this is the daily fix.

Are things better when bigger. you decide.

 

1)The Division of Space Installations by Radford Wallis

An office building was being shown to potential buyers but they hadn’t split it up yet.  Radford came up with an unorthodox way to show the seperations between spaces. Personally i think it was pretty awesome.

 

I give you giant office supplies

2) Led giant shift button.

At many online stores you can now get giant shift button lamps. The gift to give or receive for your geek.

3) Now to laundry has anyone ever wondered what a giant Clothespin would look like. Well  Mehmet Ali Uysal did he is a artist and teacher who did a  giant clothespin for the Festival of Five Seasons, an art festival featuring massive outdoor installations.

 

my question i leave with you does size really matter?

this is the daily fix and i am





Back to the cards.

3 02 2011

this is the daily fix

We talked about how kings were historic but what about the ace.

When kings and queens originally played it aces  were the lowest card in the deck. During the french revolution that changed. games started to be invented like aces high. The Ace was symbolic of  the lower class rising above the royals.

 

this is the fix and i am





fishy kisses.

3 02 2011

This the daily fix

i think its time for a little bit of randomness.


fact #1 did you know that most lipsticks contain fish scales.

if your a girl it makes you think twice before reapplying your lipstick. if your a boy you might want to rethink that kiss.

My thought is who’s bright idea was it to put fish scales in lipstick in the first place.

The term French kiss came into  being in London England in  1923 as a slur on the French culture. Which was thought to heavily into sex. In France, however it is called a tongue kiss or soul kiss. The reason being if done right, it feels as if two souls are merging. In fact, several ancient cultures thought that mouth-to-mouth kissing mingled two lovers’ souls.

 

so thats the fix with your host





Playing cards never looked so historical.

30 01 2011

well the fix is back from my hiatus,

Playing cards and there historical beginings.

Did you know that the kings, queens, and jacks all originally stood for someone in particular. Everything about a ordinary deck of playing cards has meaning way to much meaning for just one fix. So i am going to focus on one thing. Today’s fix is about the kings.

the king of spades is  king David

king of hearts is Charles the VII

King of diamonds is Julius Caesar

king of clubs is alexander the great.

So now you know what the king represent.

this as been the daily fix.





Seducing the Heiress a review of the book.

1 01 2011

I chose to do my first book review on “seducing the heiress” by Olivia Drake

I finished it a little while ago. right now im going on a romance novel binge.


Basic information

type of book: as is obvious by its cover its a romance novel

Setting: London, in a time period when we still you used horse and carriage, a time when society was called the ton

Now these character s make you fall madly in love with them.

First you have Miss Portia Crompton. A wealthy heiress but without a title.  Her family just moved back to London from India. Where she grew up and you find out she hates it in London.  In the beginning she seems to be following her mothers wishes to settle down with a man with a title. In the first chapter shes there mingling with the ton and she accidentally slips that she has killed a tiger. the women freak the men are in awe. so you see a under current of the uniqueness. she gets saved by our other main character  Viscount Colin Ratcliffe by means of a strawberry.  She seems innocent of the ways of the world and the more you read the more you find out how innocent she really is. Later on in the story we find that Miss Portia isn’t quite what she seems. she is planning to run back and marry the maharajah’s son and not some english duke or viscount. She is led by passion and sometimes you just want to throttle her for some of her choices. The one thing i cant get over is her name.  Portia -means offering and in our modern society the first thing i thought of was car and her last name Crompton – is just as bad. but minus her poor name Portia is quite the entertaining woman.  you find yourself drawn to her and she ends up feeling like a sister who makes the worst choices imaginable.

Then you have our Romantic lead Viscount Ratcliffe.  He fits the tall dark and handsome build. you find yourself irresistibly drawn to him. he seems purely evil and roguish. which is what attracted me to him.  but as you read you find new layers and he becomes so much more then a rogue.  the first layer you pull back is that hes honorable, then you find out he helps others, and these layers keep coming each one more irresistible then the last. He is truly a great character.

Then you have a mix of underlings.

the women of society are dreadful gossip mongers and people who look up there nose at everyone and they are utterly delightful.

Portia’s mom is a self center women, who looks out only for her best interest. i personally wanted to punch her but it just goes to show she is a great character to inlist that responce from me.

Portia’s father thinks his Portia deserves the best. a little one dimensional but he bring some light-hearted fun

Portia’s sister Lindsey bring the comic relief which is oh so entertaining.

The viscounts mother on the other hand is a frivolous daft woman who needs men to protect and take care of her.

and you cant have a true love story without a villain. and Duke Albright provides just that.

the last three characters you have are the servants and they all bring there own element. They serve to help get the two lovebirds together.

the characters in this book are amazing and you would think with such wonderful living characters. this would be a must read, but then you wouldn’t be talking about the plot.

this is where my rating of this book gets harsher

the plot is all over the place. the characters sometimes do things just because the author wanted them to and not because the character would actually do it.  The lust of our heroine is a bit unrealistic and sometime verges on comical.  but even then i could forgive it and was still engrossed because of the in depth characters. Then comes the end of the book.

There are ways to end books. romance novels usually end happily ever after or at least the audience gets closure. however in this book you get a end like this.

break up. back together. Oh your wonderful. kiss. end abruptly.

the end was so abrupt that it took me a second to realise that the book was over.

for the most part i loved this book but the ending ruined it for me.

i give this book a rating of 3/5






Whats what . . . Hobson’s choice

1 01 2011

Hobson’s choice

PRONUNCIATION:

(HOB-sonz chois)

MEANING:

noun: An apparently free choice that offers no real alternative: take it or leave it.

ETYMOLOGY:

After Thomas Hobson (1544?-1630), English keeper of a livery stable, from his requirement that customers take either the horse nearest the stable door or none.

NOTES:

Hobson had some 40 animals in his rent-a-horse business and a straightforward system: a returning horse goes to the end of the line, and the horse at the top of the line gets to serve next. He had good intentions — rotating horses so his steeds received good rest and an equal wear, but his heavy-handed enforcement of the policy didn’t earn him any customer service stars. He could have offered his clients the option of choosing one of the two horses nearest the stable door, for instance, and still achieve nearly the same goal. More recently Henry Ford offered customers a Ford Model T in any color as long as it was black.

the man himself.

well that was do you give a damn blip

and I’m miss fix
