Those of you who know me well, I have certain peculiarities. For example, I refuse to leave a message on an answering machine or voice mail, and if a roommate or family member picks up, I never leave a message with them. Ever. Also, when people ask me to call them back, I either call them back on the hour for a few hours, or I call them in 3-4 weeks. I have no good explanation for any of these odd behaviors.
My weirdness is not limited to the phone. Attendance is another issue. If I am running more than 10 minutes late for a class, I will opt to not go at all rather than show up late. I got to Temple 15 minutes late today.
I was not really awake enough earlier in the day to notice, but a few minutes after I figured I was late, I realized either my allergies were beating the heck out of me, or I am getting sick. Let's hope for the former, people. I don wanna be sick.
The above was relevant, really. See, after I realized that I would not be attending class today, I went to Paley Library. Why? There is not all that much to do when you have an unexpected free 1.5 hours and you do not know anyone else taking summer courses on Temple's campus. So, I went to scan through a few books upstairs. They were all pretty lame, and I felt completely self-conscious because I was sniffling while everyone else on the floor was so quiet you could hear a pin drop.
I made some decent progress on my RSS feed aggregator. It really should have been finished a week or two ago, but I have only been working on it for short periods of time. All in all, it looks pretty lame and hackish right now. Of course, lame and hackish is better than non-existent, like most of my projects end up being.
Apparently, I owe T-Mobile $400+. It seems as though I am also overdue with this bill, as they have gotten a collection agency to start calling my parents' house. The whole matter is a bit ridiculous, though, as I have never done business with T-Mobile, or any other phone company. My name is not even on the bill for our ground line.
Sitting around and doing nothing for hours on end is tedious. Human interaction is a great thing. That being said, if anyone finds themselves not busy between the hours of 1:00pm and 5:30pm, I would appreciate it if you could send emails to
I take forever to write these things. That was not too much, but I started it 25 minutes ago. I feel like I am forgetting something, but this entry is long enough already and I have to leave. So be it.
