It's cold outside, there no kind of atmosphere...

Bought the Red Dwarf Series I and II DVDs on the weekend and have spent most of my free time watching them over the last few days. The extras are pretty good (the Smeg-ups are, of course, the best; but others are also worth watching -- deleted scenes, full version of Toungue Tied, Japanese dub of The End). Mostly, though, I've just been re-watching all the episodes. It's been a couple of years since I last had a little marathon of Red Dwarf, and I haven't watched the earliest episodes in even longer. Can't wait for them to realease the rest of the serieses (seri?...egh, seasons) on DVD...my VHS tapes of KCTS marathons just don't cut it anymore. And then, of course, there's the movie I'm keeping an eye on. Not yet filming, but it sounds like they're getting close!

Mmm...cd shopping. A&B just recently lowered their prices, and that coincided nicely with my finally being employed. I had forgotten the joy of opening a new cd package...removing the srhink wrap...popping it in the player and skipping over all the songs you haven't heard yet to get to the ones you've listenend to countless times on the radio. Then finally getting around to listening to the rest of the cd when it's playing and the FF button is too inconvenient, then finding there's another 2 or 3 songs you absolutely love, and hope they never release on the radio so they won't get overplayed.

Too tired for witty title

Higgs Boson -- You are crazy and wacky and nobody
really understands you. Theoretically your
humor gives the universe mass and existence,
but the explanation as to how this all works is
still in the works.

Just got home from watching "Cabin Fever". Horror film afficionados: see this film! I won't do a full review here, as I don't want to ruin the film for anyone...but suffice it to say it's capital-G-Good. Lion's Gate Films comes through yet again with a horror film that manages to scare, startle and gross you out. Best yet, it makes you let down your guard with funny moments, only to scare the bejeezus out of you seconds later. Classic!

And this from Peter Jackson: "Brilliant! Fantastic! Horror fans have been waiting years for a movie like Cabin Fever. I loved it!"

(mental note...do not open the official movie site in a background window and forget about it. Scary music and people talking coming out of nowhere when you're already on edge...well, I guess I didn't need those heartbeats I just skipped).

more time wasting....

According to my calculations; You are "Type O"! Eating wise; The original blood type diet of the Earth are the "hunter- gatherers". The Os are like sharks. They can eat tin cans and rubber tires, and wash it
down with hard liquor while smoking a cigarette. Of course, this is not true, but a dramatic exaggeration. Nevertheless, Type Os have the highest threshold for abuse of any other blood group, and in the final analysis, it is another reason they live longer.

I bet that I can guess youre blood type. See if I can? (Actual Research Based)

Buffy Withdrawal

Bree, you give me so many good ways to waste my time. Ah, interweb.

season 03
Season Three - A lot of people say that you're the
best, and who could really argue - you're
pretty, witty, and you've got one of Buffy's
best adversaries: the Mayor. Pound for pound,
you're why so many people love Buffy.

Went golfing for the first time ever today. Of the 38 lab people there, I managed the worst score. Go me! Luckily my boss (whom I was teamed with) has a good sense of humour and didn't mind the occasional punt, toss and slapshot. In fact, he's thinking of recruiting me for hockey based on my golf game.

However, getting up at 4am yesterday (conference in Seattle) and walking around for 4hours in the hot sun today is catching up with me. I think it's just about beddie-by time.
