Geo not Zero

Posted by Mark

Belgian Shepherd Puppies

Yesterday we decided to return our hamster his old name Zero after taking it away from him last week. Choosing a name for our dog is really a difficult thing, you don’t want something thats common, you don’t want something you can’t pronounce, you want something with a reason behind it and you want something that works on dogs. Yesterday we finally decided on the name “Geo”. It was the only name both me and Nat agreed upon. We arrived at the name after I suggested we call the dog after the legendary video game console the NeoGeo. Nat then suggest we call it just Geo since she thinks it sounds Italian like Aqua di Geo for example. So I like it because its from a Japanese video game console while she likes it because it sounds Italian, two completely different views on the name but both of us like it. Here are some other names that we couldn’t agree upon:

Dyski (from Grendizer)
Bauer (as in Jack Bauer from the show 24)
Jack (again as in Jack Bauer from 24)
Magnum (from the 80’s show Magnum PI)
Zero (Smashing Pumpkins song)
Magnus (as in Magnus Samuelsson, the world´s strongest man)

According to the breeder we should get the dog around February 4th. We will be paying for the dog in 3 payments, we paid the first payment yesterday, second will be end of the month and the third at the end of January just before they ship the dog. Hopefully we won’t change our mind on the dog again because we need to email the breeder today with the name. I am still hesitant a bit between Geo and Magnum as names but I will be asking around the office and get various peoples reaction on the two before I email the breeder. If anyone has any comments on Geo and Magnum that would be great. The picture above is the latest picture we got from the breeder.

Update: There is one more name which I suggest to Nat yesterday but she didn’t like but a lot of people at the office seem to like, Kouji which is also from Grendizer.

Kong is Suck

Posted by Mark

Just got back from the movies. King Kong was 3 fucking hours long!! Peter Jackson must wake up and realize not every movie can be made into a grand adventure like Lord of the Rings. I swear if it was up to him I am sure he would have turned King Kong into a trilogy. The first 1 and half hour of the movie was extremely slow, like super slow and then the ending of the movie kept on dragging on. By the 2 and a half hour mark I was ready kill King Kong myself. This movie could have easily been made into a regular sized 90 minute flick.

On the bright side the effects were the best so far. You will spend the whole movie thinking King Kong is real. His facial expressions, his fur, his movements, there is no way you could tell its a 3D rendering. Also for people who hate insects I warn you there is one scene in the movie that will gross you out, but again the insect graphics were super.

Overall though I would not recommend anyone watching this movie unless they enjoy long, boring and predictable 3 hour films.

Its easy to setup an anonymous account and its really fun, give it a shot. [Link]

say no to aramex

The other day I mentioned there was a competitor for Aramex, I just got the details now by email so here it is:
