Cool link

Sunday, December 30th, 2007

I just saw this cool site about cool uses for the Wiimote. You need to check it out now. Definitely look at the videos. Soooo coooool…

My ankle is still bothering me a little, so unfortunately the entire plan to go to the gym regularly is shot. Perhaps this coming Saturday I’ll go to my Pilates class, and get some exercise in that doesn’t inolve pounding on my feet.
After the painful last two days, today turned out to be quite nice. […]

Long, lonely road

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

Indeed one of the main troubles of spending 5 months sitting here alone and studying, is that it’s unbelievably lonely. It’s nice that I have a friend also going through this with me, but it still comes down to studying on my own. Being a creature who enjoys the contact of others, this is so […]

I must say that this year is turning out to be The Most Painful Year I’ve ever subjected myself to. And by that I am referring to the academic year from July 2007 to June 2008. Ugh.

What is ironic is that the rejection letter from that funding agency was dated the same day my manuscript got accepted for publication. Granted that one was a long shot and really wasn’t my first choice being that it was the smallest monetary amount and the least relevant funding source, it would still have been […]

So far, my holiday has been very productive in regards to relaxing and in regards to writing stuff, […]

White Christmas afterall

Monday, December 24th, 2007

The weather forecasts were that we weren’t going to have a white Christmas this year, but by some miracle, despite warm temperatures and it pouring rain all weekend, the snow has stuck and it even flurried a little overnight, and the world is still a pretty white. A white Christmas afterall.
In all expectations to have […]

Turning the other cheek

Sunday, December 23rd, 2007

Handed over this morning around 8:30am and then I was free for the holidays. Despite people whining that I got 1-1/2 days while everyone else got 2, I think I certainly worked my share. To be honest, the 1/2 day Friday was far and away busier than Saturday. The first day of the holidays is […]

I found this haunting photo online, and wanted to share it:
