Pre-weekend Weekend Lunch Invite 43. Don't pull Leo's tail
This is the first week of the new job. After a long and arduous 10 months at Xerox, I finally got the heck out and went to contracting at Kodak. Well, it's actually contracting through a company in Rhode Island through Sun at Kodak but who's counting? I'm now working on the Java-ized version of the Kodak PictureMaker kiosks.
Speaking of pictures...mine lost at last week's contest at Camera Rochester. I didn't agree with much of what the judges like so I'll try next time...January, I think. Waa...I wanna go next month, but they're doing a year-end judging of past winners two weeks from now and an awards ceremony/holiday dinner in December.
Movies this week:
Karaoke at Drinks by Mary Dawn (535 S. Clinton) starts around 10:15 p.m. but it fills up quick. Last week was okay; everybody missed me singing Jimmy Buffet's Come Monday, the only Jimmy Buffet song Sugar Bear had. I really gotta stop going out so late now that my job is somewhat important again.
Buddhahood is at Red
(171 St. Paul.)
Starting at 7:00 is the opening of the Camera Rochester exhibit at Campos (Jefferson Road). I don't have any work there, but I'll go to see what it's like.
Kevin Meany with Mary Anne Nichols will be at the horribly
designed Comix Cafe
(3450 Winton Place, 424-LAFF)
at 8:00 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. Likewise with Saturday. Tickets
are $15, assuming they're the same as for the Bobcat Golthwait
show a couple weeks ago. Truthfully, I'm not $15 interested.
O'Bagelo's. Noon. 165 State Street. Who? Why? How?
Owing to the quality of the venue and the reasonably good
name of the band, The Assumptions will be playing at
Monty's Krown Lounge
(875 Monroe Avenue).
It used to be the Rose & Crown but it changed names
without changing location. I've never heard the band, so don't
Nothing much but the Sunday Fox animation...
King of the Hill - Aisle 8A: When Connie stays over, Hank is mortified that he must help her with a personal problem.
Simpsons - E-I-E-I D'oh!: Homer and Bart grow a highly addictive cross between tobacco and a tomato after moving to an old farm.
Futurama - When Aliens Attack: Aliens threaten to destroy Earth
unless they can see the last episode of a lost TV series from the 20th
Enjoy the silence.
I've been going the last few weeks to Java's (16 Gibb Street) for open mic poetry read each Tuesday. Despite the low turnout of poets & readers, the crew tends to keep it all quite entertaining.
For the easily amused, the
Memorial Art Gallery
500 University Avenue
is [hosting/starting] a show entitled "Archaeology
in Sri Lanka: A Challenge for the New Millennium."
Once again, just South Park at Rohrbach's at 315 Gregory Street. Showtime at 10:00. Another new episode ... Starvin' Marvin in Space: Starvin' Martin returns with a spaceship and enlists Cartman and the others to help him feed his fellow Ethiopians.
John Montgomery's Creep of the Week
CNN Almanac: 1999-Nov-4
Internet Movie Database
On this day ... November 4
Diluting your word power:
To ostrasize is to get part of a restaurant order as carry-out. I'd like a Big Mac meal, Super-Sized, and a hamburger Happy Meal OstraSized.
