Yeah, back again

well, I told myself i'd get back into this after thesis.. and considering that my thesis is 'done'. The quotes implying I need to make a few minor changes, I felt I was given the green light to do this again.
Now all I need is something exciting and/or funny to tlak about :p

Getting Old?

I had to pull an all-nighter last week, preceded by a 3 hour night's sleep. the next day, I kept getting dizzy spells. I'm kinda worried, because it's been nearly a week, and although they've decreased, they haven't gone away entirely.

Ugh, man, I can't afford to get sick now. I'm meeting with one of my counselors since I'm having trouble with one of my classes... my thesis previsualization class. I'd just been indecisive with what I want to do, that I've fallen behind.

Last minute panic is my strongest motivation, which is why I tend to do better on all nighters, the palps usually overcome any tiredness I get LOL

Not tonight though.. I'm going to bed now, and plan to work in the am before work.

Katrina's Anti-USA Douchebags

Let's take care of ourselves, and screw the rest of the world.

While a city is underwater, listen to the douchebags of the world and their $0.02:

"A modern metropolis sinking in water and into anarchy -- it is a really cruel spectacle for a champion of security like Bush," France's left-leaning Liberation newspaper said. Obviously forgetting that New Orleans is CREOLE!!

"(Al Qaeda leader Osama) bin Laden, nice and dry in his hideaway, must be killing himself laughing."

A female employee at a multinational firm in South Korea said it may have been no accident the U.S. was hit.

"Maybe it was punishment for what it did to Iraq, which has a man-made disaster, not a natural disaster," said the woman, who did not want to be named as she has an American manager. (I hope s/he finds out, and fires you on account of being an ├╝berdouche.)

"A lot of the people I work with think this way. We spoke about it just the other day," she said.



So kids, after pouring billions into the aid of other countries, we're getting donations in the thousands from wealthy countries like Japan. (As a reference, the Yankees, a baseball team for crying out loud, have given a million). Your charity is a backslap.

So let's take care of ourselves America, and screw the rest of the world.

How?

Neutrality. Our policy is to neither aid nor threaten any country. Think of what our economy would be like if we didn't waste our tax money funding other countries. Stop being the world's police officer.

Our only policy.. you attack us, we nuke your country off the map. Don't, and we'll get along splendidly. Osama bin Laden and Mohammed Atta would have had to reconsider if they knew that 9/11 would have had a retaliatory strike that would have turned their homelands into glass bowls. Not that there would be any reason, we would have not been involved assisting Israel anyway (and if you believe that the terrorists were after us simply because they hate our freedom, I just can't help you). We'll move our seat in the UN to the back, pat our fat wallets, and muse about the profit margins of allowing Microsoft and Wal-Mart to merge and buy a 51% share of France...

And rename it Doucheland. (heh heh, sorry Germany!) ;)

Already the mad scientist in me is thinking up new uses for it ;D

Will provide pics of the finished doohickey!

In the meantime!

Robot Chicken

Watch this show. Download it, TiVo it, whatever.
Especially if you were born between 1960 and 1980.

Darth Vader: Turn to the dark side and join me.
Luke: I'll never join you! YOU KILLED MY FATHER!
Darth Vader: No, Luke.... I AM YOUR FATHER.
Luke: THATS NOT TRUE! THATS IMPOSSIBLE!!!!
Darth Vader: And Princess Leia is your sister.
Luke: THATS NOT TRUE! THATS....... improbable.
Darth Vader: And the Empire will be defeated by EWOKS!
Luke: THATS......... very unlikely.
Darth Vader: And as a child, I built C3-P0!
Luke: Huh?

Later.....
Darth Vader: And the Force..... well thats just microscopic bacteria in your bloodstream called "midi-chlorians".
Luke: Look... if you dont want to take this seriously, I'm out.

GC2: Die Harder

After work, I went and saw Erin Bennett (aka Gigglechick) at the NY Improv. I'd seen her perform, and as always, she was funny. Her performance seemed a bit rushed, and she didn't seem to be at ease up there. I sat with her friends Erin and Kate (I think that was her name).

Everything was fine until I left. It was about 11:30 or so. I walked slightly ahead of Erin and her friends. Probably not the smartest thing to do, I kinda had the butterflies going, but I was on reasonably familiar turf, and I figured as soon as I hit B'way, there would be more light and few crowds (being close to midnight). I thought wrong, and just seemed to plow through one hapless tourist after another between 53rd and 42nd, really not the impression I was trying to give.

I wound up actually early for the last express bus, by almost a half hour. I sat on the curb and just mused on the events of the evening. Cabs went by, my ass grew numb, and I thought to myself, "What the hell am I doing out here"? My periodic sojourns often end this way. I often kind of relish the moments of pure independence. It's pretty sweet and at the same time I feel again ill at ease, knowing that it somes with the potential of awkwardness, solitude, and possibly disaster, social or otherwise.

Its just I don't have the inclinations of my friends. They're more than content to hang out at home, watch a movie, and BS. They marry, they have kids, they have mortgages. I haven't gotten them to hang out in the city since I moshed with the pelander punks two years ago... on my birthday.

I think I need another vacation :P I should bring em along kicking and screaming. Or find some new fools to hang out with.

Man, its late and I should be sleeping instead of doing the ol' fish outta the water whinge. Just need some real Zzzs...

Oh My God..

My friend's little sister Meg just tried to commit suicide.
I've known her since she was a little kid. She grew up to be kind of a hottie lol. My friend's house was kind of a toxic environment.. I'd always kidded with my friend that I'm amazed that he turned out kind of normal. But Meg had a lot of guilt issues over her mother's death, and her father just had a heart attack last week, and well, I really don't know what she was thinking.
But she has a husband and a one year old baby.. thankfully she pulled through, but.. its just scary shit, that's all.

Stop this shit, Meg.. we love ya.

When Ren Faire Freaks Attack

Remember that guy from college who was really into the Society for Creative Anachonism? Sure you do. Made all sorts of Boffer swords, and applied D&D stats to them for LARPs. Majored in Magic the Gathering. You know him.

I like how this guy claims he accrued 1000 years of power.

Course, he was no match for the 1000 watt tazer LOL

"What's in yerrrr wallet?!!"

All Your Magical Light Are Belong To Us

magical light instructionsMy parents bought some kind of whily happy face toy, that, when turned on, spins around, and flashes LEDs in weird patterns.

They also bought a box filled with wonderfully terrible English. I had to share it with you kids.

My favorites are, screw it, the whole thing is funny :D
