Sunday, October 3

Holla... great day outside today... Yesterday was all about crazy amounts of rain, but it was a nice day regardless!!

We did just what we planned... and I managed to get my new cell phone... I got a "slider" with qualcomm guts and it's groove station zero... I like it much better than the motorola I was gonna get... that Motorola (C341) had this "changeable face plate" deal and when Bell World dude tried to put the thing together... it just looked like it was begg'en to fall apart again... so screw that.  But I went from 3 year old samsung large flip cell phone to tiny wee slider cool beams phone (no camera... I'm not convinced about those camera phones yet) with a colour screen and and and... it's cool. mmmk? and it cost me NOOOOOTHING.  weeee... "oh your phone is on a corporate plan and has been for long enough to be legible for this free upgrade plan..." bwaahahahaha... okidoki...

Ed, Suz and I had dinner at Boston Pizza last night (Geo was having dinner at his friends house) and I actually enjoyed the pizza, and the service!! This is a first for me at Boston Pizza. We had the "rustic italian" and I was totally digging the red onions and the spicy sausage... :)

~ red stripee ftls
~ blue jeans
~ strong bad t-shirt!! :D
~ basement cleaning!!! actually making a "reorganize the basement" deal out of it...
~ figure out why fedora disk 1 wont boot once and for all!!
~ TKD at 3:00
~ watch Desperate House Wives tonight... although I'm not holding a lot of hope...
~ that my friend giabean gets where she needs to be... and recognizes the surroundings when she's there.
~ for some card peace to find kimmellee. :D
~ that I get to see loads more pictures from circlek and angryvixen's wedding!!! :D :D

There is sunshine and very very very cooooool air outside today. :D
I need to put away a few of the summer things, like hoses and the umbrella on the back deck...
The sunlight is just screaming outside and I wanna go get some on my skin before it goes away.

Hey!!!! Due to a moment of good luck, I actually remembered to tape "LOST" last night... boy did we enjoy it... Suz thinks the plot will run out of steam but ... even so, I enjoyed the filming style and the intensity of the moments...

So my desired television line up is;

West Wing

That's 5 1/2 hours of tv per week?  Seems like a lot...
Am I forgetting something?
I wish Firefly continued!  (alas... but the movie Serenity will eventually be released...)

I dig Sopranos and 24 but I prefer to watch them on DVD in little bursts...
Ok... time for more coffee and sunlight.

see ya. :D

fedora problem solved...
and, as I sneakily suspected,
the problem was completely
due to my bad mental wiring.
I burned ISO's of the ISO's.
If you understand that,
then you're having a quick
snort of a laugh at me.
And believe me...
I deserve it. :D

Tonight I'll get to take another stab at the whole install thing, on the test server - of course. :D

~ yeah... geo had it right when he said to z "dads got a new toy..."

see I'm like... habitually way behind on all things cellular... having been the hand me down guy in office cell phone land.  Then the last company I was with went all crazy and got me a *gasp* new cell phone.  And I've had it for three years? any hooo... when that company was bought out, I had to take over my cell plan... so a new phone has been out of the question for ages. :)
