You will end up like always, back where you were before
School starts in 2 days. I guess that's all right. I must remember to get all of my homework done before the weekend; I have a lot of stuff I want to do on Saturday. For one thing, that's the day of the very important UFU garage sale (I might just help set up from 7-9 or something). I guess we didn't make much money from the dance--we might not have even broke even--so we need to make up for it.
There's not really much going on today, but I'm sure once school starts I'll have a lot to post about (during my non-existant free time...).

Two Uni dances in less than a week? I vote that everyone go to the (probably subbie-free) UFU dance and skip the Howdy Hop.
So yesterday I ordered a MacBook (white, 1.83GHz, 1 GB RAM, 60 GB harddrive) and one of those U2 video iPods! It's going to be so excellent!
Well. This week should be interesting...

Somehow I still find the time to blog sometimes
So here's an amusing quote that I was going to post two days ago, but then my Internet died:
Bob Dylan’s MySpace page raises many questions. Does Bob know it exists? Does Bob even use the Internet? Are Journey and Living Colour really his friends? Whatever the case, it’s a blessing to view such messages to him as “Hey man I dought [sic] you ever read this but what the hell thanks for the add” and “The events of September 11th do not add up….Something very fowl is afoot.”
--from Rolling Stone's Rock and Roll Daily blog, possibly the best blog ever.
So I've been working on a Linux (SUSE) machine for the past two days. I suppose I am adapting to it. It definitely has some advantages over other operating systems, but I think I still like OS X the best. :)
Another thing I've been doing is command line sftp and ssh. It's pretty cool!

More good stuff!
- Calc II/III
- Physics B/C
- Japanese III
Plus I'm doing an Independent Study to learn Java! I get to make up my own curriculum. It'll be so excellent.
Besides all that stuff, my job is also going really well today. I met with the grad student dude today and he's doing a large amount of the database work that I was worried about. He's also teaching me how I'm supposed to write the MySQL queries, and the rest of it is just dealing with HTML forms (something I already know how to do). All right, time to get back to working...

People are crazy and times are strange, I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range, I used to care, but things have changed
Meanwhile, I anxiously await an e-mail response from Ms. Kovacs about my schedule. Maybe I'll have to try to go find her again...

Menagerie. I found them while searching for Helter Skelter (they covered it). You can hear that and some other nice, live jams here. Unfortunately, I think they might be breaking up...
Explosions In The Sky. A good post rock band; a bit more mellow than Mogwai. If you look around you can find a few songs on their website, but it's easier just to go to their Myspace.
Now isn't that such a nice, relaxing break from the world of commercial pop?
The half hour nap turned into a NINE HOUR NAP. From which NONE OF MY FAMILY MEMBERS WOKE ME UP. So instead of doing all that stuff I had planned, I had dreams about popcorn and missed the BEST THIRD OF THE DAY.
And to make matters worse, the storm knocked out the phone lines or something. What is the deal. I guess they work now, but that doesn't help much.
Well, I guess I can still write in my journal and watch ATHF... no point in going back to sleep.
Well, tomorrow will be better.

Noam, you don't suck.
Anyway, everyone: I saw A Scanner Darkly today. It was a good movie. I wish it had been longer, though, but maybe I just feel that way because I've been reading the book. Books... take a lot longer. :P
I also bought a Physics SAT II book and checked out Megatokyo 3, a Postal Service album, and the second ATHF DVD from the library. Excellent.
I wish everything were all right...

oh man, "one" starts the same way
My food schedule appears to still be all messed up. I took a nap when I got home today and now I still don't feel like eating dinner...
