are you a geek

Are you a geek?

Someone called me a Geek today; of course it wasn’t the first time. People seem to say it as an insult, where as I’m quite proud to be a geek. Who would be ashamed to be a geek? Suddenly I realised with horror that maybe I don’t really know the true definition of geek and that I was being insulted.  Are you a Geek, do you know the definition? Are there even different types of GEEK?    Are you a geek? Lets find out – Time to check on some on-line dictionaries First stop….  Wikipedia – A peculiar or otherwise […]

Brizzly – A Simple Way To Experience The Social Web Or Not?

  Always on the look out to try different ways to view twitter, a friend suggested that I try Brizzly.com Brizzly is a web application, with numerous novel added features, I was very excited! To start – Set up a Brizzly account and then log in through your twitter account, and add facebook; then you can switch between Facebook and Twitter. My first impression of Brizzly surprised me, I was instantly disappointed with the design or layout, it looks too busy like Facebook or Bebo, the minimalism and simplification of Twitter web, Tweetdeck or many others is what makes it […]

Vision of perfection.

As Maria walked towards the beach that morning she had a nervous feeling in her stomach and a bead of sweat on her brow. Even this late in the year the beach was still heaving with happy holiday makers sunbathing or playing in the sea. There were lots of bronzed muscled bodies seemingly working with the water sports company – taking people out on boat rides and renting various kayaks, pedal boats or inflatables. Maria chose an inconspicuous spot amid the other bathers, far enough away but also near enough to see, she rolled out her towel and got comfortable […]

Three Steps to Facebook Heaven

  Ways to edit your Facebook settings. I was prompted to write this post after hearing a few scary stories, one about some teachers that were having an evening out (an event) which lots of ex-students arrived at for a joke as they had seen it advertised on Facebook, and a pretty bad story involving a teenager that I know, who was lucky someone helped them change their settings soon enough. I still just don’t get it that people don’t use the Facebook settings to their full advantage. Either they just don’t know about these settings, they don’t know who […]

Men in flip-flops – I don’t get it.

Men in flip-flops, you guessed it, I don’t get it. Maybe it’s just me, I’m not a lover of feet, they aren’t the most attractive part of a person’s body are they? Lets be honest here; they are frequently frightening to look at. There is just something very wrong about men baring their toes in a pair of flip-flops. I do appreciate however, that flip-flops are particularly practical for shower use, or on the beach, especially when you are wet from the sea, and need something to put on quickly. Personally, I think they should stay there; at the beach. […]
