The joke is that the perceived disloyalty in my peers turns out to be my own

As you likely know I returned to Berkeley on Sunday night. After a delayed flight and a missed door-to-door shuttle, I arrived back in my apartment at about midnight. After a few hours spent unpacking, re-assembling my guitar (thanks to my dad for the ingenious idea of taking it apart and packing the parts separately in my suitcase -- why didn't I do this sooner?), and trying unsuccessfully to sleep, I awoke at 7AM for my 8:00 class. It does not kick ass to be me this summer.

In any case, as I came back I started to wonder why I had barely seen any of my friends from Berkeley online the whole summer. I felt a little bad about that, like maybe nobody loves me or my friends all suck. But then I realized that it's just because I completely forgot to use Skype at all this whole summer.

Google's quote of the day:

I know who I am. No one else knows who I am. If I was a giraffe, and someone said I was a snake, I'd think, no, actually I'm a giraffe.

-- Richard Gere

All I could think of was that it would have been so much funnier had he mentioned gerbils instead.

Congratulations Peter on your official promotion from semi-professional internet humourist to humourist!

The big question for my first full day as a 24-and-one-month-year-old:

Should I wear socks today?

ping keepalive

I've been really busy for the last month because my sister, nephew, and brother-in-law took up a tonne of my time (and space in the house). On top of that, my DS Lite keeps me occupied as well. As such I haven't had that many idle moments to write. Now that they're all gone, I don't have the energy for it either. But in case you were worried, I am currently alive and well.

I am also currently very boring and so reading about my life would probably not entertain you. Instead of trying, I'll share some videos that have kept me entertained in my numb lethargy.

In conversation with Dickolas (Random quotes from five minutes ago, provided without context)

it looks like someone is preparing to paint Warhammer figurines

only there's a man with girlie junk sitting in front of your equipment

That was very apt.

I know

Disturbingly apt.

I know

Don't ever say that again.
I like to think I'm a communicator
