Recommendations. Smile!

If you want to get along with me, bear in mind that I'm a mix of these three Enneagram types: 4, 5, 9. What about you?

There's more to a smile than you might think! You can even tell where people are from, just by looking at their smile.

“I see a bit of the full risorius in Tony Blair, but the American political elite cannot do it any more, which is a bit sad,” he said. “They have lost that dignity. In blind tests George Bush’s smile emerged as cynical rather than pleasurable.”

And remember, the expression that's usually on your face, will determine how your face will look when you get old, so make sure you banish the frown! And make your smile a sincere one!

Common Errors in English.

I don't remember if I've mentioned Wikipedia before, but I'd just like to point your attention to it. It's an excellent encyclopedia that is written collaboratively by its readers. The site is a Wiki, meaning that anyone can edit almost any article. It covers a lot of subjects, the English version currently has some 491,000 articles. Other languages are for example German, Swedish, Esperanto and even Danish. However, these aren't as large as the English one... Well, check it out!

When GMail was first announced, I thought that it was too good to be true (and the timing, that it was announced on April 1st, didn't exactly bode well, you know!). And what about the google ads and what about privacy in using it??

Well, now that I've been using GMail for a wee bit (thanks for the invite, Odie!), I must say I'm equally surprised at how unobtrusive the ads are (if you're used to google, you can more or less 'zone out' the ads...) and delighted by some of the features.

I am especially loving the conversation style of the emails. It's like a mix of IM and email. Also the fact that the inbox refreshes itself, is just one of those little things that are just so nice! So time saving!

So, should you like a GMail account (it does, after all, come with 1,000 MB of space, which is more than most people will ever need!), I've got 50 invites for it, so send me an email or contact me on MSN and it'll be right along.
