ROTD XIII.V: Everclear Spoke. I Was There
By Dwip October 27, 2000 at 10:33 pm Comments Off on ROTD XIII.V: Everclear Spoke. I Was There RSS Feed for this post

An after-action report from the Everclear/Democratic party rally/concert thing. I knew they were coming, and was going to go. Got to try and take my history midterm through them soundchecking… “Yup. Yup. Yup.” went on for a while. Which of course made me want to get the hell out of class and on over to the MU where they were playing. Unfortunately I got out of there so fast that I got to stand around for an hour. Luckily about half my friends were there, so I got to BS for a while and generally hang out waiting while dodging various people with flyers and things telling me how to vote. It was primarily a Democrat thing, but a bunch […]

ROTD XII: Boredom
By Dwip October 20, 2000 at 10:31 pm Comments Off on ROTD XII: Boredom RSS Feed for this post

And it’s a beautiful day here in Oregon, rain everywhere, my clothes are soaked, and I’m so very very tired. Which of course is the result of my ignoring Marius’ First Rule: Stay up until exhausted, then sleep like you’re dead until you wake up again. Because trying to go to sleep when you aren’t exhausted is dangerous. Because then I start thinking. And the bad thing about thought is, you can’t stop it very easy once you start. So from my somewhat bizarre late night ponders, I bring you the next installment of Marius’ Rant of the Day. Today’s topic? Friends. They’re good things of course, but. You see, I’m sitting here with this book behind me. In specific, […]

ROTD XI: Ain’t It the Life
By Dwip October 17, 2000 at 10:30 pm Comments Off on ROTD XI: Ain’t It the Life RSS Feed for this post

It was time for another one, I figured. Let me start by saying that I hate being tired. I’m really, well, tired of it. Possibly because of the fact that over the summer I got into the habit of sleeping during the day and staying up all night. Which my parents absolutely hated, thus forcing me to try and change it around. All summer. Bleh. Here, of course, it’s because of my IDIOT HEATER that starts going crashrattlebangsmashclangpingpingping at odd times during the night, thus forcing me to wake up for half an hour at a time each time. Raarg. Compounding the problem is the fact that I live on the 5th floor of Callahan Hall. The elevator sucks, so […]

ROTD X: You Know It’s Monday When…
By Dwip October 7, 2000 at 10:29 pm Comments Off on ROTD X: You Know It’s Monday When… RSS Feed for this post

RoTD X, I suppose. Am I up to 10 already? Eek. You know it’s Monday when… 1. Due to insomnia, you get to sleep at around 4:30am, and you have to be up at 9:20am to go to class. 2. The phone you borrowed because yours sucks gets a low battery warning and starts beeping once a minute, and because you’ve never had it happen before, you spend 15 minutes looking for the thing and plugging it in, ending the problem. This causes the loss of another hour of sleep. 3. Soon after, random loud people in cars start driving around, which you can hear even though the window is shut. Looking at the clock, it’s 2 hours before you […]

ROTD IX: Corvallis Weekends
By Dwip October 5, 2000 at 10:26 pm Comments Off on ROTD IX: Corvallis Weekends RSS Feed for this post

Alternately known as How to Have Fun on the Weekends in Corvallis. Or how not to, I suppose. It’s dead around here. We have a total of 3 theater…whoops, make that 2. They just closed the cheap re-run theater, so we’re left with two, one of which is pretty crappy. What’s that leave to do on the weekends? Well, there’s always homework, but cmon, besides my fanatic engineering major friend, who does homework on Friday night? Parties? Hordes of drunk people and horribly loud horrible music don’t appeal to me (minus one or the other depending on some parties). We are now left with one last option: Watch movies at home. Which is actually a pretty good idea, considering the […]

ROTD VII: Randomness
By Dwip October 1, 2000 at 10:23 pm Comments Off on ROTD VII: Randomness RSS Feed for this post

This is probably a bit too early and close to the other ones, but hey. It sort of seemed appropriate, given the events of the day. Notably, I have discovered something. If you do 7 straight hours of homework, your mind burns out at some point. Isn’t that an amazing thing? Went from math straight to history, then on to more of the same history, then on to MORE history, then I realized that as cool as it was, I was VERY tired of reading about what dead people did. Then I decided to play BG2. I decided to play BG2 for about 5 hours, with a dinky break in the middle so I could fake dinner. I love this […]
