Trash the Dress

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.

Don’t take you removeable memory devices to work. You are the enemy! Since you can’t take care of your computer at work it is a petry dish of viruses and trojans. Allowing your work computer to have any contact with your home one is a risk. BBC News | SCI/TECH | Employees seen as computer saboteurs This is why I need a laptop for taking home to do work!
