Wireless Woes

So, I’m sitting in the new Sparty’s in Holmes Hall right now. It is one of the sweetest places on campus, along with the Cyclotron and BPS, but that’s not the point.

I’m a moderator on an online forum, and part of my “job” is making sure that it remains a family site. That means editing out words like “shit” and “fuck” or comments like “it helps me get laid.” It’s kind of annoying, but I wasn’t promoted because I’m lazy and don’t care.

So, one of the members posted a fiction piece, and he included some of the aforementioned themes, so I needed to edit them out. It’s one of the perks; I can edit and delete posts on a whim if I feel like it. I edited his post, which took all of two seconds, but the wireless hasn’t been letting me submit the revised post. I’ve been waiting and refreshing and waiting some more… for an hour… and it still hasn’t submitted. I’m getting pissed off, and I would go and connect to the ethernet in my room, but I have BTB being delivered.

My stomach rules almost everything I do.

The Short Weekend

So, I was home for less than twenty-four hours this weekend, and that includes the time that I was asleep. When I was awake, I did hang out with my family, watch Bourne Ultimatum, got back my RISK set from an ex-friend’s house from two years ago, and ate some pretty good food. I had a pretty sweet time.

I also saw my little bother’s high school play, Anything Goes. He was the ship captain, and it was pretty sweet. The funniest part was that one of the characters looked, sounded, and acted just like my older cousin. Me, my sister, my two aunts, and my cousin’s twin were cracking up the entire time. Some people around us actually moved since we were… overly excited.

I also saw my old Physics teacher, Ms. Marentette. She was my favorite teacher at Groves, and it’s not only because I was in her class for five semesters (IS, Honors, and AP Physics). She’s the reason why I am a Physics major right now, and she’s just a great person. All she could say was how happy she was to see me, and that she was glad that I was happy, and how happy she was. She’s just a happy person.

Well, I might do a profile on her later, since she is really cool, but not now. I need to finish my own Physics homework.

Quark of Solitude

Truth be told, I saw the new James Bond movie, Quantum of Solace, with three of my friends. It was the second Bond movie I’ve seen, the first being Die Another Day a week ago. I don’t know why it took me so long to see one of the movies, but I think now I’m hooked.

The only part I felt… dissatisfied with was the ending, which I will not describe here. I felt that it was a strange ending, very unresolved, a little “thrown together at the last minutes” feeling, but it was still pretty good. I was worried that James Bond was actually going to be killed. Now, I know that him dying off will probably never happen, but I was still a little worried…

I also had dinner at Olive Garden tonight with some other friends and one of their friends from Canada. Pretty cool, right? The food was amazing; I had three breadsticks, chicken parmesan, and Dr Pepper. I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better meal. The Canadian friend was really cool as well (I had “met” her a few weeks ago, sort of…), and it was nice hanging out with everyone.

In other news, a charcoal grey Aston Martin is on my wish list.
