My roommate is an alien.
It's 3 AM, and no sane person should be awake...and she is. At least, I can see the light under her door, and I heard the door squeak several times when I was in the bathroom enjoying my shower.
And she'll be back up at six to go to classes.
Not human. :)
[What am I doing up? Well, first of all, I never said I was sane, and second of all, I'm working on the homework problem from hell. Mainly trying to figure out this program that implements RSA so I can test it. Although at four, I might go to sleep for a couple hours, because my manic-depressiveness is not going to tolerate an all-nighter.]
RSA encryption is fscking complicated.
And Glushko is still playing favourites.
Yeah. it sucks.

...painfully slow, but...
homework is nearing completion...and it's only 3 hours late at the moment...
I wonder if the TMBG concert guys would let me have my laptop in the club. It'd be a way to get homework done.
waiting on a data run, sorta trying to pay attention in class. It's not holding my interest. Granted, I'm half-asleep too.
I like Brian, and he's doing his best, and he took a lot of time to help me out on Friday, and I owe him.
It's the other instructor I'm not so fond of.
You've seen me mention Glushko around. I'm pretty annoyed with him. Because it's obvious he plays favourites. And it's obvious that I'm not one of his favourites. He can't even manage to acknowledge that I exist. I first noticed this last Thursday at Parker's attempt at disproving that there's no such thing as a free lunch. (He rolled out the barbecue and grilled food left over from Cal Day.)
Well, Glushko was there. He smoozes with students. And he repeatedly pulled people aside to talk to them. But when I attempted to get into a general conversation he was holding with somebody else, he proceeded to ignore anything I said. And so I've been watching and seeing him in the labs, and he'll go talk to other students, but he's not said a word to me. Not a single word. Not even 'hi'. Grr. It really bothers me and something needs to be done.
So...what do I do now? does anybody have any advice? How do I let him know that he's not being fair?
Then again, I'm not a true disciple of the XML way, so there's probably no hope for me.
