stuff to be pleased with...

This etsy shop was practically designed for me, being such an unabashed Janeite.

Scarf- Mr. Darcy proposal scene
Imagine a soft GRAY scarf (I am obsessed with gray lately) adorned with Mr. Darcy's proposal to Jane.

Momofuku's Cereal Milk Ice Cream

The above is ridiculous. And sounds delicious.  It is cereal milk ice cream. It reminds me a bit of  my beloved Mukki Cereali which I was addicted to when I studied abroad in Florence. In the Spring, when my Brioche top has abated and I can validate cooking with heavy cream and cornflakes, this will be made.

In the meantime, my mind is on B.F Skinner and Behaviorism.


Which is fascinating and not completely believable to me yet, sorry Dr. T., Free Will has been ingrained in my psyche for a while now.



And whether I should get a nook or a kindle for a class concerning technology and education.

This article and the debate and hulabaloo Amy Chua's book has stirred is quite interesting...

Have a great weekend folks, it is almost time for my friday glass ov vino! Cocktail hour! Woohoo!

Forget the Nook or Kindle. Get an iPad... It has more uses and have you seen what people who have muscular dystrophy and other special needs can do with its sensitive screen? Amazing...

I know, but they are so much more expensive and I don't necessarily want all the wi fi capabilities etc. Worth a thought though.

Plus the Nook Color has a touch screen too... But I will think about it...

Apparently the iPad's screen is EXTREMELY sensitive which makes it so remarkable for those with disabilities, and the interactive games are something you can't find on the others. I like its multipurpose possibilities. Think of using it for something else besides reading. I think it is worth the money... http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/31/nyregion/31owen.html?ref=emilybhager

Yeah it's pricey but I like the fact that you can do more with it than just read e-books:

YOu have just about talked me into it. I am going to check it out. Do you have one?

Susan said...

Oh my, didn't mean to post twice. The first attempt got lost in cyber space, or so I thought...

No, I don't have one because I can't afford it at the moment as well and I work in a classroom where it would get broken. Although, the students have been increasingly showing more respect to their environment as they become more trusting of their new teacher... Hhhmmm, I wonder if there are any technology grants....?
