The day the iPhone arrives is getting closer and closer. I'm very excited! I haven't decided if I'm going to buy it yet. I really would like to, but I think the second I cough up the $500 for it, a better phone will come out. Then again, does it really get much better than this???
My favorite feature is the fact that you can choose what voice mail to listen to instead of going through all your saved messages.
I'm a little weary of the keyboard/touch sensitive feature. But Apple has yet to let me down so I guess I'm going to trust them.
Are you going to buy the iPhone?
I am tired of seeing the same talentless faces showing up all over the place. I'm especially talking about certain females who seem to always get photographed without panties or always seem to be the center of controversy.
Ok, if you still don't know who I'm talking about...
Katie Price aka Jordan
Stop photographing these "ladies". Yo, paparazzi, that means YOU. Don't follow them around anymore.
Britney has zero talent. I saw her live years ago and walked out of the show saying "that was NOT her singing!". Her life is pure corruption and I really wish her well. She had potential to be something but SHE messed that up. SHE made her own decisions. I don't feel sorry for her.
Paris Hilton. I have so much dislike for her. What has she done? I've heard guys (shocking! guys told me this) tell me that she's a smart business woman and she knows what she's doing. Oh so is that why all her business accomplishments are always in the news?
Lohan. I'll admit, I loved The Parent Trap and Mean Girls. Can't really tell ya what else she's been in, yet I can name over 10 guys she's been "linked" to (and by "linked" I mean linked). What an arrogant, selfish little girl. She needs a mom to put her in her place.
Katie Price aka Jordan. I really gave her a chance. I wanted to like her so badly but alas, she too failed me. The latest incident involving her poor blind son getting injured by a falling mirror is just sad. I feel bad for him but it's obvious to me that he wasn't being watched close enough. He was supposedly with the nanny at the time. Where was mommy? I know she's 9 months pregnant but I do believe most pregnant mothers are capable of watching their children. I don't understand.
Do you agree with the list?
Who else should we add?
I read about this place before I visited Scottsdale and finally dined there about 2 weeks into my month long stay. The Poblano Mariscos was excellent! It could quite possibly be the greatest dinner I've ever had.
I went back a few nights later with my boyfriend who was visiting me and again I ordered the same dish. The fresh tortillas are different nightly and come with different spreads.
My only problem was that I ordered a french martini that was not so good. The server asked me what was in a french martini. I didn't know if he was inquiring for himself or the bartender. I listed the ingredients to the best of my knowledge (I'm not bartender). I'm guessing he rattled off the list to the bartender and he poured accordingly. My first sip was pure vodka. I gave the drink 3rd and 4th chances to redeem itself but I had no such luck. I wanted to send it back but thought it would embarrass my boyfriend so I simply ordered a virgin peach margarita. It was sooooo good! As was his margarita (we're not tequila fans but this was a great margarita). As for the fate of the french martini, I convinced my boyfriend to drink it and after a few sips, he too agreed that it was not good. When the bill came, it was marked as a "smirnoff martini"- NOOOOOO! They butchered my beloved, but the food is sooooooo great, I'd be back in a heartbeat.
