Back From the Movies

Just got back from the theatres where a couple friends and I watched Star Wars Episode III. Overall a pretty decent movie. For about 90% of the time the acting was plain terrible; the special effects and action made up for most of it. In any case, I just wanted to see it because it rounds out the series for me. I have episodes 4, 5, and 6 at home which I’ve watched a couple times and episode 3 does explain some of things that I’ve been wondering about. So in the regard, it has satisfied me. I’ll probably have to watch the three that I have again soon as I’ve forgotten much of them.

Actually I was debating whether I should even bother writing something here right now. I’d much rather sleep and could probably use it but I felt like I needed to update what has been going on. This long weekend I do plan to get several things done in here. I want to get my future digital home post written up. It’s basically going to be about what position I would like to see computers take in the home in the (near) future. It may be a fairly extensive writeup so I may need to split it into two parts. Also I want to get some photos taken and a rough outline done for my Zen Micro review. In addition, I’ll post up anything I happen to think of as the weekend progresses. It promises to be a fairly good one, although the weather’s been crappy and will continue to be, if the weatherman is to be trusted.

In any case, I really do need some sleep; so until a bit later today, toodles.



I remember back a few years ago, a few friends and I thought it would be cool to be nocturnal for a few days. Of course, that was when we were in bed by 10:30 on weeknights. Now, without even trying, it seems like I’m slowly turning into a night creature. It’s almost 1:00AM here and I’m looking longingly at my bed from the computer chair. I can feel it; it’ll be a good sleep tonight. But not yet, I’ve still got things to do and stuff to worry about. I really don’t think it’s very healthy. =P

So about my day. Well after our morning performance, I didn’t go home. A bunch of us went to Victoria Park and had a good time under the blazing sun. It was one of the best days I’ve seen in a long while. The winters here really get to you. I managed to get a sunburn (mostly on my face) and multiple grass stains on my pants after rolling around a bit. After getting something to eat, I eventually found myself back at the Confederation Centre preparing for our first evening show. As predicted, it was an exciting show. Everything went extremely well except for the curtain calls. It started off fine, but after the first bounce we messed up the ending and the second time they bounced it, we were in a general state of confusion. It must have made for an entertaining scene for the audience. =D

Only one more show to go. I intend to get some work done tomorrow during the day since after the evening show, I’ll be out late at our first official musical party. It should be good times!


[edit]Oh it took me 11 minutes to write this post, hence my reference to the ‘it’s almost 1:00AM here’…
