Eskil just announced he needs to take a shit and read comics. I think this is an important announcement and I take it upon myself, as my duty to the humankind to announce this important event to the world. No longer shall the weak and hungry of the world wonder about what eskil does before he goes to sleep.

In other news the 1.50 beer and free bbq afternoon at lucky 13 was not on this saturday as apparently no one showed up, which I don't get. Ok it was some crappy local beer this time around and the bbq is not that great. But I think people are weird.

I'm now officially a leach as I finally conned a piece of hardware out of Eazel, well you can't call it that, because I just asked and they said "ok". So I have a cool brand new laptop so that I can actually compile nautilus and do some work. In the meantime I've done a bunch of completely unrelated stuff that was very low on the priority queue, just because I felt like that. Basically I suddenly had an urge to do things that are completely unnecessary if I can't work on the highest priority thing.

To change the topic to something completely unrelated. I've finally realized what I like about the gnome politics. It's the whole kindergarten aspect of the whole thing. Unfortunately then I read a cnn story about the reform party, which makes us look like a bunch of incredibly sane and serious individuals who are completely focused at the job at hand, rather then squabbling (again I bet I didn't spell that right) about who gets to control what completely un important part of gnome. And all this time I though we were quite silly. Darn. I've watched life of brian today and the people's front of judea (or was it the judean people's front?) fighting among themselves rather then the evil empire really seemed appropriate. I think we really need to become more silly. But then again this week is LWE, which means:

Horror movie music

Yet another conference to get drunk on with fellow gnome hackers

So there's definately a chance to become more silly, at least for a week. Given current state of affairs this will probably turn out to be quite a silly week. I intend to kill quite a few braincells and get absolutely no work done this week. Oh wait, my bosses might read this. No, I intend to work extra hours this week, shall drink absolutely no alcohol and shall sleep for at most 15 minutes a day.

As a closing comment on today's diary, eskil has apparently finished taking a shit. I haven't actually gone in and confirmed this fresh piece news, so it should be treated as a rumor at this point.
