Which Characteristic From the Samurai Code Matches You Best? (You may find out your best trait)
brought to you by Quizilla

Four things to talk about in this post. First, on Friday, my parents and I went to see Something's Gotta Give with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton. Hilarious movie although I didn't need to see Jack's ass or Diane naked. I was also disappointed by Amanda Peet's strip tease. Ah well.

My mother's birthday was yesterday so my dad has taken her out to see Harry Connick Jr. this evening. I meanwhile I'm running Windows Update and such on their computer. My parents are dial-up in a T1 world so this is taking forever of course.

In case you are keeping score I will be working at the Roxbury Community College starting next semester. Wheelock turned me down today. …

~*~What Simpsons Character Are You?~*~
brought to you by Quizilla

I was looking for something holiday themed but I was distracted by this.

Anywho, I might not be posting for awhile as I am going home for a well deserved break. Truthfully, my posting may become more sporadic next semester ( They'll still happen don't you worry.) due to a full load of classes and a job. (Wherever it may be.)

If I can't continue with my reviews, I just want you all to know I enjoyed writing them probably more than you enjoyed reading them.

Happy Holidays

It Continues

I had my second interview today. It went better than I feared last night and my possible supervisors are very nice. They did not hire me on the spot and, frankly, I'd be surprised if I'm not working in Roxbury next semester but hopefully I'm wrong. I think I accurately portrayed that I know many of the skills and am a quick learner. Again that teacher's name was brought up, this time not by me, with a similar reaction.

Last night, I played Trivial Pursuit with Her and a couple other friends. I won, although, I think on some level, I was trying to let Her win. Instead of "Harlem," I said a street was named after Malcolm X in SOHO.

It Has Begun

Today, I had the first of the two interviews. I had allowed myself an hour and forty-five minutes to get there and it took only an hour- fifteen. The interview, including tour, took twenty minutes. I was hired on the spot which makes me question just why I want this job. It certainly isn't the money... So anyway, I'll have a job next semester no matter how well it goes tomorrow. During the interview, I name dropped the professor of my Online Information class and the two people interviewing me exchanged the funniest look: I'd categorize it as the "poor child" look. It was all I could do not to crack up.

Busy Week

Well, the plan to go home tomorrow is shot to hell. Wednesday and Thursday I have job interviews. The first interview will require me to change subway trains twice. I've never done this let alone by myself. I think this makes me more nervous then the actual interview itself. The downside to this job is the long trip to get there and not getting paid.

The other interview on Thursday is just next door and pays but I think these people may be more picky since it involves money.

Tomorrow, I have errands to run. I need laundry detergent and a birthday present for my mother. I'm also going to apply for another job here at my school library. I'm not sure when I'll be able to fit in an interview though. It'll have to be Thursday I guess.

When I go home on Friday, I'm going into a coma. (If you look at my entries before previously going home, I'm sure I said the same thing.)

brought to you by Quizilla

With the fun stuff out of the way, let's get serious again.

So here I am, alone with her, or at least as alone as one can get in a busy cafeteria, and all we talk about is when we're going home for break; a conversation we already had of course. I suck.

I got a phone call from my father earlier this evening. Because of a death in the church, of a high ranking member, if you will, no less, I could be going home on the bus on Tuesday or getting picked up Friday. Neither option really appeals to me.

Before you all are like "You are narcissistic!" I'm upset by this death as well. When I worked in the office, we worked very closely on a few projects and he taught me how to make ma…

I know we've all taken a dozen Harry Potter quizzes but I thought, what the hell...

I don't really have much else to say. (Mwahahaha!!) Saddam has now been captured. If this was accomplished ten years ago under Bush Sr., I wonder how our lives would have been different.

On Fox News Sunday this morning Sen. Kerry was asked by Chris Wallace if this event made him want to retract his statement that Bush's foreign policy sucks. Kerry replied, "Not one word." and went on to list for like five minutes all of the president's foreign policy screw-ups such as North Korea, nuclear waste floating around Russia an…

More Musings

Now that I have more time to think I have things going through my mind. These will be ignored by the readers of my blog but I need to get them off my chest.

How does one know if someone is worth pursuing? What are traits that are too hideous to ignore?

If we share different politics, for example, will a relationship work? I can think of two examples where yes, they do: one with people I know and one celebrity example. My experience seems to suggest that when politics entered the picture the relationship went south.

I used to be hung up on interests, as Lady Vader may remember. I've met someone here that shares music interests (not all but some) down to favorite song. I don't think even She Who Shall Remain Nameless But Blogged About Frequently and I were at that level. (Ok, yes, we both knew all the words to "You'll Be In My Heart" but who doesn't?)

The downside, in this category, as I can see is that she is not into Star Trek! I know interests aren…

You are 'Silent Night'! You really enjoy
Christmas, and you like your Christmases
conventional. For you, Christmas is about
family and traditions, and you rather enjoy the
rituals of going to church at midnight and
turning off the lights before flaming the plum
pudding. Although you find Christmas shopping
frustrating, you like the excitement of
wrapping and hiding presents, and opening a
single door on the Advent Calendar each day.
You like the traditional carols, and probably
teach the children to sing along to them. More
than anyone else, you will probably actually
have a merry Christmas.

Stick a Fork in Me. I'm Done.

I had my last two classes yesterday and today. Yesterday, I received a care package from my mother's church. The purpose of which is to help college students get through finals. When I received mine, I was halfway finished with the last assignment of the semester due this morning. (That's a fun story but I'm too exhausted to relate it.)

Today, I tried to get boots for the second time this week. The first time, on Monday, I was told they had nothing in size 10. Today, all they had in my size was the boots worth $120, $150. A straight male would never pay that much for boots and a gay male would find them way too ugly. So for the next week or so, I will continue to trudge through puddles and snow in my sneakers. I haven't fallen yet but we're due for freezing rain tomorrow...

I may be going home Tuesday. I was going to stay for the party I mentioned earlier but, as I also said earlier, my friends will all be gone by the 17th and this boot thing makes me …

A Possibly Quick Post Today

Ok, yes, I'm avoidant to a point. I'm half done with the Role of Research paper though. (Still due tommorrow.) I should explain also that I may be highly obsessive but I'm not compulsive. I've compulsively bought one cd but thats it. I am not narcissistic! I care about other people! As far as the histrionic rating, I don't know what to say. On a certain level, I admit do crave the spotlight but on another level I don't want it at all. After reading the definition, yes, I'll admit I'm moderately schizotypal. I guess, on a certain level, I am moderately borderline. After reading the definition of dependent, I should be thankful I wasn't labeled very high.

In other news, Battlestar Galactica will be thoroughly reviewed after it's all done but I will say: Where is Cassiopeia? Will they redo the other episodes?

Many of you who read my blog, and know me well, would you say this is accurate? I am amused by the antisocial level so I guess there's a bright side to this...

Alias:

It was good. Having Will undercover was kinda fun and, even though it's kinda typical TV, having him kill Allison was an interesting twist. I don't have a problem with him going back to Wisconsin. If the Covenent really wanted him dead, they would have found him. Why Sark thought he was dead just implies to me that he's an idiot, one that tortures his own father but an idiot nonetheless.

Not that it's that surprising but apparently "Julia" helped Lazerey fake his own death. Why, I'm still not sure. The fact that Syd apparently willingly had her mind wiped seems to imply Juila is indeed her and did something really bad.

The container of flesh labeled "Milo Rimbaldi" suggests to me that he predicted a time that cloning would be possible although why he thought someone would want to, I don't know but remember both Syd and Sloane appear in his journal.

Poor Sloane, Syd doesn't know Lindsey put a contract out on her. If I were Sloan…

To update you: I finished the Modern Publishing paper and have started the Role Of Research paper. It's going slower than the other paper which is really not surprising.

Ah my first Boston blizzard...I guess I'll have to write that paper...

Yesterday, we had a very nice wine and cheese party in the living room of the dorm. Once again, my stereo was blasted for the music. I loved the smoked gouda...You'll remember that this wine and cheese party was supposed to be in October. I'm glad we finally had it.

Tomorrow we will have a Goodbye Tea for the December grads of the dorm. At last count, there were ten people graduating this semester. There will be chee…

The Modern Publishing paper will be done today! (Due Tuesday.) Yay! Then I move on to my Role of Research paper. (Due Wednesday.) Eh.

I have a question. I'll be done with classes on the 10th. I was planning to stick around for the end of semester party on the 18th but it seems that none of my friends will be going. Do I stick around anyway or just go home?

I haven't actually seen this movie but Lady Vader and other women drool over this guy so I guess this is good.

As I figured. I seriously bit myself in the ass not doing anything on those papers over Thanksgiving. I haven't finished even one and time is running out! Argh!!! (You may be asking why am I not working on it now. ::shrugs::)

I don't have much to add after writing that huge post last night but I thought you'd be interested the star of The Whale Rider was on the Tonight Show last night.

Finishing my Modern Publishing paper seems harder than I thought. I'm having too much fun with certain sections and having no interest in other sections...

Thanksgiving Weekend

I'm touched I was missed by at least one person. An anonymous reader read one of my stories as well... Thank You Lady Vader for the former. I could have posted while I was home but I went home for a change of pace. I did nothing for days and loved it.

On Wednesday, I went home to CT and saw Enterprise which is unusual for me but the WB decided to start their repeats before everyone else. I thought the concept of the episode was good. Having the Xindi collecting all the different blood types would ensure the whole human race wouldn't be left out of dying when the weapon was set off. Archer was right in suggesting that the Xindi were hiding in the past. They had to pick a time where blood type was kept track of so we're talking twentieth century anyway so why not make it 2004? I liked how they had it in Detroit instead of somewhere in California as it has been lately. (I think the TOS episode "City on the Edge of Forever" was Chicago.) I also loved how T&…
