Everything I've seen, I've liked. I think Stephan Elliot is going on my favorite directors list. He has tremendous range (from "Priscilla" to "Eye of the Beholder") and a great sense of the bizarre ("Welcome to Woop Woop"). I'm looking forward to his latest foray.
As the season changes, static rises, mice die, and computers lock up. Here's frykitty's little anti-static tip: burn a candle. Yes, I do this and it really works. I have a little votive on my desk, and about the third time I shock my mouse into unresponsiveness, I remember to light it. Saves me a few reboots a day.
This is me blogging from home during lunch. I finally decided to try the walk, to see how long it is. It took me 30 minutes to get home, and I'm by no means a fast walker. Of course I had to upload some files, check my mail, do a little blog. So I'm taking a bus back. Still, it was way cool to freak out my sleeping kitties.
Weird search string of the day: "Nina Simone drunk." I could understand looking for Nina here, but drunk?
Okay, I have a confession to make. You know those pics in the crush section? I didn't ask permission to use them. I know, I know, that's not at all surprising. Here's what is. I've been working on a project (nope, not gonna talk about it), and I find I'm actually asking permission to use stuff. At least from the homier places that might conceivable be hurt that I took something. It's a new and exciting career turn. Sheesh, I may just be developing into some sort of professional.
Sorry to neglect you, sweetie. I'm just so sure you're going to win, I've been holding off.
Did my first Kozmo order just now. They have my brand of cat food. This is such a good thing. Couple of vids, some juice. I love living downtown.
Thanks, Uncle Ron. Okay, he's not really my uncle, but I've been calling our fine democratic senator from Oregon, Ron Wyden, "Uncle Ron" for many years. He's not perfect, but he's always connected with us, fought for us, believed in changing things for the better. He seems a man uncorrupted by his involvement in politics. These days, that's mighty refreshing.
The machine had a Windows Protection Error. There was no way to get out of it. Rebooting only resulted in safe mode. So, we (Robert and I) blow away the hard drive, spend all day reloading Windows, networking, WordPerfect, Groupwise. It all works. We're happy. Six hours has passed (slow machine, lots of problems). I close it up and boot. Windows Protection Error.
Well, the goddamned thing can have a nice weekend, 'cuz on Monday: it's DEAD.
