somebody named baileywick asked me to update my journal, which i haven't done since July, so here's an update. |
I'm in school now and pretty busy, studying biology and japanese. It's a lot of homework. actually the algebra feels harder then the both of them but only because it's not nearly as interesting. Factoring polynomials just so there are less terms is not very fun, but learning about the theories about why there is a ring of DNA inside of mitochondria is. (Here's a side note: we watched a video about some termites in a lab we did, and the music during the intro was from the Ghibli film "Laputa".
I have a table at stumptown comics fest this weeked. Tim and Stef are driving down and staying with us, and Francois and Co (maybe) are coming up (and also maybe staying with us). He's also selling me one of his gocco printers. No new books, at least nothing new since portland zine symposium, where "m-mole" made a debut. yolanda will be selling delightful cupcake jewelry. noel will be selling some stuff, too.
I'll be dressed as one of the Number 2's from "the prisoner" for halloween.
I'm very excited about the Wii coming out. Yolanda stood in line in the cold for me for 2 hours one wet morning to preorder me one, since i was at work. I also preordered zelda and trauma center (and also warioware but that's been delayed until january, which i am skeptical about. I think it's just a way to get more people to buy third party games over the holidays, and for nintendo to ensure that it sells out in january, and also sells more copies of excite truck.) Just yesterday somebody sold their preordered Wii on ebay for $1,000. I sold ten old snes, n64 and PSX games on ebay and made $500. I got a game boy micro from fred meyer for $50 and it's the best toilet accessory ever, especially with rhythm tengoku in the slot.
Our little mijo is really awful and we want to get rid of him. He picks on lucy all the time. he smells. he eats. he's loud and destructive. He ignores all sorts of discipline. He's sharp. He has bad teeth and worse breath. He's not tiny anymore. everytime we are about to call the shelter he does something cute though, and we feel guilty, so we have the number where it's easy to get to, so we can call during a period of rage, of which there are many. i can hear him doing something right now. OH he also eats anything made of bread left on the counter. He wasn't doing anything wrong just now, just pooping. His poop smells exactly like halitosis.
I found 2 toques at target that i really like. Both are also lined in fleece so they don't itch, which makes them my first non itchy toques. i am happy that brown is popular this fall, but nt soe much when the exact brown paper i needed is sold out, which is what happened this afternoon.
I'm still enjoying portland very much. I am happy to see all the wet leaves all over the street.
That's pretty much what's new with me. I really want a cup of coffee, and we are almost out of firewood, and I need to call somebody about filling our heater with Oil, and I need to sort out my financial aid, and I need new tires and alignment done, and yolanda needs her brakes looked at. she's also been busy with classes.
Ok, i have to get back to work. I have like 6 pages of japanese workbook, and math review and about 65 pages of a biology text book to read. First i have to poo and make coffee though. nice talking to you.
