Life.

So I started the summer with four courses, which I had planned to keep since I really REALLY wanted to graduate by the end of the year. Then the Europe trip came along and took two weeks with it. Then the chance to move the hell out of my parents’ house came along and that was that. Erm, so I guess I’m taking summer term off. The academic counseling office doesn’t know this yet, because I’m still enrolled in two of those courses and plan to keep my name on the rollsheet until they end. Then the computers simply won’t …

The post of “What the…?!”

Because some things are strange enough to share. My brother’s bathroom. He claims that he bought them as an experiment, to see which flavors were most popular with his guests. The fact remains, however, that I have never seen any other guy with this many bath gels, cheap or not. — So we went into Chick-Fil-A one day to get lunch. And pass right by what I think is a bigger-than-life stuffed cow statue next to the doorway. THEN THE THING MOVES. I jump a few inches and eye it with much alarm. Y’see, it isn’t quite cartoonish enough to …

Life just keeps getting better.

…and what’s more? I have the world’s biggest, most horrific zit on my chin. No, seriously, it’s so freakishly huge that it makes me feel top-heavy. It’s one of those painful ones that’s not quite ready to extract, and I think “it” might actually be a “they”, judging by the topography and size. Yes, they are the Twin Pimples of Doom. Maybe I should pull a Nelly and just slap a band-aid over it. “Sewing accident, flying needles, very traumatic,” I’ll say when asked. Yick. It needs to be gone NOW.

Snippets.

Driving home from class Friday afternoon… pierydys: *brakes suddenly* videl_bishoujo: Eh? pierydys: NUN! *points to old lady in full black dress and huge wimple crossing in front of the car* videl_bishoujo: Yes, so it is. pierydys: Nun! videl_bishoujo: And…? pierydys: Well, not just your everyday nun. That was a hard core nun. With flowy long habit and the whole deal. videl_bishoujo: As opposed to…? pierydys: Well, these days you don’t usually see them fully done up like that. They wear stuff that’s shorter, hipper. Y’know, nun casual. videl_bishoujo: I’m not listening to anymore of this conversation. pierydys: Well, when was …

Am waiting patiently for my new domain name to propagate, thus allowing my old website to return. It was never really offline, it just reverted back to an IP address after I let the giddyupnow domain lapse. Have since registered a new one to point there, so vast updates and a complete rehaul are probably in order to make everything correspond properly. How long does it take for a domain to take root, a couple of days? It’s been so long since I’ve had to do this that I can’t remember. Right, so I was going to post about hobbies …

Work it.

So those of you that are into _Project Runway_ know that Tim Gunn (aka the headmaster Dumbledore of the fashion world), has a new book out, “A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style“. Naturally, the book tour took him by our school for Q&A and signing. There were posters plastered all over campus and even professors were encouraging us to go. However, since the event was scheduled to happen during my Friday class, I had already resigned myself to missing it and having to drive to a much more inconvenient appearance later on. Not so, it turned out!

Updatishness.

Wow. I just looked through the calendar and this journal is six years old. Some years were more prolific than others, of course, and 2006 happened to be the year when I made a grand total of six posts, half of them boring meme results that were automatically set to private view. Tsk. Of course, the reason for this was that my offline life needed quite a bit of restructuring, which I will try to condense here into a few paragraphs.

Hmmm. Physics midterm is done and over with, though I dare not think too much about how I did. Let’s just say that studying has not been my forte this quarter and leave it at that. In fact, the only thing I seem to have excelled in so far these past few months is… interior decorating. Sigh. We’ll work on that, yes. If only because Wednesday looms, along with two more homework deadlines. Whee?
