Saturday Oh Saturday

As I mentioned on Friday I curled on Saturday. I did take pictures and I will post them when I get around to organizing them. Our team ended up being the second to last team but it was fun anyways. We lost our first game 12 to 1 and lost the second game 6 to 5. The point scored in the first game was my point. It was an accident that I got it but I was happy about. In the second game I got a double take-out (which means I removed two of the other teams rocks from play – see the site referenced in the post of Friday for a nice little animation to describe it). Due to this double take-out I won a cute plush monkey. I will take a picture of him as well and post it. I don’t have him with me currently because someone from my team borrowed it for the weekend. I just hope she gives him back 🙂 The event ended up making around 9000 dollars for the Hospice of Waterloo Region. It was fun but I’m sore today.
Waking Life
After curling I came home and took a long warm bath, hoping that I could minimize the aches and pains I would feel later and it seemed to work. I went out to see the movie Waking Life with my housemate and a couple of other friends. It was an interesting movie especially the visuals. My biggest complaint about the movie is that there was no plot to it and it just seemed to be philisophical ramblings. I kept thinking to myself that I was watching a pretentious “art house film”. It had it’s moments but I can seriously say I don’t want to see the movie again. I liked it the first time, even though there were moments where I wished it would end, but I don’t think I could sit through it again. So my final review of the movie is “if you want to sit around and listen to a bunch of philosophical discussion with really cool (but sometimes unnerving) animation plus you have a relatively high level of patience go and see this movie. If not then go and see something else.”
Today has been uneventful. Myself, my housemate and a friend of his went down to a used bookstore in Kitchener. They have a 50% off sale so I picked up a bunch of books. I won’t bore you will the names. Then we went to the mall for a while and then I ended up reading for a fair chunk of the afternoon. I really should have been outside. The temperature peaked at around 10 degrees Celsius today, which is very weird though nice.
Since this is getting long I better stop writing.

Curling for Charity

Tomorrow, which is Saturday on this side of the world, I will be curling for charity. For those of you who don’t know what curling is, which means your not Canadian, you can check out this link to learn about it. This site introduces you to curling and a bunch of the terms with funky little diagrams. The charity I’m curling for is the Hospice of Waterloo Region. The hospice provides a caring environment for the terminally ill in Waterloo Region.
I am going to take my digital camera so I may have some pictures to post about the whole extravaganza.

Weblogging

So here I am. Sitting in front of my computer. I just finished the game that had been sucking hours upon hours from my life and I’m learning CSS. I think I have a grasp on the basics of Cascading Style Sheets but soon I have to learn how to position things. Tables are just so logical, they make so much sense. CSS is a little more difficult but is much cleaner. I think I like it.
I’m also learning a little bit of HTML while doing this, since website design requires HTML as everyone knows. I think I’m all “learnt out” tonight and I also have to come up with a blog layout that I am satisfied with. Maybe this weekend I will take some cool digital pictures I can use to pretty up my blog.
Anyways I will be starting to regularly blog here now. At least that is the plan.
