bamboo wednesday! part 9!

still growing, although it's starting to be at a rate that i'm not noticing the growth as much as i did. or maybe it's just because proportionally speaking, the growth doesn't appear to be as much but it's still growing at the same rate?

still just putting bottled water in it.

i've officially determined that i need a holiday, but must cope with the fact that i am out of vacation days at work since my arse-wipe boss only allows 2 weeks of vacation every year. it's one thing i miss about my old job. i had like 5 or 6 weeks of vacation with my last employer, and the option to work from home up to twice a week. if i even hint that i need to work at home for some reason at this place my boss gets constipated. in a world where gas prices are over $1.05 CDN per liter (roughly $4 a gallon for anyone american who may be reading) i find that his anti-work from home policy is really environmentally irresponsible.

this week, after deciding that i was both tired of working and tired of cleaning out the condo, i bought myself a video game. i know i shouldn't have because christmas is right around the corner, but i figured i picked one that nobody would be likely to think of getting for me. i grabbed a copy of Sonic Rush for the DS for the low low price of $15. i'd probably have to agree with the reviewers when they say "possibly the finest Sonic game yet." the game has that classic Sonic the Hedgehog feel to it, but stellar graphics and plenty of semi-hidden areas of the massive levels that you can't access when you're burning through them at top speed (which i will define as frantically fast for alliteration purposes). if you have a DS, you should grab a copy of it. on top of the regular Sonic fun, it also has multi-card and single card download multiplayer. i haven't tried out the multiplayer yet, but it's gotta be good.
