I could post about a lot of stuff right now. However, I think I will just leave you with one of my favorite youtube videos from the past year. I don't know why but it cracks me up

Frack you SFU

Step 1. Build a campus on top of a hill.
Step 2. Add snow and ice and poor planning.
Step 3. Unleash hell.

Holy crap that was a nightmare. It took me an hour and half no scratch that two hours to get home tonight from campus. In fact I wouldn't have gotten home at all if it wasn't for the kindness of some strangers, who turned out to be some pretty cool people.
Basically at 5:30 they tell us that the buses have been closed down due to bad road conditions. My first offer for a ride home came from a person in my class which was cancelled. However her car is forever jammed in that lot. So she decided to stay up on campus. Then I waited down by the buses while trying to figure out what to do. Two girls started asking drivers for rides. They were refused twice by EMPTY VANS (assholes). Then I joined them in trying to procure a ride, finally someone stopped. who happened to be going to coquitlam and we hoped in. After taking an hour and half to get down the fracking hill. With one side swiped bus, 8 cars in ditches and about 12 other abandoned cars we finally got out. Dropped the girls off at the lougheed skytrain. One apparently is in my class, the second was her biology prof. And the driver and I seemed to know a few people being both from port coquitlam. On the way into poco we had to push an old lady's car well we didn't have to but did it anyway. I couldn't let another person be stuck tonight. Even further into poco the poor dude lost his front bumper, we both tried to reattach it before throwing it in the back seat. The rest of the way went smoother...thankfully. So yeah that was my fun time tonight. On the plus side at least now I know someone in my education class. And at least I didn't have to endure a four hour Canadian lit course. So some good came out of this hell.

Today I was a little pissed that I was going to miss another Lugs poker night. I still want to go to the casino so if that is ever on and anyone reads this let me know. Anyway today while on break at work I decided to buy a scratch ticket for $2.00. I came away with 25.00 from that. So yeah, happy. This is probably the most I've won on one ticket, so I think it makes up for the poker. A little.
Also I've taken up to playing racquetball again. Mainly because I'm tired of being lazy and it gives me something to do on the weekends. Also i don't suck at it. However if anyone is interested in playing some racquetball during the week, either in poco at sfu let me know and I'll book us a court time. This is the second week in a row I've done racquetball and the rust is starting to wear off a bit...but i still need some work.
Finally I'd also like to try and go to a decent karaoke place at some point. Hopefully before Richard leaves, maybe this Friday or something even Thursday could work. Anyone who is interested contact me. Laters....

New Comp...

So I just set up my New Comp today. So far so good. Installed most of the hardware, downloaded the latest messenger crap. Now comes the boring and pointless process of transferring everything from the old to the new...though I might just say to hell with that. And keep it all on the old. Its nice to now have a) no viruses b) massive amounts of memory c) in accordance to a) a virus protection that actually works. Still trying to get used to this new keyboard and mouse set up though. I'm sure it'll get worked around. Anyway I'm going to do some much needed reading and watch some much needed Battlestar.

No more rum.

Well I know I've said this before, but I don't plan on drinking for awhile. The Drought will probably only last up till my birthday. As someone who usually never gets hangovers (unless tequila is involved) this one was a bit of...well it was something . 1. Now I don't think I would have had this problem had a mickey been bought as requested instead of what was actually purchased. 2. I also regret that it has been documented and I hope those videos and pictures never see the light of day outside of that memory card. Although I do kinda want to see them. In all honesty though, the night wasn't all bad, it may have been stupid, but it was fun stupid. The bad was just trying to get up in the drunkin fun.
