    My new car (Lincoln MKZ hybrid) is pulling about 38-40 MPG. Comfy, great sound system, all the bells/whistles, I'm not all strung out after sitting in traffic on my commute home anymore. Not the prettiest or flashiest or sexiest car out there, but I'm in luv.

    Our division recently changed offices and location, so I've been busting my ass making sure everything is logical and set out correctly.
    Only now is it finally coming in to shape and it's looking fiiiiiiine.

    The street was empty, I was with my GF at a crossing and one cab was coming our way. The driver stopped and let us pass.

    I was baffled and I had a weird smile on my face for a couple mins.

    I kind of put off doing any of my Art History online quizzes throughout the entire semester, which really bit me in the ass, with finals being next week. Our teacher told us she would open up all quizzes to anyone who wanted to take them that hadn't done so already. Scooore!

    Also, my Medieval Lit teacher showed us our only two essay questions (that's our entire final, but he wants us to provide enough content in two hours to answer - which is more than fair), discussed with us exactly what he wanted us to do to research them, AND told us that we can bring him rough outlines until the final, and then on the day of the final, we can just transcribe our outline into our essay. I feel so incredibly lucky this semester.

    And after next Thursday - No school until June! YES!

    This site's freak out over KROQ's blunder and subsequent "hacking" of nullco.com to find both the non-public link for the Immigrant song (meant solely for radio stations) and the GDT Soundtrack page before it was officially released.

    I missed you, ETS.

    ETS being back online as I'm sure many of you will agree, this cheered me up yesterday. That and my friends have been awesome since me and my lady split last month. Not so sound too cheesy but they really have been amazing. A true friend will not only buy you a beer but toss you 12 rolls of ass wipe as well.

    ^^^ I was going to say something similar to Pillfred. I really missed ETS. It is the only board where I've overcome my shyness and met people from it. I don't know anyone that well, but somehow I feel at home here.

    So, um...the new Firefox looks like crap, but I have to say, it is actually faster, as promised.

    A professor I really respect just sent me a message out of the blue saying incredibly nice things about my work. I'm.. it's making me kind of emo. Very unexpected.

    Herman Cain. Now I'll have to find another source of comedic brilliance.

    The Naked and Famous cancelled a show in Tulsa tomorrow due to sickness. I hope the band recovers and takes all the time they need off, i'm not happy that they're sick. I'm just glad that they're going to try to come back later on, because it's impossible for me to go there tomorrow. Good thing I didn't buy tickets! Maybe next time I'll be able to. Especially if it's before summer.

    A bit slow to start, but then it takes off and I was up until 5AM one night cause I couldn't stop reading. Some really​ brutal passages, rape and sexual abuse. It'll be interesting to see how much of that gets included in the film.

    The first movie, the rape scene was pretty intense.

    A vacation from work. And this time with nothing to do. Nowhere to go, no one to report to, no trying to squeeze as much activity into every day. Just sitting at home in pjs all day long.

    Waking up at three in the morning, looking over at the clock and realizing I don't have to be up for another three hours. It's such a relief, because that first second I wake up, I always think it's time to get up, until my eyes focus enough to be able to see the clock and then I realize what time it really is. Such a good feeling.

    Just got a part time mystery shopper job, going into bars and getting drinks and seeing if they ID me. It's only a few hours, but the pay is okay, I desperately need Christmas money, and I'm getting paid to go get drunk. Totally made my shitty day better.

    Reminiscing about the old word filter that changed "beard" to "penis". Welcome back ETS.
