Lake Internet Questions
Well, I think I’ve figured out what I’m going to do at the Lake for internet. Direcway is looking pretty good. 15 month commitment, but hell, I’ll be here for atleast 4 years… 😉
Plus, it will be a lot easier to stay in contact with my friends at home and around the country with IMs flowing freely, as well as email. Can’t loose my rep. as being a quick email answerer.
Weekster replied to my comment about Scsi staring me down earlier today. I swear, that pig has a perpetually scared look on its face. I could be bringing it a plate of goodies (ha… like I’d do that… pig’s lucky if she gets a piece of lettuce from me every so often – as an obese person myself, I fell it necessary to prevent guinea pig obesity) or weilding a large axe at that guinea pig and she’d still have the same look on her face… scared. Pixel, on the other hand, just doesn’t give me the time of day (most likely because it lacks a watch… ) anyway, Pixel (or more apt… Megapixel (couldn’t stop obesity from that one)) just gives me these looks like “Who are you and what are you doing near my hou
se?”. Feel like a damn stalker around that pig. Doesn’t help Pixel’s sister has that weird scared look next door. Pixel probably thinks I’m the kind of person who’d break a ming vase over an enemies head for fun (well… so what if its an accurate description?) just by Scuz’s expressions.
Had a strange dream last night about hamsters. I had this hamster sleeping on my stomach as I was sleeping. Lucky thing it was a dream considering i sleep under high-held covers and on my stomach. In real life, that hamster would be suffocated and squished. Karey says its a subconcious desire to have a “new hammy” as she put it. I asked her when she went into dream interpretations. After all, I’m the one with the damn B.A. in psychology. Fat lot of good its doing me in the dream interpretation and guinea pig relations departments.
It did do me a lot of good while noon-aiding on Friday though. I think the other noon-aides mistook my letting the first graders speak their minds to me for inexperience with kids. Truth is, I love it when a first grader shares their thoughts with me. Not just on an academic level (although I could find zillions of things to study first graders for… their encoding and retention is simply amazing!). Kids really do have the most interesting things to say.
I’m laying here listening to Elton John. Sir Elton John mind you – Anyone know
why a person from England would write a song named Philadelphia Freedom? Shouldn’t it be something like “Pinner Freedom” since he was born in that area of Greater London? And the line “From the day that I was born I’ve waved the flag” coming from a guy who’s country favored sticking my country with a bill for a war they started (ok, so we were still colonies in 1764) and then a mere few years later torched our presidential mansion (i.e. 1814 or so…) just sounds ironic to me. Not that I have anything against the British now… after all, without them, I wouldn’t have this language. Besides, I doubt Sir Elton has had many coherent thoughts since “the day” he was born, March 25, 1947.
But I guess a guy who was born with the name Reginald Kenneth Dwight can pretty much say whatever he wants.
Well, that’s about all for me tonight. I suppose I’ll head to sleep soon, maybe I’ll be able to last until Karey gets out of work 😉
