this was the dream i had last night:
today's weather was just like yesterday - meaning it rained throughout the day - except it was 30 degrees colder. i programmed a bit before spending the rest of the day playing bioshock, which i finally installed. thank god the weekend is coming up because i don't know how much work i would've done now that i have a major bioshock addiction. although the game is a first-person-shooter, much of it is still about exploration, set in this retro-futuristic art deco underwater city, where citizens have been genetically modifying themselves. i've been playing it on my macbook pro, which can be difficult because it's missing the crucial right mouse button (i can always attach an USB mouse though). i tried to hook it up to the LCD monitor for that big screen experience but i don't think windows XP likes that very much.
my favorite thing to do in bioshock is use my power of telekinesis and throw things around. a simple hat can become a deadly projectile weapon when launched like a bullet. too bad i can't pick up enemies and throw them around too.
my father came over in the afternoon to show me the printed egyptian photos that just arrived in mail (that was fast, they ordered them monday night and they got here today). my mother picked all the photos that had her in them so what little there was of egypt could only be seen in the background. they went with snapfish because winkflash printed all my photos really dark the last time i used them. the photos themselves are cheap (4x6 anyway); the basic shipping was more expensive than the price of the prints. later i went with him next door to star market to pick up some groceries. as soon as i got back home, my mother called me, said star market just called her, apparently my father left his wallet on the counter. i ran across the street to retrieve it.
