Danielle and I had a great weekend, although she's been fighting a some sort of bug, so she's been kinda sicky on and off. But we did manage to get out and have some fun.
The Matrix: Reoladed. We actually went to see it twice. And I'll admit I still don't fully understand it. I'm pretty clear on everything up to the point where Neo meets The Architect. After that I have a pretty good idea what the choices are, but I can't make concrete sense of the whole thing. If anyone wants to try to explain it to me, go ahead.
I'm selling my 35mm camera. It's a Canon EOS Elan II, for you photo geeks out there. I bought it off Ebay way back in 1999. I rarely use it since I got my Canon PowerShot Digital Elph S330. I think it's time to go all-digital. My Elph will do for now, but someday I could see myself getting a nice digital SLR. In the meantime, I never really feel like lugging around my Elan with its bag and lenses and film when I can just slip the Elph in my pants pocket. That sounded dirty.
Anyway, my pal Anna is going to Italy for a month, and she's more than happy to lug the ginormous Elan (with two handy zoom lenses) all over Europe. She made me an offer I couldn't refuse. I've already decided to spend the cash on my car. My JVC mp3 player and Alpine speaker system need to be installed. I don't do that crap myself anymore like I did when I was in high school. My brother once set his car on fire trying to wire up a subwoofer amp. That was funny.
So, I'm going to drop the car off Tuesday evening. I salvaged a pair of 6½" speakers from the old Honda, but the newer model takes 6" x 9" speakers in the back, so I have to spring for a pair of those. Not that I'm complaining. It ought to sound pretty nice when I pick up the car on Wednesday.
Have I mentioned how much I love my car? I think I love it more every day. Just like Danielle. I sure hope she feels better soon.
Speaking of cars, my office-mate Chris (cru) was struck by a Taxi yesterday. Any excuse to miss work, I say. Joe is off trying to close a real estate deal, so it looks like I'm going to be all alone again today. Chris is okay. I don't have the whole story yet, but I told him to explain it all in his journal.
So that's all for now. I'll post again in a few weeks. Or maybe sooner.
