This is gonna be hard!

Things are so busy for me right now, so even if I have to post something small, I have to make sure I post something.

So I have three things to mention for today. First, I just installed Leopard on my Mac. Operating systems are never a huge deal to me, and this one is no different. But there are some neat features that I'm sure to become dependent upon. "Spaces" being number one. And "Stacks" in the new finder is pretty sweet as well. What I really need, though, is a new desktop wallpaper. Anyone have any good resources for that?

Number two. Here's a photo I took out of my work window yesterday.



My old office had a view of the hubbub of center city. Now I have a calm view of the northeast, but it's still pretty cool. I can see much further without all the skyscrapers in the way. I liked how graphic the parking garage and buildings looked when I punched up the contrast and saturation. I wish that's what it looked like outside, instead of being so...brown.

And finally, it's date night! Rob quit his third job, so now he's down to two. Yay! That means we can still go for weekly sushi, but it won't feel like he's never home. So tonight we're going to see Lars and the Real Girl. Should be fun!

I hope you all are doing well this fine Wednesday!

Yay! You made it :) You have such a fun view! I don't mind my view too much either. Lots of squirrels and chipmunks...and campus cats too! This daily blogging thing will be a challenge. Hope you & rob have a fun date!

I tried Leopard out at the Apple store recently, but haven't gotten it yet. I'm still running Panther on my machine. Re: desktops, I use my photo albums from iPhoto and have it rotate to a new picture every day.

Me and my honey have a movie date this weekend. He wants to see Across the Universe, and I'm all about it too. :)
