so, break is winding down. what did i do?

  • slept
  • went to some movies
  • played around with sdl
  • semi-rejuvinated the gnome-freebsd momentum.

this is such a dumb entry.

uh, my grades suck. i saw the ring movie. it was ok. it was three hours long, and these two old guys got into a fight, and gwar was trying to catch the hobbits, and there was this one hobbit that looked like chris farley, and liv tyler was an elf. when she said "we have to get you to my father", i imagined steven tyler as an elf. i started laughing hysterically. the wring wraiths were cool, i want their gloves.

after this class i think i have enough to write a jwz-esque anti-java rant. lets take a look at today annoyance:

int x = atoi (string);

vs.

int x = Integer.decode (string).intValue();

i _hope_ i'm doing it the wrong way.

hmm, apparently the shockingly high typing to sleep ratio has yeilded a ganglion cyst. on the top of my left wrist. on the list of things i need to have happen to me, i don't remember seeing "getting a ganglion cyst" anywhere near the top 3 million. check out ths link though. their suggestion? "hitting it with a large book to rupture the cyst". classic. i'm thinking of trying that just for pure comic value.

update, 5 mins later

apparently these guys aren't a fan of the large book cure: "It is not a good idea to try to smash the cyst yourself with a heavy object. Even if this home remedy succeeded at first, the cyst would almost always fill up again with fluid. In addition, you could seriously damage your wrist.".

wednesday, 0645, and i am introduced to warring schools of thought on large book cyst removal. this is probably the weirdest start to my day, ever.

so we were just sitting there, then he asked me "so when did you decide you don't like yourself?".

*shrugs*

so everything2 has some new thing where they are going around killing writeups that they don't like. tons of my wu's got killed, including ones that were voted at 19 and 20. i just stumbled back to that site to look something up and i'm greeted with this. as if anything else could go wrong today. the worst part is that i care.

anyway, i got up to bonobo-activation trying to build gnome2 libs from cvs on freebsd. not bad. something about a bison syntax error. maybe i'll have time over break. need to get some gnome-freebsd action happening.

keep on rotting in the free world.
