I was super productive this weekend in many aspects: personal, work-related, and some mysterious third aspect that I don’t even want to think about.
I saw “V for Vendetta” last night and it was a real good flick. I highly reccomend it to everyone. Hugo Weaving was really great as V, and Natalie Port(t?)m(m?)an(n?) was good as well.
I completed my moving today, as there had been a pile of Junk in the back of truck for the last week and a half. I finally threw half of it out and moved the other half into storage. A run through the ol’ car wash and she’ll be good as new.
I’ve been cooking a strange stew on my stove for the last two days. Every time I go to eat it I think, “nah, not ready yet.” I’m not sure what quality I’m looking before before I turn off the heat and eat the damn thing, but as soon as I figure it out I’ll alert the Whazzmaster.com Community; I’m sure you’ll all be dying to know.
I’m thinking about buying a software development-only laptop for home use, but I’m not sure which way to go just yet. I was leaning towards the Toshiba Portege M400 tablet, but I’m also thinking of just going straight ThinkPad (non-tablet) to save money. Of course, the big expense would be Visual Studio, but I may be able to get by with just a common editor (notepad?) and the free command-line SDK. Visual Studio would be nice, but VS2005 doesn’t have Resharper support yet, and I don’t want to thin about .Net development without Resharper. I think Resharper 2.0 is supposed to be out sometime soon. Perhaps then I’ll buy Visual C# 2005 and Resharper 2.0. That’d only be around $300, which is affordable for the stuff I’d want to do initially. I’d also install J2SE 1.5 and maybe get a version of Eclipse, because I don’t think my Java-Fu is as strong as I’d wish.
EvilAntnie lent me a PS2 and Guitar Hero for the week while he’s jetsetting around Amsterdamn. I’ve already raged on the class 1 songs (5 star review on each) and I’m almost there on the class 2 songs. My fingers move like lightning; I should have been a lead guitarist instead of a code-slinger. Favorite songs so far: Boston’s More Than A Feeling, Franz Ferdinand’s Take Me Out, and ZZ Top’s Sharp-Dressed Man. Rock out with your cocks out, gentlemen.
A tasty juice recipe: 1 pineapple, 1 pear, 1 apple, 1/2 lemon. Don’t put any ginger in it, that’s just what The Man (cal) wants from you. DON’T GIVE IN, NO GINGER!
I bought an exercise ball for my home. I can do crunches on it, I can arch my back on it, and I can sit on it at my computer. I can probably have sex on it but haven’t tried yet. Any ladies out there that want to experiment, please email me. I need to purchase a bike soon, but I think I’ll wait until it doesn’t rain 4 out of every 7 days. I’m still running every morning to and from the gym, and I’m down 10 pounds from when I moved in. Current weight: 190, target weight: 175. Don’t know if that’s a realistic weight given my frame, but I’m pretty sure that I can get down to 180 with some exercise and good eating.

Until later, whazzmaster.com, bust out madd rhymes and check your motherfuckin wind chimes. I’m out.
