Took the snake and rabbit to church due to it being Bring-Your-Pet Sunday. The minister blessed them both.

For goodness snakes, they were all ears for the Lord.

I watched the first - well, second actually - episode of Last of the Summer Wine. My goodness, it was different in those days! There were more adult themes then. Compo used to smoke too! But I can take it.

I'll never understand why we have to call him 'Where's Wally?' instead of 'Where's Waldo?'.

I recently discovered this webgame called "Pandemic", wherein the goal is to, as the title suggets, cause a worldwide pandemic by creating your own disease with either a parasite, bacteria, or a virus. I don't know if I really enjoy it or not, though. On the one hand, it's a neat little game that requires some thinking and strategy; but on the other, I can't totally enjoy it because I have a tendency to lean towards the nastier symptoms and higher resistances when necessary, and ways for it to spread...and then I freak myself out by imagining what it would be like if such an illness actually existed in real life. :shock: You can create any kind of weird combination of symptoms, ranging from the typical influenza symptoms (coughing, sneezing, fever, sometimes vomiting and diarrhea) to nastier strains...imagine using all of the above and then adding boils, kidney failure, dementia...yeah, it can be pretty nasty. And since it's fall, cold and flu season should be arriving shortly. Swell.

One part that makes it downright ironic is that there is one region where your illness has the hardest time spreading: Mexico. So yeah...

This year I'm attending the Ontario Collage of Art and Design University. I selected Illustration as my field of study. Below is the main building. Looks kind of like a bad Duran Duran cover doesn't it?

Right next door is this beautiful historical building called The Grange. It was built in 1817. The tidal wave behind it is the Art Gallery of Ontario.

My bio prof sounds eerily like Robin Williams...

Nobody showed up today for my physics lab, and we were finally let in after well over an hour's confusion, and were essentially told to do three hours' work in less than two hours. Of course, we got extra time, but they didn't seem to consider that some people might have another class after the lab's scheduled end... Long and short of it is I'll be lucky if I get 40%. God, how humiliating.

I've slept six hours in the past four days, and tonight shall be a literal all-nighter. Don't you love homework?

I discovered that I function so much better in class the next day if I go to bed at 10.30 sharp, no later. I decided to abandon homework at such hours if feasible because it's better in the long run.

See, my school puts such emphasis on homework that although I would love to, I simply cannot not do it. I'll be punished less severely for simply dragging myself through class, while late work often means automatic failure.

Oh, that really does suck. While homework is useful, when it interferes with sleeping and so on, it's more of a pain in the butt.

Anyhow, I have a bio lab coming up in a little over a half hour, and I am determined that I will be able to do my best work even if the absentee-TA scenario from physics repeats itself. I've read everything at least a dozen times, made all my charts and that fun stuff out in advance, and am generally ready for anything but an earthquake. (To be fair to the physics TA, he promised to be more lenient when judging my work after I explained the scenario, but everything was so sloppy, clumsy, rushed, and incomplete, I expect to fail anyhow.)

That really goes to show how worse off we are! Financially, that is. On the bright side, we have Holmfirth...

Looks like I missed a lot.

The good thing is, I'm back

The bad thing is, I'm in Birminghell
