can’t take it?

Curse you, stupid cheap HP printer that stops responding after being plugged in too long! *shakes fist*

Foiled by my own laziness. I got on the computer(s … laptop for music and desktop for Adobe programs) to start work on my art project right after I got out of my last quality lab, woohoo! (The lab left my elbow feeling a mite sore, folding ninja star parts over and over and over…) And then … I decided to have some yogurt. Then I decided to tidy up the table a bit (after having left it that way for how many days previous?). Then I watched the last of a Mythbusters episode, the jaws special edition.

I might have found out that the art project isn’t due until Friday. ehehe. I don’t know what I did after that. Probably reading friends list. Then I was sorta hungry since I had only a yogurt and I was too lazy to make lunch so I just ate chips and salsa. Then I watched an episode of Step By Step because they were all young in it. Then I watched Ellen because Pink was on at the end; Pink just kept laughing and laughing.

Then I was gonna watch Oprah’s show about aging but C called to be picked up so I did and we got McDonald’s and I watched the whole Simpsons season 5 disc with the Be Sharps, Camp Feare, Homer going to college, and Treehouse of Horror # episodes. Then … I came here … and wasted time doing I do not remember what.

Back to the opening sentence … somewhat … yeah, my printer won’t print, and I don’t want to work on my art project any more because I can’t see what the heck it’s going to look like when it’s printed. I don’t know whether to keep the changes I made or not! I guess I should just save it as a copy. But I still don’t want to work any more on it, because what if all that work is for naught and I don’t want to keep the changes so I have to go back to the original? urgh.

But basically I’m just blaming my laziness and lack of work progressed on a piece of equipment with a fault that I am aware of … but temporarily forgot today … and even forgot that I had it on … so yeah.

I wrote my lab report. I actually got to two pages. Be amazed; I usually only manage the bare minimum of length required, if I do. And even then the writing is still bad. Bah. Should cut out the part of my brain that don’t do English good and get an implant.

I stayed up until 12:30 working on it. I got the charts made, extra credit, diagrams, cover page, everything. It really didn’t help that I spent 5 hours watching the History Channel. (I’d planned to write an entry about that, but … lazy now.) I turned in that report today. While in lab I just thought of all the things that made it crud. And then I told myself to not care.

Hm, I’ve got a wall crit on the poster Wednesday, art final tomorrow (not studying, woo!), 320 presentation Thursday, art project due Friday. Should make a Powerpoint slide for presentation by Wednesday night. And poster is due Wednesday of next week before the final. Bah. Stupid printer.

woozy, so woozy

Well the little dog in the apartment upstairs is yapping his little head off and has been for quite a while now, so I might as well write here.

Umm, Tuesday wasn’t that interesting. Actually this whole week wasn’t really that interesting. Tuesday I took a quiz (just found out I got 106 on it! woot!) and spent an hour and fifteen minutes (of the two hours allotted) looking busy in art while I listened to classmates talk, since the project can be done on Illustrator and not everyone can bring their computers to class.

Wednesday I went to class then spent the rest of the day working on said art project. Or, well, I guess I kinda interspersed it with reading LJs and blogs and such, and also working on the new layout for the blog. *wry grin*

That dog sounds like it’s in a hamstertrail thing all over the apartment or something. I can hear its footsteps padding all over the floor/ceiling. x.x Annoying. I wish I could bang on the ceiling. But there’s some faux finish on it, and it’s already scraped off in the living room so I don’t want to chance damaging it here. Plus the ceiling’s too high, and I’m too short, even with a stepladder. XD

Umm lessee today is still Thursday. Well no technically it’s Friday. I have to remember that. I’m supposed to remind C to do something Saturday, and I keep thinking it’s Friday (night) and that tomorrow (day) is Saturday.

Anyway. Class, and critique in art on our works in progress. I should remember to work on that this weekend. Also to copy over all my uncopied notes for Sheetfed because we have a quiz Tuesday. But I always say that. And so far on 3 of the 4 quizzes I’ve gotten 100%+ XD

I finished Carrie. I don’t remember what I thought. Er, I mean about what I read today. Earlier thoughts I’ve had (don’t remember typing them up here, correct me if I’m repeating myself): It’s an interesting format. The normal third person narrative interspersed with “articles” and characters’ accounts. It’s not so one-sided, I guess. Or maybe, with third person, unbiased-toward-any-character-at-all. (Unless of course there’s really cool characters that you just gotta love. *thinking of Ender and Bean*) I don’t know, it’s past 1am and I’m just kinda woo. People shouldn’t let me stay up this late. Yeah, where are you, people?! I’m saying weird totally unbased (is that a word?) stuff here.

It’s also interesting how the movie makes it all more horror movie-ish. Shock. Snap. That person’s dead. The book is more horrifying. That’s probably because you’ve got the narration there. Carrie thinks this, other people think that.

I started reading The Shining when I finished that. (Because it’s in the same book; it has four of Stephen King’s novels unabridged.) I read on Wikipedia that King didn’t like the movie. I haven’t seen the whole movie. But I pieced together the whole thing from parts I saw. And the Simpsons. *snerk* The Wikipedia entry didn’t hurt either.

I checked the school library catalog earlier this week and it said Cat’s Cradle is not checked out, but it wasn’t there this morning. grrr. There’s this option I have of asking the main desk to look through the whole library for it (like on desks and in cubicles) but that just seems like such a pain in the neck. I guess I’ll either wait for the library at home to get that book, or I’ll buy it and then donate it to the library. Or maybe just never finish it because ya know I do want to read the important books, but this book just isn’t The Count of Monte Cristo (i.e., really juicy and fun), and I’m just that lazy.

I wonder if the dog is yapping himself hoarse.

I finished Shadow of the Giant Tuesday night. Or was it Monday? Not quite sure. I can’t believe Card ended the book with Bean that way! XO I mean, sure maybe it’s interesting or whatever, but I don’t know, I just think it’s unresolved and lame. Oh well.

Now to go through the whole series (Ender and Shadow both) and write up little bios on all the characters, because fudge if I can remember all the little things, then it comes up from behind to re-enter the story and whaaa? I get confused. So I want to unconfuse myself. I’m debating whether to make a website out of it. It would be my first fansite/informational site. (The Ikyuusan one doesn’t count because uh I didn’t do anything with it. I don’t really count my guinea pig site either because there’s not much info there, just little random articles, and really bad writing on my part for the bios.) It might also be construed as copywrite infringement. :o Somehow. I don’t know. I don’t suppose so. I guess I’m just paranoid. Wow this is a huge paragraph. *cuts in half* … It’s still big.

Um. I should update on things I mentioned earlier. In DTP lab, other students needed more time to finish the ad (probably same problem I had), just one-third but he still gave us time, despite saying the previous week he wanted them ready to print next class. ^__^ Got my other two midterms back. I guess I didn’t mention one. Huh. Well I thought it was fairly easy sailing. (Whereas the other midterm I didn’t feel too secure about.) Turns out I got pretty much the same grade on both. HAHA!

There was a bug on my car this morning. I crawled in the passenger side because it wouldn’t get off the driver side. It looked like some sort of stinging wasp/hornet thing, so I didn’t want to make it angry. (I tried kicking it off with my foot, but he was pretty high up and I couldn’t hit him right, so he just lifted up his back leg to wave back at me. XD;;) The midsection, er the part connecting the thorax and the abdomen (I’m totally assuming that’s what they’re called; I haven’t had basic biology in a long time) was reeeeally thin, as thin as his legs, and I thought he was dying, but I don’t really know. (I actually said “WTF is that?” out loud. But not “duble-yoo tee eff is that” because that’s lame.) It didn’t have stripes like a bee or a wasp. I don’t know.

Enough of thinking about bugs. I guess the people upstairs decided 2 am was late and they wanted sleep, so they shut their dog up. Good night.

use the spork, Luke

I live in a family of dorks, muahahaha.

Last week I went with Mum to the market and I bought a box of Honey Smacks. I didn’t notice when I grabbed it that they were giving something away inside (although Mace Windu posing on the box should have been a big clue), but they were. A “light-up saberSPOON.”

Next morning Mum told me about the spoony goodness. She said when Daddy saw the box he opened it up, took out the spoon and assembled it together. Then she said she wanted to show it to me, but she couldn’t find it, so maybe Daddy took it with him. I said, “Did Daddy take it to school to show his frieeends?”

So when he came home I asked him if he took it to work and he said yeah. I said, “Did you show it to everyone?” “Not everyone, but I showed some people.”

My dad is over 50. He works on computers. And he shows up to work with a “saberspoon” that lights up. *grin*

Then Mum made a comment about how it should have been a fork, not a spoon (Simpsons reference…), and that maybe we should cut it up to make it into a fork. But, my brother took that idea and … see for yourself.

I love my family.

(Also, false advertising!! It doesn’t light up all the way!)
