It's starting to become painfully evident that I need a haircut. I'm a little loathe to mention this particular piece of my personal life, since the last time i mentioned my hair, a whole website of hair fetishists found me through search engines and started spamming me with email. Please don't do that this time people.

Didn't do very much this weekend: bought a bunch of new CDs, went shopping for Chinese restaurant dishware (got two nice tea cups and some tiny plates) and watched Yojimbo [Kurasawa], and Wonderboys, both of which were very good, and not nearly as depressing as Requiem for a Dream. A bunch of us from work went to see that one last week, and while it's also a very good movie, it was obviously written and directed by someone who hates life.

Left say2 alone for now and did a little hacking on new goo innards. Probably just futzing around right now, but i did decide to go ahead and use antlr (a better yacc) and C++ this time. Amusingly that seems to have coincided with some sort of C++ revival -- several people have brought it up recently and i noticed that Advogato's main page has an article about it. Really it's very simple: C++ is not evil, but people who use C++ because they don't know how to code, that is evil.

I haven't had time lately to do even the most minimal of tasks (buy groceries, pay bills, etc). I'm really looking forward to Christmas break. Part of this is my own fault, though, i think maybe sometimes i enjoy having too much to do. We have some insane January deadline at work and still i find time to hack on my own projects a little bit. Whee...
