Happy New Year!

Going to go see MaryAnn and Terri in a bit. We’re slated to attend a showing at (of?) the Improv Olympics at around 8 PM. Not sure where we’re headed afterwards, or what we’re going to do. I know of a party Justin invited me to, so that’s definitely a potential place to go – we’ll see what everyone feels…

Another Resolution

I’ve gotta find a better navigation system. Spent a bit of time looking today, and I’m still not sure what the approach is going to be. My guess is that another language will have to be involved, so I think it’s going to be a matter of picking maybe ASP or PHP. Actually, this whole damn blog needs a redesign….

You Won’t Believe This

Alright, when I got back home from Christmas, my parents armed me with a wide assortment of food: take out friend rice from the restaurant, along with a few packages of frozen dumplings: And, truth be told, they’re quite good. A bit like precooked sausages, in concept. These frozen dumplings (I believe) are mostly cooked – so all you do…

Lunch in Chinatown

We had a half day at work today, and I left to meet up with my sister (Stacey) and her boyfriend (Shane) for lunch in Chinatown. As I mentioned, the two of them are here to see Umphrey’s McGee at The Vic. What I didn’t know was that they had first seen this band when they were newcomers, around 1998,…

Another Reason Why I Love My Job

This whole week (and last week) has been incredibly dead at the office. No one around, and no calls coming in because everyone is gone! Ben ran some errands today, and hit the local music store. Since the Merchandise Mart is rearranging a lot of the first floor shops, several places are either moving or closing up for good. One…

Golden Showers (Not What You Think)

Ben and I talked shop a bit during work, and he told me about a site he came across a while back. Apparently, the guy who did this video contacted him, and he found out about this band. Their name, oddly enough, is "Golden Showers." The best quotation of the day? Ben looks at me, and in all seriousness says…

I was surfing around today, and on infourm.com I came across this Flash animation. From what I understand, it’s a bit old… but it still rocked.

Busy Week

My sister and her boyfriend are in town for a few days, staying with a friend. They’re all planning to see Umphrey’s McGee, at The Vic. Both shows, actually. They had asked me along, and I was tempted (I figured hell, they’re driving all the way up here just to see this band – there’s gotta be something there). But…

Chinese Scientists Construct Boxing Robot

Thanks to Mr. Grumpy for sending along this article. Talk about leaving a reader just hanging… you’d think there’d at least be a picture or something! Oddly, there’s a tie in here with poetry. Matt and I talked yesterday, and our writing plans have fallen in light of the holidays. But, undaunted, we’re looking to regroup and continue the poem-a-day…

Resolutions

Sure, sure. Like everyone else, I’ve been thinking about all the things I’d like to change: how I think, how I interact and treat others, and how I live. And, like everyone else, I also find New Year’s Resolutions to be an artibitrary thing. But even though it’s a symbolic event (the stroke of midnight), this is not to say…
