Errands with William

I finished my report by lunch time. After William got home from school, I took him to pick up the replacement glass for the bathroom light fixture he bumped and broke two weeks ago. He felt really bad about it and wanted to give me all his money. I let him pay for it but then took him to Toys R Us and we stocked up on the new mini-figs (series 6). He opened the genie and the two gun western bandit. We also stopped at the refinery and watched the flames for a while.

Forgotten work

I remembered yesterday that I still have to complete my year end information report, regardless of whether I'm on sabbatical or not. It is due tomorrow, creating a bit of a rush to my day. Doing almost anything extra in my day makes it difficult to do my readings and create a film.
Margaret shot this snowman around the corner. It's been warming up again and the snowmen that are here are withering.

William began a weekly workshop on game design with Allan Dotson today. His friend Griffin is also in it. I had a Filmpool meeting. Didn't get much else done, there was a lot of noise all day and I didn't get much reading done and my film didn't go on line until after midnight. One delay was that I misplaced my whale footage from the Maritines. I was going to replace it with lobster footage so modified the script and title, but then found the whale footage and changed it all back.

The Matrix


I put on "The Matrix" for William and I to watch this evening. "What's the Matrix?" he asks. Not only had he not seen it before, he'd not heard of it nor did he know any of the secrets. He says it was awesome.
