is an interesting little article from The Register regarding a BBC article
titled "Temperatures 'to decrease'" and the bullying blogger who had it
changed to "Global Warming 'dips this year'".

Completely unrelated, a story's floating around the office about...

OK, so, this lady had a boa constrictor as a pet, and as pet-owners seem to
be wont to do she had the snake sleep with her. After a time, the lady
noticed that the snake started acting weird; it stopped eating and sometimes
in the middle of the night it would drop to the floor and just stretch out.
Concerned, she took the snake to the vet and explained the situation. After
looking up some information on boas, the doctor told the lady she had to put
the snake down: it was preparring to eat her.

If this were an email, I'd suggest you check it out on Snopes (I can't get
there at work), but I still think I'm gonna have nightmares for a week.

Part of me expects that, in my circles, I'm the most likely to know but:
does anyone know when Firefox 3 is supposed to be out of Beta? It promises
to fix a lot of the speed and memory problems that Firefox 2 has, and that
will make me a very happy web crawler.

I'm achingly sad right now, though I can't really put my finger on a definite source. Anastasiya stood me up tonight, I think that has a big thing to do with it. Nothing big, just that we were supposed to get together today and do stuff for the RPG and I never heard from her. No call or anything.

I watched the movie eXistenZ tonight. About time, too; I think it's been sitting on my coffee table for a month. It was meh. A nice premise, but poor execution. It felt choppy and half-formed, hard to follow, and ultimately meaningless. It tried to say something philosophic, I think, but just ended up preaching the evils of video games, I think. That left a sour taste in my mouth, too.

Checked my finances, and actually got a little boost of good-stuff from it, which was unexpected. I still have *lots* of debt, especially if you count my car and my house, but I've made what feels like significant headway on my credit card debt, which is very cool.

I don't want to go to sleep; I don't want it to be tomorrow. Because right now I don't feel like I have anything to look forward to.
