MSN Live and A fun Quiz :)

Happy Birthday Google!

This has been one of the craziest weeks I have had in a long time. This week dad is here to visit, we are relocating our office at work, and MSN Live Search launched late last night. Every hour seems to be packed with activity, anxiety and details.

MSN Live Search is lackluster to say the least, really it is a minor tweaking of what Google already does so well. MSN really needed to up the wow factor and inspire product loyalty, but they fell flat on their face. Yes, the suggested searches on the upper right hand side are nice, but for a more experienced search user it's kind of pointless.

If you like quirky quizzes check this out. I will be interested to see what happens with the Website reviews section, I am always looking for great ideas and good design companies to refer my clients to. The Potamkin Honda site that they reviewed this week is exceptionally well done. Kudos to them on such a fantastic site.

Busy rambling thoughts

My husbands best friends got married this weekend and it was lovely. We spent all weekend with them just relaxing and helping with last minute details. Everyone was so cheerful and happy and calm. I definitely wasn't calm before our wedding, I was so nervous that something important wouldn't get done (like the marriage license). Everything turned out magically at both weddings.

This weekend I didn't get my laundry done, or the shopping, or any of the 11 zillion things I need to get done before my father shows up this week. This is causing me huge amounts of stress, and I am not dealing with that as gracefully as I could be. I have always had that problem, when I get stressed I get very angry and with my bad temper that doesn't work out well for anyone. Hopefully I am better than I was, but I wouldn't count on it ;)
