Papers, wheee! [12 Feb 2007|11:11pm]
I have way too much fun with my paper outlines. My handwritten version contains oh-so-academic phrases such as "AWESOMELY KINGLY!", "oops, my bad. Here, have some bling" and "loot for everyone (but mostly me)"

I am master of the fuse! [15 Jun 2006|07:40pm]
Haha, I changed the fuse on the AC today. It blows all the time, so I suppose it's a good thing to be able to do. I'm working aaaalll the time now, and I think one of these days I'm just going to fall over asleep taking out an order. And then everyone would laugh, because that's what we do at work when somebody screws up like that. It sounds kind of mean, but it isn't meant mean-spiritedly. It's a good thing I like the people at work, because the actual job is kind of mind-numbingly boring.

Okay, AXE? Leaving g-strings all over campus to advertise your male deoderant is both offensive and degrading. I hope it backfires spectacularly, you assholes.

OMG this is the funniest thing I've ever* seen.

Use it to find any website, then when it shows the results, hit the little "translate page" link. So great.

Warning: Rambly account of dorm flood behind cut.

Okay, so I was getting ready to go to my biochem lecture today when what should be going on outside our door? FLOODINGCollapse )

Other than that, it's been a decent day.

Why the hell are we keeping the thermostat at 80 degrees? We aren't 90 years old, we don't get cold that easily! We use fans and things when it is 80 outside, so why would we subject ourselves to that voluntarily?

I really hate the glass cutting board we have. A cutting board does no good when it causes food you are cutting to slide around and make you cut yourself. Ow.

[ mood | crappy ]

Well, I've been having a crappy day. I had two exams before 11 a.m., one in Calculus and one in Chemistry. And then I had the Chem lab from hell.

Someone, though, is going to have just as bad a day as I've had. There's a car outside my window whose hazard lights have been flashing since noon, four hours and forty five minutes ago. I did tell the front desk, just in case they can get ahold of the owner. I mean, yeah, I had a crappy day, but it doesn't mean I want anyone stranded here.

Okay, so, theoretically, if you wanted to piss me off, you could make a huge mess in the living room and kitchen, and use all of my little tupperware-ish containers, and then throw them away because you're too lazy to wash them. Yeah. That just might do it.

If you open the dishwasher while it is on delay start, it will never run.

argh. Roommates. Suitemates. Whatever.

Also, exams are crap. But everyone already knew that.

Usually I avoid talking about politics, but there are some times when you just want to get some things off your chest.

I'm an independent. I am also from Kansas. In this election, I have been going back and forth between voting for Bush or Kerry. I dislike several of the issues Bush is very steadfastly behind. I question the necessity of the war in Iraq. I disagree with his stance on gay marriage (which is a whole rant in and of itself. hm...I'm not sure rant is the word I'm looking for there.) On the other hand, up until very recently, the entirety of Kerry's campaign has seemed to be "I'm not Bush! Vote for me!" to which I can only respond, "neither am I, and yet, I am not qualified to be President." Still, I had no major issues with him, and so I strongly considered voting for him.

However. As Kerry and Edwards have recently demonstrated, they don't think I count for anything in this election. I wasn't in Lawrence, I wasn't waiting for Kerry's train to pass through, but I'm still offended by the implication that Kansas voters don't count to the Democratic party. I realize that Kansas has a history of voting Republican, but that is never going to change unless Democrats make some attempt to win over Kansas voters. Ignoring us just makes us resent you. Giving us shallow excuses about not being able to stop in every rural town from the minuscule mining town of Wilcox, AZ is utterly offensive. Furthermore, while Kansas did vote for Bush in the last election, that doesn't make all Kansans Republicans, or dedicated to voting solely along party lines. For one thing, we have a Democrat in office as Governor. This tells me that while it may not be a good chance, there is, well, there was a slim chance that Kerry could have garnered Kansan support.

Simply put, unless you try, nothing is going to change.

I have not stopped considering Kerry, but this does make it less likely I will vote for him.

My brother and sister's birthdays went well. They seemed to like the presents I got them, anyway. I should be getting ready to go to work now, but I'm procrastinating as usual, so I will instead make a to do list:

Random Restaurant Review! [11 Jul 2004|03:27pm]
[ mood | bouncy ]

So the family and I went to Texas Roadhouse the other night for dinner. We had called ahead, so we were seated fairly quickly, no problems there. The food and service were both excellent. The restaurant itself seemed to have to many things going on, decoration-wise. You don't need 10 billion cacti to make me understand that it's southwestern. Yeah. Anyway, the bread they make? Fabulous. They bake it, and then it can only sit up to 5 minutes before it's thrown away, so it is always warm and soft.

So, food is good, service is good, decoration overdone. The most noticeable bad point of the restaurant is the noise. It is insanely loud. The music is loud, the servers have to shout, so they're loud, and the poor patrons trying to talk over dinner are struggling to hear.

There were, apparently, many people having birthdays there that evening. The servers trailed after one another to the unfortunate birthday person's table pushing a saddle. On this the birthday person is sat and wished a happy birthday along with lots of shouting of "yeehaw".

Anyway, it was loud, overdecorated, and the food was pretty much worth it. :D

See that? That is your lane. Your very own. It is for driving in. See these? These are the other lanes. Those lines? Not for straddling. Especially not those separating you from oncoming traffic.

Also, those handy yellow outlined left-turn lanes? If you are turning left, use them. People will thank you for it. Or at least not rant at you for failing to do so.

Sincerely,
You friendly neighborhood horrified driver.

My Sister is Hilarious [17 Jun 2004|07:09pm]
Conversation between Mom and Debbie:

Debbie: I want a tiger.
Mom: I'm pretty sure you'd have to move-
Debbie: To Canada. They don't have laws there.

So yes. Congratulations, all you Canadians. Apparently you have no laws.

Now, in defense of my sister, she did realize what she'd said and laughed along with the rest of us, but still.

Mary Sue Meme [16 Jun 2004|08:35pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Use fanfiction.net's new "Search by summary" option, put in your name and see if you've ever been a Mary Sue. Then post the best summary here.

Searching for Elizabeth in HP:

We Are The Night: After six years at a Chinese wizarding school, Elizabeth Lee can finally transfer to Hogwarts and carry on her family's proud tradition. Her new path, however, seems to lead straight into a dark world which only her Potions Master can understand...*done*


Now, this isn't necessarily the best of the lot, but it looks like a pretty blatant Mary Sue, so.

Later, perhaps, I shall post some silly quizzes.

Well. We had some lovely weather last night. There are tree branches down all over the place in the front yard. Annoying, but hardly comparable to the whole tree that was in the middle of the road a few streets over last night. We, at least, didn't lose power like other areas of the city.

In other news, my grandmother is going to visit in July! Yay!

the weather. no, really. [29 May 2004|07:05pm]
[ mood | contemplative ]

So. It looks as though we will be having still more tornado warnings this evening. Hooray. I went outside to watch the clouds building, which was interesting, as some of them were directly over our house, moving quickly north. Another group of clouds were moving south, although it didn't appear to be moving as fast. I stayed outside until the wind started to pelt me with all sorts of old, dead leaves and other miscellaneous debris.

Anyway, if it starts thundering and whatnot I'm going to have to unplug my computer, since the wiring in this 90-some-odd year old house is less that perfect. By 'less than perfect' I mean 'not grounded'.
