i am pissed. i decided not to sample my friend's jamba juice today because she was coughing in calc and a lot of people have been getting sick lately, and she said that NO she's not sick, put her mouth about an inch away from mine and started coughing. on my lips and face. if she wasn't a friend, i would have smacked her because i'm really anal about people within 10 feet of me not covering their mouths when they cough, and that was just plain disgusting. but i feel like i should have just given her the bitch slap i was supressing, because i now have a sore throat and a cough.

i cannot be incapacitated before my risd deadline. if i get sick and bedridden before the deadline and somehow screw over my portfolio, i will personally beat the living crap out of any remotely unhealthy person at school and force the remaining live ones to wear sars masks until further notice. mad.gif if i'm still not feeling well on monday she'll feel my full wrath, friend or not. i hate getting sick.

- psycho's mentino of bleachers just reminded me of how dangerous the ones at my school are. Maybe that's why I never go to any of the home games. (Or away games, for that matter tongue.gif--bleachers = scary)
- I'm itching to start making the dragon puppet. I have an idea of how to make it, just need to make sure it'll work out. Maybe I should make a mini-model first...?
- Thirsty.

:edit:
@ Ninja: For the general populace's safety, let's just cross our fingers and hope you don't get sick.

Thoughts:
- Tired after the 5 year old party last night. My daughter turned into a crazed maniac running around the place and didn't want to go home.
- Watching Maggie and the Ferocious Beast with my daughter. Fun cartoon smile.gif
- Got done playing the piano a bit. I acually did begin to work on getting through to the 4th measure in Liszts Transendental etude #10. At this rate, I'll finish it by the time I'm 80 year old dry.gif
- I need an automatic page turner for my sheet music. I can now play most of the Erlkonig without forgetting what I'm doing, but I have to stop to turn pages because I'm not fast enough (I'm still not playing it at Schnell speed though dry.gif)
- Why am I so proud of myself for absolutely the smallest achievements? I guess I have low expectations laugh.gif

It's the small acheivements that count. Yesterday I was showing off the Shibumi paper airplane that I learned how to make from one of my teacher's paper airplane books. It was the coolest paper airplane I ever did make! (And it glides real good, too! tongue.gif)

94 times? Wow.

I can kick it...no, I can't kick it. At all. mellow.gif

- Will go to a bookstore in town that I never knew existed. How the hell did it escape my notice? I must hunt it down. Guess that makes up for not going to Chinatown today. Maybe.

Unfortunately, I can't use it. Or rather, shouldn't.

Current Thoughts:

- Woke up early today. I can't believe myself.
- I have a 4-hour class soon.
- I probably won't be on much tonight, as I'm going to that dinner party. So, you kids better behave while I'm gone.

I can do a 10th without a problem, so I guess I do have a wide stretch smile.gif. The octaves are no problem for me with it. My only problem is my poor technique.

A 10th! ohmy.gif The most I can do is a 9th, and even that I have to strain a little for, so my hands get tired after doing octaves for a prolonged period of time.

I have poor technique, too. biggrin.gif

My old piano teacher way back when I was in high school had small hands too. He always had to break up anything that was wide. He told me early to stretch my fingers out and take advantage of my reach.

Poor technique is entry requirements into the Overly Ambitious Non-Existent Lazy Pianist Club laugh.gif

i can easily do a 9th, but 10th is a little more of a stretch for me tongue.gif i don't think i've played my piano since i quit after 8th grade.....evil piano. ph34r.gif

I'm not, but I like to play. It's only been within the last year that I even got a cheap electric piano for my apartment (I would feel horrible forcing others to listen to me sometimes).

Go to a person's profile and on the right, there are choices. One of the choices is to ignore the person.

Thoughts:

- Parents just stopped by on their way back from Maine. They're gone now - very quick visit smile.gif
- Daughter is playing video games
- Need to think about dinner - or just go hungry, but I'm not up for that dry.gif

Slash* you're not going to ignore me are you?
Ailuro
I tried using the ignore feature. But I can't because of my curiosity. I have to see what other members have posted or I'll go crazy. ><
Guest_Halogen_*
^ Same. It's just fun to see the stupid things stupid people say.

- Why can't this forum let me be plain Halogen and stop adding Guest and * to my name?
alchemist x
Me too
and who would you not listen to if you used that feature
Ail
That, my friend, is a secret I shall tell no one. wink.gif
ἀρχή
It's less distracting for me to click on the post to read rather than just have them there. I don't come to the forums to get annoyed at stupidity, so I'd rather read posts from people I know to be junk when I feel up to it or see that someone has already responded to it meaningfully.
alchemist x
Ail: it would be me or LMD wouldnt it?
Ail
Once again, I tell you that it is a secret.

I've never tried the ignore feature. When I do, that's when you know I'm really annoyed, and believe me, I'll let you know when I'm ignoring you.

I admire arche and Quistis' reach. I can barely--just barely do a 9th. I'm thinking my piano doesn't like me much.

- Just came back from the bookstore--a very good find, though there's way too many romance novels per science-fiction/fantasy. That ratio doesn't work for me. But the owners were nice. They have a tutoring service that my sister would like to do for community service. I would help out, too, but between the MakeAWish stuff and my senior project, I don't think I would have the time. sad.gif

Good choices on the first and third of the list (I haven't read the other ones). You'll like the Shakespeare one, I'm sure. It's hilarious.

Current Thoughts:

- Have some time to kill before that dinner party.
- I could finish up one of my readings now.
- Gotta make a list of stuff I have due for the next two weeks, otherwise I'll forget.
- I wish I had a secretary.

- came home from art to find people in my house installing a satellite dish network.....what in the world do we need 180 channels (including 17 chinese channels) for? blink.gif

- don't feel as sick anymore

- found out that my art teacher's [rather hot] son is applying for a transfer to risd because his younger sister, my friend, is there right now and having a great time.....so hopefully the both of us will make it in tongue.gif his portfolio deadline is 3/1, though, whereas mine is 2/15. dry.gif

- wow, there are a lot of threads pinned in OC now blink.gif
