More Expensive But Much Smaller desk (courtesy Room&Board) delivered, fufilling the desk-size-reduction drive I've had since moving into this apartment three years ago. Now maybe I can consider switching out my rental cable modem for the one I bought when I moved in. Someday.Today I had my new |
And I caught up on my flickrs, which was backlogged by about a hundred photos to meaninglessly caption. At least I don't bother to tag them. Notable events pictured: a visit to Monterey Bay Aquarium (amazing), the opera (strange), the SF recycling center (rad), some criticalmasses (typical), and Voxtrot's last (SF) show (sad).
I am basically sick of Facebook; no matter how many people I hide from my feed it doesn't stop producing information that doesn't matter to me. I've cut down my website-refreshing habits to Twitter, LJ and Google Reader. If Twitter and LJ occupied the same space that would be great. Given that probably less than ten people I know have updated LJ this year.
At some point I have to get a hair cut. Other than routine sideburn maintenance, it's been growing continually since the great hair reboot of Mid-January 2010.
I installed Windows 7 because Just Cause 2 won't run on XP. I guess now I kinda sympathize with Microsoft with regard to supporting a decade-old OS; I always thought putting DX10 on Vista+ was a dick move, but given the version fragmentation problems on iOS and Android I've started to see it in a new light.
Recently I've played through Starcraft 2 (amazing production values, bad writing), most of Just Cause 2 (very relaxing sandbox, ultimately unfulfilling), some of Dragon Quest 9 (obnoxiously oldschool, borderline unplayable), along with some movie-watching and what have you. I've just about stopped reading books altogether. It makes me fall asleep.
I am grateful for the Nintendo DSiXL I bought, as it keeps me awake in times of boredom, notably Caltrain. Picross 3D is great.
Basically I've spent the Summer not challenging myself in any way, which is comfortable. The summer is a great time to sortof exist without having to expend a lot of effort doing so. It's winter when I always have to go out of my way to stay entertained.
Looking forward to:
