February 9, 2001

  • work: sucked. Spent too long there. Got home to find the doggy had made a mess in the back room. Spent a while cleaning up — I’ll have to be up late waiting for his cage to dry. Maybe I can do some hacking on the ripping software in the interim.

  • clothes: Zana knitted me a sweater. It’s very cool. I will wear it tomorrow, assuming the weather doesn’t get in the way.

  • entertainment: XFL sucked. A lot. So much so, that Zana sent me out to rent a movie. I rented Highlander, and watched it. Woo — that’s one more movie that I’ve been meaning to see watched.

  • consumerism: Went furniture shopping with zana this morning. We looked at a bench to put by our front door, so people can take off their shoes easily. Went to Ecko, and picked out some fabric samples. Also grabbed a CD-RW at stayonline. Now that I have the camera working, I’m going to want to store the pictures on something.

  • College Sports (hoops): Watched UNC beat Georgia Tech. Not a bad game — almost worth fighting through traffic for. Also saw UCLA beat Stanford. Should make my brother happy. I watched a lot of TV today.

  • work (apacheconf): Gave some more thought to handling Environment variables. I think we can get another public release out to the testers list on Monday.

  • zana: Knitting like mad on my sweater. It looks cool…

  • work: Unproductive day. Helped Crutcher track down a memory-corruption bug. Did some glade-work. Then tried to do some more work on GtkTreeModelSort to ease my conscience.

  • dog: Jester caught an opossum earlier tonight. He seemed rather proud of himself, but got a shower for his troubles. The opossum appeared to be quite dead, but ran off a few minutes later. I guess they do that.

  • xmas: Opened presents from my uncle and aunt, rather then drag them all the way to LA for Christmas. Zana got a book of Welsh poems. I need to learn Welsh — it’s such a cool looking language. I need to learn Cantonese first, though…

  • work: Spent half the day reading mail. The other half getting caught up in Alchemist work, and the last half trying to finish a UI. Busy day.

  • food: Had dinner with Owen and Zana. First went to Carolina Coffee House. Shut. Then went to a sportsbar. Also shut. Finally, had to settle for Pepper’s Pizza. Not too bad, but not too great. Better then my frozen empanada at lunch though. Apparently downtown Chapel Hill closes for christmas.
