and I went out for dinner with kalmn
. If I'd been smarter I'd have had a smaller and earlier lunch. Portions are somewhat ginormous at Cheesecake Factory
. I finished about half of my dinner and maybe two thirds of my dessert. We also picked up one of monstersocks
' old computers so that we could make sure there's nothing on it that she cares about before disposing of it. (Performa 6500 maybe, I'm guessing it has a 150MHz 603e, its main attribute is the very loud and bassy speaker in it.) It was a little amusing the next night after it was setup in the dining room, monstersocks
turned the TV off with her remote which also turned the computer on.
and I tried to do some furniture shopping (we need new tv/vcr/dvd/receiver/cd/tape/tivo/game furniture) at Buck's and Elements. Found a few basic candidates but it looks like it'll be complicated to find something that meets my functional requirements and her aesthetic requirements. Had dinner at Fuddruckers
(1/2 pound of ostrich) then saw Darkness
. Kind of enjoyable but I don't know if I'd recommend it. There were about fifteen minutes of previews including Sin City (I'd like to see it but I've never read any of the comics), Hitchhiker's Guide (brief teaser, I hope it's good), some Bruce Willis movie that explained the entire plot of the film and Elektra (from the folks what brought you X-Men but no mention of Daredevil).
Today I try to move the living room around to an order that makes more sense to me.
I realized that part of the problem I've been having at my old apartment is that I forget that I need three piles, not two. Instead of "Keep" and "Don't Keep" I need "Keep Close", "Keep In Storage" and "Don't Keep". I think remembering that will help.Interview with some of the people being sued by Apple for leaking beta versions of their next OS
is not very stealthy.
I think that Darkness was kind of interesting but there was a lot of stuff that just didn't really make much sense. Who were the three strange women in the picture? What was the goal of the cult people? Why were the evil things trying to convince them to extinguish the lights when they didn't really seem to need to? Why not move the father off of the huge evil ouroboros
under the floor before the tracheotomoy? At the same time it was also a bit more obvious than I would have liked. There didn't seem to be much suspense about most of what was going on and a lot of it felt fairly cliched. It did a good job of making me feel uncomfortable though.
