Today's Mighty Oak

"Briefly he looked about him at the room he'd made, pleased by his efforts, then, picking up his pen again, he began to write, setting down the final words. The ending that was not a final ending."

Laxman has been sending transmissions from the cavern, apparantly he's meeting with a potential invenstor!

Perhaps the ending has not yet been written…

List ten things that make you happy in no particular order and then tag as many people as you want…

1. Books
2. Finding awesome music on my computer that I didn't realize I had (case in point: "What I didn't know" by Athenaeum)
3. Tea
4. Quiet snowstorms – it is dark, the snow is coming down fairly hard, but at least some of it is big fluffy flakes.  The christmas lights and street lights are on, but no cars are going by.  It's quiet.  Even the parkway (right behind my house) is quiet.  I can just stand outside, watch my breath, watch the snow falling and destress.  It's quiet.
5. Being able to go out with my friends (myself being the youngest, I used to get us kicked out of bars)
6. Camp Freedom (Diesel kicking for distance, the last night stand on the bridge, bridge jumping, the family, the monkeys, the roadtar/coffee, RIGHT FOOT!)
7. Guava juice
8. Deep conversations
9. Awkward pauses in conversation (other people hate them, I love them)
10. Knowing I've got a very good education, even though I'm in one of the "joke majors" (as I always say, as long as you put the work in, it's an amazing major)

I got tagged by Jolene….I'll tag Amy, Mary and Tim

And for once, Aurelius Hall's network is on the fritz, I can't get onto AIM or MSN and it's bugging me beyond belief (I have so much time that I can talk with you Tim, and I can't….it's so sad, but if this doesn't clear up, I'll be good when I get home, I hope!)

From the same people who brought you the "Name Mike's Car Competition*" and the "Name Mike's Plant Competition**" now comes the "Name Mike's Christmas Tree Competition"

Hurry!  we're only accepting votes until Wednesday:

Elliott Fir
Shenron the Destroyer
Tinsel Monger
Jingle Bells
Judy 'Garland'
Norton's Festivous Festoon
Patsy the Pine
Ploppy the Christmas tree
Gregor the Grand
Her Royal Highness, George William Mary the Third
Mr. Jingle-Jangle

Extra Bonus Vote:
Should the Christmas Tree's name include the suffix "the balm of Gilead"?

*Winner – Commodore Eli Ruth Triscuit Schmidtlap

**Winner – Norbert

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In November I got in line at the supermarket at the same time as someone else and I didn't yield (-8 points). Last Thursday I donated bone marrow to [info]tmaster in a life-saving procedure (300 points). Last month I gave [info]laugh434 a wet willie, then I took it back (-5 points). In October I had a shoot-out with rival gang lords on the 5 near LA (-76 points). In July I gave change to a homeless guy (19 points).

Overall, I've been nice (230 points). For Christmas I deserve a pony!

Ok, so it's been like, forever since I"ve updated.  I've just been so incredibly busy with school.  I seem to be doing just enough to get through (although I really don't know how I'm going to survive tomorrow….), but I'm up until about 3 each night and then up at 8:30 and do it all over again.

It's been nice here, cold, windy and snowy.  I like it.  Although the Commodore needs a bath.  I just picked up a St. Vincent decal (the bookstore now has ones that go on the outside in case you have tinted windows, like he does).

We got a Christmas tree and of course I'm running the obligatory: Name Mike's Christmas Tree Contest.  I'm accepting names until Friday and then we'll vote.

Overall though I feel so shitty, I just feel so forgotten and tossed aside.  I know everyone's busy, but at least tell me that, don't tell me how important I am and then forget all about me.

And of course, I'm sick of the self-serving adminstration of this school, they can all shove it (oh, my mother has taught be to be vindictive very well!)

But as always, life goes on as it must, I finished my website (although I have to uplaod it somewhere, but that isn't required for the class, just the design), my electronic meda final is just about done, and I just finished glueing my publication production project (a game for first graders teaching them the alphabet and animals).  Just a philo paper, an accounting exam and one last issue of the paper (comes out Monday).

 Finals week can't come soon enough, but then I want time to stop…

I just experienced one of my now favorite moments of going to college at St. Vincent: Four people (myself being one of them) carrying a coffin across campus, and no one asking anything about it or questioning us!

Again, it's been a while since my last update, sorry about that.  I guess I never realize how busy I am.  Last week was supposed to be a fairly easy week but that got shot to hell.

This upcoming week I have a layout of the paper to do (plus a ton of work in the office since we finally got internet), a philosophy paper and study for my accounting exam.

unnoticed , unheard and ignored by all, the little stick figure over in the corner slowly and painfully fades away into oblivion

It's been a while since I've posted, sorry all.  I've pretty much been disappearing anyway.  Between all the work I've had to do, and well, everything else, I've been so exhausted.

I really don't want to do anything this weekend.  I'm working the haunted underground (everyone should come, except Tim…becasue I don't think it would be worth the price of airline tickets at this point…now if it was like a month ago then I'd so go ahead!).  I'm really excited, I was part of the group that did it freshmen year, and we're all back together with some new additions and it will be great.

Other than that, I just want to disappear, as in, I really don't want to go to the party on Saturday.

Off to finish the newspaper, which comes out Monday.  It's a special 12-page edition!

Anyone have O.A.R.'s "Love and Memories"

If so, let me know so I can get it from you…thanks!

Two posts in one day, I know, how exciting:

From the people who brought you "The Name Mike's Car Competition" comes: "Name Mike's Plant Competition"!  Now accepting names!

The plant is green and leafy….yeah, I can't give you much more than that, it was $1.33 at Lowe's…stop by to see it if you'd like
