Zoner en fuego!

XMEN2 today

Looks like at least Slarti and I will be seeing XMEN2 at some point today. I'm heading out to do some errands, I think Slarti is out too. If you know one or the other of us, you probably have our cell numbers - and they're in the Gweep Rolodex. (And if you don't know what that is, you're probably not supposed to anyway.)

If you want to hook up for this, call.

A Good Day

Well, I woke up a bit earlier than I expected to today (read, before noon), but that meant I got out of the house and enjoyed the lovely day we had.

But, before I did, I shaved my head again! Feels neat to be Mr. Clean again - you don't realize how much weight hair has until you cut it off and suddenly your head feels lighter. It wasn't as dramatic as last spring when I sheared off a couple of feet (>11 years worth) of hair, since this was only since late November or so, but it was noticable. Still is really - I can sense it in my scalp, nothing pulling on it, no feeling when I turn my head of a separate mass, etc.

So I got cleaned up and went out. I hit the AT&T Wireless store again and chatted up Emily, again - and bought a phone from her. I got the Sony Ericsson T68i, as planned. I'm still figuring out all the features (yes, I will read the book), but it is slightly smaller and much lighter than the original Digital StarTac I've carried around for ~4 years. And the feature set is fairly impressive - I love the bright, crisp color screen and the blue backlight on the buttons. Very nice. Emily is going to call me when they have more Jabra BlueTooth headsets in stock and I'm going to check them out. I just wish my NZ90 would ship - the guy I bought it from paid for a shipping label from UPS, but it hasn't been dropped-off/picked-up yet. I want my toy. :-)

So after buying the phone I hit Applebee's for lunch (it is next door to the AT&T store). Then it was back to Worcester. I grabbed slarti from his place and we went off to Showcase North to catch X2 @ 19:00.

X2 was a blast! I loved it. There was some obvious telegraphing for X3, but that's fine. Most of the acting came from Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen, but that's not surprising. I think Hugh Jackman did a great job as Logan, again - and he really kicked some ass in this one. I've never really read the X-Men comics, so most of my exposure to them has been through friends, and through X-Men: Evolution. I've seen almost all of the animated series to date.

So I've been home a little while. Still have some energy, and it is only 23:20, so I'm thinking maybe I should go over to Ralph's or something.
