smilingkat, halifax, happy

Well...

I want to tell you about the CounterClock, but that would involve explaining Luns. And Luns takes more than five minutes to write about.

So you'll just have to wait until tomorrow to hear the story of Luns and the CounterClock.

No news on the housing front.

I think I'm going to try to sleep.

PS: somebody messaged my yahoo account and said:
[23:06] vfrtrty: berkeley ... DAMN, girl... beuaty AND a brain?
A year ago, I would have suggested he get his eyes checked or wondered actively if he was trying to get in my pants, now I can sit back, smile and say, "My SO would agree with you."

PPS: my Canadian provencial quarters shipped today. :)

My day...

has been spent waiting for UPS. Which was a waste, it turns out, the University finally decided to give College-Durant access to the reshall mailroom, so we don't have to sit here all day.

anyway, on September 11th, 2002, a domain name I am associated with (with the unfortunate name of jihad.net) got mentioned on the worldwide news. And there's a very long thread on Free Republic about the whole thing. How odd it was to poke through that thread and be confronted again with the words I wrote shortly after September 11th, 2001, and hear it being called a "PR flack" by the Freepers. Ah well, ye can't win 'em all.

And it turns out CBS news referred to "jehad.net", not us. But jehad and jihad are pronounced exactly the same. Oops.

Anyway, I'm going to go see what I can see on Telegraph Ave... so, write more later.
