The Village

Everyone is talking about young Opie’s daughter. She was great. The movie was a bit goofy in spots, but it was fun. Glad I went. Want to see it again just to see what’s what in yet another twisty shamalamadingdong flick.

Manchurian Candidate

I got mixed reviews from friends on this movie, but I went anyway. It wasn’t memorable, but I did enjoy it.

Cocktails under a microscope

Well, maybe not a microscope. I didn’t bother to read all the background on how it’s done. All I know, thanks to MC’s EW review, is these images of drinks like Tequila Sunrise are pretty amazing. Check out the whole cocktail collection.


My first summer in SLO, a friend’s roommate had her car break down while driving home. She was scared to death, and called us for help. So, of course, I rushed out to save her racing :) along at 85-90 mph along hwy 101. I explained this to the CHP officer who pulled me over for speeding. He wrote me up for a much lower speed, and said I should have just called the CHP. Duh. So, to Max (Jamie Foxx) — you should have used your cell phone battery time to call 911 first!! If you had, you would have gotten the ‘o’.

eVoting is wonderful

I didn’t want to post this too close to sysadmin day, but guys!! Come on! You manage eVoting servers and you lost your backups!! Good ‘ol Florida.


I love blondestar (mp3 file)


Does four of a kind beat a flush? Hmm. I think it does. Oh yeah it does! Maybe a flush beats a flush according to these guys? Nope, strange. Oh, wait. Over here is a list of “almost universally accepted hands”. I’m sure they’ll have a flush beating 4 of a kind. Oh, wait. The 4 of a kind does beat a flush here too. Whatever. I just glad I still have 30 minutes of my Friday night to enjoy with Carol!

Bubble Wrap Heaven

I think I’ve seen this before, but this version uses big bubble wrap and has a better sound effects. snaps to iendo! Late Breaking News – Be sure to get at least one “Fresh Sheet”.

Bourne Supremacy

Mike, Sean and I had some great Thai food Friday night at a place called Torung in Hollywood. It’s got a B rating, but not to worry. The food is spicy enough, any vermin would surely be killed. Unless they are thai vermin. Hmmm. Nonetheless, I agree with, 9.5/10. Great food, good service, and btw, citysearch insider’s are clueless… parking at Mobil across the street is paid for by the restaurant. If you don’t see street parking right way, Torung insider’s know to go to the mobil.

Oh, the movie was good too. The Dome was awesome as always.


I laughed. Most of the time, the laughs were more forced than during the recent classic, Dodgeball. Still, I laughed.
