I quite enjoyed Monsoon Wedding, except for the part where the old man behind me snored through 10 minutes of it.

Oops. Distracted again.

I started redesigning a few weeks ago, but then I got busy with CSS wrangling at work. After spending an afternoon trying to figure out which browsers support each CSS2 table property, I’m just not in the mood to come home and do more Web development.

If you want an idea of what I’ve been up to lately, check out Jesse James Garrett’s visual vocabulary for information architecture and interaction design. For everyone else, why not enjoy an adorable, cursor-hungry bunny?
