Denial, Revisited

I did it all for the cookie, the cookie. To slightly misquote the Limp Bizkit song. Because monster cookies really do rule that much.

So, here we are. It’s the second week of classes. My homework for Thursday was supposed to be two whole books, 500 or 600 pages. And that’s the stuff that’s absolutely required. The other “you won’t flunk but you’ll miss out on life” reading is another couple three hundred pages. There’s also a couple of misc. paper proposals and such as that floating around. If you don’t see me posting much, that’s why.

Fortunately, the one book discussion has been pushed back until Tuesday. Rock on.

Monday night sucked a lot. I mean, the day was cool – went home, saw the parents, got fed, did laundry – the high points of college existance, in other words. On the way back, though, it started raining. Hard. And my wipers are going out again, so I almost went off the road. That sucked. Walking to class in it sucked, too. Almost getting whacked by a car in it sucked. Sitting for 3 hours in my sauna-like class sucked too.

OTOH, my night was made all better by the existance at Boardwalk of curly fries and my partaking of such. Also, this bit of conversation as I was going up the stairs:

Guy: “DUDE! Where did you get those?”

Me: “Oh, Boardwalk sells ’em.”

Guy: “Rule. How late are they open?”

Me: “Oh, 11.”

Guy: “Thanks, dude.”

And today largely sucked because I keep getting no sleep. Which makes class suck the good suck, to borrow a phrase.

Also, I’m sort of faintly unhappy with my life again, in a sort of, well, faint way. I’m bloody well tired of being overworked, but, well, there’s not much what I can do about that, so I deal. OTOH, life is apparently going to be a lot of going to class, or on days I’m not in class, sitting around doing work. I would dearly love to meet some of the people on my floor, as I’m sure they’re cool people. I’d dearly love to find a girlfriend. But I simply don’t bloody well have the time, and that’s annoying.

OTOH, I’m at least getting out on occasion. Wednesdays to the shop, Sundays to the shop and to Rema’s for the weekly D&D game. Mondays to home. Hopefully Tali and Laurent will start being free on Fridays so we can do stuff. Othern that, it’s hello room. Life as a college student is much fun, eh?

On a totally different note, for my break tonight I went blog surfing. It’s sort of depressing how much more informed many people are on issues that I consider myself informed on – politics, for one, foreign policy for another. Depressing, because I know that I’m much more well-versed than most of our population, and these people leave me in their dust. Ah well.

Oh, and for something completely different, it would appear that Strippers have blogs these days. Well written ones, even, with plenty of humor. Parental warning, of course.

I got there, incidentally, though rec.arts.sf.written.robert-jordan, we note. No joke. They have great political discussions, too. Very educated, verbose lot over there.

On a totally removed from that note, the Battletech section of my site has real live actual content on it. Not that most of you care, but there it is. Our MWDA campaign rules, as well as assorted designs by me and my own personal unit. First time I’ve had a BT site in about 5 years, as I recall. Also on that note, I finally got my copy of LosTech, which hopefully means we will be playing some Mechwarrior RPG soon. Stay tuned.

(same rabbit-time, same rabbit-channel, perhaps?)

[Edit] And a transcendental BT moment, while I’m thinking about it. Repeatedly listening to A Perfect Circle’s The Noose while reading the House Liao sourcebook. In particular, Elias Jung’s interesting brand of politico-religious terrorism set to that song. And in case I haven’t mentioned it, the whole of Thirteenth Step is enormously good. A Perfect Circle rules. Takes a bit of getting used to, but well worth the buy. RIAA or no. [/edit]

We’ll all remember my take on socializing. And probably everyone else’s take on my take, but…

Our weekly DnD has turned into weekly Vampire: The Masquerade which involves a lot more roleplaying and a lot less dice throwing. I enjoy it.

Thirteenth Step is one of those albums that I can listen to and think I’m sick of it, and about halfway through what I replace it with, I want to listen to it again. Let it not be said that Maynard writes poor lyrics. The Noose is really good, but Pet has more urgency and maybe a little bit more relevance for me. The Package pretty well takes form from my social life. And the chorus for The Outsider hits hard.

Okay, I’m spent.

Are you still glad you get your work and not mine? ;)

Yup. I’d be even more lost with some of your work.

Besides, what do you need a girlfriend for? All they ever do is break hearts. Girls, feh!

I disagree with Whir, but I’m too lazy to type up an argument, so I’ll leave it just like that if you folks don’t mind. =D
