I can’t help it. I saw a picture of Natalie Portman with her hair still very short because she shaved her head for her latest film and I was amazed. OMFG, she’s adorable.
This is not the exact image that caused my reaction (I was foiled trying to link to the actual picture because it was presented in a Flash-based gallery), but it does show off just how fucking cute she is.
Appliances? I Needed Stinking Appliances!
Maybe it was the fact that I was watching the Price Is Right at lunch. Maybe it was because I had $1000 of Sears Gift Cards burning holes in my pocket (yes Stacey, those gift cards). Or maybe it was because I was reading one of my posts from last January in which I referenced not buying a new refrigerator.
Yesterday I finally bought a new refrigerator! Woo Hoo! No more kicking the refrigerator door shut (at least I hope so)! I can’t complain too much about the refrigerator that will be leaving the house; it was “thrown in” with the house when I bought it nearly seven years ago. It has served me well.
This Week I Am A Bad Martazen
I have not ridden Marta once this week.
It started Monday because it was a holiday. Yesterday the weather looked like it was going to be horrible to try and walk to/from Marta, and I needed to run over to Sears after work to buy the aforementioned refrigerator. Today I am just a lazy fuck who has all intentions of attempting a much-needed run after work (that spare tire around my waist is not getting any smaller). Maybe I’ll get back on the rails tomorrow.
Hmmm, I Don’t Think That My Monitor Should Make That Noise
I can’t say that it came as a surprise that my computer monitor at home died yesterday. For many months the center portion of the screen was blurry. It was so blurry [note for you early-morning readers: this ended here because someone interrupted me. read on now] that I thought I needed to get my eyes checked. When I arrived home yesterday I heard an odd clicking noise coming from my office, which turned out to be the monitor telling me that it had finally given up.
It looks like it’s now time for me to finally figure out my next home computer strategy…
The Podfather Keeps Mentioning The ATL
Adam Curry has been doing some name dropping of Atlanta recently. After doing a little digging I have found that he does business with THINK Interactive, Inc. on Spring Street, formerly known as Interweb. This is additionally interest of me because I always wondered what Interweb did when I drove passed their cool office building back in the DotCom days.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – meh
Current Music – none, Adam Curry’s “Daily Source Code” podcast
Website Of The Day – Don’t read anything into this, but I have stumbled across a great organization for helping stray dogs called (fittingly) Stray Atlanta.
If you ever want a quick glance of the sites I’ve picked for my Websites Of The Day, you can check them out on del.icio.us, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”
