i actually had to post this:

on google if you go to tools an services you can see a host of other search engines offered and being tested by google.
here is that:

there is which is a product search. ("flokai rugs" etc)
and there are others. if you go into "lab" it shows you what things they are still testing. one of these is called google sets.

i couldn't remember the name of the movie i was looking for (pulp fiction) so i typed in jackie brown, usual suspects and samuel l jackson. and i hit show me a set. and it gave me pulp fiction, reservior dogs and a few others.

ho ho ho. here's another post. so it's been a while now since i was in puerto rico. i was hoping that that post would somehow keep me there. lets see ... what's new.

well, ga and i have been on a relentless shopping spree. our apartment is now just too big. there are windos that need to be covered and bedsheets that need to be slept on. i tell you it is never-ending. aren't we just dubya patriots. consumerism.

movies - Akira: awesome.

other than that we did shopping and last night we made cheese fondue. it was yummy. the consistency was good and there were no problems. thanks for the recipe, bastiality! the only thing that we didn't have was the brandy but thankfully it didn't make any difference. at least i couldn't tell anyway. having the electric pot helped keep the temp consistent which was good. plus the recipe was way too much for both of us so i am glad we know that now. i wonder what we can do with the leftover cheese?

puerto rico was awesome.

old san juan has old spanish architechture, many churches, and because we were there around xmas - nativity scenes and little festivals and lots and lots of xmas lights and decorations everywhere. the town was very clean and surprisingly americanized. old san juan is where the tourist ships come in. there were tons of american stores like walgreens and target and sams club (all built into these beautiful old structures. the place felt raped). i didn't expect it to have so many subways and walgreens. one night we went to this indian latin fusion restaraun with a huka bar. yummy flavors.

then off to fajardo which is a the eastern tip of the island. from there we took a ferry to vieques which is an island directly to the east of puerto rico. we stayed at a house owned by Annie Flanders - the woman who created Details Magazine. the house was called las piedras or 'the rocks'. it's a four storey house w a split level entrance. the bottom was a floor that had two rooms where the parents and his sister stayed. from that level you could look out at the ocean which was less than 10 feet away. you could also look out to the right of the house at the beach. no beach was directly in front of the house it was just a walled barrier and the ocean. from this level you could go out onto a patio that had a swimming pool that over looked the ocean and then stairs that went to the ground level of the house.

there on the ground level was the entrance to a private room with its own bathroom and huge rocks inside that the house had been built around. it was pretty amazing.

we mostly hung out at the house and visited a few of the non govt restricted beaches. vieques has 70 percent of its land occupied by the us military and there have been several protects by major environmental, local and other political agenda-ed organizations for the military to exit. they were supposed to have exited jan 2003 according to george w's govt. we also went to see a few of the restricted areas that are open to the public but are monitored by govt and not allowed for use on training and testing days.

anyway the MOST SPectacular thing that i saw by far has to be one of the most amazing things i have ever seen or experienced in my life. it was the Bio luminescent bay. there are only about 10 or 15 of these bays left in the world. before we went on vacation i read about it on the internet. basically it is a bay that has a smaller mouth into the ocean and alot of pollutants - mostly caused by fossil fuel - have not entered the bay. that (and a special tree, the mangrove) allows these organisms called dinoflagellates to exist. the dina's glow in response to movement. so you go to the bay at night - we went in these single kayaks (that were like big plastic boats not metal kayaks) - and paddle to the middle of the bay. it looks dark and normal as you are rowing out but you notice that your paddle is glowing at you move it along the water. and then you see tons of fish shoot by and it looks like a shooting star. and you cup water in your hands and let it run down your arm and there are these little clumped up things are like dots that glow as they slide down your hand. and you look at the still water without distrubing it and you notice that it looks like it has active glitter in it. it was really cool. i cant believe (thankfully) that it exists and that there isn't more hype around it.

there were tons of americans expats in vieques and of course they didn't mix too much with the vieqenses. but it was interesting to meet ppl (and not have to feel bad about having terrible spanish).

What's your brand of sexy?

brought to you by Quizilla

Languid-Sexy.... You rock the messy hair and crisp white cotton sheet. Your idea of bliss is a day spent in bed with your lover. There is nothing wrong with that, though some people like to leave the bed at times. You're a total fox, even if you are a hedonistic bum.

the apt is a 1 br with about 1000 sq ft of area. the bathroom is small but everything else is great. there is even a little room just bigh enough for the cat poop. we might buy a portable dishwasher. the apartment is like the size of lizzies apt in RI except the layout is different and its on the second floor(and it's not as new nice it's old but nice). oh - and it has two porches which is nice for us bc we want to let the cats out but not out out. so they can hangout on the porch but i doubt they'd leave bc its a long jump down.

plus the place is perfect for both of our commuting needs (and i happen to think its really pretty). and its totally cheap/affordable
