Just another quick spurt..

Interesting poll: What attribute do you most wish humans possessed? And yes, "fur" and "stylish, furry tail" are options. (So, what did you vote for, out of the options they present?)

"San Francisco's Canvas Gallery will host Combined Weight, a collection of work by artists from Pixar Animation Studios, 'produced in their spare time to show the world through their eyes'.

In other Apple news, a new campus is in the works, though it'll take 3-4 years to complete. It'll be about a mile from the current location.

Here's (42MB) an eleven minute look at Amon Tobin, produced by Channel 4, in 2002. Nothing revelatory, but still, interesting to actually see and hear the guy - very unassuming indeed.

What OCD doesn't stand for, but should. ^_^

Armed with several nice pieces of paper this afternoon, I was finally able to give a home to a companion I've been longing for: a coffee press. Probably not too huggable, though. And some good Lavazza espresso grind.. ah, finally - liberation from the House of Maxwell.

Ah, definitely not such a bad place to find oneself! I'd take that over the current locale any day. ^_^

Mm, I do miss being able to wander along down to the river, watch the geese and ducks go about their ways, trying to avoid the 747-swans. And the skwrls, of course, bouncing up through the fallen leaves.

Still, I suppose any relocation - as usual - rests upon finding a new client for contracting, or something longer term. I'd go for something in San Francisco in a flash, but I wouldn't be much more hesitant about something in London, both for the cultural (and culinary!) options available, and every bit as important, the chance of actually holding furry conversations without the use of a keyboard. DSL's a wondrous invention, but I'd rather not have all of my social life reliant on it.

Now, whether to enjoy that dunkel weissbier tonight, or save it for later this week.. ah, reminds me, I should check when the Chapter's Oktoberfest is being held. They wind up bringing over a couple dozen polypins direct from the Fatherland, as fresh as can be - quite different to anything bottled, and often of varieties never available outside their home region anyway.
