Friday's Shoegasm, a Fawk You Friday and a Vlog



Today I'm taking my hubby away for the night.  We're going to Magaliesburg to stay at a pretty lodge for the night and the girls are going to sleep over at my sister's house.  I have a great surprise adventure planned for Saturday morning and I'll post about it when I get back because its still a secret.

Take my Friday's Shoegasm button and join me in posting your favourite pair of hooker heels.   


I don't know who does them or where to find them, but I LOVE these!
Manolo Blahnik US$945  Ouch!
SnazzyHeels.com $200
Giuseppe Zanotti Woven Platform Shiny High Heel Sandals $695

Badgley Mischka $245

  • Fuck you to The Beatles who wrote Let it Be.  That song makes me cry EVERY fucking time!
  • Fuck you to the disgusting Stevia pills that I'm using in my tea instead of brown sugar.  It DOESN'T taste the same, assbags.  Its blah!  But I have lost 3kg since I started using it.
  • Fuck You to Natalie Portman who looked absa lootly stunning in Black Swan, which I watched over the weekend. I was gob-smacked by her beauty, elegance and acting.  Yeah, the first half was a bit slow but the second half was whacky and creepy (just the way I like it).  How can a woman who lost all her fucking body fat for this film, be so breath-taking?  Normally, I hate waifs (perhaps I'm secretly jealous - of course I am).  Ballerinas always have a magical place in my heart.  They just take my breath away. 
  • A huge Fuck You to the woman from ABSA Customer Services in Durban, who just phoned to crap on me because some random guy came in to her branch telling her that he has my old phone number.  He says keeps getting text messages from the bank.  Hey! I changed my details with the bank, Bitch - who then is sending him text messages?  Me or You?  Sort it out, asswipe.  She didn't bank on getting a foul-mouthed Scots Lass on the other end of the phone who gave her "what for".

Merel Mtouch multitouch table hands-on

Merel Mtouch multitouch table

Multitouch tables haven't exactly hit the mainstream, but price is likely to be a major factor. Merel's Mtouch table brings that familiar Microsoft Surface-like multitouch functionality for a fraction of the price, retailing for $3,995, or about half as much as Surface. The 720p, 32-inch display doesn't sacrifice on power -- a 3.2Ghz quad-core Intel Quad i5 Sandy Bridge processor and dedicated Radeon HD 1GB video card keep the Windows 7-based interface running smoothly -- but the table's display suffers from some uniformity issues, likely due to the pair of super-bright LEDs used to light it.

We spent a few minutes with the Mtouch at the CEA LineShows in NYC, and liked what we saw -- once we got past the lighting issues, which appear slightly exaggerated in the photo above (notice the two bright spots near our subject's fingers). Content is loaded using a web interface, and the table is compatible with a variety of formats, including PDFs, which are displayed as "magazines" with easy-flip pages. The table is in the early stages of production -- just 30 have been made and sold so far, assembled completely at Merel's factory in Yonkers, NY. They are available for purchase now, however, and should be shipped to your door within 30-days of placing an order. Jump past the break as we go hands-on with the Merel Mtouch.




Sony's A77 and A65 spied in leaked image, announcement to follow?

Sony's A77 and A65

First shown nearly a year ago, what appears to be a leaked official photo might finally mean the forever teased A77 is finally on the horizon. If you'll recall, the high-end Alpha was sporting a svelte see-through body, and the only tidbits the Japanese firm would confirm were the 2011 ship date and that all forthcoming Alpha's would have translucent mirrors -- you know, the spiffy kind that enables DSLRs to focus while shooting video. Opportunely, the above pictured image also came with a bevy of specs, which we'll have to assume apply to the pricier A77: a 24 megapixel sensor, 11 point AF, 10 frame per second burst and an ISO of 102,400. Also on the docket is USB 3.0, and a ship date of October. Whether or not the August announcement pans out remains to be seen, but you'll certainly know when we do.

Samsung reveals 'premium accessory suite' for Galaxy Tab 10.1, includes premium prices

Samsung-keyboard-dock

Loving your Galaxy Tab 10.1 but just itching for some accessories? Samsung knows you are, and today helpfully unveiled a "premium accessory suite" to soothe your jones for both add-ons and premium prices. The collection (parts of which appeared earlier on Sammy's German site) includes a full-size keyboard dock ($70) and a multimedia dock ($35) enabling HDMI pass-through – you can have Tab video on your TV, as long as you buy the separate HDTV adapter ($30). You have your choice of cases, as well: a book cover model ($60) you can leave on while using the tablet, or a leather pouch edition ($30) that is, you guessed it, a leather pouch. A few miscellaneous items round out the collection, including various chargers, a conductive stylus and the already-released USB adapter. The company also promises a Bluetooth keyboard and SD card adapter to come "mid-summer," just in time to ease your next bout of premium-accessory fever.

G-Technology's G-Connect offers 500GB of wireless storage, portable WiFi network to smartphone, tablet users

G-Connect

Hitachi's G-Technology unit has already showered us with a slew of external hard drives, but it's taking a slightly more hybridized approach with the G-Connect -- a device that offers both wireless storage and portable WiFi access to smartphone and tablet users. Designed with nomadic content-hoarders in mind, this little rascal boasts 500GB of mobile storage, can simultaneously support more than five different devices on its 802.11n wireless network, and, when connected via Ethernet, serves as a WiFi access point. It's also robust enough to stream up to five standard-definition movies at one time (or up to three HD flicks), and, at about 9.7 ounces, it won't add too much weight to your quiver of gadgets, either. If you're worried about security, you can surround the network with a password-protected fortress, or store some of your less mentionable content in your very own private folder. iOS users can further enhance their G-experience by downloading the accompanying app, which will allow them to view and access all of their G-stored documents and media from the comfort of their iDevices (an equivalent app for the Android crowd will launch this fall). If you're interested, you can pre-order the G-Connect from G-Technology's website for $200, or wait until it hits retailers next month. Full PR after the break.

Archos unveils bare-bones Arnova 7 Android tablet, priced at $99

Arnova 7

Link

We caught a brief glimpse of Archos' new Arnova 7 tablet when it hit the FCC last week and now, we have a few more details on the company's affordable Android-based slate. Though there's no information on its RAM or processing capacity, the latest addition to the Arnova clan boasts a seven-inch, resistive touchscreen LCD with 800x480 resolution, supports 720p HD playback, and offers 4GB of flash memory. Running on Froyo, this WiFi-enabled slab will give you access to the AppsLib store, rather than the Android Market, and won't come with any of the front- or rear-facing cameras you'd expect from higher-end products. But, then again, it's pretty hard to argue with any tablet priced at just $99. No word yet on when the Arnova 7 will start shipping, but we'll let you know as soon as we find out.

Castor Oil Beauty Tip

Did you know....

...that if you have over-tweezed your eye brows  and you want them to grow back quicker to their original bushy brows, all you have to do is take a cotton-bob, dip it in Castor Oil and apply to the brows morning and night.


Castor Oil helps stimulates the eye-brows bulbs to grow back and ultimately encourages the bushy brows to grow back. Remember that it won't be an overnight process, so be patient.

Beauty Fact :  Skinny, over-tweezed eye brows makes you look older

Its Called Planking, Plonkers and Teacher Update

Planking is a new global phenomenon.  Planking is when you lie down on arb objects keeping your body stiff as a plank and take photos doing it.

Exhibit A



Hubby decided to try planking the other day, he made his body stiff as a board and fell on the bed.  One of the springs gave a massive TWANG!   Well, I thought he'd broken the bed and I haven't laughed so much in ages.  I nearly wet my knickers.  It was fucking hysterical.  

Needless to say planking has become my new pass time.  I will be posting pictures of me planking everywhere and anywhere.



Now I've got a bee in my bonnet about planking.

So have you tried it?  Send me your pics of you planking and I'll make a planking collage (if I get enough daft fuckers interested).


Go Planking, Plonkers!


I dare ye.



Remember I bitched and whine on Fawk You Friday a couple of weeks ago, about a Fucked up teacher that refused oor Megan the use of the bathroom, which made her wet herself?  Well, as promised, here is the update:
 
Well, I got feedback from the principal of the after-care facility and the teacher concerned was mortified!  And damn fucking straight for her being mortified too.

Firstly, here’s the email I wrote the principal:

I would like to bring the following incident to your attention which concerned me enormously.

Megan  attended homework class with Mrs X on 7 June 2011 (I believe that she is a Grade 2 Teacher at x Primary) and approximately half way through the homework class, Megan put her hand up to request to be excused in order to go to  the bathroom.  Not only she was refused, but Megan reported that she shouted a very loud “No!” back at her.

Megan said she then proceeded to finish her homework and lay down on her arms, while wiggling around in order to keep her urine in but unfortunately, she wet herself. She did not empty her entire bladder but Megan said her underwear and her tracksuit pants were wet!

Megan said that she then again asked Mrs X if she could go to the bathroom and this time she yelled at Megan “Just Go!”.

I feel that this kind of attitude and behavior is totally unacceptable!

When I questioned Megan about this, in order to get all the details, she said that she had not been misbehaving, that she was listening and doing her homework in silence just as Mrs X had request.  Megan has an impeccable behavior record (as I am sure you are aware, if not, speak to her regular Teacher).

Why should my child be denied the use of a body function that we all need to perform?  Why should she be put through the humiliation and embarrassment of wetting herself in class and in front of her peers?  Even if she was misbehaving, which she wasn’t, a child should never be refused the right to go to relieve themselves.  Not being allowed to go to the bathroom should NOT be used as a punishment!

I realise that some children may take chances in order to get out of class or get out of doing homework, but this was obviously a legitimate request in this instance.

In my opinion, I feel this teacher needs to be seriously reprimanded and reminded that she is dealing with our 7 and 8 year old children.  She should be reminded that under no circumstances should she use denying the use of the bathroom as punishment! 
I understand we all have bad days and dealing with a variety of different levels of undisciplined children all day cannot be an easy task. However, this is Mrs Xs choice to be a teacher.  She should behave or at least pretend that she at least wants to be there for the children.

I look forward to hearing from you promptly.

So, I got a call that evening from the principal to personally apologize to ME.  I reminded her that I am not the one that she should be apologizing to.  I wasn’t the one who was embarrassed in front of an entire class of children! 

The Principal scheduled a meeting with the teacher concerned and said she’d call me for a follow up meeting with me once she’d met with the teacher and got her side of the story.

After The principals meeting with the Teacher, the Principal called me into a meeting.  I took the opportunity to tell her again that her teachers shouldn’t run a fucking concentration camp.  I was not impressed at all! 

The teacher in question formally apologized and said it would not happen again.  Sure as fuck it won’t happen again.  I once again said that the Teacher should apologize to Megan face-to-face - not to me.  I actually didn’t want to see her otherwise I would’ve slapped her Bitchy face for her.

I stated that if ANY incident happens with this teacher again, I want her disciplined!

OBAKKI TATE BAG



my OBAKKI TATE BAG arrived! i could not get this buttery goodness out of my mind

T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide spotted in the clear, sans case

T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide

We've already seen it turn up in a few blurry shots, and seen it pictured a bit more clearly inside a case, but we now finally have our first good, unobstructed look at T-Mobile's still unannounced myTouch 4G Slide. What's more, the tipster that provided the shots to TmoNews also offered up a few quick impressions, saying that the keyboard was "amazing" and roughly comparable to the T-Mobile G2, and that the phone itself is "surprisingly fast" but a bit heavier than the G2. Hit up the source link below for a closer look.
