Today seemed like a pretty perfectly lazy day. I got up fairly early, but accomplished nothing in the morning other than some TV-watching and web browsing. I watched 50 First Dates which didn’t suck as much as I thought it would. I’m no fan of Adam Sandler or Drew Barrymore, but both were very tolerable in this movie. In fact, I might even be able to say I liked this movie. :eyepopping:
I did some work in the afternoon, building a computer for a client. The computer wouldn’t boot when I turned it on. It just powered up and nothing came on the screen. Usually this means there’s a problem with the CPU, the motherboard, or the hard drive cables are plugged in backwards. I did the usual tricks… unplugging the hard drive cables completely, uninstalling and reinstalling the CPU… nothing worked. So, I just unplugged it. The rest of the diagnosis, which involves me dissecting one of my own computers for parts, is time consuming and didn’t seem suitable for such a relaxing Saturday afternoon.
Tonight I went to see Gary and Laura’s second wedding. They were originally married in front of a Justice of the Peace in a courtroom, but they wanted to save some money and have an actual wedding with the dress and the flowers and the reception too. So, that was tonight. It was pretty cool, actually. His parents are Christian, and she is part Native Indian. So, the minister read a Longhouse People poem thanking the stars, the moon, the sun, the animals, the forest, the Earth, etc. Her father performed an Ojibway blessing with incense and an eagle’s wing. It was cool. We don’t get enough exposure to other cultures in our daily lives, and this was a great way to see it. 🙂
