Movies that are numbers

My first three classes went well this week. In each of them there is no final exam (yay!) but they all consist of large projects that we begin immediately (holy snorks!). My other two classes would have started on Monday, but that's Labor Day-bor. So they'll star tomorrow.

I also spent a good portion of the week fuming at Edmonton Transit. I thought I had a perfect bus route figured out, as the route 112 bus is only a block from my house and goes directly to City Center Campus. Unfortunately, it stops running at 6 PM ish, so I had to improvise my way home. That meant walking a few blocks to the LRT, taking route 4 to Bonnie Doon Mall, and walking from there. That took about an hour and a half. Upon investigating my other options, I found that the route 8 bus goes right from downtown to Bonnie Doon. Also, the bus I take to my morning classes only runs every half hour, and it arrives at the Jasper Place campus at either 7:31 or 8:01. So I'm either late for class or a half hour early. Weak.

Wow, that's a lame story. Here's another one: our refrigerator decided to take another day and a half off. It's in a freakin' union or something. Fortunately it's back to working order, but I still don't trust it.

Watched “9” on opening night with a bunch of people. It's a decent enough movie. Very cool visuals, but very thin on plot and character. Thinking about seeing it? Well, it was based on a short film of the same name, featured here:



If you enjoyed that and would like to watch it six times in a row with a much larger budget, then the movie is definitely for you. I enjoyed it enough that I'd consider getting it on DVD if it had really good extras. Maybe I'll do a full review later in the week.

More move-ins were announced at church today. The ward is still around 65% female.

For your videos, cats in bathtubs!
