welcome to dan's pants..

.. or his journal. whatever. hiya. i have no idea if this thing is working, this is a really crappy program. but hey, cool concept, i can type in here and it will send stuff winging off to the nice server to be stuck on my site. viva. why can't i maximize the window?? i want to! i maximize almost everything, it's so much easier to see stuff that way. fnarr. yeah. so i'm going to hit send now and see if it shows up, cuz that'd be fun.. seeya on the flipside, g funk. right.

i rule!

ok, so this thing seems to be workin' just fiiiine. groovy. now, to start off, i'm going to take a hint from the recent fun that's gone down, and say right off that, whatever i say on here, deal with it. most likely, me being me, i won't say anything that's gonna upset anyone, cuz i tend not to do that, cuz i'm neurotic about that (i'm sure i'll have more to say about that at some point, assuming i stick with using this thingy).. but should i ever say something on here that you don't like (yes, YOU), then tell me. ask me about it, say it sucks, say why it sucks. but don't get freaked out by anything in here. dan is rambling and intends to continue doing so. i sincerely doubt i will ever say anything too evil about anything who would be bothered to actualy read this thing, so.. yeah.. in summation, pay me no mind.
and now, down to business......... yeah. so i'm sitting here writing in this thing despite having TONS of stuff i have to do. cuz i'm wicked smart. i have to.. let's see... read 2 books of the iliad, a buncha crap in ovid, a buncha crap in "love medicine", write 19 MILLION friggin jounal entries for my prose class (hell, maybe i'll use entries from here. yay!)(tho i'd probly have to skip this part, woudln't i..), a ton in my reading journal, umm i think that's about it. and random things i need to do over the next few days, cuz whatever. but i am a big fan of procrastination, so i'm doing this now. actualy i hate procrastination. detest it with a fucking passion. but i do it anyway. which is why i am ALWAYS stressed over stupid stuff, have too much i need to do too soon, and generally am running around like a moron. but hey, it's cool, right? sure..
ooh, julie just IMed me. hmm, nevermind the ooh, she's screwed on some project for a class. that sucks. classes suck. that's it, dropping out of school! yep, that's official. cept for not. speaking of which, i need to finish picking my damn clsses for next year. i'm no good at deciding things.
not bad for a 1st post, i don't think. or maybe it sucks, i dunno. i babbled. i think i'm gonna enjoy this thing, tho. so thank you geoff for putting it in his profile so i could go look at it and make my own.
o yeah, shoudln't i actually say something about my day in here? haha i'm smart. k, so.. got up at fuckin early (7:40am), ate a granola bar... mmmmm... did wicked good on a calc test (assuming i didn't forget how to add or something, whcih is entirely possible), watched some of 'a doll house' which, despite being a pretty lame play to sit and read, works REALLY well as a movie. umm sat in my room awhile, lunch, myth - i have no memory at all of being in the class today tho, once i had sat down.. hmm.. dicked around.. my dorm is playing ASSASSINS now. i have the Sock Of Doom. tremble before the Sock Of Doom, puny mortals! bwa! right. o yes: never ever see 'the tao of steve' dear god that sucked rocks. i walked out after 20 mins, and fell asleep in an african art flick. i've been falling asleep alot lately, in classes and stuff. that's probly a bad sign. i think i'm getting insomnia.. i was in bed 6 hrs last nite and i'd be really surprised if i slept for more htan 2 hours of that.. shitty. well, we'll see how tonite goes, eh? i like sleeping.
ok, this is way too friggin long. i'm just gonna post now.

    U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday (Live) i will note here that i was listening to coldplay's "such a rush" moments ago, and it is abso-frigging-lutely beautiful. i love that song to death


stupid iliad. too long and crazy and having to be read for tomorrow. i wish this were the matrix so i could just plug myself into something and know the whole book, that'd be sweet.

    Alice Cooper - Welcome To My Nightmare

good grief!

fuckin spammers. ok, in case any of you don't know, if you get an email from "Hahaha" with the subject saying something about "snow white and the seven dwarves - the real story" and there's an attachment, it's a virus. for some reason, i've been getting this sent to me like every day lately. morons! oh well. so yeah, don't run any snow white stuff or you're dumb. tra la la.

    Lit - Miserable [Live @ Woodstock]

oh yeah, blah

so apparently my calc teacher now "reserves the right" to take attendence at class. damn. now i can't skip when i'm tired. it's at 8 in the damn morning! morning = EVIL. oh well. on the plus side, i'm probably skipping my calc lab today. a) we never do anything useful there other than quizzes b) had a quiz tuesday, therefore none today c) test yesterday so we're just starting a new section now, so i won't miss anything d) we haven't gotten the tests back yet, so can't go over it very well. therefore this will be a useless day. so i'll stay here and do homework cuz i have a lot and want to get it done. then i have an aegis meeting tonite, that'll be fun. they're always fun, people there are cool. i miss fencing tho, i haven't gone in a long time. probly once or twice in the past month. i'm always either busy or lazy. great mix, eh? oh well. it's the end of the year, nothing exciting is going on. i'll try to start going again soon, and i can get fully back into the swing of it next year.
oh yeah, and i've had a cold for like a week now, that's kinda gross. right now my nose is all stuffed up and my throat is kinda sore. better than the EXTREMELY RUNNY NOSE i've had all week tho. i'd rather be stuffy than runny - can always breath thru my mouth instead, and this way i'm not constantly gross and dripping or whatever. mmm snot. damn cold.
ok, back to iliad. as soon as i finish this book (4)(as in one of the books of the iliad, not the book containing the iliad), i'm going for lunch. that reminds me, i need to rant about philbrook's fancy meal sometime.

    Phish - Ramble On (live cover)


so "on and on" just started.. this song always reminds me of sara, seeing as it's her favorite song (or was when she had me dl it, anyway). i miss sara alot. i've hardly seen her at all this year, that sucks.. it's weird, some people i see all the time, some fairly often, and some almost never; but there's really no reason for one over the other, alot of times, it's just the way it works out. there's people i see every day i don't like nearly as much as people i never see, which is a shame. tho i dont know what i'd do if i was surrounded by my favorite people constantly, that would be kindof weird too. i should make more sense, but i really don't.
