Smelly incense and repetitive 30-second loops of music do NOT make for a fine ambience! / Poetry and chemistry / Quizzes

October 31, 2004

Managed to help two people before I even left the house today.. that must be some kind of record! *laugh* I met my friend Tim’s parents this morning, then a bunch of us were talking to Karen about her computer problems until it was time for Sunday School. After that, it was time to go […]

Early mornings

October 31, 2004

Managed to get up before my alarm, and have already helped two people before leaving the house to go to church.. woohoo! 😀 My friend Candy wanted to know if I could get to this link because it wasn’t working from the Q forum.. I could, indeed. Dunno why it isn’t working for her…. Someone […]

I wonder how many decibels a fire alarm is… / Homestar Halloween 2004

October 30, 2004

The fire alarm went off a while ago in the apartment building.. luckily, I’d finished taking a shower already and was on the phone to my mom hashing out plans for tomorrow. In case you wonder why I’m blogging when the fire alarm’s been going for a good 15 minutes, it’s a false alarm made […]

Crazy Band Names

October 30, 2004

You’re losing me to PehPai’s Silver Levels, specifically Board 8.. I’ve played that thing more than 100 times, and STILL can’t get past it to Board 9! (which seems a tad easier, but appearances can be really deceiving) They need to give you plenty more cards on Board 8 or something…. argh! I swear it’s […]

Witches Brew / Quizzes

October 29, 2004

Squeaking in just under the wire for a daily post: I didn’t feel like going out tonight since I wasn’t prepared enough, but went anyhow.. it’s time spent learning with friends, after all. 😉 Eric and I discussed many things: my random weird thoughts, the “Mystery Boy” call, the Memphis Grizzlies recent complete logo change, […]

Candy’s mix rock CD and truck songs tape

October 28, 2004

I was just looking at the stuff Candy gave me in April: * calculator, pens, CD cases, and an organizer * Ministry’s The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste * Ministry’s Psalm 69 * Nickelback’s The Long Road * Yasunori Mitsuda’s Creid: Millennial Fair * the Marble Index’s self-titled CD * a mix rock […]

ZapSpot / online game recommendations?

October 28, 2004

I was looking for some game nostalgia, so I went to Zapspot to download their games that I’d played four years ago. Unfortunately, every time I tried to run a game after I’d downloaded it, Spybot Search & Destroy told me that it had encountered and terminated multiple processes that were listed as part of […]

Girls Night Out

October 27, 2004

Linda, Sophia, Irene, Frances, and Helen came over.. they were kinda hungry by that time, but at least everything was ready by 8. My chicken soup was soothing and filling, the veggie samosas Sophia bought were spicy, the salad Frances made was good for vegetable intake, the appetizers Linda bought were good, and the pie […]

Major soup bowl discount, getting a zloty in my change

October 27, 2004

I am…. back from buying up the stuff I needed. Got four serving soup bowls at a MAJOR discount: they were originally $19.99 each, but were on sale for $4.99 each! (I didn’t even know this sale was going on!) Went to a Chinese place for some hot and sour soup, and received a zloty […]

Email / NOT impressed with the transit "service" around here!

October 26, 2004

This afternoon, I receive an email from Helen indicating that Linda will be coming tomorrow night. That makes eight people here including myself.. that wouldn’t be a problem, except I only have seven soup bowls and possibly not enough soup to serve them all. So I look through the box of assorted houseware in my […]
