God Damn I'm Lazy.
I was hungry so I decided to have a turkey bacon sandwich, on a bagel. In the process of unraveling the bacon packaging an idea popped into my head. Why not make a bacon quilt and just put it into the microwave like that. It'll cook more evenly and it'll be easier to put onto the bagel. That's exactly what I did.

I haven't touched this in a while.
A lot has been going on.
I've written "blog" on my to do list everyday for the past week and haven't gotten around to actually writing in it. I find it easy to get my priorities in order by putting everything on a piece of graph paper and folding it up and putting it in my pocket. I've begin to love my Rhodia N°18 Notepad, it's bright orange and contains A4 sized graph paper, perfect for writing down notes.
Next week, I have mid-terms. We then have friday and next monday (21st) off. I finally have school in order, the solution? Just get your work done and you'll be fine, it doesn't take much more effort than that. Grades reflect it.
This is Day 11 of Project 365
It is now Day 12 of project 365 and I'm beginning to understand the challenge. It is so hard to come up with creative ideas, some days it just isnt flowing. In other news, I was written up in two blogs this week in three posts. I also have a photo in the Urbanite - What You're Writing. The Links are Below.
Also, I figured out address bar icons. They are called favicons. If you notice, my icon isn't the normal Blogger B. To change yours create a 16x16 icon, save it as a bmp and rename it favicon.ico Then upload it to a site like imageshack.us or your own FTP server. Place this code in the blogger "edit html" section. Click the link below to see the code, blogger won't let you embed it.
Change the link to wherever you're hosting it from, save changes
and you're good to go.
Glad to be back, Expect More Soon.
I started the new year with a new project.
Ill start taking at least a picture a day for 365 days and by this time next year, I'll be able to look back on all of it. I'd like to thank Keith Morrison for the idea, He's a photographer on a forum I read. Check out his work at

A little aside, the reason I haven't been blogging much lately is due to the fact that I have mononucleosis. I was out for an entire week of school before my winter break. I'll be very busy this week because I need to catch up on school so don't expect to see many posts. Happy New Year, '08 will be good.
Winter is setting in, I am continually refreshing noaa.gov's results for my zipcode looking for the slightest chance of a snowstorm in the forecast. Snow is a godsend, when we actually DO get it here in baltimore. It's a chance to get off from school and play outside. An excuse to not care what you look like, or how puffy your jacket is, just because its there. I love it. Third year in a row, I'll probably go snowboarding at Roundtop with Chello.
In other news, my mom got an iphone for christmas (an early present) and it's fantastic. It is so much fun to fiddle around with. It'll be amazing for long trips where I'll have internet access anywhere we go. I do have to say, it's a bit pretentious, for example, saying "where is my iphone" or when you send an email it says "sent from my apple iphone" Also, I have a sore throat and am never feeling 100% anymore.
That is a panorama I did earlier today. All of the warmer air previously trapped in by the clouds was quickly escaping into space. The sky was a deep blue and the wind was blowing.
And as for the other word in my post title, I found in my analytics that 2.1% of my blog readers are from Hungary....Welcome! And welcome to the 3.1% of readers in the UK as well!
MPK, a company that has made a name producing glow-in-the-dark paint, has developed self-luminous micro particles called Litrospheres. The new material is said to be inexpensive (35 cents to light up a 8 ½ x 11 piece of plastic that is 1/8" thick), non-toxic, and capable of staying constantly lit for over 12 years thanks to a betavoltaic technology that uses a radioactive gas.
The Litrospheres, which can be injected molded or added to paint, are not affected by the heat or cold and they can withstand up to 5000 pounds of pressure. They can also give off light that is equivalent of a 20-watt incandescent bulb in almost any color imaginable. As you might expect, the first applications of the technology will most likely involve safety equipment—or the clothing and accessories of frequent clubgoers. [Wiki via Gizmodo]
Cool Beans. And no, it is not harmful to your health.
Today I was in the holiday Spirit. Ornaments were taken down from the attic, television was watched, a tree was brought into the house, wreaths were hung, candles were lit, and lights were strung. There is something about hanging ornaments on a fresh tree that can not be matched. Maybe it's the fact that they are something you see for a month of the year and no longer. Every year you unwrap the ornaments like gifts. It's also the first tree I've had since Christmas of 2002.
I got an early "holiday" present, an iPod 80GB Classic in silver with an iSkin EVO 4 Duo case. My only grudge is with the case, the silcone on the clickwheel makes the iPod a little bit unresponsive, and I couldn't deal with it. So I took matters into my own hands and just cut the silicone out, it's perfect, I am more than satisfied with it. Thanks Dad.
Because of the new acquirement, I legally ;) downloaded a bunch of electronica and hip-hop. Favorites include Milosh , Lali Puna, and Quantic. Lil Wayne is good too.
I also have a new Project starting the first of the month, for the entire year of 2008, I will take a picture a day. Not of anything in specific but of anything I come across. Project 365
The R1AA Cant Touch. P1R4AT3 For Life.
My mom dropped my powerbook from about 6 feet up, it was an accident but I am really angry about it.
Everything seems to be okay, none of the hard drive platters were damaged but the screen flickers a lot more when the laptop gets moved around. And the front of the case is just completely messed up.
And it's still coming down as of 3:06PM, I'm still feeling crappy and I learned a new spanish word. Muy Linda, which means very pretty. I want it to snow forever, at least until march...I've probably looked outside more times today than I did in all of november.
Do I smell a two hour delay?
