12:26 am - New Personal Best
I have the week off from classes. It is called "Reading Week", because A) it can't be "Spring Break" without any Spring and B) course requirements around here are such that reading is pretty much all that anybody will have time to do.

In the week following Reading Week (ergo, next week), I have a twenty-to-twenty-five-page paper due on Monday, a twenty-to-twenty-five-page paper due on Thursday and a five-page in-class presentation due on Friday.

Today I went to the library and set a new personal record, checking out fourty-six books over the course of one day. Large, heavy books. Large, heavy books with small print. At one point I was carrying -- without exaggeration -- thirty books at once, combining a backpack and four shopping bags with the sheer force of my will to pull off the task.

And I still don't have everything I need for one of the papers. So I'm going to need -- yes! -- more books.

Jesus I hate February. I hate February almost as hard as I hate November.

12:18 am - AUGH DEJA VU AUGH
Egads. That one seemed to last forever.

I was sitting here in front of the computer, writing out my review of the new Tragically Hip CD for the campus paper and mentally drawing up an analogy to AC/DC or to Pepsi (ergo, it's good but it's the same kinda unimpressive stuff as always and anyway if they tried to change it they'd probably just screw it up somehow); then, abruptly, I was smacked full upside the head by a bigass deja vu moment.

It lasted a couple seconds, and once I figured it had passed I thought to myself that I should write it down as part of my attempts to track a possible correlation between deja vu and sleeplessness. Then I remembered that I'd been failing to do that lately anyway, and I looked down from the computer screen to the CD case -- and the deja vu was still going. That weirded me right out, and then as part of the deja vu I remembered being weirded out by the deja vu moment continuing onward; it kind of snowballed for a couple of seconds before I just kind of turned the ol' brain off and made a point of not thinking about anything for a few seconds.

God. Damn. I've had deja vu before -- fairly frequently, at that -- but this time it walked directly into my brain and knocked shit over for easily half a minute or so. Freaky.

Anyway, if you're wondering, the new Tragically Hip album is good but nothing new. Also, Elvis Costello wrote a ballet and it's pretty good. So, hey! At least I'm passing along some handy information while I'm here.

current mood: weirded

10:45 pm - Good evening.
Hey there. How's it going. I am the most frequent LiveJournal updater alive.

I am also, at the moment, more bored than I think I have been in years.

Happy New Year.Collapse )

current mood: SO BORED

12:04 am - School Starts Tomorrow.
Bring it, school. You ain't got nothin'.

Also on tap for tomorrow, my audition for placement in the University of Manitoba Jazz Ensembles. Haven't practiced as much as I should, but tomorrow I'll sneak a few hours of bass in before the audition. 'Cause, hey, it's in the evening. Why not.

I rented WWE Day of Reckoning today and it is not altogether impressive. I don't know what THQ said to AKI to piss them off and make them leave, but I wish they would apologize for it. The whole genre's been nothing but downhill ever since; as though just to spite me, the far superior SmackDown: Here Comes the Pain caused the infamous grinding noise and threatened to nerf my PS2. Assholes.

Off to bed. Then, off to school. Bring it.

current mood: pff, hell if I know

6:25 am - Sad, Really.
As far as guilty pleasures go, this one is... uh... pretty guilty.Collapse )

Anyway. On an unrelated note -- thanks, dub! fishermansbuster (at-squiggly) gmail.com is now live, so if my other email addresses all mysteriously drop dead I'll be well taken care of.

current mood: triumphant
