Next to oddliness

Saturday I spent most of the day at Casa McCall doing voiceover recording for the upcoming HI 'Crapture of Bigfoot'. Seeing as this is a grotesquely bad movie, plans were made to do some drinking afterwards, and due to circumstances, we ended up at the Leaning Tower on University, where I discovered they had cider on tap. And much sousing was accomplished.
The sousing led to a group decision to go to Deja Vu. Yes, the strip club.

I'm looking at upgrading my computer system. I've been doing the computer gaming thing for about a year now, and I've just hit the ceiling with games-- I have a couple that I just can't play because my video card is behind the times. Really, it's about four years old and it's still completely serviceable for most things, particularly programming, but it's starting to fall behind on the curve.

I'm looking at a Radeon 9600 pro video card. Good bang for the buck, and it should keep my system happy for a while longer, until I can pony up some dough for a completely new system. The 9600 has some dandy features, including dual-monitor support. Personally I'd rather have a single widescreen monitor, but they are still way too far out there in price. They are coming along though-- another couple of years and I'll be able to have a single HD monitor serve as a movie screen and a computer monitor. I've seen this in action, and it's freaking amazing.

Also, my laser printer died and I've been looking for a replacement. I've been out of touch with printer technology for a while, so I was surprised to find under-$1000 color laser printers. Like significantly under $1000.

My sleep schedule is completely askew. Who knew?

Also, anybody have advice on taking niacin for circulation?
