The Man Trance

Read this snippet from a book on the male brain by Louann Brizendine. I believe it will help many of my female friends gain a better understanding of the things we don’t understand.

“Men look at attractive women the way we look at pretty butterflies. They catch the male brain’s attention for a second, but then they flit out of his mind. Five minutes later, while we’re still fuming, he’s deciding whether he wants ribs or chicken for dinner. He asks us, “What’s wrong?” We say, “Nothing.” He shrugs and turns on the TV. We smolder and fear that he’ll leave us for another woman.” – The Male Brain

Or…this book was actually written by a man, posing as a women in order to gain female trust, to justify wrongdoing. Hmmm….

Fun things to start the week, 2nd Edition!

Gadget blog, Gizmodo, offers up fun photography challenges from time to time. This week they asked readers for their best monotone shots. They were pretty cool.

I just found this story about a personal “rosetta stone” device that allows cemetery visitors to get information on the deceased person by wirelessly transmitting info to the visitors cell phone. (if the grave stone is equipped of course) Very strange, but also very interesting.

Very rarely do I watch award shows, but I watched the 82nd Annual Academy Awards last night, and I loved it! I loved the dresses, I loved that Kathryn Bigelow won best director (although I have yet to see Hurt Locker), and I was so happy that that Sandra Bullock won her first Oscar. The only thing that urked me about the show was the omission of Farrah Fawcett from the In Memoriam segment. They had Michael Jackson, a musician, but not Farrah… strange.

Good for her!

My favorite female look of the evening was Rachel McAdams. I loved her dress, her hair, make up…everything. It was all very natural and flowing, so pretty!

 Best dressed man, in my opinion, was Robert Downey Jr. from the neck up. It was fun, and he is beautiful. However, below the neck left a little to be desired…

Fun and handsome
