I read, write, code, and knit.

  1. Dream of fridges

    I've been trying Macromedia Dreamweaver at school for the past few days, and it is pretty cool. While the WYSIWYG-created results do not produce the cleanest code, I can always manually edit that to my specifications, and it is a very useful tool to have. Unfortunately, the price tag is rather large: $399 USD!

    Our fridge stopped refrigerating things. So we'll have to repair it or get a new one. Until then, there's not much of a variety of food to eat.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving

    Happy Thanksgiving to Canadians, eh. Happy Columbus Day to Americans.

    I watched House of Sand and Fog on Saturday. It was an incredibly depressing movie, and drowning with symbolism. If you haven't seen it, don't watch it.

    Today, I watched Space's Miniseries Marathon. I didn't get up in time for V: The Miniseries, but I saw V: The Final Battle. I'm not a big V fan, but it was good. Then there was Battlestar Galactica, which I've seen one too many times. One that I can never get enough of is Frank Herbert's Children of Dune.

    I added some more quotations, bringing the total count up to 25. (But who's counting?)
