SOTW: Fire Door

Song of the Week: Fire Door by Ani DiFranco

Losing It

I've been so busy it's hard to wrap my head around everything. I went to sleep last night at 8pm and woke up at 2pm, a sure sign my body is not getting the rest I deserve. But there's a lot I need to update on:

I'm writing a Twilight fanfic called Mary, Full of Grace. Those of you who are twi-hards are probably intrigued and the rest of the world is probably either shaking their head or have no idea what I'm talking about. It's alright, I think only fans will get the story. I'll be posting teasers on here eventually.

I got a molar removed, a process which was frightening, painful, and slightly embarrassing. I don't think I can ever look at my dentist in the face again. At least I was assured no one in the waiting room heard my cursing and screaming. The stitches are already out and the mouth feels fine. Funny but fine.

I'm in college. Oh dear lord, I know. I'm currently taking a math class that makes me want to poke my eyes out with the nearest sharp object or maybe my scientific calculator for the interesting visuals. The headlines will read "Math Killed Her" and it'll be the only good thing out of the whole ordeal. Honours Literature and Composition should be better.

Work is going well. It's work, obviously, but I love my job and I love my coworkers and my friends.

I got Rock Band II and I am kickass. If anyone plays and wants to rock out online, let me know.

I think that's all for now.

SOTW: Walk Like An Egyptian

Song of the Week: Walk Like An Egyptian by The Bangles

The Venom

Let me start off by saying I love wi-fi. I adore wi-fi. I think it's the greatest thing since Susanna Hoffs did that sweet eye thing in the Walk Like An Egyptian video (SOTW, btw). The best part of Wifi is seeing the names assigned. Someone of them are boring. ITT's wi-fi is called ITT campus, for example. Not very creative. Sometimes I'll come across a few like "Sally's internet" or "Mike's wifi". The best, however, comes from right next door where one of my neighbours operate online as...The Venom.

Now, if you met my neighbours, you'd understand why this tickled me so. Neighbour #1 is a young father who plants individual grass blades and goes to medical school. Neighbour #2 is an insurance salesman who think his Bougainvillea is the most beautiful on the block. Despite their modest daytime personalities, I can't help but imagine one of them going into his computer room, turning off all the lights, rolling up his sleeves, and delivering a total beatdown to someone in Guild Wars or maybe WoW. Perhaps he's more of the Crysis type. Either way, game on, Venom. Game on.
