Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom

Played some Emperor tonight, I'm on Zhou 5, just started. The begining of every city starts pretty well the same in every scenario, setting up food, industries etc. I got Daoism in this scenario, and Confusionisn, and boy am I confused! haha. I made a joke. Anyway, I just got my city up and running tonight, maybe I'll start working on achieving the scenario goals next session.

Nova: Galileo's Battle for the Heavens

Just watched this episode. Pretty good, he had an interesting life. Too bad the BS he had to put up with in relation to the church still goes on today, 400 years later. I guess we can take solace in the fact that history will show who was right and who was wrong, as it has with Galileo.

In this two-hour special, NOVA celebrates the story of the father of modern science and his struggle to get Church authorities to accept the truth of his astonishing discoveries. The program is based on Dava Sobel's bestselling book, Galileo's Daughter, which reveals a new side to the famously stubborn scientist -- that his closest confidante was his illegitimate daughter, Sister Maria Celeste, a cloistered nun.

My Dead Blog

Welcome to my dead blog. The blog that never gets updated cuz I have nothing to say and my work is killing me. Where I come home so tired, I sit in front of the TV like a zombie, too tired to do anything constructive, yet unable to sleep. Hungry, but no food in the fridge. Lying in dread of the next day, snow, wind, cold, I hate my job, my life. Oh god, put me out of my misery! This is my dead blog, my blog of death. A hot shower, warm, dry clothes and to sit by a roaring fire in a fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate would be nice right about now.Four more hours...

My Tooth

I've had a rather foul taste in my mouth the last few days, even tho I've been brushing my teeth faithfully with my electric toothbrush. With a brand new head no less. Then today I noticed one of my teeth felt like it had a sharp edge to it. After getting home, I stuck a mirror in my mouth so I could get a good look at my upper teeth. Sure enough, looks like one of my fillings fell out! What happened to the filling I do not know, I assume I must have swallowed it. [yuck!] Its one of those old style silver fillings, I hope I don't die of mercury poisoning because I swallowed it. That would suck.

Anyway, there's a big gaping hole where my filling used to be. [I guess that's why they call them cavities] I used a pair of pointy tweezers to scrape out the food stuck in there. It was very smelly! [double yuck!!] Then I used a q-tip with most of the cotton taken off so I could jam it in there and clean it out. Then I put some disinfectant on some cotton and fill the cavity with it.

Not sure how much it will cost to get a new filling in there. More than I can afford, no doubt, and I'm sure they'll want to do major renovations once they get a look at the rest of my molars. F*ck that, I'm gonna do some research on the internet and do it it myself. I got a B&D drill, some duct tape and a glue gun. How hard can it be?

God I hate Connie Chung!

Watching her on CNN, what the hell is she doing on there? She's a low-rent tabloid journalist, totally inappropriate for a serious news show. The way she keeps interupting her guests, she seems to think her questions are more important than their answers. She's driving me batty! I remember the first day I saw her on CNN, I think it was her first day, one of her fake eyelashes wasn't attached properly and it was hanging there askew, like a big, black scab. You could tell it was totally irritating her, she was blinking like 100 times a minute and it looked really screwed up. They went to a commercial, and when they came back, her eyelash was still hanging there all messsed up! WTF!

On another note, the people on the news are all freaking out about the sniper saying he will shoot children. Did I imagine he already shot a child last week or did that really happen? So him actually shooting a child is nothing to freak out about, but saying he will is? In my opinion, it doesn't matter who he shoots, they are all equally innocent, all equally undeserving. And while I'm at it, what's with the cops investigating this case? The killer leaves a note at the crime scene, but they can't find it, so the killer has to phone a tips line and say 'Hello! I left you a note!'. Doesn't exactly inspire confidence.

That's all for now. Connie Chung's over, I can breathe again.

Windows Update Hell

I was doing the Windows Update thing and I wish I hadn't. After rebooting, my computer couldn't access the internet anymore and its running like shit. Got the internet back, gotta work on the shitty performance next. Damn you Microsoft, I should have left well enough alone!

And then I was trying to use some CSS2 stuff and couldn't get it to work. After banging my head into the wall for a few hours, I found out a bunch of stuff in CSS2 isn't even implemented and so it was all a total waste of time. Doh!
