So...question for all my Apple Geeks

Samsung or somebody just announced that they've managed to make a pretty cheap 128 GB solid state memory chip...think this could be destined for a higher capacity iPod touch in the not-too-distant future?

I'm going to need at bare minimum a 64 GB iPod touch on the market before I can seriously entertain buying one...and even then I'd have to pare down what music's stored on it. And I'm one of those freaks that enjoys having my entire collection with me.
deliciously white trash

just 'cuz

on a whim today I decided to shave off my mustache and return to just a goatee. I haven't actually had just the goatee since before I started shaving my head. For reasons unknown to modern logic, mom feels that just the goatee makes me look "evil" (and the shaved head doesn't?) but she's out of town, so who cares what she thinks?

I like it. Of course, I'd probably like it more if I lost some weight from my face. Dammit, i really have to get back on a gym schedule. I've been so lax, and I feel fat (and not very sassy).

don't know what a hollaback girl is

a cinematic realization

I've decided that I really like movies about the Halcyon Days of Hollywood, especially meta-films about that period: LA Confidential, Hollywoodland, even, god help me, The Rocketeer.

I'm certain this says something about me, but I've no idea what.
victory is mine

wow...

I just made the perfect classic gin martini.

You're gonna need a digital scale, though. Man, I watch WAY too much Alton Brown.

In a cocktail shaker with ice combine
63 grams (or cc's, since we're measuring liquid. assume 1:1 ratio for water to booze for this drink) of gin
9 grams of extra dry vermouth
13 grams of Stirrings™ Blood Orange Bitters

Shake until shaker frosts, pour into a chilled glass.

Quite nice. Especially with tales of Old Hollywood on the DVD player.
