william gates
56th day of 2004
Yessss... Bill Gates came to see me today. Driving his beat-down 87' chevrolet (I think), he came to Cornell today to give a presentation on "software breakthroughs."

I was very fortunate to get a ticket—so lucky, in fact, I found out at the talk that my ticket was a reserved ticket, allowing me to sit in the 3rd row, direct center of the auditorium, about 10 feet from Bill Gates—yesssss! vict0ry! Moreover, too many tickets were printed accidentally (like several hundred tickets too many) so a lot of people who got tickets were unable to attend. Yessssss!!! I win!! Plus, even with this surplus, tickets ran out within 20 minutes of being released. YESSSSSS!!!!

Ok, so anyway, let me debunk some myths. First, Bill Gates is hilarious. He has a great sense of humour. Secondly, he is tall; I'd approximate 6-foot. And lastly, he did not give me a million dollars, thereby blatantly violating our unspoken gentleman's agreement.

He didn't really talk about software breakthroughs—but rather, advertised some upcoming ms products, himself, his charity foundation, and the field of computer science. I also had my first prelim (in several months) today. So thank you for being that kind of girl.

sunny days in Ithaca
49th day of 2004
Long time, my friends.... I am still alive and well, except the fact 104% of my face is frost-bitten.

Here's a recap of what's been happening. Over the weekend, I spent the entire morning and afternoon in the computer lab. At night, I watched the all-star stuff. The half-time performance r0cked.

Monday night, my partner and I generated a 250kHz sine wave using a 16mHz crystal. Today, my first class was cancelled (in both senses). In other news, I've already stolen over 20 sandwiches from the dining hall. Vict0ry!

week in review: the canine lake
30th day of 2004
Well, well, well... so it seems the first week of school has passed. What happened? Nothing really. Already had a quiz, added some classes, and did the hokey-pokey.

According to my internal mileage counter, I've already worked 25.6 miles. I've already spent ~$70 on $8's worth of food and service, eating duck w/ cherry sauce and "borrowing" sandwhiches from the dining hall. And lastly, with the addition of dirty laundry, text books, and stuff, I have successfully reduced my 4 sqft. of free space in bedroom to 0.4 sqft.

I wish that I could take it all away.

well, I am back
Thursday. 1.22.04 8:00 pm
Yes indeed, I am finally back at school. And yes, it sure does suck.

Here's my setup: Imagine the smallest room possible. That is where I live. Put in a bed, a small desk, a dresser, then push in walls on all sides as far as possible. It's so small in fact the outlet takes up 1/10th of the room, the window takes up 4/5th, leaving me just enough room for half a post-it note.

Additionally, the toilet's small as hell too. At first, I thought I had 2 sinks; one normal height, one for midgets. Anyway, 8 more weeks to go before spring break. I hope this semester will bring many interesting adventures; all of which I will accurately note here with great detail.

And yes, I need to find my own grub now.

burger knights
11th day of 2004
I went in to Burger King today. After I paid with my chocolate coins, I took a wad of napkins over an inch thick. Believe it or not, this was pretty much accidental, since my original intentions had been to only take half an inch for my 99 cents fries.

However, as my greasy fingers firmly grasped the napkins and proceeded to pull them out, the most unbelievable thing happened. I managed to pull out more napkins than I had ever in my life. Did I set a world record? Did my cheapness subconsciously overtake my mind? Or had I always been a total cheapskate?

It didn't matter. The cashier/manager/illegal citizen saw me and shouted "Stop! You fuckin' thief!" And then it happened....

I was pelted with sizzling balls of beef heavily infected with the mad cow disease. The oily beef burned through my elementary school class of 94' t-shirt. It was quite painful. I felt myself becoming mad.

Nevertheless, through this anguish and distress, I held tight to my dear napkins and bolted out the door. I ran faster than a 4-day old road kill. I spun faster than a smiling acorn. I jumped higher than an aged snail. As I looked down at the creamy white napkins, I knew this had all been worth it. Yes. Yes. Yes....

christmas with the decepticons
Tuesday. 12.30.03 10:47 am
listening to: Puddle of Mudd -- spin you around

Don't worry guys. I'm fine.

The Decepticons had planned to rip off my kneecaps and drown me in a salt-vinegar solution. However, because it was the holidays, I told them such brutal action was inappropriate. Then, during their microsecond of hesitation, I transformed myself into a Christmas tree and slowly made my way out the door.

By Christmas eve, I was home. I got awesome gifts these year, all in the form of money. In fact, with this money and my previous savings, I almost have enough to get that awesome toy I always wanted at the "99 Cents Store." I'm so excited.



Oh yea, and check out my awesome new site: HiBOT.com.
