Blogger's spellcheck software continues to think that "blog" is not a word. While I no longer laugh out loud, I am still amused by this. Carry on with your lives now, citizens.
Okay, I know I've said something like this before (and I'm not going to find the link just to let you read something embarrassing to me now), but perhaps Tuesdays will be my regular blog update day. Tuesday mornings is when Blizzard does their server maintenance and takes WOW offline. Or I could just stick … Continue reading Tuesdays
I still read Window in the Garden Wall every day. (Well, every weekday when there's something new up. Hasn't been anything since January 20, at the time of this post.) But I don't think the proprietress, Arevanye, reads my blog anymore. I'm not upset by that. Heck, outside of a few family and friends, I … Continue reading On the transience of the interweb.
At first blush, one would think I would be thrilled beyond measure at the prospect of this upcoming football contest. I am a Steeler fan of about two decades duration while also being a native and resident of the greater Seattle metropolitan area. But, instead of provoking joy, this Super Sunday is going to present … Continue reading Seahawks + Steelers = Super Bowl!
I added Ring for Jeeves to the list of books read, but I haven't posted any sort of review yet. I've been holding off partly because of WOW (see previous post) but also because I just can't think of much good to say about it. It's really the first bad PG Wodehouse book I've read, … Continue reading Book
So I had some Christmas money to use, and I broke down and bought World of Warcraft. As I have said, it is the best game I have ever played. I anticipate it getting even better once I get back to and past the point where I reached during the free trial. Hopefully, since I've … Continue reading WOW all over again.
Watched Man on Fire for the first time this weekend. It was...mediocre. Denzel Washington is a fine actor and Dakota Fanning is a charming little girl, but the movie itself was weak. I was not convinced that Denzel was a man with a tortured past because of what I saw on screen so much as … Continue reading Spontaneous Human Combustion
Linked over at Think Christian is an article from Christianity Today about the marketing of Aslan prompted by the movie and musing on what that means for Christians and what it means to market Jesus by proxy in this way. Worth reading, I think (and it's not very long).
Finished A Gentleman of Leisure a couple days ago, the first book I've finished in the New Year. It was okay, for a Wodehouse novel. Which is to say, better than many books, but not quite up to his best. It does have the standard Wodehouse plot, wherein a young man falls in love, the … Continue reading Bookly things
I'm not sure what the problem is, but the Library Thing widget that's supposed to refresh every 20 minutes won't ever update unless I change something in the code itself. And I can't get it to work on my Library Thing profile page at all. Grr.
