I am no longer maintaining this blog. However, I have started a new blog that is specifically about Mac OS X.

If you're interested, please visit it at The Mac Tuner.

Thank you.


Wow, it seems like a friggin' year since I've posted anything. Well I'm back, sort of. Okay, not really. Just another entry while our database is down... I don't have internet in my new place (yeah, I moved recently). Yet. Too many expenses lately and my cheapskate landlords won't lift a finger. I'm thinking of reporting them, since they won't even give me a receipt or take a cheque for the rent. ("Pay cash, no tax").

My new job is okay, I work in Photoshop all day. It gets repetitive though. There are advantages to working here, for example last Thursday I got 4, yes FOUR, free passes to movies. They are: It's All Gone Pete Tong, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Batman Begins, and The Perfect Man. I am not sure if I'll see The Perfect Man, maybe for Hillary D--- err I mean Heather Locklear.. hehehe... ;) Is Hillary Duff 18 yet? hmmm. Remember that countdown clock to the Olsen twins 18th birthday?

Another cool thing I found is www.audioscrobbler.com, which tracks your mp3 listening habits and generates top-ten type lists for you, as well as recommending other music based on your preferences. Very cool. If you happen to check it out, I'm wookielove. http://www.audioscrobbler.com/user/wookielove


I haven't written anything for a long time.

So much going on.. I don't have time to write about it here. Ironic isn't it? When I have nothing to say, I've all the time to write.

Anyways, I think the most ludicrous CD ever made is Beck's Midnite Vultures. It's inane. Listening to it now... Why did I ever buy it?

I am working... it's 7:30pm! Why am I still at work? Because it passes the time, that's why! I have two friggin' days left to kill. Friday night could be the night to end all night... it could change the rest of my life! But maybe nothing at all will happen. I just can't wait. And probably nobody knows what the heck I'm talking about, except for me... and maybe one other person.

Some woman just called my office begging me for a favour.. But I'm very busy so I was hesitating...
"Can you put me on your 'to do' list?" she asked.

Hmm, I hope she didn't hear me snicker =)


Here's an interesting paradox: Today I am uncomfortable because I am very comfortable. Yes, today is Friday, customarily "jeans day" at the office. No, not "casual day" as some places call it. Since I have dance class right after work, I thought I'd try dressing in my dance gear (t-shirt, adidas track pants), to save a couple of minutes. Ahhh, I feel sleek and sporty. Comfortable. But when I arrived at work, I had the sudden self-conscious feeling that I was underdressed. By a mile. Now I feel uncomfortable walking among the undead here, in their jeans and tucked-in polo shirts... Oh well, it's Friday.


Michael Moore's Stupid White Men, describes "Mad Cow" disease as the biggest threat to the human race -- bigger than AIDS. Like little zombies, the mad cow pathogens "cannot be killed, because they're already dead." So how can science cure Mad Cow?

Moore's passage itself did not shake me to the bone. But the dramatic reading of it by the narrator of an audiobook, a.k.a. book-on-tape, did. You see, while I was at work listening to my cow-orkers shared iTunes music selections, I stumbled upon this recording, and, in effect, "read" over half the book. Hey, I thought, what a great way to get some reading done. So last night, off I went to the local library to find some books on CD. Yes, I assumed there are books on CD. "Books on Tape" is just a term handed down from the days when cassettes roamed the Earth like Ptyranydons... so I thought.

My assumption explains why the librarian seemed baffled by my request. Why would anyone under forty still have a cassette player? This is the conversation that transpired:

Me: Hi, where are you audiobooks?

Librarian: They're right over there... you mean books on tape?

Me: Yup.

Librarian: Books on tape?

Me: Yup.

Librarian: I'll show you... [leads me to section clearly marked "Audiobooks"] You mean these?

Me: Yup.

Librarian: Books on tape?

Me: Yes, thanks.

Librarian: Okay...

Of course, I don't have a tape deck. Not one currently connected to my stereo, anyway. So, I borrowed some books that are actually compatible with my bio-technology: paper books that I can read with my eyeballs. Hooray for libraries!


My English prof would say that ascribing to a dog vocabulary is a form of anthropomorphism.

This just in! The word 'Anthropomorphism' was invented by people who just wanted to demonstrate their understanding of the word 'anthropomorphism'.
