premise: i have to do homework
conflict: i hate homework
the patriots won the superbowl. i know, it might not seem like much to you, but it means so much to me. i know most tech people are condescending towards sports and sports fans, but i've always been a fan. i love watching sports. and i follow the boston teams. aside from 1986, when i was 4 years old, this is the first time my team actually won the game that mattered. the whole weekend was just really great, and then the game, and we won. i'm still nowhere near coherrent. we just ran around worcester at night, screaming at cars. this article sums up how i feel. i don't even know how to end this. i can't really describe what i'm feeling, because i've never felt it before, and there aren't really words for it. of all my friends, i've known gabe the longest. we're fans. we always talk sports. i talked to him tonight for the first time since the game ended. this was the weekend it all just came together:
23:54:54 Gabe Leiner: yeah 23:55:09 Gabe Leiner: this is just like 23:55:20 Gabe Leiner: so much better than anything else 23:55:35 Gabe Leiner: this doesnt suck
spam subject line: anthony, your time is running out.
a quote from one of my floormates, as the end credits of Full Metal Jacket begin to roll: dude, i thought that movie was going to be a comedy.
quote from the movie, just before the end credits roll: i am in a world of shit. but i am alive.
went to boston the other day. matched 2 more faces to nicks. i wonder if i would enjoy living in boston more than i enjoy living in worcester. of course i would. why am i constantly steering myself into suboptimal situations?
it's snowing. the kick is good. the patriots win.
the spaceghost intro is weird. who's running? you are.
i have a hit song about a knife, and yes: i'm married.
oh no, not another test.
we meet, we go to wendys. thats it.
it's not snowing. the kick is blocked. that patriots win.

i go to wpi. it is a weird place sometimes. today illustrates that fact. i will present it to you in three vignettes.
so, break is winding down. what did i do?
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);
int x = Integer.decode (string).intValue();
i _hope_ i'm doing it the wrong way.
