Going to a wedding tomorrow
A friend from engineering undergrad. Maggie doesn’t really know her. We need to save all the money we can. I’m trying to work out how much to give without being insulting. So, I’m currently checking out the class of venue they’re having it at.
Okay, people, let's clear another one up
The faint of heart cannot handle when I feint becoming faint.
Oh, and other people are travelling, too.
My parents are spending a little under a month in Israel and Egypt before heading to China, where they will tour around Beijing and Shanghai for a bit. After the wedding, they’re going with Maggie’s parents to see the Terracotta Warriors in Xian. My aunt and uncle are going to Vancouver before the wedding, and also travelling to Xian. My sister and her BF are going to Beijing,...

ABCs of Me: Like it or not, you are all honourary...
I’ve noticed a bunch of you copy-pasted my post of “ABCs of Me” much like I did from others. Maybe you’re all just into it today, maybe it’s because I added the snazzy bold font. However, did you notice that I changed all the spellings of “favorite” to “favourite”? SUCK IT, YOU ARE ALL MY HONOURARY CANADIAN BITCHES NOW!
Wait a second....
So the bug I fixed in the Java Just-In-Time compiler solves a failure in the javac source compiler. Though it has uncovered a bug in the compiled code created by the source compiler that is dynamically compiled by our Just-In-Time compiler. So is the problem when we dynamically compile the compiler? The output of the compiler that is dynamically compiled? Does the compiled application fail when...
Elle ne parle pas français
Maggie is still annoyed every (seldom) once in a while over something that happened years ago. We spent a weekend in Montreal. On the Sunday, we visited a museum. We walked in together and I spoke to the ticket agent and ticket taker guys in French. So they assumed Maggie spoke French. She does not. They seemed to not be able to grasp how one person in a couple could speak it and the other could...
I feel like there's a positive trend, but you...
ABCs of Me
A - Age: 28 B - Bed size: Queen? King? It’s some sort of hybrid-size that comes from China. C - Chore you hate: Dusting. I’m allergic. D - Don’t eat: Red meat. I’m not morally against it. I just don’t like how it tastes. E - Essential start your day item: Breakfast. Some people skip it. I don’t. If I don’t have some sort of starch and/or cheese and/or egg...

Blonde joke goes horribly right
teneight: (via penishole)
I enjoy that weird feeling you get when you are pretty tipsy and not yet full-on drunk, when you turn your head it feels like your vision takes a little time to catch up to the new position of your eyes. Sometimes, I’ll sit and do that for upwards of an hour at a time.

I fucking hate motherfucking congee
Remember when everyone was named Jennifer?
angelablack: Yeah. Me too. Good times. I’d be all like “Jennifer!” and everyone would listen to me. We’d call each other secret names like “John” and “Wilbur” when we didn’t want the other Jennifers to overhear us.

eBooks and eReaders
In response to angelablack request for input in Crowdsourcing: eBooks and eReaders. Yes, I’ve already e-mailed this to you, but it might make for a good post, too. I recently got myself a Kindle 3 (the newest version). Before I get into that, I feel like it’d be helpful to give a bit of a backgrounder on my reading history. I read quite a bit. However, I do so sporadically. Up until...
December 21, 2012
You know the easiest way to make stupid historians of a future civilization really, really scared? Pick some random year in the future. Say, like, 34762CE. We’ll agree to never print any more calendars after that year. … … Profit.
From Kevin Reynolds' "The Count of Monte Cristo"...
Jacopo: You are wealthier than any man I've ever heard of. Whatever your problems were, they are over. What do you want to buy?
Jacopo: Okay, revenge. Who?
Edmond: Danglars, Villefort, Fernand and Mercedes.
Jacopo: Right. We kill these people, THEN we spend the treasure.
Edmond: No. We will study them, learn their weaknesses.
Jacopo: Why not just kill them? I'll do it. I'll run up to Paris... bam, bam, bam, bam. I'm back before week's end, then we spend the treasure. How is this a bad plan?

yowhatsthehaps: I have a tendency to take things too literally. For example, the phrase, “break out of a funk”. Play that funky music, white girl.
Tiiiime is on my side, yes it is!
“Fallen” is on AMC…. By the way, note the four dots for an ellipsis ending a sentence.
