Fiona and me in the snow

a long underdone overdue entry

An update long overdue as usual. I really need to stop this infrequent update, it's not healthy for me.

It's been a pretty good week for me. The short story. ... The piano is tuned, yay, I fixed the pedal which wasn't working properly, programming's going well, and I've scanned lots of books lately.

Valentine's Day was Monday and I got flowers! It's basically a plant type thing with baby rose type flowers, so it hasn't died, yet. I hope I can keep water going to it so I can remember the day. I'm still working on Liz's present. I know, it's late, but it should be cool. Gift type has been redacted and classified. It's been six months as of this week. THat's a long time.

I'm thinking about offering programming services via bribery to my advanced calculations class. Apparently, in talking to my professor yesterday, I came up with a "grea"t idea, one that he hadn't come up with. He told the class yesterday afternoon. Most didn't ask me for help, but a couple people did. I didn't know what price I should ask for giving advice, so I gave them a cryptic clue and left. Until Tuesday when it's due, I'm keeping my ideas most definitely classified yet again.

I'm planning on going back to the public library today to get out of my room and hang out somewhere else. It's definitely a change in pace to leave here, and it underlies the fact that I still really don't like being trapped on the other side of Maple (a busy and anarchical street that I have to cross to get to the rest of campus) away from the union coffee shop. I'm hoping to learn the bus system next week, but until then, my occasional trip to the public library or a borrowed golf cart trip to the Union will have to do. Either way I get coffee, and that's a good thing.

Well, I'd better go and eat lunch. Perhaps I'll be able to write a more coherent entry this afternoon when I get to the library. I don't know why I can't put words together in a pattern that I like today, but I figured that I should probably write a scattered entry than no entry at all. Take care and I'll write when I get something neat to write about.
