angels and demons

i went to watch angels and demons today. the movie was alright. the pace of the movie was definitely faster than the da vinci code and i felt that it kept my attention pretty well throughout the movie.

there were some inconsistencies with the book, but for the most part i didn’t feel that they took away from the story too much. i think it deserves more than the 38% rating that is being given by rotten tomatoes.

i still haven’t seen star trek yet and i don’t think that there are many people who want to see the movie who hasn’t seen it already. maybe i’ll make a go of it myself during the week some day. =P

at the office

so here i am at 12:45PM on a saturday in the office with the QA team. they are testing out the drop that we have handed off to them. i woke up a little past 8AM to start work on this and we’re nearing the end of testing now.

i’m pretty beat, but am happy that things seem to be working for the most part. i’m about ready to go eat lunch and crash to sleep. the big question about lunch is where to go? i don’t want to go to lunch nearby since i always eat lunch here so i think it’s time to venture off to find somewhere good to eat.

the busy day before mother’s day

so yesterday was a busy day. i woke up earlier than i usually do to go help dardy move into his new place. this new place is 7 doors down from his old place! the floorplan is the same, so he said, wherever you pick up something from the old place, put it in the same spot in the new place.

i thought that dardy would have a ton of stuff to move, but i think there were about 15 people who came to help move him over. i think everything was done in around 2 hours.

i only stayed for the first hour because i had to go back home and meet up with christi and her family. we went to straits cafe (the first time, shockingly, for me). the garlic noodles there are to-die-for! the roti is pretty good too. i think i could have a full meal on just those two things.

after that we hung out at santana row for a little bit, looked around at borders and had yogurt at pinkberry. my first pinkberry experience was only so-so, but this time i had just the plain yogurt and it was pretty good. the line went out the door and we waited probably about ten minutes to get our yogurt, but it was pretty good. pinkberry has redeemed themselves as far as i’m concerned.

after that, the rest of the day, the night, and the very late night was spent working. i think i finally gave up around 2AM and went to bed. and now here i am, up earlier than i am usually on a work day at it again.

oh, and happy mother’s day everyone!
