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?)!

Light Shimmering Gold and Pink FOTD

Slightly scary one! My lips are major chapped, my eyes are puffy because I’m bloody knackered, and I just have rather weird look on my face! But overall I do like the simplicity of the gold and pink colors!
