OK, the web-based interface is back in business. I hate it when that happens. I spent all night last night on the phone with Saalon, chatting about Star Trek: Voyager and Babylon 5 and Tenchi Muyo! and short films and digital camcorders and all sorts of other cool stuff. I’ve been tempted to buy a Canon GL1 (check out the CNET review); it’s pricey at around USD $2,000, but it’s a professional-quality […]

And now the web-based interface to my diary is eating my updates. Lovely. Went to a graduation party last night for Erin Smith, a friend. After the main party we played Nurts (a multiplayer solitaire game), went out to see Keeping the Faith — which I liked quite a bit, incidentally — and went to Don Paulo’s for some Mexican food. After having surprising difficulty explaining that I wanted chicken in my tacos (“I’ll have chicken.” […]

Spent a bit of time last night in my garden, putting in a third post and hanging pots from same. I also dug out a few old stumps in the area that will be a pool, as soon as we run electricity out and I buy some extra pond liner. I even managed to yank the skin off of a blister I didn’t know I had. Hey, it’s a red badge of courage. I also — finally — e-mailed all of my Informant […]

Hmmmm, only one week between updates. All righty then. The BeOS board game is progressing nicely in the design stages. It’s based on the rules for Combat Chess II, but modified a little bit. We’ll see how that progresses. I’ve been informed that I may have to work over the weekend. Ugh. And I just got my pond kit in the mail, and my Dad wanted me to help him stain the hosue. Lovely. […]

Here at the fountain’s sliding foot,Or at some fruit-tree‘s mossy root,Casting the body’s vest asideMy soul into the boughs does glide;There, like a bird, it sits and sings,Then whets and claps its silver wings,And, till prepared for longer flight,Waves in its plumes the various light.— Andrew Marvell, Thoughts in a Garden, from The Golden Treasury I’ve finally completed the majority of the gardening that I wanted to do, though of course, There Is Still Much To Do. I’ve […]

Two-week gap? What two-week gap? I don’t see…oh. Seriously, oops. For some reason I totally forgot about this page. Or, when I was remembering it, I didn’t actually bother to upate it (hi, Brennen!). I’ve been watching a lot of anime lately, for some reason. From Gundam Wing at midnight on Cartoon Network, to Macross Plus on DVD (volumes 1 and 2), to formulating ideas for an anime-style direct-to-video miniseries. (Yes, I know […]
