2007-08-28 My friend is cool [15:40] Adridne: but then, i agree with an ex-roommate that at the end of crouching tiger, hidden dragon, the girl jumps off of the bridge and wishes to be transported to the desert to be with her lover.

[15:40] Adridne: he's crying because he has to walk back.

2007-08-15 Yeah, but how fast is it?

Once upon a time, I understood desktop terminology pretty well. My parents would be all, "Does it have a em bees? I hear that a lot of em bees make it go faster." and I'd be all "Er... the number of megabytes a computer has could refer to either hard drive capacity or to memory... " &c.

These days, though, it all just looks like an incomprehensible string of numbers. Whenever I get paid for Oleanna (and, by the way, Triton gave me a raise!!!) I'm buying a ... more->

2007-08-02 My (ex-) Bicycle

So, last Saturday my friend Ahn came over around 12:30, walked past my bicycle, and mentioned it to me. When she left, around 2:00 or so, there was no bicycle there, and my lock was lying on the ground in two pieces. Boo.
