weekends and everything else

Met a new person this week from WV. Remembered some things about WV I had forgotten. Went to the museum of TV and Radio for a Muppet 50th Anniversary event. Realized that if I had seen that presentation when I was the age of 9/10ths of the participants, I would have totally tried to become a muppeteer. May still - apparently being tall and goofy helps. I made a brain-sucking evil puppet, which I gave to a kid who really wanted it. I probably should have scared him first, but I did not.

The Giants lost. The Yanks are in a dead heat with the RS, and for the first time since there was a wild card, neither of them have the safety. Ulcer city.

I finished the last book in the War of the Spider Queen sextet. I've been putting it off for a while. I was somewhat disappointed, somewhat glad that it is over. It led me to dealing with some major issues I have about fantasy writing and divinity, which I may tackle tin the future, if I remember to.I am also re-reading Harry Potter on lunch hours, as L. grinds through the backlog to get to the latest book. I need to write in a major way. I have to start bringing my laptop with me everywhere, or maybe get a Treo keypad.

The Dali Lama got a key to the city yesterday. He is 70! Crap, there is going to be some big problems when he dies =/

Big stuff to do this week coming - trying to gather all the data I need to get them done.

I hope the armed attack dolphins train dolphins in the wild, and stage a coup against humanity.

Go and download this rehash of "George Bush Doesn't care about Black People". Seriously, one of the best music videos I've seen in ages.

I had mentioned some purchases upcoming - should I go for one 21" flat screen monitor, or two 19"? I miss having two monitors like a mofo, but refuse to dump a grand on two 21"!

Also - beds - as in buying one. Anyone have any pros/cons of getting a bed with a built in cabinet/side tables vs not? I need end tables for my bedroom, and wouldn't mid having a shelf worked in to the headboard. I am definitely getting a platform bed - I was thinking something like this, this or maybe this. Thoughts, opinions, funny stories?

Goals before Christmas: driver's license and passport renewal. Hopefully, I can knock out the DL by the end of the week! Wednesday I will be dealing with Time Warner, and, hopefully, watching the new Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story (DVD).

I was late this morning! For good reasons, worry not.

i have been resisting the urge to buy that damn DVD at the special DVD store down the block from my place.

its come out soon so i will live.

mmm...production value
i think there might be enough in there for me to pay retail for a dvd. i hate buying media - but i may make the exception here.

the spider queen books.....does that have anything to do with drizz?
Sep. 26th, 2005 04:44 pm (UTC)
the plotline is shared
r.a. salvatore, who wrote the drizzt series came up with the storyline for the series. drizzt is not in it, though some of the other drow from the series are (most notably, gropmph banrae, who is my fav. character outside of jaraxle). if you liked the drizzt books that centered around the drow world, you will love this one.

also, something that cracked my shit up - one of the characters used sneeze's pressure cooker (delayed blast fireball + globe of invulnerabilitry) to smoke a demon. i literally laughed out loud.

yeah you do
i totally figured it out what he was going to do too, when the first offensive spell he cast was dimensional anchor, which prevented the demon from being able to teleport outside of the globe.

In terms of the monitors, I would go for the 21" monitor. I was facing a similar question, but honestly, having a monitor like the Dell 2001fp, that will allow 1600x1200 res seems like a more prudent decision. I'm responding on my BlackBerry, otherwise I would furnish some kind of link. Also, you can get a dell coupon off of eBay that will reduce the price about 20 percent.

thanks man
i'm definitely gonna crunch the numbers. i love me some 1600x1200 (i had 2x 21" crt's in that res) but i have bene surviving at 1200x1024, and i think i might be o.k. with 2 desktops at that size (which still gives me more total real estate). unsure yet - depends on what kind of deals i can swing.

oh man! i LOVE muppets... is it still going on? i need to get me some kermit action. (i was actually more of an Animal girl, myself).
Sep. 27th, 2005 04:30 pm (UTC)
i don't think so
it seemed to be a one day deal - it was not so central muppet centric (As disney now owns the rights to them, henson studios can't even use without permission) but it was neat to see a presentation by a muppeteer.

the only thing i can think that would be negative about a bed with built-ins, is that it might be a bitch to move. but it shore is handy in the meantime.
Sep. 27th, 2005 01:03 pm (UTC)
it may be - my main concern is less with disassembly fr moving, and more with actually having room for the ffer everywhere i move to. i am gonna bite the bullet, after i sort out my other financial obligations.

spanks for the input, you are totally the only one who threw in 2 cents on that.

Re: mm
that's because i'm pretty well the best that i know of.
Sep. 27th, 2005 04:10 pm (UTC)
grinds through the backlog?!?
you make it sound as if I find Harry Potter to be difficult reading! I think "speeds through the backlist" is far more accurate =)

My 10 cents on the bed (yes, I get more than 2): I like the first model pictured, hate the other two - they are gigantic and frankly I don't think they're attractive. I think you should get end tables separately, they're just easier to manage space wise. You have room currently for a gigantic headboard but who know what future apts will bring.

or maybe something like this where the end tables are only semi-attached.

Sep. 27th, 2005 04:22 pm (UTC)
i totally meant "grinds" in terms of the number of pages involved, as opposed to the difficulty of the reading.

i like that bed! i want something with a slightly more detailed headboard, but that one has some promise to it.

why do you get more than two cents?
Sep. 27th, 2005 04:51 pm (UTC)
Re: pfft
If you wanna see me in the bed, I get more than two cents. -L
Sep. 27th, 2005 05:02 pm (UTC)
in that case...

gotta find a red number like that somewhere for you.
