I have a disturbingly large amount of broccoli on my plate this weekend.

First off, Friday night, Harry Potter. I don't know how much needs to be said about Harry and his wacky adventures, but I've been reading this since the first book came out in Britain, and I am hooked. It amazes me how much this book sucks me in. I normally get sucked into books, but I swear I'm addicted to HP and all of it's goodness. What's even funnier, I don't like Harry too much as a character. Sure he's interesting and angsty and all, but the two things that suck me in are Harry's past (you know the whole, good morning Harry, your life sucks, time to go be a wizard thing) and the supporting characters. Ginny, Hermione, Ron, the twins, Neville, all of the professors, etc. It's just how well developed the world is that J.K. Rowling writes about. I feel as though I can reach out and touch it, yet not too much is described so my mind can wander.

On Saturday, I will be attending WordCamp. In all honesty, I would much rather attend Sunday, but more about that later. I am really excited about the general idea, and I'm hoping the event will get me excited enough to get me writing more often. As I said, I had hoped to also go on Sunday, because I love the developer side of Wordpress, I'm even thinking I might finally release the few plugins I "wrote" (as in I wrote them, but they suck), so the extra help would have been nice, but oh well.

So why can't I spend Sunday in the city? Because I'm running in Wharf to Wharf. Yes, I'm stupid, I know, leave me alone. So pray for me, and lend me your athletic ability while you sleep till a reasonable hour.

Finally, here are a few sites I have been loving as of late.

  • Wordie - Like Flickr, but for words.
  • LibraryThing - Kinda like GoodReads, but not.

I also have very good news, which I almost forgot about.

I got my tickets to PAX! Hurrah!

Still trying to write every time I visit RC. I was thinking about going in today (who knows, maybe still will) and got a sense of guilt that I hadn't published this yet. On Thursday, the sixth of August, I came in and hung out at RC. RC invites alumni attend RC as if they never left every Thursday, which is pretty neat.

Mad props to De La Soul for giving out all of their old music for free today!

Thunderbird that is. According to this post by Mitchell Baker, the Thunderbird product is not getting enough love, and I totally agree. Having thought about the topic a little, I think one of the better solutions is to break Thunderbird off and create the Thunderbird Foundation. Although I don't have a business background, or even a deep connection to the Thunderbird movement, here is my reasoning.

I got a haircut! And a shave!
