It should be illegal to transport houses down major roadways during rush hour. Every week there is at least one morning where traffic on 565 is totally snarled because there is half of a damn house taking up two lanes, going 45 mph. What kind of an idiot tries to transport a house through the heaviest traffic of the day? I think I'm going start an organization to express my indignation, but I'll need a good acronym. OTBHFMR just doesn't flow.

So...I got a little bored at work today. I've been meaning to get rid of my old layout for months now, but I haven't had the chance to sit down and think up a new one. I still haven't. I threw this together because I couldn't stand the last layout another minute.

Tonight at 7 PM there is a SEDS meeting in RI M-50. In addition to discussing methods to revive the club from its two-year slump, they'll also be talking about the Artemis Society. Very cool, very interesting. I've been following them a little ever since I took fluids last year. Jessica, Jeff, Greg, and all the rest of you should definitely be there.

Ever have one of those days where nothing went wrong and you're actually pretty happy at the general outcome of everything, but deep down you're just looking for an excuse to let all your hurt and all your anger at the general unfairness of the universe explode at anyone who happens to get in your way?

Earlier today my dad sent me a list of pages he found on NASA's web site dealing with environmental systems design. Working from those, I found this book: "Designing for Human Presence in Space: An Introduction to Environmental Control and Life Support Systems." That should be enough to keep me occupied for a while. *grin*

Amazingly enough, my car is actually silver. Not brown, not tan, not beige, not grey. Silver. I finally bathed the poor thing today; I'm sure it feels naked without its customary coat of grime. In addition to that, I also got its oil changed, its tires rotated, its alignment checked, and its tags renewed. It is very happy - I am very poor.

"There is ample evidence that the horrific events of September 11 have been carefully manipulated to switch public focus from Osama Bin Laden and Al Queda who masterminded the September 11th attacks, to Saddam Hussein who did not. The run up to our invasion of Iraq featured the President and members of his cabinet invoking every frightening image they could conjure, from mushroom clouds, to buried caches of germ warfare, to drones poised to deliver germ laden death in our major cities."

"In other news, Casa Mexicana, located on the corner of Jordan and Bob Wallace, burned to the ground tonight. The cause of the fire has been attributed to a bald drunken patron who set fire to his nachos after mistaking them for a Wiccan. He and his two companions fled the scene, stopping only to remove the hubcaps from a car parked outside. Huntsville police are still searching for the three suspects. Citizens are advised that the suspects are potentially dangerous, especially if you are Wiccan."

In case you hadn't already heard, tonight from about 10:15 to 11:00 central time there's going to be a total lunar eclipse. The entire eclipse will start at about 8 PM and last until 1 AM. You should at least go outside and take a look, no matter where you are. :-) It's nifty.

*giggle* Look! It's me! Well...okay, not really, but the comic's funny anyway. I'm not angry, I'm just a little jumpy. On edge. It's just one of those mood-swing kind of days. If I had a tail, it'd be twitching.

I was looking through my old Geocities sketches page and I realized that I haven't posted anything new since 2001. Yegads, but those things are old. I started thinking that I should throw some new stuff up there, since I'd like to think I've improved at least a little. *looks pained* Then I realized that I haven't actually finished a single drawing since June of 2001. *blink* That's just sad, people. I've started on a few drawings over the last two years, mostly just to study something I have trouble with, but I either lost interest or just never had the time to finish them. Even last summer when I wasn't taking classes I hardly ever picked up my sketchbook.

It's a damn good thing I don't have balls because if I did, not only would I be a freak, but it's also a sure bet God would have kicked me in them at least twice before I got to work today. That's just the kind of day today is. I have the distinct feeling that it really shouldn't be gorgeous outside; rather, there should be some sort of apocalyptical weather event raining doom down upon the city of Huntsville. That would suit my mood much better. Dooooooom.

Tonight Barbara hosted a graduation party for our Senior design class. It was lot a fun, but at the same time depressing because everyone is getting ready to go their separate ways. I'm happy that everyone is moving on to bigger and better things, but it's going to be really lonely next semester without them. It's been the same group since pretty much since our freshman year and it's sad to see them all go while I'm stuck behind for one more semester.

On a whim, I decided that since the ASCE chapter is gearing back up again for the summer, I'd begin composing the introduction for next year's design paper. Suprisingly enough, it was much easier to write than this year's.

As of 10 AM this morning, the entire south side of campus was under water. The police blocked off Lakeside Drive completely and were just reopening the loop from Technology Drive. The duck pond was so high that it reached past the road and halfway up the hill and only two inches of railing on the dock were visible. The culvert under the road leading to JRC and the police station was underwater and the area across from the Rec Center on the north side of Holmes was threatening to flood over the road. It was quite impressive! And now we're hearing that whole roads have been washed away downtown and the VBC had water four feet deep running through the halls. That's just amazing.

I've discovered it's very few people who understand the appeal of foam fighting. Most of you out there can't comprehend how much fun this past weekend was, but I had an awesome time. I actually only fought Friday and Saturday mornings, but the rest of the time was spent either watching battles or just relaxing. Half the appeal of a Dagorhir event is just sitting in the woods, enjoying the quiet, and not worrying about time or work or anything at all. The parties were fun too and being left by myself forced me to make some new friends that I might not have started talking to otherwise. *grin*
