I found another player for the role playing group. I don't even really know the guy, I think we met once on a Mensarian meeting. But since then he is kind of tuned in on my website and now read that I want to start the roleplaying group, so he wrote me an email. He does not know Firefly yet, but since he is a fan of Buffy and Angel, I am sure I can recruit him as fellow browncoat quite easily. We decided to do some serious DVD watching in the next days.

I finished watching Buffy Season 3 today. Wow! I just loved the Graduation Day episodes.

Also, Marnie, the Hitchcock movie, was on German TV today. It is a wonderful film, I had heard a lot about it, but never watched it before. Great camera work, there. And a very handsome young Sean Connery. Definitly worthwhile.

Also, I hunted and killed a ghost last night. Okay, I admit, that is the dramatic way of putting it, but hey, life is just so much more fun when you picture the world being full of magic creatures and supernatural powers

I had been hearing strange noises in my bedroom during the last few days. At first I thought it might have been a mouse or another small animal, but it sounded too loud and too random for that. Then I suspected that it was the computer cooling off or maybe the pneumatic spring in my new deskchair or something like that, but I had to cast all those theories overboard. The noises were not too scary, but they were a little disturbing, in fact so disturbing, that I prefered to just draw my blanket up over my ears and fall asleep on them instead of switching the light back on and look for the source. Last night my curiousity finally got the better of me, though, and I crawled out of my bed to confront my "ghost". It turned out the audio speakers on my PC sometimes shortwire, even if the PC is turned off completely, and give short bursts of static noise. Once you draw the power cord, the noise is gone. So, no ghost, no supernatural powers at work, not even a mouse, just a plain stupid technical defect.
