Blue Line Swinger

First thing I did this morning was do housecleaning on the chromewaves server. greatly simplified my file architecture, erased a bunch of files that were doing nothing. Just tidying up as befits a Saturday morning.

I started watching The Negotiator on TBS but decided that sitting through three hours of a TBS-ised film was probably not going to be much fun. I am going to rent the film, probably tonight as nothing else is going on, because the 40 minutes or so that I did watch were pretty engrossing.

Went out with Vic to do some shopping after that. First to the Hairy Tarantula because Vic needed his comic fix… man – it’s been a while since I’ve been in a hardcore comic store. My usual stop is pretty neutral, the staff mostly indifferent to their wares. But the guys (and clientele) at this place? Whoa. talk about stereotypes and cliches come to life. I think back to my days as a regular at Target Comics in Oakville, and all I can say is there but for the grace of God go I. I discovered bathing at just the right time, I think.

Then it was wandering around the Eaton Centre while he shopped for Christmas gifts for Liz. A month to go and the mall is already getting stupid. No clue what to get people this year, as with every year. Only guarantee is that I’ll be waiting till the last minute and my dad won’t ever use whatever I get him anyway.

Vic did take the time to show off his shiny iBook. I will be the first to admit it, it’s an impressive little hunk of technology. If I weren’t firmly entrenched as a Windows user, I’d be sorely tempted. But fact is, I can’t be arsed to switch OSs for whatever reason. Bouncing icons be damned. But using Sherlock to get local movie times and view trailers and synopses? Cooool.

No interesting plans for the evening, I’ll probably just go rent some movies, I’d like to see all of The Negotiator, and sit around on my ass. Crappy take-out is in order for dinner.

Once again, I did not make it up to the Annex to unload my CDs. But at least now I have something to do tomorrow…
