Fifth Sentence

Caterina has started an interesting new meme:

1. Grab the nearest book.

2. Open the book to page 23.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions

So, here goes - nearest book was R. Allen Wyke, Jason D. Gilliam, and Charlton Ting, Pure Javascript, Sams Publishing, 1999:

Because JavaScript is a young scripting language with some wrinkles to be ironed out, it is a good idea to understand these instances for backwards compatibility reasons.

Friday Five 2004 02 20

Friday Five for this week:

    When was the last time you...
  1. ...went to the doctor? - About a month ago - my right index finger seems to be suffering from all the mousing involved in my work and hobby. *sigh*
  2. ...went to the dentist? - 1.5 years ago. The last time I had dental coverage. *sigh*
  3. ...filled your gas tank? - 1.5 weeks ago.

January 16, 2004

Friday Five 2004 01 16

Friday Five for today:

  1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails? - absolutely nothing. What a waste of bandwidth. No, one silly little line in one silly little e-mail isn't a big deal, but it adds up.

  2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven't graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be? - quote? heck, I didn't even bother to show up for photos.

  3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say? - "SQUIDDY", of course. Not that I'd get them, but if I did, that's what they'd say.

  4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say? - Nope. Never.

  5. What would you like your epitaph to be? - "Only 120 years?!? What a ripoff!".

November 29, 2003

Friday Five 2003 11 28

Friday Five for today:

  1. Do you like to shop? Why or why not? - No. Boring. Make a list of what you need, and where it will be. If the listed stores are out of it, you don't need it that badly, and can wait.
  2. What was the last thing you purchased? - Groceries. Can't avoid buying them.
  3. Do you prefer shopping online or at an actual store? Why? - Actual store. I want to see it first, and I like to support local merchants. If it isn't available locally, and can't be special-ordered, then I'll buy it online.
  4. Did you get an allowance as a child? How much was it? - Yes. Depends, I was a child for a long time. First allowance I remember was $1/week. Usually spent $0.50 to go to a movie, $0.25 on candy. Yes. I am old.
  5. What was the last thing you regret purchasing? - Life is too short for regrets. And since I only buy things I need (my wife may argue this point) I don't make mistakes. After all, I'm perfect, you know.1

1pssst! wanna buy some nice land in Florida?

November 07, 2003

Friday Five 2003 11 07

Friday Five for today:

  1. What food do you like that most people hate? - Beef tongue, liver, kidney, heart, etc... yum!!!!!
  2. What food do you hate that most people love? - shredded dried coconut. Can't stand the stuff. Yecch!
  3. What famous person, whom many people may find attractive, is most unappealing to you? - I don't get the fuss about J-Lo. She's not ugly, no... but she's not particularly high on my list of attractive people, either. Not to mention that she can't sing... so what's the fuss about? What?!? What am I missing?
  4. What famous person, whom many people may find unappealing, do you find attractive?Renée Zellweger at her Bridget Jone's Diary weight. I'm sick of the stupid Anorexic Look in Hollywood, and thought Renée looked great at the normal weight she had in that role.
  5. What popular trend baffles you? - body piercing/tattoos/scarification. I mean, really! If <enter deity of choice> had wanted us to have more than the number of holes we are born with, we'd have then already! And tattoos? Ack! They all (sorry, friends who have them) look like crap after a few years. All of them. No matter what you say. And if you change your mind? BWAH HA HA HAHAAHAHAHA!!!

Wednesday Whatever 2003 10 22

Wednesday Whatevers for today:

  1. What is your favorite day of the year and why? - that would have to be Halloween. I mean, when else can you be someone or something you're not, and see a whole bunch of other people being someone or something they're not, without serious conflict? Other than those weird acting folk, of course.

  2. Do you get caught up with the holiday spirit? Why/why not? - I do eventually, but it takes a long time. I get very annoyed with people who start obsessing about Christmas early. Not as angry as I do with companies that start advertising Christmas fare before Thanksgiving (in Canada? 2nd Monday in October). I boycotted one of my regular coffee and muffin places because he started playing Christmas Music in October. I told him I wouldn't be back as long as it was more than a month before Christmas, and he was blaring Christmas music across the mall. With all this early Christmas stuff, I get sick of the Season before December!

  3. Who is overrated? - Hmmmm... any of the current "Pop Divas". Britney? Ewww! Celine? STFU! Retire already, and raise your kid! Leave us alone! And many of their imitators, hoping that musically-challenged idiots the world over will buy their crappy music, too. And so you don't think I'm being unfair: I hate Boy Bands (and their solo efforts), too. Yecch!

October 10, 2003

Friday Five 2003 10 10

Friday Five for today:

  1. Do you watch sports? If so, which ones? - While not a big sports fan, I have been known to watch Hockey, Football (the Canadian variety), as much of the Olympics (Summer and Winter Games) and Commonwealth games as possible, soccer now and then, and random sports when the fancy hits me.
  2. What/who are your favorite sports teams and/or favorite athletes? - I don't have any. I have decided most professional athletes are overpaid <expletive deleted>, and tend just to cheer for the underdog in a given game - or whoever is playing against a particularly despised team.
  3. Are there any sports you hate? - Hate is too strong a word, but I have to admit, I find basketball annoying - and it bores me to tears. Cricket is a game that I just don't understand. Any game that takes three days to complete is just too bizarre, although I do think the bit about breaking for tea is nice...
  4. Have you ever been to a sports event? - I have been to NHL games and CFL games, and Pacific Coast League baseball games. I also went to a number of events during the World University Games (Universiade) in Edmonton in 1983. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get to the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. Maybe we'll get to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver...
  5. Do/did you play any sports (in school or other)? How long did you play? - Two years of Little League Baseball when I was 9 and 10. Darryl S., our manager's (coach's?) son, was the only player on our team with any talent. He pitched, hit homers, and generally kept us from the bottom of the standings. Oh, yeah. We were sponsored by a car dealership, so we were the Chrysler Dodgers. sigh That's about it. These days, I'm lucky to get out for a round of golf now and then. A jock, I am not.

October 03, 2003

Friday Five 2003 10 03

Friday Five for today:

  1. What vehicle do you drive? - We have a 1990 Toyota Corolla four door sedan, with 260,000km (about 161,000 miles).

  2. How long have you had it? - Purchased October 1, 1994 - so, nine years ago this week.

  3. What is the coolest feature on your vehicle? - Cool? It's a sedan. It has no "cool" features. It's good, reliable, inexpensive transportation that has cost almost nothing outside of standard maintenance since it was purchased.

  4. What is the most annoying thing about your vehicle? - It is too small for us. We need something bigger. We need a minivan.

  5. If money were no object, what vehicle would you be driving right now? - I'd be driving a 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing.
