Mar 07 2000

Not too much to report. I finally got my Weather Tracker fully installed. It’s great, except that the monitor is slowly but surely freaking out on me. I’ll post more on that soon.

Now, as some of you might be able to guess from reading this diary, anime is one of my passions. As such, over the past few months I’ve been collecting anime cels, or the actual original artwork used in the series. I’ve collected all of the cels that I want, except one: I want a cel of Little Washu from Tenchi Muyo!. Well, I found one on eBay. Unfortunately, it’s currently going for USD $155. It’s also, in a word, perfect:

As you can see from my March 2nd update, I don’t have too much cash on-hand to spend. Sure, I could spend USD $150 on this cel and have $50 left over, but that $50 would have to last me for three weeks. I have several anime series that I want to try out, too, and that’ll cost money. Arrrrgh.

Well, in other news, I’ve been building bird houses lately. I want to do a lot of bird-oriented stuff this year; I plan to build several bird houses, and maybe put up a suet feeder or two. About.com’s Guide to Birding has provided a great place to start.

And speaking of About.com, I just got my latest bonus check. I’m getting about USD $500 a month from them now. Not half bad.

I did run across a fabulous spoof of Slashdot, ApostropheColon. It hits the /. nail on the head.

And I’ve got new photos on You Must Be Kidding Me, incidentally.
