I managed to leave my science book at school.

With all my homework papers in it. That I need to finish HERE, not the block before it's due.

*starts over*

I feel crappy today.

Instead of sleeping last night, I involuntarily swallowed almost constantly. This was to reduce the dry, itching at the back of my throat, which was quite horrendous. But since I had to do it every 20 or 25 seconds, it apparently didn't help much. As a topper, I had a sick stomach because of all the saliva I'd swallowed this morning.

My mom gave me a throat lozenge, which let me get some sleep for about two hours. Then I went to school.

My throat is still nasty and I keep hacking/coughing. All day at school. This is big deal for me, because I don't have allergies (soon to change? D:) and I never get sick.

I think it's the amount of chlorine they put in the stinking pool. It burned my nasal passages out..

OH, YEAH! Now I remember that yesterday I got a bunch of that bitter water up my nose and I had to stop to catch my breath.

Anyway. It sucks. Hope your days are better!

Yeah, I just saw that. I'm going to be talking like Tony Stark for the rest of the school year. I already kind of do, anyway. My mom liked it, so you know it's good.

My Sansa broke about a week ago...I stepped on it, I think. The screen was cracked, but something inside was also broken. Because it only stays on for about 4 seconds, and the computer can not communicate with it anymore. BUT!

I'm getting an 8 gig Zune. And I'm super excited about it. I've told multiple people. Multiple times.

Read another Ted DekKer book...and am also thrilled with it. Now I need to buy the last one in that particular series. Black, Red...and then White. Fitting.

Yesterday I went to Katie's house for an hour or so, and I glomped the crap out of her. What fun. Really, it was fun. Apparently she was holding out on her cooking, though...D:

Mosquito season....merr.

Anyone seen the Trailer for the movie City of Ember? Man, that looks intense...

I did the math in school because I was bored. As it turns out, my pizza program can yield over 4,200 meal combinations. Tell me if my logic is wrong.

First, the toppings. This is the most convoluted part. There are five toppings.

Any one topping: can be represented by all one digit numbers from one to five; 5

Any two toppings: all two digit numbers from 11 to 55 with only the numbers 1,2,3,4, and 5 and no doubles; 20

Any three toppings: all 3 digit numbers from 111 to 555, etc, no triples, not counting the numbers that are just in a different order (like, 124 and 142); 123, 124, 125, 134, 135, 145, 234, 235, 245, 345...I can't think of any other combinations, so 10.

Any 4 toppings: Only four possible combinations. 4

And, add one for all five and another for none at all. That's 41 total combinations.

Second comes the Extras. There are three things to choose from, with 4 choices each: three flavors and NONE. 4 chips * 4 cookies * 4 drinks = 66.

41 topping combos * 66 extra combos = 2706. That's already a lot. Double that because there are two sizes of pizza to choose from, and you get...5412.

Is it just me, or is this a HUGE number? Please check my logic, especially that for the toppings.

EDIT: Thanks to Zanzibar, I noticed that the any two toppings number can't be correct. It's 10, not 20. I forgot to exclude repeating numbers like I did with the triple and quadruple digits. The new total is 4,092. (Haha, what a difference.)
