Current Mood: tiredtired
So I'm taking a road trip at the end of this month. I am driving from Miami to Oklahoma and then to Louisiana. Actually I'm stopping at orlando, Baton Rouge, Dallas, and Tulsa before returning to Baton Rouge. This'll take about 7 days.

I don't know if anyone is interested and able, but company would be great.

Current Mood: busybusy
so, i've been very busy, i'll get to that another time, first down to business!!

my PC has decided to crap out on me , and i upgraded my ibookG4 from Mac Os10.3.9 to 10.5.1... it took two days of installation problems, but we pulled through. that is ofcourse after over a year of trying to get new RAM...

anywho, the point of the matter is that it is abundantly clear i require a new machine. i have a budget of $1k. a friend of mine got a PC at best buy for $600 and says its "really good" .... i found a refurbished mac powerbook for not quite $900 on apple.com

so, i require advice. please, i would like input.

Oct. 2nd, 2008 @ 02:42 pm Tropical Island Paradise worries
Current Mood: quixoticquixotic
So, as you all may know (or not), I love on a tropical island paradise. It is also a third world country. We get power outages fairly frequently. Unexplained, unplanned and rather inconvenient. However, this one beats them all, i think. We'll see.

Last night one of my friends, who lives on the other side of town in "Frigate Bay" complained she didn't have power, but got it back and we chatted online, complained about studying and wished each other luck on studying some more. Anywho, its fairly common that one part of the island won't have power and another will, nevermind that she's like 5 miles away, there's about 7 areas between her and me. I went to bed, and was sleeping comfortably with just the fan on me. When i hear the air conditioners outside my window stop humming, i feel and hear my fan stopping and the street light goes out. I wake up at the first change, and wait a moment, it comes back, i close my eyes but the light goes out again. Yep, power was definitely out. it was 3:45a. i rolled over and put my comp into standby. It would either come back or it wouldn't. so i opened my door all the way opened my window all the way and lay back down without covers. Soon it rains and cool air comes in my window and cools my body. I sleep. I wake, and everything is still off. Thankfully i have yet to open the fridge. I take a very quick shower and the hot water barely lasts. I know i can't check anything online, so i leave early.

At school, i learn no one had power. as of yet, this is still not alarming, but fairly amusing. Much later in the day we learn this is not your regular power outage. There was an email sent out claiming that power company was having trouble and there was going to be rationing, and that they would let us know when our areas were scheduled to have power. I worry about my fridge. But then, the rumour mill/grapevine comes up with more information. There may have been a fire at the power generator (and/or sabotage) and two of the big generators were out. At administration, i asked how long we could expect it to be out, from my favorite admin guy. And it depends on the amount of damage. If it can be fixed, days. If it needs replaced, it may be till December before we have normal power again.

I called my mom and let her know. She reassured me that they would probably fix it quickly. I told her about my exams and that it was going well with them. She was worried but happy to hear i was ontop of it.

I'm not sure how i'm going to cook food in the dark and without perishables. I know i have candles and that i have battery powered lanterns... but soon the supplies for these are going to run out at home and on the island if it lasts too long. Sigh.

I will be going out tomorrow with friends again for dinner and a movie (at the new movie theater). I'll have to post about the first time, that was fun! lol.

Anyway, I think i need rope and a place to hang my hammock so i can sleep tonight.... other than that, life goes on and there is power at school.

Living on a Tropical Island Paradise is always an adventure.

This Adventure was brought to you by the letter Z and the number 13.

Sep. 16th, 2008 @ 01:00 pm breakfast
So, i come in early this morning, to school so that i can buy me some breakfast and be assured i'll have it before class starts. yes, they take a while to make a bagel sandwhich.

so, i wait in line, i'm called up and i ask for my snapple and a turkey and cheese on a bagel. i sit back, but theni think, having it cut in half would be nice, so i ask for that. they agree. it all appears to be clear. i get my bagel. it has cream cheese.

i apologize "oh i'm sorry! i asked for a turkey and cheese" . so, she goes back and brings out my sandwhich. i'm happy, it looks like its cut in half and i have my drink. i go to my classroom to eat.

i get to class. i open the wrapper of waxed paper around my sandwhich. and lo and behold it *has* turkey and cheese.... however it also has cream cheese.... wtf? ... oh well, i'm hungry so i eat it, too late by then to go up and get the right sandwhich in time for class.

for lunch, i offer a different challenge to a different food provider at school. i ask for *half* an order of fries. 15 minutes later, i come back and ask again. i got it, and at 2/5 the original price! =)

one win on the food today.

etiquette is when you can follow the rules .
good manners is when you can recognize a bad social situation and save face for someone.

not all can do both.

a Brother sent this to me. i find it hilarious, awesome fun and disturbing to boot.

in other news, i'm finding this website to be very informative, and so far holds to the same truths i hold.

its been pounding rain on and off for two days. and the seas have been rough, the winds have been strong. really strange effects on me.
