I loved reading the breakfast pancake/waffle/french-toast remarks. It made me peckish and I wish I had a waffle maker now!

Saw a Star Wars film (A New Hope) today-- didn't set out to watch it but May the Fourth came up during dinner and we decided we needed some Jedi awesomeness. Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford are very pretty people.



A waffle iron is a good investment because it triples as a panini press and tortilla steamer in addition to you know, making waffles.

Were. Well, Ford still is. Hamill... Jesus christ, Hamill what did you DO. Ford otoh is about as dilfy as you can get, outside of Jack Layton.

This is sadly true. Mark Hamill did not age very well. Ford is still in his silver fox phase. I actually thought he looked alright in 'Morning Glory'.

Nifty! Home-made paninis, sounds fab. Waffle irons are a pain to clean, though. I suppose the non-stick ones have improved that aspect.

Anxiously hoping the Alternative Voting system gets enough support in the UK.

What is that?

What is that?

The way the current British voting system works is each person gets one vote for one political party. It's not a very good system, as their are so many political parties here you can end up with a party in power which only 30% of the population voted for. That means 70% of the population gets a leader they do not want.

The alternative voting system is basically: You give as many political parties as you want a number. The party you want to win the most gets a "1", the one after that gets a "2" and so on.

In the end the party with the least votes get's knocked out of the race, if it was your number 1, your vote will go to your number 2. If your number 2 gets knocked out of the race your vote goes to your number 3 choice. And so on until we have a winner with more than 50% of the vote.

A comparison I liked that helped people understand it was it is basically just like The X Factor (Or American idol, or whatever). You have 12 potential singers that the public vote on each week, the one with the least votes gets sent home and the vote happens again the next week with the remaining 11 singers.

Basically the UK's current voting system is like the person with the most votes out of the 12 singers is the immediate winner, rather than narrowing down the contestants each week until you get a result which over half of the voters are happy with. It's not very good.

got called into work tonight, thursday, and friday.

that'll make 60 hours this week. HELLO OVERTIME


HELLO VIDYAGAMZ
Ah, yes. The days of actually getting paid for working anything over 40 hours. I'm not sure what you do, but you'll most likely "graduate" into the salaried 40 hour week, that actually isn't a 40 hour week. I'm lucky to work for a landscape company that actually respects it's employees and doesn't have me working 60 hours a week on a 40 hour salary. Heck, I even get my Saturdays off.

Waffle Irons are not as hard to clean as they used to be. The whole "no-stick" thing has really helped. You guys have got me in the mood for waffles. Perhaps this weekend.

Before I left for work yesterday Portal 2 came in the mail. I had to just lay it on the table... still sealed and lonely.




Were. Well, Ford still is.

Even as a straight male I have to say Ford was damn good looking in Blade Runner.

I can kind of get my hair like his... I just need that trenchcoat

Absolutely nothing wrong with being in touch with your masculinity enough to admit this, for instance I feel safe saying I bet you are a fine looking man :) and for that matter I  look in the mirror and think the same thing...wait, that might be conceitedness...but whatever :)

Yes, yes it is. :D

Woke up in the afternoon today. Didn't realize how long I'd slept but it was a grey, grey day and I guess I didn't much care for getting out to face possible rainclouds. Hot tea is needed.
