Freaks & Geeks in the City of Lost Wages

wed night 7:30p
While standing in line to board our flight a women who was headed home to Las Vegas told us that not only is CES happening this weekend, but the annual porno awards is too. She laughed and someone else said “yea, it’s freaks & geeks all over town.” Might be an interesting weekend…

I think I’d like to watch lesbian porno if it was produced by lesbians and not men displaying their version of what they think it is. L-Word is about as close as I get. Yeah! it’s starting again on January 18th on Showtime. Anyone going to an L-Word Party? There’s one in Nashville at the Tribe. They serve a great brunch and you get to sit around with a room full of dykes and watch the show. The comments are hilarious. If you miss too much of it because you’re laughing so much you can go home and watch it later in the evening when it comes on it’s regular time on TV. It’s also a fundraiser for HRC.

We’re flying right now at 40,000’ somewhere over Kansas. I think we get in around 9:30p which still leaves a little bit of time to go check out the slots in the MIrage. Cool hotel with real Lions in lobby. Maybe just tigers but big cats either way. We have a cat at home that thinks she’s a big cat. She tries to take us down almost daily. Thankyou Brenda & Deb for taking care of the beasts while we’re away.

Don’t forget to send me any requests to check out a booth for you. If you go to the CES booth there’s a vender list and a searchable data base by keyword. Email me if you can’t find it. There’s approximately 2700 booths so if you know what kind of gizmo you want to know more about or what company is bringing out a new thing that’s helpful.

Here’s some things that are a “buzz” at this year’s show…
Home theater & entertainment stuff.
See the economy really sucks. Have you noticed? Companies are beginning to figure out that most of us haven’t got a pot to piss in. Our 401ks have shrunk or disappeared, our houses (if we still have one) have depreciated, our jobs have flown to China and gas has cleaned our pockets of whatever was left. The war on the middle class is in full swing and buying fancy toys isn’t high on the list. So, flash is out and practical functionality is in. Get it? Anything we can buy to help us stay home and entertain ourselves is also in. Are ya diggin’ that “trickle down economics” now?

Another hot item this year is the smart phone. I hear palm is making a comeback at CES. Remember how you loved that old palm pilot? They kind of lost out to Apple’s Iphone for awhile and the blackberry. I’ll be sure and go try one Mary and tell you about here. (see previous post’s comments) Verizon has a big presence at the show this year too.

So, that’s it for now…from my southwest seat in the sky.

Peace & Love,
Val
