Just got my raise letter; it's a very nice round number.  Alas, now I'll NEVER be able to leave.

Kath and I finally saw Indiana Jones last night, and we were joined by slimbiscuit and her husband-to-be, who were ever so kind to wait for Kath to be healthy enough to get out of the house.  I can't necessarily speak for their experience, but I had already been warned about the sucktasticness and, to that end, I was, sadly, not let down.  My friend Steve said it best (and I'm paraphrasing):  "As soon as I saw a CG hedgehog within 5 seconds of the opening credits, I knew I was in trouble." 

Kath is out and about tonight; I will be home, trying to finish MGS4 and fighting off what might be a cold.  The dogs have been KILLING us all week.  Normally, when it's bedtime, they sleep for a few hours in the hallway and then start crying and scratching anywhere between 2-5am.  This week, however, they've started to cry and scratch within 15 minutes of me closing the door, and we've been at a loss to figure out how to get them to stop; even with earplugs and the rumble of the A/C, their high-pitched yelping still comes through. 

Tech question for you:  what's the best way to record a Skype call?  I'm putting a podcast together with a friend who lives in Toronto; aside from us each recording our own audio and then editing it together, is there a standalone program that can do it?  I tried HotRecorder, but it doesn't work; I'm tempted to buy Propaganda which is a pretty nice podcasting suite but I can't tell if it has that ability.  Any help would be appreciated.

    So I guess I'm retiring this blog. Part of me feels like I need to make some sort of eulogy or something; part of me just wants to move on already.…

    Kinda hard to imagine Thomas Pynchon (and not, say, Tom Robbins) writing this paragraph, but there it is on p. 99 of "Inherent Vice":…
