Journal Entry: Thu Jan 4, 2007, 1:58 PM
  • Mood: Tender
  • Reading: In the Service of the Sword edited by David W
  • Watching: Latter Days
  • Playing: Zelda: the Twilight Princess
  • Eating: Sweet Basil Eggplant /w Beef from the Pink Pe
  • Drinking: Dr. Pepper
So... In a gutsy move, I've decided not to embark upon another soapbox rant today, and will instead attempt to entertain you with more traditional journaling fodder.

First off, Cheers and a very Happy New Year to you all.  My deviantART New Year's Resolution this year (as last year's remains unfulfilled) will be to average more than one deviation a month.  What's your devious resolution?  (see new poll question on journal page)

A big thank you to everyone who helped with or participated in some way in the first-ever deviantART Presents dAPresents tour featuring BT & Thomas Dolby in a Virtual Battle for Sonic the Hedgehog...  Errmmm... or was it a Battle for Sonic Virtuosity...  or maybe a Sonic Battle for Virtual Supremacy.  At any rate, it was a resounding success (meaning lots of fun was had by those who attended) and I believe it bodes well for future :dapresents: events.

On a side note, I've found I'm quite attached to a new website called twitter and would love for you all to join me on there.  Twitter is essentially an abbreviated and easier to update blog.  You simply update twitter when and as you wish with a couple sentences.  Could be a running tally of fashion disasters you've seen, or a quick log of social adventures, or quick blurbs on movies you've seen.  Its up to you.  You can post via AIM, Google Talk, twitter.com or even from your mobile via SMS (my personal favorite).  And you choose how and when you receive updates from those you'd like to follow.

I've also discovered a neat little site called MyChores which is helping me to beat down my natural tendency to procrastinate on household chores by scheduling them for me.  Its so easy, really.  All I had to do is set up an account and log in daily to check my chores and now my roommate has stopped nagging me about how often the toilet needs scrubbing.  The options for customization are pretty comprehensive.  Way to go Aimee!

And speaking of awesome things I've stumbled on in the last month, I finally watched Latter Days, a movie my roommate owns and keeps recommending but that I had never gotten around to watching.  Nick, the new beau, was reluctant about watching the movie for a number of reasons.  He was recalcitrant in naming them but I think they have something to do with his Mormon upbringing and his own struggles reconciling his sexual orientation to his faith.  I've walked that hard and painful journey myself, so I can understand its not easy to open up about it for some people.

But I digress.  The movie, I thought, was good.  I honestly haven't been more emotionally affected by a film in a long time, if ever.  Not even Brokeback Mountain hit home as much for me.  I would highly recommend it, and its one of those that bears watching the whole way through before you form a judgement of it.

I'm off.  Catch you all later!
