you know when you are watching someone's life on facebook, and you just think, OH NO. and they're SO HAPPY? yeah. that.

so less than a week ago, they went from engaged to single. now, a week later, they're engaged again and she's pregnant. and i'm just thinking, seriously? with THIS guy? the one to whom you have and then haven't and then have been engaged? about whom all you can really say is "he's just cute"?

AAARGH.

and this is something like the third time, with different guys... the last two times, the pregnancy has miscarried, and the guy has turned out (hah!) to be a useless waste of space, and we've all had to hold your hand through a couple of months of misery, drinking, and then, LO AND BEHOLD on another night out, guess what! another cute guy comes along and well whaddaya know. you're engaged again.



AAAAAAAAARGH.

I've got Tomb Raider 4 and 5 for my PS, and goodness those games have aged. The controls are awful.

@Furious, if/when you get the Thief games, there's a new patch out for the first two - inofficial ones, but they've been pretty much hailed as the second coming when it comes to playing these games on modern(ish) machines. Once you get around to playing them, make sure to look for the patches or drop me a note!

It's a shift thread and no one is talking about food?

Chris and I are planning to visit the food trucks tonight. I'm hoping that the Peruvian Street Food people will be there again, because there were these ham and cheese taquito type things with a lime avacado dipping sauce that were amazing.

That sounds really yummy! I made lasagna today and so I made a mess. I inadvertently added one too many eggs to the flour mix and so had to knead in extra flour. And I have yet to figure out just how much dough to make. So, I tried just squishing the rest and cutting it up for noodles. But really I just need a lasagna/roasting pan thingy because my glass pan isn't deep enough.

I love lasagna, but I've never made my own noodles for it. I'll try that someday!

Sun! After two weeks of horizon hugging grey clouds we have sun! To the West it's still cloudy though.

Quote foound on the Wall ST. Journal website:

quote:
”Since I expressed my initial concerns in late September, Apple’s shares have fallen by $165. The shares now stand at $536, and I am buying.”



Good news: It's actually worth the price.

Bad news: It costs too much for the average schlub to profit from it.

If you thought it couldn't get any worse...

10:15PM EDT October 30. 2012 - Luke Skywalker and Han Solo are joining Mickey Mouse, Buzz Lightyear and Iron Man in Disney's roster of heroes.

Disney is buying Lucasfilm for $4 billion, adding the legendary Star Wars franchise to the entertainment giant's stable of characters. Lucasfilm is 100% owned by founder George Lucas. The purchase culminates a one and a half year pursuit of the Lucas empire, Disney's CEO said.

Disney expects to more aggressively expand the Star Wars film schedule, Iger said in a statement. Following the release of Episode VII in 2015, "our long term plan is to release a new Star Wars feature film every two to three years," Iger said.

Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX, Iger said, would follow "probably on a cadence of every other year and then go from there. . . . The (first) film is in early stage development right now."

on the disney/star wars thing...

i don't care, they cant make it worse than lucas himself did

if lucas did episodes 7-9 they'd be about how the grandson of jar jar binks and c3p0 have to save endor from another clone of jango fett who is getting vengeance on the jedi for the death of his "father" and "brother"

but it would be ok, because lucas would have had the entire thing written back in the 70s but didnt make the movies because there wasnt a high enough level of technology for any of us to smell the level of crap he was making from miles away
