Welcome to my little corner of the world, this is where I rant, rave, kvetch or wax on nostalgic about anything and anyone that crosses my path at that moment in time.
Sit down for a bit and read some. If you enjoy what you read, please pass the love on to others so that they may partake in the yummy goodness that lies here.

I posted a few weeks ago about how I was addicted to Instagram after discovering the app for my Razr and have been hooked ever since.  So much so that I am constantly using it to check for new photos posted by those I follow and then check the popular tab for new interesting pics to look at.  Obviously Instagram is on par with Facebook, MySpace (anyone still use that?), Google+ in that it is a haven for all those that want attention from the masses from every little thing that they post on the internet.

Which is fine for them, they are allowed to do what they want with their lives but when should they start to think twice about what they post?  Celebrities can pretty much post whatever and their fans will gobble that shit up and ask for more, never tiring of seeing Justin Beiber's face plastered all over their screens or Snooki's for that matter.  At what point does the care-free postings of a new pair of shoes or pose with a fan slide into posting pics of them rolling a fattie or celebrating some stupid act by some idiot?  

Does anyone even care?  I know I used to but then celebrities that I actually liked came out that they had a different ideology than I about certain things and I decided then, that life was too short to care about what another person believes in seeing as they personally cannot affect me with that thinking.  Sure, they can influence many of their fans into seeing things their way but there is an opposite to their yin that will hold just as much sway with just as many fans that will be just as involved with spreading their views as the first person is.  So now I just don't care if some celebrity is into Obama or another one is into Romney or someone likes chunky salsa or another like guacamole.  I have more important things to do with my time than have a running list of what celebrities I like/dislike based upon their personal beliefs, they just like us have the same freedom to share those feelings as everyone else.

It still won't stop me from looking at the pics.

Moleskine/Fountain Pen

About a month ago, I got a couple of Moleskine pocket notebooks just for the hell of it.  Been wanting to get some once before but could never bring myself to paying the cost of them but these were on clearance and Star Wars...so I had to.  Now the point of my getting them was to be able to carry them with me or at least one of them with me, at most times to write whatever, whenever.  Of course I have not really been carrying them that much but I'm half way there.

So I made one as my personal writing book, sketch, idea, whatever thing and the other is more so for Herbalife, notes during STS's, clients, etc.  I have managed to keep them separate in that regards so far at this point.  Bonus points for me.

Now, just last week I was in Walgreens looking for some replacement toothbrush heads for mine; which it seems no one carries now, and ran across a fountain pen...so I bought it.  Used it a little at the house when I got home and took it to STS for notes in the Molsekine notebook.  I love this pen as much as any person should love an inanimate object that is.  It is a Zebra brand fountain pen.  Nothing fancy, comes with two refills or it should say a fill, and a refill of ink.  Of course knowing my luck, these pens have probably been discontinued with the refills never to be produced again.  Especially considering I didn't see them in Wal-mart a day or two later.
