Man, she really sucks
Tuesday. 3.4.08 10:46 pm
I was in a totally happy, albeit bored, mood. And I wanted to take a picture outside. But I can't plug in the flood lights because Mom thinks that somehow I'll kill myself through electrocution.

It DID rain earlier today, (it's not anymore,) but think about this. The lights are going to be wet. OK. The outlet is dry. Both ends of the extension cord are dry. Doesn't it make sense that I can plug in the wet side first, then plug in the dry side?

Doesn't it make sense that electricity doesn't "short circuit" unless the new circuit is actually SHORTER? It's not going to bypass those nice metal contacts just because the plastic is wet.

I had a whole plan set up to get some pictures (I don't feel like explaining now), and I'd changed out of my normal clothes and everything, and she just says NO. wtf. If I'd said it was for homework, she'd let me climb out on the roof again. But NO, it's something I WANT to do instead of being TOLD to do it, and that's not a good enough reason.

That's why she never sees the product. If the effort isn't appreciated, then what's the point?

This reminds me of the time when I was doing this project at school. I ended up doing most of the work on the power point, and when I was showing it to her, she kept complaining that another boy's name came before mine on the title slide. Right off the bat, "Change the order, blah blah." I said no mostly because there's a difference between passive dislike and actively saying, "Hey, I think you're a jerk." It's called politics. Changing the name isn't a big deal, but we'd set them in alphabetical order to be fair. I'M not going to go behind someone's back. JERK!

I did doing most of it because I HAD FUN doing it, and she just won't take no for an answer. I ended up just shutting off the show, taking my flash drive, and going upstairs before the thing was even near half over. I don't think she would've gotten the point otherwise.

That was only a week ago. Apparently she's already forgotten.

STILL super cool
Friday. 2.29.08 11:49 pm
Just hung with Katie and a few of her friends. We tie-dyed shirts. Mine will be awful. There weren't any greens. :(

But it was awesome and I'm so glad I went. From about 5 until almost 10! There was some Guitar Hero. And everyone got along and it was just a super swell time. Plus her dogs remembered me. And adored me in the usual manner.

My subjects.

On a side note, I am horrified with humanity a little. I was browsing through comments on a video for youtube, and someone had pointed out rather rudely that the video was non-existent (it was just a song with a black background). The uploader, code-named DEEK, responded with the customary "Go eat a battery" attitude, which is understandable.

But the first guy, code-named ABU, goes back and explains that he's sorry, but his mother had just died and he hoped that Deek would understand that he'd been in a terrible way.

What did Deek do? He took a big, steaming SHIT on Abu's apology. He said, and I quote, "im sorri but...


am i supposed to fucking care?

i couldnt give a rats arse


lamo", refering to Abu's mother's death.

Wow. I realize that I am probably thinking too hard about this. It's just the internet. But, still, someone has just come to you over the internet, in public, and confessed that even though his MOTHER had just passed away, he'd like to say sorry for making fun of a video. You don't snub that, first of all, because of common courtesy. But...to make a statement about the death of a close person like that...

I don't know. It just seems completely inhuman to me.

Ah, well, my night was still awesome. SO LET IT BE...slept on.

Man, I feel super cool.

Just created the MOST BOMB-SHIGGITY-IST PowerPoint ever. It runs like an interactive menu (since the project is on SanDisk, my theme is oh-so-loosely based on my Sansa) that organizes the information. It looks like you're doing something cool, but really it's just a lot of "special effects". Still, I'm so proud. Made the backgrounds, which are simple yet elegant, copied the "interface" from my Sansa, BUT IT WAS HARD, and designed a few special effects.

I also managed to code a fairly complicated program in my Prog. class. There's a certain amount of joy to be had when the thrice accursed computer finally bends to your will. Needless to say, all the stuff I do out of the book has certain...extra features.

Now that I'm finished tooting my own horn, I'm going to go fetal, pass into a comatose state, maybe hallucinate vividly, and have amnesia about the whole episode.

Seaweed polymer
Tuesday. 2.26.08 11:09 pm
A professor from Clemson came to Chem today and talked about fabric engineering. Funny guy. He made plasma and a lightning storm in the microwave, which was cool. Then he squirted protein from seaweed into another chemical, I forget what, from a large syringe. When it hit the chemical it instantly turned into a long worm-shaped polymer, and he let some of us keep it. Ashley tied a piece around my wrist.

The bracelet dried out when I got outside, though, and looks less like a long noodle and more like some long hairs covered in dry snot. D:

Spanish quiz tomorrow on 25 semi-new verbs. I need to know the verb for each English definition. Ew...

Boyman wrote some stuff in her xanga that...relieved the pressure a little. I dunno. It's kind of what I wanted to hear, actually. For a long time now.

What's with my sudden popularity? I just noticed that I'm top ten for popular points and also most active. Neat! Thanks, guys.

So, for the rest of the night I shall be practicing Spanish, and after that I might try some GIMP to see how I do. That's WAY too complicated...haha.

Night!
