*tears* 

A name and a destiny from the distant past are about to be fulfilled.

The Serpent Holder will walk the earth again, but not in a form any of
the Order of the Phoenix are prepared for. It is a fight for life and
freedom amongst the pawns and puppets as the Order and the Death
Eaters enter into a race to find an ancient Selenai artifact – the one
Voldemort has hungered after for decades. In the midst of this, an
unlikely alliance is formed when Arienne Jacobs learns that Severus
Shape shares more of her secret heritage than she imagined. Together
the two Professors return to Egypt, Arienne’s childhood home, in an
attempt to seek out the Serpent, unaware that they are being propelled
by malevolent forces more ancient and powerful than Voldemort could
ever wish to be.


I need to start writing my own stuff. Lord.


You scored as Rogue. Rogue is a strong but tragic personality. She loves Gambit. Because of her mutant powers, she cannot touch anyone without hurting them. Therefore, she longs for human contact.

How about that. 

I finished my first ever real serious actual true crossword. I feel strangely accomplished.

What's it like being at WORK?

PS. I CALL SHOTGUN.


There's a fucking cricket outside my window. 

In the fucking city. Go figure. Did you know that counting the number of creeks they make in ten seconds and adding like, 4 to the total tells you the temperature in degrees Celcius? True story.

I spent this evenin' chillin with my homes. Kelly first, then bocks neil j-cup and what seemed like half our graduatin' class. Saka showed up for a bit too. Huzzah, etc. It's nice to go out, especially when I am basically broke. I have never been really broke before. It's actually kind of scary. But all it really means to me is that I drink less. It sure puts things in perspective, particularly regarding people who maybe don't have enough cash to EAT.

Saturday we hit Killbear. I made about 100 million cookies to give to the fine folk up there. I miss them a lot, actually. It's going to be hell of nice to see them again. I'm glad they'll mostly be in Toronto come september.

I have surprisingly little to say, considering I haven't aped in nigh on two weeks. Um, I'm pretty intoxicated. Umm, I'm playing Jade Empires. Ummm, I bought a book of dirty songs and they rock. Ummmm, that's it.

Exam time wordplay 

Apparently all those cans of Red Bull I drank in the past 24 hours have been good for something.

This morning on an exam (image processing) I was asked to define the "affine transformation". I wrote.

The affine transformation... is a fine transformation indeed!


That was witty, now give me your pity.

Wrote another one this evening. I think I probably used the "20% if you write that you don't know" rule a little too much for my own good; I think I'm looking at a maximum of a 70%. Christ, summer courses were supposed to be easy.

Making A Good First Impression 

So there was a new person at work today. Nice girl, quite a bit younger then I thought she was (turns out she's going into grade 12). I learnt a valuable lesson about making first impressions.

Strike One: I was wearing what Sam calls my "pink shirt" though it's actually mauve (or mo-av, as I call it). Now there's nothing wrong with this colour, but it sets the stage for later events.

Strike Two: I was looking up U of T clubs that we could solicite volunteers on and she happened to come in when I was looking up LGBTOUT (aka Insane Clown Posse).

Strike Three: Later on, she came into the other office with one of those new white cans of vanilla coke.
Me: "Omigod, I love it! It's so retro!"
Her: Yeah... I like Coke with Lime as well.
Me: It's good, I like coconut coke.
Her: They make that?
Me: Well... malibu rum-and-coke.
Her: Isn't that a girly drink?

(actually there are 2 strikes in there which would put the total at 4)

On a related topic, here's a photo-essay on the childhood of Jason Mulgrew. There's a fun blog in there which you can peruse at your leisure. This one is my favourite, though it's a little different then the normal tone of the blog (which involves drinking and failing to get women).


Harper Hits Toronto 

The original Newfie joke himself, Rick Mercer, has a really funny little bit entitled Harper Hits Toronto.
The Tory caucus gathered in Toronto last week for a miniature policy retreat and something truly shocking happened; policy was announced.

This is a big departure for the Conservatives and it could have severe consequences. If they keep this up people might confuse them with a national party.

Ehehehe.


Great TV 

On Saturday, Global News ran a story about two best friends from Toronto who are going to get married. Both guys are straight and have had failed marriages to women before. They said that it made financial sense to get married, I guess they can save on their taxes. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about this but in the end I figured that people have been entering sham marriages for millenia but at least these guys admit it. People have been married for worse reasons.

What does everyone else think?


There are two TV shows starting soon that I'm really looking forward to. The first, Everybody Hates Chris about Chris Rock's childhood in Brooklyn. The second is Tommy Lee Goes to College, this is the Tommy Lee Of Motley Crue fame. Here's the premise from official (or unofficial I can't tell) website:

"The premise is simple, but genius. Put a world famous bad-ass rock star like Tommy Lee (Motly Crue) in college and see what the hell happens. It's a recipe for absolute halirity. The show's producers have spared no aspect of the normal college experience, as Tommy has a roommate, Matt, and an incredibly smokin' hot tutor named Natalie. Tommy has a full class load like any other college student and must balance academia with extra-ciriculuars a.k.a. beer bonging at various frat houses. The show follows very little 'goal' or 'premise' for that matter, its a true 'reality' show in that sense. Basically just sit back and watch what happens as this forty-two year old, two time divorce and father of two tries to get a higher education."
