    • HOME!

      After an exhausting and frustrating day of traveling yesterday--in which I was rebooked to a different airline, went through security twice, walked across the entirety of San Francisco International Airport, dealt with numerous delays, and ran to an impossibly close connecting flight--I am finally home for Thanksgiving break! ^__________________________^

      Hopefully I can say the same for my luggage soon. smiley4.gif

    • Insomnia Pays Off

      Just as I was getting ready to go to bed Wednesday night, I got an email asking if anyone in the dorm was interested in going out to see the Leonids meteor shower. 1:45 am on a school night, but how could I pass up spontaneous meteor-watching? =D A few of us met up in the lobby and went outside...only to be met by a blanket of clouds. After a few people went "aw, screw it" and shuffled back inside, one of the students who lived in the area said "I think I know these clouds; they're very low and roll in from the bay at night."

      "Yeah, and?"

      "And if I'm right, we can get above them."

      O__O

      The handful of us who were left piled into his car and drove up into the hills. Sure enough, we got above the clouds, went a bit farther along the tortuous road, and pulled over at the nearest clearing. Below us Silicon Valley twinkled between gaps of cloud...above us a crapton of stars twinkled. We waited for the moon to go down and spent the next hour or so pointing out meteors, satellites, constellations, getting scared by owls (it sounded like a coyote, I swear!), freezing our butts off, and otherwise having a great time. =D

      Then last night I went to the midnight premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, which I won't say anything about until after opening weekend at least...partly because I don't want to color anyone's opinion, but mostly because this journal is getting long and I'm lazy =P

      So, Wednesday night, Thursday night, and the fact that I have to get up at 6 tomorrow to travel home mean that I will be able to spend most of the time in my flights sleeping. ^___^ Off I go again...

      But before I leave, a final thought:

    • AGH

      Six hours of research, two problem sets, an art project, a lab, and two midterms this week.

      Note to self: lighter course load next quarter.

      And by that, I mean take a lighter to the course load. smiley4.gif

    • Feeling Good

      I have just been having an amazing few days. And I have a family who loves me, friends who care about me, and I think I'm getting to the point where I can love myself for who I am, not who I feel like others want me to be.

      It's awesome. ^___________^

      Birds flying high, you know how I feel... Sun in the sky, you know how I feel...

      ...why I began avoiding Facebook...

      ...because even after you block FarmVille and Mafia Wars and all their illegitimate offspring, you still get ridiculous spam like this:
      Note: I did not use this app. One of my friends did, and the app used their account to send out spam.

      No, I can't say it.

      I went sailing a week ago! And yes, it has taken me until now to post a POIDH journal...

      This is the Lady Washington. Ain't she a beaut? smiley0.gif Floating anachronisms FTW. Some of my dormmates and I (and a bunch of random tourists) went for a three-hour sail on this ship. It had been raining all day...but it stopped right before we boarded, so that was nice.

      DSC00608small.jpg
      Interesting juxtaposition here. Something that can save your life, sitting right next to something else that may kill you in a large, fiery explosion. I'll leave it to you to figure out which is which. =P The powder magazine is used when the Lady Washington does battle simulations with the Hawaiian Chieftain, another old-style ship that does touristy things. One of the cannons they use is near the upper left corner of this pic.

      DSC00624small.jpg
      There were so many people on deck o__o I need to give the crew kudos for putting up with all of us as some people asked ridiculous questions, as other people complained about being cold, and as still other people went OMG SAILS! LOOK AT THE SAILS! WE'RE NOT EVEN USING AN ENGINE! THIS IS AWESOME!

      DSC00636small.jpg
      Yeah, I was one of the people in the last group there.

      DSC00640small.jpg
      We went around Alcatraz Island on our little trip. Got passed by an Alcatraz Clipper ferrying tourists there, but I think our ride was much classier. smiley6.gif

      DSC00644small.jpg
      MOAR SAILS OMG
      The crew actually unfurled all the sails on the ship while we were there, something they said they hadn't had the opportunity to do in a while. Very cool (if slightly terrifying) to watch them all climbing around above us and untying the ropes that were bunching the sails up. I actually don't have a good picture of that part...

      DSC00651small.jpg
      Near the end of the trip, we got to go below deck. This plaque (well, half-plaque) is from the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl where the Lady Washington was used as the HMS Interceptor; it was the only real ship used in the film. Strangely enough, though the Interceptor was touted in the film as being the fastest ship in the British Navy, the Lady Washington isn't all that fast--it's quite wide and thus moves rather slowly through the water.

      And, of course, as with any tourist enterprise (even a not-for-profit like this one was), there was memorabilia for sale at the end. T-shirts, calendars, posters, bricks of tea...

      Bricks
      of TEA, you say?

      DSC00652small.jpg
      YES.

      I got a little brick of compressed green tea. ^__________^ Supposedly this can make a couple hundred cups. BEST. SOUVENIR. EVER.

    • Dream a Little Bigger #2

      8 years ago

      DaftProdigy Tinfoil Hatter

      I had a nightmare last night. I was confronted by a glowing monster that, in a deep and demonic voice, threatened to kill me and feast on my soul. I woke up absolutely terrified.

      However, upon reflection I realized the deep voice was a downpitched version of the Old Spice guy's, and the glowing monster was a CRT television.

      Looks like my subconscious is frightened of TV commercials.

      >________________________<


      Look at your nightmare, now back to me, now back at your nightmare, now BACK to ME...

      Well the AI that's controlling Mr. Balls, is smart enough to heal and switch out pokemon... I remember when they didn't do that. >.>;;;

      P.S. I think that the AI is Delta. He's very logical about what to do.. Like I was using my Emperoron ((Or how ever it's spelled)) And the Torterra KO'd it, and I sent out Poneyta to finish him, and after that he sent out Flotzal... Stupid, smart AI.
