If you get annoyed at keeping up with the various bits of info I post to different places (LiveJournal, del.icio.us, SNFC, etc), check out grahams.suprglu.com. Once I pick a new place to host my photos, I’ll add that to the mix as well.
As My Roommate, Jon Parise mentioned in his journal, the wrath of Jose had me sleeping on the couch last night… :) Everyone else in the house is asleep, and I kinda want to get back and take a shower… But right now I am just SOL… It is snowing outside, so I really hope I don’t get snowed in or anything.
A bunch of us went out to MacGregor’s for some dinner and just to hang out. I was going to celebrate my performance on the Calc exam, but I think everyone else was just there for fun. :) We stayed there pretty late, and then we came back and watched Heathers, which is an amazing piece of 80s cinema. I am still amazed at the number of people who haven’t seen that film around here….
My back is a little sore, I ended up sleeping on the floor last night because Jen wasn’t really in the shape to drive, and since her car was stick no one else was really qualified to take her car back, so she stayed over and I let her take the bed… I am too nice of a guy. :)
I know Jen and I are going out in a few hours to check out Hannibal, and I am not quite sure who else is going with us… My Roommate, Jon Parise didn’t really express much interest in going, and he is planning on going apartment shopping with Ethan anyway…. I don’t know if Conlon is interested; He is getting a ride over with Jen later to work on his project, so I don’t know if he would want to give up work for some good old-fashioned cannibalistic fun. :)
I went to lunch a little while ago with My Roommate, Jon Parise and on the way, I noticed that the door to “RITchie’s” (formerly “The Claw”) was ajar. I decided to pull the door open and peek in. There were some arcade machines, some brand new red-felt pool tables. That’s all I could see before the two big arcade delivery looking guys stared me down. :)
Today I met with my advisor for my CS Department “Exit Interview”. It was kinda bizarre; he mostly asked me questions about what I thought was good in the program, what I thought wasn’t. I got a neat little pocket knife on the way out that says “RIT Department of Computer Science” printed on it. Afterwards, I got my calc exam back today… I didn’t do wonderfully, but I didn’t completely tank it either. I still need to work really hard in order to pass the course, however.
I was feeling kinda burned out today, so I sat down to watch The Filth and the Fury after dinner. It is a documentary on the Sex Pistols, and I was fairly certain that My Roommate, Jon Parise wouldn’t want to watch it (mostly because he said so). So while he was teaching his lab, I popped it in. I am a sucker for documentaries, and ones on music, it was pretty good. It gave a good idea of the genesis of the band, and the punk movement in general. There was a second documentary on the disc about the Punk scene in general, which was interesting as well.
I have been studying for my Calc exam most of the morning, and I feel pretty good about it, but I tend to choke on those exams, so I am still really nervous. Wish me luck!
I have taken some Comtrex for this cold I have, I woke up this morning with far too much snot in my head. But Comtrex has me feeling a bit dizzy, so I will switch over to Dayquil when this stuff expires (just before my exam). I always seem to get a cold or ill before big exams, Jon and I were talking, and it must be some kind of psychosomatic response; I wish it didn’t occur. :P
Why the hell am I still seeing Christmas ads? This is freaking bizarre, isn’t it bad enough they start before Thanksgiving, now they are keeping them past Christmas? Idiots.
I am studying for a upcoming Calc exam late this week. I figure it has been a few hours, I will take a break for a little while… The wood that my speakers is attached to are making an annoying noise hitting something else at certain frequencies (and volumes, heh heh). I haven’t listened to this CD in a while, it is still damn good.. :P
A bunch of people, including My Roommate, Jon Parise went skiing today. I am disappointed I couldn’t go, but I was trying to be responsible by staying home and using that time to prepare for the exam on Thursday…
Went to my morning class today, in the snow, and let me tell you, it was well worth it. That class is like novocaine for your mind. Jon is still in bed; I have been trying to be quiet as to let him rest as best as he can, but I am sure that I have unsettled him.. Not much I can do about that…
I have been working on a python module for interacting with drink. Part of reason is that Jon hasn’t been able to get PHP to do sockets right under Solaris (I don’t think it is a high priority for him), and I want a web client for Drink. The other reason is because I wanted to learn the language beyond my fundamental understanding that I had gleaned from seminars at CSH. It is a neat language, and far better than perl, but I don’t see myself using it for some of the more wack uses (like GUI programming).
Jon and I arrived at RIT a little while ago, and I am fairly unpacked…. Wish I had more time to acclimate here, but they have us back in classes tomorrow (and we couldn’t move back in until today).
