Got and watched Harry Potter and my laptop is fixed again. Woohoo! Today, I went to see Men in Black II. Very awesome movie! I'm not sure if it is as good as the first one, but very close and very hilarious! Especially the Agent J scene with the big plastic tubes. That's all I'm gonna say. Too bad I accidentally spilled Sprite upon myself. Good thing it was clear and not Coca Cola or Dr. Pepper. Eeek! There was this nice poster for the Chamber of Secrets with little Dobby and his pillowcase attire, though. After the movie ended and being blinded by the sun for a few minutes, I went to a nearby electronics store. Despite being reared on PCs, those new Mac G4s with the really wide screens are awesome! *wishes for money to fall from the sky* One day, man, I'm gonna get one for my web design projects. I also got an August 2002 issue of the Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine (or OPM) from a nearby electronics store. If you are into Kingdom Hearts (yeah, this blog is suppose to be about it, right?), you should definitely go get a copy because it has 2 little snippets on the game but the big thing is the DVD-ROM has a 190 MB video. What is the video showing? Good question because you need to play it on a Sony PlayStation 2, and as you probably know ... mine is not here ... still.

I'm thinking of going today to Wal-Mart to get a copy of the Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone DVD. Lord of the Rings was way better, I know, but it is not out yet and I still like Harry and his books. I'm not a huge fanatic caught in the neverending craze or a fire-wielding anti-HP protestor. Both sides scare me actually. Especially all that merchandise at Wal-Mart in the toy section. Not just tyos: toiletries, school supplies, furniture, food, make-up, etc. and of course video games. I can see it now, next to the Harry Potter video rack are the glass video game shelves with the corresponding GameBoy Advance or Playstation version of the book. And a few games over is a copy of Final Fantasy IX -- the Greatest Hits Version no doubt. But still, it is there and not in my possession because it just won't get to my freaking doorstep from Ebay! Apparently, the seller realized 3 days after sending me the Final Fantasy games that Final Fantasy IX was still lying on the couch and sent it out last Friday, which would have been July 5th. It's been well over a week now. Hmm. I know it was sent via UPS ground, but geez, it seems the trucks are slow-moving tractors. Not that I can play if I ever do get it since the PlayStation 2 seller in another part of the country had some delays as well. A new baby. Okay, so that seller is excused up to a certain limit. I'll give it another week.

My old Pentium 166 Mhz laptop died, so I'm having to figure out how to get it up and running Windows 95 again after a total hard drive wipeout courtesy of format c: Er ... yippee. Today was my sister's first day at Driver's Education at the same driving school I went to years ago. Apparently, the teacher is just as dumb as has been, although I'm sure she has a different teacher than I do. The reason being is that my old teacher was supposedly fired for being so bad. I must confess that I learned nothing during my driver's education session. But then again, who does, really? While she was at her first Driver's Education class, I was busy trying to get a comment forms for this lovely blog (which amazingly hasn't combusted in the past 48 hours) among other things. It seems that Enetation is the only free commenting service left available for blogs. I also joined Blog Snob to increase exposure to this blog via a form of blog description rotations. The ads are at the bottom of the blog, and I will say this: The blog sites appear randomly, and I have no control over which site shows up when this blog is loaded. Some of them might be a bit on the "iffy" side, so be forewarned. *evil grin* Anyway, that's why I put it at the bottom.
