April 30, 2004

I always whine about how I don’t get any dates, but then when a guy does ask me out, he’s never the type of guy that I want to date. It happened to me again today, via email and I don’t know how to respond. I am so low on the food chain, that I get almost nothing good, but then what else am I supposed to do?

Not that I watch American Idol or really care about it, but this article at CNN struck as amusing. It states, “The winner gets a recording contract and instant fame.” How exactly does the instant fame part work? Is it like instant rice, just add to water and boil? Or is there REALLY a giant television-political-alien conspiracy and someone decides who gets fame and who doesn’t. No fame for you today!

I saw a bizarre looking car accident today. Somehow the car jumped the curb, very high and landed into the side of a building, a garage, I think. But the weird thing was that the car was parallel to the road and the front tires were about 2 feet off the ground and the rear tires were 4 feet off the ground. I approached it from the rear and it seemed that the car was floating in midair, just off to the side of the road. I wonder how it happened. I didn’t have a camera and there were a few cops there, so I didn’t stop, but I am just fascinated by it. I don’t think anyone was hurt, assuming there was no on on the passenger side, where I guess there was some damage. One more thing, it was across from a High School, I’m not sure if that is related or not.

Randomly following blogs can be fun. From one of them, I reached the backwards Stairway to Heaven which really does seem like Led Zeppelin has secret lyrics. Evil . . .

Today was Free Cone day at Ben and Jerry’s and I got the Dublin Mudslide on a sugar cone. It was very yummy, though it is a limited time flavor. I know that they support important causes, but all I really care about is the ice cream. This was my 9th annual visit, let’s hope next year makes it ten!

I hate the campus email system at Berkeley. It is awful. It keeps giving me an alert that I am over the disk quota, which is because a large message I sent bounced and now is sitting in my inbox. But it won’t let me get to my inbox to delete it, all it does is to send me in circles telling me I am over the quota. Great. Someday, if I get out of email hell, I will go back to writing my thesis. At least I will have a real job soon. Sadly, it really makes me long for Pine, when things were straightforward.

Have I mentioned that I am addicted to watching TV? I have been paying for cable even though I did have much money, partially because I wouldn’t get the broadcast stations clearly, but when I think about it, there are very few stations I would be willing to give up, most of them are the foreign language ones. I spend too much of my time at Television Without Pity and it gets me through the day. I can even rationalize it by thinking that I spend less total time by only reading the recaps of shows, instead of the hour watching the program.

I heard the rumor about being an “active” member gets you access to Gmail, so here is my attempt to post often.
