Petit-P to FutureShop w/Ami & Arrested Development

Took Petit-P and his friend to FutureShop. He wanted to buy, "Halo 2" for his new XBox. While I was there I decided to buy the DVD series, "Arrested Development" Season One. It seems like a good find!

MAT105 & DVD, "The Terminal"

Stayed up late last night [@2:30AM] doing a MAT105 assignment.

Went shopping. Bought some u.w. Actually for the first time saw someone in my class at the Grande-M. Great.

Petit-P phoned ~@7:06pm saying he was caught out in the cold and needed a lift. No problem. Returned to continue watching the following DVD.

Watched the DVD, "The Terminal" w/Tom Hanks. It's a Steven Spielberg movie so one expects a bit of quality. It was O.K. An interesting tale of a person in an airport terminal.

Lots of School work & Petit-P's BornDay & Harry Potter III

Really busy now with school as we enter the last 2 weeks of the term.

Today was the arrival of, "Harry Potter III" (HPIII). Went to return my 'weekend' DVDs and pickup HPIII but no luck, all gone.

PHY101 tutorial 2nite @5:00pm.

It was Petit-P's bornday today. I didn't hear if the 'thing' that was suppose to happen at school actually happened. It sounds like it did not.

Women And Collaboration

After a computer ethics class week I've begun to think that if I were to design a collaborative piece of software that I'd hire a team of ALL women. Why? If in the 'real' world women are much better at communicating doesn't it make sense that therefore they could build a better collaborative environment? I thing so. I believe this would make a great experiment. Details to follow.

Petit-P's Bornday Party

Well I put together a little 'sex' sac for Petit-P's BornDay party. I wasn't sure how it would go over and I didn't get to go into the full explaination that I wanted to. People gathered 'round for a quick look. Not bad. I hope they enjoyed the package. Took some photos. Talked to some new people. Stay for 30-45 min.

PHY101 - MidTerm Test #2 And SciFi night

The whole week [if not past 2 week] was to be about today's PHY101 MidTerm Test #2. I'll comment on how I did once returned.

The afternoon was spent searching for some small stuff for Petit-P's upcoming Bornday.

Also bought the game, "Tribes Venegance". Was going to buy Doom3 since it's a good price, $39.99, but it wasn't clear that it was on sale or if this is the new price.

Watched the DVD, "RiverWorld". Not good. And the movie, "Battlestar Galactica 2003" the movie, which I believe is introducing a 'new' Sci-fi series. They've got some of the 'old' stuff there, but I'd like to see a lot more. But no doubt it was a much better movie then RiverWorld.

One Year Anniversary

Well it's been exactly one year since I moved out here. Some have asked me if it's gone by quickly. It's hard to say. As I look back on a collection of photos I've certainly changed. This of course begs the question how much have I changed over my life time, but that's another story.

It's been exciting and I'd honestly say that I don't regret it. I'm in the middle of some tough stuff right now at school so I not happy this second but I have no doubt that in general the move here was well worth it. If you examine this blog over the past year there's been lots of ups and downs. I been pretty positive throughout [or at least more then usual].

I was hoping to hear from some people yesterday but they didn't contact me. Little disappointing but not surprising.

In other news spent some time planning out my exam schedule and when my x-mas vacation starts.

Usual Fri.

Went to the Subway for Fri afternoon's lunch. Has some coupons so what the he$%. Bought lots of little things pillows, uw and a new game. The game is XXX the racing game. It only comes on DVD which is fine with me. Unfortunately it's copy protection doesn't seem to be working on my machine. Upgrading to the latest Far Cry, played briefly.

Watched the DVD, "The Medallion" with Jackie Chan. Exactly what you would expect.

First part of Petit-P's Gift

Went and got the first part of Petit-P's gift. Details to follow in 2+ weeks. Picked up the two XX and also visited his x'xxxxx to pickup 2 xxxxx.

Unfortunately as I was doing all of this Petit-P phoned and asked about the last custom photo I had done of him. Since I had concerns about if I was going to his bornday party I asked him and he said no. It's going to be very difficult to give him my gift if I'm not there. It's a 'group' gift really.

Later that night on Messenger he finally allowed me to come after I suggest a scenerio that would work. Never the less it made me feel ackward. Oh well, moving on.

I'm thinking of creating some party packages. Only a thought.

A Week before

I was happy to be invited to Petit-P's place for diner. I had not gone over in any formal way for a while. We sat down for diner, as meat pie. Not my favourite. :-( , however the home made 'jam' was great, so maybe that makes up for that. I had luckly remembered to have a drink of water before going in as I always get thirsty when I'm there. Petit-P had got his hair cut the previous day and his Mom pointed it out. I had noticed it before. I'll have to hold off on my opinion. Since this was suppose to be a 'Bornday/Arrival Anniversal' I put together some things quick for Petit-P since they only told me a day or two before the event. I gave him a orange shirt and two custom football photos I had developed. One photo was good it was him with Conan in front of the team. However when Japan Camera printed it it needed to be cropped and unfortunately there was no good place to crop it. The other photo was of just him with a B/W background. The 'technique' is interested but a) there was some problems with the color areas 'leaking' over and I don't think anyone was a fan of the face he was making in the photo. $2/photo (5x7).

The night continued and Petit-P did the usual. Goofed around, took some photos, watch some, "Family Guy", played "Playstation". I'm afraid that since this day was created because his Mother didn't want to celebrate my anniversary on the proper day it wasn't as 'exciting' as it was suppose to be.

Long day @School

Another long day at school. Two assignments due today. Physics and Math. Afterwards did the usually Grande-M and magazine visit. Petit-p sent me some photos he took at school. There looks like at least 2 or 3 that I can modify.

Finished watching the DVD, "Thirteen".
