FBI

So watching Die Hard 4.0 tonight, which I've not seen before.  And they're at the FBI building.  And I'm all .. hey I was there this Black Friday .. nine years ago! :)  It wasn't open because of the Thanksgiving Day long weekend, so I didn't get to have a tour.  Oh well..

Inspired by XKCD..

Crazy to think a game dated 1991 still works in Windows 7 :)

But there is no escape.. you can outrun the first one, but another will come along and grab you anyway..

More bucky!!

Spent entirely too much time today playing with my bucky magnets :)

But hey, it was hot, and didn't feel like doing much else...

Other than that, caught up on some news feeds, did the shopping, did a bit of house tidying etc.

So my ThinkGeek package arrived today.  

*blink*

Yes it got here in three and a half days.  So I would have been happier if I'd paid half the postage and had it take twice as long to get here.  hrmmm.

But anyways.

So people got lots of cool stuff.  The Khet game looked like it'd be fun, although a lot smaller than Laserwar.  And the "black light" desk lamp (that was actually just blue I think) looked friggen spectacular in a dark room!

But my toy was the Bucky Balls.  Actually ball-bearing sized magnets that are *extremelly* cool.  I'd seen the video and a guy at work had a set, so I had to get myself some :)

http://shop.lego.com/HolidayShop/festivefun.aspx - inspired me to dig out some Lego on the weekend

Day went very quickly today.  Not sure why.  Maybe cause was "playing" with some more fun stuff rather than having to deal with too much crap.  

Went for a walk with the sweetie tonight and did some gardening and trivia night research.  So pretty successful day really.
