So yea, things have been rather hectic lately with the onset of xmas (1 week!! whoo!!). Today I finished almost all my shopping. I'm getting a lot of gift cards this year, since I'm too lazy to look for individual gifts. Plus I just plain suck at finding things people like. Best to just give em cash or a gift card so they can go out and satisfy themselves.
I managed to program for like 5 hours this week, and that was just Wed night. I actually got Katana to compile clean again with the List Box widget code in place, so that was nice. The widget itself still needs to be debugged however.
I saw House of Flying Daggers friday night - what an awesome movie. Zhang Zhiyi is the most beautiful woman I've ever seen. The movie had some awesome fight scenes, and as always the originality of the fighting was superb. My favorite was the bamboo forest. You'd immediatly think of the scene from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but it wasn't like that at all. The story was great too, with lots of twists, only all the twists happened within like the last 30 minutes of the movie, which was pretty crazy.
Oh yea, me and my friends started swordfighting again. We use bamboo training swords called Shinai and we pad up in hockey helmets and lacross/hockey gear and just go at each other. We broke/damaged two shinais that night alone, we were swinging so hard. I have a couple bruises and rashes. I had my digicam but totally forgot about it. I'll definetly take pics and videos this tuesday when we fight again.
