I got to sleep at about 1:30 or 2 thursday night. This time i remembered to set my alarm correctly, and got up at 5am.

I was lying in bed trying to motivate myself to get out of bed when the radio station i have me alarm set to started doing a really funny skit on Harry Potter. It starts out sounding like one of the radio commericals for the movie byut quickly diverges

""Oppening in theatres soon, the amazing story of boy....
'You're a wizard Harry Potter'
'I'm a _what_?'
a boy who couldn't understand what he was...
'A wizard Harry'
'A _what_?'
"you're not a muggle, you're a wizard!'
'I'm not a _what_, I'm a _what_?'
'Have you got crap in your ears Harry?!'
'Have I got _what_ in my _what_?'"

With several more iterations that i can't remember, with even more commentary intersperced that i don't remember, and finally ended with "If you've bought the books, the merchandise, or the hype, you need to see this movie." I can't really do it justice here, i just wish i could find a script or recording of it somewhere on the net =)

So anyway, after lying there listening to that, i was in a pretty good mood about being up so early, and went to take a shower. I actually got out of the apartment at just after 6:00. The freeway traffic was a little congested, but not too bad. I stopped off at a donut store on my way there, because it was my turn this week to get the friday donuts. I got to work about 7:30, played some Civ3 and won for the first time, and then got to work.

I got a decent amount of work done today, but i'm still behind. I was thinking of going in today and working some, I may go have lunch with Allyn, so i'm thinking i'll go in on sunday if i go in at all. The new code base is much more complex than the old one, and it's making my head spin =P

When i got home Gwri's new boss was visiting, so i hung out in my bedroom for while. (Our apartment looks messy enough without me sprawled out on the couch playing video games =)

When i came back out later he'd left, so i started playing Alpha Centauri on my computer. I'd be playing Civ3 if i could get the bloody thing to work =P

Then Shawkial asked if we could watch a movie of some kind and after a limited amount of debate, we settled on X-Men. About a quarter of the way through the PS2 started having problems playing it =/ I need to get a new DVD player at some point, i don't know if the X-Men DVD got damaged at some point, or if the DVD reading quality has plumeted from it's previous stellar hights but it just seems to be able to read less and less movies as time goes on.

I was kind of tired, and went into my room to lie down a little after 11, and fell asleep almost right away. I woke up at about 9, so that should be a decent amount of sleep =)
