It's the last day of classes today, thank cats. I woke up at 8:30 and thought I had slept though my last chemistry class. I got up to shower anyways, and halfway through realized that class started at 9, not 8, so if I rushed I could, in fact, still make class. I've no idea why, after an entire semester of class at 9, I would suddenly think it was at 8. Just one of those mornings.
I did make it to class, by the way.
The big deal for today is that we're presenting our final projects for CFC. You know, the one that had to be about 'hope and despair'. Others are doing their projects on 9/11, and racial discrimination, and poverty. I did mine on Red Sox fans. Well, at least it'll be different. In this case we hope that 'different' means 'worthy of an A'.
Anyways, I'll probably take pictures so you can all see what it looks like when it's installed and.... oh, damn, that reminds me, I need to charge my camera battery! A moment. *a moment passes in which I dig out my battery charger, plug it in, and insert the battery* OK. Good thing I remembered that.
Right-o, not much else to say until I actually finish classes, so I've rustled up some things which you ought to check out. I don't give you folks half the links I think I should, but I suffer from the worrying thought that no one ever looks at the things I say you ought to look at.
First off, if you're looking for even more ways to waste your time on the computer, I found ways for you to do so! If you're looking for things to do online, check out Fan and Ball. It's very pretty and rather difficult. It's linked up on the side, for posterity.
If you're looking for things to do on your computer when you're not online (like when you're in lecture, but not in a room with wireless internet... and as if Snood wasn't bad enough) you should go check out Neave's webgames. You can play them online, but you can also download and play them whensoever you please. Nice, classic games. And the site design is lovely, especially the wonky frame that gets bulgy and liquidy when you run the cursor over it. Playing with that alone entertained me for at least as long as PacMan did.
I also have a brand spankin' new webcomic for you to peruse. It's Qwantz.com, which I keep misspelling when I try to type it out. The fellow who makes it took one enigmatic comic of dinosaurs, and every day he supplies them with new dialogue. The same images! New dialogue! Every day! It's equal parts madness and genius, and the expression on the T. Rex lends itself perfectly to so many things. Oh, and the one he did on Batman's origins made me laugh out loud.
Cripes, it's raining like the clappers out there. I don't want to go all the way up to North Campus, all in my nice pants and whatnot to do this stupid presentation. Nice pants going to get sopping wet. Grr.
OK. I need to go dig up my level and my tape measure so's I can hang these here panels nice and straight-like. I will probably blog again tomorrow to let you all know how it went, and also because I will not have class. Although I will have a timeline to make out of metal. Hmm. Yes. I'm off.
