telecom, technology and the occasional floobergeist

I’ve got an abundance of bits and pieces of canadian telecom and internet experience, and I am thrilled to be in a place in time when all is changing, technology is developing, and the status quo is being disrupted. 

Floobergeist is a word that is beginning to defy definition.  The more I roll that smooth pebble around, the more it becomes to mean. Floobergeist started out as the magic dust that turns dreams into ideas.  And then it began to encompass the zing that happens when you have conversations about those ideas. And now, it’s the whole evolution from dream to conversation, with each step improving the later and the former along the way.

Everyone aspires to good conversations. They can lead you to adventures you’ve never imagined, and to people you can twig with.

Let’s have a good conversation…


move over earl grey...

chaispice.jpg… i’ve fallen in love.  With a new Tea…. Chai Spice Black Tea.  It’s incredible. You have no idea - until you’ve tried it… and i HIGHLY recommend it. It’s tea, with a twist.  Go - brew some!

It was only one of my finds yesterday, whilst shopping for holiday laughter… i managed to pull together a few other giggles as well, plus one holler for me - i picked up the new Amityville Horror on DVD. I hollered, and then the wiz hollered. And then we giggled like anything… well, ok I giggled. I don’t remember the original very well, but i remembered being scared senseless.  This one was very well done, and in the end…. well, I can’t very well tell you the ending now, can I?

Mind you, this year i have appropriate footwear… not the DocMartens from years gone by ;-)

Today - our very first adventure into getting a christmas tree.  I know - we will be tight on space, but methinks it will be worth it mightily. And it will just be a wee tree…. and of course, we will still decorate the honorary white oleander ;-) Who says you can’t make almost anything festive? :-)
