So I survived my two tests on Monday, hopefully passed them too. We'll see. A few more days until spring break, which will be a whole lot of needed nothingness. Talked to Viking about maybe living in his house, and he said there might be room, so that's a good thing, because I need to solidify this living situation thing soon, as well as searching for a job and an internship. I just hope I don't procrastinate this too much.

BTW, the new Destroyer album is pretty much perfect.

So it's been a while since I've written anything of substance, and for that I am truly sorry. This is going to be the weekend/Monday from hell. Class until5 ish on Saturday, and work until 1:30. Then on Sunday, we have a session booked from 10am-10pm at Ocean Way, but hopefully it won't last that long. And of course, on Monday, I have two huge tests in Analytics and Maintainence which I won't get to study for as much as I would like. I already started on the Maint. stuff, but really, I'm sure I'm going to fail that anyways. There's so much crap in Analytics, that's probably what I'll spend Saturday night cramming for. Synapses. Glial cells. etc... And then write the out of class part. woot.

I'll be glad when this is over and I get to leave for SC for spring break. I've never really needed a spring break before, but this year, it's very, very welcomed.

Sigur Ros, Ryman Auditorium, 2/14/06

So that was amazing. They started out with the whole shadows on the curtain thing, which I saw a video of prior to the concert, so I waited in eager anticipation for that to happen. We happened to have seats in the very back row of the balcony, but the view wasn't bad at all. It was ameliorated by seeing that Ben Folds had to sit in the balcony section too, stupid fedora and all. They played a lot more from ( ) than I thought they would, but I'm not complaining. The first song was Glosoli, which was awesome, but I just wish that they'd played it live with the video, because that would have given me chills. They played Olsen Olsen, which is my favorite song, so I was the guy who was cheering as soon as they triggered the sample of Jonsi singing the melody. That song is so beautiful, I'm surprised it didn't get more of a response. Who knows. Anyways, it was a great concert, and a great Valentine's Day.

Ballz uses the word "analogous"...
Kyle wrote this to the Belmont paper after the Sexy Decoys were written about in it. Glorious.

Dear Vision Editor,

In your recent article concerning intermural sports, I was deeplyconcerned to see one glorious dynasty viewed in a bad light. As theonly graduating member of the Sexy Decoys(tm)Inc I must tell you thatI was extremely displeased with the way you portrayed all of our hardwork and total domination of Belmont Intermural sports. With the spotlight turned to the newly formed "sticky bandits", the point spread differential was one obvious detail left out of the article.
Currently, the Sexy Decoys have 3+ times the points of their nearestcompetition, the Sticky Bandits. Even with the obvious conflict of interest that is the intermural referee system, the Sexy Decoys have all but secured their 2nd straight Bruin Cup. Back to the article, we did not appreciate being compared to "the big guy" in prison who sodomizes small "new guys in prison". Even though our current domination of the intermural world seems analogous to a stitches-inducing prison rape, we do not want it compared in any way to such an act. Please consider this our forma lstatement.

Decoys Graduating Senior,
Ballz(Kyle Duquette)

The Scariest Thing in Illinois...

Bonus points for identifying it.

So, in honor of my 21st birthday, my grandfather sent me a bag of old Halloween candy. That's it.

Thanks, Gil.
