  • scrabble: Owen came over last night, and we played scrabble and ate chinese food. It was a lot of fun, though owen got miserable hands. I got a bingo with ‘sunrays’ and got 79 points as a result.

  • parents: Went home to California after a few days. My dad helped mow the lawn making it look a lot more respectable.

  • rabbits: Finished reading watership down last night. Wonderful book. It made me feel like a rabbit for a while. Next up: Tales (Tails?) from Watership Down.

  • hacking: I have a lot of catching up to do.

  • taxes: suck

  • DSL: Connection was down for most of the weekend. Suck.

  • Oscars: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Wires didn’t win Best Picture. Further Proof that none of the voters actually watch the movies.

  • Hacking: Despite the fact we’ve reached crunch time, I was unable to do any serious GTK+ hacking from home due to above mentioned network outage. Worked on AR2, instead. I got the gdeck library hooked up with the Scheme code as a test, and managed to get the Klondike to appear (though moving cards is not currently working.) I started working on the drawing code for cards, and got bogged down by pixbuf issues (alpha/non-alpha messiness). I’m thinking my great idea of drawing the images dynamicaly might not be such a great idea after all. It will save 1.5 Megs of memory, though…

  • Taxes: Suck.

  • Movie (Out of Sight): I’ve seen a lot of Jennifer Lopez recently, for some reason. During the Acadamy Awards pregame show, I saw a _lot_ of her…

  • dog: Jester decided that it would be a lot of fun to rip up our bags of leaves and spread them over the lawn. Bad Dog!

  • My computer is sounding like a Jet Engine again. Bad ‘puter!
