Why is it so hard to stay awake during class? I mean, memory levels are so exciting. Learning about KeyServer for work, trying to catch up on Architecture homework, and now sitting in Algorithms discussion. The weekend looks to be full of programming my own shell and a take home midterm, and maybe, just maybe, some movies and some ultimate in there as well.

Saw Monsters, Inc. on Friday. Pixar continues to put up some good work. Very good movie. Can't wait to get it on DVD. Some good ultimate on Saturday, probably the last of the year. And then some programming Saturday night, and finally got X10 working through my linux box (xenon). Home automation's sweet. Especially when there's a take home midterm that should be finished. No Alias tonight, I wonder why? Tuesday, I'll probably go see The One, and that's about as far as the plans go. No tourney in Austin, that one sounded fun. A side note, John, I'll call you soon. Your email address caused a bounce. So how about a review of Monsters, Inc.? Good movie. Funny. I'm not sure if I missed some of the humor in the film, I'm betting I did, I hope. But good. I happen to like Billy Crystal, good work in When Harry Met Sally and America's Sweethearts. But "Boo" really stole the show. Not that I'm around toddlers at all, but that's how I'd expect a very little kid to be like, very cute, very adorable. And to think she was computer generated. Now that I think about it, a very impressive feat. But definitely a good story. Definitely different levels to take on it, but I was thoroughly amused throughout the film.

Well, in the past week and a half, I've had homework and work. Did I ever mention I'm a support associate at the University of Chicago Lab Schools. I get to play with macs all day. Or at least half of the day. Finally saw the Musical Episode of Buffy, found and burned the mp3's of the songs. I've forgotten how nice storytelling through song can be. I did see The One. Harry Potter this weekend. Playing a lot of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3. Crazy game.

Hmmph. Time's passed. I've got finals and projects due in the next week or two. And then I"m done with my first quarter of school. Great. 2 more. Hopefully. Went and saw Harry Potter opening night. Good movie. I need to read them again. I also need to read Fellowship of the Ring before that comes out. But I should have time. Thanksgiving was good out in Woodstock. Keep trying to get caught up with homework. Fixed my Airport Base Station with some new capicitors and a soldering iron. Pretty cool.
