I need to read Susan Cain's book about introverts. This TED talk describes me so well. For example, the best thing about having a Kindle is I no longer must pack 50lbs of books every time I travel.

I am obsessed with shipping container housing. A brand new shipping container (aka intermodal container) only costs about $5k, and used ones are much cheaper as the trade defect with China means there's a lot of shipping containers coming into this country. As it is more expensive to ship an empty container back to China than it is to make a new one there, the US ends up with a lot of empty containers. I love the idea of repurposing these containers for housing. They are designed to be stacked up to seven containers high and are made of corrugated weathering steel. I think they are a great solution for low-income or emergency housing.

It will all end in tears. (I've reinstalled Windows far too many times to count, so I should know.)

I usually don't share ads, but this one has two of my favourite things, Star Wars and dogs. Volkswagens, meh.

Haywire was one of the best action movies I've seen. The fight scenes were visceral, but not gratuitous. Soderberg didn't use a soundtrack or shaky camera shots during the fights; he pulled back to wide, steady shots and let Carano's skills shine. Her body is powerful, healthy, and sexy; she's not a skinny twig like most actresses in Hollywood. She's a strong, smart woman who will run you down and then wipe the floor with you. I've got a huge girl-crush on her now.

I stopped by there around 11pm and there were still about a 100 people or so drinking, playing music, and sledding down the hill. When I went by again after 1am there was a cop car parked at the top of the now-deserted hill.
