Hard Liquor and Chess, the perfect match?
I started my job today. Blah. It was orientation today. My real work starts tomorrow. Blah.
I finished Red Dragon, by Thomas Harris the other day (eventually I’ll put up a review in Kaedrin Books). I liked it, but I don’t think its as good as everyone says. I would rather watch Silence of the Lambs again. I’m now reading The Soul of a New Machine by Tracy Kidder. It doesn’t keep you on the edge of your seet, but it is a fascinating look at how the computer industry used to be (it traces the creation of a new computer that was to compete with the VAX – this is circa 1979 folks, so things are a little different now). No wonder computers and their software are so bloated today.
X – Men grossed over 50 million dollars last weekend (#2 for the summer behind MI2). Sure enough, a sequel is in the works (and a third is also rumored). I’m happy for them. And worried that the sequels’ll suck.
