That took over a year for me to come up with. Hope it was worth it!

Lou and I were going to room together this year, but turns out we took a little too much time to turn in our housing stuff, so now we can't live on campus. My parents don't know yet; I'll probably tell them tomorrow. They are going to be pissed. They wanted me to stay in the dorms for at least the first 3 years, since off-campus housing usually ends up being more expensive than on, at least that is what they say. They are going to be so pissed. I am so fucked. Fuck.

That just gets to sit there and take phone calls all day. For multiple reasons:
1) It means I know a lot about computers - That would be good for my job and my leisure, which is the internet mainly.
2) It would probably be so easy - I assume most of the people that call for tech help have no other access to any type of assistance, which means all you really need to teach them is how to open their internet browser, and perform a successful Google search. Probably some people are less dumb and actually need help for things I couldn't teach them right now. But as an IT guy I must be some sort of super genius that has a wireless connection between my brain and the internet and/or whatever else computers are good for. It would be like getting paid for someone to ask me "What two NBA teams did Michael Jordan play for?" or "Can you name a movie, any movie?" Assuming the questions get more difficult as time goes on, in a Who Wants to be a Millionaire fashion, then I may have to tap into my direct instantaneous internet and make up some words. I don't know. The point is it would be easy.
Someone told me to write a journal, so I did what I usually do in response to an order, tell them to fuck off then do what they say.
I have two papers to write, both are due on Thursday, and I haven't started. I even took my backpack with everything I could possibly need in it with me over Spring Break. Then I didn't take it out of my car until Wednesday and the rest of the time it sat facing the fireplace, looking disappointed.
I watched some movies over the break, bought a shitty James Bond game and Halo. The latter has been fun, but it made me notice all the nice things they fixed, and how much they boringified the campaign in Halo 2. Someday I might even get to play number 3!
I watched some movies.
Cabin Fever: Eli Roth. That guy. I think he says he wants to make grindhouse flicks but really only recreates all the boring aspects. Okay, mostly just the boring aspects. I heard Hostel had some gore.
The Bank Job: It wasn't really a Jason Statham movie, more of just a bank heist movie, and was entertaining. There were lots of boobs in the beginning to spice it up, Eli Roth take notes.
Scream: Yeah, I watched for the first time in a while. Happy days.
I bet there are a bunch of suckers in class right now.
Oh yeah: I watched the first three Leprechaun movies. They were all pretty much equally bad.

These are what I want:
Twin Peaks Gold Box $64 I think I'm going to buy this, but since it is a TV show (multiple viewings) I'm going to wait until a long break from school to buy it. Otherwise I'd be buying it now and probably not watching it for a while.
Brazil 3-disc Box Set: I own the single disc, but I want this instead. $46
The Lady From Shanghai: $17 Maybe later, but for now I'll just Netflix it. Compulsion: $11 Netflix Chimes at Midnight: $42 There is a version released in Spain that is suppose to have acceptable quality, but I doubt it would play on my X-Box.Not really an option, but a dream. Othello: The Lost Masterpiece: $35 It normally goes for twice that, so it may be sold soon.I just realized I can Netflix this too. Surprising and awesome. The Trial: $27 This isn't even the best quality one, but it's the best one that's sold in America.I'll wait on this.
The Orson Welles Collection $20 It has a shittier version of The Trial, but it has a 1953 live TV broadcast of King Lear, which isn't available any other way.
$100 sounded like a lot at first.
Also, are there any good games on DS right now, or are there going to be soon? I need something there.
Edit: I found more that I want. Then I changed my mind.
I bought Miller's Crossing for $5 and The Sergio Leone Anthology for $32. They were good buys. Best Buys. Good jokes, Jarod.
I hope you all feel bad for being excited for this.
