Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

NSF Ner? @ 08:06 pm

I'm still sitting here in pain yet when I don't move, it doesn't hurt all that bad. I'm still weak and tired, though the Adville I took just a bit ago seems to have lessened the swelling a bit. When I have more energy I will explain why my ribs do this but I think I explained it a bit last time it happened, maybe. Look for it tomorrow.

I suppose I should think about writing up this stupid lab thing I have to do for computer methods at some point. That and I should think about doing my lab report which is due on Friday; I refuse to do it at the last minute, again, but I have a feeling that in the state I'm in now it'll happen.

I got a 21 out of 25 on my quiz in analytical lab today. I was mega amazed because ffrankly I had not a clue of what I was doing.

Its damn cold, damn grey, and damn moist outside. A few weeks ago I wrote about the mists we were experimenting being like the green coasts of Ireland. Well I think its like it'd be if Ireland was on steroids or something. It just seems like the mists and cold are amplified by 10. Hence why I will be brewing tea for an upcoming phone conversation.

I've been looking up phones and it does look like I'll be getting one, at some point. Problem is, the one that has the ability to talk is really popular because its got the camera built in it, not that I'll need the camera. Its got an operating system on it though, which has a screen reader on it so needless to say, when you guys send me a text message via my userinfo page, I'll be able to read it by myself. Small wondre it may seem, but blind people have been locked out of text messaging for a long long time.

I saved the best for last. I totally forgot a segment of my day which helped to make it so cool. Suppose I should remember to not write while on drugs eh? Well, my Design teacher yesterday wanted to talk to me about something. He works on a panel that tells people from the National Science Foundation how they can improve or something like that. He ahs just come back from a meeting in Washington you see. I was mentioned in a conversation with one of the people from there in curriculum planning, and The short story is that they want to come down here and assess me for a study oportunity. Basically I'll be a lab rat or some such next semester when I'll be going through the hell of desigining a major chemical plant or some weird thing for a contest in New Mexico we will be competing in. He wanted to ask me if I wanted to be a lab rat, and I said, "what the heck, where do I lose?" This might be a huge door into getting a job with them which could be very cool. They are a prestigious organization with lots of money and though I might not get to do many things totally chemical engineering related, I might just get more people with disabilities interested in going against the grain and blazing trails. We'll see.

So I suppose I need to get started on brewing tea, really must get more tea of different and exotic varieties. I'm sure that will happen soon. All the best.

I really wish I was having tea there with you instead of sitting here tea-less at work and wanting tea and knowing I have to be the late designer to sit here and do nothing, now that my hard work of cleaning up other copy editors' messes is over, and waiting to go home. Blah.

What kind/flavor tea do you have? I have many varities of herbal teas (peppermint, lemon zinger, raspberry zinger, tension tamer) that I could bring over if we ever could get to hang out! By the way, I have some Sleepytime tea and Camomile tea that you can have if you want, because I am allergic to camomile. Ooops!

Hopefully you'll become a very rich lab rat, and then you can buy your own chemical laboratory. I'd go against the grain if I knew what the grain actually was.

I might just do that :P. No one really knows what against the grain is, but if you're doing something that's not mainstream and not something that everyone does, then you're going against the grain. O fourse, that's all up to interpretation by the individual person but ... that's for you to decide, I'll just get paid thousands to theorize about it :)/.
