*hugs back to Mei and Tombow

@Tombow-aww, thanks. I know, my initial feelings were to hit the ground running...but..yeah, you know what i mean. I just hope that by the time i graduate, i wont have "sucker" written across my forehead laugh.gif
But it all boils down to the fact that i just cant stand to hurt someone or see a sad look on someone's face....oh well

@Mini-I'm in NY, but i can use my telekinetic abilities to help you! Us Bellydancing Envy Cosplayer Group members must stick together.

@Toby-Maybe the guy is just shy. There are guys out there that really dont like talking on the phone. I know...its a strange thing...us girls dont have a prob with it. But if he chats with you online or wants to meet you, then i think he is just phone-shy. After all, what guy could possibly say "no" to our little Toby happy.gif

I don't get it. Everytime we talk, he seems totally into it and interested in meeting up or chatting again, and yet no matter how often I tell him to call me sometime, he never does. Is it safe to say that this one's not interested?
Toby - It's possible that the guy gets chickened out everytime when he thinks about/ or tries calling you. If so, it doesn't mean he's not interested in you. Rather, it's opposit.
He probably likes you, but doesn't have guts to pick up a phone and ask you out.
If that's the case, give him some more time/cnance. biggrin.gif

Now I'm curious to know which 30 countries those were. ohmy.gif Quite a globetrekker, aren't you?


let's see all of the che gueverra route (argentina, chile, peru, columbia, and venezuela). on a side note, no offense to any peruvians but, PERU SUCKS. then over to brazil for a flight to england. then there was just a general milling around europe for a bit. next a flight down to israel to visit some friends from college and then a quick visit to egypt. from there i worked my way over to china stopping / hoping not to stop along the way here and there. when i got to china i did a west to east coastal city tour. my personal favorite is shanghai, HK is weird.... from shanghai to taipei to visit the family and whatnot. then i met up with my dad in st petersburg, after stopping in bejing, an hwei, wudang temple, mongolia and tibet, and we took the transiberian railroad all the way to vladivostok. it was ok i guess, but my father is a weirdo and this was on his list of things to do before he dies... then took a boat and made a few stops in your native canadia (as i like to call it). i forgot what they are called but those cheese extrusions or whatever the hell they are called were a pretty cool drunken snack... finally a boat to greenland, just to say i've been there, before coming home...

Hello mister Hitokiri, I've heard alot of nice things about you.

I wonder what "nice" means to you laugh.gif


@popogeejo: well hello there... and like arche wonders, i too wonder; who is saying these nice things and what are they? i mean i'm not a horrible bastard, most of the time, but i'm not so much with nice things with baskets of puppies doing cartwheels while little girls braid each others hair and whatnot either....

Am I the only one who thinks we're putting alot of preasure on Hito to be overly awesome?

To be honest, Hito's one of the few forum people I've seen on any forum that can just post one word and it still would have some air of coolness about it. He is the nega-arche. Everything I am not, Hito is laugh.gif ... My life is so pathetic dry.gif



now this concept of the nega-arche, or in your case the nega-hito, intrigues me... so am i the antimatter to your matter? if we come into contact will there be a rupture in space and time? if i were to say kill you or you were to kill me, would the killer then become The One? how many licks are there to the center of a tootsie pop?

the world may never know.... laugh.gif

but i am flattered at your kind words, sir. i tip my hat to you and bite my thumb at your enemies.... biggrin.gif

mini: ok now that i know what the bottle looks like i'll ask around and maybe take a tour of some liquor stores i know.... its always fun to go to liquor stores while everyone else is at work. laugh.gif

and to everyone else: thanks for those of you who know me and welcomed me back.... to those of you that don't know me, eh... laugh.gif

I don't think I can deny it any loner: I have a see-oh-ell-dee. Granted, I think I'm starting to get better, but I feel that I need to acknowledge that there was something wrong. I mean, I went through my box of tissues in two days. That's just not normal.

Everyone kept on telling me I should go home. Felt a little better after lying down once I did get home, but it still hurt until I ate some burgers. O.o (which is really weird...) it was good until bed, when it started acting up again, but in a bearable way. It was that way this morning too, but then I ate some fruit and it got worse on me. It's lunch time and I feel like throwing up again and I'm not getting anywhere near food!
I mean, it's retarded! I eat, I feel worse. I eat later, I feel better. WTF!?
Maybe I should go to the sick room like people were suggesting....But I'm too stubborn I think...

I totaly owned my professor today on this one circuit resistor problem. (due to the fact that my scanner died on me last week...i cannot show you people) Any who, its just was this really complicated circuit and basically he wanted us to draw it again, but make it look nicer/easier. So after looking at it i realized that he had a 'jumper wire' in parallel with a resistor. Effectically shorting out the resistor, so basically its useless and not needed in the circuit. I told him about it, and he gave me the 'run of the mill' answer, that i was wrong and such. So after about fifteen minuntes of arguing with my professor; he conceded and gave in. Huzza and kudos to myself!!!

Its raining here, so there is nothing to do on campus...

I really should start getting more sleep. My usual five hours a night is starting to take its toll.

My friend came to visit me happy.gif she told me that she got a text message from this guy and that she wants me to go and meet her, she should me all the texts messages that he sent her in school today...

So then I got the feeling that he could be a sex maniac...so we texted him a couple of more times then he said that he couldn't because our other friend told him that she was eighteen (Lied of course) and then he soon realised that she was fifteen

He was honest and that I would congradulate him with...but then he texted something else that was disturbing...he said if my friend was eighteen then he would've FD her...and thrus I was correct when calling him a sex manaic... other words he said that he was twenty six...

Migchao
Once upon a time, a girl named Migchao was getting into bed because she felt sick and tired. It was 6:00PM, and she was done with homework. She expected to have a nice nap since her noisy family was downstairs, distracted, ready to go to Publix. When her family left, Migchao, content, expected a good night's rest.

Migchao then remembered that she needed to go to Belkys' house to return her math textbook. Migchao mumbled to herself and walked out of the door, decided to take a nap when she returned home. She slipped on her shoes and walked out of the door, the math textbook tucked under he arm. The two girls were both neighbors.

There were no cars parked, but that was commom at Belkys's house. Migchao went in, then THWACK!

Migchao woke. There was a guy hovering over her with a metal pipe or something, but she could not recall it. She could not move. She was caught in between the fantasy world and the real world, and she was totally paralyzed by either fear or something. The guy swiftly brought down the weapon, and Migchao shut her eyes, waiting for impact...

Then Migchao's eyes suddenly opened. She got up slowly and realized that she was in a bed. She had been dreaming the entire time--the guy with the weapon that had kidnapped her was not real, but just a figment of her imagination. She had been trying to wake up to escape, but her brain was recieving too many messages at once or something, and that was why she could not move. Her family was back. She told them her dream, ate, got on the forums a little bit. A few minutes before she logged on, she remembered a red bird swooping somewhere down. Everything that occurred that day seemed to connect--she borrowed a math book, found a red feather in her pocket, and saw a pipe on the floor. Shrugging, she logged on and told the story.

It was freaky. No really, this dream really did happen, and I wanted to write a story. Story mode is fun! Ooh, please review if wanted! I may show it on the fanfiction section with an FMA character. My name's Migchao on fanfiction.net, and it was kind of fun to write...

@Toby-Maybe the guy is just shy. There are guys out there that really dont like talking on the phone. I know...its a strange thing...us girls dont have a prob with it. But if he chats with you online or wants to meet you, then i think he is just phone-shy. After all, what guy could possibly say "no" to our little Toby happy.gif


We've only spoken in person and on the phone. I doubt he's totally uninterested, as he did happily give me his home and cell number when we first met. He's just not active in his interest. Kinda reminds me of a lot of guys I know. 'Oh yeah, I'd love to date you/be your friend but I'm not going to put any effort whatsoever into making calls/scheduling dates/acknowledging your existence.' Not that I'm any better. I only talk on the phone with most of my friends every six months or so.

I get the feeling that he might just be really busy, or that his parents are strict and won't let him get involved. Last time we spoke his father picked up the phone and said he had to stop talking and finish his homework. dry.gif This is what I get for going after a really smart and interesting but still jailbait (by a year) guy.

I don't think I can deny it any loner: I have a see-oh-ell-dee. Granted, I think I'm starting to get better, but I feel that I need to acknowledge that there was something wrong. I mean, I went through my box of tissues in two days. That's just not normal.
@Mei Mei - Oh, no!! Hope you are gonna feel better soon!! Take care!! sad.gif

-ARGHHHH. I swear, this damn stomach is gonna explode! >< Yesterday it was horrible, especially after lunch when I tried to eat something and felt like throwing up for the rest of the school day. Everyone kept on telling me I should go home. Felt a little better after lying down once I did get home, but it still hurt until I ate some burgers. O.o (which is really weird...) it was good until bed, when it started acting up again, but in a bearable way. It was that way this morning too, but then I ate some fruit and it got worse on me. It's lunch time and I feel like throwing up again and I'm not getting anywhere near food!
I mean, it's retarded! I eat, I feel worse. I eat later, I feel better. WTF!?
Maybe I should go to the sick room like people were suggesting....But I'm too stubborn I think...
@Fushigi Rockna - Yeah, I think sick room, or otherwise some medical opinion is a good idea... just in case if there is anything serious...
Otherwise, keep toms on hand?? Or, if it's acid problems, Priosec-OTC might help?? unsure.gif
Anyway, hope it goes away soon!!

Curse the stupid E-coli and ban on fresh spinach! I wanted to try out a Spinach and Tomato Penne recipe. sad.gif
@Toby-Chan - In a pinch, try substituting with Swiss chard. Most of the time it comes out fairly well. BTW, your ginger chicken sounds (and looks) so good!! Got to try it!! biggrin.gif

@sweety_pie - If it's gold fish, it can live fairly long life. Some lives 10 years or more, I think.
Tho, most of the time, if in a fish tank, they seem, that soon or later they get sick and die. sad.gif
Hope your remaining fish are doing ok.

Mini-Can I just ask, where were you that there was a crack head within hugging distance??


sweety_pie - Poor fishy. When I had fish they fought one day while I was at school and ate each other. At least your fishy went of old age!

@Tombow-yup, its a new experimental way to monitor how grad students react under pressure....and how much work it takes before our heads explode. And judging from the im's that i got last nite....its not going to take much more before I start hearing "kaboom...splat" in various parts of the department. I think i can hold out a bit longer, hahha laugh.gif

I couldn't believe it, I got to enrollment and there was no line. I was in and done in about 10mins, which is some kind of a record.

Oh jeez its hot today, all thanks to the remains of a hurricane huh.gif

We have a new building at Uni, and they are already starting another one.

Richard Hammond was in a massive crash and suffered seriosu head injuries. He's stable to still in a bad way. I hope he gets better, Top Gear just wouldn't be the same without him sad.gif

Good morning, all! Another painfully pleasant-looking day--mostly clear skies, strong sunlight glaring off every surface giving me headaches and eye-pain. Not fun.
