getting a new SIM card for my old cellphone is $50. ouch. guess i'll give in. i want a phone for austin.

bought a wrist brace. hard to type. no type + no cellphone = little communication = ... weird.

music concert (for class) was kinda boring at parts tonight. and i wasn't feeling too well throughout, so that didn't help.

fixed some computer related things that had been troubling me for awhile. but i won't go into details.

i just went to crawl into bed but discovered i had german homework due tomorrow. write a letter to the president of UW. let's see how much crap i can pull out of my ass:
Liebe Präsidenten von UW,

Ich weiß, daß Sie viele Briefe bekommen werden, so bleibe ich diese Brief kurz. An Ihren Stelle würde ich Schule kündigen, weil sie mir nicht gut gefällt. Vielleicht würden Sie sie wenigstens leicher und kurzer. Oder mehr interessant. Zu oft ist sie mir langsam. Vielleicht ist der Grund, daß ich in der Nähe des Endes bin. Jetzt bin ich müde und muss ins Bett.

- Brad
Dear President of UW,

I know that you'll be getting a lot of letters, so I'll keep this short. In your position, I'd cancel school because I don't like it. Perhaps make it easier and shorter at least. Or more interesting. Too often it's boring. Perhaps the reason is that I'm nearing the end. Now I'm tired and must go to bed.

- Brad
that works.

i really am nearing the end. only 5 days of class left. ever.

night, all.

Yeah, VoiceStream....

How do you just have extras? In any case, I need it by Saturday morning. If you're in Bellingham, I don't think the mail would make it. Unless you overnight it today. I can pay-pal you or otherwise the shipping cost if there's a shipping place that's convenient for you. My address is at http://view.danga.com/

Not a big deal, though ... if you're already at work, don't run home or anything to get it. I can just buy one tomorrow somewhere.

- Brad

I got my phone replaced at costco a couple times and they just took my old phone minus the sim and handed me a whole new box including the sim card. Ill check at lunch and if I can find one I'll send it out overnight.

good news and bad news

Found the sim card, and along with it an unused $50 airtime credit.

unfortunately I arrived at fed ex to see the plane taking off.

so... there are a couple options!

I can send it to portland with saturday delivery

you can come up and have a beer and pick it up!

or you can say "oh bugger" and buy one tomorrow.

sorry, I really did try!

PS its only like an hour drive tops...

I'm in Seattle, not Portland. (?)

I'd be down for an hour car trip with company, but the people I'd propose such a trip to are all 1) offline or 2) unreachable by cellphone since I lost all their numbers.

I should probably work on my LJ paper anyway ... and we finally got heat in our house after a week without it, so I'm kinda likin' this lounging around and being warm thing.

If you'd proposed I drive up there yesterday I would've been in my car already, if only for the heat in my car. :)

If I drove up tomorrow, would that work? I'm hanging out with somebody, but we have no solid plans and she might be down for a trip.

Re:

I figured you were headed to portland on saturday... must have misread. tomorrow works great for me also. just give me a call when you might be coming, my job is pretty lax about free time.

Or I could send it to seattle saturday delivery?

or I could make a nifty necklace and auction it on ebay and retire on the profits?
