If walls had...

well, mouths, the ones in my aptmt would tell me how much they love the posters I've put up - a lovely Monet art print of "Water Lilies" in my bedroom and the oh-so-awesome Casablanca in the living room...

Thrilled with my good taste in posters (I can hear you rolling your eyes) - I went ahead and indulged myself in a 75% off sale at allposters - 3 fine art (Monet, Van Gogh & another Monet) and 2 entertainment posters - an awesome Godfather mini movie poster with "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse" and a F.R.I.E.N.D.S spoof of "Lunch on a Skyscraper"...

Being the proper, careful (and yes, its ok for you to say, 'sometimes boring') me, I wanted to get them laminated or something - so I could preserve all their glory...

But guess what, for posters that barely cost me 3-5$, I would have to spend about 7-8 times that to get them laminated... Totally not worth it right?!?

So here I am considering pinning (ouch! now if posters could talk!) the posters to my walls... Off I go now - looking for the pins... L8r then!!

Get your Chrome on

In case you haven't heard already, Google has launched a new browser Chrome - which I've been happily using since the day of its launch...

Its fast, light, feature packed and could seriously pose a threat to the IE/Firefox browser domination out there... What I really really liked - lets you import bookmarks from both IE and Firefox - which is the next logical step I would think - seeing that IE imported its own bookmarks, Firefox imported IE's and now Chrome does them all!

Here's the link to Google's Official Blog (yes, I read it regularly) -

And here's a few articles that have some cool tricks for Chrome (if you think Chrome is cool, these links make it look cooler!!) - read in this order -

My fave - the third link, point#3 - definitely worth a look..

Gripes: No RSS feeds on sites (yet), bookmarks are not-so-well-organized

and yes, I know, I promised Part 3 of my blog-arc and yes, I'll definitely write it up soon - life got in the way :(

ciao for now!!
