Going to go see Spider Man II Monday afternoon. I've been saying for a few months that despite my general aversion to seeing sequels (I refuse to see Shrek II, for instance, despite counting Shrek as one of my favourite movies of all time), that I think I can trust the Spider Man people not ...
I've been listening to some Jazz music as I work here, and one of Ella Fitzgerald's songs had a little riff on "Plymouth Rock landed on them". It stopped me working because the riff seemed so cheerful I couldn't reconcile it with the Malcom X version (which is very full of angst and outrage). Still, ...

So, I'm up fairly early (despite not being able to sleep at all last night) with the intention of; getting in 3/4 of a day's work before 6pm, going to Aaron's show this evening (I'm actually RSVP'd for a Barbeque @ the neighbours, but Aaron's showing is a one-time thing IIUC), hitting the hay ASAP ...
Yesterday marked Shane's introduction to the Real Time Strategy (RTS) game genre. Mark, Dave and I have been playing Red Alert II for quite some time, and Praveen and Vivek had previous RTS experience (I think), but Shane has been a First Person Shooter (FPS), particularly a Quake III, devotÃ© and has previously rejected our ...
