeing MS Office released for the MAC! Someone gag me please! This be a marriage most revolting!).

Anyway!

The good news is while I am in San Fran I’ll be visiting and staying with my very good friend Alyssi! She’ll be joining me on my adventures! I haven’t seen her in at least 9 months now so it’ll be good to catch up with her!

Items I’m looking forward to:

All of the MacLabs are sold out but lucky enough I have planned ahead and gotten into a fair few!

The 15th, Jobs will be doing his yearly keynote and again, I’m very excited about what he’ll be saying!

I have quite a packed schedule for the very few days I’ll be there and I hope to get it all done! I’d love to stay longer but sadly work calls me back so I can’t be away too long!

I’ll miss you all and I’ll be back shortly with updates icon wink

John Barrowman and Bill Baily on Buzzcocks

Off the topics of cosmetics temporarily icon wink

If you LOVE John Barrowman and Bill Baily as much as me you’ll adore this clip!

That’s my new catch phrase! “Talk to the hand because the wrist is pissed” hehe!

I’m not sure what had me laughing more Bill Baily with his “I ain’t never gonna be your bitch!” (But he never had a problem being Dylan Moran’s bitch now did he?! I crack myself up sometimes!) or John Barrowman completely agreeing with Simon about what a show whore he’s been of late (Dancing with Stars, Buzzcocks, Torchwood, Who, The Weakest Link, Need I go on?)!
