decided to try and get in shape again and go running. i ran down to gasworks and back.... starting light. I really need some running shoes... these year+ old hiking shoes really suck for running (or even walking, for that matter). anyway, the run wasn't that bad... my shins hurt, but that's understandable (shoes, and lack of calcuim). I am back to drinking milk again though, after a little 5 year leave....

I think there's a fixed lower bound on the number of email messages I can have in my inbox... 9. Everytime I've gone to clean my inbox in the past two weeks, the minimum messages I've got down to is 9. However, for people that check my inbox on occasion (you losers! you know who you are....), you'll note that I finally removed that message at the top that had been there since march 1st... yes folks, I finally after almost a year made my six-month check-up appointment with an op·tom·e·trist (pronounciation marks provided for your convenience, and because I just copy/pasted it from dictionary.com). So uh.... now I guess I'm going to bring some forms up to Megan and Dana for our housing application stuff, if Erik gets his slow un·de·ci·sive ass down here anytime soon. Then Eli's off to class and I'm going to watch Rain Man on DVD... never seen it before.

Forgot about a homework assignment that's due tomorrow. Scott had forgot too... I called him and he's like, "Shit." Yup. Couldn't have said it better myself. Listening to the new Eminem album, though... it kicks ass. I could burn it, but I'm going to wait for May 23rd and I'll go out and buy it for my car.... Eminem deserves the money, this is some pretty good shit.

Well, just found out that a handful of the 8 other people I was going to live with next year just backed out. So I guess housing plans are now, once again, up in the air. I'm about to just say "fuck it" and get myself a really nice studio apartment. Some say I'd be lonely. I'm not so sure.... solitude sounds nice. In other news, I just modified the core LiveJournal database table that holds all 66,947 journal entries and growing. In the process I killed the LiveJournal server because I renamed an unused column and deleted another (both of which I guess I was kinda using in the server, but not for anything useful.) But now the database is setup to handle message subjects/headlines, compression (for large posts, I may have the server compress your message first, to save disk space in the future.... I'm going to experiment with this), and also for security --- you'll be able to set who can read your LiveJournal posts: public like it is now, private (just you), users (any valid LiveJournal user, kinda a dumb choice), and custom where you specify what group of people can see it.
