As soon as I saw the decoration on this cake, I knew the “artistry” was done purposely for effect. Why else would a cake feature right justified writing on it?
Now available to pre-order from Amazon, Canon’s new 200-400mm f/4L lens. Features image stabilization, USM for fast autofocusing, and a built-in extender that takes the lens to 280-560mm at f/5.6.
So the price is quite steep, but this is a heck of a lens!
Have you been to the Starbucks location in the Park Shore Hotel in Waikiki? It’s on the corner of Kalakaua and Kapahulu, right across the Honolulu Zoo and features an awesome interior. The focal design point of this store has to be this picture of a wave break.
Once you get past the imagery of the wave then you’ll start to notice the other interior touches.
This location features wood everywhere. The walls, the tables, the displays, and even the ceiling panels are wooden veneered. Don’t forget the added warmth provided by the filament lights. While they don’t emit much usable light, it’s all about the ambiance. If you’re visiting the zoo, cross the street and check out this delightful Starbucks.
I gotta learn to overcome my habit of correcting technical mistakes. So I got an email at work that said something technically incorrect. After indirectly telling the sender about the correction, I get a follow-on email telling me how my correction isn’t a better solution. Umm, I didn’t say it was better, but it is the correct term for the topic at hand.
I shoulda left well enough alone. Even after a venti mocha and a nap, I feel exhausted from this wasted effort.

My hunt for LEGO minifigures series 10 is now done. While I don’t have the entire set, I have the ones wanted. I finally found Medusa and the librarian and also picked up the baseball player and paintball guy.
Medusa was really hard to find. I think since she’s easily recognizable, collectors nab her fast. I must say her tail is exquisite. It’s not short and stumpy but a long, windy tail. I was surprised how difficult it was to find the librarian. Keying on the coffee mug, I identified so many grandpas but only this one librarian. It’s all in the hair.
The baseball guy is common. Feel for his glove which is permanently attached to his arm. The paintball dude was kinda easy to identify with his bulky helmet. Once you feel that, you can verify by searching for his paintball gun.
While digging through and converting my stack of miniDV tapes, I found this gem of Bruddah Sam and Lina Girl from Local Kine Grindz back in 2007. Along with featuring Kin Wah Chop Suey, the show’s duo had a humorous skit leading up to their visit to Liliha Bakery.
Sam and Lina should reprise their LKG roles for a storyline on Hawaii Five-0!
Of course everyone takes rice cookers for granted. You get uncooked rice, wash it up a bit, put it in the cooker with some water, and wait. Not much to it right?
Except that there is, and you can unlock the flavors of freshly cooked rice with the Zojirushi Neuro Fuzzy Rice Cooker. At 5.5 cups and armed with fuzzy logic, this is THE rice cooker to get.
This BIC Cristal for Her Ball pen set is definitely not a gift for mom on Mother’s Day (or any day for that matter). But then again, if mom likes a good laugh, she’ll definitely get one after reading all the Amazon comments about these “for her” pens.
I won’t go into the backdrop of the Tonight Show prank. Just enjoy the singing and natural charisma of Will and Monifa.
Livin’ for the gas!!!
Strike 1! Western Digital 500-GB external drive that powers up but then is completely silent.
Strike 2! A different WD 500-GB external drive model that powers up. But then the drive sounds like it keeps trying to spin up again and again and again.
Strike 3! An external Maxtor 750-GB drive that powers up, spins up, and mounts on the desktop. But when I try to actually use it, I get errors and delays. Disk Utility says it needs to be repaired even though I just freshly formatted it.
After striking out with Maxtor and Western Digital, the next batter up is Seagate. And I’m hoping to drive one out of the park, swing for the fences at 4 TB!!
