Well, I should be going gray in a day or two (or whatever colour it is in the new scheme). It was fun while it lasted, but I gotta start pinching the pennies and coming up with enough for rent, so... whatever

Nice speaking with you all, and may the future bring you only good things.

Take care. Sorry I didn't post nearly as much as I should have, but all the same the few back and forths were enjoyable.

Keep in touch with folks, I'll be gray next month so through them hopefully we'll still get invited to get-together's as they happen.

Take care.

I have a joke.

What's small, sits on your lawn, and is hated by conservatives everywhere?

Gnome Chomsky! biggrin


Speaking of leftist personalities, this fella is speaking on campus in a few weeks. Should turn out to be an interesting event.

Hah.. I wish someone like that would come to speak at my school... then again, I probably wouldn't hear about it. They keep us tech students all tucked away in one far corner of campus... haha. tongue

Hmm, fennel over dose subsided quickly, no ill after effects. All systems go.

It's cold!!! eeek

Today was my university's homecoming/Discovery Day, and I was out there hawking linguistics to prospective students. Little do they know what's in store for them.... surreal

My girlfriend is going through severe mood swings, and I don't blame her. The hospital program she's in is understaffed, and some of the doctors and nurses that they do have are...

Hmm, I'm not sure if that would count as an embedded system or not.. but it certainly is, well, embedded. surreal
Creepy. I suppose if it's only used to save kidnapped and dying people.. then it's a good thing... but really, it'd be too easy to make it a form of control... yikes.

So, what's new in the world of Chimpsky.. I just found out that I may have a semi-full-time job after I graduate, which should be next spring or summer. That's pretty good news, and especially since it may be a continuation of what I've been doing on a freelance basis -- teaching kids about bugs. biggrin After that? Who knows.. Off to get my...

Yay, I bought a new computer from eBay. It's a super duper speed demon. And what a bargain! Chimpsky has entered the 21st century, folks. robot

Now how'm I gonna pay off the credit card bills... StrangeAttractor says there's money to be made in playing with myself in public.. Where do you live, Strange? wink

My girlfriend is settling into the program in hospital...

Mmmm, gnocchi! love (Even if it was only pre-packaged. It was still damn good.)

I think I have a lump in my neck. This could be a problem.

My girlfriend moved in to the hospital today. She seems to be adjusting alright. Let me tell you, an eating disorder ward is not a sight for the uninitiated, unless you're used to the sight of skeletons...

Wise words my friend, the only thing for it is to get up and move on.
strangeattractor:

you could make a lot of money for playing with yourself in public.

My girlfriend is being admitted to hospital on Monday, after what seems to have been an interminable wait. There, if all goes well, she'll proceed to gain about 2-4 pounds a week until she reaches a healthy weight and BMI. Then the real work begins -- getting her mind healthy. That's a lifelong effort, as far as I can tell. *sigh*

It's raining...

My sister is cool. She took me to IKEA and Wal-mart to get a bunch of things I needed for my new place. I now have two Jules chairs, a snail-shaped bathroom mat, and a wok. Who's living in the fast lane now!

Someone I know is half-French, half-Indian (in the real sense of the word). She's been to both places, from Paris...

Rain, rain, rain.. tongue

What's new today. I went to a syntax class. Fun. I went to an acoustic phonetics class. Fun as well. We got to play with straws. The prof jumps around a lot and when his pager went off in middle of class, said it was to confirm that he was going to be fitting Shania Twain's earphone monitors for her...

Oooooh. You get to do all the fun linguistics stuff. I'm horribly jealous. I somehow keep ending up doing sociolinguistics and applied linguistics, both of which I find incredibly boring.

I woke up this morning (afternoon, actually) to the sound of someone next door having very enthusiastic sex (with the window open, apparently). Is there anywhere I can go without feeling like I'm the only one not getting it done? surreal

nuria:
I don't know why, but whenever I hear people having sex I get completely creeped out. Maybe it's because my neighbors are gross. whatever
swen:
I think it's ok for other's to have sex even at times when I don't get any. For me it's a sign for the world to still be kind of normal and that not everybody is a stupid nerd like me.

Besides, sex is great but not the only thing important in life. A real true friendship is far more important.

I think sex should be considered much less "sacred" and outstanding. It should be given and taken more casually not only to "the one true love" but also to someone you like and find attractive.

That's all.

More classes, more assignments, more papers to do. But it's fun! And it keeps me busy when I'm not sleeping.

I need some lovin'. frown
ophelia:
school? fun?
I hear ya on the needing lovin' frown
madigan:
I'm not sure what's worse: two jobs or classes, assignments, and papers. Tough call.

I am seriously considering Canada. Winters scare me, though.
