Never the Answering Machine Forever
By Dwip August 31, 2006 at 12:23 pm Comments Off on Never the Answering Machine Forever RSS Feed for this post

I assure you, dear reader, that it is far easier to get somewhere to live when you call people and do not get an answering machine, as opposed to getting said machine. Which since every call I have made so far except one, and I have made several calls, has gone straight to the machine, and the one that DID go through got me a “We, uh, don’t have that property, sorry” response, you can imagine how well finding a place to live is going. Still got one class. Hopefully will get a call tomorrow and a showing on Saturday or Sunday. It’s about what I’ve got at this rate. Still not having a good time.

Where The Streets Have No Name

So, that whole trip thing… 8/21 – Monroe, OR to Coeur D’Alene, ID (484 miles) Map Got started at a ludicrously early hour, an hour not seen since…about a month beforehand when I was working. Oi. Our listening for the morning was the BBC Lord of the Rings radio play, which if you haven’t heard it, you need to get your hands on a copy. I’ve read the books, I’ve seen the movies, and the radio version is still my favorite. I’ll spare you the details of the drive up to Portland, because frankly the drive isn’t particularly exciting, and most of you have driven it. I will, however, say that it’s an entirely odd feeling driving through somewhere familiar, […]

Down In It
By Dwip August 29, 2006 at 7:59 pm Comments (2) RSS Feed for this post

Well, I’m here. I’ll put up a big post on my trip at some point when I have the time and energy, but suffice it to say it was a worthwhile experience, and way cooler than I would have thought previously, except for the ass cramps. On the other hand, New Haven’s kinda sucking, for a whole lot of reasons. Yesterday was sheer fun, as I pulled into town, immediately got lost for a couple of hours trying to find places, get to campus, get lost on campus, go back out looking for a supposedly easy to find hotel, get lost more, come back to campus, go to orientation, go out, find the first hotel I can (the Marriott at […]

Am in Iron Mountain at Whir’s. Will be leaving soon. Was much too busy and drunk previously to say anything. Grey Goose is really good, and surprisingly good mixed with Dr. Pepper. Makes you mellow but awake. Have not slept nearly enough. Have killed many bots. Am now become awesome with Hellfires in BF2. Almost died in first D&D fight. Did not. Have had an awesome time. Will talk about rest of trip at later date. Will likely be in CT Monday. I-94 is very long. Caffeine good.

So we played a lot of D&D tonight, and that was fun, but really the night was much enlivened by the addition of a lot of alcohol. And yes Jason, we’re looking at you and that fifth of whiskey you put down. Because, as I was telling Whir, it was like this: [00:15] Dwip: We got Gorm fucking wasted tonight, too. [00:15] Dwip: Evan Williams and Cherry Coke do not mix, by the by. [00:15] Whir: What the hell is Evan Williams? [00:15] Dwip: Whiskey. [00:16] Whir: Never heard of it. Must be an Oregonian thing. [00:16] Dwip: Apparently not. [00:17] Dwip: But yeah, Gorm got a fifth of it, and chugged most of it. [00:17] Whir: Wow. [00:17] Dwip: […]

[21:02] Dwip: Yeah, if you guys killed this ENTIRE dungeon, I’d be impressed. [21:03] Clyos: Talos has decreed it possible [21:04] Dwip: Is that so. [21:04] Clyos: i know that he wants me to show the world his magnificent power [21:05] Dwip: Does he now. [21:06] Clyos: yeah, he likes stuff to die via lighting [21:07] Dwip: That’s the rumor, anyway. [21:09] Clyos: well, the minute he stops likeing it, i’m sure he’ll come down and say something like “What’s up my halfling brotha? About this whole “i kill you in the name of talos with his holy vengence” and killing them with lightning… well that’s not doing it for me anymore…. I really would prefer it if you would […]

So I guess I sold out and got a cell phone. Which, in much the same way as Monroe getting a stop light after all these years, makes me somewhat less awesome and cooler than the hip in crowd than I once was. This is tragic. The shopping went pretty much like this: Mom and I: So, Cingular people. We have no idea what anything does, so how about explaining while trying to sell us a plan. Cingular: Sounds good. Basically, we’re really awesome. Also we know what we’re talking about. And if you should want to get started with us, our store’s over here. Us: Good deal. However, we must talk to Verizon first, just to be fair. Verizon: […]
