music to soothe the
There is just one moon and one
And a smile means friendship for everyone
Though the mountains divide and the oceans are wide
a small world after all...
(Robert Sherman and
Richard Sherman, "It's a Small World")
I apologize to
those of you who will fight for hours to get the music out
of your heads...
finally found a copy of The Eye of the World. I've
been tempted to read the others in the series, but I wanted
to read them in order. code
I can't believe that I'm burnt out... I thought you had to
actually be doing something to burn out.a o hell
checkin kiosk project is... well, it can be best described
as 'stillborn'. I can't find a reasonable way to do it
without knowing at least a little bit about how the database
info is stored, and that's apparently secret. This also
means that I can't figure out how to make it general, which
means that it won't really serve any purpose to anyone other
than the school I'm at.
Anyway, I've found a better
project to start: a replacement for the "Food Processor"
program I mentioned earlier. Maybe I'm in over my head,
though... the kiosk was something whipped up by some guy at
the school I attend... Food Processor is a commercial,
It doesn't really look that
complex... obtaining the food info would be the hard part...
and the hairiest, legally. Once that's available, the rest
looks simple. Maybe I should provide it to owners of Food
Processor, since they already have the food databases.
I hate AOL. I hate
AOL. I hate AOL. And I don't even use it.sleep
I hate AOL for
making these people who can only use AOL think that they're
internet geniuses, even when they can't figure out the
basics. I hate AOL for making my life miserable when they
call me and bitch at me because I 'broke their computer'
when AOL kicks them off every five minutes. I hate AOL
because it really should have an IQ requirement for
joining. Never mind... AOL would have maybe five
subscribers if they did that.
Sleep cycles have been
strange again... stay up until 5 AM, sleep until 2 PM, stay
up until 3 AM, sleep until noon... español
I wish I could just do
one or two all-nighters and be done with it, but no, either
my neighbors or my school decide to monopolize my
afternoons. For example, today I took two of my friends to
the mall... I had to go to Sears anyway to pick up a wrench
Dad needed to replace the motor mounts in his car.
least I managed to get Quake 2 set up on one friend's
machine so we can deathmatch. He royally sucks at FPSes, by
the way... I should let him be the server so he'll stand
half a chance, given my crappy connection.
Mis amigos y yo
fuimos al restaurante del Rey de Hamburguesa esta tarde.
Cuando estamos alla, hablé con una amiga de mi primera clase
de español. Nos charlábamos hasta llegamos al cajero.
(My friends and I went to Burger King this afternoon.
When we were there, I spoke with a friend from my first
spanish class. We chatted until we arrived at the cashier.)
