  • 10:37 Canada Post is killing me. $12.71 to send a paperback to BC? There has to be a better option ... #
  • 17:40 Just heard a horrible cover of 'Enjoy the Silence' - I wish I knew who it was so I could send hate mail. #

  • 11:02 Wish I'd been able to stay home today. There's really not a whole lot going on. #
  • 13:26 Yay! I are getting all of Wednesday off. Now I don't mind that I worked Saturday night so much; that's where the hours are coming from. ;) #
  • 15:06 From an email friend: tinyurl.com/94r9vg -- so beautiful to see these families, so painful to think they might be severed. #

  • 10:51 Don't think I'm leaving the house today. Which is a shame, as there is no cake here. Or pie. Or even chocolate. #
  • 16:52 (Which wasn't so great.) #
  • 16:54 It's not necessarily such a concession to list names in alphabetical order when YOUR last name starts with 'A', Woody. #
  • 18:24 Hey, Tony Head is in this movie! #
  • 18:27 Okay, this is a pretty decent movie. Woody Allen hasn't lost it in the slightest. #
  • 18:31 Moving on to 'Match Point'. Scarlet Jo. isn't such a great actress, but hell, in Woody Allen films it's all about the dialogue anyway. #
  • 18:47 I just want to be able to tell stories this well through dialogue. Let's not even talk about how amazing a director he is ... #
  • 19:50 Interesting viewing this movie and thinking of 'Crimes and Misdemeanors'. #
  • 07:42 Aaaaand, it's Monday. Not fair in the slightest. #

If you're of the proper bent ...

... to enjoy the humourous side of Edgar Allen Poe:

LITERARY LIFE OF THINGUM BOB, ESQ.

Just thought some of you might enjoy it as much as I do. You might note that the final paragraph is where I stole the text that I use in my two forearm tattoos -- and I think that for all of the tone of the overall piece, that particular text has a serious meaning for Poe, as well.

  • 11:35 I just ordered the D&D 4E core rulebooks -- you guys better be serious about playing ... #
  • 14:26 Watching "For Your Eyes Only" and playing video games ... ah, Sir Roger Moore. #
  • 14:29 "I've looked forward to this moment, Mr. Bond. I intend to enjoy it to the fullest." #
  • 14:32 It's Sir Roger Moore, Topol and Julian Glover on a collision course with WACKINESS! #
  • 16:50 And now I've moved on to Moonraker ... #
  • 16:52 Man, this has to be the most whacked-out Bond movie, with the most whacked-out theme song. #
  • 07:35 And now Saturday: wherein I have to work from 9 until midnight, at the least. #

  • 10:27 I may actually make it out of here by noon, if I'm lucky. Now, better choice for picking up last-minute groceries: Longos or Dominion? #
  • 10:27 (The Longos is right here, and in the PATH so not many people are probably around. Dominion will be busier, but better selection.) #
  • 22:28 Merry Day Off, all, and to all a good rest of the week! (Aw, who am I kidding. I'll be back in the morning.) #

Okay ...

... yes, it's fairly embarrassing that my last seven LJ entries have been automatic Twitter updates.

Meanwhile, happy holiday-of-your-choice-or-even-just-days-off to all, and to all a good nightday!

  • 13:51 Damn I want D&D 4E.
    Damn I want people to play D&D 4E with. #
  • 14:15 @warrenellis Truly, this is a sign that the End has Come. #
  • 14:52 Nothing like last-minute application testing to make the season bright! And I get to work on Saturday night! #
  • 14:55 So far, only two people have said they rec'd my cards. Either I, or Canada Post, took too damn long? #
  • 15:03 @ywgdana Heh, you were one of the two. :P #
  • 15:18 @bunneh Cool ... I'll have to think about getting the 3-pack if I want to DM ... and I don't know a writer who doesn't. ;) #

  • 16:55 @MaryRajotte *drools* #
  • 16:56 @bunneh Okay, well it'd probably be until after the new year anyway before I could afford the books, but I'd definitely be up for it! #
  • 20:57 @leo979 And if we do that zombie play, I could write the manuals off as research! #
  • 20:58 @noncaptatmuscas *snickers* #
  • 20:59 @noncaptatmuscas Me me me! *waves hand frantically* #
  • 21:00 You realize, of course, that I'll buy all the manuals and none of you D&D folks will be able to find a good night to game. :P #
  • 06:58 I'm at work, rocking some BNL and cranking out test files. #

  • 12:26 @pranada I'm fine, just don't have quite enough wiggle room for the tickets yet ... #
  • 13:16 @scattermymirror Good deal. What kind? #
  • 15:29 @lindentree Ran down an eldery grandmother? #

  • 17:41 At Greenavi Cafe (greenavi.ca) waiting for director. If you're in TO and don't know this place, you should. #
  • 17:49 I swear, every time I sit down to revise something, I can't for the life of me figure out how I came up with it. Unless it sucks. #
  • 19:02 Good meeting with director. Now I have to do the rewrites, dammit. #
  • 20:35 Here's something you don't know about me: live enactments of RHPS annoy the hell out of me. Just the idea, much less the implementation. #
  • 20:36 I'll bet they annoy the hell out of Richard O'Brien, too, but he's got his royalty cheques to pacify him. #
  • 21:01 @wigu NEW WIGU COMIC! WE DEMANDS IT! To hell with the T-shirt orders, man, seriously. ;) #
  • 21:19 Despite the fact that I was meeting tonight about another play, I can't wait for Sunday and the first Nefarious readthrough! #
  • 21:19 Which reminds me, the good Doctor should be doing some updates this week ... to his blog and his Twitter ... #
  • 00:03 @noncaptatmuscas That's kind of a shame, really. I want everyone to be as grumpy as I am. :D #
  • 00:07 @MaryRajotte Awww. :) #
  • 00:09 @lindentree Am I one of the people? Or was that a few days ago that I left you some comments? ;) #

Fire at Durham Region Humane Society

I keep crying every time I read it, just at the thought, but:

http://www.citynews.ca/news/news_30193.aspx

Mostly posting it because there's a link to donate at the bottom of the story. If you have any idea what a razor's edge most animal shelters tread as it is, you'll know how hard it's going to be for them to rebuild. If you can give them a few bucks, please do so.
