This 'N That...

Was in at Best Buy for a bit before they closed...LCD HD TV's are finally coming down in price...If I wait long enough, maybe they'll pay me to have one...I need a bigger monitor, but prices are still a bit too high, although that 24" BenQ at $650 is tempting with all it's included inputs as well...could use game systems on it and HD cable too...Finally got to see an Apple 23" Cinema Display hooked up - very nice, but not buying at $1049...Played around with Leopard for a bit...looks good, Dock is a little different to look at though...Spaces is cool, nice to see them catch up to Linux...the new Finder is better, and the really cool thing is Quick Look - see your stuff without having to double click on it and open another program...docs, pics, movies, all work right in the Finder...Was thinking of getting an Apple keyboard, but can't decide which one, although the new ultra thin one is remarkably easy to type on, but the wireless one is missing a number pad and I need that...

Wandered around Chapters with a friend for a bit today too...it really takes the steam out of buying books when you know what your dollar is worth and you look at the cover prices and you see you have to pay ten dollars plus more just because you live in Canada...hello, Amazon and slow Canada Post...

We hit Williams Coffee Shop after and they make a good Lemon Meringue pie and wicked hot Apple Cider...if the sign was right, they sell whole cakes and pies for 14.99 too...that'd be alright if it included some of those awesome looking and ridiculously high cheesecakes too...

Should be an interesting time on TV now with the writer's strike...say goodbye to late night TV for a while, or hello to reruns...nobody there to write those monologues for David, Jay, Conan, et al...oh well, more time for TV on DVD...and if you haven't seen it yet, check out Scrubs, now in its last season...sometimes silly, but always funny with a heart medical comedy that's flown under the radar for the last six or so years...check out the DVD's or reruns where you can...I picked up season 2 from Blockbuster tonight, so off to watch some DVD...

I don't typically watch night-time TV anyways but this gives me an excuse to bite into my newly purchased copy of "My So-Called Life"!

Sounds cool. Maybe these strikes will have people looking for better entertainment than just watching whatever's on.
