Have a Boy-Wonderful Day!

Thursday, March 31st, 2005

Who takes John Cusack’s height, dark hair, and intelligence Donal Logue’s wiseass sense of humor, and scruffy Celtic cuddliness Diego Luna’s big brown Latin eyes Ewan McGregor’s Doc Marten-wearing Scottish biker-ness and combines them into one loveable geeky package?!

You GO, honey!

Wednesday, March 30th, 2005

Heh. Jeremy Irons. I knew I loved that man for a reason. He’s always spouting off about some hot-button issue or another, and he Just Doesn’t Care. A few weeks ago he was saying that hysteria about protecting The Chillldrunnnn from pedophiles is getting way out of hand (and he’s right, but I’m surprised he […]

Mo’ Birthdays

Tuesday, March 29th, 2005

It’s about that time. Time when we have a near-solid week and a half of nonstop birthdays going on! We kick things off this year with a new one: today is Whistler’s little Mo Monkey’s first birthday! One year ago today I was logged in to Whistler’s blog posting by-the-minute updates. Most people say “time […]

Jesus H. Christ!

Monday, March 28th, 2005

And the H stands for, “Holy hell, what a bad movie!!!” As planned, we had a lot of fun Saturday decorating Peep eggs, chowing down on Middle-Eastern snacks, and watching the “Star Wars:Clone Wars” toons. Then came the main feature, Mel “Raving Nutjob” Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ.” Yikes. However gorey people said this […]

Whole Friday

Friday, March 25th, 2005

Another dreary morning here. BW is home sick with a cold. Later on tho, I’m going out shopping with my Mum, and we’re gonna meet up with Janet at Whole Foods. Poor Janet is a foodie, but she hasn’t been to the WF store since it opened, between her kids and her husband’s wack job […]

I knew that

Thursday, March 24th, 2005

Two out of 3 of my tattoos could sort of be described as tribal, and that’s usually what I like best on other people as well. I am of Tribe Geek, fear me!! You Should Get a Tribal Tattoo! “Primal, earthy, and naturally sexy” Describes both you and your tattoo Subtle tattoo + subtle sensuality […]

On the Bookshelf

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2005

I like to think that the contents of a person’s bookshelf gives a true reflection of their personality. So what are you all currently reading/just finished/gonna read soon? Right now I’m reading “A Game of Thrones” by George RR Martin. It’s a politically-oriented fantasy saga that someone of ascf recommended, and I have to say, […]

I Can Feel it Coming in the Air Tonight

Monday, March 21st, 2005

Finally after long years of my complaining, Miami Vice is out on DVD! First season, anyway, and my copy showed up in the mail on Friday. Ahhhh, time to sit back and bask in the warm 80′s neon sunsets….*sigh* what an awesome show. Sure beats playing GTA:Vice City. Otherwise, my boss is on vacation for […]

Mission Accomplished

Friday, March 18th, 2005

Remember that list of goals for the week I posted on Monday? I managed to do every one of them! (Except watch movies, but I can deal with that tonight.) Go me! Let’s celebrate with a cool glass of Stupid Quiz! Wine ?? Which Alcoholic Drink Are You ?? brought to you by Quizilla

This Ought to make LOUP Happy

Thursday, March 17th, 2005

Got my new issue of Premiere in yesterday, and the cover story was “50 Greatest Movie Stars of All Time.” There was an ok mix of classic and newer people, too heavy on the new for my tastes, and I could quibble over some of the rankings, but overall they did a good job. Greg, […]

Useless Crap, Aisle 7

Wednesday, March 16th, 2005

Want proof that the demise of Western Civilization is not only at hand, but well underway? Flip channels during daytime TV! Yesterday at around 11:35 am I saw an ad for a product so stupefyingly…well, STUPID…it made me question the meaning of life! It was this: a toothbrush sanitizer!! WTF?? Surely, the end is nigh. […]

Evil is Good!

Tuesday, March 15th, 2005

Is it a new slogan handed down from the Dubya regime?? Nah, it’s what I think after watching the Return of the Sith trailer and seeing pics like this….. Mmmmmmm, evil is gooooood. Ani, baby, we knew ya had it in ya. I’ll even forgive you for that “sand is rough” nonsense from Episode II…I […]

Goals for the week

Monday, March 14th, 2005

1. Resolve the never-ending issue between the Incompetent Vendor and the Immovable Library. If unable to resolve, then at least fob off onto somebody else. 2. Get back to working out properly, I’ve been really half-assed since the trip to Loup’s. 3. Do some Jeremy Irons Page updates, maybe makes some wallpapers. 4. Watch more […]

A little downtime

Sunday, March 13th, 2005

You may have noticed yesterday the server was down. Sorry ’bout that, but no need to fear when LK is on the job! All is well again now. (And LK, lemme say again how much I appreciate your conscientiousness and hard work. Good job, Shooter!) BW is home from New Hampshire. He said that things […]

Live Free or Not

Friday, March 11th, 2005

A few months ago, BW and I were feverishly sending out resumes right and left in the thought that, the more you send out, the more chances you have of someone calling back. He sent one for a job posting at Dartmouth College where he’d be administering something called a ‘Beowulf cluster.’ Kick ass name, […]

Captain’s Log, Stardate 3822.05

Thursday, March 10th, 2005

I’ve taken an informal, AIM-based poll of my buds, and Tiberius has won out as the name of my new ‘puter. Thanks for helping everybody! I was leaning that way anyway because, as all geeks know, your hardrive name must have a nice coordinating icon for the desktop and I couldn’t find any Anakin icons […]

3 Extra Inches of Boromir!

Tuesday, March 8th, 2005

No, you pervs! It’s a new computer!

Idle Hands are Diego’s Workshop

Tuesday, March 8th, 2005

Shameful confession time: for the past few weeks I’ve been hanging out on a Diego Luna message board. It’s pretty fun, actually, and one of the things I like best about it is that many of the members enjoy making and sharing fan art stuff like avatars, sig pics, and wallpapers to share with the […]

Preach on, brutha!

Monday, March 7th, 2005

Because it’s Monday and because I’m lazy, I’m just going to treat you to someone else’s rant today. It’s Mr. Cranky, the film critic, ranting about children, and it’s a classic. Much better than anything I could have written anyway. And excerpt: Look, just because some moron is too stupid to watch his children after […]

Whistle While You Work

Saturday, March 5th, 2005

This is already shaping up to be a really nice weekend. The sun is shining (for once), it’s warm enough to go out for a stroll around the ‘hood, right now BW is chilling watching his Invader Zim toons and when he’s done I’m gonna finish up watching Gormenghast. (Mmmmm, Jonathan Ryhs Meyers…) But the […]
