aye matie

i went to go see pirates of the carribean last night. wow. Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow was amazing - i heard him explained as a cross between christopher lowell and steven tyler. the graphics were amazing - especially in the swordfight scenes toward the end.

Aboard the Black Pearl, infamous pirate Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) attacks the city of Port Royal and kidnaps a governor's daughter, Elizabeth(Keira Knightley). Barbossa then sets sail with his hostage toward a secret hideaway, hoping to lift an ancient curse by sacrificing her and returning a once-plundered treasure. Elizabeth's childhood friend Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) meets an eccentric seaman, Jack Sparrow, who reveals that the Black Pearl was formerly his ship, until Barbossa committed mutiny. Together, they assemble a ragtag crew and commandeer a British vessel, hoping to chase down and free both Elizabeth and Sparrow's Pearl. Following after them is the British military, led by Elizabeth's would-be fiancé, Commodore Norrington (Jack Davenport)[]

got class

i had my perl/cgi scripting class tonight and we started going over forms. i have to admit that i thought that this class was going to be a lot easier than it is. i know that one of the 'issues' that im having is that the class in taught entirely based on a windows system and i dont own a pc. i love my mac. i wouldnt trade it for a pc even if i thought that it would be easier for me to learn. but at the same time, this has presented more of a challenge than i was expecting. its a damn good thing that i got all of those mac osx books for christmas because i have been doing a lot of cross-referencing to see how to do things that i learn in class.

ms walk

well both my parents and my aunts did the ms walk this morning. their combined totals exceeded $2,000 easily. i have to come up with some kind of thank you note for the people that donated money. i think that its the least that i can do. especially considering that my parents would have never done the walk if it wasnt for me. i guess that it was a little chilly down by the beach walking the 2.5-5 miles but there were around 1,000 people walking and that was just at the one site. its weird how things like this can make you feel a little better about humanity.

ho hum

the last few days feel like they have been the equivalent of a drunken stupor. i've been living off of nicotine, chocolate milk and tylenol pm. not that i'm complaining. i do like my chocolate milk and i honestly think that tylenol pm is one of the greatest inventions of our time. but i also know that none of these are very good for me. i was going to watch a movie tonight with my dad because we both thought that there was nothing on television. so we rented the bourne identity and knockaround guys. when we got home, he remembered that the yankees were playing in tampa bay so we watched that instead. at least i will have something to watch tomorrow.
