      Well, I'm done with the first year of Grad school. So I'll see soon how I did.

      I came home Saturday evening to be here for Mothers day. My mom is going to be having some surgery in a few days so I'd appreciate it if ya'll would keep her in your thoughts and prayers. My sister was supposed to be headed down to Texas, but thats now been postponed until this all gets sorted out.

    • Update Upate...

      fireworkpete

      Well here's an update for ya'll

      I'm currently finished (except for an online class) with all my classes for this school year. I took one final this afternoon (twas easy) and have one this upcoming Friday.

      Our studio project was once again nominated to be judged for the Chicago Prize. If we win, that will make 2 wins in 1 year for me and will be the second thing I will exhibit along side our previous semester's project.

      I personally am doing well. I'm recovering all the sleep I lost these past 2-3 weeks.

      I'm still looking for a summer job. I was supposed to be contacted this Friday but the guy was out of the office so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

      Other than that, not much else is going on. I'll keep you all posted. Good luck and God Bless you all.

      Another Aftershock, early monday morning.

      Felt like it was about a 4 to 4.2

      Edit: USGS just popped it up, says it was a 4.5 Didn't feels as strong as the last one though, so I'll check it again in the morning.

    • Good morning Earthquake

      11 years ago

      fireworkpete

      Well, I was woken up this morning (at 4:36) by a very vigorous shaking. A first I thought it was someone trying to wake me up, but quickly realized that part was still from a dream. I then sat there in my bed while it shook around like a wet dog for about another 10 seconds.

      Turns out it was a magnitude 5.2 earthquake about 100 miles away. Not a bad little shake. Those in California might think this is nothing, but stuff like this doesn't happen round here all that much.

      So tell me, did you feel it?

      P.


      Edit Kind of large aftershock at 10:16.

      Edit Edit Ha! I observed to my girlfriend that the aftershock felt like about a 4.5. Turns out it was... :-)

      I finally ordered my dishwasher. I got tired of all my dishes piling up in my kitchen cause I didn't have time to wash them. So to get around this I ordered a countertop dishwasher. It had the best reviews of all the small ones I'd seen. Hopefully It will alleviate some of my problems.

      In other news studio is going well. Design has to be finished in less than a week. We are currently on track to meet this.

      Will be heading to N.Y. N.Y. for my yearly business meeting in 2 weekends.

      Does anyone know whether or not teaching logic is a requirement for our public schools?

      To be frank, I'm rather tired of people saying things and then assume that their ideas are irrefutable and on top of that when they are presented with evidence to the contrary, they completely ignore it or claim that its not applicable?

      Ah cool. I was just reading up on the stuff they're doing with these huge new video cards and multiple core processors doing all sorts of interesting stuff in real time. They keep saying they're going to do all of this stuff in real time, but they keep making what they're shooting for that much more detailed.

      Anyway I really do like what you did there, it looks really awesome. Extra points for being clever and denying the grass special extra treatment :)

      Tazo® Passion™ Iced tea is a tantalizing, deep red herbal infusion made from hibiscus flowers, passion fruits, exotic herbs and natural tropical flowers, lightly sweetened and hand-shaken with ice.


      So yeah, all sorts of plant material :)

    • hrryank

      12 years ago

      To tell you the truth, passion tea may be completely fictional and just made up of other stuff. Starbucks had passion tea lemonade and it was really good, and you can buy it in stores if you look, but it may just be something specific to them. It wouldn't surprise me either.

    • hrryank

      12 years ago

      Thanks a lot! Now all I have to do is find a good source of passion tea.
