Stoopid midterms, thai food, and a homeless kid. [Apr. 26th, 2001|10:11 pm]

I had a midterm today in Music ... piece of cake. I love music.
I have a midterm tomorrow in AI ... I'm less than prepared.
I have two midterms Monday, in Classics and History, both involving tons of essay writing.

Not happy.

Monday evening I anticipate that I'll be very happy.

The only good thing about today is that LJ is fast again ... and forever, most likely. Our software load balancing is working like a charm, and we have hardware load balancers on the way. The directory search is coming back again soon, too. We have the new harddrives for it in Kenny, but haven't yet set stuff up. Ask me about when it'll be back and I'll fucking maim you. Seriously. :-) Welcome to my personal journal. Go bug the official channels ... like the support page or something. They'd give you the same answer anyway, "when it's ready".

Okay, now that I'm done with my LJ user rant, back to personal stuff.....

Went shopping today and got $100 of groceries, including all the necessary ingredients to make Chicken Phad Thai ... Mmmmm. So damn good. Blythe and I are Thai cookin' masters now.

Watched Survivor ... bye Elizabeth! Eli's out $5. Only Scott (with Tina) and me (with Colby) remain ... $25 to the winner. Blythe had Nick ... he's been gone forever. Kenji ... I forget who he had. Heheh.... all your $5 are belong to us, bitches.

I hung out with a homeless kid on the Ave this morning ... pretty cool guy. He offered to watch my bike for me so I didn't have to lock it up. I opted to lock it up, but then we got into a discussion about the best place to get food on the ave ... most places were still closed at 9:00 this morning. He said, "you're getting food, take me!" He was so energetic and funny that I said, "sure." So he goes, "let's go to pizza brava! I'll race you!" So he sprints down the street from taco bell (a good 3 or 4 blocks up) and he's racing across 45th without waiting for the walk sign. He's making good progress and I think he's going to win, but the bike prevails and I beat him there by mere seconds. Unfortunately, they were closed even though their sign said open. He jumped in through the window and asked when they were going to open ... 20 minutes. He really wanted food, but I had to get to class and BS my homework.

Okay, long enough entry... time to go shower and study for AI.

Intelligent? I don't know what Ave Rats YOU'VE been hanging out with, but the ones I've encountered all seem hell-bent on being as belligerent as possible. As if startling pedestrians is going to make up for their meager lifestyles. I don't know. I sympathize with homeless people completely, but I don't sympathize with immaturity and stupidity. That's my stance.

Did you know that 90% of homeless people are willing to provide the service of oral sex for a meal?

No? Well that's ok. I just made up that statistic. But it probably isn't far off! Next time demand head. Hold the pizza over the individual's head and grunt "Alllmooosssttt dooonnneeee..." That'll really get 'em worked up. :P

What a good samaritian

Homeless people are awesome. I was in New Orleans due to an extended visit after my band played a show there and this homeless guy asked me for a ride.. so I was just like "fuck it" and let him get in. The best part about it is that he was flamingly homosexual. Anyhow, I proceed down the street to the next redlight (in the middle of the damn city) and what do ya know, another guy asks me for a ride, I guess because he saw me give the homo one too. He was this fat guy. So I said sure man whatever.. get in. Anyway, I was talkin to the fat guy and it turns out he's a cook at some italian restruant and used to sing opera.

So to sum it up, its me, a blatantly gay guy, and a fat guy in a little corolla with the windows rolled down singing opera together and now I can get free pizza sometimes in New Orleans.

There was no point to that story. You're just a victim of my inebriated boredom.
