I know that many of you are busy and don’t have time for things like watching movies. That’s where this site comes in handy: Movie-A-Minute. Movies you’ve been wanting to see but haven’t had time for are boiled down to their very essence. You can now catch up on all the classics, from Gone With The Wind to The Empire Strikes Back.

I’m telling you, round up some friends and play yourself some iSketch. It’s Internet-enabled Pictionary, basically. Funny thing is, I never liked Pictionary. Trying to draw things like “spirit” and “iceman” and “nicotine” in a time limit is like the artist’s version of improv, and I think that’s why it appeals to me. I’m no artist, but I like the challenge of trying to draw recognizable (and guessable!) shapes using my mouse. Oh, and I like the winning part of it, too. I only one 1 of the 2 games I played last night, but that’s still fun.

We’ve finally got snow that’s sticking around, and we’re set to get even more of it today. I’m not a big fan of driving in snow, but I do like to look at it. I love being outside during a heavy snowfall – have you ever noticed how a heavy snowfall acts like a muffler? It’s gets so quiet during a snowstorm. I think there are two reasons why. 1) People aren’t out as much. 2) (Scientists, back me up here) I think that having all the snow in the air actually does absorb a lot of sound. I have no proof texts for that, it’s just something I’ve come to believe all on my own. Disagree with me if you will, but go stand outside during the next snowfall and give a listen for yourself.

Have yourself a great day, won’t you?
