No, I didn’t bid on the Lara Croft dress. Out of my price range at $3300  (really 2200 pounds, the exchange fluxuated between 1.4 and 1.6 dollars/pound, so about $3300).

Ran into the president of the uni this morning. Great guy. I think he is exactly what this institution needs.

I did get my birthday presents from my mom (2 weeks late, don’t ask). She got me The Universe in a Nutshell, ST:NG – The Complete First Season, and Taxi Driver (Special Edition).

Hawking is a great author… A Brief History of Time is one of my favorite books of all time. He renewed my interest in physics at a time when I had become frustrated with the tediousness of it. I’ve already gotten 30 pages into it. Much easier read than ABHoT. I do have the DVD set of the PBS stuff. Having seen that recently is why I was excited about The Universe in a Nutshell.

ST:NG is the Star Trek I grew up with. It started in ’87 when I was a middle school student. To me this IS Star Trek. I probably will end up buying all the seasons before I am done.

Scorsese is a great director. Taxi Driver adds to rounding out my 70s classics collection.

    Taxi Driver RULES!  (and yes, Magic is still around…but I guess I’m a dork)  I actually just STARTED playing last July…
