Chicken! And a few links...

I made this: http://www.recipezaar.com/8384 (Scampi Style Chicken Thighs) today. It was... mediocre. :\ Oh well, it means I'll have leftovers and stuff for lunch tomorrow. Yay!

I found was-green-vegetables today, as I visited the fridge. If I didn't know better, it waved and winked at me, before I reached in, and exiled it to the trashcan.

Oh, yeah, and I beat Kingdom Hearts I. Total hours: around 40. Meep. Am looking at FFXII now. Unless anyone has any suggestions?

And now for a few completely different things...

By way of porsupah, http://www.furaffinity.net/view/249835/ (Image here, broken URL to ensure people don't click by accident: http://data.furaffinity.net/art/touchmybadger/ 1160527511.touchmybadger_mothafuknsextoy.jpg). No, it's not safe for work - It contains the words, "...Sex Toy!!!" and a very crudely drawn sex toy. No nudity though, just... improper usage of a sex toy. "I'm the dildo unicorn!". I snerked.)

reCaptcha: Translating books in captchas! A good idea, although I don't have anything that requires me using it. The perl module is here: http://search.cpan.org/dist/Captcha-reCAPTCHA/lib/Captcha/reCAPTCHA.pm

Awww, buggers. Silly MacConnection.

Ordered my MacBook Pro from MacConnection 10 days ago. They gave an estimated shipping in 3-7 days.

And I just e-mailed them and they told me (very apologetically) that the estimated arrival date (I'm presuming they mean the MacBook Pros arriving to their warehouse) had been pushed back to 7/17. =T.T= I've been looking forward to playing with the new machine all last week...

It's almost as if something out there doesn't want me to order the machine. It is a good deal of money that could... go elsewhere... but... I don't want to deal with my crippled iBook.

Going to go into the Apple store today, check to see if they have any in stock (maybe along with an iPod, since they've got that rebate running again) and pay the extra $50 from taxes. (MacConnection: -$150 rebate vs. Apple: -$200 edu discount + $100~ish tax.)

Please let the Apple store have MacBook Pros in stock... Please, please, please...

Woah, spiffy! I got credit for submitting a bug...

...for a Perl module I used for a class project that pulled data from IMDB::Film.

::relatively amused and pleased, having forgotten that he had e-mailed the author::

Hee~ Other google results with my name that actually have some small significance: PuzzleCrack 2005, PuzzleCrack 2006, and Google Games at UIUC

I clearly need to stop getting distracted during work. Now why was I googling my name again....? Man, this is just like surfing wikipedia....
