I think I've expressed my loathing for UPS here before, but I think this is the most I have ever wanted to blow them to tiny tiny pieces. I've been struggling with their tendency to not deliver my packages to my apartment ever since I moved in here and they've been resolutely completely unhelpful. But after my seething rage over my monitor...

Or you can get it done so that once sex is on the menu there's no "Sorry, honey, no sex for x days" period.

Every pharmacist who hears about my semester immediately says "Physics is SUCH a waste of time!" Gee, thanks.

Not all that much new with me in the last several months. I'm enjoying my apartment's location and design a lot, although I wish the building weren't quite so hot. I can counteract that now that my A/C unit has been unsealed, but of course that costs money. I've taken advantage of the extra space to host a small group...

Nope, MCTC. Doing pre-reqs there to save money.

Yeah it's really cool, and easy to get around on public transportation.

I am still around, although my days of posting regularly to either blog or boards are apparently over. Also, I'm moving on Saturday. I knew it had to happen one of these days. This place is just too small for me and it wasn't really intended to be a long term living arrangement, so I've long missed things like having my own...

Ah, whoops. Fail. Sounds like a nice arrangement.
otoki:
Plus it's near a busline. So at least going to MCTC will be easy.

In more exciting news, the third edition of Nobilis approaches at long, long last. This makes me so very happy, and I immediately preordered the limited, signed edition that's available here. Why? Well, Nobilis is almost certainly the best RPG ever made. Don't get me wrong, it's not going to supersede your D&D or your Shadowrun or your Vampire or whatnot...

Maybe they want a chance in hell to be re-elected.

I know it's good that I used my cards, and I plan on continuing to do so. I'm just mad I used them beyond my means.

Isn't Dayton partnering with Bachmann on that stupid Stillwater bridge?

This whole budget crisis thing is driving me absolutely crazy. Not only do I work for the government, meaning that every spending cut might cost me my job or make me work harder for the same money, but the sheer ludicrous fuckedness of the priorities is making me incandescent with rage. We've clearly got to cut $1 billion in funding for healthcare, education, and...

Fuck.

I was thrilled while listening to NPR's report about Dayton vetoing that stupid Republican bill. Let's hope the "compromise" is somewhat helpful for our state.

You know, it's amazing to me just how many facets of the world my 17-year-old self was blithely oblivious to. I mean, I thought about things like food and towels and bedding and furniture and places to live, but only in passing, as things that, for the most part, were simply there and not my concern. I was occasionally asked to take an interest...

I will check that out.

Meh, the only thing I really like from Pizza Luce is their spaghetti with veggie balls.
otoki:
Oh yeah? I haven't visited that site. I think I have a higher success rate than some because I'm ONLY looking for friends, so there's no uncertainty there.

Like many people, I've kind of lost interest in WoW until the Cataclysm rolls in. That said, I got a chance to roll with a very good friend's elite WoW raid team this weekend in Ulduar. Result: I got the Firefighter achievement and, shinier still...the Starcaller title. Yessirree, I have successfully defeated Algalon. This pleases me. If I can swing one more...

I'm in no hurry to play cat or dungeons, but it would be nice to have the laptop playable.

Here's the problem: I'm going to be working my ass off until the wedding, and since there really aren't any viable options for me in MPLS right now, that means working almost every weekend in Fargo. I'll have a Friday available in two weeks so I may make it to that one. Text me closer to the date and I'll let you know whether I'm staying i town or not.

I'd been eyeing an HTC Evo even before they came out, but when they did I wasn't yet eligible for an upgrade and anyway they'd sold out everywhere. With more time and attention paid, I became a bit more skeptical, and now that I'd become eligible, it was starting to look like upgrading was going to be more expensive and less...

Seriously. I'm getting really annoyed because most of my friends aren't having the same problems.
otoki:
I think it's because tons of people aren't experiencing any problems at ALL. Most of my WoW buddies haven't had any crashes after switching some settings around.

My problems are usually during flight, particularly flight over/in a large city like Shattarath.

Up way too late, doing a For the Horde group for the umpteenth time...except this one wasn't fail and I've actually earned For the Horde at long last. And this after clearing Sunwell Plateau and Black Temple. So happy right now.

You know, I've long felt that a debit card was a better bet than a credit card because if it got stolen or compromised, the thief would only have access to whatever meager contents my bank account happened to have, rather than the potentially enormous debt they could rack up with a credit card. Turns out I am dumb.

Having almost $400 disappear from...
