"We Earthanized the aliens." - nyxdae  
I can't think of how to type interestingly at the moment. Things seem slightly foreign to me, rather disjointed ... vaguely wondering why I should invest such effort in what I do today. (Thank Goodness I have no finals on Dead Day! Looking forward to the Pancake Breakfast, though ...) Weird dreams, weird dreams ... as disjointed and disturbing as the last set. I'm kind of beginning to miss the whacked-out dreams that I used to have ... those were fun to talk about, because they were so utterly random. XP I didn't get much sleep last night ... I was out until about 3:30 a.m. working on the photo restoration (nope, didn't get it done over the weekend) ... came home, practically fell into sleep, got up at 7:00 a.m., and resumed working on it. I turned it in at about 10:15 a.m., so it's out of my hands now. The job I did fixing the lettering on the flag was pretty lame ... but by that point, I just wanted to get it done, not get it done well. (Cripes, if you reduce a photo to that state, you don't deserve to have it fixed by somebody else. -_o Sick, sick sadistic bastard who used black marker and Scotch tape ...) If I don't get an A in that class, I shall pout and moan. ^_^

The more I think about it, the less I believe I would "succeed" in the graphic design world. Besides the very capricious definitions of what you should reach for and get across, there's just something about it which bugs me, makes me feel uncomfortable ... our ability to so easily change what we all think we know makes me uneasy. Some people who have that power do not deserve it. Some people abuse it, as happens with anything. I could do it properly if I was so inclined ... but I am too out of sync with most people to be "successful" (what is "edgy" to you? "Edgy elegance" ...? My definition is not the same as yours ...), and I don't want to do something which I will be kicking myself for years later.

Cheezits for breakfast, Easy Mac for lunch. Who knows what new nutritional low dinner will bring? There is a candy cane with a message about God, Christ, Christmas, and the true meaning of the candy cane on my desk. I like neither Christianity nor peppermint ... what am I supposed to do with this? I would be annoyed by the number of prayer meeting invitations and other religious handouts I receive ... but I think that it is an honest mistake on their part, and not meant to annoy/convert me. I rarely tell anyone what I believe in, and I certainly wouldn't expend the energy necessary to uselessly inform my RA and other residents on this floor that I do not believe in their God. XP

I updated Brainfuzz the other day. Now, I just need to start working on my redesign of Hammerspace for my Design Orientation final ... I wonder if I could bug my boss into letting me use the huge Alumni and Development scanner after hours ...? Probably not ... although she lets me work in a separate room and do nearly whatever I wish in order to get the job done, she's very much a stickler for "the rules," even moreso than I am. I would not be using the scanner for work-related purposes. XP

"I want sustained badness! I want badness you put effort into!"
- Lyle, my drawing instructor

When asked if we should abide by the "do not produce anything which will disgust me" rule, our teacher suddenly changed his mind and said that we should do our damned best to do our worst ever. Suffice it to say that it was a very amusing last figure drawing class for this semester. Fairybane, if thou art tired of looking at old wrinkly people, you should come to school here, because the models are all girls from the theatre department. Next semester, we're inviting drag queens to model for us. : P I'm sure you'd feel right at home.

Nair, I'm sorry it's taking me so long to finish uploading the yyhkb folder. You may kick me. I'm trying to convince my family to take my computer home over Winter Break, so that I may continue my tardy efforts when I have nothing else to do.

That photo assignment you were doing seems like... shit. Don't worry too much, cause graphic design isn't about piecing broken photos together! x_x;
