A Promotion...
...but not really. However, Xandros is getting me business cards. Yes, my first official business cards. I never thought I would see the day. I remember when I was little and going to visit my mom at work, I was always fascinated with office stationary and whatnot. It's like a little part of me is fulfilled now.

I haven't been writing here much lately. The general theory is that I only write when there is something interesting to write about. Well, there hasn't been anything interesting to write about. Work is keeping me very busy, and outside of work I'm finishing projects -- usually away from the computer. Whereas previously I had started many projects and there were many interesting things to write about, now I find myself completing them, and it takes time.

Tomorrow is my twenty-fourth birthday. I can still remember a time when there was much anticipation of presents, cake, etc. Not so anymore. Instead, I find myself planning around what is certain to be a hectic day at the office. Is this what being a grown-up feels like? Maybe I'll sleep in or something.

The latest addiction in my life is Multi Theft Auto: San Andreas. It builds upon the multiplayer stubs in GTA:SA. The result is unbelievably addictive multiplayer races, rallies, and deathmatches. The coolest feature, by far, is that checkpoints can change vehicles. When a map is designed to use the features of the engine, it makes for a pretty unique game.

Watched the final episode of this season of Battlestar Galactica. I really don't know where this is going. I'm a little annoyed at this one. It's possible something good will come out of the plot development, but I can't see it right now. Unlike Star Trek, there is small likelihood that time travel is involved or that this is a parallel universe. I have faith in Ron Moore. Something good will come out of this. But I already miss the ship with the UBC dome.

That's all for now; there are many little anecdotes I could type away at, but why bother? Maybe there will be a picture next time...
