.missing: one tiger key chain

I cannot find my Tiger key chain (the one that April got for me). I could have sworn that I brought it in the house and put it on my desk. The only suspect so far is SMF Yeti, who was seen lurking at the scene of the crime. I also suspect Roxy (Barbara’s cat), however, she hasn’t come into my room all day. Mr. Pinkie, the Baskin Robbins spoon, is also suspiciously absent….

.Fight Club

Finish reading Fight Club last night, the first book that I have finished in quite awhile now. OMG, I should def. have read the book first before seeing the movie. Or maybe not….I don’t know they each spoil each other. Of course they left out stuff in the movie that was in the book; however, I’m surprised (In a good way) that they left out the scene where Tyler is first introduced. I would think that Hollywood would have love to use Brad Pitt in that kind of scene. Yeah, I’m not telling, you are going to have to read the book. I guess the bottom line is that both the book and the movie are big mind fucks. And you guys with the DVD’s know about the hidden stuff that is in the movie, right?

This makes me want to watch Magnolia. That was another mind fuck movie, along with
Vanilla Sky
. Although with Vanilla Sky, I want to see the original Spanish version also.

I have a free weekend that I was suppose to go and see an old friend, but that isn’t happening until next weekend. I could goto the Ren Faire again, however that would put a dent in the pocket book. Also I need to get that stuff called…food? groceries? Yeah, it’s probably better to be able to eat for a couple of weeks than to get drunk and play Jenga at the Ren Faire. The thing with the Ren Faire is that if I go, I have to dress up. I don’t think that I could go just wearing street clothes. And rentals are $40-$70 depending on the costume. **sigh** I will just have to start buying pieces for a costume.

Anyway, I think this weekend will be a movie weekend. Top picks are Underworld and Once Upon A Time In Mexico looks like the movie that will be seen this weekend. Wondering if I should splurge and goto Metreon to see it or just settle for another location. Also with the weather warming up, I think that I will hit the beach; maybe drive down to Half Moon Bay, or even all the way down to Santa Cruz. The Boardwalk might be entertaining. The key is not to stay holed up at home.

.”How do the hell do you transfer…”

That was a quote today from Helen, the lovely customer service rep from Samsung that I got today. Called Samsung today for the 3rd time to try and get my monitor fixed. I am getting a replacement monitor, but instead of a new one, I am getting a refurbished one. 😛 Not happy with it, but it is stated in the warranty that they can do that. So they are shipping it to a UPS store and when it arrives, I just need to bring my broken one to them and switch them. All I have to say is that this monitor had better look has good as my old one, or I will be calling them back to bitch at someone. Still, I will be nice to reclaim my 19 inches (O.K., 18 inches; it is a CRT monitor.) This 17 inch one that I am using is pissing me off.

Also got the $14 empty hard drive box that I needed to send back my IBM “Deathstar” hard drive back. The repair center is in Union City, it would probably been cheaper to just drive it over myself. **sigh** Well, at least it has been mailed off and it shouldn’t take too long for them to send me a new hard drive. I probably won’t keep it, instead send it up to my parents and have Eric install it into the Gateway (AMD K6-450; 256MB RAM, 10GB) And then I also have the 20GB that I was suppose to give to Eric like a year ago. Wonder if I should keep that one or send it up too. I highly doubt that the AST could handle it (P60 – Yes original Pentium processor, 32 or 64 MB RAM, 2.1 HD). Sigh…my Dad still uses this machine sometimes. I tried one, but combined with no broadband, I just couldn’t handle it.

In other computer news, in Madden ’04, the Texans (me) upset the Raiders (Mark) 17-15; however, they
collapse and lost to Chicago (Tim) 45-14.
