Revenge of the SIMs

I had a weird dream last night about infiltrating an evil government compound, using a stolen SIM card and an electronic government ID device that looked like a Blackberry. Yesterday, a sales guy kept bugging me about helping him insert a SIM card into his BlackBerry. Coincidence?
I’m sitting in the Starbucks at King and Weber this morning. It’s running busy today, but no one is sitting down; everyone’s hurrying off to work. I drove R to her job because she wanted to walk home. I was going to go to the gym, but I didn’t have anything ready, so I decided to blog instead. Seems to me that I need to find places other than coffee shops to do this.
I’m drinking a grande latte, by the way. It’s the only time I put milk in my coffee anymore.
Looks like a nice day today — apparently it’s going to be nice on the weekend too. That’s good. I’m looking at having a BBQ and inviting a couple of friends over. I’m working Monday, so it’s not a long weekend for me (sigh).
Echo Weekly has this terrific review/commentary of George Lucas and the Star Wars franchise — how he moves from the traditional good/evil dichotomy in the first trilogy to blurring the lines and commenting on absolutism in the second trilogy — he’s widely seen as making an anti-Bush comment with Anakin Skywalker’s remark “If you’re not with me, you’re my enemy.” I remember hearing ideologically similar remarks from Bush I and Reagan when they were in power.
