I have officially decided that I don't much care for 56k modems.  Give me back my Roadrunner service, that's all I want tonight.  That's all!  My computer seems so far away, but I would drive the two hours to use it if I didn't have to drive back AGAIN for work in the morning.  Gosh, the choices, the choices.  They are just tearing at me.  I'm not saying the computer I'm using is bad.  I mean, c'mon.  Flat screen, PentiumIII processor, go Vaio.  But, I just miss my cable modem is all.  I'm chuggin along at a grand 28.8 connection.  That's certainly not up to my standards, lol. Thankfully, I found ICQ and AIM on the setup wizard, otherwise I'd be pulling my hair out, hair by hair by hair!  It's okay though, I've got people to talk to while the pages load, inch by inch.

Kyle got his new truck tonight.  I'm not that jealous.  I mean it is a 98 F150 that's perty as could be.  And his dad bought it for him.  So, I'm not that jealous.  I work for my car.  I pay it off month by month.  I like my Taurus.  I'm not saying I wouldn't like my parents to just give me a car; I'll live.  


But I am using his top of the line computer, in his massive house, on his giant tract of land.  I'll shut up now before I work myself into a temper. HEHE!

Anyways, I didn't have class today.  I don't have class on Fridays.  Good scheduling on my part.  I didn't do much, slept in a little bit, did some cleaning, stood outside and listened to the birds for twenty minutes.  Stuff like that.  And, I took a nap.  Those are always high quality.

At last, I have a point for this post.  Someone asks me what I hunger for?  I initially said adrenaline, but she asks what the difference is between that and an addiction with cocaine.  You need to have more of both.  But, cocaine produces an agonist neurotransmitter in the brain, right?  Adrenaline is an actual transmitter, so there's a difference I think.  What do you think?

Well, I'm currently working on a theory that peanut butter makes you tired.  I'm not sure how it will turn out, but I'm hoping that peanut butter actually does make you tired.  Because if not, I'll have eaten a lot of peanut butter for nothing.  Of course, I could get tired and it won't be because of the peanut butter at all.  But of course, I will say it's the peanut butter, because that is the type of logic that I like right now.  It is the type of logic that says I'm always right.  It's probably a good thing that this type of logic isn't used by more important things than me (contrary to popular opinion, there are many more important things than me).  Because then they would be right, instead of me.  And I don't think I could take that.  Well, I probably could.  Wait, I do everyday.  So in the end, maybe it would be good if the peanut butter doesn't make me tired, because that would prove my always right theory wrong (which I believe the real world has proven it is).  But then again, doesn't that make me right because I believe it's wrong?  Oh wow, this is just one big circle.  An endless complicated circle that all started because of peanut butter.  Of course, I guess that's not suprising, because peanut butter really is more sinister than one might think.  First, let's think about the words on the peanut butter jar.  One of the most prominent words on my jar of peanut butter is creamy (the following doesn't apply to those who eat crunchy peanut butter).  Now, maybe it is just me, but when I think of something creamy, I don't think of something sticky.  Yet, lo and behold, peanut butter is sticky.  Now, why do they call it creamy if it is sticky?  Something sinister is afoot.  Something very sinister indeed.  Something so sinister, that the first moment I thought of it, I stopped eating the peanut butter (well, that and I was starting to get sick from it, and I don't think getting sick is very helpful in getting sleepy).  Well, I wonder how all this typing is affecting my sleeping (or trying to be sleeping) roommate.  On that note of wonderment, bubye.

How was frisbee?  I wanted to play tonight, but I had a more pressing reunion at the airport.  Did Kyle make it out?  Something tells me he didn't because of his Physics test, but I am curious anyways.  

I have your ticket.  You can get it from me tomorrow.  I just realized that I haven't made the boffers yet.  Boffers would be quality entertainment for my house, don't you think?  We should put some of those together sometime soon.  

Alright, talk to you tomorrow.  Things to do.

I think it is funny that today I risked my life sprinting across a wide, sort of busy street so I could consider buying big fireworks that are just as likely to kill me.  But at least it was in the name of patriotism for my fair nation.

Do you think I should be worried that I slowly walked across that same street you sprinted across?   *Grins*  

But, true...knowing Kyle, he will blow something up that he shouldn't.  Oh well, I'll be hiding behind HIS truck.  hehe

I saw my dog in our basement the other night, and she looked at me with those sad eyes everyone associates with dogs.  Almost as if she knew that she shouldn't be stuck in some house, but running free like dogs of old old (wolves?), like people who know they aren't where they should be, but can't think of anyway to get where their blood tells them to go.

Tonight is the last night home of my last ever winter break.  And I thought that was kind of depressing.  But maybe I can comfort myself by realizng that in 6 months I'll have graduated, and I'll have a well paying job in a corporate office where my only concern is my next promotion.  Yay.  Can't wait.  I feel better already.

Well, I might add that Ryan will be leaving me all alone in school after this semester.  I still have two more years.  Way to go, Philip.

Oh, and Ryan, you probably also have other things to look forward to.  Like my graduation party.  And me visiting you at work at the worst possible times.

and YOUR graduation party.  *grins*  btw, when are we doing that?  and where?  and how quickly do you want to repeat New Years?  lmao

I work in a lab right now.  Well, they call it a lab.  It is a room with lots of neon lights, a couple tables, and about 10 different computers.  And no windows.  I guess an office at least has windows.  So I can watch the squirrels.  Maybe they will be merry.  Or I will watch the emus.  Maybe they will be tragic.

Ryan

Oh, and I suppose I will probably be wherever the job market takes me.  Chicago would be a nice choice, or maybe Seattle.  But then I'll come back to KS someday.

Thats so cool....you permanentized a passage of time in your life from college to graduation....like a time capsule thing. Ok maybe that doesn't make sense but I know what I mean. N now I'm the one in college dreading the early classes and staying up impossibly late cos I can't sleep. I think Im an insomniac. I missed my nine o clock this morning because I was still awake at 5 am because my brain wouldnt switch off. So the alarm clock got switched off instead. (What, you wanted me to have the alarm going off at 7 when I was still awake at 5?) First class I missed this term though....made two whole weeks of all my classes and today that ends. hehe. Its 00.41 GMT....so way early in the states...hopefully I wont be up til 5am again. Actually I am very happy because I have finally seen how it is that I am linked to a very special person...he's my soulmate. Don't ask me how I know but it just is so. We may not be "together" but we will always be together. Anyway, I think I am rambling now...I think we should have a competition to see who can ramble the longest and the most pointlessly. You did well in your college prime, Ryan. :-p But can you still do it? Or have the neon lights systematically zapped that side of you? My next class is at 12pm so thats nice and late....actually its in 12hrs time...ages...*sigh* Is anyone else here now? Talk to me! If I got ICQ would any of you all talk to me???
Ok thats my tupenny worth of nonsense.

Ah, I still have four years of high school until college and missing my early classes. But, I have to wake up at 7:30 Am EST...which is early to me. I just thought I'd bring this couple-of-years-old thread. I haven't even been at this site for as long as this has lasted. Only a few months really...

Anyway, late night on-line for me. After finishing a long week, after my spring break, of middle school, I need some relaxation. All I gotta say is;
Ryan, you rock. It's so cool, this thing started when you were a freshman in college and you're graduating in a couple months. So, it is like a time-capsule sort-of. Or like a journal-ish thing...okay. And it took me a couple of weeks to get time to read everything here! There's so many random thoughts, from Ryan to others.

And now I am adding my ramblings to this pile of stuff that's supposed to stay around forever. For the orignal topic of time zones...I don't have much to say on that. It definetly made me think. I mean, what is time really? What if there was no second, minute, hour, day, week, month, year, decade...Would we live around forever? Is time just something created from the imagination of someone centuries ago? Or is it needed?

Emus...tragic, yes. And hillarious to watch, if I may say so myself.

Like I said, so many random thoughts here that I'm not gonna comment on them all. But, here's my latest thoughts...

Is there a nothing? Really, is there ever a time when "nothing" is present. I mean, a living human or creature is never doing nothing. We are always breathing, so our hearts are always pumping blood. And then you can say air is nothing. But, it is something. It's a bunch of elements chemically combined to form a compound made of Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide and I'm sure there are other elements there, too. So does nothing exist? Every little thing on earth is something. So in a sense, nothing is something, and something is nothing at the same time. Because if there was nothing, then there would be no such thing as something. But, then again. Air IS nothing. You don't feel anything there when you move your hand in some empty space. And if there was nothing, and air is nothing, then that means wind is nothing. Because you can't see wind. You see things being blown by it; leaves, branches, people's hair and clothing.. What about clouds? All that is air and rain precipatipe. Or something like that anyway. What about the sky? There is no layer of blue seperating us from the beyond. It is merely an illusion, I won't even try to explain what it really is. And since it is just an illusion, or mirrored object or something in that sense, does it exist? I mean, there is nothing there. You can go up and up and up as high as you like and there isn't a wall of blue. You'll just end up in layers and layers of clouds. And then what's beyond that? There's space and the rest of the universe. Something is there, but what about the "air?" If there is no such thing as air, if air is a form of nothing, then what is there? What is between all of those stars and planets?

Okay, just looked up the word "nothing" in my dictionary. It says "No thing; not anything; nothingness." Geez, that helped a lot. What is nothingness? Since air does exist, and since there is a sky and clouds and wind and rain...This brings us to the beginning question: Is there such a thing as nothing? It's a word that's tossed around all the time. But, how would you say the definition, without using any re-phrasing like the dictionary did. And I don't mean the completly different meaning than what I am talking about. The version of "There's nothing to do!" and "oh, that book means nothing to me"

I mean, is there ever a state of nothingness? When there is nothing here or around....I could go on forever...just rambling on and on. But, I'll stop. I've marked my prescence here at Pip for now, in this thread. And that's the question that I always end up thinking about when I'm bored. One time I even talked about it with my little neighbor, James, who is about 6. And we came to the conclusion that there is no such thing as nothing. In which case, why is it the dictionary? Why is it a word?

A little more of my rambling, though I said I'd stop...three people you MUST check out(all singers): Ben Harper, Damien Rice, and the late Jeff Buckley. Also the band JET. Very good listening. And my fave poet, of course, is Maya Angelou. Very beautiful and honest work. You should check her out,though I doubt you guys haven't already.

Okay, I'm stopping for real now. Again, Nothing? Just some thoughts. And I know that this kind-a goes all over the place, sorry about that. It's confusing to read a little, but it's a confusing question, too.

if i could count the number of times that i started to write something here then quit, i'd be good at counting.  yeah.

i was going to post some odd half apology to anyone who wrote here expecting interaction then fell victim to my whims that like to forget about this thread.  but here i am posting what i was going to post but decided not to.  what oh what does that mean.

but, i think the reason nothing is a word (i've been running this around for awhile) is that if it wasn't a word, it would be nothing, and it couldn't be that, so it has to be a word.  or, if nothing wasn't a word, there would be nothing to describe nothing, and you can't have that, so you need nothing as a word.

Okay I haven't read all of this.. but I'm boreddd and tireddd, so I thought I'd say something...
Guess what time it is?
Yep, just after 5 AM here on the Pacific Coast.
I did dishes and laundry and sweeping and I've done the garbage and watered the plants... I need sleep!
The sad thing is this is my third night like this, in a row...
thats right. In a row!
I've gone through 11 days and 10 nights without sleep before. That was pretty bad.
Anyway, I have school today so I should probably go do some kind of homework or such. All I'm doing here is rambling anyway...
Ahh, yep, worthless rambling.
Gotta love it...

Always, Alyssa

they just finished testing all the fire alarms on my floor here at
work.  there's like 30 of them scattered around the floor.  and they
all started out perfectly in time, one constant buzz.  but then they
slowly started separating from each other.  none buzzed for exactly
the same length and none stayed off for exactly the same time.  
pretty soon it was like they were just echoing off one another
bouncing around the room in complete chaos.  as you moved around and
got closer to some and further from others the pattern would change,
and you could never predict which one would go off next or where the
next noise would come from or anything.  everyone else had their
fingers in their ears while they grimaced.  and i just wandered
around the floor with a grin on my face trying to hear all of the
alarms.  i wish i had a mic so i could have recorded it.  it reminds
me of something i read the other day about a guy who put a speaker
in a random drainage vent at a busy NYC intersection (he wired it up
to a nearby traffic light for power).  you could only hear it if you
stood immediately above the grate, and he didn't leave anything
there to tell people about it.  so it would be complete luck to hear
it and then it would be a mystery where it is coming from.  i want
to do that somewhere now.
