I'm in the future. Like hundreds of years in the future. I've been dead for centuries.
Oh, lovely, you're a cheery one aren't you?

It's A Christmas Migrainicle!

Was going to continue on with Return of the Jedi, but since I bascially can't see, that will have to be postponed a little.

Update: Feeling better.  But this version didn't have the Yub Nub song.

Adventures In Shopping

December 24:

Total Christmas shopping completed to date: Zero.

Doo-de-doo skip out early for a long lunch break.  (Working from home today.)  After tracking down an application failure to a flaky network card on one server in the front-end cluster.
Doo-de-doo buy all the presents.
Doo-de-doo go to bank to do a money transfer.
Doo-de-doo well, crap my phone wipes account details for the money transfer while I'm in line for the teller.
Doo-de-doo hit the supermarket for a few things while I'm there AND THERE'S NO LINE FOR THE CHECKOUT.
Doo-de-doo go home, put the groceries away, get the transfer details again.
Doo-de-doo back to the bank.
Doo-de-doo buy one last present and some wrapping paper.
Doo-de-doo hit the other supermarket for a few other things while I'm there AND AGAIN THERE'S NO LINE FOR THE CHECKOUT.


The mall was busier than an average Thursday, but the stores had enough staff on that everything was flowing more smoothly than average.  Except for the extended family groups with strollers and whatnot that would enter a store and stop dead right inside the doorway as though they'd just suffered a collective aneurysm.

Don't do that.  Don't be that extended family.

42 Days Of Summer

It's the middle of December, and that means it's school holidays for six weeks, and that means I get to listen to my neighbours' twelve kids (possibly more, but I've counted twelve in one place) scream incessantly for the next forty-two days, unless it rains heavily or SMOD comes to release me.

This year I've decided to interleave the shrieking with watching a bunch of movies that I had meant to watch but somehow never got around to.  One a day, and write a review the same day.  I'm already a couple of days behind - I had meant to start on Thursday, the day school got out - but here goes.

And I picked a great one to start with.  Yep.
