Movie Talk

We made it all the way to Orchard Park to catch the 10:00 screening of Fahrenheit. I can understand why people would be suspect of Michael Moore's facts. He's extremely biased and often uses select pieces of information to prove his point. But I don't think there are many facts in this film that can be argued. I personally thought that if I was a swing voter, Moore would have won me out. And that's what counts.

Extreme Ironing

Yes, this is a real sport. I wonder if they judge you on the ironing quality. Perhaps the number of creases?

Having severely deprived myself of sleep the last few days, I went to bed around 5 pm. I woke up at 8, and got ready for work. As I walked outside, I realized the street lights were on. I thought that I had slept through the night, but it was really 8 pm. Strange feeling.

Artvoice Festival

Had fun with the boys and company at the festival yesterday. The Steam Donkeys were fun as always. I thought Matthew would like their rockabilly tunes - hopefully he did.

Southernyankee is a total crack-up. We might have to start training her so she builds up a tolerance.

The birds were chirping when I got home this morning. Working on 2 hours of sleep is getting challenging.

Out again

Went to the Pink again last night. I ran into a guy I dated a while back, and it made me wonder why I still haven't figured this whole dating/sex/love thing out yet. I thought by the time you were 25 you were supposed to know everything about everything. To my dismay, I'm pushing 30 and I still don't know what the fuck is going on.

Mike and Jill - I am totally up for some e-stripper dodgeball.

Paul - why don't you want a 2-headed human baby? What's the problem?

Lilho - changes are rough. Take your time and go easy on yourself.

Stepford Wives

Beth and I went to see the new version of the Stepford Wives. I expected the same film as the original, with a few updates. But it had a different spin - actually kind of funny. Nothing spectacular, but fun to watch.

Afterwards we went to the Pink for a drink. Nobody was there yet, but it was nice to sit on the patio. You e-peeps need to get out earlier.

Keeping In Touch

Last night I ran into some old grad student friends that were in town. It was so good to see them. I'm really glad that I became friends with Renee, Lara, and Taylor. And it's so cool that we still talk even after they've all moved to other places - even if it's just once a year.

I downloaded SharpReader and subscribed to the e-strip rss link. It's super easy and really good for reading journals at work. You can go from journal to journal quickly, and it's not as obvious that you're doing non-work-related things.
