Things are going well. My re-design is complete, and my implementation of it is coming along nicely. I figured out that the thing that was causing me problems was this
blog journal and trying to integrate it into my site. For some reason, WordPress doesn’t want to make things easy for me in changing its layout. I’m not even asking for easy. I could settle for “only slightly difficult.” Maybe I’m just missing something.
So even though only Daniel and Keith know about this section, I’m going to keep writing in it in hopes that one day I get it figured out and linked from my main site.
I’ve spent the last two weeks trying to finish Crash Bandicoot 2: the Wrath of Cortex. I had it when I lived at home and LOVED it, so when I found it used at some game store here, I totally bought it. I’m trying to get all of the gems (I have all the crystals already) so I can get the super-duper “you-beat-it-all” ending when I beat the last boss. I’m one gem away, and I can’t seem to get it. I know what I have to do, but that involves NOT DYING throughout the ENTIRE LEVEL, and so far I haven’t been able to do that.
I saw “A Dirty Shame” with Daniel last Sunday and I thought it was pretty funny. It was incredibly perverse, so if you’re easily offended you should avoid seeing it. I also visited Star last week AND came down with a horrible cold. The two events were completely coincidental. Star and Sean have an adorable baby named Keenan, so I played with him and he tried to eat my watch and we had a lot of fun. We rented “The Ring” and “Sleepy Hollow” because I hadn’t seen either, and then later we watched “Cold Mountain,” which was really good. I thought all three movies were good, actually. The Ring was pretty creepy – I kept visualizing the part near the end when Samara comes out of the TV at the boyfriend: scary! Sleepy Hollow was neat; it wasn’t spectacular, but I do enjoy both Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci and there were some pretty cool parts. Cold Mountain was great. Ever since seeing GATTACA, I keep thinking that I should be interested in Jude Law. My mind kept telling me that I should find him attractive, but to tell you the truth, it hasn’t really worked. Which isn’t to say that he’s unattractive, because I don’t think that’s true either. I just don’t have any sort of girly crush on him like my mind seems to think that I should. Anyway, this movie just reinforced my mind’s thinking. It still hasn’t won me over, but I do agree that Jude Law is a fantastic actor and I really like watching him in movies. Speaking of which, he has like, seventeen movies coming out within the next couple of weeks or so. Workaholic.
