Very odd. Yesturday I got up quite late (9:00 pm) feeling rather bad; very
tired and somewhat nauseous because of this incredibly bad headache. I
either slept too much, or had yet to catch up on sleep. I chatted with a
few friends (no, I didn't mind chatting) then watched
listening to the director's commentary (I had watched
last week, borrowing the DVD from my friend Jeff Cuscutis
and all I have
to say on both is “the DVD with both films is worth it if you're into
making low-cost films”) and fell asleep by 4:00 am. I woke up at 9:00 am
That's what I found very odd.
Not only that, but I felt like getting up; I wasn't sleepy at all.
I spend my second day off from work (my logical Sunday, even if phyically
it's Monday—sorry, old computer joke there) with a client, doing the work
Unix sysadmin should be able to do.
Me, bitter? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
At least I had lunch at Byblos, a local mid-Eastern restaurant in Boca
Raton and I really like.
at his job for less than a week, and not only is the expert on the project
he's been thrown on, but he's being shipped out to Texas on a business trip
So tonight JeffK and I took him out to dinner to wish him well on the trip.
We went to the Road House Grill. It's a steak house where they have buckets
of peanuts on the table and you can toss the shells on the floor. The food
is good and the atmosphere tolerable (in that while they do play country
music, it's not loud enough to be truely annoying).
Afterwards I showed Mark the pictures from his birthday party and then we rented
time travel story without the travel.
After the movie, JeffK and I kicked ourselves out to allow Mark time to
pack, even if it was after midnight.
movie staring Dennis Quaid and James Caviezel, is a time travel story
without the travel. Basically, a freak solar storm in 1969 and 1999 allow a
father (in 1969) to speak to his son (in 1999) over a short-wave radio set
(the same set as it turns out). Given that leap of faith, and the the
belief that changes made in the past change the future, it's fairly
consistent in its treatment and an interesting twist to the time travel
genre. Worth seeing if you into that type of film.
