Wow: Where did July go?

[Comments] (3) : I have four essays to write tonight. Thanks.

Sooo tired: must survive. four hours.

Lightbulb!: You know what would be really, really great? If iChat worked with both AIM AND Yahoo!Messenger.

[Comments] (2) Wow: How did I ever manage, back in the day before Dave, being limited to the desk by no wireless, no battery, non-proximity of bed to desk? *hugs Dave*

This randomosity was brought to you by my vagabondosity. Which also applies within my own room. Osity.

[Comments] (6) Economics: Ever since Sumana's entry I've been thinking about cost-per-wear a lot. I must admit I've previously been advised to figure one dollar per wear when shopping, and had dismissed the idea as ludicrous. A dollar per wear? That means you're paying, like $5 every time you get dressed! Who has that kind of money? Not me! But then I realized... how many $20 items of clothing do I have that I've only worn a handful of times? Shame! Shame! I'd like to think that the many items I got on sale for $7 and have worn more times than I can count sorta even it out.

I do think $1 per wear is too much. I'd rather pay, say, 20 cents. But it's handy. How many times would I have to wear a $30 jacket to make it worth buying? All that math turns me off to shopping.

Still, it's easy to see that a pair of Birkenstocks to be worn at least 1,000 times is well worth $115. And a $250 iPod mini used twice, three, four times a day for who knows how many years? It's practically free!!!

[Comments] (4) Well, it's official: My grades were posted and I passed both of my classes (surprise, surprise ;-). So now what? Do they send me an email and tell me “congratulations, this is where you can pick up your diploma”? Somehow I feel like I ought to know this. Maybe it says somewhere.

I doubt I’ll feel settled until it’s in my hands. I keep feeling as though someone is going to pop up from behind a bush (or sent me an email) and say, “Just kidding! You don’t really get a college degree! Do you think we actually give them out to silly people like you? No! It was all a joke! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA…”

Paranoid, am I?

[Comments] (5) Let's talk about what a nerd I am: While I was in the library today checking out a gazillion books for research, I also picked up two for a bit of "light reading" : A Peace to End All Peace and Oxford Illustrated History of WWI.

[Comments] (1) More about The Roses of No Man's Land: This is the first non-fiction book that has absorbed me as well as the really good fiction I read. I spent all day in bed reading, and actually got paid for it!

[Comments] (3) : Haha, I jsut realised for the previous entry I said "more about," when that was the first time I mentioned that book. Oh well. Standard WWI fare, in case you couldn't tell.

I just got an email from Amazon saying my order had been shipped. The order I places on Sunday. Grr... Isn't the whole point of Amazon to be cheap and easier than going to the story? I don't see how waitiing almost an entire business week to ship one dinky order of three CDS is in any way fulfilling this goal. *stabs amazon*

[Comments] (1) Adventures: Leonard is here (in Bakersfield). We had fun terrorizing Smart & Final and the dollar store, then went to see Grandma. More adventures tomorrow!

[Comments] (8) Annonymous Quote: "What, so there's a Black Forest in Germany?"

: It's a good thing I cleaned my room yesterday. I keep feeling slobish because my desk is so untidy, but then I turn around and and see the rest of my room and feel much better.

On the Home Front: All is well.

[Comments] (1) New family member: I talked to Anne for about a minute today. She called here accidently instead of mom's cell. But she did mention that Kristen had her baby! So that is the news incase you hadn't heard.
