Yes. The premise of the blog is that one writes daily. What is my excuse? Excuses? ... Since you asked...
Friday I went to watch MicroCosmos at Tish and Tom's. This fill features bugs. And not animated like Bugs' Life, etc. There were some great scenes. It worked as a movie that we could talk through. And so much has happened in both our lives since the last time we talked, almost a month ago. Tish is getting close to finishing another semester on her MBA. Her second child must be getting close. And the two (four?) of them are thinking about getting into the rental business. I consider my rental house as an adventure. They see it as a way to diversify, to retire, to be happy.
And then I came home and watched Max Headroom. And being on TechTV, I watched a clip about Star Wars Galaxies and some cool computer animation. Max was a little less than I remember. Then again I consider it one of the best TV shows... EVER. The best animation was one that had little balls flying out of machines, hitting stuff, and making music. The music and the inventiveness of the animation was brilliant. I clapped at the end. Animusic: Pipe Dreams
Saturday... well... I was on the machine most of the day trying to write Flash. I often got distracted, mostly by Crash Bandicoot Warped. Yes, the game is several years old. Sophia sent me an e-card from Austria. I was a little depressed at the end of the day because I accomplished less than I hoped (who doesn't think the world can be coded in just 8 hours), I missed both the hockey game AND the Laker-Kings game (which I thought was on Sunday), and I meant to do chores and little projects around the house and didn't get to a single one.
Sunday. No excuses. I already have the task list. I have already watered the plants. And now I've been here way too long. Go away...
