We finally got cable hooked up to the flatscreen! Has Peter Boyle ever looked this crisp and bright? I submit that he has not.

Now I just have to get a USB wifi adapter that’ll work with the TiVo (and WEP) and we’ll be in business.

I’ve been playing Hearts on Zone.com a lot lately. Really tough game to master… I’ve only been able to win about 10% of the matches. I’d rather be playing Armadillo Run, but I haven’t set up the desktop yet and my save file’s on there. This HP laptop does everything so well I haven’t had much need for the big machine yet.

I came across this great little site the other day: Things My Boyfriend Says. Here’s my favorite transcription:

While E was playing Civilization 4 I decided to go to the store. He asked if I would bring him back something, I said no, and he said:

“And I was just going to name this city I conquered after you. I guess I’ll have to call it Bitchburg.”

When I was in the Tri-Cities a few weeks ago I decided to go see Children of Men. But when I got to the theater, I found they’d replaced the showing with something dumb called TV: The Movie. My only other choices were Casino Royale and Dreamgirls. I reluctantly bought a ticket for the former and was pleasantly surprised — it’s the best Bond movie I’ve seen yet. I was a little disappointed that John Cleese wasn’t back as Q, but I suppose his presence wouldn’t have been appropriate anyway; Casino Royale‘s too serious for him.

I have to finish a 235 page novel by next Tuesday for English 373 and it’s sooo boring. At least the reading in 251 is getting interesting.

I’ll leave you with these awesome Japanimation-y Simpsons/Futurama illustrations I pilfered from Krunk:
