I know. I know. The weekend came and went and not a peep out of me on this blog. I'll be honest with you, I was too tired to post.
I have a bone to pick with techie people. Ever so often as the technology advances they change things and tout that it is improved and better, but you know what? It is improved and better for them because they are so savvy with the technical stuff. They fail to realize that the majority of us that actually use the products and programs they create may not be wise-cracking-technophiles like them! So what they think is easy is not really easy for the rest of us. What they think is intuitive is not necessarily so. We, unlike them do not work and function in a high-tech environment like they do all the time, day in and day out; we go to it when we need it. It really ticks me off when they mess with the damn things so much than rather than help or make life easy for the user it ends up frustrating and angering us.
End of rant.
Apart from the whole technology thing, I've been busy coordinating with my publishers and the organizers of my upcoming book signing and book launch in Guyana that is slated for this weekend.
The book signing is on Saturday, Feb 19 at Austin's Book Services from 10.30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the book launch is on Sunday, February 20 at Herdmanston Lodge at 10 a.m. If you read this blog and you live in Guyana or have relatives and friends there, please share the information with them.
I'll try to take as many photographs as I can, to share with you. In the mean time, you can feast on some pasta and basil pesto, and for a twist to things, chop up some sweet ripe tomatoes and toss it on top. That's the kind of fast food I've been having these days.
I'll post next weekend, until then, do be good.
