*This Saturday I attended a meet-up with a few people from around here that are all part of an online message board community. Went pretty well I think, all of them were at least 10 years older than me and I was my normal quiet self, but I enjoyed it. Plus, it was at O'Gara's, an Irish place, so there was Bailey's involved. Mmmm, Bailey's.
*Almost by accident, I picked up a couple of erasable ink pens last week. They don't write quite as clearly as normal pens do, but sometimes it's quite nice to be able to erase a mistake without having to worrying about lead breaking off like with pencils. Doesn't quite erase as well as pencil lead, but it's good enough for me.
*Even though I feel completely over the rather annoying cold I had awhile ago, congested nose just won't stop! I still have to blow it at least twice a day. It's the cold that keeps on giving.
*I've been getting a lot more spam than usual at my Hotmail address recently. Could it be that a spambot picked up my e-mail address from this site and entered it into an evil database?
*I was doing my laundry the other day, and after activating the dryer I wanted to add another 15 minutes to it, which costs an extra 25 cents. So I go to punch this into the machine, but it already booted me out. So I swipe my card again to get back in, and it tells me my balance is too low, no sale! Now, the balance was too low to activate a new machine, but I had more than the 25 cents needed to add a little extra time. But nooooo, the machine refuses to acknowledge any such possibility. What really bothered me about this was that someone somewhere when making this program must have inserted this line -- if balance < cost of activating dryer, refuse the card. Completely unnecessary! Why not just do that at the step after I tell it what I want? Thanks a lot, jackass. Joke was on the school in the end, turned out the standard 60 minutes did the job nicely, so they lost themselves a nice shiny quarter.
*Getting the test from hell back tomorrow. We went through the correct answers Monday in class, which gives me even less cause for optimism. Number of questions full credit given for --- zero. Number no credit give for -- quite possibly more than zero. I've been playing around with the numbers for the past few days trying to figure out where I stand. A low B may still in theory be possible, but that final exam is taking up way too much importance now. Argh.
*It's essay-writing time again in English. Problem is that this time, one of the two books to get subject material from I found absolutely dreadful to read, much less reexamine for relevant points. I could write about just the other one, but that would mean that I'd be forced to write a comparative essay over the final two books (at least one essay in the course must be comparative), and that seems like a gamble. But right now, the pros of never having to pick up the boring book again seem to be the overpowering force in my head. Maybe inspiration will strike me for the last two books, but right now this sits as another assignment worry.
That's enough for now, off to do some assignments.
