Site Going Down Tomorrow Until DSL Is Up

Since I am moving tomorrow and DSL won’t be started until the 5th, the site will be temporarily down. I will have diva.homelinux.org point to www.marcogazzetta.com and remove the redirect there, but the content will not be updated.

If you get a chance before the site is down, check out the pictures of the new house!

Heavenly Opens Tomorrow, Wednesday 11/30!!!

Well, if the headline doesn’t say it all… They even had an interview on NPR with the head of South Lake Tahoe CC, and he was extatic!

Sunday? Anyone? I’ll be up, and it looks like some of my colleagues are going, too.

Moving Into New House

{moszoomimglink:44. Hazelwood}So I got lucky! I was struggling to find anything livable during the whole month, and got deals denied at the last second because the owner didn’t want cats, after all… In the end, a strange mix of serendipity (I had read about this open house because I had typed in the wrong search), circumstances (the owner wasn’t able to rent to anyone else) and perseverance (I stuck with this house throughout my search) got me in at the last second, after all other options were exhausted.

The house is charming, and the commute is going to be a little easier. Most importantly, though, I finally will have all the space that comes with a house. Actually, this one is really generous in space: the basement is the same size as the house itself (the living space) and will give me many a chance to store stuff. Moving out will be another nightmare!

Unfortunately, having to move of course means I couldn’t visit Hawai’i this month. Well, planning on doing so soon…

House of Wax (2005)

Well, what did I expect? A bunch of teenage rowdies crowds to the opening game of the season, gets stranded in a back country hole and all hell breaks loose. Predictable to the point that my main activity during the movie was hitting fast forward on the remote, and the whole experience shrank down to possibly 30 minutes.

Someone had told me this was the best horror thriller they had seen in years, so I thought it can’t hurt if I watch it. Wrong! I should have read my IMDB before renting it: turns out the whole cast was chosen around the firmament star Paris Hilton. If that wouldn’t have been the clue, then seeing Chad Michael Murray play the bad hero would.
