The Cosby Show is awesome. I totally didn't appreciate it enough when I was little.

Thank God for Nick at Nite!

(and Nick during the day, go Fairly Oddparents!)

This Saturday, the day after Valentine's Day is the three year anniversary of my best friend's death. She committed suicide by overdosing on Tylenol a month after she turned 21. Needless to say, I am very sad and I want to live in tomorrow so as to avoid getting to Saturday. I am going to the cemetary... I haven't visited her grave in a long time because my mom doesn't enjoy taking me to graveyards. Tomorrow before I spend time with Emp, my friend Cookie is taking me to visit my dad's grave, too, because I haven't been there in way too long either. But the anniversary of his death (3 years) isn't until June 1st. So yeah, that is my random bit of information.

I forgot to take an antihistimine before my allergy shot. I took it when I got home, but it's not nearly as effective that way. My whole upper arm is red and achy and radiating heat. I'm considering gnawing it off at the shoulder.

me too.

That, and my fingertips are completely numb because I glued them together with super glue. And there's paint on my fingernails. And a slice across my kuckle that keeps opening up and bleeding.

A few things you should know:

Never use a sharp knife to try and open a spray paint can.

Always start a child's school project AT LEAST a week in advance.

I once superglued my hand to a reindeer ornament made entirely of computer parts while troubleshooting a client's computer over the phone.

She was very friendly and understanding, and came by later that day to see my reindeer. It had a blinking LED nose. I wonder where it went...

I just got another "Oh I'm so sorry but I may have sent you a virus, go into your system and immediately delete all files ending in .exe" e-mail from a colleague.

Are there seriously still people who don't know this is a hoax?!?! <--rhetorical question. I just thought most of my friends were smarter than this. *sigh*

That is really exciting, Ophelia! So it's like a summer thing? I'm going to be in Prague for a couple of years - when I said "neighbors" I meant it in the sense that we'll also be neighbors with Kama

Speaking of which, hey Kama, we're going to be neighbors!

I had to write an essay on this poem and I found that I really liked the poem (I ussually don't like the poems my teacher wants us to anylyze) , and I told my friends about it, but they didn't really care....
anyway here is the poem so you can all enjoy

My Son, My exectuioner - by Donald Hall

My son, my executioner
I take you in my arms,
quiet and small and just astir
and whom my body warms

Sweet death, small son, our instrument
of immortality
your cries and hungers document
our bodily decay

We twenty-five and twenty-two
Who seemed to live forever
Observe enduring life in you
and start to die together

The light in our bathroom went out yesterday and we haven't called maintenance to replace it yet (it's their job). SO, as a result we use the bathroom by candlelight. That was fine, but then this morning I had the opportunity to have my first candlelit shower. It's quite an exciting experience actually. A little spooky too...

Just thought I'd share.

My second job, which I started in August and at which I am currently wasting away during a shift, is really starting to wear on me. I don't really do anything here, as there isn't much work to be done, and we're overstaffed. What little influence I had over certain things when I started has been lost, and I'm not sure why. My boss is a wonderful person, but some of my coworkers are starting to act really macho and annoying.

In short, I'm not really happy here. The good news is that another job fell into my lap last week, pays more than twice as much, is totally flexible, and is something I actually want to do. The bad news is that it's going to be at least three weeks until I can quit, and I'll feel really guilty about quitting if I do.

Sounds rough, I know. But, even though this is actually a really good situation in the big picture, it's a bummer right now, and I just wanted to vent. And hope this shift ends soon.

It snowed (well, iced to be more accurate) in Texas! We've gotten two days off of school because the roads are so slippery! I went snowboarding in my backyard (which consists of 20 acres, by the way) and actually made it all the way down a hill without falling! It's melting now though...

I have just been in the greatest of moods the past few days. I don't know why, but everything is just going my way! Little things, like my plane tickets coming in the mail, or the library book I had on hold finally being available. And the romance thread. Oh, lord, the romance thread is killing me! In a good way, of course. It's great.

Of course, last week I was miserable as all hell, unable to breathe because of my cold and bursting into tears at the slightest of provocations, so I guess this just evens things out.

But man am I happy these days!

*rant*

We have these annoying neighbors. They cook fish 3-4 times a week. Greasy fish. When they aren't cooking fish they reused the grease and cook other things that smell like fish. It is so bad that it knocks you over in the entryway to all four apartments (one of them being mine). The problem being that we can't complain to the management because while there is stuff in the lease on noise pollution, there is nothing about smells. The other night it was so bad I was gagging in my living room.

We (the other two non-smelly neighbors and myself) are combating it with glade plug ins in the entry way and lots and lots of apple cinnamon candles (like 10-12 around the apartment) since those have the most potent scents. I have gone to pre-emptive candle lighting just in case they decide to cook. They also start cooking at about 8:30-9 at night which is just about the time that I am finished eating dinner and looking forward to a relaxing evening and then bed by about 10pm. The problem is 9:30 is when the smell is the most potent and it is getting more and more difficult to sleep through it, since I can't leave the candles on while I'm asleep!

It is highly annoying.

Years ago I bought a Bengali cookbook, but I never really looked at it until a few days ago. The food in it looks delicious! I tracked down an Indian grocery not far from my work, so over lunch I went and bought a bunch of ingredients. Turns out that there is a restaurant attached to the grocery store, and they threw in a meal, which turned out to be some of the most delicious Indian food I've ever had. It seemed more like a home cooked meal than restaurant fare. I'm having a good day.

Good to know! I used to cook a lot of Thai food, and between the shrimp paste, fish sauce, and incindiary kii noo chilis, not to mention the perfume of galankal, lemongrass, and kaffir lime leaves, I got used to some pretty zingy air.

Hmmm...now I'm making myself hungry for Thai food.

Anyway, I can't wait to experience the scents of Bengali cooking. Has your friend ever passed along any good recipes?

It's finally beginning to really snow. So we missed a day of school for nothing, and now we'll probably have tomorrow off, too.

Argh. Maybe I'll just CANCEL the research project. I don't wanna grade it anyway.

I can ask her for some... I'm not into Indian spices much myself, though she would always make one milder dish that I could eat.


Random advice: Don't accidentally run over an open tube of blistex that you didn't realize you knocked off of your desk with your office chair.

"Don't accidentally run over an open tube of blistex that you didn't realize you knocked off of your desk with your office chair."


This is such a bad sentence I apologize. I was obvious delirious just before leaving work last night!

For clarification: My elbow inadvertantly knocked the blistex off my desk. The chair (with me in it) then ran over the blistex, squirting gooeyness everywhere.

Do you drop the y and add an "i" to gooey? Gooeiness doesn't look right, neither does Gooiness.

I was all set to write something lampooning that sentence, Banna, but you beat me to the punch by pointing it out yourself!

Do you just not like the spices that are typically found in Indian dishes, or do you not like spicy food in general? And by spicy do you mean hot, or are you including things like cumin, corriander, ginger, etc?

I'm a big fan of Indian spicy goodness, so if you ask your friend for recipes that she likes, tell her that she doesn't have to worry about them being too spicy.

Does she know any good Biryani recipes? I don't think that Biryani is distinctively Bengali (I could be wrong about that though), but it definitely is tasty.

Has anyone ever heard of Hekani cuisine? I think that's what it is . . .

My mother and I were driving along and I saw a restaurant that served really weird cuisine that I'd never heard of. I'm pretty sure that's what the name of it is . . .

I got here (office) at 8am this morning (Saturday) and have been working straight since then (it's now 6pm). My brain is so fried I can't keep track of where my keyframes are going, rendering is at over 3mins a frame already, and I haven't turned raytracing on yet, and I need to finish this section before I can go home, which is going to be a while.

Why am I doing this?
