It's good!


So Teh Wife is still getting billed too much for cell phone usage. This is the sort of nonsense up with which we shall not put. We can move and keep the number for cheaper if we have to. There is no reason to pay as much as she is.

Hung out at the Starbucks for a few hours over the last couple days because it's been hot out and we don't have the AC in yet. Should've bugged the landlord about it a little while ago.

We also watched The Secret of Kells at a theatre. Air conditioning FTW. Fun story and all that jazz.

I finished I Capture the Castle, quite delightful. There was, it seems, a movie made recently of it that was decent, but I can't imagine how well they'd do the interior nature of the whole thing and wonder whether they capture all the social niceties our modern culture will have forgotten (like, evening attire).

I started Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.

My shoulder hurts mildly in the overhead position. It makes me slow in the snatch and weak in the jerk. I might have to decrease my openers and my goals for that meet. It might be annoying and I might have to be content with having done bigger lifts in the gym than on the platform. Speaking of which, we were thinking of visiting some people in $NORTHERLY_STATE someday, so I should check whether there are any weightlifting meets there anytime soon (google is not helpful because it takes powerlifting as a synonym, which it is not; they are different sports). Holy crap, the USAW page sucks in every conceivable way. Anyway, it seems there's nothing going on there.

I really like this article I stole off of aldaily: http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2010/07/12/100712fa_fact_grann?currentPage=all Note the stuff at the end. Not being an expert on fingerprints, I do find it highly problematic to identify paintings based on fingerprints found in them. Fortunately, the fingerprinting experts in the article agree. People probably have a false hope in fingerprint and DNA evidence, they are hardly as sure as they are commonly made out to be.
