I’ve been trying to clean up WebPageless lately by removing everything extra that it doesn’t need. While VNCing in today, I got that remote shutdown window with 59 seconds remaining. Looks like I got a worm. Now I gotta clean it out over VNC >_>

FIRST Robotics

I was asking Andy and Vince if they ever go to Chatsworth HS, and they did every year for robotics. I talked about how we made it to the finals because we were picked by one of the winning teams to be on its alliance. I told the story of us spinning on the enemy’s extender in order to fake entanglement, disqualify the opponent, and win. Andy remembers it. He was sitting on the sidelines at the time. How fucking awesome!

Gemma’s Birthday

Yesterday was Gemma’s birthday! I went over to her place at 11:30 so I could be there when it became midnight and her birthday. We talked and cuddled for a while, and then I gave her a gift. I bought her a Pucca doll and put it in a basket surrounded by tissue paper. I made her a card too. She seemed to like it! I read her a birthday story too and ended up falling asleep there. Then, after class, we went out to the Steelhead Brewery for dinner. Very tasty. She has two midterms tomorrow (Wednesday), but I hope it was a good day for her. I tried to make it a happy day!

Weekend So Far

On Friday I went to Albertson’s with Will and Patrick. Will bought a lot of tasty food. Afterwards, Gemma and I went to return The Grudge and then went to Albertson’s. She bought a coloring book… Cartoon Cartoons from Cartoon Network. Pretty cool. We were gonna start coloring, but I was tired, so went to bed.
Saturday morning we went to breakfast, and then I went out with Will and Patrick to do some shit (successfully!). Then I went to my mom’s house. I’m not sure if I can go out there for my birthday so I got my birthday gifts that day. I got a cool shirt, Tao Te Ching, and The Tao of Physics. Very cool stuff. My brother gave me a small Tigger plushie. He said that when I’m angry or frustrated, I could punch it and pretend it’s him. I love James, lol. We watched The Incredibles that night, which is a good movie. Made me think of Gem. I also sorted all of my paperwork. It needed to be done.
When I got back, I went to Lee’s and Jack-in-the-Box with Gem. I bought a bobble-head Anteater from Jack-in-the-Box, then came back to Evenstar to eat. I tried to do laundy, then watch a movie while eating. Well, my movies wouldn’t work. But neither would a good original. It was the cable. So I switched cables. It still didn’t work. The common room’s RCA jacks are bad. I left a note on the white board downstairs (it was erased the next day. Maybe I shouldn’t cuss in it) and threw the marker down. My food was getting cold. And I had to wash my clothes three times because, I guess, I added too much soap. So my food got cold, but it was still pretty good. I watched cartoons with Gemma and colored a Dexter’s Laboratory picture. Now I was really tired so I went to bed. Gemma waited for my laundry and took my clothes out for me because I was too tired. Isn’t she great? I love her! Then she woke up, and we went back to Gondolin.
I woke up today around 2:30, came back here, did laundry, took a shower, and then went out to eat. I went with Gem, Toni, Jon, and Gabby. We drove around looking for a place, and Gemma chose Sumo: Sushi & Seafood Buffet. It came to about $140 for the five of us, but wow, it was delicious. I’d love to go back sometime. Toni was even happy with it, although he doesn’t see what we see in a lot of the seafood. He did try some new foods that day, so it was probably pretty cool for him. When we got back, I ended up going with Chris, Vince, and Kevin back to The Shire to play Magic: The Gathering. Yeah, I know. But, whatever, I’m a loser. It was really fun to play. A Shireling, Paul, has a box of cards because he’s a ref. He said he’ll do a draft next Saturday night no charge. Should be fun! Oh, and I got my FAFSA pin today! Yay. Okay bye.


Pete called me today. My computer wasn’t ready. I went back to sleep. I woke up around 12:30 to Toni telling me about the ICS midterm. Russell called and ate with us. It was cool to see him again; it’d been a while. CSE lecture was interesting. Some more information about interfaces clicked in my mind for me. Plus, weird things kept happening to Thornton (see previous WebPageless entry). During class, I also got a lot further in BeBop! Yay for money in the game! Writing was interesting too. I enjoy that class a lot. I was thinking about my story throughout class, and I think I have a pretty good idea for a story now. It’s 10-20 pages and is due a week from Tuesday. I’ll start this weekend I think. I need to start the ICS project too.
After all my classes, I just chilled for a few hours. I went to Taco Bell with Jaysen and ate while watching Family Guy. Then, around 10:30, we watched Wake Up, Ron Burgundy: The Lost Movie with Patrick. It ended though, and I got bored. I found Jin and Jackie outside so went to hang out with them. Gemma came over, and it was great to see her as usual. She gives wonderful hugs 🙂 We pushed two couches together and laid together. She left around two o’clock, I think. I talked to a girl from first floor and her bf who lives off campus. I can’t remember either of their names, but they were both cool. Oh, and I got her and Jackie’s laptops to get on the wifi network. I also talked with Allison Tsao for a while. She’s really cool, and I’m glad I’m getting to know her. Around 5, everyone else went to bed. It was raining, and I like the rain, so I went for a walk. I didn’t take a jacket because I wanted to feel the weather a bit, and I took Toni’s umbrella. I didn’t use it the whole time because I wanted to feel some rain, but I didn’t want to get soaked. Plus, I think the sound of the rain hitting the umbrella is really beautiful. Forecasts say it’ll rain for a while. I’m happy.
