Why is there a new interface for updating my eljay? I liked it the way it was before. hmmm.

Subway, continues to swallow my life whole. But, I actually got out on time, hurrah! I was doing the night shift, and typically, I get out late, because I'm all "have to do everything perfectly." But the addition of the shifts starting at 10 in the morning, has opened my eyes to the fact that the morning staff member can handle the morning just fine if a few things aren't done (but most is). So yeah, is going good, and I made cookies tonight, because everyone bought subway cookies. Man, those cookies are so freakin unhealthy. But so tasty.

I want a Wii!! I've been playing on javelinface's Wii, and it's really fun. I did some car racing today, and I actually did pretty well. I'm typically quite bad, and although I only won 1 race out of 3, that's still awesome for me! Instead of using a little joystick to steer the car, you tilt the Wii remote. I found it way more comfortable to use (head comfortable, it sits better with my brain). We also played a multi-player shoot-'em-up game, much in the same vein as 007 games. Except to move, you use the joystick on the nun-chunk, and you look around using the remote. Takes getting used to, but once I was used to it, I enjoyed it much better. I guess I just like pointing at stuff, and being more hands on, than using a joystick. Joysticks bugs me, I don't get the hang of them easily.

I can't believe it's 10 days till Christmas.

I saw Eragon yesterday. It isn't that great. It looked really good in the previews, but the whole movie was rushed, and badly acted, and had bad dialogue, and no characterisation. But the special effects were pretty nifty, and if they'd taken more time on developing the whole movie, it would have been pretty awesome. As it was, it fell short of the glory of awesomeness. But it was still fun. I give it 2 stars out of 5. It came just so close to being great, and it's just disappointing because I can see how it isn't great, and... yeah.

I am whack, and should go to sleep.

I read a rant by this woman who sat near to a family in a restraunt and had to go through the horror of sitting within earshot of a screaming baby. Now, I'll admit, screaming babies are pretty horrible, but, gah! Get over it, the world isn't going to bow to your wishes. If you want peace and quiet, eat in, not out. Going out, you're bound to get noise. I don't like people who don't like children. I like children. They can get very bratty, but if you handle them right, they can be very well behaved. I think my pet-peeve when it comes to children, if the parents. If they're spoiled, then the parents are to blame. Parents have a lot to answer for.

I remember a number of years ago, a small boy hit a girl, and his Dad gave him a smack on the bottom. The mother of the daughter was shocked and contacted the police. However, the little boy spoke in defense of his Father, saying that he knew he deserved the smack. Discipline shouldn't stop at a smack, or being sent to the corner, the child needs to know why they're being punished. So you need communication and discipline. I intend to smack my children, if I ever have them. I was smacked when I was little. I think I'm better for it. Mum only had to start counting to 3 and I'd stop being naughty by the time she reached 2. Very effective.
