blythe and chuck came over earlier .... watched "The Ref". eli fell asleep. chuck just left. getting kinda tired. UW's network hasn't been working well these last few hours .... kinda annoying. Oh yeah, check out the newly redone LiveJournal statistics page....
going to bed. think i'll get 6 hours of sleep tonight which I'm very looking forward to... beats the 4 hours I got last night.
awake. eli's alseep in the beanbag. he must've gone to class and come back while I was still sleeping. skipping all my classes today ... nothing important.
guess i'm going to the CS lab now to help Brian on his part of the OS project (or at least watch him do it) .... nothing else to do ....
been watching old southpark episodes I've missed off of Evan's computer.
story time: We rented that movie from Kozmo.com the other day, so I had to go return it.... one of the drop places is a coffee shop on campus, so I rode my bike up to north campus to meet Eli (he was hanging out with Dana and Megan), and on the way up I thought it'd be cool to ride my bike up the two sets of stairs in the Quad ... I'd done it before, so I knew it was possible, even though it was a little wet and slippery out. (No, I didn't crash.) There were, however, a bunch of people going up and down the steps ... so I figured, why not? I did it perfectly, but I hit the first flight going a little two fast, and the back tire of my bike kinda hit pretty hard (no suspension in the rear) ... I made it to the top, then rode to McMahon where I noticed my ride was getting kinda squishy .. fuck! another flat tire... this is the sixth time this year I've got a flat back tire. So Eli and I walked to return the movie and then walked down to the bike store and got a new super-strong-pop-resistant tire..... hopefully that'll help. Good story, eh? :-P
Going to Costco w/ Blythe ... I need some socks. In other news, a volunteer for FreeVote is working on updating/completing the site translations for Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, German, and French... yes, one person. He's already done the Italian completely. This guy is amazing.
bought socks. now my feet won't start to stink like eli. :-) going down to make fajitas w/ blythe. Mmmm.
I'm down at Blythe's now, taking a break from cooking. She made me cut the onions for the fajitas and I thought, "Shit, this is easy enough, and I get to play with a knife, right?" Well, it didn't turn out to be as easy as I'd thought.... my eyes are fucking burning. 20 years old and never cut onions before.... pretty pathetic. I'm gonna go back and have another shot at it now. Wish me luck.
going up to scott's room to work on the OS project some more.... we've been making great progress the last few days.
My roommate Eli is the shit..... he put on the new industrial-strength bike tire tube I bought earlier and he's been tuning my bike for the last few hours ... fixing the seat, brakes, cleaning it, fixing my bike-lock mount, tightening things.... it's crazy. It's like I got my own personal mechanic.... I gave him a new pair of socks from my 12-pack as a reward. Maybe I should give him another pair. :-)
