My stuff came this morning, yay!
First thing I did involved digging out the monitor to Big Compy and hooking it to Old Vaio (the one with the busted screen). Laughed at all the old crap from high school senior year and all my undergraduate silliness.
Spinning pineapple drawn and animated in Flash! I had this titled thereisaseasonturnturnturn.gif. (EDIT: apparently you have to click on stationary pineapple to get it its own page. It’ll spin there.) (EDIT 2: apparently it depends on your browser)
Also, of the 50 songs I currently have rated 5 stars, 22 of them were rated 5 stars back in the era of Old Vaio.
That is all.
Haha, WoW is fantastic. I made a cow (a Tauren, but they’re cows) and his name is Hruck. I found another cow named MooMoo and we bowed and waved to each other all night.
I think it’s also pretty damn funny that Sean, Megan and I were all in their house playing WoW on our computers and chatting over the servers rather than in person.
Technology dependency, anyone?
Today’s song: Caught in the Crowd by Kate Miller-Heidke
Oh goodness, Thackeray’s Vanity Fair is hilarious. It’s putting me in the mood for NaNo, which is both good and bad, ‘cause right now I have far too much calculus to do to have any free time to write, which is bad, but it’s also making me think of new ideas, which is good.
So here is a list of things we need to do while I’m back in Moscow:
- Rock Band party
- Drunken party of insane fun (you all know what I’m talking about) in my basement. This time you’ll all need to stay the night, ‘cause I want to drink, too. This could be combined with Rock Band party easily.
- Go on a mini road trip. Because mini road trips are great.
- Screw around in the park.
- Screw around in Shari’s.
- Get naked (could be combined with any/all of the above).
- Drag show (I’m assuming I’ll be there for Pride).
Sound fun? I think so. I miss you weirdos.
Today’s song: Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood by Santa Esmeralda
I know, I know, I should have known by now.
Yeah. Weirdest. Dream. Ever. It was so vivid, that’s what made it trippy. I think Matt, Rebeca, some other dude that I didn’t recognize but apparently knew, Nathan, Maggie, and myself were there. We were right behind the deli thing.
Why did we have a little handheld shopping basket full of bacon? Who knows.
Why did Maggie evolve into a Spearow? WHO KNOWS.
At first we were all, “wow, Maggie’s a Spearow” but that rapidly changed to “WHERE IS SHE TAKING OUR BACON.”
I also think I have decided what my first tattoo shall be. I’m thinking I’ll get a lambda, either on my back somewhere or on my shoulder. Why a lambda? Reasons:
1) It’s Greek. I like Greek and hope to learn it someday.
2) “Leibniz” starts with a lambda in Greek (duh).
3) Lambda is the symbol for eigenvalues, and while they’re evil to calculate, they’re necessary in FACTOR ANALYSIS, my absolute true love in the world of statistics.
4) It’s also a recurring symbol in Half-Life (just realized this), which is pretty awesome, too.
Yeah. It’s really one of the only ways I figure I can tie together my love for Leibniz and my love for factor analysis without tattooing “I love Leibniz and factor analysis!” on me somewhere.
Side note: the apartment’s MINE! I move in May 1st, but my mom’s going to come up on the 8th, as I can’t move my chair by myself, at least up several flights of stairs (the elevator is about the size of my current bathroom, which is too small for anything other than a broom closet).
Today’s song: The Great Escape by The Rifles
After a conversation with Maggie yesterday night, I remembered that Claude had a MySpace that’s about a year old now. However, god knows what the login info is, so a new one was created.
He needs friends! He also wants to make it to Pride in August, so hopefully that will happen.
Also, I feel ridiculously hot (temperature-wise, not attractive-wise) today, but apparently my temperature is about 95-ish. Weird.
Today’s song: Right Here, Right Now (radio edit) by BWO feat. Velvet
This has been done for a few days, but I only got access to a scanner this afternoon.
Making Matt not look like an old man with the way his glasses were casting a shadow across his face = hard. This proved to me that I need to practice drawing non-LSD-type stuff. This is also the smallest drawing I’ve done in awhile (it’s about ¼ the size I usually do).
Anyway, I hope you like it, Matt! I’ve always been very bad at drawing lips, so I especially apologize for that part, haha.
Yay for drawing.
Today’s song: Sponsored by Destiny by Slagsmalsklubben
Jeremy = best stats teacher EVER. Just had to have that known.
Also this. I’ve known Tyler since I was born. He’s the son of one of my mom’s best friends, and as such we used to do a lot of stuff together. So yeah, I got this call this morning. Pretty insane. RIP, Tyler.
