- I've been feeling sick almost all week... and still am somehow, so... darn. I hope the coming week will be better... at least on that front.
- The sick made me lazy around all weekend, which included lots of sleep... I might go have a nap again in a few minutes, we'll see to that.
- Be it lazy or sick though, I still manage to spend time with my half which is well and good smile.gif
- I know I have to do a bit of studying for a long-distance course I'm doing but I don't really feel like it today. Studying via distance learning is difficult, plus the fact that I've finished my Masters almost 3 years ago makes the situation even more difficult :S
- My Lent will be... trying to keep calm and not get angry much (especially at work...). More useful than staying away from sweets and chocolate.
- I need to exercise more and start a more rigid dietary regime (pfftt).

@Chiyo: Good luck with the interview!

- I think I've trapped a nerve in my back, am rather uncomfortable currently.

- I am however doing quite well on my "giving up Sarcasm for Lent". I've manage to catch myself when I am being sarcastic and either alter what I'm saying or take it back. Does make me sound so negative though as I used to use sarcasm to cover negativity up.

- I have an interview Wednesday. Something my degree counts toward in a very specific sense.

@Chiyo The best of luck with the interview!
@amestris_star I Hope you feel better soon!

-Just woke up about 20 minutes ago...Fell asleep again earlier. xD; I Have to get out of this habit today or I'll regret it. But I did have quite the odd dream with d*** Van Dyke in it. oO EDIT: LOL! It censored his naughty name...

-I think I'll have a bath soon...then do more homework. (Yes, it's endless.)

-It snowed again...Hopefully it'll be all gone by tomorrow.

-I've decided I need a banner for my signature. : )

Today it took almost 40 minutes for me to get my salad at my school dining hall. Seriously the ceasar salad is pre-made in a bowl, the cafeteria worker just has to scoop it out onto my plate. Turns out they didn't even get my order, so I had to show them my reciept and fix that.

My dorm needs new dryers. None of them dry the clothes on the first cycle at all.

Tonight my friends and I had plans to surprise one of our friends for his birthday. We decided to go to lazer tag. Turns out the place was closed.

-I want my German 3 credit!!!!!
-So anyways, the situation is I'm the student who "goes above and beyond" in my work in Rosetta Stone German. I'm enrolled in the German 2 course, but I've already finished the curriculum, I've decided to go ahead and move onto the German 3 curriculum and hopefully get my credit.
-Unfortunately, the head of the Foreign Language Department doesn't like that and even though I'm almost done with German 3. So while a bunch of idiots who are in the same class as me play Halo 3 on .exe files. So, the message they're giving to me is that they aren't willing to punish the kids who don't even give any effort to at all to their work, but are also not willing to reward the one student who actually does the work and goes beyond it. THIS IS RIDICULOUS!!!! :fumes:
-On the bright side, I liked how ep 2 of FMA:B dubbed came out.
-I have a ridiculous amount of homework from my history teacher. Unfortunately, he doesn't even realize how much work it is.
-I'm also very hungry.

Usually when the wheather is freezing cold and horrible and the streets are covered in feet thick snow (in it's places) and ice and the subways have been put out of order, and there are traffic stockings everywhere... school tends to get cancelled? It's pretty normal? Right??

The impression I've got from both US and England, at least.

Well, not here. Here, they insist that we struggle through the fiercest of blizzards, the harshest of snow walls, the most chaotic of traffic chaos. Sat an hour and a half on a replacement bus for the subway today. Shoulda taken me 10 minutes to travel that route normally. When I got to class there were four or five people there. One girl in my class was stuck on a bus half the day, she still was when school ended. Don't know when she got home.

CT's:

- REALLY hope there will be a snowday tomorrow.
- Had rather a hilarious day at school.
- Hit some stupid girl with a door today. It just so happened to be one of the girls that pick on me. Haha oops.. I didn't see her. Karma's a b*tch isn't it? x) oh well, she was standing right in the door's pathway. Not my fault. sleep.gif
- My teeth are all blue from eating blueberry candy.
- Apperantly I have the highest average in my art class. wow okay... o__o
- I love the dub on Brotherhood. I like it a lot more because of VIC <33333
- I'm so hungry right now, it's 4:03 pm now and I haven't eaten since 9 am.

@Broken ChouChou It's probably to do with some countries being more equipped for that type of weather more than others. Back when the snow was pretty bad here, (along with that whole lack of grit crisis that was going on) my dad was taking me to college and we skidded on the icy road which scared me -- I thought we were going to crash. oO But not all schools/colleges closed. On the whole the college I go to was open and loads of people (including myself) were spending hours on the road just to get there. xD The snow has been pretty bad for the past few days and no school has closed. : )

Sambam - always blame karma on things like that.

Chouchou - I agree with Pierrot, we close down because we just can't cope as well as other places. In saying that, my school stayed open.
Broken Chouchou
Pierrot and Chiyo - aright, I hear you guys, you have a point. It's just, I don't think we're that well-equipped, or rather - prepared - at all. Especially not this year (granted, it's been the coldest, most extreme and most persistent winter in years, but still). Local traffic sure as hell is not. Our subway system isn't built to cope with snow or cold weather. The subway always malfunctions, gears and breaks freezing up, and almost every year around winter there's total chaos. It's pretty dumb to call it a subway when 80 % of it runs above ground. And it's also dumb to have it run over ground WHEN WE LIVE IN A COUNTRY WITH COLD AND SNOWY WINTERS, AND NOT BUILDING THE TRAINS PROPERLY WITH THAT IN MIND. And this year general ″safety maintenence″in the city, such as sanding the roads and clearing them of snow, and also clearing the roofs, to prevent people from getting hit by falling chunks, has been handled really poorly. Everyone's been thinking ″Don't worry, it'll pass″. But guess what, it hasn't so far. It's probably even worse now than a month ago. I guess I'd just want someone to at least introduce the word 'snowday' to our vocabulary...

There, rant over. And really, I quite DO like the winters, and snow. I just don't like when things don't get handled properly, which leads to very annoying circumstances.

I think I should schedule an appointment with my doctor for all this stomach pain I have been having. Waking up every moring for three days in a row feeling nauseos is not fun. I think I may have an ulcer since I feel like I am under so much stress. But I also think I am too young for an ulcer.

Hey everyone, just want to put out a couple gentle reminders. This isn't aimed at anyone in particular so please don't think I'd picking on anyone. I am posting it here as the easiest way to reach everyone.

- In regards to signature size, yes image dimensions must be 300pixels high and 500pixels wide at maximum, but please also avoid adding too much text. Having an image 300pixels high and then lines and lines of text misses the point of keeping signatures small. This is for the benefit of everyone remember.

- If your signature/avatar was created by someone else/uses their artwork, credit them!

- In relation specifically to Penny Thread (i.e, this one) please don't post several times a day. It's not that we don't like hearing from you, it just means some posts get lost among people chatting between one another.

- If you have already posted in Penny in one day, go back and edit your previous post if you just want to add a couple extra thoughts. If you really want to get a message to someone, why not PM them instead? It's always nice to get a note.

Son of Rock Dinosaur Gene Simmons, Nick (famous for being son of Gene and unknown for his actual career) was recently called out for plagiarising BLEACH and possibly Hellsing.
Naturally numerous questions have been raised such as:
Why Bleach, How can he deny such obvious theft and the most asked question of all: Gene Simmons son makes a comic!?

The publishers of his amazingly mediocre comic have shelved it until they investigate the accusations further.

Nick had the following to say on his facebook:
"Who would name their comic after a detergent?"

More links will be added as and if I feel like it:
