Yes, no, and in the air tonight

Musical Monday: In The Air Tonight
Please scroll down for Monday Mayhem

It was either Don Johnson or someone whose name I didn't pay as much attention to. Globe-trotting, short-term boyfriend mentioned that he briefly worked with one Miami Vice actor. Then off he went out to finish a meeting while I stayed behind to finish viewing bundles of photos. In one snapshot the guy he pointed out as the actor preceded him on the stairs of a plane. My mind ambled along opening scenes of The Real McCoy; the roar of Ferrari as Burnett and Tubbs sped on a dark highway interspersed with Phil Collins' bark-like "oh lord, oh lord, oh lord..." God I must have existed in the 80s already :D

Monday Mayhem: Yes or No
Please scroll up for Musical Monday

Today's meme is based on the popular YES or No.

We will focus on the internet. Answer yes or no for each question. Because I am so very nice, I will allow you to tell one story about one of your answers.


1. Googled yourself?
I thought it was silly, but I got to sort something someone said. Read: skin the little bug alive

2. Googled your neighbor?
Sometimes we're on the lift together; and as the mercury on the neighborliness thermometer plunges, so does the interest to bother about remembering that I don't even know their first names

3. Used Google maps to spy on someone?

You should be asking if I used google maps to locate Mt. Ararat

4. Spied on someone via Facebook?

5. Friended someone on Facebook that you don't know?
It's the other way around

6. Tweeted gossip?
not my style duh

7. Followed a celeb on Twitter?
I'd rather follow my own dreams

8. Kissed any one of your Facebook friends?
and loved it!

9. Regretted an online relationship?
knowing when to stop has its advantages

10. Dumped someone online?

11. Played a prank on someone online?

12. Spied on a High School bully online?
The bully in my high school must have had brains enough to victimize only those he could

13. Written a nasty email?
At my age, if I have to attack someone, I'll do it face to face

14. Sent something X-rated via email?
received - yes

15. Searched your state's/locality's database for predators?

16. Done an online search on someone's traffic offenses?
If it's not my concern, I don't bother

17. Ordered dinner online?

18. Purchased something over $250 online?

19. Left an anonymous comment?

20. Checked out someone else's email (as in spy on your s.o.)?
it's not me

Peggy, I don't know. Last time I saw him perform was at the Queen's Jubilee at the Buckingham in what year was that... I've forgotten which year was it. I will always like his hits though

Sense and Sensibility: 200th anniversary

In 1811 Thomas Egerton of Whitehall, London published Sense and Sensibility. Quick math shows it has been two centuries since Jane Austen became a full-fledged author.

Quite an anniversary, indeed. A celebration, I declare.

Blogs regarding the publication anniversary of this romance novel picture Jane Austen's engagements whilst making the final touches of her manuscript from Sloane Street. In letters to her sister Cassandra, Jane gave accounts of her shopping for muslin, the party that their brother Henry and SIL Eliza gave; mentioned several acquaintances, and referred to her book as S and S.

As a fan I wonder which between sense and sensibility did JA deem more important since she portrayed both attributes equally well. I'm obliged to enthuse over my S & S reading experience. Alas, I only managed fourteen chapters before getting sidetracked by another novel, the very first that JA wrote. I will resume and complete my affair with the celebrant before 2011 ends.

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…
