Its spring break time, and though I’m not sure “break” is the right word for it, I’m enjoying myself. I’m finally getting caught up on lots of paperwork, house cleaning, emailing, and cooking.
Yesterday I bought the new Bright Eyes album “Digital Ash in a Digital Urn,” and its awesome. Bright Eyes got boring over the past few years because he has always sounded exactly the same, but Digital Ash in a Digital Urn is a great new twist.
On Monday Kristin and I watched I [heart] Huckabees. Its a pretty weird movie, but fun in its quirky ways. Mark Wahlberg (Marky Mark) is a hilarious disillusioned guy on an existentialist quest. He gets really pissed at people for not caring about the world’s oil problems, which is how I feel all the time about our meat-eating problems. Both are so bad for the environment and our lives! Arg! That said, it wasn’t the killer movie I was hoping for.
If you’re in Minneapolis or St. Paul, MN, you should check out Ecopolitan. I ate there last week with some friends and it was amazing. We got red avocado pizza with buckwheat crust, Macademia Alfredo with fresh zucchini noodles, and a raw peeled coconut for dessert. All vegan!
My goals for the rest of break are to work on some of the Firefox and Camino bugs in my queue, go swimming a bunch, and write more of my English capstone. The latter task is getting me a bit stressed as I’m running out of time and I have the bulk of a 30 page paper remaining. When that is done, I can finally devote almost all of my working day to Mozilla.org stuff. I can’t wait.
