That’s a direct quoted rule from my book of rules.
I often pause and reconsider decisions ad nauseam. It has always been my nature to be indecisive, but more often than not it’s just laziness on my part. When in doubt, taking the road most traveled offers fewer risks. It also tends to put off everything I need to accomplish.
All that to say, I’m glad I followed my instincts and accomplished something this past few days. I took in three movies I’d heard a lot of. Slumdog Millionaire was quite good, excellent storytelling skills on the director’s part. The Wrestler was raw to the point of reality tv, I enjoyed it very much. Gran Torino was a chance to see Clint Eastwood directing himself, and although a bit slow the movie does immerse you in. I paused a bit before every movie hoping I was not going to be trapped in boredom land. I’m glad I chose Slumdog first.
I also went to my friend E’s get together. Great evening. We all particularly enjoyed the gift exchange game. I have played this version of pick or steal game but the additional twist (remove an item of clothing to prevent your gift to be stolen) added a whole dimension to it. Not recommended for family gatherings though. It was all in good fun. I got some tupperware to show for it.
I also took the plunge in finally switching from Suse 10.3 to Ubuntu. No complaints so far. I actually got my iPod working with Songbird today which is very close to freeing me of booting into the Windows partition altogether. I have to figure out how to permanently disable the keyring password request that popups in Evolution altogether. I have managed to reset it to the same password than my login, but since I’ve switched to KDE (not a fan of Gnome yet) there doesn’t seem to be a way to automatically take it the first time.
No luck on the station check this week, believe it or not. I fell asleep in Sunday from noon to about past five. I made the seven o’clock showing of Gran Torino just as the credits started rolling.
I have to make a list of things that need to be done, they keep piling up.
