The 5 Stages of the All Nighter…

You’ve heard of the 5 Stages of Grief… now… the Five Stages of the All Nighter:

Denial: This is the portion of the day you spend trying to get the work done so you can sleep at night.

Anger: When the all nighter becomes inevitable, you make damn sure everyone knows you have to pull one, and you’re not pleased.

Bargaining: This is that part of the night where you think you might get it done in time to catch 2 hours…

Depression: Or maybe you could lay down for just 20 minutes… yeah right.

Acceptance: You realize there will be NO SLEEP, and crack another can of Carbonated Caffeine, and buckle down. The most work will be done during this stage… unless you succumbed to the temptation to sleep in the previous stage of the all nighter, and there IS no all nighter, cause you sure as hell didn’t wake after 20 minutes.

I think I’ve just reached Acceptance.

They Don’t Call it Hell Week for Nothing

My head is going to pop. Seriously. I have Man of La Mancha Rehearsals Like every night, and I knew that would happen when I signed on… honestly I’m used to that sort of thing, but I didn’t expect Hell week for this Play to Fall on the week that my Professors decide to dump every project in the world on my head. I have HCI Group Meetings almost every day after classes, and when I don’t have that I have to be in the Animation Lab to finish my Animation 1 Homework, and except today I have to meet my mom after work because I need to do my Taxes, oh… and I have a Final Project Proposal due for Animation Survey. Blech.

I don’t know when I’m going to do my Animation 1 HW. I can do everything eles backstage at the play if need be. I can take my laptop and get it done… no problem. *Sigh.* I’m back posting two other entries today, that I wrote before but never had the chance to type up, so I’m keeping this short. No excuse to waste further time. My poor Webcomic is suffering and I haven’t spent nearly as much time on IRT as I should have been. But Before I go… I should like to bitch a bit more about my hair.

As if I haven’t bored you to death with all that already.

Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say, to Irritate people when it’s Cold!

Someone at our Local @Work Radio Station, thought it would be funny for them to play “Mele Kalikimaka.” You know… it’s the thing to say on a warm Hawaiian Christmas Day… Except of course that it’s 8 below zero (Fahrenheit) today. This is the last time anyone wants to hear about a warm Hawaiian Christmas. Seriously people, have some tact… we’re all freezing our assess off. I suppose they are trying to encourage us to think warm thoughts, but I don’t’ really think it’s working. Also the lady who gives the news updates is far too cheerful. She tells us how a dude got stabbed, a murder trial started and some poor family got all their Christmas gifts stolen… all in a very chipper, very annoying voice that makes me want to reach through the speakers and throttle her. I mean she sounds that happy about bad stuff happening to people.

Oh, I let it slip to my kid brother that I blog and now he’s trying to find it…  so in case he’s reading: Hi Ricky!!! Wubbooo so much my adawwabibble little brother. *Pinches Cheeks and gives a kiss on the Cheek.* Oh, btw, he’s 17. *Grins Evily.* I don’t suppose I have much to worry about anyhow… he already thinks I’m a freak… *Higgles.* What’s he gonna know of toaster jokes?

Well lets see… it’s been a long time since I’ve blogged… Holiday stuff and end of semester project cram… Ok… soo…

So yes, I worked on projects for a long while, and then I took Lyta into the shop, and got her keyboard fixed. You’ll now note that my ‘i’ key functions again… everybody celebrate. I also got the bay door on the side where the firewire cards go (and I assume other cards but I’ve only ever used firewire cards in it) so Lyta’s practically good as new, except that she refuses to accept the wireless signal in my office… that’s ok because I have my jump drive with me so I can transfer this to the desktop to post it up.

Remind me never to wear posts at work. Normally I remember this… always wear fishhook earrings at work… when I wear earrings at work, so the phone doesn’t stab me in the ear. Hazards of being a telephone operator I guess… but today is the office Christmas party so I wore festive holiday drop down posts… they got a bow on the post with a sprig of holly dangling down from the bow which is really three oblong green jewels… it’s kinda girly, and they stab me when I answer the phone but damnit I like these earrings… sooooooo I’m just wearing the right one… and the left is on my desk, where I won’t loose it. It’s not like I haven’t gone about with only one earring in before.

What else have I been doing since last I blogged… I did all of my Christmas shopping, I’d say what I got for folks, but the bro might be sniffing around, took several trips… the first was last Tuesday, a week before today, took care of my Brother, and my Mother and my Grandparents in that trip, and got breakfast at the Friendly’s in the Mall and caught a movie, in celebration of finishing school. Then I went out the other day with my mother, and took care of my Aunts and Uncles, and Cousins. Papa’s taken care of too, but if I say how that will give away what I gottim…

Ok, so I’m done with Christmas Shopping, but I still have to get my cousin Shayla’s birthday present. She was born on the 26th. Meh… I have to many balls up in the air to keep juggling like this.

Oh also, I recently got Evanescence’s “Anywhere but Home” Album, which totally rocks… and, uh… the rest of the time, I’ve been working at my job where I don’t get much web because Lyta won’t play ball so rather than typing on the desktop’s keyboard which has a lot more resistance than Lyta’s and is loud I’ve been reading old reviews on TWoP, and laughing my butt off.

Got around to reading the Lone Gunmen ones now, cause I’m done with the X-Files… though actually I just stopped in the middle of reading their ER extra, a review of “The Librarian Quest for the Spear” because, I just thought I should blog… I dunno… *Shrigs.* Anyhow yes I was rereading the Review for the Pilot of the Lone Gunmen and remembering the creepy feeling in the pit of my stomach that remembering that eppy gave me 6 months later when the saving the Twin Towers from having a commercial airliner run into them with one of our intrepid heros on board plotline… seemed really eerily prophetic. So I looked it up on Google and found a thing on Wikipedia what was really creepy. Apparently that eppy was airing in Australia when it happened, and was interrupted by newscasts of the real thing. I have to wonder if it was interrupted before or after the airliner part came into the plot, cause, if it was after… then I wonder how many people disbelieved what they saw… though it was part of the program… especially when you consider Fox’s somewhat sketchy news reliability.

Right then… I guess I’ll go back to reading TWoP, and you can go back to your regularly scheduled… whatever you were doing before you read this.

Had me a Blast…

Mr. Base Too High, who lives below me and one room over… I think, who I can only hope is switching dorms over winter break, is playing “Summer Lovin” at top volume. I can Identify “Summer Lovin” From the Grease Soundtrack… by only the base track… That’s really sad. Meh.

Well Last Night I went to See the RPI Player’s “Theater Slam” and OMG it was so damn Funny. The “Wells Relocation Agency” was chock full of BAD Special Effects, a Princess and some French Dudes… and “The Misadventures of Ohio” was completely hilarious… especially when Thea broke down into this exposition about how “look you don’t’ get it, I’m a 12 year old Asian boy in an Airport. I don’t speak Australian, I only speak Fake Chinese and Bad English!!!” because of course in this play people in Australia speak another language… which sounds to the audience exactly like English… and there’s a fellow named “Euroshilling” who’s a lot like the Chief in Inspector Gadget in that he was forever popping out of suitcases and phone booths and stuff. All the special effects were from people in the wings yelling “BOOM” or “Rat-tat-tat-tat!” and stuff… The whole thing was absolutely hilarious both in the writing, the acting, and the errors that abounded. But that’s what you expect when people put together a two plays in 24 hours. It was a total blast. Soooooooo Funnay…

I do worry about this one fellow I know though, who apparently injured his ribcage in a fall involving one of the trapdoors on the stage, and went to the hospital… I know it’s not my business, but I do hope something will go out on the mailing list to let us know if he’s all right.

Anyhow I gots to finish my Writing to the World Wide Web Final Project… Meffle… meant to do it yesterday but spent the whole day sleeping and reading TWoP summaries of X-Files Episodes… well at least until the evening… then I watched LnO SVU reruns… and went to bed. *Higgles.* I’m terrble…

Right… back to my HW.

Well… I’m done all that’s due today… my Writing to the World Wide Web course Final is still outstanding but that’s not due till tomorrow night. I’ll start on that tomorrow… I’ll have all day to do it now that I’ve done everything that’s due for all my other classes. should probably do a rewrite of my second paper for Utopian Lit though… meffeffle…

This weeks SVU was even worse than Last Weeks (which I snarked on last week… Funny, but awful.) This week we got a gawd awful Fin-centric Episode.

First off, what was with the mirror image shooting thing eh? Does everyone on Law and Order Take it in the shoulder or what eh? Alot of people were saying this was alot like the Alex/Liv “Loss” thing… and that this devalued that…. but while I see similarities, I don’t think it devalues anything… note how she went for the napkins rather than put her actual hand on the wound… besides which, Fin calls Everyone Baby… it’s not the same as Sweetheart.

And after the first Five minutes… there’s nothing worth mentioning at all, aside from the dumbassed grin Casy had on her face shaking hands with the Narcotics Kid, and the disturbing Smile Fin had on his face at the end of the episode. Other than that… I’m not sure what the hell the writers were smoking… it’s like they took a Fin A Plot they had lying around, and a Fin B Plot they had lying around, and decided that rather than putting them in separate episodes, they’d throw them together at once… but more disturbing is that they managed to do a FinCentric Episode without Munch.

Meffle… this episode was absolutely Fintastic /sarcasim

Meantime… I joined the TWOP forums because well, I find that stuff funny, but some of the rules over there are a little bit nuts. I got yelled at for using the word “Um” and apparently my ‘8^)’ faces qualify as “signing” my posts… it’s not like I put “~ Mayonnaise Jane Queen of the Nile and Webmaster of various shit that no one Cares about.” Normally I wouldn’t complain, i have no problem complying with rules… But I’m getting the distinctest impression that everyone there thinks I’m a troll or sommat, over a couple of first offenses. That’s what gets to me the most. I’m a good citizen of the web. I am… really!!! It’s not my fault that they decided to label the rules as a FAQ instead of labeling the damn things as rules.
