Well I had to wake up at 6am and be on campus by 6:30 because my g/f had to be to work by 7am... which is fine by me I just take my Xbox or PS2 and hook it up on the TV in the rec room and play untill my friends get there or I have to goto class...

So anyways 3 1/2 hrs later its time for my Math class... I show up the Prof is like "We have a quiz today... and I got stuff to do so you got a half hour to take the quiz then class is over, or leave when your done."

It all boiled down to me getting on campus at 6:30am waiting 3/12 hrs for a 10 MINUTE class... and that was my only class today x.x

Oh yeah, then I had to hang around another 3 1/2 hrs till she got outta work to come pick me up... talk about a wasted day x.x

I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad, the dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had.

How interesting....

This morning I drank a cup of tea.

Later I opened a door. It may well still be open. Later on I am planning to sit down, possibly on a chair, though my plans are quite flexible.

My today so far: I woke up to the sound of my "Five Star" smart playlist in iTunes. I turned the volume down to two notches, so that it was just enough to keep me awake. I knew that I had to be in college by ten AM, and so I started to think about how long it would take me to walk the three hundred (or so) metres to the CVA lab. I slowly drifted off again...

I awoke once more, and began to panic. I needed to find out the time - had I missed the entire class? I had three clocks near me - my laptop (into which I'd need to type my password), my watch (somewhere on the floor - could take up to thirty seconds to find) and my mobile telephone, which was currently on charge. I chose the phone, unplugged it and looked at the face. It said 10:00.

'Phew,' I thought to myself. No one turned up on time; I still could get to class within a reasonable margin. I rolled out of bed, turned on the light, and pulled on some clothes, and found my watch.

I nipped upstairs, brushed my teeth and washed my face. Slightly refreshed, I went back downstairs, stuffed my laptop into its case, headed outside and locked the door behind me.

It took me less than a minute to get to the back door of college, and, having swiped my card, I began the long journey along the corridor.

I glanced at my watch - 10:10. Not bad. But as I approached the traditional animation lab, I realised that something was horribly wrong. No one was milling around outside, and I could hear no voices from within. Just a glance through the window confirmed my suspicions - the room was empty. I could think of only one other place class could be - the computer lab. I headed over there, uneasiness spreading through me. Where was everyone?

Anyway, to cut a long story slightly shorter - class was cancelled. So I came up to the library, logged onto one of the Macs there and opened my laptop up next to it. I followed a few links from Digg, and checked geekculture.com for any promising topics. I found this one, and clicked reply. Since then, I have been typing this message.

My plans for the future: well, on completing this post I'll scroll back, glance through it, and then choose to 'Add Reply'. Then I'll surf the web a little more, and maybe find and eat a Mars bar or something. I have no plans past that.

Just finishing up the week's homework. Today's class (just one - it's the interim January term) should be interesting: my usual captioning vendor had some trouble finding a stenographer, so the captioner who's filling in is new, and has never captioned a math class before. Hopefully her setup's dictionary includes the word "flux" ... nothing like sitting through an entire class hearing about obscene acts over a surface!

But it is a good day.

I did sit down. Then I stood up.

The door is still open.

I am considering scratching my bottom sometime in the next five minutes, but will keep my plans open so that I do not have to pass up any exciting opportunities that may arise.

I went to a movie last night.

Then I chatted to a girl I know via Adium.

Then I watched some porn.

Then I slept.

Then I woke up.

Then I ate not one, but TWO packages of poptarts. One was chocolate, the other was an apple pie-ish contraption. The apple pie won when it came to taste.

Then I got online to peruse the forums and I saw this thread.

Sigh.

Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out.

So, so tedious.

Woke up this morning....
Drove to work, didn't crash the car.
Kept the customers and the bosses reasonably happy, didn't get sacked.
Drove home, didn't crash the car.
House not burgled or burned down, no-one died or got sick while I was out.
No bad news on the answering machine.
Two people I don't know smiled at me, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
Pizza soon for supper.

I have a lot to be grateful for.

Are you not missing something in between porn and sleeping? [Razz]

You don't already have it yet?! Or you've just been perusing it at work? It is a damn fine book - I often read it before going to bed. [Razz]

I am going to click "Add Reply," put down the headphones, and walk away from my Mini to go make/eat dinner.

Ta!

I'd read it once already, but never had a copy to call my own until now.

I'm already on page 83 reading it again.

Now, after a night of drinkin the Capt., I gotta indicate if these expressions in java are invalid or not... even though all of them can be solved using double instead of int x.x

I woke up grumpily to my phone going off, which I didn't answer, cut my hair before my morning coffee (not for the faint of heart!), then surfed the internets for a couple of hours. I suck.

My plans for the evening are to take a shower, dance around to She Wants Revenge in my underpants for a bit, feed the snake, then call up the fuckbuddy and get him over here.

Go Saturdays! [Big Grin]

I woke up, ate, went to a weapons class, discovered that my beloved bokken is getting splintery on the bottom side, helped clean the dojo after class and went home. Then I did housework. Lots and lots of housework. And now I am making cookies. When they're done I'm going up to the lab for a bit and then who knows what after that.

Thrill a minute, let me tell ya. But tomorrow I go snowboarding. [Big Grin]
