Ugh. Can't sleep. I think I need some meditation techniques to turn off code mode at will. As it stands I just lie there with my eyes closed, brain on overdrive.

The crawfish boil went well. As promised, there were whole heads of garlic tossed into the pot; I felt sorry for anyone who walked up late and had to walk that gauntlet of breath.

Saw Frequency over the weekend. As long as you resolve not to dwell on time paradox, it's a highly enjoyable movie. (they subscribe to the "malleable present" type of theory, where you can alter your present by diddling with your past...and as the cause of the alteration, you retain "dual memories" of your past -- the original, and the new version, which at least avoids the doppleganger problem that movies like Back to the Future suffer from, where some poor bastard with the memories of the new past gets displaced into lah-lah land). Anyway. I could go on at great length about the three major Hollywould time paradox approaches. In the case of this movie, just assume that there will be paradox and enjoy the roller coaster.

I guess I'm just going to stay up all night. I'll perk back up when my normal waking hours roll around, then crash and burn sometime after lunch.
