Three things: pass it forward

Stolen from Krista:

List 3 things that bug you – things that others may find trivial. If you have an idea on how to fix it, be sure to put that down too. Then tag 6 of your friends. Only list three things because you may/can be tagged again.

  1. Slowness – Not just ordinary slowness. I mean slowness in getting started on things that you know need to be done. I mean stopping in the middle of a project to dick around and leaving shit in shambles while you frolic. I mean dragging a five hour project out over two or three days. I also mean being late getting places or meeting people because you don’t or can’t factor in your own damn slowness. I also mean slowness in making small decisions–should it take an hour to decide where you want to eat? There are five restaurants to choose from. Really. (Note: I will playfully excuse myself and WO from that last one, because, well, we do that. *shrug* Everyone else, though… *shakes grumpy finger*)
  2. Websites that require Javascript or Flash to navigate – Despite my l33t CS coder background (it’s even hereditary!), I do sometime run sans javascript, and Flash is always the last plugin I install in Firefox, despite the fact that the damn Rose-Hulman webpage uses it. Case in point: Frontier Labs, the folks that make my CompactFlash MP3 player. To fix it, here’s a novel idea: FLASH IS NOT SEXY. It’s just not. It’s not cool. You know what Flash is good for on the intarweb? Videos. Like “The End of the World” and “Only in Kenya“. That’s it, folks.
  3. Drivers that don’t let pedestrians cross. See, where I come from, pedestrians have the right-of-way. Admittedly, they probably shouldn’t dawdle as they cross the skreet, but they have the right-of-way. Is your trip to the mall, grocery store, or emergency room of the hospital so f’ing important that you can’t let that 80-year woman with a walker and a seeing eye dog hobble across the street without you cutting her off? Patience, people, patience. It ain’t that skerious.

Tag, bitches! WO (bwua-ha-ha, time to edit that blog, darling dear), Nathan, Jenny, EJ, Jenn, and Luke.

Edit: Here’s Jenny’s. Here’s WO’s.

Funny “ha ha”?


the Idiot Savant
(47% dark, 53% spontaneous, 52% vulgar)
your humor style:
VULGAR | SPONTANEOUS | LIGHT

You like things silly, immediate, and, above all, outrageous. Ixne on
the subtle word play, more testicles on fire, please. People like you
are the most likely to RECEIVE internet forwards–and also the most
likely to save them in a special folder entitled ‘HOLY SHIT’.

Because it’s so easily appreciated, and often wacky and physical, your
sense of humor never ceases to amuse your friends. Most realize that
there’s a sly intelligence and a knowing wink to your tastes. Your
sense of humor could be called ‘anti-pretentious’–but paradoxically
enough, that indicates you’re smarter than most.

Existentialist… but then, we knew that.

You scored as Existentialism. Your life is guided by the concept of Existentialism: You choose the meaning and purpose of your life.

�Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.�

�It is up to you to give [life] a meaning.�

–Jean-Paul Sartre

�It is man’s natural sickness to believe that he possesses the Truth.�

–Blaise Pascal

More procrastination

One more exam left: Analytical Chemistry. The PLC exam yesterday morning went well, and I am having a marvelous week (um, except for that bad news about Luke; that’s a downer). One more exam means I have another procrastination-quiz. Why I’m taking quizzes to avoid tests is the key to my psyche, I think… (or maybe just the key to why I’m [still] at Rose)

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when everything is uncertain, one moment heaven… the next moment hell.
You’d like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.
Your ideal relationship is comforting. You crave a relationship where you always feel warmth and love.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage something you’ve always wanted… though you haven’t really thought about it.
In this moment, you think of love as something you can get or discard anytime. You’re feeling self centered.

The questions asked were a bit… odd to get these answers, but I can see the correlation, I guess. Cute, though, if nothing else.
