It's been so long since I've even looked at this site that to go back and read old entries was truly entertaining.

Hey, how about that. Soundtracks for Final Fantasy I, II, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, and XI are on iTunes. Also some Black Mages stuff, and other assorted FF Nobuo Uematsu stuff. 4-disc OST for VIII, for example, 25 bucks. Nice.

That's me. Late Saturday night, after I'd spent a good long portion of the day moving things, I'm sitting at the computer doing some codework for yet another place that I joined up on. Hadn't really been able to eat dinner, but that was no big deal until a couple of hours later I got so cold that I started shaking uncontrollably. Not too long after, I'm stuck in bed. Was there for somewhere around 30 hours, barring a couple of trips to vomit and seek out some meds. Bleh.

Been to the doc, though, being treated for strep. No work today (obviously), and probably not tomorrow either, seeing as how my supervisor has a phobia of getting sick--ironic, since she works in a hospital, but she does have good reason as she's allergic to more or less every drug on the market. They say after 24 hours of these meds I should be feeling a lot better. So.. there's that.

Anyhow, that's just to let people know why I didn't show up to get more work done yesterday. My fever's down and I'm feeling better save for my throat, so I'm staying out of bed and keeping my mind on things other than being sick. My back hurts from being in bed for so long, anyway.

Right, then. So the thirty minutes of lying down at about 2:00 this morning was all I was destined for.

Ah well. Not like I haven't gone on zero sleep before. I'm actually pretty much as awake as I usually am, in fact.. though I have to wonder if that's really such a good thing.

Oh yeah, and another icon to break the theme.

Anecdotes. Or something like them.

1. Today in my psych class, it was yet another day (I think this has happened in all three that I've taken, General, Personality, and Developmental.. or maybe it just seems that way) when the professor gave everyone five or ten minutes to pose this question to yourself: "Who am I?" It was for comparison against answers from other (younger) age groups, so there was a reason. But I couldn't really answer it in any way that seemed satisfactory to me.

Maybe it was just because there wasn't enough time. Uh, yeah, that's the ticket.

2. The girl that sits next to me in Physiology lecture reached over and drew a frowning smiley face (so not so smiley) at the top of my notes. I naturally gave her an odd look, and she told me it was a caricature.

Huh. Interesting.

3. Eight weeks of this semester have nearly gone by, and after spring break (next week), only six more weeks of class remain, then finals week. It feels like it's been about three weeks.

This is good. Mostly. I think.

You know, it's almost insulting to start to walk outside when it's pouring, reach for your umbrella, and find that when you zipped up your bag twenty seconds ago, it got caught in the zipper. Not only that, but it won't come out for the end of the fuckin' world.

Though, upon accepting I was going to get soaked, I did have a nice walk through the rain.

So I was talking to this girl after class today, and at one point in the conversation, she said something to the effect of: "Wow, I never had you pegged for a kind of guy." And I started wondering, and now between driving back to campus to get some documents for my application and then back home, I came up with this. I turned on anonymous posting and turned off IP logging, so comment on it anonymously, I obviously won't mind. I thought this might be interesting, though for all that it's not necessarily supposed to be a meme, I'm sure it'll look that way.

So, what kind of guy do you have me pegged for? Or, what kind of guy did you have me pegged for, if you were wrong?

Ought to be interesting.

So I'm sitting in physiology lecture today as the professor is talking about the vestibular system (how the body knows where you are and what all your parts are doing when you can't see them, etc.). We're going over the utricle (detects horizontal acceleration) and the saccule (detects vertical acceleration). It's about that time that I turn I my friend and pose this question:

Me: So, say you're falling from some great height, facing the ground. Will your utricle and saccule be working correctly there, or will they get a little confused since you're facing downward while falling?

Him: Well.. I think pretty much you're just wiggin' out.

Me: ..Yeah, good point.

Well, finally filled up all my little slots with new icons (save for the gift ones I've had, those stay). All of them have lyrics of some sort on there, and most (I think all but the default) of them are blended images. Go look! I'd like to think they're pretty cool.
