Beware… I live.

Yes, I admit it’s been a while since I’ve done a post with actual happenings and whatnot. It’s actually been relatively busy here with work and other things, and haven’t had much motivation to actually post. So, consider this something of a potpourri/miscellaneous post. I might start posting regularly later… but then, I might not.

I finally bit the bullet, and went to see Transformers on Thursday. This will probably shock a few people, as they would have expected me to see it the day it came out. Truth be told, I’m not much for going to see movies on my own and really didn’t have anyone to go with. That said… I really really liked it. It’s definitely one to get on DVD when it comes out. I suppose my only complaint is that we didn’t get to see enough of the interaction between the Decepticons. Otherwise, it was well worth seeing.

Actually, I went onto the iTunes Store on Friday to see if the score for the Transformers movie was available. Unfortunately, all they had was the soundtrack, which I wasn’t too keen on. However, they DID have the soundtrack from the 1986 animated movie, in a new edition that included four more of Vince DiCola’s instrumental incidental music. I went ahead and picked that up instead, but will be keeping an eye out for the score in the next few weeks…

Last night we went to PF Chang’s, as it was my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary and they wanted to celebrate. I mainly went because I was going to act as a designated driver. The food was pretty good as always. My only real complaint came near the end, and it had nothing to do with the restaurant itself. Mom had ordered some peach tea but had neglected to say she wanted it iced… so it arrived as hot tea. She ended up cooling it off by pouring it into the glass her second margarita was in. Then she reached over for her glass of water, and started scooping up water and ice to put in to continue to cool it off. At least, she THOUGHT it was her glass of water… until I finally could work up the words through my indignation to splutter, “Excuse me… that’s MY water!” Of course, that drove Mom and Dad into a fit of laughter…

As for today, it’s been rather quiet. I spent a good chunk of the afternoon down in the kitchen on my PowerBook; it had been a couple of months since I last used it. I still need to replace the keyboard on it, as the spacebar is still wonky and only works part of the time. I can get a new one off eBay at some point; I definitely can’t justify the cost of a new laptop at this point, especially as the PowerBook still works fine for personal use, and for work use I have the company-provided Dell. Otherwise, I spent the day catching up on sleep, and spent the evening watching Cops and playing Gears of War.

As for the rest of this week… well, I’m not sure what I have planned. Personally, the only project I have to do is to update the SSL certs on the server. As far as work goes, I probably have a number of things that need to be done, but they’re probably not all that pressing and I can deal with them as they come. Hopefully I can spend the time needed for sleep and rest (unlike the past couple of weeks), but otherwise… we’ll see how things go.

One thought on “Beware… I live.”

  1. Wonky, huh? Stealing my word there. Or did I pick it up from you and not realize it? I just know that I use it an awful lot. I love you.
