Corpse Bride

Argh. Corpse Bride is a movie worth watching on the big screen, but I don't really know anyone I can just drag to the movies with me.

I guess there's nothing wrong with going to watch it by myself. After all, I watched March of the Penguins. =)

I _could_ wait a few months and watch it at someplace like Bloor Cinema for less than half the price of a regular ticket...

... but Dominique's just watched it. Waah. Envy.

Get your life on

Check out getyourlifeon for fresh grad survival tips. From the website:

We are young. Maybe we're just out of college, maybe we've been working for a year or two. We're out there, looking for cool jobs, great places to go, what to buy, where to meet up, most importantly, what to do next. We are getting our lives on. And we're all in it together.

Awesome guide to surviving your first taste of the Real World. Good read even if you've been in the Real World for a while. Totally cool.

All the gory financial details

My mom wanted to know if she needed to make any emergency funding arrangements for me, so I sent her a 24-page report of all the financial transactions I recorded since I moved to Canada.

It's arranged by category and then by month, and it includes each and every single line item. I might be missing one or two hotdogs here ard there, but in general, it's a good picture of how I've been spending money.

Gnucash makes it _fun_ to record my expenses, and creating reports is a breeze. Totally awesome stuff.
