Years later

I think I was an intense gamer as a child. When I had free time, I loved my Gameboy, Nintendo and Super Nintendo. My fingers got really sore from hours of playing Street Fighter 2.

If I was at my godparents’ house, I’ll admit to being fidgety while my godfather watched a documentary or NFL game. (Please, just a few levels of Super Mario Bros 3. I have a Game Genie, so it’ll be quick.)

I was a tad annoyed with assignments in high school that required me to watch—or listen to—a news program, as the material would be discussed the following day in class.

Today, I don’t want a gaming system. I love podcasts, documentaries, and long form articles/posts. Crazy.

  1. I wouldn’t be available for their West Hollywood show in November, and Amy suggested we go to this one. Brilliant! 

Ramming speed

Our tabby cat, Monica, was trying to get into the bedroom through a door that was slightly open. (Thick carpet, so it’s difficult to move the door.)

She kept pushing her head through the door opening. Arms flailing. Pondering.

Finally, she shoved her way through like a battering ram.

It was like watching a butterfly break out of its cocoon.

The second time was less eventful. I would reference a clip from The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. In scenes where the, um, young protagonists (heroes) would morph into Power Rangers, the shot has them jumping from an invisible platform and onto the ground.

With enthusiasm.

PayPal, I’d like to use my password manager

After news broke of the eBay security breach, I updated my account passwords for eBay and PayPal1.

With my trusty password manager, KeePassX, I cloned my current PayPal entry in preparation to generate a new password. To my horror, I saw the following password requirement pop–up:

I’d like to use much more than 20 characters, and not be able to easily type my password. Kthxbai. :)
