smilingkat, halifax, happy

[PocketLJ] my day

so here I am, scribbling into my palm and writing what may simply be a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, and signifying nothing. It's late and I need sleep, but I feel up to rambling.

My mother is snoring in the next bed over. I don't know why I just said that, I guess I feel like sharing.

It was a good day for the most part. I seem to have aacquired, for the sum of US $4.00, a hardback copy of The Science of Discworld, by Terry Pratchett, Ian Stewart, & Jack Cohen. Not only have I got this book, but it is signed by at least the latter two authors. I really like the Berkeley Library Store. (This isn't the first time I've found something cool there--my first time ever, I found a first American edition of Colour of Magic for $1.00. I later watched Pterry sign it, and it is now a treasured book.)

I also bought an authentic tie dyed shirt from a vendor on Telegraph. And, to surprise Patrick on our five month anniversary, I bought a phone card, and called him from the OCF server room in Barrows.

I later met up with Luns, and he came to dinner with Mom and me. We ate at Spaghetti Factory in Jack London Square. And then we watched trains. (The trains at JLS run right down the middle of the road, which scares Mom.)

So yeah, all in all, it was a *great* day, with only a few minor stormclouds. Wish I was here for good.

So, that's about it. I should make Patrick happy by going to bed. It is now 1:11 AM here.

[PocketLJ] going home

well, I'm on my way home now. Today was a productive day. I started in Berkeley about 1 this afternoon, and did the following:

I ran into Joyce, who lived with me in Stern. We talked for a while about grad skewl and life. Then I went to ask Phil (the SIMS advisor) about what numbers I had to enter. After that, I walked up to I-House by way of Haas, and took pictures. After finally getting I-House to take my credit card (funny, it finally worked when I brought them the card...), I wandered down to Sproul and turned in my financial aid forms. I then stopped by DSP, got a new Cal photo ID (which includes the all important word), and inquired into the cost of Cal football season tickets.

Last, I stocked up on blue jolt, and went to Cody's. There I bought American Gods, a book by the late Stephen Jay Gould, and a book on Java graphics classen.

It wasn't a bad trip. The most exciting part was the vibrating tire we got near Willows. and I saw my sister's apartment in Davis, that was neat.

We're dropping into Cottonwood now. So you'll be seeing this soon.
