Fiona and me in the snow

The dead remote, rain, and school, yes there's a relationship

Today's yet another day, yet another day closer to my first semester as a graduate student. I didn't write yesterday due to the fact that it was slightly to be diminutive, crazy. got up and drank my coffee, getting ready to do this journal actually. I thought Zim, our puppy, was chewing on a bone. NOt the case. For maybe fifteen minutes, he jumped up on the couch and had this weird rubber stuff in my mouth. I thought it might be a good idea to investigate further, and yes he had something he wasn't supposed to have. Needless to say, the XM Radio remote is nw in remote heaven. He chewed the whole end off, so much so that the front bit with the rubber in it fell off. He then proceeded to start eating the rubber. The only positive here is that I now know how cool remotes look inside. Luckily, he didn't eat the battery, but I think he ate the infrared LED and part of the circuit board. I swear, that dog's got to have an interesting x-ray profile in his stomach. Its funny now, but I was SO freaking mad at him, especially when he wouldn't come to me with the piece that he had, Ge knew he was in trouble. He'e behind a gate now for as long as I can handle him being locked up. That way this might not happen. Might is the keyword; if this dog can find something bad to do, he'll do it. He's a lovable thing though, so you can't be mad at him for long.

Today its raining again. A good day for me to stay inside and finish this final I think. I'd like to enter graduate school with no incompletes, and if I just take some time I should be able to make that happen. Collapse )

After, or before my final, I haven't decided which, I could also do some reading. I'll have time next semester to read for fun, but reading at home while its raining outside is a totally different thing.

I'm still waiting for the piano guys to call me as I'm considering getting a piano player system put in my piano so I can record myself. There's so many times I play random stuff and never remember what I've played. If I could record it on a real piano and have it played back/notated, I might be able to actually write some crap down or produce a cd. Who knows.

Well, that's about it from here. Got theoretically lots of things to do, or not :).

(no subject)

Just a short update. Today, amazingly, Zim was actually good. I let him out of lockdown, and I think he actually was either really tired, or he thought / understood that I was probably going to kick his ass outside if he ate anything or bit anybody. He ate a bit of wood from the fireplace, but that's normal for him. He didn't eat any remotes so we're happy about that. NO remotes = good :).

I didn't do any work. Well, I did actually if you count emailing professors. Still don't know if I'm okayed to work, but I better tell them soon because I now have days that I'm supposed to work. Its going to be Sunday and Tuesday evenings. I get to work with my good buddy John (the guy who took 26 hours last semester), so that should be cool. He's terrified of his Chem 2 he'll be taking next semester, so I'm looking forward to helping him. Plus, the extra 320 a month minus tax will help out.

Well, that's about it. Just sitting here letting the computer do my show for me, so I probably should make it work intelligently for a change. More soon.
