Suck it, Starwood

Don't ever go to a time share presentation. No matter what you are promised. These people are big fat lying liars. $100 for 90 minutes of your time? Yeah, right. More like 2-and-a-half hours, and they'll try to give you half the money at the end, and jam your cell phone, so no one can rescue you.

Don't do it, even if you think you might want to buy a time share. Because you don't. Anyone who can do simple math can figure that out.

Finally, if you ever do get sucked in to going to one of these things, bring a tape recorder. I'm sure they'll love that!

No exercise without electricity!

One commenter calls this the fluff that's killing the Chronicle; I call it creative reporting by a worker bee who was probably sent by his editor to cover a potentially boring event.

(thanks, Wags!)

Who's the @$$hole at Microsoft that came up with this?

This morning I was using my laptop and my 21-month-old was sitting next to me on the couch and he suddenly shoved a blank onto my lap, thinking I might be cold, I guess. In the process he banged on the keyboard and my screen turned UPSIDE DOWN. I restarted a couple times, and the Windows screen before the actual launch of Windows was right side up! Luckily my husband's laptop was nearby and I was able to easily find the solution.

Someone has to have waaaay too much time on their hands to do something like this. Microsoft needs to lay off about 25 percent of its workforce.

Oh, yeah, I haven't done this in a while!

Top 5 Strength Exercises For When You Have No Equipment and/or Only 20 Minutes:

5. Push ups (military, knee, bench, wall, whatever you can do!)

4. Tricep dips (when it gets easy, lift one leg straight out in front of you)

3. Walking lunges (keep going until your quads quiver)

2. Bicycle (for abs)

1. Superwoman (lay on your belly and lift all your limbs; for your back)
