I almost feel like I shouldn't bother posting after that image. That's another movie ("Leave Her to Heaven") for the netflix queue. I think I should just watch everything that Vincent Price ever thought of doing.
So -- after a couple of weeks, I feel like I understand Twitter. Twitter is IRC, but with a 140 character limit on your lines. You use it for little conversations or to say something to a bunch of people all at once. In its way, it's the single channel format which makes it better in a way than IRC.
You use Facebook for more permanent status updates -- things you're going to be doing, events coming up, and to add applications until your facebook page looks like Homer's first web page.
You use Livejournal when you have a lot to say. In its way, Twitter and Facebook really do LJ a lot of good. It ensures that the posts that do show up are actually thoughtful, long ones, rather than "So, I woke up today -- like I do every day. And I got breakfast -- like I do every day. And then I contemplated the horrors of being single -- like I do every day. Then I bitched about work -- like I do every day...." etc, etc.
My new TV is going to be here sometime between 4:30 and 6:30p, so I'm setting about the task of untangling the mess which is all of my game consoles so that I can pull the TV off the table and free up space for the new one. I think my game console situation will be less crazy after putting it all back together because the new TV is a flatscreen.
The first thing I watch on it is going to be Blade Runner -- if anyone's interested, let me know.
EDIT: Also, if you wanted to know why I watch hockey, look at this. That game ended 3-2 and if Crosby had scored there, it would've been tied and gone to overtime.
As a goalie, I watch that and I know Varlamov really didn't deserve that save. He was playing way too far out to the left, but you gotta love it when a sure goal like that is denied.
