Without further askew…

Hello everyone! I’m sorry it’s been SOOOO long since my last entry.

Right now Stella, Jason, and I are playing Scrabble in my room. I started with a 7-letter word, which earned me 62 points, but it seems Stella has already caught up to me. She’s really good, so Jason and I are pretty much doomed…

But on to brighter subjects! My laptop is now running Gentoo Linux. Whoot. I get to go on a backpacking trip Tuesday for a class, which should be cool. Other than that, this week has been very stressful, with a test and a midterm and about 3829 other things I need to do, but the weekend is approaching, and things are finally cooling off.

Stella is watching me type. I’m not sure what I think about this. Should I be careful what I say? I guess there’s nothing offensive I could really say. I love you, Stella.

Yay!!! We’re getting pizza. I pulled a Stella when Rick suggested it by suddenly inhaling quite loudly. You’d think there was a sunset around or something…

I guess that’s all for now. Hopefully the adoring fans will be appeased, at least for a few more months. BE APPEASED!

Goodbye.

Showers

Can anyone help me? I’m having some space-time continuum problems. To put it simply: It is impossible for me to take a short shower. Case in point: this morning. I got up and thought, “Let’s see if I can take a 2-minute shower today!” I got in the shower, warmed up, shampooed my hair, scrub, scrub, scrubbed, and went back to my room. I looked at my clock to see how much time had gone by. Any takers? 2 minutes? 5? Try 20. O_o … ? It’s as if as soon as I step into the little cubicle, I’m propelled to a relativistic velocity for a few minutes, and when I return, years have gone by. Can anyone help me?

In other news… Jason and I wrote a program yesterday. As a rule, I despise working with partners or in groups. Yesterday I found an exception. There seems to be a principle here: If the other person actually knows what they’re doing, PARTNERS WORK GREAT! Needless to say, Jason and I had a blast, even though we found out we were doing it wrong when we thought we were done… but that’s another story. Kudos to Mr. D.

Can a nerd get a lil’ LOVE in here?

Ciao.
