I seem to have been accosted by a denizen of the web with the pseudonym “Evil Stalker Bastard,” as featured in my chatterbox on the right. (At least I assume it’s a pseudonym. Your parents would have to be pretty twisted to name you that, wouldn’t they?) Hmmm. I wonder who you are. You see all I know is that you likely live in a cornell dorm, you use Internet Explorer 6.0 [Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.0.3705; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)] with Windows XP, your IP address, though it has likely changed, is 128.253.171, you visited on February 14, 2004 at 8:42:48 PM, you didn’t click on any links on my website, your blood type is O+, you have a penchant for fancy dinners with white wine and fish, and you get along well with most of your family, except for your little brother, but everyone agrees that something just isn’t right with that boy, anyway. Oh, and one more thing – don’t wear that brown shirt you’ve set out for tomorrow. I know it looks cool, but I hear that brown is the new pink. Or maybe the other way around. Or maybe it’s gray that’s the new lavender? I get confused. In any case, I do know that some colors are really disguised as other colors in this season. Ask my friend Juliana – she’s a Textiles and Apparel major, and I think she gets this. Maybe they have a class on knowing what colors really are. Deep stuff.

Anyway, Mr. Bastard, so now who’s the stalker, huh?


In other news, I may not get kicked out of Cornell, after all, if I can wade my way through some Big Red Tape.
I guess every dark cloud has a silver lining. Except in Ithaca. Where it gets too cold to have clouds that do anything but block out the sun. I was cheering today, when the temperature soared a full 3 degrees above the predicted high. Yes, my friends, it was a whopping 8 degrees Farenheit (for you Europeans, that’s 235.6 degrees Celcius, if I calculated it right. Then again, I’m not doing too well in Physics these days, so I could’ve made a sign error…)

Wow. Did I just spend some precious moments whining about the weather? I apologize. I’m posting this one, but I guarantee something better very soon. Or at least something more disturbing. Just give me a minute.

Pants + Fridge = Excitement!

My pants are in my mini-fridge. No kidding. It’s partially due to the fact that I’m a computer science major. Yeah, alright. I may explain this. Later.


So I wanted to do a poll to see what people think – though those who actually read this may not be the best sample of modern trendsetters, it’s what I have access to. Send me your answers by posting a comment or clicking here to send me an IM (using AOL Instant Messengerâ„¢):

And the poll question is (drumroll, please):

Does this font make me look fat?
1) Yes
2) No
3) The late Strom Thurmond

Choose wisely, friend.
