Morning

Well, I went to sleep in the buff and was really hesitant to step foot out of the bed. Thankfully, it’s a very warm day so far. I’ve got the heat cranked, and it’s been fairly comfortable overall. Made some breakfast, coffee, watched a bit of TV. Began this entry into the blog. One thing I’ve discovered so far: paying…

Backstory

Last week, I lost a bet to my friend Juliet. I got cocky, and felt I was the better pinball player. A bunch of us had been playing games throughout the night, and gauging from my prior scores… I thought I could win. I thought wrong. Now, I have to go through the next twenty-four hours, sans clothes. For a…

Nearly Naked

Well, the time is close approaching. Tomorrow, I pay up for that bet I lost to Juliet about a week ago. As it stands, I will have to be sans clothes for 24 hours. Joy. As you’ve probably surmised, I’m going to be spending the day at home. I got a few movies, just in case it’s painfully cold. My…

Where’d the Day Go?

Worked on my portfolio site a bit. Amazingly, I got little done but the day just sorta shot by. Hopefully tomorrow will be more productive. Uhm… despite the… nakedness. Yeah.

Strange Game – the Only Winning Move is Not to Play

Watched Wargames today, as a sort of lunch break from the computer. Got the DVD when I ran some errands this morning. Enjoyable, and a nice "ah, I remember this" sort of movie. But now that I’ve watched it again, almost ten years after it came out… Stephen Falken sorta creeped me out. When he goes into that dissertation about…

Sam

Tonight, as I was getting a 12 pack of Bass, I learned that Sam is at home, recovering. From OPEN HEART SURGERY. On top of that, I learned it was a QUINTUPLE BYPASS! Sam’s a good guy, from the occasional talks I’ve had with him… I like him a great deal. And not just because he provides me my beer…

Whew!

Work went from meh to holy jebus, towards the end there. Just got back home about 20 minutes ago, and it’s closing in on midnight already. One small thing led to another… throw in a lot of waiting time for some weird permissions problems to get resolved long-distance, and here I am. Tonight’s gonna be more linkage than verbiage, I’m…

Twisted IX

These came in yesterday, and today I wore my t-shirt like a high schooler. I have to admit – I’m a fan of Rey’s decision to go with a less prominent logo on the shirt. On the back, there’s the standard station/Q101 identity… but the main focus of the shirt is fairly nondescript. Rey felt that people would gravitate towards…

Russian Ark

Saw this on k10k, a site that I’ve only just today started to peruse. There a ton of sites that other designer friends I know seem to frequent – I think I’ve gotta make the rounds and expand my set of URLs that I visit frequently. Apparently, the entire movie is one continuous shot!

Happy Tree Friends: Kringles

I warn you now, fully and up front. It’s terrible and just really, really wrong. But funny as hell. Kringle Karoling is my favorite. I’ve watched it like five or six times so far.
