I made lentil stew this weekend. One of those days, Saturday I think. I even had a little veggie side portion for Sidney. Lauren did the grocery run for me cause there was a preponderance of people wanting to go, but she didn’t believe me when I wrote tomato juice on the list so she got tomato sauce. We just diluted it 1/3 and it worked fine. Might actually be cheaper that way. Got leftover ingredients. All I need is onions and beef and I could make some more. I thought it was good. It never gets the acclaim my milkshakes do, though.
Got to a 7:20 mile today. So that’s faster than last time, and is extra impressive since my legs were sore when I started because I’ve been doing fairly extensive DDRing over the weekend. Lauren has been showing increased interest in DDR lately, so I have a partner.
I also got the highest score on the physics test. 33.5 out of 34. Low was 9.5, but, I think, that must be quite the outlier.
That’s about the end of the good news school wise, though. Well, I haven’t done poorly on anything yet, it’s just the work that’s upcoming that is lame. Resume thing due tomorrow, which I already did, but it wasn’t very fun. Plus, it’s one of those stupid assignments with no real point and it is therefore difficult to know what is expected. Then I might have a test on Wednesday. Can’t tell because the professor doesn’t know, or didn’t during class, and his online schedule has no dates. Useful. It’s sometime this week though for sure. I also have another one of those stupid research papers. They’ve gotten stupider because he explained how he wants us to use super official references. References are fine if it’s a real research paper, but there’s no primary literature on the history of RAM, so referencing bad sources is just going to get harder. Whatever. I also have a basic weekly homework assignment in that class, but I did that already. That was fine. Then in my other class with that prof I have a test on Friday, and normal homework, also finished already. Kinda really lame, but easy. And the resume professor is giving me a test on Friday, too. That’s all, except I’ll get homework in physics tomorrow.
I’m irritated that I’m in 3 upper level computer science classes, we’re in week 5, or something, and I’ve written no code. Not a single line. You know what I like about computer science? Code. You know how I learn computer science? By coding. /rolls eyes
On another note, there may or may not be a person I know who has Fable 2 early. I’ve spent a few hours watching. Looks basically like Fable… only better? It’s fairly fun to watch and make jokes and stuff.
Oh, and like it says on Lauren’s blog, we watched Wayne’s World for free today. Kinda like back in the Linfield days. I got the 3 noobs, Yusuke, Elisabeth, and Lauren, to come see it, and then there was Sidney and I as old fans. It was a big hit. I re-love that movie. Maybe they liked it enough they’ll rent the sequel? Maybe?
Also on Lauren’s blog, everyone’s leaving this weekend like they did weekend before last. This time they’re going to Sidney‘s. It’s her mom’s birthday. It’s great that I’ve got all my work this week so this weekend when I have all this free time I won’t have anything to do. More D&D delay. These Central people only managed to stay focused for 2 hours this weekend. They had a bit of a brutal fight, and poor Yusuke was unconscious basically the whole time. Gotta go through with them and get them better acquainted with their powers to speed up combat. Other than that Elisabeth needs to stop pouting about her bad rolls, and we need to get them far enough to have some better role playing hooks. /shrug
Also I voted. Thanks to Lauren‘s stamp.
K. Well, I’m spent.
