Oh, and one more thing.

Franz Ferdinand is right.

It’s always better on holiday
So much better on holiday
That’s why we only work when we need the money

Of course, out of context, but isn’t that the best way to quote people?

Season's Greetings

And I am in the middle of Box Hell at the moment. I thought it would be a good idea to take off until the 9th and get unpacked. Yes, I know I bought the place over a year ago.

However, I’ve got some neat ideas for layouts and as a result, I now have a desk in my bedroom for my laptop. Which is nice. Now all I have to do is label more boxes, and set some of them aside for trash, eBay, or Goodwill.

When I’m done, all I’ll have to do is get kitchen and bathroom renovations approved by the Condo Association, find someplace to live for how long it takes, and then have a housewarming party with staggered dates so that it’s not too large for the space that I have.

But first, these boxes.

I wonder.

Cruising the best Best Buy and looking at DVDs.

“Oh man. Rock and Rule is out on DVD. Do you think it’s as good as we remember it being?”
“I don’t know. What do you remember?”
“Well, I remember one of the characters snorting coke out of a ring on his finger.”
“Well then, it’s as good as you remember.”

Ah, the 80s. On the other hand, I think every movie had a coke snorting badguy in it, so I guess I’ll have to wait and see. Speaking of snorting coke, I saw the Miami Vice: THE MOVIE trailer before I saw King Kong.

And now, bonus Peter Jackson’s King Kong Movie Review Haiku

Great special effects
It’s a very big picture
To me, it felt long

Good job, Browncoats

So, I tried to pick up a copy of Serenity both today and yesterday.

Loh suh. Completely sold out.

I guess I’ll try further afield, but knowing the fanbase, I reckon it’ll probably be sold out anywhere I go.

Why don’t things go smooth?

Why there are rules

Call it what you want, the “Yankee Swap,” “Dirty Santa,” “Grinch Exchange,” or “Thieving Secret Santa.” If the party last night was any indication, “White Elephant” gift exchange is one of the most amusing things you can do with a group of friends. For kicks, we tried it without the “3 steal limit” rule.

A rule, which we then reinstated after a set of hotly contested ceramic bowls were stolen for the eighth time.

I came out with a very classy print that will be the first “not clock” item that will be hanging in my apartment. I’m very happy with it.

One lucky individual went home with a copy of “Naughty College Schoolgirls #12.”

At the moment of that gift’s unveiling, I believe we all discovered the true meaning of Christmas.
