I thought it would be fun to join in the craze and post a bit more about myself. Since I'm a sporadic poster, I'm adding the people I know best at first. I'm not intentionally leaving anyone out, so let me know if you'd like to be added.

Do you know what sucks worse than a bad papercut?

Apple Safari?

Posted By mels on Jul 18, 2008 at 9:18AM

Has anyone used the Apple Safari web browser? It was available for download with the most recent version of iTunes, so I gave it a try. So far, I'm really pleased. The past week or so, I've been thinking the sugar sites were slow, but I guess that was an IE thing. The pages are loading really fast on Safari. I'm not tech savvy at all, so I was just curious if anyone else has been using it and having any issues or anything else I should know?

Did You See Project Runway Last Night?

Did you guys watch last night? Any thoughts on the new crop? I have to say, personally I cannot stand that Blayne cat. He's trying so hard to be this season's Christian, imo. The way he was calling his design/model "girlicious" and everything was something -icious. He so desperately wants to have a catchphrase. Pathetic. I also don't care for "Suede." Puh-leeze. I liked all of the top 3 designers of the night though. Hard to know much about the rest of them yet. I'm excited about the new season. Love this show! What are your thoughts?

Leopard Ankle Gloves? Seriously? Lindsay, What Are You Doing To Us?

Posted By mels on Jul 11, 2008 at 1:18PM

You have GOT to be kidding me. We must be being Punk'd. Or she is in major need of another trip to rehab. No one in their right (sober) mind could seriously put their name on these things! Knee pad leggings called Mr. President (ha)? Shiny shimmer stirrup pants? Zipper leggings? Ankle gloves? And then the prices--my head is spinning. Believe me, I couldn't make this up, but take a look for yourselves: http://shopintuition.com/

One of Many Reasons I Love Popsugar...

Posted By mels on Jul 10, 2008 at 9:10AM

...is the rolling Popsugar add in the top right corner of some pages. The part that says "Who's Douchier" and has a picture of Fabio. I mean, where else are you going to find a site that not only uses the word "douchier" but makes a game out of one's degree of douchey-ness? Brilliant. Thank you, Popsugar for all that you do. :medal:

One Year Ago Today

Posted By mels on Jun 21, 2007 at 7:39AM

According to the "member sense" calculator, it's been exactly one year since the launch of teamsugar and the new format! I remember being confused, yet very excited at the same time when the change took place. It has been great getting to know all of you better over the past year! :hug:

**I just wanted to say that I didn't mean to spam everyone's inbox with the notificaion about this blog. I thought I didn't send any, then I looked at my sent folder and I sent a lot. This was my first post in the new format. So sorry!**

Stuck Upside-Down on a Roller Coaster

Stuck Upside-Down on the X-CoasterStuck Upside-Down on the X-Coaster

My worst nightmare realized! This park is only about an hour away from me, and I couldn't believe this story when I saw it. Can you imagine being stuck upside-down on a roller coaster for over 30 min?!?! And of course they had to be at the very highest point when it happened. It's over 150 feet high. We went to this park last year with the intention of riding this new ride. However, the ride hadn't opened yet so we had to settle for the other coasters. I don't think I'll be going back now!

Anyone surprised Paris is already out?

Posted By mels on Jun 7, 2007 at 6:45AM

According to TMZ, the deal was made yesterday and she left jail early this morning. There is supposed to be a press conference shortly. Early on, I thought she'd never even serve the time. But lately it has looked like she was being made an example of, I thought she might serve more of her sentence. All of that being said, I'm not at all shocked that she's already out. What about you guys?
