Friday Five

1. How often do you do laundry? Once every couple of weeks. I try to wear everything so I end up at the laundromat as little as possible.

2. What’s in a typical wash load? Clothes. Clothes. Some more clothes.

3. Front or top loader? Powder or liquid detergent? I think the front loading ones look cooler. Liquid detergent, no sticky clumps in the clothes.

4. Do you use fabric softener in the rinse cycle? Nope.

5. Dryer or clothesline? Dryer, it’s a laundromat.

The Tire

I think that I successfully managed to get the tire on the back of my bike. I’m going to set off for work shortly, so we’ll see if my mechanical skills hold up. I fear speeding along along the side of the road and having the wheel detach, sending me into traffic. Well not really, but that wouldn’t be too hot.

At War

I’m in the process of trying to fix my bicycle. At some point last week, it decided that it needed more attention and proceeded to pop my back tire. You think that changing a tire would be easy. It’s not. Sort of. It’s easy enough to get it off, change the inner tube and get tire back on the wheel. The hard part is making sure the wheel is straight and doesn’t wobble and so on and so forth. I’m having some troubles with this last part. The wheel is fighting me. I shall prevail.

Work and Star Wars

Right, it was supposed to be a day off. I went to bed at four, expecting to sleep until noon at least. The phone woke me up around 9:30 and a voice told me that I was wanted at the course soon. Bah.

Afterwards, I ended up going out to see Star Wars. I watched it awhile ago on my computer and was aware that the movie itself is awful. But the look of it on the big screen combined with the sound is amazing. Visually stunning, verbally challenged. Lucas could have handed me the script the night before he started filming and I could have come up with better dialogue. It doesn’t help that two of the principals seem like they wouldn’t be able to act their way out of a box in this movie.


That was three days in a row of being up before the sunrise to be at work for 6am. It’s not that it was difficult, I’d just rather be in bed. They let me off on the early side; it was a tournament day with more people than usual on (just to get things opened up quickly). So, I chilled for a bit and took off with Cameron to hit up a Bruce’s party near Bowmanville. Work hard for a few days and party harder. It appears that I became obsessed with the fire at some point, judging from the number of pictures I took. Lots of fire. I’ll sort through them and post a few later.


Mozilla has gone gold, 1.0 baby. Standards compliance, people who listen to bugreports and fix them, what more can you ask for? Go get it.

SLC Punk

I ended up watching SLC Punk last night. I’m sure that some people will find dozens of clich├ęs and such buried inside this movie, impacting their overall enjoyment. If you’re going with plot, the movie isn’t really that good. If you’re going for comedy and subplots, it was great. That is all.

Themes and More

Here’s a nice theme for mozilla, it’s the one I’m using right now. I’ve been enjoying mozilla; the tabbed browsing, pop-up killer, sidebars. You can make groups of bookmarks too. Say you had five news sites that you visited every morning, you could bookmark them together and open them all up at once in tabs.
