I saw Gods and Generals last night. It's the prequel to Gettysburg. I quite enjoyed it. It focused on the story instead of the action. This is a movie for intellectuals and not for the common masses. I found it a bit long (about 4 hours) but it delved into the caracters. The people in that era were really religious...
I would have liked to get more of an overview of the Revolutionary War but, since the movie was caracter-based instead of event-based, I can understand why they did it like that. I really got the feeling that I was there. I was completely cut-off from the rest of the war, I focussed on a few generals (is it just me or were there way too many officers in that war???) and I really felt the misery and loneliness that people must have experienced.
Bruce Boxleitner, Billy Campbell, Jeff Daniels, Robert Duvall and Kali Rocha (also seen in Buffy playing Elfrek) did an amazing job in bringing to life these legendary figures. All in all, a good movie. I'll buy the trilogy when it comes out on DVD...

Saturday morning was very bad and I was not looking forward to having a house full of people on Saturday evening (we had a baby shower at our place...). I gave a pretty cool lecture on Reiki in the afternoon and I got to spend some time with close friends of mine afterwards. I ended up staying for dinner (which was delicious) and I had a very good time. We talked and talked and really talked. I had never revealed that much about me and I was quite uncomfortable about it at first but since we shared, it started to feel... I dunno... normal I guess... Of course, now they know way more about me than anyone else and I know it'll sound weird, but I actually feel better. There's some stuff that was said that had been bugging me forever and some experiences that I enjoyed talking about...
In retrospect, it was a good conversation. I got to know my friends a lot better too and I think we're closer now. I didn't think that was possible... Wow... the computer geek is discovering friendship... Maybe I should change the title of this Blog to the discoveries of a Computer geek... Hum... Food for thought...

Better prepare yourself, Aquarius -- you're in for an extremely hot spell. A sizzling affair is in the works, and that causal email flirtation will generate plenty of activity when it becomes real-time. Harness your creative energies and watch the sparks fly.
When I read this, I thought: "Ooooooh! These girls that I've been flirting with online... That will lead somewhere.. Finally!". LOL Of course not... After the day I just had, I understand that whoever wrote this, was talking about work. I was bored to death last week (my boss had me type contact lists in Excel) and I started talking with influential people about projects that I thought would be fun... Big mistake. Today, they all came back to me telling me that the project was a GO! and that I needed to give the requirements by the end of the day. I just finished writting them. This means that the projects are mine... So far, I'll have 2 weeks of project-related training and that's without the actual training that I'll ask my boss. Which is 2.5 weeks. When will I do all this work???? At night of course silly :0)
But the best part? They'll upgrade my server :) 2 Gb of RAM, 6 18.2Gb hard drives, 2 network cards and a Quadruple PIII 1.4Ghz Xeon Processor system. I'm in computer heaven!

We got to see the gang and we even got Tamu to come out with us and have coffee. This is how it came to pass that I had a double-date with Ceri and Tamu... I am the luckiest guy on the planet... They're a lot of fun :) Of course, to complete the evening, my electronic leashe was pulled (I got paged) around 9PM but I had a very good time.
Oh! And I got Star Trek stickers!!!! Ceri gave me a book of Star Trek stickers for my birthday!!! They are sooo cool!!! I love you Ceri!
