12:00 AM by Eric: 3/31/00 -- All right, that's Personal

3/31/00 -- All right, that's it. My enthusiasm and motivation for school is shot. Maybe it'll come back this summer, but right now it's on
vacation. It's very tempting, knowing that I could still do very well for
myself if I just forgot about school and went to work full time. Don't
get all freaked out on me; I'm not going to do it. But I could, and it
would be a hell of a lot more satisfying than my classes are right now.

12:00 AM by Eric: Cleaning is my anti-depressant Personal

It's amazing how, when you're confused about life, and a little depressed, cleaning the hell out of the apartment can make you feel
better. I think it might be a control thing. :)

From a NYTimes editorial by Maureen Dowd:

People scorned Bill Clinton's morals. But they love his economy, and the way he tackles hard things, like the Middle East, Ireland and guns.

What crack is she smoking? Yeah, I loved the way he tackled hard things like Serbia, Somalia, Rwanda… cruise missiling Sudan was a nice touch… and I'm not even going to start on Clinton and guns.

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/28/00 -- Heh. I'm a Personal

3/28/00 -- Heh. I'm a prophet. See? :) Okay, okay, so maybe it's a
perfectly logical move. In true Apple style, it's a perfectly logical
move… that they should have made 5 years ago.

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/24/00 -- Szechuan stir fry… Personal

3/24/00 -- Szechuan stir fry… <FURBIE>yummmmmmmmm</FURBIE>. Of course, it didn't
have any flaming death peppers in it, so it wasn't hard core
Szechuan. Still yummy. :)

Update: Riiiiiiiiiiight. Barenaked Ladies' One Week on the "New Rock" station, LRS, and Kid Rock on 98.9 … Riiiiiiiiiiight.

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/23/00 -- "The world's first Personal

3/23/00 -- "The world's first presidential ePimp Slap" -- Andrew Nelson. Ouch.

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/22/00 -- Yep. Wednesdays are Personal

3/22/00 -- Yep. Wednesdays are definitely my favorite weekdays. :)

Update: Oh, and apparently now there's a dance version of "Discovery Channel" playing on DJX. Who knew?

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/21/00 -- Odd. I don't Personal

3/21/00 -- Odd. I don't think I've ever heard Creed on DJX before. Yet more radio weirdness, I suppose.

Update: I heard em on 98.9 too. Huh.

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/18/00 -- So much for Personal

3/18/00 -- So much for Spring Break. The lousiest SB I've had in probably… I don't even know how long. Only good part of it was not
having to work in the lab and not having to sit through Musa's classes.

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/15/00 -- I don't know Personal

3/15/00 -- I don't know what it is with my cars and head gaskets. The Neon has developed an oil leak, among other relatively routine issues, so
it's in the shop till Friday. What sucks is that I have to pay for a
chunk of it (though thankfully not the majority). Oh well. The silver
lining is that for the next three days I'm driving a cinnamon 2000 Dodge
Intrepid (980 miles on it!) with all the luxuries. :)

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/10/00 -- And here I Personal

3/10/00 -- And here I was hoping we'd have someone interesting to vote for come
November. So much for that idea. I kind of liked McCain… not sure I
would have actually voted for him, but any pol who's willing to call Pat
Robertson, the Religious Right, and the far left "agents of
intolerance" has my attention.


Armageddon: damn good movie.

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/6/00 -- Glorious weather today. Personal

3/6/00 -- Glorious weather today. Political Philosophy met outside. :)

In other news, the federal government grabbed nearly half of my merit bonus for taxes. Bastards. Oh, and I hate the French. Or at least their

This is Hilarious.

12:00 AM by Eric: 3/4/00 -- Thanks to the Personal

3/4/00 -- Thanks to the unnamed person who notified me that it was, in fact, Disraeli who said the famous quote about the three kinds of lies,
and not Frost, as I had it attributed.
