Hymn of the Big Wheel

Today was programming crazy search interface day, and I spent a lot of it listening to Massive Attack's Hymn of the Big Wheel. It's a good song for concentrating and the zen state you kind of need to keep track of a hundred little API things in your head.

This morning also had a "you know you're a chick programmer when..." moment. My officemate was already working when I showed up, and noticed my red nail polish right away, so we started discussing favorite polish colors and whatever. Then she noticed a big group of guys with visitor tags walking past the open door, looking in at us, and said "Oh god, and we're standing here talking here talking about manicures." I mimed shouting "We're programmers!" into the hallway. Well, really, they could have heard a discussion of java or something had they walked by some other morning. (My nails, by the way, are a really nice sparkly red.)

Shaolin Soccer

Siu lam juk kau (2001)

I rented Shaolin Soccer this afternoon & watched the subtitled Chinese version. This was easily the funniest movie I've seen in ages.
