I thought I'd just blog some random crap because I'm bored. I'm at work and waiting for the CS department's annual christmas dinner to start. Unfortunately I wasn't on the mailing list for the staff when the invitation for the christmas dinner was sent out so I am not exactly sure when this whole thing starts. I thought it was supposed to start at 5 pm first but the place where the dinner is going to be was totally empty so I figured it's at 6 pm instead. If there's no action there by 6 I'm going home. I'm feeling a bit tired. It's kind of a pain to be busy from 8 to 4 every weekday. I really hope the dinner is good now. I like having a traditional christmas dinner at least once a year.

In other personal boring news I am looking forward to this weekend's fight between Floyd Mayweather and Ricky Hatton. Floyd acts so annoying in his TV appearances (even though it's probably partly intentional for hypeing his fights) but I really hope he gets knocked out. Ricky Hatton seems so cool. He gains a lot of weight between fights. So he sometimes calls himself Ricky Fatton. And he was being such a nice father to his little kid. And he seems a lot more down to earth. And he makes a cool wrah wrah noise when he hits. Oh and he could lift over 500 kgs on the benchpress at the gym. Cool! Go ricky, go ricky!

I have for quite a while now been fascinated by atheism and religion and I think it still baffles me at least once every day how people can ignore all the very heavy arguments against god's existence (without which most religions would be meaningless) and somehow make religion seem probable and sensible. One of the long list of things that has been bothering me is how people can imagine that a being (if we can call "it" that) could be so powerful as to create the whole universe, yet care what people name toys, what people eat, what people wear and so on.

Hmm, so here are some of the things I've been thinking about lately. And I just managed to waste 15 minutes. Almost time to go check if the christmas dinner starts soon. Merry christmas, ho ho ho!!!
