so yeah but the ulysses book from botany library set their thing off lol
but whatever lol
yay for saving money and having a txtbook which wasnt actually referred to yet lol
Okay so the rest of the day was great.
But let's start from the end.
I'm riding the bus home.
I step off the bus.
Fish for my keys...
...NOT THERE. I HAVE LEFT MY WALLET ON THE BUS.
I turn around forlornly, and the bus has already long departed.
My legs are far too sore to run after it.
So...now I have:
no university ID
no library card
Computer Graphics 372 looks like it's going to be an interesting class. Lecturer is also german (like 372)!! omg. how itneresting lol maybe germany is the secret centre for this sort of tech. charming lectuer with charming accent GERMAN GErMAN
ok but like
372 is like the MASSIVE COMBINATION of all my papers lol
needs MATHS108 (vectors matrices differentiation)
needs COMPSCI101, 105, 220 (algorithms and analysis)
needs COMPSCI210 (C language)
and then 344 is like the other side, with the 230 JDBC stuff and WHOAMG i really should have paied much more attention last year cause we neeeed it lol
i think i saw joy on the bus.
i managed to get through 30 pages of ulysses by james joyuce. its supposed to be #1 novel in the world. its very hard to read i have to be concentrating. :s
=40 minute lapse==
Wallet retrieval mission: part 2
ok. so after being told that buses route back once they've done bucklands beach and stuff, i decided to wait @ the priestley drive busstop in the hopes that the bus will be the same one i rode
7:05 arrival. but unfortunatealy not the right bus (the bus i was on had the big orange lettering) but the nice bus driver informed me that buses on their way back from the bucklands beach route *never* go through priestley but go down buck;lands bch road instead. which makes sebnse. so he radioed the dude of the bus he thought i was on, and then let me down on the bucklands bch stop
wait like 20 seconds
bus arrives *tragedy* not the right driver or bus. told him this. he said its ok all driver clear their buses, call depot at 8pm.
so i will. i also sent them an email.

Went okay, I guess.
Well, it started okay; 4pm onwards was really frigging crappy. John Elmsly is a nice person yay!! but like lol he kept talking
and didnt stop
3:50, lecture not over
3:55 still not over
4:00 starting to fidget tons
4:05 i'm vry sorry i *really have to go*
RUN URNMRUNRUNRUN to bus!!! TAMAKITRANSFER!!!
ok. hey lets walk down to britomart and catch the train then maybe i can catch at least some of the lecture
oh lets not walk lets take that free city circuit that comes round
no, that's not it, that's the link bus
nope not this one either, but should be sson, because link buses are 10 minutes apart...
no...that's the next link bus...
.....another link bus...
FINALLY the stupid as City Circuit bus. (at this stage if i had decided to walk, I would already be at britomart)
ARGH delays on queen st.
arrr arrr ok trainstation
Glen Innes!.... it's 5:30
lecture has finished, I can see peopel getting into cars to go home.
long story short, i traded 5 minutes of politeness for one hour of my own personal loss and being very irritated. you would have thought I had already learnt this lesson from Choir in first year. but no. apparently i need to be taught it again. so from now on, i dont care if you're the fucking pope, if you're goign to talk past the 55 minute mark, it won't be to a full class cause i will be running my butt off to catch my next lecture which i find more important since you spent the entire hour telling me about oscillators and sine waves and stuff i already knew. i guess its nice
but i only wrote two definitions down in my book, Ring Modulator and LFO.
ok. so yeah. now i am one lecture bhind already. and its only the first day. i guess its only the first lecture so it's all adminny stuff but i missed out some RSI what the hell is RSI i'm going to have to look that up.
i donte even know if its RSI. thats how bad i dont know lol
ok. so yeah. then i go running. RUNNNN RUNRUNRUNRUN. Some simple facts about running:
1) I suck at it really bad. It's a fact.
2) Nikes are EXPENSIVE for a very good reason;
2a) they look cool
2b) they are comfortable
2c) my feet don't hurt at all. just, everything else....
3) no matter how much running gear and awesome shoes you buy, if you suck at running you suck at running lol
yay for holding other people back. :SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSssss
hope your first days didnt end with trading 5 minutes for an hour of pain ok bye

Why does this weird old asian lady from that number keep calling our house?
She asked if it's the residence of *indecipherable*.
I said no.
She then proceeded to ask "who lives here"
That begs the question "why do you care?"
Obviously, she is the one who called this number. If it isn't *indecipherable*'s house, hang up and don't call again.
She's called 3x so far.

guess what showed up on youtube recently
and while you're there, look at the related links of the other covers LOL
LOL @ the one which is 54 seconds long, cause her memory card could only fit 50 seconds and she didnt know it stopped lol

Why she called is probably what you want to know.
Well, I got invited back for a second interview for the Borders job. All right!
They also informed me they would be calling the references. I hope they call the ones on the application form first, and not my CV, since my CV has Philip who I never technically worked for, and Miss Rowbotham, which it's been years and y'know teachers, they get new people all the time and I doubt I'll be remembered.
But I told both anyway to be ready for the eventuality.
Alright. So yay, I guess I beat some people with a callback.
Anyway. Filling out that employee form, I had to use my University email again. I mean, how professional is email@example.com? Not very. firstname.lastname@example.org is only marginally better. email@example.com is better, but it sounds like a random collection of letters and words. Which I guess is partially true (about the numbers)
So I tried to get my own version of firstname.lastname@example.org (yes, Arron has that. What a pro. I should have thought of it when gmail just started out, but I didn't bother...)
email@example.com is taken.
firstname.lastname@example.org is taken.
email@example.com is taken.
firstname.lastname@example.org is taken.
email@example.com is taken.
firstname.lastname@example.org is taken.
email@example.com is taken.
firstname.lastname@example.org is mine.
The l looks like a divider. But it isn't. Fancy that.
I'm nervous. I hope I get the job.
(what to wear what t odo what to bring what what what what what I was in too sleepy a state to ask such questions arrrrr lol i'll bring a pen at least)
Friday, February 09, 2007

Last day of holiday programme work today YAY real cruisy got paid to fill water bombs and eat sausages and dip my feet in a swimming pool
OLDBOY. A very solid A movie. MAybe even A+ but i dunno. great twists, the lead dude is funny and crazy as hell, and its jsut the sort of movie that compells you to watch it. I don't think there was really a slow moment in the film and if there was, well, it was well made up for by the rest of it.
and the corridor fight scene - enough said.

instead of shellin out at LEAST 1000 dollars for a anywhere useful laptop, i paid 120 to get it fixxered. A replacement LCD screen cost $80, and labour cost $40. They also cleaned out my laptop and cleared the air filter (the dude showed me the dust inside, it was pretty mungus) so it shouldn't overheat any more fingers crossed yay for ASUS
