dan was athletic today!

yay for me, and shiz. so, my dorm has not one, but 2 giant water balloon/watergun/water bottle/water fights. giant enough to bring in a nearby dorm. bwahaha. it ruled! so we were all wicked soaked and funly and stuff.. o and lots of girls in bikini tops, which is always a bonus.. and then i played volleyball. i suck at volleyball! luckily, i don't care. i'm not half bad at serving, but i seem incapable of returning a shot. but i hit the ball around, and ran around, and dived in the sand, and collided with megan like 5 times cuz we're smart. good times. then i changed my sheets! it's been a looong time since clean sheets. mm i can hardly wait. and i put away my laundry n stuff, cuz it had been sitting on the floor in the laundry bag for a few days. i'd forgotten how comfy t shirt and shorts are, compared with shirt shirt and pants. ohh the freedom. anyway, now i have to read "a house in earnest" which by all accounts blows, but whatever. i wanna go read up on the deck, but then i can't listen to music. o wait, i have a discman. score! haha!
o, and jake and geoff.. thanks for last nite. i was in a shitty mood when i left, but by the time we got back i was all happy again. whoo!

george the birthday caterpillar balloon has made a bid for freedom. i had all my windows and door open, which apparently created quite a breeze. twice he goes sailing out of my room, down the hall, into the lounge, before i can catch him. the 3rd time i figure i'll leave him in teh lounge for the enjoyment of the dorm. so i'm back in my room, a few minutes later, and see him go flying past my window. which means he went up the stairs, out the back door, out towards the parking lot, around the dorm, and back towards the dorm again. he's now viciously tangled in a tree outside my window. i can see him if i lean way over. serves him right for fleeing.

yay, cute girls rescued my balloon! i'm sitting here reading house in earnest - not nearly so bad as everyone was saying, btw, unless it descends soon - and aly and shannon pop into my doorway with george, inquiring "is this your worm, sir?" i didn't bother pointing out he's actually a caterpillar. so now george is back floating happily in my room, smiling down on me. aww.
tho i did have to tie his string to one of the window opener thingys (i think i'm having a vocab loss here.. the handle thing that you turn to open the window) to keep him from blowing away again.
i was going to say something unrelated to that in this paragraph, but i've forgotten what it was.
as for this paragraph, i came back to my dorm last nite and people were halfway thru watching 'magnolia' which i've heard is a wonderful excelelnt movie. it's on tape, so i decided rather than start halfway thru i will watch it another time. i was planning to today, but sadly, reading must come first. so hopefully that tape will stay in the vcr for the next few days until i find 3 spare hours.
oh, i remember what that 3rd para was gonna be: i like k's choice. they are good.

end transmission.

errant thought

i'll start my 'errant thought' by not getting to the thought yet, but did i spell errant right? it looks wrong, but i can't think how else it might be. of course i could just look it up, but i'd rather just babble.
so yes, my thought was that - ok, another quick interruption, why does my dorm smell strongly of chloriene right now? - my thought was that i have been sleeping oddly lately. not that i haven't realized that til just now, but it occurred to me to mention here. cuz you all want to know. ha. anyway, so yes, dan don't sleep well the past few days. i'll be lying there waiting to fall asleep, and then i feel like i did fall asleep and i was for an hour or so but just woke up, ilook at the clock and it's only been a few minutes. then i do get to sleep, but wake up after only 6 hours or so, not feeling all that tired, per se, but still wanting more sleep. so i lie there for a while and maybe fall asleep for another hour. but i won't notice. like i eventually realize that, hey, i wasn't just running around on some mountain, i was lying here the whole time, that must have been a dream! i must have fallen asleep. even though i didn't notice i had.

thirsty is a mood? hmm.

dan vastly contributes to the scientific community

o yeah, so i got that SETI@home thing the other day. it's kinda neat. i've got it allthetime running in the background, and turned off the screensaver, cuz i never use screensavers anyway. if i'm gonna be gone for awhile, i turn off the monitor. and it runs faster sans pic anyway. but yeah, so that's cool. i've got 2 work units done, and i'm 51.069% done the 3rd. good for me.
and i saw "traffic" last night, which i don't think i mentioned yet. a very good movie! you should all see it.
and everyone download this song, cuz it's lots of fun.
i reeeeeally should read more now. i'm planning to get about 150 pgs thru tonite, so as to be able to finish tomorrow, i'm currenlty on page 23. haha. o crap, i have to do that stupid crit analysis article thing too sometime. that won't take long tho.

    Fishbone - Party at Ground Zero

a bit of poppy joy

I was tired of my lady
We'd been together too long
Like a worn-out recording
Of a favorite song
So while she lay there sleeping
I read the paper in bed
And in the personal columns
There was this letter I read

"If you like Pina Coladas
And getting caught in the rain
If you're not into yoga
If you have half a brain
If you'd like making love at midnight
In the dunes on the Cape
Then I'm the love that you've looked for
Write to me and escape."

I didn't think about my lady
I know that sounds kind of mean
But me and my old lady
Have fallen into the same dull routine
So I wrote to the paper
Took out a personal ad
And though I'm nobody's poet
I thought it wasn't half bad

"Yes I like Pina Coladas
And getting caught in the rain
I'm not much into health food
I am into champagne
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon
And cut through all this red-tape
At a bar called O'Malley's
Where we'll plan our escape."

So I waited with high hopes
And she walked in the place
I knew her smile in an instant
I knew the curve of her face
It was my own lovely lady
And she said, "Oh it's you."
Then we laughed for a moment
And I said, "I never knew.

That you like Pina Coladas
Getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean
And the taste of champagne
If you like making love at midnight
In the dunes of the Cape

You're the lady I've looked for
Come with me and escape."

yay!! happy endings..

and now, in searching for the above lyrics online, i found this, which i share with you, my loyal readers:


"Pina Colada"

-Come on
-A vailar

[Chorus 2x:]
Where're my niggers with the big dicks? -Ahh
Where're my niggers with the hot whips? -Ahh
Where're my niggers living better?
We want Barettas and Amarettas, butter leathers and mad cheddar.


(Ayo Pun, I got you baby)
We play the front not the back, when there's beef I attack
Grab the guns and start lighting
Ya'll the bitch niggers behind cars scared to death like "yo, who fighting?"
How the fuck you teaching me I ain't got no obedience
Ya'll are made of shit I'm the thug's ingredients
And for my niggers I peel like fucked up paint jobs
Cover your block and put holes in you like old blankets
Fuck a bitch use a sock and wipe my nut what?
Run in your spot and use a Glock to get my cut what?
Smack you in public and embarrass you slut what?
Put you on punishment the same way I do to my son
And the only bullets by my stomach be the clip from my gun
And when my gun busts it's over so close the curtains
My silencer's like ch, ch, ch like birds was chirping
I like Boricuas ya know that Sheik be freaky
I put coke in their peepee then stuff the bras
Put some coke in the bras that look like coconuts
That's what's up don't have Sheik's click clack this up
Disload the back pack her bitch ass back me up
You know double R and Terror Squad niggers want they cut.

[Chorus 2x]
[Big Pun:]

I'm well know like Al Capone, full blown like Tone Montana
In the zone sitting on chrome stoned sipping on Champana
Rolling ganja up in Bible paper
A high that will take us through the eyes of Christ, John, Elijah, Jacob
I make the kind of green that hustler's dream
Busting out that custard cream
Piper cause I'm piped up with the mustard team
Plus the queen Fort Knox and hearts
King of medallions Monty Guard
Even Italians see my battalion prop the broad
I got the squad over qualified pulling over Karl Kani
Range Rover tilted three wilted hydraulic slide
Spark the Live in the crowd ripping trough housings
Like the Wu do in Shaolin
John Blazing on a pound of buddha and all the mami chulas,
They want to ride on my Honda scooter
You know the red one from the video
But really though she ain't coming and she ain't running the
Trizzie yo!

[Chorus 2x]

[Big Pun:]

Disrespect the Don word's bond I'm gonna shoot ya
We can get it on maricon hijo'de gran puta
Who you fucking' wit?
Bitch ass nigger you ain't running' up on shit
Talking' like you gonna bust yo clip
Nigger you ain't no fucking threat
You talk a lot but you ain't never realized that if you walk that block
Cock that Glock, think I'm pussy oh shit man! Big Punisher's off his rocker
What you got? Beef wit' me? Aight then papi, Sheik's with me
Thought you cats were gonna creep on me
without some type of an injury.

[Chorus 2x]


I see coward in yours, what you up in my eyes?
Big dick between mine, What the fuck between your thighs?
Pussy, If I shoot, are you gonna shoot back?
I don't think so, your man's the thug you ride piggy-back
You're the one that passed the gat, told your man to bust that
You ain't making no money, you're a broke-ass cat
And once these pop, cops bring the chalk
and the mop to get the rest of you off the sidewalk. what!

[Chorus 2x]

not quite so pleasant as the original, i don't think, but he likes cheddar so he can't be all bad. right?
