What does it say about a generation of men that, when asked, can’t carve a turkey?
With our collective brain power, we got it done, but it was a wee bit messy.
For whatever the reason, my brother and sister-in-law celebrate the American Thanksgiving by having a boatload of people over to eat turkey.
This year I think it was about 40. That includes kids.
All things considered it went off without a hitch.
I don’t think I know 40 people. Let alone invite them over to my house.
I have seating for 11.
Actually, I currently have seating for 7. My brother has four of my chairs.
I should collect those one day.
Watching the end of Hackers. It tried to make hacking cool. Mind you, as any movie that tries to make geeks look cool, it was filled with fancy graphics and a pack of lies.
Didn’t stop me wanting to be like them.
That, and ShadowRun. The Deckers were the ultimate in hackers. They were hard wired into the net, and the game allowed for a great visual representation of networks and security.
Sure, it was a pack of lies, but the general theory was there.
I miss that game. Didn’t play it much but what I did play was a lot of fun.
Sadly, once I moved to Ottawa there wasn’t much gaming going on here.
I tried a few times, but the interest just wasn’t there.
I wonder if I brought it up these days if there would be any interest.
You people know I’m talking about 😛
I think I’m going to scan emusic tomorrow and just download my allotment.
Either that or I loose it.
I’m gonna grab some comedy stuff, but I really want to see if there’s just stuff that I find interesting.
With Pandora, I’ve been mostly listening to metal, and it’s starting to repeat a little too much.
Possibly I should be doing some mix and match.
Maybe the problem is that I’m finicky with music.
When I first joined emusic, the idea was to only download stuff I didn’t have. New stuff.
But I also have this weird thing about downloading a whole CD worth.
Think I covered this already, but if a band can’t put together a full decent CD, then I’m not going to bother.
Could be that I’ll just play HL2:EP1.
Once a week Much Music plays Loud. Basically it’s all heavy metal. Right at the moment, it appears to be death metal of some sort.
I had really thought that crap died.
You know, it wouldn’t be half bad if, as usual, it wasn’t for the utter crap of a singer they have.
OK, so it’s not just the singer in this case.
Both of them…
OK, so here’s the problem with death metal:
Because the singers all sound exactly the same, there’s no easy distinction between groups.
This group sounds just like the last group. Still mostly crappy.
Rogers was selling off some of their anime for cheap, so I picked some up. Patlabor 1 and 2, and Metropolise, for $24 total.
Not bad at all.
