Well, I’m less proud of the death camp paper, but honestly at this point I could care less. It’s over, done with, and I have only one more paper to go this weekend.

In the Land of the Paperless…
By Dwip May 30, 2003 at 1:53 am Comments Off on In the Land of the Paperless… RSS Feed for this post

The man who was finished one of his papers is king. Or something. The important thing here is that I finished my Magruder textbook paper. I’m sort of proud of it, except where I’m not. I’m not sure how well it passes on the essence of the whole thing in 5 pages, but whatever. It will all make sense in the end. Now I get to write one on Soviet prison camps in the 1930s. That’ll be exciting. Also, I offer up a website, and a quote. The website And the quote, in reference to the book that’s based on the website, or something. “It also doesn’t really end, so much as it jerks abruptly to a halt like an […]

*air guitar riff* HST 421 paper due date moved from Friday to Monday. Also, I have my makeup exam for that class that same Monday. Life now owns. Life will own much more right after the nap I will now be taking. “Put them…in the iron maiden.” “Iron Maiden!? Excellent!” “EXECUTE THEM!” “Bogus!”

The hangover part of the week: Thursday: Conference on the paper that’s due in two weeks. I need to have a bibliography and maybe an outline together by then. Also a group meeting for my presentation next Thursday. Friday: This’ll be fun. 5-6 page Archives research paper due in HST 310. 5 page paper on the gulags due in HST 415. 10 page paper on Xenophon’s Anabasis due in HST 421. I urge you all to remember that while I’ve done most of my archives research, I have yet to touch the books for either of the other two papers. Next Tuesday: 3 articles with reports due for Anth. Next Thursday: Archives research presentation due in HST 310. 2 Mondays […]

In the Evening
By Dwip May 26, 2003 at 10:16 pm Comments Off on In the Evening RSS Feed for this post

In the eeeeeeeevning… *loud drums/guitar* Or something. So on the plus side of this last week, Wednesday I played some great MW:DA. Thursday I saw Matrix: Reloaded (can’t find my copy of the original – how annoying). Friday I went out with Tali and Laura, had ice cream, played cards, enjoyed the weather. Saturday I went out with Tali and Laura, threw a frisbee around for a while, enjoyed the weather, ate some good pizza, and watched a really bad 60’s horror flick. Good times. And today I got fed. Yay.

Oh So Tired
By Dwip May 26, 2003 at 2:51 am Comments Off on Oh So Tired RSS Feed for this post

The dangerous thing about books, and I mean the good ones here, the really good ones, is that they make you think. Worse than that, they make you FEEL. End of a really good book, you sort of put it down, and you get kind of sad, and you kinda dwell on it a bit, dwell on yourself, that sort of thing. And then you go to bed, and you wake up, and nothing’s changed in your life, and it’s all back to the same old thing. Yeah. Guess who’s been reading way too much today? The worst part of it is, it left me with a realization that I am very very tired of my life at the moment. […]

Did, in fact, see Matrix: Reloaded last night. I shall simply say that my speculations on whatever the hell is going on are going to wait until the third movie has been seen. Until then, I can always listen to the blather on rasfwrj about it. Movie kicked ass, though, even if I have no idea where it’s going. The very long fight scenes were maybe a bit too long, though there is a certain part where I was thinking that, and Neo grabbed a pole, and I went “Nah…” And I’ll make the comment that everyone has been making, that, Neo, Trinity, couple others are like, the token white guys in the film. We can but speculate on the […]

Let’s see. Whir wants a blog update. What’s been happening. Still going out of my mind doing papers and shit for classes. STILL haven’t taken my Greece midterm ’cause the prof’s been out for some reason. Did my “redesign the history board” project this morning and turned it in. Will do my second archives visit tomorrow, then write the paper. Then somehow I will get together four books on one of: Diocletian, Constantine, the entire Fall of the Roman Empire, or something wildly out there. THEN I will read Xenophon’s Anabasis and write THAT paper. THEN I will write the paper on the Diocletian thing. I think I forgot a paper or test or something in there. Whatever. I just […]

With some form of apologies attached, I offer two quotes: “Jesus saves, and and takes half damage.” “Jesus saves, roll for initiative.” It’s a D&D thing.

Working Pages!

Until a really weird CSS error shut me down, I was doing some good work on getting my webpage back in the running… All the links should at least partially work now. The D&D and BT sections such as they are are now up, the Writings section has at least a working front, and the About section is fixed up a bit. More to come.

Well, the cold is getting worse and worse, and I skipped class to sleep through the damn thing, which sort of worked. Going through fluids like mad. You’d think I was actually sick or something. On the plus side, I’ve finally figured out an acceptable workaround to the image border problem I was having and which was preventing me from doing more site work. It’s not the one I wanted, but might well turn out to be better in the end. We’ll see. And I’m all but finished with Epic 27, Epic 28 opened today and looks like it’ll be a blast, and I just finished a solo game with the Vikings whereupon I got stuck in the most ass […]

Fine, I’ll post something, Whir. Happy now? Sick. Picked up a cold from somewhere, and it’s miserable. I fucking hate being sick. And the bell tower on campus randomly screwed up and went off constantly for like 8 hours straight all night, so I got no sleep. Very annoyed. With my luck, my Greece midterm will be tomorrow and I’ll be screwed utterly.

It’s A Small World After All…

So about a week ago, I’m poking around over at RBCiv, and I notice a random non-there link. So I whip out ye olde email proggy, fire off an email to Griselda over there. Yeah, you’re sort of missing a link, and oh by the way I changed my website addy, so a bunch of my links are broken. Next thing I know, I get one back to the effect of “Say, noticed you live in Corvallis. Well, so do I. We should get together sometime.” It’s a six inch world, some days. So to make a long story short, we do on Tuesday, and there’s much talking about Civ, D&D, school, you name it. Good times. What’s more, I […]

You say ‘”You sorry ass piece of shit! why the hell couldn’t you crash an hour ago? Or 2 hours? Or even 5 minutes from now! NO! You had to do it in the middle of a LONG post to my forums that I was 30 seconds away from completing! I’m NOT HAPPY! ( apologies, I needed to vent )”‘ Whir snickers softly.
