iPod People

Today, I bought Geoff an iPod Mini. He’s very happy (shock). It’s pretty cute. But we’ve been talking about it for a week. His is the silver one. I’ve had mine for 9 months, and it’s not a mini. All our computer stuff is named after Spongebob stuff. My computer is Plankton, Geoff’s laptop Squidward, my iPod is Pearl, his is Squilliam, and the wireless network is Bikini Bottom. Gary is our car. Yeah, we are a little weird.

It was a pretty nice day, though it’s raining now. The last few days it’s become more and more apparent that I don’t have enough time to see everyone in Edmonton. A week isn’t enough especially if you lose Friday & Saturday night. I really wish I could have another visit, one that didn’t involve responsibility for being places. A laid back trip, but I doubt it will be this year. Maybe next year. There are already too many trips this year, and they all take place before August!

Oh, an update on the Pepsi/iTunes contest. On Tuesday, I picked up a bottle at Target & won! It wasn’t hard, I just flipped the bottle to read the inside of the cap. They don’t hide it, so why waste a dollar on a bottle that doesn’t let me win. Geoff wanted to get in on the fun, so we bought two Sierra Mists at Safeway. We had to look at nearly 10 bottles. I spent my first free song buying Erasure’s Chains Of Love. I’m saving my second win. I’m torn between Grazing In The Grass (Friends of Distinction), Virtual Insanity (Jamiroquai), Banditos (Refreshments), or some other song I haven’t found yet. I’m still working on getting Geoff to set up an allowance for me on iTunes (which they do. How cool is that?!).

Here are my Top Five Worst Movies. Now these are movies I’ve had the displeasure of seeing, not movies that I’m sure will suck but haven’t seen.

1. Lair Of The White Worm (Kyle’s fault)

2. Eating Raoul (Also Kyle’s fault)

3. Army Of Darkness (I realize a lot of people like it, but I hated it!)

4. Lightning Jack (saw it in the $1 theatre, and it was a waste of a $1)

5. Nothing But Trouble

Honorable mentions go out to Enemy Mine, The Last Supper (sorry Jason & Geoff. Karen would side with me), Election, and Tim Burton’s Planet Of The Apes.

I’d be interested to hear what your list looks like, so email it or posted it in the comments under this post. I’m going to close with a quote from Red Dwarf. I have a feeling that season 3 & 4 on DVD may be coming my way.

Kryten: Sir? May I recommend I load myself into the reverse-thrust tubes and you use my body as decoy-fodder? This will, of course leave me splattered across deep space and unable to complete today’s laundry, for which I apologize in advance.

Rimmer: Kryten, stop your blathering and get in the damn tube.

Lister: Kryten, sit down. I’m not doing me own smeggin’ ironing.
