In honor of Pi Day I am indulging in an ode to pies. I LOVE baking pies. Unfortunately I love eating pies as well so they don’t make an appearance in my kitchen often. Many people seem to be intimidated of the pie-making process, which I attribute largely to the crust portion of the ordeal.
Since moving to Cupertino I have heard endlessly about the Duke of Edinburgh. It is an English Pub in a Chinese shopping center, and happens to be across the street from our apartment. We have ventured over for dim sum but had not made the journey for fish and chips. Which is really silly considering every local I have met knew where I lived in reference to the Duke.
A friend of mine sent me the link to his new company, Musiccas. And let me tell you, I was floored. “MUSICCAS streamlines the media intensive audition process by automating the submission and receipt of audition material.” That is directly from the website which also has a snazzy video about the process. But it really does just that – it makes auditioning simple.
Last night my husband and I traded in our car. We had received quotes from the Salesperson and knew what we wanted before we arrived. It seemed like it would be a fairly straightforward affair, as straightforward as any car purchase can be. We arrived at the dealership at 7pm with excitement in our eyes and left at 11pm feeling a little dead inside.
I LOVE all things Google. I know, I know, I’m not supposed to admit that as an Apple Wife – but its absolutely true. I use Gmail and have never even opened Mail or iCal. I make my husband use Google Calendar so we can synchronize our lives. I don’t believe other search engines exist and have only recently been swayed to start using Flipboard, though I still jump on Google Reader before pinning.
The iPhone game craze is everywhere, and for some reason controversial. If playing a game keeps a kid quiet in line, or me from eavesdropping on the conversation next to me while my husband is in the restroom – what’s the problem? Isn’t it better that the kid doesn’t cry and I don’t snicker at things I shouldn’t be hearing?
Apple has become a part of all facets of everyday life, even fashion. Last weekend I saw a gorgeous leather Hobo clutch complete with an iPhone cut out to showcase the specially designed smartphone sleeve. It seems every woman is like me, trying to figure out how to keep the phone within reach without taking away from the outfit.
