Missed it!

Damn! I just read that there was a scene in Iron Man after the credits! Ever since "X-Men: The Last Stand", I've stayed at movies through the credits just in case I miss something. Darren drove, though, so just as the credits were playing, he wanted to leave. If I had known there was another scene, I would have told him to stay!

Apparently, the scene, featuring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, was a teaser for the new Avengers movies coming out in a few years.

I saw "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" at the discount theater a few weekends ago. It was good, but it was lacking the mystery of the first movie.

Iron Man was totally awesome. I saw that Saturday with one of the roomies and his girlfriend.

The semester's over and it's time for me to pack and get moved. I'm not looking forward to it.

Signing for Credit Card Purchases

I get so annoyed when I have to sign for a credit card purchase for a small amount. My local grocery store doesn't make me sign unless my total is over $25. I don't have to sign at the gas station when I pay at the pump. I have never signed a receipt at McDonald's.

Why, yesterday, did Mrs. Fields make me sign my $3 lemonade receipt? There wasn't even a line for the signature!

And god help you if you hand me a pen out a drive-through window...

Free Country Music Download

Denny's is currently running a promotion where you get a free country song download with certain meals. Lucky me, I chose to have the country-fried steak this morning, which entitled me to a free song.

I got home just now, eager (not really; I hate country music) to download a song, but the music is protected by Microsoft Windows Media DRM...

I don't mind DRM, but Microsoft hasn't made their DRM compatible with OS X, so I'm SOL.

If you're interested, here's my code (if it doesn't work, somebody already used it):

On Television

I watched "Top Chef" last night and I was disappointed that Casey didn't win. Her dishes just didn't come together, so I can understand, though. Still, I'm sad. Did she get anything for winning the poll? Seriously, I hope my $1.29 went for something ($0.15 to send the SMS, $0.15 for receiving the confirmation, and $0.99 fee for the message). If not, what the hell was the point? That's a lot of money to charge for nothing!

I love watching CSI, but this semester, I have a class while it airs. I recorded last week's episode with my EyeTV but totally spaced on this week's episode. I'm considering buying both episodes from iTunes. The quality is better, there're no commercials, and I don't have to convert it before I can watch it in Front Row.
