Yesterday was an exciting day. First off, my little sister (Rachel) (IMG_0221.jpg) is accepted to tech for computer science, and she came down for some “women in CS” orientation-type thing. Maybe they can convince her to go here, because I want her to but i don’t think she’s going to. I think that would be cool.

But even better was that I was about to go to class, and somebody said my name, and it was Beth! She was definitely one of my best friends at this school…well, one of my best friends in my college years, not just necessarily people at school…but she graduated in 2003 and moved to florida. Her company sent her here to do recruiting and stuff and so she was in the college of computing. We got to talk and catch up for a while at rocky mountain. I felt bad cause rachel got here and I was supposed to meet her but beth and I got hung up and rachel was sitting in the car in the parking deck for like…45 minutes. oops 🙁 but we eventually got her.

anyway, that’s all. but it was very exciting to me, beth is awesome. she needs to move back here and be my personal friend-slave.

edit:

also, i’m hungry and was looking up chicken tikka masala on wikipedia. I then started to read about curry and read this:

A number of studies have claimed that the reaction of pain receptors to the hotter ingredients in curries, even a Korma, leads to the body’s release of endorphins and combined with the complex sensorary reaction to the variety of spices and flavours, a natural high is achieved that causes subsequent cravings, often followed by addiction and a desire to move on to hotter curries. Defining this as “an addiction” is contested by other researchers.

I think i’m addicted to chicken tikka masala. i neeeeed it. now. i’m hungry. perhaps i shall visit my friend moe and his friend joey.

edit again:

Brandtson right here at under the couch tomorrow!

I sold my iMac and my laptop and anything else I could get my hands on and bought a 14" iBook.  It is old and crappy, 700MHz G3, and only has 256 megs of ram at the moment, but it is still excellent.  The battery life is awesome, it has a decent-sized hard drive, it has wireless intarweb, a combo drive…I sure love it.  It’s not very fast, but my iMac was only 400MHz, so it seems fast to me.  I don’t suppose there’s anything else to say about that.  I am happy and such.

wOh by the way, here is a buddy icon that you can use for your very own.  Yes it was the work of 38 seconds in the Gimp, yes you can do a better one, but if you don’t want the hassle, here you go.

I asked lauren if she was capable of a piece of art involving violent pirate midgets!  Once again, she did deliver!

codingismy9to5: midget pirates
codingismy9to5: attacking normal sized folks
codingismy9to5: and hurting their kneecaps and bottoms and bellies
codingismy9to5: with swords and daggers and fists!
codingismy9to5: VICIOUS midget pirates!
Lauren Sangrey: lol
Lauren Sangrey: ok

I am particularly fond of the various midgets requiring false appendages!  And also the strange figurehead!

I sure did get Co&Ca #1…THE BAG ON LINE ADVENTURES The Second Stage Turbine Blade this morning.  I will have to read it a few more times though, there is a lot of information and names in a small space.  Then I shall have to find the cd booklet and read through it.

What fun

Well, I guess wonders don’t ever cease, since it appears I now have a girlfriend. Hmm, guess there’s nothing else to say about that.
