Rain, Bouquets, Software and Awards…Excellent!

It is raining here. Good news: I love the rain. Bad news: I was about to say it undid my efforts on my hair – but then I still look so fabulous, that the arguments holds no water. Excellent!

I have this spectacular bouquet of purple and pink flowers in front of me – just to remind me that I am the most loved girl in the world. Excellent!

My current research focuses on software that network forensics experts use to track criminal activity. Many of you have heard of keyloggers? They log key strokes, documenting what you type – including username and passwords. This is actually available in software format. Also the means to send hidden mesages that are virtually untrackable are easily available in the open market. Very helpful to track criminals – but I can’t help but consider the repurcussions of misuse. Not so excellent??

The all-important, earth-shattering, moon-splintering Academy Awards nominations are announced. Here are my wishful picks:

  1. Have you actually seen all of these movies or is that pleasure yet to come? If not yet, then presumably you are using your special powers to rate them?
