Agent 47 is the one of the latest to make the jump from video games to movie screen. The nameless killer is an assassin for hire in a group known as The Organization–known as The Agency in the video game.
When a hit on a Russian political member turns bad, Agent 47 finds himself being chased by Interpol, the Russian FSB, and even other hitmen from The Organization.
I’ve decided that I need to transfer all my information and tasks to a PDA. Why? I have a lot of reoccuring tasks now. Reports due every FRI. Reports due at the end of each month. Reports due at the beginning of the month. Reports due every other MON. Preparing all these reports is time consuming because upper management prefer to discuss these reports on PAPER!!!! Thus I need to transcribe the data on a printable format. On top of that, I have other projects and tasks that I need to work on.
Perhaps I don’t need a PDA. Paper planner will suffice but tasks that I can’t finish, I would need to rewrite and push out another week. Maybe my PDA is just a fancy electronic Post-It note?
In my medication-induced haze Thursday night, I was turning the dial on the clock radio trying to get the Golden State Warriors game. As the last bit of my strength ran out, the dial ended up on CBS Radio. They were doing short pieces about random local news. There was one story that really caught my ear. Supposedly, Gavin Newsom, the mayor of San Francisco, hired seven new senior staff for the Mayor’s Office with funds for MUNI. Huh? You can do that?
Being sick bites.
I thought the sore throat and stuffy nose from Wednesday would be gone after a good night’s sleep, I was wrong. I took this medication called Sucrets which worked wonders. My sore throat was gone in an instant and my nose wasn’t as clogged. Unfortunately, Sucrets had a side effect they don’t list on the box or their website.
Sucrets numbs your mouth. Not the good “Haha, I talk funny now” dentist numb, rather it numbs the roof of your mouth and parts of your tongue numb. But, it does leave the bitter taste buds intact.
So, I popped this pill and it melts away right before lunch. I picked up a Vietnamese sandwich at this place on 2nd called Muffins, Muffins. My first bite had absolutely no taste. But, as I pushed it further down my throat, I could taste the bitterness of the greens. The meat had this gravelly texture as well. I could feel the fat granules from the meat, but it had no taste. If there was one time in my life where I would have gladly been a vegan, it was right then at that moment.
So what have we learned from this experience? Sucrets – the secret weapon used by vegans to convert carnivores to their cause!
Life is fraught with peril, and we get another example of it today. On the way to work, I notice a helicopter circling the area. Hrm… that’s new. As I get closer to work, one of the bigger streets is sealed off by police. Several smaller streets in the area are also closed. Hrm… something’s a foot. As I pass the nearby Walgreens, I see several police cars in the Walgreens parking. I turn to look at the other side, and crap, is that a SWAT car???
I start realizing something big is up, and it sure isn’t a traffic accident. The cause of the police action is a stand-off between the police department and a robbery suspect. Read more about the stand-off at the Oakland Tribune. But the underlying cause of it is Oakland. Oakland Oakland Oakland. Oak-Town is grummy and shadowy. With the exception of the Golden State Warriors, Oakland offers nothing. I’m just glad I leave this slum before the night settles.
I can not handle cold weather.
Born and raised in San Francisco, I prefer the outside temperature to be around the high 60s to low 70s with mild humidity and slight wind. Vibrant blue skies and fluffy white clouds would round out the perfect day.
Woot.. After a month of attempts on Kael’thras Sunstrider, Dark Democracy pwns him on 1/22/08 8:50pm pst. woohoo. First on the Horde side on the Durotan Server.
In the raiding world of the Burning Crusades expansion, the 25-man content goes from Gruul’s Lair, Magtherions Lair, Serpent Shrine Cavern, Tempest Keep, Mount Hyjal, and Black Temple.
The reason for my political birth is finally here. Propositions 94 through 97 involve four indian gaming casinos and their request to increase the number of slot machines by thousands. In return, these four casinos will pay a larger annual payment to the State’s General Fund.
On recommendation from wutaku, I’ve installed the WP-Youtube 2.0 plugin created by Jens Törnell.
The plugin works beautifully. In the YouTube Profile manager, you can assign color to the video player and save it under a profile to be used by any poster. The actual code to post up a video is pretty intuitive–[profile]YouTube ID[profile]. The YouTube ID is the code seen at the end of the URL from the YouTube links. Once published, that piece of code magically changes to the YouTube video!
What’s awesome is the auto-start option that can be set for a profile where the video plays once the page loads. If I were cruel and evil, I could set up one such profile and Rick Roll visitors on the jump!
Length of this series is 60 episodes long. I’d give this series a rating of 9 out of 10. Theres a lot of good acting and drama inside this series. There is enough will power and drive in the whole family that allows them to rise up again after falling all the way down.
