Moving Weekend

Posted in Arieanna & Ianiv

We’re on the move! Blogaholics is packed up and we’re moving from Kitsilano to North Van.

I want to do this great ‘Ode to Kitsilano’ post, but frankly I’m tired and a little claustrophobic surrounded by boxes.

So, let’s leave the Ode for next week and cross your fingers that nothing major breaks during the move ;)

My favorite Skype 3.0 feature

Posted in Gadgets & Gizmos, Technology

Skype Chat Notification SettingsI upgraded Skype to version 3.0 today. In general, other than some nice look and feel changes, the features are use have stayed the same. But I just discovered what is my favorite new feature: Chat Notification Settings.

Why? Because in the past, when at conferences or other events, I’ve participated in multi-day, high traffic chats. These are chats I really want to be part of but I can’t pay attention to them all the time. When I need to concentrate on my work I don’t want the taskbar to start blinking or the new chat message sound to distract me all the time, and the only way to get rid of it before was to quit the chat.

Now I can keep the chat window open without having it blinking every time a new message is received. You can even add keywords to be notified only when those are part of a message, so you specify your name as a keyword and be notified when someone wants your attention.

Spoofed Christmas Clips

Posted in Funny, Movies

Think you know your favorite Christmas movies? Well, try these on for size – spoofed Christmas favorites. Like "A Charlie Brown Christmas" alternate meaning for what Christmas is all about.

Or "A Christmas Story" turned into a horror movie, freaky as heck. There’s a reason I never liked that movie.

And then there’s one of my alll time favorites, "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" turned into an unrated version where the children discover they don’t need Santa because they have their own "built-in" toys. *Shudder*

 

Enjoy!

Now Playing: Il Divo Christmas Collection

Posted in Music

I was watching Oprah this week (yes, I will admit to watching Oprah almost every day) and Il Divo was performing some songs. I do think them a little too on the Operatic side for my personal taste, but I will give them all credit for amazing voices (and great hair too, btw).

Anyway, I may not want any other Il Divo CDs at the moment, but I do enjoy their Christmas Collection CD. I guess I am ok with traditional sounds for my Holiday collection.

 

Track listing:

  1. O Holy Night
  2. White Christmas
  3. Ave Maria
  4. When A Child Is Born
  5. Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful)
  6. Over The Rainbow
  7. Panis Angelicus
  8. Rejoice
  9. Silent Night
  10. The Lord’s Prayer

Now, aside from track 6, which seems kinda wonky for a Christmas CD, I did enjoy listening to this.

Flickr Holiday Easter Egg

Posted in Arieanna & Ianiv, Funny

Check out Flickr’s Christmas easter egg. If you add a note to a picture with the text “ho ho ho hat” or “ho ho ho beard” the note will display a Santa hat or a wite beard. See what I did to Arieanna :)

Coffee with milk, sugar and… pee?

Posted in Food, Funny, News

Yep, you got it. A mighty pissed of employee started peeing in the coffee pot, and it was all caught on video.

Yep, I’d say that’s why the coffee was tasting weird. Ew!

Blogaholics at Chris & Ponzi’s wedding

Posted in Arieanna & Ianiv, Events

Chris and Ponzi, your wedding was beautiful! Ponzi, everything was so you! Your choice in decor was spotless and the ceremony was beautiful! Congratulations to you both!

Instead of sharing pictures of the lovely bride and groom here, I invite you to go look at the Flickr set. And enjoy a picture of us instead (how do you like my new hair?) ;)


Photo by Scott Beale / Laughing Squid who has more Chris & Ponzi wedding coverage here.

We have some pictures too, though not nearly as good as those taken by all the photo geeks there!, but we have yet to even upload them. The joys of moving ;)
