here's one for you... i realized today that most of you don't know that i wrote all the code that this place works on (with the minor exception of most of chatchat)... and if anyone wanted a copy of it, or to use a version of it that would be modified to their needs, i'd be happy to let them use it. the main reason i still write stuff for it is because i like the fact that i can offer anything livejournal or xanga can, given a day or two, and it's all mine, so anyone other than myself making use of it would make me feel a little more validated, hehe.

so far, pyrex is the only one who has a copy of it, other than here... and he doesn't even use it, so... there you have it, that's my schpiel.

Last Saturday I went to a wedding shower for a girl who I was roomates and very good frends with years ago. We've grown apart, but there was no animosity even though we parted in an akward way (for another story). So after the shower we get together with her groom (a guy I introduced her to) and a bunch of his friends, brothers, and their friends and frats buddies. The bar we went to was a good time, and I had a fun bet with Bride's little sis about phone #s and such so I thought everything was on the up and up. Until we got outside.

I just got back from a 4 day backpacking trip in the Adirondacks with my roommate and a friend of mine. We had a fantastic time, did some great hiking, saw some great views, and had a run in with a black bear. Oh yeah, I also got giardia. My encounter with the bear was pretty exciting, but right now, the giardia is at the forefront of my mind. Oh well, off to the doctor. I'll post the details of the trip later.

Why does America have to be so stupid? Why can't we have a drug policy that makes sense?

from the wrangle: a new look at time

supposedly, in this paper, the author answers some of the major paradoxes (achilles vs. the turtle and Zeno) concerning our understanding of time...

i'm going to write a LOT more on this in a bit, but i have to work on work right now... don't let me forget.
