i am very surprised by everything. timing, timing.
i hate my luck but i love my friends.
thought you'd like to know. not what i wanted, but it all comes out in the wash.
so i got a big exciting birthday card from most of my dorm. it rules :] it's a shame i wasnt at the meeting to get it, but khaek brought it over later. it makes me all happylike. thank you, woodruff people!
oh - sorry amy.. i downloaded a bunch the other day, and i'm now officially a thursday fan
i wonder if i'll get my paper done for class tomorrow. we'll find out! thankfully the one due wednesday has been pushed back til monday, so i won't have to not sleep 2 nights in a row. slackity slack slack.
and as per last year, my parents ordered me a birthday cake from philbrook. and as per last year, it's not a particularly good cake. but that's besides the point. cake! whee! i was singsonging on the way back from picking it up.. "cake cake cake for me, i have cake for dan, cake for me, i have cake, i am dan with cake"etc. there are few better ways to pointlessly amuse yourself than by singsonging.
and another person was revealed to be reading my journal, but not commenting, so as to be not known. there seems to be a lot of you out there. everyone reading this, say something!
i went to taike a short nap at 5. a half hour. alarm was set for 5:30, i checked 3 fucking times to make sure. just woke up, alarm never went off.
5 hrs to write/finish reading for the paper. NOT GONNA HAPPENFSEFQLIEHGLIEWGHLIESHGFES
what are you talking about? rejection fucking rules.
they're doing some unexplained construction work outside my dorm. they've blocked off 5 spots in the forestparkistan parking lot, for no apparent reason, adn they have a whatchamacallit construction truck thing digging the hell out of the woods, apparently to make a giant dirt pile. maybe they're going to dump the dirt in the parking spots. it woudln't make any less sense than what htey're doing now. anyawy tho, the point of me mentioning this is that approximately every 20 seconds, the cnstruction truck thing makes the most ANNOYING SOUND EVER, which i can only compare to an elephant being scraped down a blackboard. this fucking irritating whiney noise. oh yeah, and its "i am backing up, so all you people behind me IN THE DAMN WOODS WHERE NO ONE IS ANYWHERE NEAR IT had better get out of the way" siren keeps going off too. i feel bad for all the lower quad people who have to listen to this every day
this is one of those days where i have to lock my door to keep the wind from blowing it open.
new plan: pass by lying. it's easier this way. maybe i should get lunch.
this was fun... yesterday in the mub i'm eating lunch before class. i hear "HAPPY BIRTHDAY WOOODY", and look up to see geoff yelling from upstairs. i wave and yell THANK YOU when i swallow my mouthful of sub. then he yells that he was trying to embarass me as much as possible. at this point laura and christie run out and say tehy were going to throw wadded up paper at me with happy birthday written on it but geoff ruined the surprise. which is a shame, cuz even chance they woulda missed and hit an innocent bystander (bysitter?) and entertained me.
and voicemails of both my parents AND jesus singing happy birthday.
for a place that has "membership services available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week" written on the back of their card, marketplaza is closed quite often. of course, theyve proven themselves quite unreliable in the whole "not lying through our teeth" department, so i cant say i'm hugely surprised
hmmmm apparently midway thru my phonecall, the company changed its name from marketplaza to essentials. how did that happen?

Scummder (1:51:49 PM): oh my! *presses your self-destruct button*
King Nixon (1:54:42 PM): dammit, you werent supposed to know about the button
i THINK i just cancelled my marketplaza account. i'm not actually sure, because the guy i talked to had an incomprehensible middle eastern accent. at the end of the call i'm pretty sure he asked if i was a member of the UN and if i wanted to be transfered to an aol helpline, so i'm pretty sure he was crazy too. he probably signed me up for 3 more accounts instead.
i've been informed it is a gorgeous day today. let's go find out, shall we
