mmmmmm, tasty @ 06:11 pm

TOday was another Saturday with the guys, me and my Dad. Miss Marsha ™ and mysister came back last night from Fayetteville, and they are all up in the WEDDING PLANNING (in all caps) mode. Me and my dad choose to be far away from this as we believe whole heartedly that men could and do find these activities harmless to health.

So we decided that we'd do the following: go to the library to activate my library card, get liquor (a man's job), and look for dogs (a dad's job). THanks to the fruits of our labor I cashed in and got a 1 L bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream. I'm drinking it with espresso right now and it is awesome. After running out of it the end of the week (I noticed that it had literally dried up because there was so little in my little jar), I KNEW I'd have to get some more even if I don't use it but once every two weeks or so. I sat in the car for the dog hunting expeditions of which my dad's becoming more and more nerotic about since Boomer died. I know he's missing having a dog to hang with, so I'm ok with his neroticness. :).

I also got my two books from amazon and will be scanning very soon, and I'm sure to have many more books to scan too as my library card now works YAY.

Yesterday was kind of a slow dy. We had our first group meeting for project three in the chemical engineering design class yesterday. Hardly anyone knew about the meeting so for a while there there was just two of us in the meeting. We ended up at the end with three, and I really hope that things progress shortly as the project's due in late April. Which sadly and scarily means that the semester is almost over as well.

Well as to not bore you further and until I can think fo new and interesting stories to tell, I'll sign off. I"ll definitely have to remind myself soon to tell the story of the Engagement Anouncement Dinner and the southern customs regarding weddings we're becoming very familiar with. Its interesting, very interesting, agonizing nonetheless, but interesting and educational. More to come about that soon.

Probably. At times, especially after the consumption of alcohol and after I haven't read what I've written, I tend to misspell things and make a total ass of myself.

Ah yes alchohol does appear to have a negative effect on Carbon based life.

books

I bought some books as well. I'm finishing Guns, Germs, and Steel, and I bought Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman, Jennifer Government by Max Barry, and The Years of Rice and Salt by Kim Stanley Robinson. Then I had to leave, because I was already spending twice as much as I had intended. Book shopping costs more than keeping my fscking car running.

I bought 1634 by Eric Flint, a sequel to a series (the last of a series) that I haven't even started yet but I HAD to have the newest book so I could finish the series when I actually start reading it.
And the famous
Against All Enemies by Richard Clark
Both of them aren't available to blind people so I wanted to make them available.

What I do is this, and it rocks for spending money. I scan the bookr eally quick (this usually works for new novels only). Then I sell the novel back to Amazon for a bit less than the cheapest book. Then I rake in the cash that I just spent minus say 2 bucks or so depending on the market. I say that spending $2 for the book is better than $18. Capitalism at its best.

Re: Baileys!!!

I know, it absolutely rocks. I usually have it with coffee, but I'm thinking of adding it to milk or chocolate milk for added nice effect, and of course listening to good Celtic music while I'm at it. Oh yeah.
