aceraspire5517This is the first installment of our eMails From Home series.

Had to buy a new PC as well because the Toshiba was just too small on my eyeballs and it was kind of buggy to tell you the truth.

I bought this Acer Aspire 5517. This one has the webcam and it has 260 gigs of space. So far I’m really impressed with it – the screen is very bright (I hate dim screens) Keyboard is smooth to type, and it’s not buggy. The internet connection is really good.

The only thing I wish it had was a built in microphone like the Mac has. Emma is really starting to like her Mac. It’s amazing how when you pick up something that works everytime, you start to appreciate it.

So we have a cell phone now too – it’s a Telus phone (Cheapo Samsung) and it’s on a Pay As You Go plan (or prepaid as Verizon calls it) This is Emma’s cell phone if you need to get ahold of us anywhere in the USA when we’re not at home in Los Angeles. The number is 555 555 5555. Read the rest of this entry »

Emails to Home Series

November 20th, 2009 admin Posted in eMails to Home 1 Comment »


First of all – check out the very cool Gmail bar of soap above. I would love to get some more Google paraphernalia to have around the house. I guess this wouldn’t look so cool anymore with a big dark pubic hair stuck in the middle of it…….OK OK…..GROSS!

At we have started our Emails to Home Series, whereby we post emails that we send home to family and friends, but only if the email is talking about a product we’re discussing and what-not.

These emails (or letters if you please) will have to be about some kind of consumer based product that we have just bought to make our life move a little easier. Our staff will post them emails periodically.

Keep in mind that the identities, names, and locations will be changed to maintain the privacy of all involved. The whole idea is to talk about different shopping products. Stay tuned.
