Asa imi place mie sa fie o femeie

Deci am avut intalnire cu una. Neagra, buna. Cand am ajuns la intalnire ea era imbracata frumos, aranjata, ciorapi din aia lungi pe tot piciorul , pantaloni scurti peste si pantofi cu tocuri. Eu, ca de obicei, cu ce gasisem curat in dulap si adidasi. Ea se uita la mine si isi scoate din geanta o pereche de balerini (asa le zice la opincile alea?) si ii incalta in locul pantofilor cu toc pe care ii baga in geanta. Apoi zice nu stiam cum vii tu imbracat asa ca am luat ambele sa fiu sigura. Asa imi place mie sa fie o femeie, pregatita sa se muleze dupa mascul in orice situatie, nu sa ma stresez eu cu tot felul de chestii.

Fiind un gentleman (ce pusca mea!), nu pot povesti restul intalnirii.

Cainele subteran si berea duminca devreme

A inceput sezonul de Formula 1 asa ca m-am dus la bar sa urmaresc cursa cu fanii. 10 televizoare mari in bar, de fapt unul din cele 10 era un ecran mare pe un perete, sunetul cam naspa in unele locuri dar a fost ok. La un moment dat vine o gagica la mine ma intreaba daca sunt fan F1. Eu ma laud ca desigur. Aia nu se lasa si ma intreaba cu cine tin. Eu raspund ca cu Schumacher. Aia, perversa, nu se lasa si ma intreaba dar daca nu era Schumacher cu cine as fi tinut? Grea intrebare! Cum ma gandeam eu ce sa ii zic aleia, ca statea acolo si se uita la mine, imi aduc aminte ca am invatat acum o luna un cuvant nou meserias si imi zic stai sa vezi ce o dau pe spate pe asta. Cuvantul la care ma gandeam eu era "underdog" insa eu aleia i-am spus ca in general eu tin cu "the underground dog"..aia a fost totusi desteapta si s-a prins ce vreau sa spun, apoi a plecat in treaba ei.

Intorcandu-ma spre casa, pe la 4 noaptea/dimineata ca atunci s-a terminat cursa, am vrut sa iau niste bere, sa fie bere in casa. Am incercat la 4 magazine, ca am zis ca poate totusi ..insa nu am reusit, aici in New York duminca intre 3am si 8 sau 6 am, nu mai stiu exact, nu se vinde bere in magazine. Dintre toate ciudateniile de aici asta mi se pare cea mai ciudata.

Oracle Academy - visiting LA students

Oracle Academy, the educational arm of one of the world's great software development companies, Oracle Corporation, was visiting my college a week ago.Chris Hollinger, Operations Manager of Oracle Education Initiatives gave a presentation on job readiness to a group of  CS majors. His presentation focused on practical advice for students preparing to enter the job market. He emphasized the importance of differentiating one’s self in the cover letter of an application. He encouraged students to be proactive in pursuing opportunities to demonstrate the skills in applying their knowledge to real-world problems that will differentiate them from others in the job market. He also emphasized the impacts of internationalization and outsourcing and the ability to work with team members across cultures and time zones. He concluded his presentation by answering a number of student questions relating to specific job market issues.

Oracle recently bought Sun, so they now own Java and the MySQL database.  The Oracle Database Management System dominates databases  worldwide with nearly half of the total market.

Armeanul e frate cu romanul

M-am tot gandit cu ce sa incep contributia la acest minunat blog. Aveam 2 negative bune, cu indianul de la spalatorie si cu negrul de la sexshop dar am reusit sa ma abtin, bag una mai putin negativa. O sa fiu scurt, ca is cam ruginit dupa atata lipsa de activitate:)

Acum o saptamana am facut cunostinta cu un armean. Ala m-a intrebat de unde sunt, eu am zis Romania. Aaaaa, Romania, Transilvania, Vlad the Impaler zice el insufletit..zic eu da, chiar de acolo, in Transilvania is nascut. Isi baga mana in buzunar, scoate 2 dolari si imi zice "uite 2 dolari, cand mai mergi acasa si treci pe la mormantul lui sau pe la vreun monument in cinstea lui , ia o floare sau o lumanare sau ceva de banii astia si pune din partea mea, ca noua in Armenia ne place de el ca a avut multe batalii cu turcii si a omorat multi din ei".

Asa ca acum am o noua obligatie cand oi ajunge in tara.

AT&T to Buy T-Mobile USA for About $39B

AT&T Inc said on Sunday it would buy Deutsche Telekom AG's T-Mobile USA, in a $39 billion cash-and-stock transaction that would create a new industry behemoth by combining two of the four largest U.S. wireless carriers.

The purchase price includes a cash payment of $25 billion with the balance to be paid using AT&T common stock. AT&T has the right to increase the cash portion of the purchase price by up to $4.2 billion.
Read the full story here

Dupa ce au pierdut exclusivitatea cu Apple, cei de la AT&T dau din nou lovitura. Cum sunt unul dintre clientii T-Mobile USA,stirea este interesanta . Sunt curioasa ce fel de schimbari va aduce aceasta achizitie pentru noi,clientii T-Mobile. Sincer, am fost foarte multumita cu serviciile lor pana acum.Iar preturile sunt decente.Acum!
But...if you think TMobile's rates will remain low I have a nice bridge to sell you in San Francisco. Cheap! :)

EDIT:T-Mobile issued a statement regarding the acquisition.In the statement they gave a few of the common questions they were asked and answer to them regarding the buy out. You can check it out here:
T-Mobile statement

A couple thoughts -
How could T-Mobile possibly be worth $39 Billion? Deutsche Telekom is only worth $59 Billion and the majority of their value is in Europe (hence the name).
Let's hope that they ditch T-Mobile's crap network, but keep their amazingly customer-friendly policies. They are definitely the nicest phone company by far.

Official: Minuscule Levels of Radiation Have Reached SoCal

Radiatii cu un nivel minuscul au ajuns si in SoCal. Situatia este monitorizata intens(zice EPA).Dar oare cine crede ce spune EPA?:)Plus ca asta suna ceva de genul: "An unknown source quoted an undisclosed level at an unkonwn location at an unknown time".:))))
Ca urmare mi-am luat vineri off.:)) Deocamdata nu am vazut reactii isterice sau ceva diferit in comportamentul oamenilor. Dar sa vedem ce ne va aduce weekend-ul!

LAPD limits impounding of unlicensed drivers' cars via LA Times

Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said the department changed rules for impounding cars of unlicensed drivers at sobriety checkpoints in part because he didn't think it was being done properly.

Previously, LAPD officers at such checkpoints followed stringent protocols that called for them to impound a car whenever the driver was found not to have a valid license, regardless of whether the driver had been drinking. Those rules have drawn the ire of immigration advocacy groups that said they disproportionately targeted undocumented immigrants, who are not able to obtain licenses legally in nearly all U.S. states.
The new LAPD guidelines soften the department's stance somewhat. Police will be required to make an attempt to contact the registered owner of the stopped vehicle. If the owner is a licensed driver and can respond to the checkpoint in "a reasonable period of time," the officers will release the car to him or her. If the owner is unlicensed, officers will permit another person who is a licensed driver to take the car. If no one with a license is available, police will impound a vehicle. In any case, police will issue a citation to the unlicensed driver.
Beck said that since he took over the department more than a year ago, the checkpoint policy had "stuck in my craw as one of the things we weren't doing the right way." Beck said he decided to make the change after immigration rights advocates raised the issue with him anew in meetings this week.
"I'm tired of casting the net so wide," he said. "This is the right thing to do. There is a fairness issue here ... and we're trying to balance the needs of all segments of our community and keep the roads safe."

Funny guy, this police Chief Beck.
I like the part where he says he is going to issue a citation to the anonymous

Accident,extrema urgenta -Modelul american

10 West , vreo 2 mile inainte de intersectia cu cel mai aglomerat freeway din US:405 freeway.
3 accidente pe o jumatate de mila(era la ora cand freeway-ul este destul de ok si se circula cu viteza mare). Al 2-lea accident pare destul de serios. Din pacate am ajuns acolo imediat dupa politie,iar trafficul era complet oprit. Cred ca am stat  cuminte in masina undeva la vreo ora .
Dupa prima masina de politie,incep sa apara celelalte unitati de urgenta:paramedics  si firefighters.Undeva in dreapta mea era o intrare pe freeway,asa ca au taiat toate liniile pana la banda de urgenta din stanga mea:

Intre timp au mai sosit vreo 5-6 masini de politie,tot pe banda de urgenta din stanga.

Mai sosesc si alte masini de pompieri,semn ca accidentul este destul de serios.

Towing truck  ca sa elibereze soseaua.

Cam asa arata locul accidentului :

Aici se  vede locul celui de-al 3 -lea accident.

Trafficul din spatele meu...:)))

Timpul de raspuns al politie in LA este sub 3 minute.

Gas prices -Santa Monica

Saptamana trecuta(Februarie 26) in SM,la intersectia dintre Santa Monica Blvd si Lincoln Blvd.

Un pic mai la vale,intersectia dintre Lincoln Blvd si Olympic Blvd,tot in aceeasi zi.

O saptamana mai tarziu(Martie 4) ,aceleasi locatii:

Bonus si un Shell din aceeasi zona:

Concluzie: pretul benzinei creste  cu cca. 10 c/saptamana.
