I might be moving back to Canada next spring to go to university!  :D

I went back to the asian place today and finally got to try Beef Negamaki, Pad Thai, and red bean ice cream.

I love negamaki!  My wife makes it with carrot and asparagus.  :)

J0lt, have I ever mentioned how much of a lucky bastard you are?  :p

The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"

I finally got to run a game yesterday for the first time in about two years.

It was a fairly simple session.  The two players still had some finalizing to do on their PCs (I'm attempting this game with a massive set of house rules), but it didn't take too long.  Still, they got the lay of the land of the city they're in, they met a few people that can help provide plot hooks, did some roleplaying, and kicked in some gang member's heads.  The first attack roll the first player rolled was even a crit.  Fun times by all.

I really forgot how much I missed this!

One of the mutant proteins that I designed and constructed in my previous post-doc is working very well in follow-up experiments with it. I was worried that all the work I'd done on that project was going to be a waste of the last two years of my life. I am very happy!  :jumping

Don't worry, I'm also genre savvy.  For example, we'll put a gene in them to find my flesh unpalatable, and also treat my creations with compassion so they won't automatically turn on us if freed.

I have shingles!!!!!!!! Wait...... I mean the good part is that I managed to break in time to avoid killing those two kittens out of the group of 2 adults and 3 kittens living on the side of the road......... wait now I remember my college golf class is going to be meeting at the place 3 minutes from where I live as opposed to any of the others that would be 45 minutes away. And I got free food today.

Horrible as I am this remembers me of a story a friend told me about.

Someone he knew was out driving, also managing to drive over a cat. As he stepped out of the car to find it he saw it in the grass, also noticing it was not dead. After the painful procedure of strangling the cat (yes, he did just that) he goes to the house that the cat ran out from, realising it was where it used to live. The family is sad, of course, but realises it was an accident and forgives him. As he drives off to work (he was heading there from the beginning) nothing happens. But during lunch a guy at his work shows up and says "Hey ****, did you know there is a dead cat stuck in the front of your car?". As the realisation strikes him he drives back and how to explain to the family how he had managed to road-kill the first cat and strangled their other.

Sad as it is, when he told me this story all of us had to fight to hold back the tears from laughing. Also, two or three other "fun" stories of cats that had been run over was told during the evening.

No way... that's too crazy to believe. He strangled a perfectly healthy cat? Fluffy rolls Will to disbelieve. He could take any commoner!

One of the other stories involved a guy actually finding the right kitty, but he did not manage to strangle it since it was strong enough to fight back. So using the only tool he could find in his car he ended its misery, the thing is, it was a sledgehammer. As a result of the ... act ... he was covered in cat blood and was going to walk up to the house that this cat ran out from. But as he stands there, covered in the evidence of his act, cat in one hand, sledgehammer in his other, who comes driving along the road if not *dramatic pause* his mother in law.

After this story I think I actually started crying from laughter

I remember that one of my high school teachers, back when HE was in high school, was apparently going to pick up his girlfriend for something. On the way, he ran over a cat, and noticed the tag said "Fluffy". Anyway, he continued to his girlfriend's house, and was invited to stay for dinner, so to make small talk he explained why he was late (running over this random cat). He'd just finished relating how he'd remarked, upon reading the cat's name tag, "Well you aren't so Fluffy now!" before noticing that the family was between horrified and crying. At which point he realized it was their cat.
So you end up stuck in an endless loop, unable to act, forever.

In retrospect, much like Keanu Reeves.

My teachers from Taiko want to train me to be on the performance team. I'm elated, but at the same time, this news is pretty bittersweet.
They basically want to set up a meeting with me and talk to me about what all this entails... my heart's racing right now. I almost cried when I got the voice message on my phone. I've never been considered good at ANYTHING before, and this is seriously a dream come true. Ever since I first saw Fushu Daiko play, I've wanted to get up on stage and play too! And now I have the opportunity to do it, and it scares me.
 
My issue is that I have to put school first, and my hobbies second...
I just hope I can both get my schoolwork done (to the level of completion I need to excel) AND train 4+ days a week for performance team. I'm really crossing my fingers on this one. Something tells me it might not work out...

But still, I'm honored to have been selected for this. I never thought my hard work would get me anywhere.

People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.
