FB - The Week in Review (1/16 - 1/22)

I'm going to try something new. Since I do so much posting to Facebook these days, and everything I post is quick, but not always easy to find, I'm going to attempt to recap the week of posts here. Mostly it will be links spattered with a few photos or thoughts. Italicized bits are from the original FB postings.

Good to know for the next phone upgrade... I still love my phone, even without Froyo, and I'd much rather Samsung hold off on pushing upgrades than wind up with a brick or text messages that go to unintended recipients. It would be nice to see an update someday, though. Android upgrades: Which manufacturers can you trust? - My Samsung Epic still has not received the Froyo update. I'm perfectly fine with this, although there are a few applications I can't run on my phone because of this. Of course, since I've never used those applications, I have no idea what I'm missing. Along the same vein, near the bottom of the article there is a link for which carriers can be trusted for upgrades.


Locals: Please stand by. I'm going to be unloading a bunch of things, starting with Christmas decorations/supplies. We have way too much and need to get it GONE. Anything not picked up by friends will be freecycled or donated. Pictures will probably NOT be posted. - I have a ton of stuff to get rid of. I'm going to post this offer here as well. I don't plan on shipping anything, but if anyone is interested in looking through our crap (clothes, toys, craft supplies, Christmas supplies, etc.), I'll probably let most of it go for free. Some of it will be available to ship (my yarn or roving, for example), but most of it really just isn't worth it.


This is not your everyday version of Chopsticks... I would love to be able to play the piano this way.

Om nom! Double-Chocolate Cranberry Cookies - These cookies look positively amazing. The size of the cookie is a little insane and when I make them (and believe me, I will be making them), I will probably cut the size in half. Who drops cookies by the 1/4 cupful? o.O


Full time desktop and Aloha support position, Thursday - Monday. Aloha experience is not a necessity but is certainly a plus. Admin, POS Support Job in Irving 75062, Texas US - My department is hiring. If anyone happens to know someone local who has desktop experience, Aloha experience, and is willing to work weekends, please pass the link along.

This makes me nervous about using my card just about anywhere anymore. Report: Restaurants a big target for hackers - B has done a lot of work in his previous job and his current job regarding security, and we've been quite cautious because of his knowledge, but that doesn't make us immune to the dangers of using a credit card. At work, we're doing as much as possible to protect the guest. I have no idea what other companies are doing. I know there are companies that don't see the importance of this, and that's the part that scares me.


B's band performed at Dragonfly Studios a couple weeks ago. - The name of his band is Badrawn, which, if I recall correctly, means "in the basement," where they practice every Monday night. B is in the lower right with his drum.



Great idea! meal Train | Meal Calendar for New Mothers, Surgery, Illness, and More - I recently just made a few freezer meals for some friends who were dealing with a major surgery. I think I'm the only one who made meals for them, but had I seen this website prior to making the meals, I probably would have gotten a few other people involved. This truly is such a great idea!


Because I'm not already addicted enough... Angry Birds to receive Valentines Day edition on February 14th – Android and Me - Angry Birds is probably my favorite game on my phone. It's wicked addictive and really makes me nuts. I've completed all the levels in the original, but still have yet to get three stars on all levels. I imagine the Valentines Day edition will be added to Angry Birds Seasons.


Tucking this one away for the next brunch... Omnomicon makes » recipe: butterscotch-pecan biscuits - These look so tasty and so simple. This is definitely going to be tested here soon.

Forget the lemonade... if life gives me lemons, I'm making these! Cheeky Kitchen: Meyer Lemon Sweet Rolls - Holy moses, these look amazing! I can't say I love making cinnamon rolls because they involve so much time, but the end result usually makes it worth it. To find something like this, something so lemony and yummy looking, makes me want to try all over again. This might be something to tuck away into "morning foods for guests" arsenal.


Sometimes I go for days or even weeks without posting anything. This week was a busy week for me, really.

That chopsticks video was brilliant! ;)

I know! I was incredibly impressed. :)

I miss your real posts ;-)

But... I like that you've put snippets here...

I miss my real posts, too. I swear I don't know how I kept up with LJ before.

Thanks!
