A marketing hint

Dear Tefal,

Proudly displaying the fact that your non-stick surfaces are non-toxic on the packaging of a frying pan does not inspire me with great confidence in the quality of your products. It is as if you have given up, as if you are saying: "Well, we all know the non-stick surface is going to come loose anyway and you'll be eating bits and pieces of it over the course of a few years, but at least ours won't kill you!"
I would suggest downplaying the non-toxicity a bit, and investing heavily into non-stick surfaces that don't stick to food but do stick to the pan.

Poetic justice

This morning, on my way to work, I saw a girl walking a dog. She was using the edge of the curb to scrape dog-shit from the sole of her right shoe.

Setting up again

I've spent some time setting up my phone again. With some minor tweaks, the phone feels again like my phone.
- I exchanged the standard analog clock widget for the retro clock;
- klik has one of her lomos as her background. I selected one too;
- I used Ringdroid to select the first 30 seconds from the 'Encounter' track off the Metal Gear Solid soundtrack (which you can listen to here). Now whenever I get called, I drop into battle mode!
- I set up the Metal Gear codec sound as the notification sound as well. It's pretty low-key, and it fits. :)
