Quickies

Parents came and went. We went out to nice restaurants for most of the weekend. My mother, of course, spent the whole time we were in said restaurants bitching about how expensive this was going to be. She finally realized this afternoon at our early Easter dinner she sounds a lot like her mother. :p

Spent most Saturday doing graphics homework, and most of today driving around.

I discovered today that the Jeep (Cherokee, for those who don't know) is perfectly happy being in water up to (if not covering) its front bumper. (At least, it's happy enough for a minute or so. More than a couple minutes doesn't bear thinking about.)

So. If you want to diss American cars, fine (I'll probably even agree with you at least half the time). But don't you dare diss Jeeps in my presence. :P [Now watch as I get 32,768 comments talking about how Jeeps are crappy cars that break down after only 42 miles. ;P]

Instead of doing Calculus (which I half-finished), I'm eating soup and finishing off the last of a bottle of wine my parents brought down.

I'm tired. When's the weekend?

Oh, wait... :p

Edit: Oh yeah, also forgot to mention I sent out my formal "sorry, I can't do this anymore" email to the other GLBU officers. I've managed to be at maybe half a meeting total this quarter, which just doesn't cut it for someone who's supposed to be a club officer. I blame school.

Well, don't you sound like a contented Des! I think wine should always come before homework.

Oh, and I would never diss a Jeep. I've always wanted a nice little Jeep Wrangler. They are soo cute! The only American car I will bitch about is the Ford POS that I drive. I dislike that car and have since the moment I bought it. But I got such a great deal on it, I felt I couldn't really refuse (my Dad was service manager for 25 years at our local Ford dealer, so we still get family discounts) but I've regretted it ever since. The next new car won't be a Ford (even though I would love a 'Tang convertible. *le sigh*). /car rant

Hehe... they are cute. I think I like my Cherokee better than the Wrangler, though, because (at least subjectively) it seems more stable than most other SUVs.

Yeah... I'm not a big fan of teh Ford, either. I've heard too many horror stories about crappy transmissions and shoddy workmanship. Having driven my ex's Explorer Sport on many occasions, those stories don't seem to be exaggerations.

On the other hand, everyone I've ever talked to who owns a Jeep (a number of whom have had their Jeeps for over 10 years) was quite happy with it. So as much as people like to rag on American car manufacturers, I just don't think their arguments apply to Jeeps.

Good for you for making more room in your schedule for fun things like calculus. I mean it has to be fun, right? Why else would we pay this much for it? At the rate I'm going, ochem is the equivelent of a drug induced high. lol, and I think they both kill brain cells (and this time I'm not even talking about the fumes in lab).
Did you have a pleasent easter? I glucose-overdose.

Oh, undoubtedly. It's a well-established fact that I can do Calculus better when I'm only half-awake, thus demonstrating that brain cells are toxic to Calculus. If brain cells are toxic to Calculus, then Calculus must also be toxic to brain cells. Or something. ;P

Or you subconciously understand calculus to a level that thinking just gets in the way.
