Woke up with the remnants of a hangover from a few days ago, felt crappy, the incredibly vivid dream of a girl I fell out with a few years ago didn't help, you think you're getting over something quite nicely and then a dream can take you right back there...bleh.

Was removing random stuff from my hd (procrastinating, should be thesis-mopping-up), when I came upon a pic of my ex. Stung a bit, but was also nice reminder of having been with a really hot girl once. :p

Watched mine win, and their rivals for 3rd place lose. Also, got my mouth abused by a hygienist, but at least no cavities.

Mr. Black and Mr. Grey. Maybe I should have given mine easier names, I somehow envy you because I decided it would be funny to give them ridiculous names. My three cats are Dr. Droolbabble, Engelbert Humperdinck and Binkelinus the Third of Liechtenstein.

:lol:
In the past I gave my cats actual names...simple descriptive or "cute" ones. But always been terrible with naming. The shelter called my two cats Jude and Johnny, and I didn't like those names at all...but I can't be arsed to come up with a permanent name that's better. So Mr. Grey and Mr. Black it became. Or cat. Mostly, just cat. They come running when I make mouth click noises or finger snaps so that's fine.

I tried some cheap Sony blu-ray player largely to check out the netflix access in the unit (don't care about the dvd player). After going thru hoops to be able to actually do that, I discovered anything from netflix wouldnt load to play via this unit. Just gets stuck. This was over a wired connection too, not wireless. The interface menus are terrible, even for YouTube stuff (which did work, but very slow). Basically it all confirmed that I should stick to plugging a cheap PC into the television over some unit service. What a piece of crap.

I saw it in the theater, which was a worse idea.

Finalised my flight schedule for the summer. To save on $, I will be flying a total of 40 hours, including layovers and ground transportation, to go from NY to New Zealand. Then I'll go to Korea. Then France. Via Hong Kong. Then Korea. Via China. Then NY.

:wowey:

Today I came to a troubling realization.. haven't partied for more than year, me and my gf had 3 couples over for dinner the other night - I spend more time reading than listening to new music / seeing films and I was at a quiz-night at a local center with some friends (on a saturday evening) instead of drinking till my vision dimmed. My god, have I really gotten this old? :lol:

Sort of doing the same thing on a smaller scale, booking tickets to Denmark for August with a handful of days to spend in Hong Kong. Might visit Italy while I'm in Europe anyway, always wanted to see Sicily.

Didn't manage to get to sleep till post 4am.. Then had one of those odd dream sequences where I thought I'd actually gone through the process of waking up, getting ready for the day (albeit with a headache) and starting to see double of things.. only to then really wake up and still have the headache.

Wondering why the hell people are up in arms over this Martin kid being shot... Given how there isn't much known over all, but the racist beating of an Iraqi mother of five in southern California ends up as a foot note to the martin issue.

Also am worried about one of my history courses, which is taught by a guy who is going to retire.very soon, although rumor had it he's being forced to retire by the school for generally being a terrible teacher

Two weeks left in my final semester. Six assignments left. Two are almost done with a third started. Assignments four and five should be short. Assignment six is going to take me what little time I have left to finish. Must finish...

Today I achieved what I think is a personal best of 7000 words of final draft quality report. I'm now off for a well earned pint.

@Labadal - in these times, that's great news. Must be a load off the mind.



Dear Diary: Today my plan was to be as unproductive as possible...and I was successful. Go me.

Isn't that exactly the problem?

Some vigilante stalks a guy, pursues him despite police telling him to back off and then shoots a man when he has him cornered, claiming self defence. Police couldn't even be bothered to investigate as the killer claimed "self defence", effectively turning a stupid law into a free for all "license to kill", as long as you say the magic words "i felt threatened".

Maybe it is good that it gets a bit of attention and especially the police conduct gets scrutinized a bit.

This whole thing stinks to high heaven if you ask me.

1) The police told Zimmerman not to pursue the kid.
2) The kid ends up with two bullets in his chest and nothing by skittles and iced tea in his hand

Those are two good reasons why he should have been arrested. If there is a good reason why he should not then I haven't heard it. But there is the rub and Calax is right here, we do not know all the facts. Maybe it is justified, but if there is a compelling detail that makes it so they had best make it public soon. Sooner or later someone is going to kill that guy.

I am a supporter of the Stand Your Ground law but the threat has to be reasonable and I'm just not seeing it here. But again like Calax said we do not know everything.
