Getting the 1000th reply.

Also, deciding on a jet ski rental place and restraunt for St. Augustine tomorrow. Lurve that town.

I should be eating a delicious chocolate chip cookie.

Wait, why am I not doing that?

Because you respect your keyboard enough not to get delicious, delicious crumbs in it. Either that or you're afraid of comitting oneself to something that, while is certainly a fantastic experience that will make you happy, you know will end with you alone. Bathed by the cool blue solace of the monitor.

You could just hug the chip close, and love it tenderly, but alas, its time will come- why prolong the inevitable?

Slumbering, not dead
I invoke now this thread
Arise, let us snivel
And complain of all our drivel!

Once more we shall converse
In plaintext or verse
And, as we lament our lost time,
Still waste it in bickering or rhyme!

Now I remember the thread!
Man I thought it was dead!
We have a true thread necromancer.
Making this corpse one grim dancer.
By the wicked strings that moo does hold
Many a rambeling rhyme will be told.
I should really be eating
Instead I'm fast in my seating
I feel my strength depleating

I should be asleep, and I should have showered a while back.

Instead I've been Internetting endlessly, and making a video in Blender.

At band practice. But I got a scratch-throat cold and nose run, so there's not really much point. Cos I usually sing, and I don't know if they'd appreciate me replacing all the notes with hacking coughs.

Getting ready for class. I have a presentation I need to make. I need to be in time. I currently have 4 minutes to get dressed, brush my teeth and rush off to the bus. No hurry.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

Sleeping, but I was really hungry when I woke up so now I'm tired and eating ramen.
I wonder if it's too early to take a nap? It's 0807.. I have class at 1100.

I should be getting ready for class. I really don't want to, though, so i'm surfing the inter-tubes instead.
Later, in typical LinuxPenguin fashion, i shall note the time, and seeing as i do actually have to go to class, i shall hurriedly pack up my laptop and run out the door. In all likelihood i will then have to run back IN the door, retrieve my car keys, and then run back out the door again. I shall then leap into my conveyance, and only after carefully and purposely setting the heated seat to "ON" shall i screech out of my parking space and proceed across town to class.

I'd really like to work on that raycasting idea I had earlier (It's something like Mode 7, it's been implemented a million times but I want to do it anyway for fun)

But I kinda feel like sleeping or maybe eating lunch. But by the time I get to the cafeteria, the noon lunch rush will be there...
I could just make ramen again. Having ramen twice in one day won't kill me... for a few decades at least.

So that's that. Ramen, sleep, History class, raycasting, sleep, ???, profit

But the consequence of dining out with my dad/"chaffeur for the morning" has left me rather inebriated, and I am stalling around waiting to sober up.

Well, I should be working, but there's nothing to do here. Failing that, I should be studying, or working on my website, or sleeping.

As it is, I'm getting down to the dredges of intersting wiki articles, and poking in dusty nooks of the fora.

Sleeping. The period between the end of classes and the beginning of finals is allowing my circadian cycle to slip back into it's natural course, that is, sleeping between 5-6am and 3pm. Which is bad. I have to adapt back to "normal" schedule before finals...
