Rite-Aid vs. Sav-On

I was going through a box of photos and noticed that all of the photos that i got developed at a Sav-On in LA and the Rite-Aid down the street from me were sticking together and fading in color very quickly. At first I was really mad because i had to peel a lot of them apart and they are for the most part only about 3 years old, but then I found that a lot of them were much improved, notably this one:

and the one above.

Also, it's been vey cold here at night, down in the 30's. We've covered out bed in thick blankets and put the space heater in the office with the dog, since the space heater doesn't do us much good when the cat opens the door. Our house gets into the 40's (right now where I am sitting the thermostat says 51.) When i stuck my head out from under the covers when I woke up, I could see my breath.

what would you say to lincoln?

I am really good at putting off my homework. For example, i have two physics labs and 1 1/2 chapters of physics homework to do, as well as some worksheets to study from, a chemistry lab write up, and 4 formal calculus problems to complete, but instead of doing that, i decided that this afternoon i should really put the Wii back on the network. Done.
Then I decided that i should get really really good at Balloon Fight.
That didn't go so well, so I decided I should figure out what all the hype over Clu Clu Land was. I could barely figure that game out, but that wikipedia entry i linked to there would have helped.
Anyway, I decided after that to get really good at Megaman, but I sucked. So here I am putting off homework again by writing a blog entry. It's working, and I feel slightly more productive than if I was playing video games. My hands are freezing because it's about 57 degrees in this house. The dog has crawled under the blanket next to me to show how cold she is.

Jon's band, the a-sides are playing tonight at 9. I think a few of my friends and a lot of people at work are going. It should be fun.

Here's a couple of ghost drawings I did to make icons for my hard drives.

The second one to to designate my large external drive, so he's fat, but yolanda's right, he's totally ugly. I think I might go take a look at my homework.

Lee Scoresby

Here's a drawing of the aeronaut lee scoresby i did this evening instead of doing my lab write-up. Also, I watched "Pushing Daisies" which is a funny television program on TV.

Raking leaves from the Japanese maple that are all dried and pink and orange feels and sounds like raking a lot of fruity pebbles, making the chore a lot more fun.

good find

Look what I found on the ground on the way home from work tonight! Lucky!

my calculus test this week was so difficult that nobody finished it the alloted time, so she posted the test online so we can do it over the weekend, and then make corrections (or in my case, write things in the blanks) in the first 1/2 hour on tuesday. I think though, even with the book in front of me, i am not going to do all that well. 

jon's band, the a-sides are in town next week. i think he's staying with us. we should probably figure that out. yolanda and I are also going to see "titus andronicus" on friday. it's her favorite shakespeare play. i understand that there are severed hands and a baby baked into a pie for revenge. sounds like it will also be my favorite soon, though it's hard to be my current favorite shakespeare musical, "Seven brides for seven brothers."

i just found out that i could have put in a part about baby eating into that paper. a missed oppurtunity. baby pie even!


yolanda asked me to write her paper for her so i did. 

eekcles is a jerk to all he meets. this is why he writes book about people being brutally beaten up. the theme of this paper is that people with names that are hard to pronounce can often write pretty good books as long as they keep it under 400 pages, and have greek statues on the front.

the story starts on pg. 1 (table of contents, pp1-2) and continues all the way to the end of the book. each of hte 26 letters of the alphabet are used at least once, and sometimes more than once. this is proof positive that aeschyutles is a good writer. As a greek philospher one said “the proof is in the pudding” (bill cosby, 1979.) Also, I think the "book" is actually a long poem. (aeschuyles, pp1-400), which means that no one outside of a classroom can enjoy it. 

in conclusion, this book is a rich tapestry of the interaction between characters, who depend on their previous life experiences and memories in order to make decisions in the present day that will lead them to the ultimate goal of humankind, eating enough food to stay alive, so that they can reproduce. (Biology, campbell and reece 2006).
