In 30 Seconds...

That's all it takes for this commercial to take me back to September 11, 2004. My last day in Switzerland... and my last embrace with The Austrian. 

How can 30 seconds... with no words... bring back a heart full of emotion? 

Kate Winslet's expression of the longing, the hope... of what is, what was, what can never be... filling me with the memory of heartbreak and LOVE like no other.

Where ever life takes me... I will never forget the emotions I experienced with the man that changed my life... and how I feel about love.

He will forever haunt me... and it's something I will cherish... always.

Love is a treasure...

Older than Dirt?

NO... but I am older than the MOUSE!

On December 9, 1968, Stanford Research Institute scientist Douglas Engelbart demonstrated his unique invention -- the computer mouse -- for the first time in public. It took another decade and a half for it to catch on, but once it did, computing was never the same.

Boy... do I feel old!!! ;-)

Best Thing EVER...

I have a new best friend. It's the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto Machine!! I love it so much that I have even given it a name... Rosie. Why... because the shape of it reminds me of Rosie, the maid from the Jetsons!

Here's a little PSA on this wonderful machine: 

It’s never been easier to produce a high-quality, coffeehouse caliber drink experience in the convenience of your own home. NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto is a single-cup coffee solution that is specially-designed for the savvy coffee drinker:

• No mess, No fuss. Everything you need to make hot or cold drinks are contained in our easy-to-use capsules

• NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto utilizes a professional-level 15-bar pressure system (similar to coffeehouse machines) which helps to ensure that every cup is perfect with a foamy froth, rich crèma and luxurious flavor. Other single-cup home brewers offer only one-to-three bars of pressure

• The unique patented Custom Control Lever, combined with airtight capsules, is specifically designed to optimize the extraction pressure delivering the best quality, texture and customized strength with every cup

• The exclusive KRUPS Thermoblock technology heats the water fresh every time, in less than
 one minute

• NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto uses only the highest quality ingredients - featuring only 100% Arabica roast and ground coffee, rich chocolate and foamy milk

• Stylish and sleek design that will stand out on any kitchen counter

I'm telling you people... this machine is AWESOME!!

The Dark Side...

This weekend my best friend and I are having our annual Star Wars movie marathon! It'll start tonight with two of the movies along with sushi and martinis. Tomorrow we will resume our movie fest with the remaining four movies while we chow down on doughnuts (we have to start fairly early), ham and green onion rolls (appetizers), and pizza!! We will be sipping on cosmos most of the day... and I stress "sipping"... or we never would remember the third or fourth movie!! 

Okay... we are nerds! But really it is just an excuse to lounge around in sweatpants and eat and drink until our heart's content... or our belly's are full!!

May the force be with all of you this weekend!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

We have about 4 inches of the white stuff on the ground... and everything else for that matter!!

It actually is quite beautiful... although the road I live on will NEVER be plowed. So it's slip and slide through my neighborhood streets to get to work. But at least the office is close... and I don't have to get on the main streets with everyone else!!

Winter is here, folks!!!
