So I've been lured over to VOX by the ever alluring Jax. I like it a lot, though it is a bit lacking in community features. I likely won't be leaving Live Journal, but this could be the beginning of the end of MySpace for me, and the death knell for Blogger. It just seems really stupid to maintain four separate blogs when I hardly have enough to say for *one*.

Anyway, you can find my VOX blog here: http://irea.vox.com/

I've started posting a "Photo of the Day" on my VOX blog, which I probably won't post anywhere else.

I may or may not copy all my posts here as well, so if you want to be sure to read everything, (yeeeeeah, like anything I write is important or even interesting), then look me up on VOX.

We've been living in the new place since December (so I guess I can hardly call it the 'new' place anymore) and just a couple weeks ago I finally got around to decorating our balcony with a new cafe set and bunch of plants. It was the prettiest balcony in our square! And then the heat wave came and now all but one of the plants are just about dead. :/

It's not supposed to be 100 degrees in San Jose!

In related news, a dove has chosen to nest in one of the dead hanging plants... guess I won't be replacing that one. I'll take a picture tomorrow if I can do it without scaring it away. :)

How to not get a second date

How not to act on J-Date

Guy makes assumption that girl is not interested in him, and INVOICES HER for dinner... you've got to read it. Really.


In reference to this previous post, I have been screwed by Thunderbird or karma, or both.

Some random browsing this morning through my "sent" email brings me to the realization that the email I had sent to apply for the outrageously cool job was truncated. All they got was my intro paragraph. No rates. No portfolio. No contact numbers. NO ACTUAL RESUME.


No wonder they never called. :/
