Last night's plan to catch Godzilla at the AFI got scrapped, as lateness occurred. [This new babysitting schedule is starting to wear on me, but more on that at a later date.] Instead, Operative X and I hit the Royal Mile, then retired to her place to watch some of Gattaca and then get distracted by fine conversation and scheming. Which lasted until all hours, and was a treat.

Hmmm, what else recently. RQ mentioned the bebe being a little sick, but that's well done with. Oh, watched Confidence on cable over the weekend. Pretty decent cast wasted on not-exciting script. And if I'm watching a movie about con men and schemes, I want exciting, folks. The real excitement was seeing Luis Guzman and Donal Logue in a car together.

Also, half-participating in a competition with other people in my gaming group to get one of my armies painted (the Tau for 40k, if you're into that sort of thing.) I'll post up the webpage here when I've, uh, actually put up the webpage.

"In my judgment, this new paradigm renders obsolete Geneva's strict limitations on questioning of enemy prisoners and renders quaint some of its provisions."
-White House counsel Alberto R. Gonzales,
writing to President Bush, Jan. 25, 2002
