08:25 am - Busy weekend - a boring chronolog
A boring chronolog. No significant thoughts here. Move along. :-)
I spent a bunch of Saturday evening with vettybird, ottercat, wolfieboy, and 3 others who's LJ names I don't know. We went to eat Ethiopian food, and I was quite pleased to discover that there was a decent Ethiopian restaurant in Seattle. Then we went to Twice Sold Tales, which is a nice used bookstore right across the street from the Ethiopian restaurant.
Then I went to see Fahrenheit 9/11, which I thought was very interesting. At one point in the movie, Michael Moore made a point of showing exactly how nasty war is, even for people who aren't combatants, and that was a good lesson, even if it was very unpleasant to watch. There's more to the movie, but I'll have to think longer before saying anything about it.
On Sunday, I was tired for a lot of the day. I did some remote fixing of rosencrantz319's computer. I was tired of it being a pain to install tinyfugue, so I modified the rather broken
.src.rpm so that it worked. That took a lot longer than just getting it on his computer, and I took a nap and went to see Spiderman 2 in the middle of the operation. Spiderman 2 was really pretty good. A lot more character development.
