It was my first day of class today. Turned out to be pretty good despite the fact that the rain was coming down in huge torrential waves which managed to soak my shoes, socks, and jeans all the way up to mid thigh. Bio promises to be boring. My Hist 346 class looks like it will be good, the professor is absolutely adorable in that grey suit and sweater vest dorky teacher kind of way. He even has the thick black rimmed glasses. He looks so ridiculously proper that (and Hardeep is going to kill me for this) I kept imagining him in leather pants at a rock concert or something crazy like that. Needless to say he cracked me up, though I'm sure the people around me wondered why I was grinning like a lunatic and stifling my laughter. My next Hist 321 teacher seems arrogant, he looks like someone but I can't figure out who. This class looks like it might be more difficult, there are a lot of graduate students in this one but it shouldn't be too bad. Except for teh fact that I have 3 midterms on the same day. Its going to be a hell of a week. After my first 3 classes I had a nice 2 hour break which meant I could go home and put on dry clothes, though when I went out for my Phil 502 class they just got soaked again. Particularly since there was a 3 inch deep puddle at the foot of the stairs leading to the HUM building. I want rain boots dammit, I just can't find any in my size. Besides reorganizing the apartment and searching for a job this weekend rain boots are a priority. All the ones I've found online say they run large and you should order a size down but since they start and 5 and I haven't been able to find kids boots in my size it's turning into quite teh conundrum. Monday should be interesting as I am currently wait listed for my HIst 300 seminar, however I'm second on the list and as long as it's not a small ass classroom I should be able to add just fine.

Not a bad day except Hardeep went home for the weekend. Oh well lets me get organized on my own time.

'Shut Up' Chavez Ringtone Hit in Spain

By MAR ROMAN – 18 hours ago

MADRID, Spain (AP) — Many Spaniards were so amused when their king told Venezuela's president to "shut up" they want to hear the words every time their phone rings.

About half a million people have downloaded a mobile phone ringtone featuring the phrase "Por que no te callas?" or "Why don't you shut up?" leading Madrid daily El Pais reported on its Web site Monday.

That's what King Juan Carlos told Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez during a heated confrontation at a summit in Chile last week.

The ringtone is thought to have generated around $2.2 million for the companies selling it, El Pais said.

T-shirts and mugs featuring the words are also becoming a profitable business, and videos of the confrontation have been a hit on the YouTube Web site.

Chavez's opponents in Venezuela are no less obsessed.

Pirated copies of the quote have been popping up in the South American country.

In Venezuela, T-shirts with the slogan in Spanish have the "NO" in uppercase — a call for voting against constitutional reforms that would significantly expand Chavez's power. The Venezuelan leader says the changes would empower neighborhood-based assemblies and advance the country's transition to socialism.

"The king said what Venezuelans have wanted to say to Chavez's face for a long time," said Jenny Romero, 21, a student sporting one of the T-shirts in Caracas. "I'm wearing this T-shirt to protest everything bad that has happened in the country."

The spat last week began when Chavez repeatedly called former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar a "fascist."

Spain's current prime minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, asked Chavez to be more diplomatic and show respect for other leaders. As Chavez repeatedly tried to interrupt, King Juan Carlos leaned forward and said: "Why don't you shut up?"


 


Yes please why doesn't someone make him shut the fuck up?


 


 

love

If there is one statement I hate most in this world it probably is "I love you too". Now don't get me wrong, "I love you" is one of the most amazing, wonderful things that can come out of someones mouth but I hate that TOO. It is the most undemonstrative word in the entire english language. Unfortunately it seems, particularly in this day and age, that such exuberant phrase like, I love you completely, entirely, and wholeheartedly do not leap easily off the tongue. I can't stand how completely unresponsive the phrase I love you too, makes me feel. Particularly when it's coming out of my mouth. Yes I know how rediculous this entire post is but I feel like this is something worth writing about. Or rather I felt like it was worth writing about last night but was too lazy to get my butt out of bed and type this out.

Sep. 17th, 2006

It's been a while since I've bothered to write anything down, I don't know why, it just seems like nothing is really all that interesting right now. School is going well yadda yadda ya, blah blah blah, why do I even bother with this bullshit. God I sound like Hardeep in all of his old entries about how he was going to delete his journal but never did. I guess LJ sort of died, fucking myspace. There was a lot I wanted to say, none of which I remember right now. ehhhh, whatever.

I guess the biggest thing in my life is that I decided I want to go to SFSU next year. I'm excited, I've always loved San Francisco, it reminds me of my grandmother and how much she loved living in SF and all the things she use to do and the plays and the places she would take me to. How she always wanted to take my family to the cheesecake factory but never did because the waiting time was always 2 or 3 frickin hours. It still makes me smile and think about it everytime I go to the cheesecake factory. Weird, it's the odd things that you remember.


But yeah not much to really talk about I suppose. Oh well

YAY for me

I turned in my 2 weeks notice monday. Print can go fuck himself. He fired Steven which makes everybody sad. Asshole

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

I feel like all I've been doing is going to work. I know that this is not true since I went to Tahoe this weekend with Hardeep and his family but it still feels so monotonous I just want to scream. I think everyone at work does, it seems like everyone is stressed out and wants to quit. It's Print's fault, honestly I know this sounds like the usual worker grumbling but it's true. They haven't been able to keep anyone for a long period of time since Print became manager. He's such an ass.

Oh well enough grumbling. I'm off tomorrow, I fully intend on enjoying it.

random realizations while in the shower

Sometimes I feel really out of proportion...is that weird?

I think I lose at life

I don't want to be irritated. I'll say something I'll regret. It's not the time for foolish pride, or is that all that I have except for him? Maybe. I'm afraid.
