Should you go see The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King? Only if you want to see the greatest fantasy movie ever. All three of the movies have been wonderfull, but this one is hands down the best of the three. We are going to see it in the theater at least once more.

Started playing Planetside again. They did a funny thing for the holidays. All of the soldiers helmets have been turned into Santa hats. When a player is killed their backpack turns into a stack of presents and some of the trees have Christmas lights. I still like playing this game alot. It provides me with a simpler game than Everquest, which always requires a great deal of attention to play.

It's like some kind of freakin plague.

Everyone is sick, L is home in bed. Everyone at work is sick or has been sick. I woke up this morning with a headache and I'm more tired than normal. It's like some kind of freakin plague.

I can only hope that the intense need I have to see The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King will keep me healthy. The reviews are in and everyone loves it. That additional push has sent me into a frothing at the mouth frenzy to see it. I must see it, my precious.

Nightmare Before Christmas

Lyrics: What's This?

What's this? What's this?
There's color everywhere
What's this?
There's white things in the air
What's this?
I can't believe my eyes
I must be dreaming
Wake up, Jack, this isn't fair
What's this?
What's this? What's this?
There's something very wrong
What's this?
There's people singing songs

What's this?
The streets are lined with
Little creatures laughing
Everybody seems so happy
Have I possibly gone daffy?
What is this?
What's this?
There's children throwing snowballs
instead of throwing heads
They're busy building toys
And absolutely no one's dead
There's frost on every window
Oh, I can't believe my eyes
And in my bones I feel the warmth
That's coming from inside
Oh, look
What's this?
They're hanging mistletoe, they kiss
Why that looks so unique, inspired
They're gathering around to hear a story
Roasting chestnuts on a fire
What's this?
What's this?
In here they've got a little tree, how queer
And who would ever think
And why?
They're covering it with tiny little things
They've got electric lights on strings
And there's a smile on everyone
So, now, correct me if I'm wrong
This looks like fun
This looks like fun
Oh, could it be I got my wish?
What's this?
Oh my, what now?
The children are asleep
But look, there's nothing underneath
No ghouls, no witches here to scream and scare them
Or ensnare them, only little cozy things
Secure inside their dreamland
What's this?
The monsters are all missing
And the nightmares can't be found
And in their place there seems to be
Good feeling all around
Instead of screams, I swear
I can hear music in the air
The smell of cakes and pies
Are absolutely everywhere
The sights, the sounds
They're everywhere and all around
I've never felt so good before
This empty place inside of me is filling up
I simply cannot get enough
I want it, oh, I want it
Oh, I want it for my own
I've got to know
I've got to know
What is this place that I have found?
What is this?
Christmas Town, hmm

Careful where you point that Bluetooth

Somewhere, sometime, when you least expect it, you could get Bluejacked.

Heh, kinda cool idea. Send random people anonymous messages over Bluetooth. Ignoring the potential for real hacking, I think I'll send a few random people a bluejack message.

More phone talk

Been playing with the new phone more. I put this GameBoy Emulator on it. Very cool. Hard to find the roms, but there are some cool public domain games out there.

I have been looking into developing a few Java apps on it. J2ME looks pretty interesting. It should be pretty easy to write an app using it.

The camera in the phone is not very good at all, but its fun. Here are a few recent images:

We both got new phones. Man these phones are cool. Intenet, email, cameras, pda functionality, games, etc... I got the Nokia 3650 and L got the Sony Ericsson T616.

'tis the Season

Finished playing Prince of Persia, the Sands of Time on Monday. What a great game.

I simply can't stand waiting for The Lord of the Rings - Return of the King later this month. Early reviews make it sound like the best of the 3 movies. There are also rumours that Peter Jackson may be making The Hobbit when he is done with King Kong.
