rambly

I made lentil stew this weekend.  One of those days, Saturday I think.  I even had a little veggie side portion for SidneyLauren 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

/sigh

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.

It’s good to have a few friends that don’t drink

My ear buds are dead, so I’ve been walking around campus with my giant headphones.  It’s pretty cool.  They double as earmuffs.  They fit underneath my giant hood of the sweatshirt I’m always wearing, too.  The cord is so long it goes from my pocket, to my shins, to my head.

Took a physics test yesterday.  First one, so I dunno how I did.  I’m not concerned, though.  I did well on the practice test and I am just taking the class for fun, so I think I’m getting what I came for.

A bunch of us went to play badmitton in the gym yesterday.  At one point Hiro and I played against Dan and Luke in a match where we actually kept score.  I wasn’t paying close attention but I was told at one point that the score was 10-2 them and we were playing match point.  When we won that volley I told Dan and Luke they better watch out, we were gonna come from behind.  Guess how that ended.  That’s right, 9 unanswered points for Hiro and I.  Go team short and apathetic!

Today in class Paul stole someone’s sunglasses, and was still wearing his beanie and was just sitting in the middle of the lecture with that look going.  So Liam has a beany and sunglasses and copies him.  And then like 3 more of us sitting in the vacinity put our hoods way up and I had my hair in my face.  The professor was writing a bunch of stuff on the board while this was going on and he turned around and was all like, “Jesus!  What is this uni-bomber class?”  And we were all sitting in the second row so the whole first row had no idea what was going on.  It was pretty funny.

I jogged a 7 minute 50 second mile today.  That’s according to Elisabeth, I wasn’t timing.  I was surprised at the speed since I can’t remember the last time I officially ran a mile, unless that’s what Donny and I did that one time last year.  Gonna try and keep doing it fairly frequently and see if I can improve.

Tomorrow I might go grocery shopping for lentil stew fixings which I might make sometime soonish.  After this shopping we’re gonna play D&D again, finally.  Hopefully tomorrow will be a good day.
