Under the influence...

So are you an influencer or do you fall under the influence of influencers around you?! Not  a bad thing either. I really heart this video big time and the person who sent it to me mind you. His passion for brands and how they are made and how they sustain themselves in the market is electric. This video is shot like a dream in one of the greatest cities ever NYC baby! Influencers, such an interesting concept, so simple, yet so overlooked. And at the same time, so darn obvious!Funny Enough this just made me think of the new Lanvin for H&M commercial...besides the point, but also the point I guess...

Have a look and see if you fall under its influence.

do android's dream of electric beeps?!


Motorola Flipout. Image from motorola.com
 so do they?! I received a new motorola flip out phone and was fascinated why it flashed android every time it switched on. I am all too familiar with Phillip K Dick's Android's that dream of electric sheep, but what is this Motorola trademarked android. Does it dream of electric beeps?

This particular phone has an android platform 2.1...ooh what does that mean other than from my experience that this dear android likes to snack on battery life.OFTEN!!!

Android, in short is a software platform designed to deliver a personalized and customizable user experience on mobile devices...bla bla..in short android is the name for motorola's operating system for some it's current and future handsets.

While I semi flipped out at the thought of a new  phone, that wasn't linked closely to a juicy little fruit or one with the symbol of a fruit as it's icon, I was intrigued to make a forray back into the world of smart phones.

Now well... 1. I don't feel so smart, because I manage to move icons on my screen by mistake.
                   2. I live in PERPETUAL fear of battery death. I carry a charger around like a lactating
                       mother does her breast pump!
                  3. The flip out is a great social butterfly though. As small as it is, it gets BIG attention! People like
                      to look at it and touch it, see it.

It's my first motorola...I like the fact that I can change the covers though, even though with my wardrobe black is best. The other colours make me nervous! Lumo pink is unsettling and green really just puts my back out.

This android dreams of battery beeps. This is all I know to be true. Word to you! Hello Moto!

should we start a book club?

picture taken from meetmeatmikes.blogspot.com
I'm short of books to read, but more than that I'm short of connecting with my old friends. The good ones that I like and actually want to keep. Along the way we lose people in our lives and let's face it, in some cases that really is no real loss, but rather a relief and a definite, why the HELL did I not do that sooner?!

BUT there are those goledn oldies, the ones from high school, that didn't fizzle away with the drunken blur of receiving our final exam results. Those who no matter where we are or where we moved, when we meet, we pick up where we left off. But that's just it, we barely meet anymore. That is ridiculous. Work has taken over and it really shouldn't and we have just become lazy or not bothered, which is bad.

We need to get together, because these relationships are honestly why we are still up and running. They are the Jungle Oats to our breakfast of life. These friendships should be championed and maintained and cherished.

ASooo..should we start a book club, so we can see each other more often. At least now we'd have scheduled dates and times and noone could back out of this. We could bring new friends too...Nothing quite like it. Oh and I could get some more ideas on what to read.Wouldn't that be a treat.

We would un-WINE-d and just catch up life and some good G on G (girl on girl) bonding!...hihi...That sounds rude and it's not meant to be...

So let me know your thoughts or perhaps propose some prose...
